    Please be more specific. What comes up? There is a hidden menu if you press and hold down on the odometer.

Different parts of the screen do different things depending on the mode you're in. When you touch "speed" the trip screen appears as you've already noted. The 'Driving" icon does nothing until you've asked the GPS to take you someplace.

After you enter a route the "speed" icon changes to "arrival" (which will still bring up the trip screen) and the 'driving' icon will change to "Turn In." Touching "Turn In" will bring up a list of turns along with a small portion of the map (showing that particular turn) anytime you've entered a route.

Note you can also press the green banner on top of the map when you have a route set. You'll see a list of just the turns and the distance to each. Touching each of those turn boxes will show you the split screen offered after you touched the "turn in" button.

Cheers

Do I display speed on m Garmin nuvi 260 instead of arrival time?


im not too hot on garmins but my tom tom will only show so many things before it runs out of space. go to your display settings and search around in there, remove one thing like compass direction and you may be able to fill the empty slot with new info.

Battery power was low on my nuvi 255.plugged into the garmin wall charger.now nothing works.wont power up at all.plugged into the car charger and still nothing..whats happened ?


Hello,

The 2xx series had a batch with bad batteries and they are replacing them even out of warranty , try your serial number on https://my.garmin.com/rma/recallLanding.faces. See if it is eligible for repair, if not the unit is probably pooched.

Hope this helps!

When you have the screen showing up the route to your destination, if you touch the box down in the left hand corner showing the estimated arrival time the screen should switch to show your current speed, max speed, compass etc.........

Garmin bluetooth won't disconnect call


Solution below works for NUVI660 as well; ignore everything after step 6 but DO reboot and delete previously existing connections.

good luck





All,

I was having the same problem with my Curve and Nuvi 680. What has fixed this for me is downgrading the Bluetooth firmware version on the Nuvi itself. I was running version 3.0 (you can check your version by going to Settings -> System -> About on the Nuvi) -- I had success after downgrading to version 2.4.

It's a bit of a convoluted process, but here is the procedure I followed:

1. Download the old Nuvi BT firmware from the Garmin Italy website:

http://www.garmin.it/files/FileBluetooth.zip

2. Connect your Nuvi to your PC.

3. Go into the X:GarminRemoteSW and look for a file called 006B055301.GCD (where X: is your Nuvi drive)

4. Back up that file to your
computer, and delete it from the Nuvi.

5. Extract the file in the zip downloaded in step 1 to the X:GarminRemoteSW directory

6. Disconnect your Nuvi from your computer, and let it
reboot

7. Click on "View Map," then touch the "Speed" in the lower left corner.

8. You should have the "Dashboard" view up. Touch and hold the "Moving Average" box for ~15 seconds until the diagnostic screen appears.

9. Press the "next" button until you arrive at the "Bluetooth Status" screen (5-6 screens in)

10. Click "Updt PR" and then click "Yes"

11. Reboot the Nuvi, delete the existing bluetooth pairing, and attempt to re-pair with your BlackBerry.

Seems to work perfectly now -- please let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!
