  • burstlp, The 765T comes with an FM traffic receiver (built in to the DC charger) and it is free for the lifetime of that 765T the other GPS come with MSN traffic receiver wich is a monthly subscription but they give you the first 9 months free aft…
  • There is also another program @ http://Navteq.com which you can download the route onto your device, and add up to five waypoints I believe. Don't know if it helps or not but might be worth a try.
  • I didn't think so :( But thank you anyways Tim.
  • Michael, Thank you for your reply but I have had the 265Wt for awhile now and although it pairs and works with my phone no matter how long I drive with it paired it just dosen't show the phone book. The same also happens with my TTGo 720 but with t…
  • itzme, I also have the 265wt and as far as I know there nare no LED lights only the car icon changes when traffic changes only light I know of on the charger/traffic antenna is the one at the end of the charger showing it's plugged in.
  • Hi Bigwigxxx, Thank you but it's all fixed TT straightened him out the problem was exactly as you explained the problem was he never backed-up his original (he has know :lol: )but TT support sent the files to him and all is working great now, I'll …
  • Hi Tim, Yeah that's the problem he didn't back-up his original map and therefore he has nothing to copy from and support said that when he downloaded the new map he erased the old map, but TT knows there is a problem so hopefully they come up with a…
  • Thanks dhn, I was looking for my son because he just updated his Go740 with the newest map and for some reason he lost his traffic subscription it just dosen't seem to recognise the new map he contacted support and they acknowledged there is a prob…
  • Hi everyone, Is there a site where older maps can be dowloaded from.
  • Only a week... how do you get such great service?...you must have an inside connection :lol:
  • My son say's he updated his 740 and now when he uses bluetooth he hears other conversations from other people on the GPS.
  • I have a 265WT and have the same problems and my phone also is suppose to be supported. I don't think Garmin cares whether bluetooth works or not, (if it works good... if not oh! well) there are quite a few people on this forum who also have proble…
  • Is it possible they have show my caller ID turned to off on their phone?
  • Docslate, Where you have only owned the 265W for 48 hrs. I would return it for another brand or if you happen to like Garmin :roll: then atleast a different model as my opinion is that the 265 is a lemon and Garmin is just not willing to face up to…
  • Mark Did you do a back up of your previous ver. as dhn always suggest,if so maybe you could roll back to that set up and see if you get the audio back other than that you may have to do what SerZak suggest.
  • Don't know of a reset button on bottom but on my 265wt if you hold the on switch all the way on for about 8 sec. it will do a kinda soft reset if you hold the bottom right hand corner of the screen it will give you the "erase all user data" promt if…
  • Did you try doing a reset by holding the on switch for about 8 seconds or a hard reset by holding the bottom right of the screen while turning the unit on you will loose all custom settings with a hard reset but might work.
  • That explains the 30 minute wait when you call customer service :)
  • Maybe on the other side of the pond darrengsaw :wink: but they are right here in my neighborhood and the few number of times i had to call them they were alway's very helpful and corrected my problem,(which was usually my fault) and rarely waited …
  • Yeh it's a shame they don't fix this because I use to like Garmin Products my first GPS was a Street pilot C330, then a Nuvi 200,now this 265Wt not to mention a couple of their Marine products that I purchased for my 27' Bayliner but the way they ju…
  • I personally think the 265WT is a piece of junk. I bought one and exchanged it for another 265WT because the bluetooth just didn't work correctly with either one, even though my phone is on their compatibility list. The funny thing is I also own a …
  • If bluetooth is no big deal I would save the bucks and get a different unit I own a 265wt and personally think it's Garmin's Lemon if you look on this forum you'll see there are allot of problems with it and the bluetooth dosen't seem to work as adv…
  • I don't know if it is possible with the Garmin but I had the same problem with my TomTom it would not load my phone book but you can make your own phone book with a text editor such as word pad and it works fine. Tim,and dhn were a great help in do…
  • Another thing you can do with it .... added weight for your anchor :lol:
  • Try setting a destination, on my 265Wt that is the only time traffic works.
  • srican, I paired my son's Blackberry (verizon is the carrier) to my 265WT and everything worked fine it automatically installed his phone book and he even made a call from it, The funny part is after we did this I paired my i880 and the phone worked…
  • I hear ya guys paid $389.00 Sept.08 and just this weekend paid $95.89 for the RDS-TMC taffic adapter then saw on TomTom site it's $59.99 so for under $200.00 and the download upgrades you can get a Go730 with traffic, but it is a real nice unit. …
  • Probably the reason they are telling you to go with a Garmin is because misery loves company :lol:
  • Go TomTom and you'll never look around again :lol:
  • I agree the 265WT in my opinion is a horrible unit as far as the audio goes, I also returned my first one only to have the same problem with the second one which is when I pair it with my phone after about a minute and a half all audio on the 265WT …
  • If you go to the nuvi forum there is talk about it being bricked by a manuf. download.
  • And while your there check out 265WT Bluetooth Phone Book and Random disconnects by srican and see how support helped him. Gatorguy I agree with what you say that some would disagree with both of us but maybe someone could set up a survey on GPS re…
  • srican I think Garmin has a problem with the 265Wt but don't want to admit it mine will pair up and work for about a minute and a half then I loose all audio on the GPS and phone, support claims it's the phone but the phone is listed on their compat…
  • Go with the TT730 I own a Garmin 265WT and a TT720 which after upgrades is a TT730 and TT beats Garmin hands down, and TT's Tech Support is way better than Garmin's, friendlier, more knowledgeable, and just seems to care more about their customer's.
  • I own a 265WT and wouldn't recommend it at all, be very careful of the bluetooth as in my case it dosen't work even with a listed compatible phone on their web site and there are numerous other problems with the 265W just check out the nuvi forum on…
  • I agree the 265WT is horrible don't waste your money.
  • ttfranko, Not sure if this will work for you but in the blue tooth profile on your phone is there a setting to (connect automatically) on my Motorola i880 it is under device history click on TT720 and set connection to automatic and under set up I l…
  • ttfranko, I feel your frustration but I would think twice before getting a Garmin. I just purchased a Garmin 265 WT it will pair with my phone and if I make a call within the first minute and a half it will work after that nothing, the GPS locks up …
  • Marc I'm also running 5.0 but how do you tell what the newest voice firmware should be and how do you get it or is it part of the software update when you download at new registration.
  • gogo24 Hope it works for you but I updated to v5.0 and still have the problem :evil:
  • I also agree it's a shame companies try to out do one another with all kinds of gizmos that don't really work just to lead you into buying their product just because somebody else claims to have it on their's . If companies realized all it does is l…
  • seanfl, You bring up an interesting point I also updated the map to the latest as soon as I got it due to the registering procedure then paired it to my phone so i don't know if it worked correctly with older ver. My unit does exactly the same as yo…
  • Hi seanfl, Yes I am having the same problem when paired with my phone, the GPS works for about a minute and a half then all audio is gone on both the GPS and phone even though the phone is listed as being compatible with the GPS, if this is the same…
  • Satnav? I agree, IMHO I don't think they (support) knows what their doing, I have a problem with my 265WT loosing all audio when paired with my phone, they claim it is my phone but when I explain that it is on their compatibility list the tech told …
  • Wonder if they discovered a problem :roll: Thanks for the info gatorguy will keep checking in.
  • Thanks for the reply dhn, nice to know i'm not the only one :) i was just curious if it was the problem with the volume as maybe the 720 was thinking it only had half the power left to operate and i thought i remember a discussion awhile back about …
  • Another problem I noticed is since the update cannot get battery indicator to go beyond half charge even after charging with the dock for 24 Hrs. and then car charger for 24 Hrs. both will not charge past 1/2 way, but when either charger is connecte…
  • That's correct after trying to download contacts from my phone to the 720 and not working my phone book icon was greyed out and after a couple of reset's the phone book icon was back with the contacts i manually installed using notepad but none from…
  • Hi dhn, Yes this is with the new 8.350 it also wiped out the contacts i had manually installed thanks to you and Tim's kind guidance but after two or three reset's it came back. Another weird happening is right after the download and first reset whe…
  • On my Motorola i880 the phone book transfer does nothing, my 720 ask's if i want do download my phone book from my phone enter yes and after a 1 1/2 hour wait when i try to see if anything happens i get my Go is downloading my phone book do i want t…
