  • [sussamb] Thanks - good idea. In your experience does it always give you the menu option of where the new entry should come in your route?
  • West Sussex - Thanks for the SP3 update estimate! Bob
  • t9 - It's the updating process that worries me. I have fears of it getting half way through and something horrible going wrong and then not being able to do anything. But doing a complete backup prior to doing this will give me some piece of mind. …
  • I had something similar after hooking up my USB cable in my attempt to register my 2455LMT. When I powered it up in the car I got the icon that you get when connected to the PC - and it just sat there. Not sure what I did - just powered up & do…
  • Let's just say I'm not an "early adopter." My car was released in 1996. :) But I'm getting the message!
  • West Sussex - I hear you on SP3. It's just that when I get something running well I hate to fiddle with it. But it may be time! Bob
  • t9 - Is your WMP V11? I think that now that I have V11 if I were to get up to SP3 I'd be OK. Bob
  • Well, I'm getting there. I took WAASup's suggestion of using IE to update WMP to V11. (I thought it got stuck but it made it through.) Then I went back to Chrome and went back to www.garmin.com/dashboard. I went to install the plugin and it told …
  • Here is my response from Garmin - sounds like a canned one to me. I doubt that going to SP3 would fix my problems. I can try it on my wife's machine which has SP3 installed. Anybody else out there using Chrome who had to update WMP to V11 ? -----…
  • WAASup - Yesterday I tried using IE for this but it had problems finding the device and after all the other frustrations I was not up for loading USB drivers - which was the suggestion for if this happened. BUT I think I may have to explore this a…
  • I had the same question about distances to favorites being off. And while driving I noticed that they were ALL changing in real time and knew that all these routes were not being recalculated. I did a little 'search' on this site and came to this t…
  • Out of curiosity, why do you want to route to an exit as opposed to a street address? I tried searching for the "intersection" of 90 and 13, but that didn't work. The exit number will not appear on the map, even if you zoom all the way in; howev…
  • Are you driving while trying to acquire satellites? My 755T is slow to grab them if I start driving immediately but does a good job if I'm stationary. A friend with a 2x5 has noticed the same thing.
  • Lost-In-Woods - Thanks for looking into my problem. I think that "right on road" is what it was trying to get me to do. It probably backed up to the golf course. I wouldn't be surprised if that used to be a back way into the course or to a mainten…
  • Lost - What is your map date? Mine is 2011.10 - I think. I wonder if the blank one is the one that took me up somebody's driveway? For extra credit I'd love to see how it tells you to go from Dover, MA - to the 'blank' one. Bob
  • It was the same POI - Myopia Hunt Club, Hamilton, MA. There is a minor chance that it has something to do with Hamilton vs. South Hamilton. If a search finds the POI that you are interested in but does not provide an address is there a way of tell…
  • That was my original assumption. But then I went to POI / Recreation / Golf Courses and it seemed to work OK. Ya know, I just update my maps on Sunday and I can't remember if perhaps I had searched for Myopia Hunt Club prior to that. Maybe that was…
  • I bit the bullet and decided to do the update today. It went pretty well - took about 80 minutes on my wireless network. It took me a little while to get to the correct top level menu for downloading my "recently purchased" maps. First it had to do…
  • GatorGuy - Thanks for the reply. Sounds like I should go ahead and try to download today rather than risk getting shutout completely. I agree that there probably won't be many changes in the next map. Plus Tim doesn't think that it'll be out until…
  • Well, I sent email to Garmin asking them why the Garmin that I received in the mail on May 24th had a registration date of May 7th. My theory was that Am*zon had resold me a returned unit. Garmin had said (via their website) that the original satell…
  • Thanks for the input. The unit appears to work well and I don't relish starting over with a new unit BUT I really don't like the idea that Amazon sent me a unit that someone else had returned. (Like WHY was it returned? Is there some intermittent p…
  • I ordered my Garmin 755T on May 18, 2010 from Amazon. It arrived about a week later (about May 24th). Yesterday (June 9, 2010) I registered it online with Garmin. When I was looking at the mygarmin.com product registration it told me that I registe…
  • My new Garmin 755T gave me the "calculating 99%" problem while down in Provincetown, MA a couple of days ago. I only let it sit there for a couple of minutes before powering off & trying again. Got same problem. It showed my current position on …
  • JG - I've only had the unit a couple of days. I like your answer about it being "heuristic." I haven't read the entire 76 page PDF but I saw nothing in the index about how to do a hard reset. I think there are a bunch of little secrets about how …
  • Jeff - Thanks for your response. I've got the Free traffic service. The part that confused me is since I was going at or above the speed limit for pretty much the entire trip I was surprised that it would have to add time to my estimated arrival. I…
  • I just got a Garmin 755T - our first GPS. Other than watching it rather than the road I really like it. I did notice that my arrival time kept getting pushed out a little on my 100 mile trip back from Maine to Boston last night. There was no traffi…
  • Remember, no multi-destination routing on the 1390. So if that is important to you ........
  • Tom, gatorGuy, MVL, Tim - Thanks for the responses! Tim, the link was helpful. Bob
  • Gang - I registered a few days ago and saw that I had to post within a week or I would be forever banished from this forum. I have nothing of substance to say but since 'noob' had no replies to his/her recent post I thought I'd respond and get my o…
