Photolive was withdrawn for the UK as half the cameras stopped working and there seems to be no resolution for it Sad Obviously if you already have it, the remaining cameras that are networked through ...

Now its just as well the 3598 comes bundled with a 4GB micro SD card as this one will definitely not fit completely otherwise!

I reported a fairly major bug to Garmin today.

If you have the digital traffic enabled with the cable AND you also have traffic enabled on a smartphone using the Garmin Smartlink application, the 3 ...
