GPS Devices Are Helpful to a Point


The last time you used your GPS device, did it lead you down the longest path? Did you enjoy traveling the scenic route to Massachusettes through downtown Bronx, New York during rush hour? Did you think the GPS device was going to always give you perfect directions?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, here are just a few common sense tips to using GPS devices:

1-Remember that the GPS device is not your Aunt Lulu who has lived in the area for 75 years and knows all the greatest and safeste shortcuts. It cannot think like a human can think. It is a programmed computer device.

2-Got pot holes? Assuming that your GPS device will take you to your end destination using the quickest and least "pot holiest" roadways might be a mistake. The darned thing has no ability to see what the roadways look like. So, look out for potholes instead of throwing a temper tantrum at the GPS device if your car gets swallowed up in a black energy vortex in a huge, unexpected pot hole.

3-Because your GPS device is a non-thinking creation, assume it will take you on the route programmed in to it. Think about this. A GPS device's programming may be pre-disposed to direct you to pass by an advertiser's branch location.

For example, perhaps the route you travel according to the address you type in passes by all the K-Marts or Targets or WalMarts. For this reason, consider also bringing along an atlas so you can make an informed decision about your travel route.

Compare the GPS suggested route with a route printed on a map atlas. Which is the shorter of the two routes? Which is the safest of the two routes? Do you know the area through which you will be traveling? Do you think you can hold responsible a non-thinking GPS device for your safety?

If you'd like to know about safe places to travel, consider asking the local chamber of commerces found in the various cities on the route before you actually travel to your end destination. Doing this can be a smart move instead of basing your travel routes solely on the directions of the non-thinking GPS device.

The first time my friend and I used a GPS device, we had no idea what we were doing and wound up at our destination 4 hours later than many people in our group. When my friend and I shared the story with an experienced GPS user he said, "Yeah, that happened to me. After that first time, I learned to also bring an atlas. Thinking your trip through and referring to a printed map can save wear and tear on your nerves, your gas budget and on your stress levels."

I agree! Think about the SUGGESTION your GPS device is offering to you. If you imagine that it's sending you on a wild goose chase, get off the goose and put your nose into the atlas.

Happy traveling!

How do you select most use of freeways to avoid back roads? My Magellan was easy to use in that regard.


Hello,

Go to the Tools > Settings > Navigation > and press the button under Avoidances.
Use the arrow down and place a check mark in the box beside Unpaved Roads and then press OK.
Also, go to the Tools > Settings > Navigation > and setting the Route Preference to Faster Time will usually route using freeways. This is not always the case, as some secondary roads are paved and the unit will route to them if it calculates that this will be a faster route.
It is usually a good idea to familiarize yourself with an unknown route. This can be done after creating the route and touching the map screen. Zoom out to view sections of the route. Via points can then be added to modify the route as necessary.

Need to up date maps on my gps


Hi jhotsko,

The easiest map update route for these units is through Best Buy and their "Geek Squad" Technicians(?). I know this model has not really been out that long, and the maps are a little dated. I know, because I two of them, but they seem to handle most of the routing I need.

Anyway, if you technically-minded, try this site, although I can't vouch their info:
http://software.informer.com/getfree-insignia-ns-nav01-gps-update-maps-download/

Let me know how it turns out. Thanks.

Regards, Bill

How do I set the GPS so it shows me the best route on main roads and not all the side, gravel and dirt roads


Click Tools.....Settings.....Navigation...

I like Faster Time.... you can change it to Shorter Distance or Off Road
depending on your gps

On Avoidances... I have it Enabled

click Avoidances.... I avoid U-Turns.....Traffic...Carpool Lanes...Unpaved Roads

click OK after your choices..

Good idea when you plan a route is to check it by arrowing down your map to make sure its the route you want to travel, if not go back to main page and click detour X to change route then you can save it if you like

I bought Garmin nuvi 765T after having Viamichelin navigator in my car fo some years. . In the old GPS I could navigate to "city center" which was quite useful, when you travel and want to visit a place...


Check in the settings/setup options to enable all the POIs (Point of Interests) and then check if you can find the "city centers" If not then maybe the maps of this GPS device does not have this POI.

While traveling to Nova Scotia last week, my Garmin Street Pilot c530 was telling that i was on an unpaved road, but i was on route 2 in New brunswick Canada


Don't believe everything you see on a GPS. Garmin does not update their maps as they should; I found this even after I purchased their map update. I drove 48 states in a big rig, over many new roads not found or shown on the Garmin maps. My streetpilot usually went into a hiccup mode, recalculating -- recalculating -- recalculating. All the while, it tried to get me to detour on whatever spurious local roads happened to show up along the way.

Get an update for the Maps. Should be able to call the dealer and purchase a new DVD of updated maps. P.S. This may be spendy.
