Can you pinch and zoom with gloves on?
Garmin website says mini only!
Forget all the 3d views, I'd like to know when it's put in 2d map mode how far out can you zoom without roads disappearing? Gravel roads to be exact, whatever you call unpaved roads where you are. Specifically how many miles from left to right does the screen show and still show every umpaved road on the map? Thanks in advance
Edit: Nevermind, figured it out. You can use the share sheet in iOS to share a file with Garmin Drive (open it with Garmin Drive). GD will then ask you if you want to send it to your Zumo.
With the normal maps, small roads disappear at .8mi scale... however, with the topo maps now built into the Zumo XT, they are visible all the way out to 1.2mi!
See my pic 1 post above ^^... Choose topo maps and dirt roads are visible all the way out to the 1.2mi scale setting.
Thanks! could you possibly show me the same view but with Emporia Ks in the center of the screen and zoomed out as far as it shows all roads? Thanks for your help
With the regular maps, the little roads are visible to .8mi scale. With the topo maps (pictured below), they are visible at the 1.2mi scale.
One thing that doesn't seem to be possible...
Showing/Hiding specific tracks.
This is a real bummer. I can change the color of a track... and turn the entire "track layer" on/off, but I can't hide specific tracks .
Really hope this is addressed in a future update.
EDIT: I have now discovered that you can't show/hide tracks if you enabled GARMIN EXPLORE during setup of the Garmin Drive App. See this post:
Am I understanding this correctly, that if you have 50 tracks saved in your device, you can't selectively turn individual tracks on and off? One of the most annoying things about my Monterra is the track management. If you try to display more than a few saved tracks, the unit can't handle the load. The other annoying feature is they are all sorted by distance from your current location and not alphabetically, I can't imagine what idiot thought that would be the preferred sort method. In Locus, I can show 50 tracks on the screen with only a marginal performance hit.
Does the Zumo XT have the pathetic 10,000 point limit on tracks?
I don't know about the track limit.
That's very disappointing and a complete deal breaker for me. Track management and display is a normal feature for any GPS. Leaving something like that out is very odd, I highly doubt it's going to be added at a later time.
What extra hardware did you need to mount it?
thanks @klinquist that was very helpful with the zoom detail.
Besides my SWMotech GPS mount, the Zumo XT came with everything required.
Yeah, it's important enough that I will likely be calling Garmin to inquire about it next week.
I'll be interested to hear how you go as Garmin 'support' has non existent in my experience.
Hoping to get one in a couple weeks when they arrive here! Finally looks like a decent replacement for a phone.
