MSN Screen Page on Garmin 680


I watched a video about the Garmin 680 on When they showed the MSN screen page, the traffic, weather, gas and movie icons each had the number "100%" displayed on their respective icon. I'm guessing it represents the percentage of downloaded data for each category. My 680 doesn't display that. Is that a feature of the 2008 mapping software? I'm still running V8.

MSN screen Page

I just upgraded my NUVI 680 mapping software to NT 2008 and I still don't see any percentages on the MSN Icons. It makes me wonder if the NUVI that was being demonstrated was using a software update that hasn't been released yet. Something we could look forward to???

My C580 doesn't show any

My C580 doesn't show any percentages I would imagine they would be similar...

MSN Screen with Percentages

Here's the CNET video I was referring to in my first post.

Not on C580

No percentages showing on my C580, but it would be nice. What would be even nicer would be a stronger FM signal.


Get Garmin or Get Lost

Garmin support told me Tuesday that an update for MSN is

It is in the works now. I hope she was right and that it comes out soon.
Garmin support was really good Tuesday, by the way...

Weak in picking up FM signal

Agree that it's weak in picking up the FM MSN signal. If the power cord is below the car windows I rarely pick up the signal and I live well within the coverage area. If I mount the GPS on the windshield or drape the power cord over the rear view mirror (get the cord above the window line) it picks up a strong signal. I hope they have a way to fix that.


If you watch the video carefully, when the reviewer is punching up the commands, the Icons do not show the percentages but when they show a graphic of the display, that has the percentages. It could be the graphics were early mock-up.
