    Default Garmin nRoute

    I have been using Garmin nRoute fro sometime and I prefer it to Mobile PC when navigating long car journeys.
    For some time I have been getting a "Not Responding" error whwn I open nRoute and try to zoom in or out on the map on my laptop. I get the identical problem on my netbook. I have attempted a clean re-install of nRoute after a clean out of the registry. At fist the program work flawlessly and then the error re-appears. I have a destop install that seems to work without problem. The laptop & netbook intall are on dual core computer so I am not sure if that will make a difference.
    I realize that nRoute is a little old but perhaps someone else has had a similar problem and perhaps has a come up with a solution to this.

    I appreciate any help you may be able to offer.

    You're not mentioning under what OS you're running nRoute.
    If it's running on Windows Vista or Windows 7 you might try to set "Windows 95" as compatibility mode for this legacy application.

    I wonder if it is with a particular mapset?

    I have been using Garmin nRoute (now v2.7.6) on my notebooks (currently Win 7 x64 and XP x32) since 2003 on an almost daily basis. I have 39 (yes I counted them) maps and charts installed and have never really encountered any problems apart from comms setup tweaking in the past.

    I also prefer it to Garmin Mobile PC.

    Scubadoo:
    Thank you for your response. It got me thinking about the mapset that might have been installed when the problem started and those that have not changed since then. I uninstalled MetroGuide Canada v5 on my laptop and netbook and the problem disappeared I re-installed it and the problem re-appeared? I wonder what is diffrent about the Metroguide map thatmight make this occur. I am alsonot sure why it does not happen on my desktop. I don't know if it is related but when the error occurs there are two instances of nRoute in the Task Manage.
    Thanks again. 39 mapsets all working innRoute that's pretty impressive.
