XT Wishlist

Post by larryg »

While I've been generally very happy with the XT, there are a few small things that bother me.
Is it just me, or do others have similar complaints that we should try to get Garmin to address ?...

1. Having moved up from a Zumo 665, I miss a small, current time clock in the upper right of the screen, especially when traveling into a different time zone. Not a big thing - but I miss it.

2. Also miss the having the zoom level displayed on the map. It does show on a loaded route, but not when just viewing the map. Annoying.

3. The info bars, at top and bottom of the screen, are needlessly big - a waste of screen space. I'd really like to see them made a bit smaller.

I will put a ticket in with with Garmin....

It doesn't show for me when I am on a route, and the compass arrow has disappeared too :?

Those are my small issues too. I did open a ticket with Garmin about the missing compass needle and map scale (zoom level) that disappeared from the latest firmware update. They requested screen shots which I sent.

Can you add a Safety Lanyard, or at least an inbuilt loop that you can thread one through to the wish list. My cycling Garmins have them, why don't their motorcycling ones have them as well?

They are certainly changing the models from how they used to be.

Time of day and 8 point compass direction are both available as configurable buttons down the right hand side of the screen. The button at the bottom right is always there, and that too can be configured for different vehicles and for when there is / is not a route active.

Not necessarily exactly how you want it (and it takes up screen space, which I don't mind) but they are available.

I wish the "up ahead" and "trip data" well actually all the info on the right pane was smaller just like on the 590!

it reduces the navigation map considerably!

I like to have the pane visible at times but its way too big

Also I'd like the MP3 player to remember where it stopped after switching music source
