  3. 2007 navi update

    General MC Message Board
    I am unable to find the thread: "how to update your NAVI to the latest of everything" so here goes: I downloaded the 4.60 firmware and installed it. I can recognize all points of interest and search by name, so it is not the Firmware that stopped this feature. I am...
  4. Easy way to get custom google maps and import favorites into 2012+ NAVI

    The OTE
    There may be other ways / easier ways to do this, but I finally figured out a method that is as reliable as I am able to get it. I've got a cross country trip (TX to CA to WA to WY to CO to TX) in a couple wks and have spent several hours creating custom maps in google maps and identified all...
  5. How to update Navigation unit with free maps that aren't from Garmin

    General MC Message Board
    Here's a way you can get updated maps for your GoldWing Navi (pre 2012 only I think), without having to pay Garmin an exorbitant amount. Don't get me wrong, I believe companies are in business to make a profit, and if Garmin gave me a way to buy a lifetime update for an equivalent price, as I...
  6. Navi Upgrade to North America 2011

    GL1800 Tech Board
    No problems occurred. Just follow the instructions. Also, nothing interesting on the upgrade. They did add all my favorites to the map with a small round dot but most aren't labelled so you'll have to mouse over or zoom in to see what they are. So far it's just some streets and POI's added...
  7. Beta Testers wanted for testing Transparent Overlay Maps on GPS

    Electronic motorcycle devices
    I ride a 2010 GoldWing level 2 and a 2002 Honda VTX 1800C. I had long ago equipped my VTX with a Garmin Zumo 550. I went through a long learning curve of all the possibilities afforded by having GPS on my motorcycle. Planning routes, saving favorites and even geo-caching while outriding. I even...
  8. XM Weather Antenna in 2010 Navi

    GL1800 Tech Board
    Is there a way to connect a Garmin Zumo 665 to the on-board XM antenna on a 2010 with Navi? I'd rather do that than purchase another Garmin antenna since the Honda has one in it already. I also don't want to use the Honda Navi for the weather since it's an additional subscription, and the Zumo...
  9. How do I turn on Navi volume on 2012 GPS?

    GL1800 Tech Board
    Okay, so I'm using the Honda OEM GPS for the first time this morning. I program in my destination. The GPS takes it. I hit go. I see my route. I take off. B-U-T as I'm riding, I don't hear any directions. When I arrived, I read in the manual that I should push the Voice/Guide button (already...
  10. NAVI Programming

    GL1800 Tech Board
    I finally took the trouble to program a route on my Honda NAVI using five or six via points to get just the route that I needed for a ride we will be taking soon. I did a dry run of the route today and discovered two problems that I am hoping someone can help me with. 1. Once I have run the...
