Hey guys,

So if we can listen to the GPS sound like the Mrs with, turn left, turn right, damn you missed the turn go back,,,,,,,,,,,can we add songs for listening to while waiting to get yelled at ?

There should be plenty of power for this if running powered while in the mount.

It would be great if they, the thread moderators or site controller, made you a moderator and allowed you access to only this new thread that you are trying to create. Furthermore if they do change the access allowability then you could appoint/allow access to only a couple/few of some other post'rs here that have regularly offered and replied with short concise and correct information, to assist you with the effort that will be involved to keep it updated. Say when you are away multi-day testing a Montana then they could keep the rest of us inline on target.

Hey 9Dave are you ready this thread.
The issue is that Dave has no way of giving me or anyone else control over one thread without giving control over all threads and I clearly don't want that kind of power. It might corrupt me.

But as others have said, as long as we have control over the first few posts (and I've put placeholders there) then we can keep editing those posts with the best info there is on the Montana.

Noticed that one post already got removed. That is a good card to have in your back pocket.

There's no way to get the Montana to sing to you but there are plenty of alternatives - Scalas, Senas, whatever. Yesterday I experimented with listening to the FM radio on my G4, then podcasts on my iPhone through the Scala and was surprised at how well it worked.

If you wired the audio output cable from the Montana cradle to the input on a Scala, for instance, that should work nicely

I asked FatChance politely and he removed his post. But we won't always get cooperation...

Hey Dan, why don't you add a placeholder post and I'll remove my extras, so you can have the second post spot. Not that it's any reflection on your status, of course.

O You can get that.... It's called a Zumo 550, 660 or 665

But if you want the good navigator functions those do not come with the Zumos.

Into a Scala? No need - it's Bluetooth from the iPhone, of course.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks!
With no audio your status screen (one click on the power button) would look like this



If you plug in an earphone or the Rugged Mount/Auto Mount you should see this

Thanks to both of you - works perfect thanks.

I was thinking that if you have trouble with this, I can expand the file on my Netbook and make gupdate.gcd available to you or anyone who needs it, through a Dropbox share.

I have been looking into this to work with the GPS to the Scalarider Q2 (iPhone already works fine).
I have been looking at one of THESE. Can't find one locally to give it a try and haven't pulled the trigger to order one. But then I may try to update the Scala to the new offering(s) out there.

I thought Emmbeedee, you had went through the instructions with Mac. ??
Download the update. Get The UnArchiver program. Open with UnArchiver. Then the results will look just like the file/folder on the Montana. Drop gupdate.gcd into the Montana Garmin folder. Easy Peasy.

It is fairly easy but I must admit, while I am using a Mac most of the time, I do have a Netbook on my desk as well and save a few minutes when I update by plugging the Montana into the Netbook.
