Thanks.
How about posting a screenshot of the view you do get?

You need the Nuvi dashboard which you have, and also in Setup/Map/Orientation, choose Automotive Mode.

In anticipation of receiving my AMPS rugged mount, I am looking over the instructions. In http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/Mo...str_web_ML.pdf I find:

"If necessary, connect the serial data wires to your vehicle:" (then proceeds to tell which color for what.)

Under what circumstances would I want these serial data wires connected? I have no idea what they do.

You don't want to connect them to anything unless you have a separate data logger or marine radio or laptop computer on your bike.....

Chop them off and shrink seal the ends.

Press the "triple bar" icon (lower right corner of your screen) to open the map menu.

Then press "Setup Map" on the screen.

Select [Orientation] Automotive Mode.

Select [Dashboard] Nuvi.

That was it!

I was confused by my "automobile" profile versus the "automotive mode" in orientation.

Thank you Emmbeedee, Yossarian and Atlas Cached for helping me out. Sometimes it is the simplest things that are the hardest thing for me to figure out.

Don't feel bad, the new Montana and Basecamp terminology confuses a lot of folks, especially when posters don't use the exact terminology shown on screen.

This is, after all, rocket science....

Learned an important lesson today on the Montana. Headed out for a ride with a guy, opened the Trip Computer and went to reset it. I was riding slowly at the time, glanced down and seen Reset All Settings at the bottom of the list......NOPE!!!! That sure reset it alright.....wiped out my entire profile!!!!

I spent the next 10 miles setting it back up on the move.

Don't do that again!!!

Try this: Setup-> Shortcuts-> Create shortcut-> Name="Reset ODO", You will find a red 180 turn Icon to use, No change to Profile, Setup->Page down to Reset, "Reset Trip Data-> ON, back to shortcut page, No Where to?, Application to "Map". Then "Add to Menu". Move it to Drawer later if you want.

This does not change anything except resets just the odo, times, speeds, etc., and returns you to the map in one second! I use it all the time. Put it in all profiles.

Not that it helps you when you are on the bike already, but you can back up your profiles when you have the Montana in USB storage mode, just by copying them to your hard drive or other choice of media.

I do it, and I'm sure it will pay dividends some day.
