I Just Updated My Nuvi 1300WT GPS

Seeing my wife and I are going on vacation next month grin I decided to Map and Software update my older Nuvi 1300WT GPS.

I'm now running CN North America NT 2015.10 map... and v.6.30 software. I'm running my new map off of a 8GB SanDisk Micro SD.

While I was at it, I deleted all of the extra voices other than English Australian Karen cool and English American Jill. wink

I'm not really lost.... just temporarily misplaced!

Linux Mint and Basecamp

Has anyone here installed Basecamp and used it successfully on a Linus OS? ...or other software provided by Garmin and what has been your experience? Inquiring minds need to know. I'm thinking of pitching Windows 10 and switching to Linux.

Airport icons in Basecamp

I know that I have asked this question before but I do not remember/cannot find the answer.

I have had to reinstall Basecamp and I have the map littered with "Airport" icons. Please, how do I turn them off??

Thanks Doug.

Waze and Nuvi?

Seems remotely possible to use BT connection to feed Waze traffic info to Nuvi ... though I realize bluetooth is pairwise and I'd really prefer to keep my phone paired with my car for hand-free conversation. But maybe a second/passenger phone?

Updating Garmin Nuvi 500 Using 4 GB Micro SD Card

I updated my Garmin Nuvi 500 today. It said that the memory only had room for a portion of the US, so I selected states nearest me. When I check the device, it shows that I have an optional 4 GB microSD card installed, but none of it was used. I would like to use the 4 GB microSD card and install all of the lower 49 states. How do I do that so it uses the optional memory card?

Kenwood/Garmin Routing?

I recently replaced the original radio in my car with a Kenwood 992, in part because I wanted to have Garmin nav while removing the dashboard/windshield/etc mounting. My 2450 with lifetime maps found a new home in my wife's car.

So far, it has met my needs, but now we are planning a two-week, mostly sight-seeing, trip which will not be a daily Point A to Point B routing.

Text To Speech On Garmin Nuvi 3597

I am just wondering how many people here use the Text To Speech functionality on their Garmin Nuvi 3597 or other navigator or devices. I spend some time with my wife's cousin recently and he is a big fan of using text to speech on his Android phone. I really had not been all that impressed in the past with Text To Speech, but it appears as if it has improved significantly since I last used it.

Basecamp Tutorial

Ed Conde on the New England Riders forum has put together a great tutorial on using BaseCamp. The tutorial evolved from a class agenda from which he's taught a number of BaseCamp haters to use the program in a few hours. This tutorial is very useful for anyone new to BaseCamp or struggling with it, and will get you past the steep learning curve so many folks seem to experience.

Full Up To Date Toll Info / EZ Pass / Complete USA

Just upgraded from my Nuvi 660 to the Nuvi 2699. I am planning a long trip from Arizona back east next summer and would like to make sure I know where the toll roads are and if/when I need to use EZ Pass. I haven't bought an EZ Pass yet - can't figure out exactly what state I should buy from.
