- How to extend battery life
These are recommendations for extending battery life of nüvi navigators if you find yourself in a situation that there is no source of power available for charging your device:
•Store the unit within proper temperature.
For example: remove the unit from car's console every time that it's no longer needed. If you have to park your car outdoor directly under sunlight, please avoid leaving the unit inside your car under extreme heat.
•Reduce the volume.
•Reduce the screen's backlight.
•Shorten the screen's timeout.
•Turn off Bluetooth™ (for supported devices)
- Memory card size for nüvi models
Users can purchase a blank memory card from an electronics supplier. It can be used to store files, such as maps, images, MP3 songs, video files, waypoints, and custom POIs. The recent nüvi devices support high capacity microSD and microSDHC memory cards, especially the nüvi 3560LM can support a card size up to 32 GB.
- Auto Zoom function in nüvi
Typically a nüvi will remember the map's scale that set by user, but sometime the map will zoom out when driving on highways, tollways, intersections, or roads with many lanes or crossroads. If driver drives very fast, the map would also be zoomed out automatically. When a car resumes normal speed, then the map will return to the scale previously set by user. Some nüvi models provide the ability to enable or disable auto zoom function.
- Reset Go Home in nüvi
Sometimes users may want to reset "Go Home" position. This can be accomplished from main menu, select Where To? > Favorites (or Saved in nüvi 3560LM) and delete a list names "Home". Then a new Home position can be set.
- How to find roads or sois in nüvi
From main menu, select Where To? > Address. Make sure the road or soi (narrow road in Thai) that you are searching locates in the city name displayed on top of the screen, otherwise select the right city first. Then select "Search All". The next screen will ask for house number, just select "Done" to skip this page. Next enter street or soi name, for example: if you are searching Si Lom road, enter "Si Lom Rd." If searching for Si Lom soi 3, enter "Si Lom Soi 3". Sometime if you just enter name without specify Rd. or Soi, the listing will show both road and sois if there is enough space on the resulting page.
