Scanned most of the 38+ pages of this forum and this post seems to be the closest to what my biggest beef with my Nav II (Garmin 2610?)
I've had it for a while now and while I'm not that savvy with all the features, I've had relatively few problems. After RA in Asheville last year, I've started getting "bubbles" on the screen as I've read a number of posts about delams and currently 'live with it' as its not too bad. But, maybe I ought to call Garmin to investigate the possibility of repair???
And the beep, beep, beeping is a problem primarily when I have the sun over my shoulder, so I'm assuming the touch screen setting may be set too sensitive????
But, back to the main issue I've experienced and would like inputs / suggestions ... dropping / trouble finding satellites. Sometimes it seems that 50% of the time the silly thing is "searching for satellites"!! Shortly after having it installed I commented about this to the dealership and they stated that the mountain west doesn't have as many satellites 'tuned' towards it and it would work better on the coasts?? I didn't see much improvement on my trip to RA, and in talking with other folks that have other brands of GPSs, they have signals / connected to satellites all the time here in Utah. So, does the Nav II require external antenna(s) to work better, or do I have a moderately defective unit, i.e., something else I should discuss when I call Garmin???????
BTW ... hope too see you all at CCR this year in Utah, as long as your Nav IIs guide you here without dropping satellites too often!!!
