  1. Maps are the same
  2. POI are the same
  3. Size are not the same
  4. NT can not be used on old units.

City Navigator replaces City Select that is discontinued.

So if you have full non NT DVD could you then update next time to the NT version to take advantage of smaller memory requirements?

Share this post


Link to post

Yes, if your GPS suports it.

It takes less memory and uses fewer map tiles.

And is faster to transfer.

does anyone know if they will have an auto kit for the 60cx with NT instead of regular City Navigator? or can i buy the auto kit with Navigator and get a free upgrade to NT since it's past it's release date?

Darn. Already got the non-NT version to go with a 1G card. I guess it's cheaper to buy a 2G card than a new software package.

Does it has few details than non NT? if it is smaller in size....I am not sure if they take out more POI etc...missing details in certain area.

 

And this question is for everyone else who knows: our 60CSX....what kind of CPU do they use? I am not sure...like how fast is it? the speck...cuz when I upload the 1GB as full as i can...the map display in the GPS tend to slow down....so that is why i wonder how fast is the thing inside the GPS....i am not sure what kind of technology they use...like for computers CPU...but what is the thing call for our GPS that they use inside?

I noticed the same decrease in speed in my I-Que3600. The solution was to purchase several memory cards (128 to 256 MB) and load smaller portions of the U.S.

 

128MB gives me the entire state of North Carolina, as well as upper SC, lower VA, and eastern TN. I have other cards loaded with areas such as Houston, Orlando, Indianopolis, and Binghamton (NY), which are places I might find myself on short notice.

 

Not only does the map react faster, but the POI search is less cluttered. I don't get a McDonalds in Utah while driving in North Carolina.

FYI according to Garmin, in a conversation I had with them earlier today, other significant differences between NT and Non NT versions.

 

NT was designed to be used with the in car systems, and the outdoor units do not have the same indexing abilities using the NT compression system. The information is all the same, however you cannot allegedly perform a find nearest querry using NT on an outdoor unit, or search by name (if i recall the conversation correctly). They STRONGLY recommended i get the non NT version for my 76 CSx.

Seems to work fine for me on my 60CSx, and I have Navigator NT 8.0. What exactly am I not supposed to be able to do? I can find any POI containing specific letters, and all nearby POIs, or just nearby POIs for a certain type. I have a 1 GB card with half the US loaded into it at the moment. Everything seems to be working fine.

Just an ideia. Put some info also regarding the differences between City Navigator/Select and Metroguide.

City Select = obsolete and is replaced by City Navigator.

The only reason for use City Select is that it has smaller map size. Works better on GPS with less memory.

 

MetroGuide = City Navigator without autorouting. Same map info, same poi.

It is possible to get autorouting on the GPS using sendmap with MetroGouide.

It’s no copy protection on MetroGuide. (Old MG v4 did have autorouting)

The NT maps also has location tables for traffic information. The "+" sign after NT indicates that, but from version 9, there's no "+", since then all NT maps have traffic info support.

What are the pros and cons of using city navigator on an SD card?

Share this post

I guess tou meed pros and cons for City Navigator on DVD or memory Card.

 

I do see no reason at all using a memory card preloaded with maps.

 

With the DVD, you can install it on PC, plan your route.

You can the send the map to an emty memory card, that you can easy swap.

Great, thanks. That's what I was thinking too. So if I get the City Navigator on DVD, what kind/size of microSD card should I get? The 60CSx, came with a 64 MB.

You do not need to quote a post fully if you are going to reply the one above you,

 

If you get a 2GB, you can store all City Navigator on the card.

Customers that don't use Windows but want detailed maps have a reason. :-)

 

But I agree that if you have access to Windows, you probably want the DVD version to run locally.

If you go to Garmin's page for the Vista HCx and click on the "Maps" tab, it lists a bunch of maps that are compatible with that unit.

 

The list does include City Navigator North America NT.

 

However, the list is not complete, since it doesn't include the regular, non-NT version of the CN North America maps, and they are also compatible.

 

I currently have the CN NA NT 2008 maps on my Vista HCx, but not for long. The NT maps have been giving me some problems with lags and delays on the unit, so after a week of back-and-forth with Garmin tech support, I'm exchanging the NT maps for the non-NT ones.

 

See the description of my issues with the NT maps on the HCx in this thread.

OK, I use a iQue 3600 and a GPSMap60Cx. I don't see the NT software version as being compatiable with the iQue.

 

Question here: Which single software should I get to use on both GPSr the Non-NT vesrion of City Naviagator. Can I get 2008 and wait for the 2009 upgrade to be relased?

 

thanks in advance for any and all help

Just curious if anyone knows about the technical details of this new format. Do any 3rd party apps support it yet?

I'm interested as I have my own open source App that renders the current format IMG maps and I would like to have it handle this new format as well.

 

Thanks

I am a 66 y.o. woman and only semi-computer literate, so I am hoping to get some help understanding the process before I buy any thing else (and hopefully avoid buying the wrong thing.) I have a Garmin etrex Legend HCx for geocaching and want to use it for auto routing for occasional traveling and travel caching. (This would be occasional use only and there would be 2 people – one to drive and one to navigate.)

1. I understand that I should buy the City Navigator NT (North America) maps – correct?

2. If I buy the map on DVD I can then use my computer to load the maps to a memory card – correct?

3. How do I do that? While the card is in the GPSr? Or do I use a separate card device? I have a 4-slot SanDisk card thing but none of the slots is as small as the one in the GPSr.

4. Garmin.com sells a 256MB microSD memory card for $24.99, but other places sell much more memory for much less $$ (eg an HP 2 GB microSD for $8.99) Is it ok to use the bigger card (2GB or 4GB? I know it has to be a micro, not a mini or regular SD.) Is there any advantage to using the 256 MB card?

Thanks for your help.

Nancy

1. Yes. And you need the FULL version not the UPDATE version

 

2. Yes

3. The maps will be installed to your computer along with a software program named MapSource. You will use this program to select the map segments you want to load onto the microSD card. The card can either be in the unit or in a card reader. Usually the microSD card come with an adapter that allow it to fit in a regular SD card slot on the computer or card reader.

 

4. Don't buy the card from Garmin. They are much less expensive anywhere else. Get a 2GB card. You can get them anywhere (BestBuy, Amazon, NewEgg, WalMart)

Garmin recommends using SanDisk or Kingston brand cards, but any brand should work.

 

Garmin warns not to use SanDisk Ultra II 1 Gb cards ---they aren't compatible with the "x" series units.

 

The gps can't use more than a 2GB card.

Thanks for your help so far.

 

Now I have:

 

Garmin etrex Legend HCx

City Navigator NT (North America) 2009

Lexar 2GB microSD card

 

I went through the setup and unnlock procedures; I think I followed all the instructions carefully.

But the map is still locked. If I try to go through all the unlock steps again, it tells me that the code is already "consumed." If I try to retrieve the unlock code, it tells me that it was successfully retrieved.

But the map is still locked.

 

Any ideas?

 

I will probably try calling Garmin tomorrow; are they usually helpful or not so much?

 

Thanks,

Nancy
