I have just purchased a NUVI 260W having been using GARMIN Mobile XT for some time and was wondering if anyone has been able to show actual speed whilst on route ?
I realise that if you press the bottom left corner where the arrival time is, it displays a 'dashboard' of sorts and the speed is there, but I would prefer the speed be shown on main screen like it is when not on route.
I have recently acquired the Nuvi 260 unit. (My First GPS)
I have notices that if you are enroute to a destination then the arrival time is displayed. The only time I get the speed on the map display is when I have it just on Show Map without any destination loaded.
Just purchased a nuvi 260W and the map screen does show the speed as well as the estimated arrival time. Had mine updated by salesman , he installed the latest firmware. Maybe that's all you have to do.
