    Default I think my GPS is messing with me....

    Downloaded the North America 2015.20 maps and 3d from here, they installed just fine. Took the 765T out for a test drive and was taken to the wrong place, twice. The first time it took me half way around the wrong side of a circular neighborhood, and the second time the turn to my street was off by 400 feet and the location of my house was off by 80.

    Bad map or did I skip a step somewhere?

    Also how do I tell if the 3d is working? So far its just been the regular purple and gray maps. It shows up in map info and is checked.

    You probably need to hard reset it. Back up your favourites first if you want to restore them. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Hard reset is the immediate first aid for any unit behaving erratically. If that doesn't work, give it a very stern talking to.

    If you've modded it for 4D i wanna buy it. Just a typo i guess. The '3D' map is for city building and landmarks and will only show in a big city environ. Put it in simulator mode and set the location to a large city and have a navigate around.

    BTW, the 765 isn't really 3D capable. The '3D' images in your gmap3d.img are a semi-transparent overlay to the detail map and are more like the way perspective drawings are on paper than actual 3-dimensional images per se. This is from a 765 running TWN firmware, so the screen is a little different to your NA unit but the buildings and landmarks display the same:

    Overruled, I'll allow it. Thanks for the explanation about the 3d, I guess I can get rid of that big ass file if it doesn't do much. I'll try the hard reset and get back to you.
