    It's perfectly legal ATM to run Win 10 unactivated and there are only a few 'eye candy' things missing. Everything updates normally, so really no big deal. At some point they may pull the pin on that...

    It's genuine. ;)

    As for comparison routes, it's a bit like Murphy's Law and you can do endless simulated routes without problem because like i said "it's rare" but it'll f*** up when you don't...

    Then the likelihood is high that there's a minor corruption either in nonvol or in the map you were using. There is a little-known ability of nuvi devices to use some functions of a map img even when...

    It's not a good idea to leave the device on the windscreen in hot weather anyway. Garmin and other manufacturers specifically warn against that, Garmin in particular states that temps above 55C can...

    If you mean you have a Sensis CN in the internal memory and a Here CN on the card then make sure you only check one of those in 'Map Info' or you can get possible errors like freezing and confused...

    Probably the map you were using when the device froze has a minor corruption. Check all the *.img files with gmaptool.

    Hi Tiny. Maybe one of your maps on the microSD having a minor corruption, is another possibility. That's a good reason to have 'unofficial' maps on the card, because if they do cause a problem...

    You can ditch the gmap3d.img. It's for "3D Buildings and Landmarks" and can't be used by XT, so although it won't cause problems it's just taking up space.

    Let's get the terminology clear first. A basemap is 'built-in' and it's loaded on a special 'region' on your plotter [rgn3], if you bought the plotter new in Oz it'll have a Pacific basemap which is...

    Bit light on info so i'd take a guess, by not working properly you mean it's stuck on Garmin logo splash screen and won't boot up? If so, this should be a relatively easy fix however i might need to...
