2012 Navigation Garmin nuvi

Postby starmanjb » Sat May 05, 2012 9:19 pm



Ok, lets say I don't have a particular destination in mind. I just want to take a ride. And when I get back, it was a great ride and I'd like to save it or share it. I don't see anyway to do that in the menu items. Can anyone tell me how this is accomplished? I have a Garmin 50LM and when I plug it into Base Camp, it pulls all the logs of the trips I've taken. Problem is, there is no way to jack the Wing nuvi into a computer. Any suggestions?

IF, and this is a mighty big "IF", the 2012 Garmin NAVI does save logs, then you would need a card reader on your home computer (or laptop). The logs would be saved to the SD card in the trunk unit. (or did you mean an add on NUVI as opposed to the stock Goldwing NAVI?)

Okay - then - for sure, 2010 and earlier DO NOT, but the 2012 was supposed to have been endowed with some super powers, like planning your route on a computer and then putting it into the NAVI. The reverse may or may not be possible. All you can do is check the SD card from the Navi, in a card reader on a computer to see if there are any "log" files. I do severely doubt it tho. These are fairly limited GPS units as they stand stock.

This video on youtube states that the trips can be saved for others. The comment is made at about 2:15 mins.

Yep, you are right. It says you can plan your trips with the online planner and share them with others and that it records your trip so you can put it into your online planner, so you CAN do it. So, the next thing to do is get into your NAVI manual and find out how. Information is probably available on that online planner site also.

I checked with Garmin and what I want to do can't be done. Yes, you can use the web based Honda "Trip Planner" and save it in the SIM card and have the Navi read it. However, you can't just take a ride and save the trip without inputting a destination. If you do that, it wants to take you there by it's route, not one you want so if you deviate, you constantly get, "Recalculating". In addition, the Honda "Trip Planner" is not very good. It will always default to "Fastest Time" and so you can't try to plan a trip and pick the roads you want to travel. It's a flaw in the software that I don't know if they'll address or not. I like to travel, for example, the Lincoln Highway. If you try to plan a trip and start on Third Street, Beaver, PA and follow Tuscarawas Road (which is the Lincoln Highway), it will let you travel that road until you go to cross US Rt. 60 (a 4 lane). The moment you connect the Beaver side of Tuscarawas Road to the other side of US Rt. 60, it reroutes the trip through Beaver and up US. Rt. 60 as the "Fastest Time". So you can't plan a trip along the Lincoln Highway, staying exclusively on it. This is disappointing.

I have a question, somewhat related. Say, you are lost; you turn on the navigation, and it gets you to a location where you are no longer lost. But you are still miles from home. Can you turn the navigation off? Can you get it to stop giving you directions?

Absolutely. You can turn off the turn-by-turn and just have the map displayed.

You press the NAVI button till you get a beep (about a second and a half) and the voice output is silenced. Then if you wish to not see the map, you would change the display till it is gone. WARNING: but not a danger - you may get down the road a ways, and get a pop up window which covers the entire display, saying that there are no maps for the area you are in. To get this to go away, as the buttons do not work while moving - you have to come to a stop. Then the pop up will go away.

I think the trip planner isn't so bad. Just need to add stops. Going bike week next week and for the first time used the Honda trip planner and transferred to the SIM card on my 2013. All works, but somewhere the transfer changed and slight differences came up. Don't understand why it dad that. Also on the gps it says hwy 17. Trip planner says 15. Go figure. Anybody experience same?

you can edit and "create" your route with the planner. did this last year for my skyline drive , blue ridge and tail of the dragon ride. yes, if you deviate from the planned route you will constantly be bombarded by the "re-calculating" screens. two options for this are:
1)mute the navi audio.this also causes brief interuptions in music or other audio functions , which show up as "muted" pauses due to the system trying to tell you new instructions, only muted from audio.
2)pull over, and access navi menu to "stop navigation".this will allow you to proceed,albeit, without guidance. i find this preferable to the constant "in/out" silence of muting, plus it gives some freedom to "wing (pun intended) it.
and yes, if you enable the share option, the system WILL record your journey, no matter where you go, within a cetain range so that you can pull the sd card latter and upload and share you run.
this being said, some of these features are a little complicated ,but once you delve into it, can be quite enjoyable. mabe enough to upload some beautiful rides that others take and can share here.
keep 'winging boys!
:lol: I know people say we spend too much money on our rides, but I can't hear them when I'm 1000 miles away! :roll:

Nothing to do with NAVI or NUVI, but if you ride a lot and end up in places where help and services are scarce you might look into a SPOT 3 GPS device http://www.findmespot.com/en/ . It tracks and displays in real time where you are and if you have someone caring to check occasionally they can have some peace. My family checks my progress periodically with directions to take specific actions if I'm not moving and have not checked in as OK. I spend a good bit of time in the middle of nowhere and they wonder about my safety and where I'm at. Without cell coverage I'd be hosed if something happened so I bought a SPOT 3 and subscription that broadcasts and my GPS location every few minutes, allows me to send an SOS, send a non critical delay advisory and check in as OK regardless of cell coverage. My family can log into the website and see exactly where I am and where I've been (its a pretty nice track log). I pay an extra $2 for roadside assistance as well so should I have need it in the middle of nowhere; the company advises the local LEOs to have someone check on me and that its not life threatening. If I go down and can activate it the SOS sends emergency responders to mop me up. I also like being able to pull up where I've been on the website, it relates location, time, direction and speed I think (maybe not so good!). Its a nice device but it also gives me an alternative emergency system and my family gets some piece of mind.

Vikings post is to turn of the voice the way I read it. If you want to turn the route off so the pink line is not there directing you, you go into the route menu and select stop route. Then you just have the rolling map.

If your bike did not come with the Navigation system manual, get one. It is separate from the bikes owners manual. I had to read it, then go out and play with the GPS unit to understand the systems. I still pull it out now and then for something I do not use all the time.
