Art_Deco saidI suspect Paul was driving on some minor road, private driveway or other surface not known to the GPS device. When he reached a known road the GPS then gave the message "Driving on Road" which also explains why his car icon appears to be sideways. He had just entered the road, and not yet turned left or right. Correct, Paul?Nope. I was at a gas station, underneath the canopy where it got no signal. Within seconds of driving away, it locked on and correctly displayed the "correct" road (Pinal Ave).
SxyDrkHair saidMcCartney Rd? That is somewhere in casa grande and where you live? lolHow'd you ever guess?

beneful1 saidDidja ever compare the voices on the Garmin driving around...compare the British female voice to the US one. The Brit voice sounds so polite in comparison. LOLNot yet. Maybe I'll take a road trip today and try that out.
mindgarden saidI just got mine networked to the autopilot on my boat. I can just tell it where I want to go and kick back with a beer or take a nap.I wish my plane had autopilot so I could program the routes and take a nap or watch a movie or something. Autoland would be nice too, as long as it doesn't wake me up till it's parked and shut itself down.
...er, not. I can just imagine how that would work out. Actually, it won't change course by itself unless you press the "approve" button.
