Updated Garmin DriveSmart 65 With Amazon Alexa No Magenta Line While Routing

 

I updated my Garmin GPSs last night and this afternoon while using my Garmin DriveSmart™ 65 with Amazon Alexa I no longer see the magenta line while routing. Can someone refresh my memory on how to restore it, please?

No, usually when I press Go!, it will calculate the route and then display the map with a magenta line on the road I am navigating on.

The magenta line is no longer there. I tried reloading the map, but it made no difference.

I am looking into some sort of Factory Reset, possibly.

Mystery Solved

I unchecked some of the additional maps on my Garmin DriveSmart 65 With Amazon Alexa and the magenta line returned.

I have no idea why it didn't do it prior to the map update, but all is well now.

Yep

Having multiple maps covering the same area often throws up weird results. Glad you resolved it
