When the unit is plugged into the computer and mounted you should be able to view the drive itself and see what's really there.

Ok, that's not the problem then.

Using CNNA It seems like the speed limit info only works when I'm following a route. When I'm just using map without routing, I'm not getting speed limit to show in the dashboard after setting it to view speed limit. Am I missing something?

Is that while using the Nuvi Dashboard? It works for me, even when I'm not navigating.

Here's an example.

Not using the Nuvi dashboard. I'm using the motorcycle profile but have added speed limit to the four field dashboard.

Just an observation but seems like its not user friendly because it has so many options to be able to do things. I have a 478 and like it. I'm used to it but have a Montana on the way. Seems like there's alot to learn but once you get things set it works well...though my thoughts may change once I have it. Fortunately, LOTS of info and help here by those who've gone through the "start-up" phase already.

The size of this thread and the relentless questions on how to use it to poor Emmbeedee and Drtbyk give me cause for alarm!
These fellas are carrying this thread.

Agreed; it seems like the same basic questions are asked and answered several times a week. Perhaps new-to-Montana folks should be directed to read through the wiki first. I know it was a huge help to me when I got my Montana.

I have your same concerns DP. I have been following this thread since the beginning and still haven't pulled the trigger.
I used a $80 Tom Tom for a 5000+ mile trip last year and it never once froze, shut off or had to be rebooted. I do understand that this GPS has far more capabilities, but when I am traveling I just want information from a GPS. I don't want it to be a liability. That being said I have been thinking about buying one for use in geo caching and let it and myself graduate to using it on the bike.

You can still switch to the Nuvi Dashboard in the Motorcycle profile to test if you get the speed limit indicator.

I successfully installed CNNANT 2013 from the DVD onto my old XP desktop with the Montana connected via USB. Then I did the Lifetime Maps update.

Now on a 2nd brand new Win8 notebook I'm trying to do the same but the DVD won't install. The same Montana is connected in Mass Storage as I can see both the main internal memory and the 8GB uSD as 2 driver letters. DVD runs Garmin Map Setup and after I type in the product key from the DVD case it says "The Product Key is Not Valid for this Map Update."

I am supposed to be able to install it on multiple PC's as long as the same GPSr is connected during install, right?

Ok so I thought maybe it wants the nuMaps Lifetime product key. No, if I use that product key it says "The Product Key you entered is not a valid Product Key."

Googled around but don't see the answer.

If you use BaseCamp, you don't need to install the maps on the computer. If the gps is plugged in, it should see the maps on the gps.

I think this is key - it doesn't appear "user friendly" until you're used to it - then it becomes "user friendly" once it's no longer intimidating.

ok that's good to know. But in this case this is a new computer that I do want all the maps on. Also I haven't even installed maps onto the Montana yet, only on my old PC. So is there some trick to install maps onto 2 PC's? no issues with Win8 right? And why does the window say it is doing an update instead of an install?
