Awesome! How are the tablet input capabilities e.g. handwriting recognition on this baby?

Re: Turn by turn instructions

Just to update on this issue. Brought my unit back to the distributor, ABT & indeed the set's routing was faulty. They were kind enough to do a 1 for 1 replacement as my previous unit was just a couple of weeks old & still in very good condition. Otherwise, I would have had to wait 1 month if they w...

Re: Turn by turn instructions

Hi SilverBeauty, Followed your steps for hard reset & also loaded new software plus the free maps. Still not ok. After updating software with Webupdater, my software version is now 2.70 but GPS SW version is still at 2.60. What gives? If I can't resolve this by this weekend, I'm bringing it to the a...

Re: Turn by turn instructions

Hi tympg,

The instructions state "SW to XXX Ave."

Map orientation is "track up" and routing set for car/motorcycle, follow road.

Could map data be corrupted? Thanks.

Re: Turn by turn instructions

From your description, it looks like, presently, you're not even in routing mode. The "Turn Left / Turn Right" type of instructions only come on if you are routing to something . Do you even have a specific destination when "routing"? I'm pretty sure its on routing mode as the guidance text does up...

Re: Turn by turn instructions

Read the user manual that comes with the set. It's called "Guidance Text" in page 26 under "Map Page Options". To enjoy the technology, one need to understand the technology, to understand the technology, one need to read the instructions that comes with the technology, else one cannot maximise the...

Still no joy. Did a hard reset of the unit also no use. Maybe will try to reload the maps.

Turn by turn instructions

Hi Gurus, Been playing around with my eTrex Vista HCx for a couple of weeks now. I don't know what I changed but my turn by turn instructions for auto-routing don't show left & right turns anymore but instead show cardinal directions e.g. SW, NE, N etc. Also, the 2 beeps to signify the upcoming turn...
