Do Proximity Alerts work in SIMULATE mode on a Nuvi 205?

 

Hi,

Should I get proximity alerts on a Nuvi 205 if I'm Simulating a drive?

Tech support agent Rich at Garmin told me yesterday that I cannot get proximity alerts in simulation mode because there is no GPS data flow, but on at least ONE point I do get the alerts while in simulation mode so I'm confused?

also, I've read at least one post here that says you will get prox alerts in simulate mode?

thx

You Should

I know on my 660, I get proximity alerts in simulation mode. That's how I test to make sure they are working.

I can't speak specifically for the 205, but I would think that it would work the same as the 660.

if it's like my 765

if it's like my 765 you should.

Your manual and mine say basically the same thing about GPS simulation

yes

The 2x5 series will give proximity alerts for custom pois in the simulation mode.

Proximity Alerts

They work on all of my units (350, 765T, 1390T). Should work on yours, as well.

It Works on my 255WT!

205W

I'll have to try simulation mode on my 205W. Forgot I had that option. I usually drove that route and fixed the errors at a later time. Thanks the the reminder. razz
