Ok...thanks for the replies guys..
Anyways 2 major questions regarding my 1460.
Firstly, about the travel guide...that has to be bought eh? Is there a free travel guide somewhere around the net? Is it really useful? Have any of you used this feature?
Secondly, some questions regarding the routes... created a route with 4 destinations...the problem is, whenever I reach one of the destination, obviously I have to get down from the car thus the GPS would be turn off, and when I come back to the car and turn it on, it doesn't quite continue where we left off. Instead I have to create the route all over again. I'd think this is a poor programming but please enlighten me? Another problem is whenever we reach a destination, obviously the GPS doesn't quite read us as having arrived unless we actually pass by the actual coordinate on the map...if we just stop near to the destination it doesn't read as having arrived. So when we want to go to the next destination, there is no NEXT button or something to bypass that first destination. Instead the silly GPS would keep asking me to u-turn and re-route me back to that first destination thinking I've not arrived there yet. This routing problem also happens when we make a wrong turn while on our way to a destination and if for example, between those 3 destinations, the roads will be used again, the GPS gets all confused and thought that we are heading to another destination.
Basically, the whole routing thing is poorly programmed. Or am I missing something? Do advise and tell me your opinions about it and how you gets make use of that feature.
Multi-point route can be accomplish by splitting the journey into pre-plan journey vs one single journey. For example a journey from A - F can be split into 3 routes ( if you want to have 3 stops ). So in your GPS, you have it stored as for example Route A, Route B, Route C and Route D. You start off with Route A and rest/stop when you reach end of route A ( which is also start of route B). You then select Route B when you are ready to begin it to next destination.
Actually a single route can also accomplish the task if you do not want to go via a pre-determine route as above. If you are OK to let the GPS determine the route, you just let the GPS know your final destination and follow the route it computes. Stop anywhere you want along the way? As entire route is not completed, GPS will remember your current stop and continue from there.
As this is a GPS, you are also free to intentionally deviate from GPS chosen route. When the GPS detects this, it will dynamically re-calculate and offer a fresh routing based on your current location. This is what a GPS is for, getting you to the location you want. It can suggest a route but ultimately it is you who decides how about you want to go by.
But remember, a GPS is not "God". Common sense should prevail over a machine instructions
Suggest you familiarize with features/functions of the Nuvi so you can take full advantage of it. There are many ways to use the Nuvi that the user manual never mentions
