Volvo Screen

 

I have a Volvo XC60 that has a dealer installed Garmin Nuvi 765. Does anyone know how to remove the "I AGREE" mandatory touch welcome screen and the second screen for acknowledging that it is not safe to operate while driving?

Thanks,

Pete

On my 765T it clears itself

On my 765T it clears itself in about 5-10 seconds if I dont touch the screen and goes to the "Where To?" screen ready to go.

That's not what he asked,

That's not what he asked, I'm sure. He wants to clear it, so it doesn't come up at all, correct?

At least Volvo lets you 'agree.' We had a Toyota and that system (don't know whose it was, but it was really terrible) would not let you do anything (except select a pre-saved favorite) while moving. I contacted Toyota, and they said tough.

I don't believe there is a way

I don't believe there is a way, at least not without hacking into the GPS itself which is not recemended. Basically, as everyone knows, it is an agreement that you will not program it while driving. Keeps Garmin's butt off the line if you get into an accident if you are manipulting the device while driving.

Hack

Yes, I want to hack into it. I was even able to do it to my last Lexus Nav but finding the service screen. If I mount this on my computer there must be some files I can delete or something.

Thanks,

Right

Clear it so it never shows its ugly head again.

gps forums

suggest you check the forums at gpspassion.com if it can be done you will find it there.

It's here

The best instructions I have seen are on this site at http://www.poi-factory.com/node/19409 but you don't really get rid of it. You can get rid of the text so only a blank screen comes up or you can change the text to whatever you want the screen to say but nobody has figured out how to keep the screen from coming up with the AGREE tab. As you'll see from the link, the actual screen contents are embedded in the voice file (.vpm) on the Nuvi.

Of course the screen disappears automatically after a few seconds anyway, text or no text or customized text.

5000 on 765 mount

My car has the 765 installed by the dealer. If I wanted to switch models would the 5000 fit on the mount? And is the traffic subscription assigned to the unit or the FM Traffic unit that is built into the car? I want to switch so I can use the 5000 as a monitor for a rear view camera.

Thanks,

As for the mount

I would call Garmin and ask if the two mounts are compatible. Traffic is in the receiver and not the GPS, so if its a 7X5, then if the mounts are compatible, then the traffic will switch over. The 5000 does require a special interface unit for the camera if I remember correctly and the 5000 also does not have a battery so it must be connected to external power at all times.

ɐ‾nsǝɹ Just one click away from the end of the Internet

In my Volvo XC70...

I have the 760, installed on the dash. Everything was going fine for the last yeas as usual, now, when I connect the GPS to the computer to update it with anything, I hear the computer chime that it sees it's connected THEN the 760 shuts off. The battery is fine, it works fine in the car...but this has me stumped...all my other Nuvi's do okay. I called Garmin to see what could be done, and they said I had to call Volco?????
