i checked Garmin Website, Nuvi 300 does not support TTS.

Is it because of the recent software updates ?

S480, price is quite ok. Any Malaysia user buy this Nuvi 300 with TTS recently ?

What is the price and where you get it ?

Currently checking with Jchin but no reply yet.

I thought of getting it from Malaysia even the price is slightly higher then Singapore ( for the ease of warranty claim if it shappend ).

The problem is none of the reseller in Malaysia said Nuvi 300 support TTS.

Anybody kind to clarify on this ? Is it because of the newer OS upgrade ?

My guess is that it will work fine.
Just left any of plastic material on your dashboard under direct sun light.. See whether the garmin engineer did something on that or not??... i would like to know it myself also..

Re: Nuvi and SDHC ?

#57 Post by caseytan » Wed Aug 22, 2007 10:38 am

from Garmin Support Search :
Question: What is the largest Secure Digital (SD) card that my nuvi can accept?
Answer:

Below is a list of units and their corresponding maximum card size:

NUVI MODEL MAX SD CARD
2xx Series 2GB
350 2GB
360 and 370 4GB
6xx Series 4GB
Since 4GB is the max for higher ends, you can use normal 4GB SD Card, don't think Nuvi can support SDHC yet, if they support SDHC, the max capacity should be higher than 4GB.

Think it is wisest to store it out of the sun. I left mine on the windscreen yesterday for 2 hrs and it was very hot when I came back. Now dutifully taking it with me when I get out - may help me contribute some POIs while I'm walking around with it anyway! O:)

I think I have seen somewhere in the Nuvi's manual that it stated specifically not to leave it under the sun (or dashboard in this case).

Anyway, hot temperature will shorten the lifespan of the builtin battery and it is not replacable. Better keep it cool. Also stated in the manual, once in a while, drain the battery then recharge the battery to the fullest without interrupting its charging cycle for a longer battery life.

My Nuvi is on the beanbag friction mount sitting on top of the dashboard. I leave it there all the time. I cover the Nuvi with a golf cap (got this excellent advice from some gurus here) to shelter it from the direct sunlight, as well as hide it from prying eyes! No problems so far, but I have to add that my SUV is seldom parked under the sun; if I do, I normally wind down the windows a bit to get some ventillation into the cabin.
