Just a correction - I did get to add a weight value this morning but checking now it wasn’t saved.I was able to add weight OK & later got the GPSr to sync to the all for the missed rides & walks..
irnbru Sandra can tell you all about sat nav and language. Hers was colourful to say the least!Voice activation.......the machine is saying not available for this language I put in British English....perhaps I should try Russian
Any ideas or help welcomed....thank you
Must admit I do wonder about the wifi update capabilities of some kit!AT LAST.....the Garmin 890 is operating as it should now.
Campsite directory....voice commands....navigation.....weather.....all good.
Been playing around with the machine and liking it very much.
I was trying to update the maps and software via the wifi.....after 2 factory resets I was still having no joy.
Thinking this must all be down to Garmin outage.
So tried the computer route via Garmin Express.....SUCCESS all good.
Thought I would pass this on for anyone else tearing their hair out at the moment trying to configure the machine.
I have a 2003 copy of the truckers Atlas?. Seriously I had a hard time getting the Garmin to play ball, it wanted to route me (and did several times) down unsuitable roads, then I wanted to reset and re route I had to find a layby, and sit and go through all the menus. The final straw (for me) was it was 5mm to big for where I wanted to place it (in my eyeline). So I swapped it out for a smaller Tom Tom. who`s interface I an used to having had one in the US R-V courtesy of Wall Mart!.We bought a new Garmin 890 a few days ago.
No problem downloading the software and map updates.
But the campsite directory and voice commands are just not there........tried just about everything.
Before we came across the outage situation we rang Halfords to arrange a refund and order us in a TomTom Go Camper instead.
May hang on though and see what happens once this Garmin problem gets resolved.
Still in two minds to exchange the unit for a TomTom though.
What would you do?? .......and please don't say buy a map
Now I found the opposite. The Garmin was a right PITA. not at all user friendly. Which goes to show there is no "one size fits all". The T-T interface and downloads are simpler and quicker IMV.The problem with Garmin are temporary, they are under attack. I found the Tom Tom to be inferior and that is permanent.
OR "The truth is out there".The end is nigh .....
