Update:

Because I love the 2720 so much, I've got another (cheaply!) off eBay. Lo and behold, there's no problem with the date on this one! I've configured both units identically, right down to the ...

I didn't realise the 2720 was that old!

Have you got the date and time set to auto adjust? If so you can switch it to manual set and put in the correct date and time.

Hi

I've just noticed that my 2720 is showing "28-JUL-00" as the date. I'm assuming that this is something to do with last year's Week Number Rollover. The actual time and navigation functions seem ...

I was a very happy man until yesterday. I replaced my ageing laptop (running XP) with a new one running Windows 7 (64 bit). Installed CityNavigator 7 from the DVD. So far so good. Made up a nice mapse ...

Hey cwog and transplant

Many thanks for your posts. I'm certainly going to check out the Nuvi 765 and Basecamp. In the meantime, I've just bought a second hand StreetPilot III on eBay, which has Ci ...
