Question

Why is the Tom Tom GPS I purchased from Best buy a few months ago taking a very long time to get the requested location and provide directions?

Must the car be stationary in order for GPS to get directions and does it take longer for a moving vehicle to get directions? Does the car moving have any effect at all?

No you do not need to be stopped for the GPS to navigate a route. Make sure your map is up to date.... Even when purchased new the mapping can be outdated and then take longer to load. Also, make sure your GPS is in an open area when you program a destination in, it takes longer for the GPS to find you when you are surrounded by trees or tall buildings

You plug it into your usb port, create an account, then you can update every few months I think.

Go to garmin.com and into the support tab at the top left and download the Garmin software for your computer. Plug your GPS into the computer after the software is installed and it'll give you the option at some point to update your maps. They'll probably have a new map quarterly, though not much will change on the maps.

Question

Garmin 50 LM GPS

Just bought a Garmin 50 LM, didn't want all the bells and whistles. Very easy to use, but it does not have a recalculating voice prompt when you make a wrong turn, also took it for a test run and it bypassed my destination???? Is there a Garmin that has this feature? My last Garmin got stolen, wish I could remember the model #.......loved it.

All GPS should reroute you. You may have a defective product or it may need an update.

My nuvi 1300 would say "recalculating" personally I found a little annoying. I did notice that with the 40 and 50 it doesnt say that.

Just about all truckers editions will be costly $600 or more. Remember you get what you pay for. I would check at truck stops to compare.

If the garmin of your choice does not have it installed, you can download it right from their site when you log into www.garmin.com/mygarmin
once you are there and your GPS is plugged in via USB you choose to update software and the optional updates will be listed. Just pull down the language menu and select Portugese

You can put several routes in the unit. The most I have done is three. You can put them in the order that you intend to travel.
