+fabric8r Posted November 2, 2009 Share Posted November 2, 2009 I have been waiting for years for a GPS to hit the market that I can use for hiking in the mountains, geocaching, AND navigating roads. Oregon 550t finally seemed the smart choice to upgrade from my GPS12map, that can do all I want. So I spent the big bucks for a new 550t. How disappointed I was to program in a route for a drive through central Montana, with waypoint stops along the way, only to hit the road, choose that route I put in, and get the following message: "Route Calculation Error: Maps do not have routable roads in this area." I contacted Garmin Support, and they informed me via e-mail I had to purchase something called City Navigator NT software. That shocked me because the 550t I purchased said it had maps pre-loaded. that is why it costs $100 more than the one without the maps loaded. $600 bucks is enough money spend, I sure don't want to cough up any more! So what is going on? What did I get for the extra hundred bucks?! Do I just need to turn something on? Very disappointed in Garmin right now, I feel I have been swindled. Any help/advice please?
