Sorry committed this to memory... Should have written it down...
After the V7.8 firmware update on my 2689LMT Nuvi, after all the reboots I see a message not seen before when I view map:
Library: No Traffic 24 (Word I forgot after 24)....
OK what's that last word, and what does it mean, Alphy?
I don't have an answer but see that v7.80 did have a traffic update:
Updates & Downloads
nuvi 26x9 C4 software version 7.80
as of September 30, 2015
Changes made from version 7.70 to 7.80:
Added support for processing digital broadcast traffic events outside of TMC road coverage.
Improved software stability.
So that others may offer help more quickly, let us know what power cord you're using: a GTM xx, TA xx or something else.
The 2689LMT still has the traffic receiver in the DC power plug in the car..... I did the update off of a USB cable in House.
Traffic Update!! Yes that make sense..
As to Which Traffic the 2689LMT has, I don't know, it came with it, but I do remember that the Traffic Receiver is in the DC Power Plug, just like the 660 had.
Here in the mountains of Western NC (40 Miles West of Ashville) I doubt that I'm in the range of any traffic FM stations... Analog or Digital.
Now this make sense.... I'll keep an eye on it....Will be using it later today....
Thanks for that info.. I think you explained it!
Used 2689LMT yesterday... No odd prompts... No traffic prompts, either, and I believe that's due to my location.
Thinking about what I saw, I'll bet that it had something to do with unit booting up without traffic receiver connected. (Receiver In Power Cord in the car, I was using USB cable in house at computer.)
