What is myTrends and how does it work?

The myTrends feature is available on some Garmin devices: nuvi 55, 56, 65, 66, 2200, 2300, 2400, 2407, 2408, 2507, 2508, 2707, 2708, 3400, 3500, 3507, and 3508, and 3700 series, the LIVE 1695 and LIVE 2300 series, zumo 390 and zumo 590 and the dezl 560.

myTrends keeps track of your movements to those destinations to which you are traveling on a regular basis. Once the device has accumulated enough data, it may be able to predict where you are going - providing ETA and traffic information.

The device will display an information bar at the top of the map screen. If there are multiple ways you might travel, the device will offer alternative routes if any are available. These can be seen by touching the information bar.

In order to get myTrends to operate:
* Save frequent destinations (like work, home, mother, etc.) in Favorites/Saved Places.
* Establish a regular pattern of driving habits to those locations
* Follow these regular patterns for at least three days.

When myTrends begins to make suggestions, press Go! to activate a route to the suggested myTrends destination and the device will provide turn by turn directions.
