Question to Screen Brightness

The screen brightness can be adjusted after pushing the power button and using +/- buttons. When you push the minus button it goes down 30%, 20%, 10%, "NV", 0%.

What does NV mean? What is the functionality?

Re: Would you buy the 66?

I was most likely one of the first buyer. I had a difficult start. The device was buggy and they had to change my first delivery by a replacement.

Re: GPSMAP 66 Firmware 2.80

The GPS finally loaded the new release 2.8 but could not install it. I restarted the device many times and I was asked every time if I would like to install 2.8. No success - other than 2.5 which worked for me. Finally I could load the new release using the good old Garmin Express. So far it seems t...

Re: GPSMAP 66 Firmware 2.80

My GPSMap66 could not find the update after 8 hours and it does not show up in Garmin Express. Who was more lucky?

Re: First Impression, First Bugs

Hi all

I finally got a new device. Everything works fine and stable now. I have no connection issues anymore with Mac/Garmin. Not sure what was wrong with the old device. Anyway Garmin and the show where I bought the device fixed this fast and without bureaucracy.

Re: First Impression, First Bugs

Unfortunately the daily crashes did not stop. I sent the device back to the reseller for exchange/repair.

WLAN Software Update

Does anybody know how to perform a software update using WLAN?
I can't find a menu entry similar to the automotive devices?
