SIMULATED TRIPS

 

Is there a way, when running a "simulated" trip, that you can speed up the running time... either that or is there a way to get the gps to give you a text version of the trip, sort of like printing one out from mapquest with turn by turn and mileage to destination?

You cannot speed up the route simulation (though you could on older units like the GPS V) but you can get a Turn List page which will list all the turns in the route:

While simulating the route, press the green navigation bar at the top of the screen. Doing so will take you to the Turn List page where you can see all the turns in the route. Use the up/down arrows to additional turns that are not listed on the first page.

I believe you can increase the speed

That is if you contact Garmin Tech Support and order a flux capacitor. This will increase the speed to approximately 88 miles per hour.

I believe you have to send your flux capacitor to Fluxuated for recharging if you attempt to speed up the simulated route speed too much. Be careful of this though. His work does get overloaded and he has been known to ship left hand flux capacitors in exchange for the right hand models sent for recharging. razz razz

My understanding is that if you add the flux capacitor to your Nuvi you will also receive satellite internet. But I could not confirm this on the Garmin site.

Can anyone provide a link to the flux capacitor/satellite internet specs. Thanks.

To help clear up any confusion

This may be a good place to start. Garmin's part number is 010-DMC-12-00. As many of you know trying to find a product on Garmin's web site is a difficult undertaking to say the least, so if you try a search with the part number listed above, you just may get lucky Mr. McFly. Keep in mind this part was manufactured in Dunmurry, Northern Ireland, so be sure to ask for the imported part, not the one made in the United States. Shipping may be rather costly.

Check out its operational limits at the site below.

$54.79 is the best price I have found so far.

PS Be sure the capacitor you order is rated exactly 1.21 jiggawatts for proper internet speed and connectivity.

It's a Feature...

One of these days they'll probably call it a feature and make it available only on high end models...

Thanks to all. I purchased

Thanks to all. I purchased the Flux Capacitor it works great on my GPS! Found it also works on;

TV's (speeds up sports games)
Traffic lights (makes em change quicker)
Grocery store (speeds up the cash register)
In the bedroom - uh, never mind........

Oh, has the wife requested that you return the flux capacitor because you were arriving too soon?

I mean to the couch for speedier sports?smile
