Re: Worth the upgrade to Nuvi2567 ???

.............. One word of caution though, I would not program what is HOME as it only makes things easier for a burglar who happened to have possession of your GPS. quote] Home button is meant for frequent and easy use thus its on one of the initial screens. I find pressing the Home button is the ...

Re: Worth the upgrade to Nuvi2567 ???

It is a different one but basically the same concept and structure. I plug the external antenna directly into the 2575R and do not use the car adapter which contains the amplifier and transmitter (unless I want several Nuvis to benefit from the re-rad). I see but bad news for the newer Garmin 2567 ...

Re: Worth the upgrade to Nuvi2567 ???

You got a point there, to re-learn the user interface can be a pain. Especially when we are in a overseas country and not familiar with the roads or road signs are in foreign language, getting lost and dealing with GPS with unfamiliar user interface can be stressful. I've not used a 2575R before, w...

Re: Worth the upgrade to Nuvi2567 ???

IMHO, only if you value the Smartphone Link feature to share information ..where you parked, POIs, your destination and to get access to Garmin Live Services for real-time weather and traffic conditions ( don't know if valid for our region ) ...

Re: Worth the upgrade to Nuvi2567 ???

To add to your confusion, I have a 2575R which is actually a 2565 with the additional video recorder. Even though I have higher-end 3560, I still rely on my 2575R as my primary GPS (because I can connect an external antenna and get more accurate tracks). One word of caution though, I would not prog...

Re: Nuvi 2565 map disappear

Is the map you are using from SD Card or nuvi's internal memory? It is from the internal memory, you suspect the SD card could be faulty? My map version are: - 2013:10 Malfree, - 2013:10 Malsing, -2013:10 Navteq Garmin SG website confirmed these are the latest maps when I connected my PC to my GPS ...

Re: Nuvi 2565 map disappear

Forgot to mention another probably cause. Since you say it only happens on your cradle, consider unstable power. A unstable power source can drive the Nuvi crazy. To test out this theory, consider operating the Nuvi only on its internal battery mounted on cradle but cradle not plugged to power sour...
