It seems it is not just Camos that tries to make this transition 'pleasant', it may seem pleasant but it was the reason I stopped using the GPS audio, it turned my music off without giving me any useful information.

I do not believe it is the Garmin problem, but your Scala
I think you describe the problem well, but I also think that if some kind of signal from the gps woke the channel, it would work better. In my situation, the problem happens even if no music is playing.

What if you plug the audio out from the Montana into a Bluetooth dongle and then pair the scala to the dongle? Would that take care of the priority issue?

When I pair my G4 as a headset to my zumo 550 I don't remember missing any GPS directions.

I don't have a Bluetooth dongle at this time or I would try it.

Also, any such beep would have to be switchable on the Montana so you would not get that beep when using the Automobile mount or other some other external speaker.

I did a small day trip today and noticed this while going down the road and had to remember my route in my head since it kept wanting me to go back to the previous waypoint. Hope I make sense.

Thanks
Settings->Routing->Off Route Recalculation = OFF will allow you to do whatever you want while you are routing with no effect on the route.

Cheers,

shortcuts

Hello,
I like the new Montana very much, but I'm having trubbles with the shortcuts.

I made a few new profiles from one of the original Montana profiles as described in the FAQ thread.
In every new profile i have shortcuts to other new profiles and one shortcut back to the original profile.
All shortcuts in all profiles work, except the ones to the original Montana profile....
What am i doing wrong?

Cheers,

Peter

I don't have a dongle. (That doesn't sound right.)

Also, my iPhone is connected via BT. I'd prefer to keep it that way. And there is a line in - I should be able to use that.

I agree - it would be nice if it was selectable. But it wouldn't be that much of a problem if it wasn't. It would just sound like the announcement system in airports and train stations that ding, then give a message.

It could even be a language specifically including that bell or gong, or whatever it was that woke the audio channel.

I can probably create a language doing what I need with Garmin Voice Studio.

Have you tried deleting the bad Shortcut and redoing it?

Yes I did.
I know it has someting to do with the original profiles because, shortcuts from other original profiles also didnt work and shortcuts of profiles based on the original files do work.
I also tried giving them other names.

Cheers,

Peter

I don't have any shortcuts to "original Profiles" but I just created one and it works just fine. I can call it from a custom Profile and from another original Profile.

What software version are you using?

Cheers,

Pissed My Montana 600 experiences...not too good!

So largely on the strength of this thread I just purchased a Montana 600 and AMPS rugged mount (from GPSCity).

1. Mount was defective (security screw not working). Got that replaced. Got CN maps installed after a minor hassle.

2. After a week on the phone with Garmin we conclude the Montana 600 is ALSO defective (powers off randomly and won't calculate routes properly).

I was hoping to get this whole setup working before an upcoming trip...no way now. The "beta tester" comments I've read have taken on a new meaning...

--Doc

PS. Sure wish Apple would come up with some GPS offerings...I've really had it with Garmin.

When you say "it doesn't work" just exactly what does it do?

Try this, create a new Shortcut and the only thing it does is call a Profile (original, say, Classic). Add that Shortcut to one of the original Profile Main Menu's and to one of your customer Profiles. Does that Shortcut work?

Cheers,

I just tried as you discribed.
The new shortcut (to Classic) does not work in an original profile and neither in the custom profile...
