    Tks,, I will test this in a day or two. Right now still trying to write the after-action report for GATS... I started at least 5 times, but got sidetracked.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Hi Mark,
    I just updated my 720, big update too. Now it doesn't seem to talk anymore. When it calculates a new route, I don't get the "Proceed to the highlighted route" message anymore. Any ideas?

    Update does not do anything to the sound. What "voice" do you have it set to? If I recall Samantha is the only one that will say that.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    FYI, for those of u that need to get the right micro SD "C" card, they're surprisingly cheap at WallyWorld. I bought one for back-up for 6 or 7 bucks. You might have to get the attention of the pimply faced nerd to unlock the thing, tho......Remember when a 1 or 2GB SD card was $45?

    Hey Mark, meant to tell you those cards did arrive safely and the Mrs. has put them up for me and we'll update when I get in next week. Hopefully it will correct the no GPS icon that seems to be popping up more and more. Thought it was at first the region (NY&NJ) but now it does it on straight stretches of interstate like I40, heck coming into Little Rock on 30 it bounced me off the road into a field then back into a county road, then promptly told me to make a "sharp left" onto the interstate.

    But something else I wondered about, will this update calibrate it as well it's is there something I can do? I know periodically on Google maps on my phone it wants me to move my phone around to calibrate. Just wondering if that is the primary cause for the speed shown while traveling. Example, I can be in a 70 zone, it will show the posted limit and my speed. My truck tops at 65. On flat ground it will suddenly show me running 80, I get the "speed warning" message then it will drop to ten under the limit, then go to the correct speed.

    Update: my 720 is still talking, just not talking as much before the last update.
