Re: gps updates

As an bit of information some of you might find useful, my 2008 GL1800 Navigator has and requires the CF card; the SD card will not work in it, according to the Garmin rep. So, fellow bikers, ensure that you know which type of card you have before you buy a new one from any vendor. The 2009 and 201...

Re: Leaking Left Fork Seal

I recently replaced my leaking left fork seal again.
Also, replaced the fork springs with Progressive and deactivated the anti-dive with a nickel.
No problems with diving even with a tire screeching stop (abs), ride is smooth and the seal isn't leaking (yet).

Re: gps updates

Canadian Honda Goldwing owners - does anyone know what mapping data is on the 2010 update that Honda says they have available - Part number 39250-MCA-L20 priced at $258.50 on a CF card. They say it is a 2010 Upgrade CF mapping card, and they claim it is applicable to 2006 to current GL1800 navigati...

Re: gps updates

If you buy this update card from Honda, it is ready to work by replacing your existing card.

You could also buy the dvd from Garmin or resellers and make you own card. Just be sure that it is the non-NT version of CNNA 2009. This method may save you a few dollars.

Re: Hunting stationary Idle on GL1800 "06" modelyear

That is good news!
Best to start with the easy/low cost possibilities. Sometimes only the costly repair will fix the problem.
Interesting to know that is what it took to repair.

Re: gps updates

Be aware that the latest CF update card from Honda that they call there "2010" update is actually CNNA 2009. This map is made from data way back in April of 2008. Garmin has stopped producing the non-NT version of the database file that we need in order to update our units that use CF cards. (The NT...

Re: Navi System on GL1800 (2008) GERMAN SPEECH

I don't know if it changes the speech part, but I have what may be the latest European firmware update for the navi system. Should give you the text in German. I could email it to you if you send me a pm with a valid email address. You will probably need to use the 'forced update' procedure that is ...

Re: 06 Honda Navigation

BTW, in case you're interested, Garmin should be releasing the newest software (version 10) and new mapping data within the next couple of weeks. Hopefully that might take care of the problems with the unit showing you riding through the middle of a lake when you're on a major roadway. Don't get to...
