11585Re: [tracker2] Attention Nuvi 1300 users
- Dec 5, 2010I'll check it out. The compressed mode code is due for a rewrite
anyway. I've seen something like you're describing before, and I think
it was related to a stack overflow.
As for the messaging while navigating bug, I'll have to make sure the
ETA packets aren't screwing up the T2. That's about the only
possibility if it's not a Garmin bug.
