Re: Update GPS

On the navi, hit the menu button and then the info screen. You will see the date of the new img file. I don't know about the gpx files as the 2006 navi does not support gpx files, but I do believe they can be integrated into your navi system.

Re: Update GPS

Ok.. Thanks for the info.. Here in Florida where there are a lot of lakes and ponds that might obscure the roads, I do not have the obscurity problem that you are seeing with the trees, and I have the navi set for the default magnification.. Next time I ride through one of the state parks, I will be...

Re: Update GPS

Viking.. Also a big upside to using this site is that the maps are updated the first of every month.. Here in Florida roads are being added frequently to keep up with the population and I am noticing that the maps are keeping up with the road construction..

Re: Smartphone question

Well you can pick up a small mp3 player at walmart for about $10, copy your music to the player and then put the player in the fairing pocket.. Most mp3 players give you about 8 hours of play time before you need a recharge. You can then keep your phone in the right fairing pocket or trunk...

Re: Smartphone question

Yes, you can plug your phone into the male plug that is in the left pocket in the fairing, turn your sound system to AUX and the music on your phone will play thru the bike speakers. You can also charge your phone at the same time using the power plug also located in the left pocket.

I ride a 2006 with navi. I plug my smartphone into the aux jack, turn the volume on the phone to max and then adjust the volume for the onboard navi to 50% higher than the aux volume. This allows me to listen to the music from my smartphone thru the onboard speakers and when the navi gives me a dire...

Re: 2008 GPS Update Questions

There are no POIs on the updates that i get, but it does not matter because ever since the hardware update to 4.9, I could not access the POIs even using the garmin map that came with the 4.9 hardware update..

Seems like you momentaraly lost power, and when that happens, all settings revert to neutral of "factory" settings. You may also have lost all your radio station presets.
Thanks Steve

Speaker problem

2006 GL1800 Navi

I drove over railroad tracks while the radio was playing.. Once I crossed the speakers were still playing, but they sounded as if they were in a barrel. The levels of bass, treble and fader are all at zero.. Any ideas?

Thanks
