Re: Loading MSM into NUVI Part 7

I'm a tech dummy and have a question. I bought a Garmin 2460LMT and a microSD card where I plan to store msm. I inserted the microSD card into the Garmin, but I don't see this drive when I plug the garmin into my computer. How do I load msm into the microSD card if I can't see it? Is this something ...

Re: Newbie Guide to Choosing Which GPS to Buy

Bartmp8, thanks for your detail reply. :) I'm now considering the 2360. Will this model give me near instantaneous satellite lock like 2465? I don't think the 2465 is offered in the U.S. Another question: When traveling to Singapore and switching on the garmin for the first time, do I need to change...

1450 question

Bartmp8, thanks for the detail answer. O:) Can an admin answer my other question about the 1450? How fast is the satellite lock for this model?

Re: Newbie Guide to Choosing Which GPS to Buy

Hello, I'm from the United States and there is a Garmin 1450 on sale for a good price. What are your thoughts on this model? I have an outdated model and it took forever to find the satellite in Singapore when I loaded msm. Will the 14xx series be an improvement in finding satellites quicker? Final ...

Re: Loading MSM into NUVI Part 6

I own a non-localized Garmin 265WT and loaded the latest MSM. I tried it out recently in Singapore and it took a very long time for the GPS to find the satellite. I was wondering if this a common problem with the MSM and if so, would it be faster if I switch to the Garmin NT maps? Thanks.
