Re: Garmin 660 or BMW Nav V.
Two things I don't like about the 660 on the RT:
- The way the cradle is connected to the Canbus, the GPS goes on automatically when I switch the ignition on. It has to (I couldn't do it myself otherwise), but I can't turn it off because the upper button is now under the shield, and I have no control with the thumb wheel. And I don't like to have that GPS on when I don't need it. Not terrible, but irritating.
- Worse, the angle of the cradle is such that the screen of the GPS becomes invisible under some lighting. On my GS, I had a sun shield or visor that I stuck with Velco around the unit, but now I can't do that anymore. By the way, I'd appreciate any tip to solve that problem. Thank you.
