Question about GPS

6 Answers

I purchased a Garmin 260 about a year and a half ago. There is no problem with the unit and it works great. The question I have is we have a 30' fifth wheel and sometimes Jill as we cal her takes us the shortest route but not not good when you are pulling 12 thousand pounds behind. Someone told me I can download the RV version into mine. Is that possible? IF not do you have any suggestions.

Sorry, this is not a solution, I drove my RV in Oregon this past summer, and my Garmin 260W took me on a twisty bumpy pass road which even at 30 MPH or less, tossed my passengers from side to side and up into the air, and told me to turn on an overgrown gravel logging road! When I past that "trail" by, it needed to recalculate a new route.

I don't believe there is any RV specific maps for this model. If you need further assistance please let me know. Their are re-routing features, but that isn't what your looking for or referring to. Also please accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,
Lee

I don't know of being able to download any rv maps, but there should be an option to show interstate splits as well as road clearance and bridge clearance. I hope this helps.

Can you change a GPS navigation system from street name to postcode


I am not sure what you mean by " post code" but a gps uses maps that are stored on the unit itself. In order to make a change on how it shows locations, it would mean that the maps would have to be edited. Any change like you are suggesting would involve a lot of work with computer programming. Since it is not a standard method of locating, it would not be marketed.

For Bluetooth connection, touch the button to pair a Bluetooth device with wireless technology or any device you want to connect with.

I have a garmin nuvi and the cable that you put into your cigarette lighter will not work. I changed the fuse and it still will not keep the unit charged. I can charge it on my computer with a usb cable....


Do you see a lightning bolt symbol over the battery bar graph? This indicates that its charging. If it's under warranty, please contact Garmin on their website. www.garmin.com and call them. No need to worry about this if its under warranty. Send them your charger too.

Missing bluetooth software


The 300 does NOT have bluetooth. See this Garmin link:

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=339

The 360 has bluetooth. In order to have bluetooth, you must have the main board inside that has the bluetooth circuitry AND the firmware to support it. The 300 does NOT have the circuitry for bluetooth.
