    Default 2008 NAV Question

    Okay, going to be driving from Balmer, MD area to Twin Cities, MN - how in the hell does one go about showing entire route, when MN is not on the Eastern CD!?

    Do I need to "magically" switch DVDs somewhere in my travel or how the heck do I do this?

    Which kida sucks considering the cost of GM's vs Garmin .

    Maybe we could all get together at some mutual point and have the kid that designed it explain what he had in mind.Say a two week seminar

    I'm sure i'll get mine figured out the week before I sell it.

    The maps of all of North America are on one DVD. The system doesn't seem to be able to display your entire route (the maximum zoom is 128 miles) but you can enter any destination in NA. There are two ways to do this:

    1. Use the touch screen scroll function to display MN then zoom in to where you want to go and enter it as a destination.

    2. Press Menu -> Enter Destination -> Region. Select your destination region and enter an address.

    I have never travelled across regions with this nav system (Canada is all one region!) but I am assuming the routing is seamless.

    There is a way to display the entire route but you need to set a destination first. Change Route -> Route Options -> Display Route

    Ya gotta read the manual. A lot of this is not intuitive.
