Garmin talk


Tried looking...can't find the info on the 465t

Hi everyone.....I was looking at purchasing another Garmin unit.......the one that interests me is the Nuvi 465T (truck model)
Now I am aware that it is for truck but it can also be used for cars. It gives you the option for trucks as an over the road OTR driver or a delivery truck. The delivery truck is what I need the info on.

Garmin Locking

I just bought a Garmin 265T and since my last one was stolen out of my car I though I should set the security lock on this one.
The problem is I am in Yuma for the winter and will return to Canada in the spring. If I set a "pin" here do I have to set the location too; and if I do can I reset it when I get back to Canada to my home there?

Lifetime traffic to unit or cable?

Would appreciate if someone could point me to the answer. I've been searching this site to see if someone asked this before but cannot seem to find an answer.

I have a 265T with a receiver cable. Lifetime traffic.

I'm noticing a lot of Garmin units are going on sale but with the MSN service with x months. Same mini-usb connector.

Yeti Voice

There is a new voice called "Yeti" at the Garmin Garage. I saw this mentioned in a post when I did a search, but there didn't seem to be a thread on it.

Rest Stops Closed

We left home in central IL on Tues and tonight we're about 50 Miles N of Jackson, MS. We found several rest stops along I-55 closed in Missouri and Mississippi. Not good.


2010.30 Extracting problem

Hello, I'm trying to update my nuvi 680 to the latest nüMaps Lifetime™ North America 2010.30. I've downloaded the file two times. Once using Firefox and the second time using the Garmin downloader. Both times downloaded successfully but when I execute the file, nothing happens. It just says 0% Extracting Garmin Map Update and sits at 0% for over 1 hour.

Military Vehicles for Garmin

Hi, I'm new to the group, does anybody know where I can find military vehicle icons. I've seen the tank on the Garmin site but I would like a desert colored Hummer.

any suggestions would be appriciated.

Number of times a warning repeats

On my 255wt, I uploaded the sample red light file and added the sound and bitmap files. When I approach a red light camera, the unit repeats the phrase four times. I checked the wav file itself and it contains only one phrase. Is there a way to set how many times the saying repeats. If I remember correctly, prior to the wav file it "beeped" four times.

Thanks Jim

Garmin 765t FM transmitter

Quite disappointed with the FM transmitter feature on my new 765t. Followed all the instructions to get the Garmin sound through my car speakers. Yes, it does work, but the amount of static is horrible. NOT a useful feature. Have tried different FM settings with the same poor results. Anyone having good success with this feature?
