I have had my 1450 for a number of years it's done me well gave it to my son so I got another one from a auction site $21 free shipping bother are updated but I noticed when I plug the second one in to my PC it connects in a couple of seconds and the one I have had for awhile takes a minute or two anyone have thought why not a huge deal just wondering Mike
... because of the size of the trip log. If you clear that you should find it connects more quickly.
That's interesting - I had no idea that slowed things down. I have a DriveSmart 70LMT and sometimes it takes quite a while to connect... wonder if that's the issue. How often it clears the log and/or how many days/miles are retained has always been a mystery for me.
I, too, have a 1450 that has served me well. And it also takes a minute or two to connect to my laptop. How do I clear the trip log on my 1450?
Tools, MyData, Clear trip log
It's all in the manual
you learn something new every day LOL
Both my units are not with me now. Is it possible to
clear a portion only? Or is it all or nothing?
All or none. If you wish to save some, then you will have to wait for it to boot then download the tracks to Basecamp. Deletenthem on the unit, then reconnect to Basecamp, and upload the tracks you wan to keep.
I too never knew that the logs could slow down the GPS's boot up time. Would that also affect other responses?
I knew they are there and thought it was kinda cool to see where you'd been.
It's not what I would call the boot up time, it's the time it takes to connect to a PC that is affected by the size of the trip log.
pair of 1450 nuvis. One of them used to be a 1440(?, European mkt) that was a re-furb from Garmin. It is insanely slow connecting to the computer and just maddening when trying to sync with BaseCamp. The other 1450 is slow, but bearable.
I think my best recent purchase of a nuvi was the 2557 which I got new for well under $100. Great device.
As above, try clearing the trip log.
