  • This solution is not good for those who don't like window mount. I use the beanbag mount, I like the freedom of easily positioning my gps ...ie. I keep mine sitting in the lower console tray for general viewing and bring it up on the dash when I nee…
  • >5. Scroll down to MTP SETTINGS >6. Change from AUTO DETECT to MASS STORAGE Ok, so from googling, says "MTP" stands for "Media Transfer Protocol". Is a feature or something not going to work properly if I change "AUTO DETECT" to "MASS STORAGE…
  • Yep, a bug with this firmware (5.20), i also have a 1390T and now just see a black square for home instead of an icon
  • i also have a 1390T and a iPhone. I found the only time i see the addrees book is when i first pair the phone. After that, when i turn on the 1390 i dont see the address book anymore...
  • Add me to the list, no traffic in the Toronto area showing up on my 1390T ...hope it's just temporary......
  • This one is free for Canada, but i haven't tried it, so i don't know if it's straight forward to make it work on Nuvi's http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=61154
  • Strangely, the update didn't affect my favourites at all :shock: All the other settings were back to factory, Eco, Map data etc. but faves were fine. My favs were cleared as expected, but a lot of my other settings were also changed back to default…
  • ok ....thanks very much for all your replies :)
  • Thanks for the reply ...before this time, the unit has always known where i am, even if i turned it off, then turned it on in a different location. So what you're saying is that, now and then the unit won't know where i am ("thinking" im at a diffe…
  • This constant rebooting is what i got, back in May on my 1390T ....and i'm still waiting for a replacement unit..... http://forums.gpsreview.net/discussion/19161/x/p1/
  • Same here.. It was fully charged at the hotel I was at, and I was using the car traffic-adapter at the time it froze. Arrow: Did the Garmin tech give you any insight as to why it could have happened? No, there was no explanation. I'm going to wri…
  • IMHO it maybe worth it if you really love the unit. For me though, i'd prefer to put it towards a new unit after a couple of years.
  • thanks yes, the unit has to be returned to Garmin since i've had it for a few months ...oh and yes, the unit was fully charged when i first tried resetting it and got the problem. I talked to a Garmin tech and it will be going back there.....
  • i did the same as well (2010.10 to 2011.10) on my 1390T and also had to redo my favourites. The basic route was fine, but found the final destination had moved somewhat. Even my Home position had moved further down the street :)
  • >I want to disable the trafffic feature on my 1390T Do you want the icon to go away or to just stop the traffic rerouting feature ? If the latter, Tools ->Settings ->Navigation->Avoidences click "Traffic" otherwise as the previous posts…
  • i'm finally seeing junction views with 2011.10 :) ...never saw any in my area (Toronto) with the previous map (i updated from 2010.10)
  • I will resize my pics I never thought of that thanks. I have a BlackJack2 and the phone book never gave me an option to install it. How do I do that? This site seems to mention of having to send 1 contact at a time ? http://www.gpspassion.com/forums…
  • Awsome ! My 60 day for the free one time update since activation ends this Monday (Apr.26 according to the "MyGarmin") so patience may have paid off. My unit, 1390T has 2010.10 on it, i hope it has enough space for the update !
  • My issues have just recently started I believe I got my 1390T in March When I uploaded pics it started making my screen freezes even though I also added a SD card. And the second thing is my bluetooth doesn't stay connected and people can not hear …
  • I think normally when the phone is paired, the phone book should be downloaded into your 1690. i have a 1390T and that's what it does. I guess it depends on the phone ? i don't know ? i also would like to know if there's a way to edit ....i don't se…
  • Yes, if the traffic service is available, you'll see a car icon on the left side of the map. Even if the service is supposed to be in your area, sometimes it goes down for maintenance or whatever, and the icon will disappear, so don't immediately th…
