Hi folks,

I have the GTM 12 coupled to a Nuvii 300 and it works very well.
Looking at the instruction manual two sets of icons are shown. One is the US type (the type displayed on my setup) and the International Red Triangle type. Is there anyway I can get my Nuvii 300 to display the triangles instead of the US ones?

Last week went up to Wigtown in SW Scotland. Used A1 to Scotch Corner and then A66 to M6 with no problems as regards receiving traffic messages. Stopped at Southwaite services on M6 and lost all messages. No further reception anywhere in the Dumfries Galloway area along the A75 to Stranraer.

What version of the Nuvi software do you have (Settings, System, About)? Have you used the WebUpdater to keep the firmware and GTM firmware up to date?

Hi Swing,

Current Nuvi 300 Software details per my unit:
Software Version 4.10
Audio Version 2.00
GTM10 SW Version N/A (I have a GTM12??)
GPS SW Version 2.80

I recently downloaded a software update for the GTM12

Cheers

Morvern

Hmm, I would have expected it to automatically display the International icons for you.

If you go to Settings/Locale, what is the overall locale (listed in the blue bar) set to, and what are the Language and Voice set to?

The GTM version is only displayed when the GTM is connected (and both are powered), but I suspect it is v3.70 (might be worth a check when next in the car).

Hi Swing,

The GTM 12 software is 3.70 and the locale is British....British Voice and English.

Thanks

Well, that's strange, as I would expect the International symbols.

Might be best to contact Garmin to ask them.
