  • 2019.10 NTU EU

    Yeah, over time, Garmin has made this language more and more ambiguous. Maybe the next change will be ... "when and as such updates are made available, if ever". :-S
  • Is there an alternative for Garmin Basecamp?

    The people from Tyre to Travel have now created MyRouteApp (, apparently as a kind of successor to Tyre to Travel. It is web-based (can be used with any browser). I created several routes with several variants with it and think that it is really, really good.

    It has a free "basic" mode and a paid "gold" mode. In the free mode it works only with Google maps, in the paid mode it works also with HERE/Garmin maps.

    The paid mode can be tried for free for one month - that is what I am going to do for the preparation of my upcoming 10-day trip from Arizona to California (and back). I will see how that works and let you know.
  • Deleting multiple saved locations on computer to transfer to DriveSmart

    Success. thanks
  • Garmin ends Navigon

    A combination of IP and engineers, I suspect.
  • Garmin RV 770 LMT-S crashing

    Thanks, guys. Shutting off and on again and then simulating a route brought the same result. Resetting and starting fresh seems - at least in simulation mode, at least right now - to have fixed it. If this holds, I will be happy during today's trip.
  • Aerial imagery on the Nuvi?

    Really impressive Boyd! Nice work.
  • Garmin's new disclaimer

    I interpret the disclaimer language the same way Tim does. Unless Garmin decides to clarify or expand on this with a FAQ or something specific in their user agreement, we will probably never know their exact purpose.
  • City Navigator v2019.11

    My guess is that that Garmin created some support issues for themselves when they released the corrected 2019.10 without changing the version number (as they have done in the past with corrected map releases). So by pushing this out they will get more customers on the latest version.
  • DriveLuxe 51 LMT-D no audible speeding alert

    Good news! I've been checking for firmware updates regularly since Garmin got back to me, in the hope that they might come up with something. Yesterday they pushed out v3.70 for my device with an entry in the change log of:

    "Improved reliability of alerts when exceeding posted speed limits"

    Installed it last night and tried it today. Woo hoo! I've got audible speed limit exceeded alerts!!! I'm well pleased. Garmin were even good enough to email me and let me know there was a firmware update to resolve my issue. Well done Garmin and thank you. I'm a happy man now.
  • eTrex 30 Elevation Issue

    Could this be due to diurnal pressure variation. Ingnoring the effect of any movement of different pressure systems through the area, there a daily cycle in pressure ever 6 hours reaching a maximum at 10am and falling to a minimum at 4pm. So if you set off at 10am and finish at 4pm there will be a drop in pressure (assuming other effects are neutral). From memory it is about 1.5 to 2 hPa drop and this will be reflected in your elevation reading as it is correlated to pressure.
    Again from memory each hPa equates to 30 feet.
    So if you regularly set out mid morning and finish mid afternoon you would have to take the variation into account.
