Re: New Garmin Zumo XT

Been looking at some reviews of the XT, sounds like they've made changes to the way it deals with following a pre planned route and what it does after a detour, I was particularly interested (assuming I understood, the video's in Dutch with English subs) in the way it gets you back to the route, and...

Re: New Garmin Zumo XT

No mention of the USB being USB 3 which is really too bad given how long it takes to load maps. Updating its supplied mapping is via its built in Wi-Fi. Are you saying that it can't be done via USB? If so then another reason I would avoid. I see 'in the box' there's a data cable so sounds like ther...

Re: Zumo XT section

where it mentions rugged build, it seems to show a speaker on the back. Certainly looks like a speaker. I was concerned at the phrase 'weather resistant' rather than waterproof, but it's IPX7 rated which is same spec as previous (at least my 396) I also see it has ANT+, I'm wondering if they'll sti...

Re: Oldest supported device

Not really an answer to the question, which would be: I don't know...but I've got a Nuvi 360, not sure when it was released, or when I bought it, but first available on Amazon October 2001. It still gets map updates now and then through Garmin Express. I used to use it on the bike, and still use it ...

Re: CN EU 2020.30 NTU

Having problems downloading, I picked the 'install all updates' from Express rather than go to options to also install to PC, so both my Zumos have updated but re-running the update to install to the PC means downloading the update again which I've tried a couple of times and consistently stalls at ...

Re: Germany routes

GPX format circular route we did last year. 170+ miles of fabulous roads!
Obviously the start finish needs adjusting, we were staying a bit West of Cochem, in Manderscheid.

Re: is it just me....?

Years ago I used to use a Nuvi 360 on the bike, and if you just want to let it choose your route they're OK - as long as it doesn't rain. So I spent several weeks on Mapsource planning a trip across France only to find the Nuvi doesn't work with planned routes. I managed to sort of follow the route ...

Re: Zumo 396 Bluetooth Earbud Alternatives

I assume something like the Sena 20s Evo is not your cup of tea? You can connect any earbuds to the module via direct 3.5mm plug (bypassing the helmet mounted speakers) and it connects to everything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Probably the best solution, or a Cardo (my Packtalk has a 3.5mm ...

Re: Zumo 396 Audio

You can set volumes for GPS and phone independently. Select volume then the spanner, you should see a volume slider for each output. Is this done on the Cardo app? Made it home to check the Zumo 396... so apologies, a correction.... From the home screen, it's the volume button you need, third from ...
