Hi Guys
Some info please
While out on a ride today with some mates
I noticed on the bottom right of the map
a box with Scouts followed by a changing number
Any Idea what this is and can it be turned off
Cheers
Del

A scout is a driver with the ability to report on the location of safety cameras, which helps to keep safety camera data up-to-date and accurate.The Scouts data field displays the number of scouts within a certain distance, and may include a star rating of the scout reports.

No idea how useful it is or whether you can delete it. If it's a normal data field you should be able to change it to something more useful.

Normally the direction you're heading is displayed here - this is standard but you can change to whatever you like (and Garmin has allowed), just press shortly on the field and make your decision, what to display here...

Maybe it's also a good advice to read your Zumo's manual...

and I did it without reading the manual. cos I'm a real man and don't need instruction manuals :lol: :lol: :lol:
