    Secret Startup Commands and hidden menus in Garmin devices

    There are several undocumented commands available,on Garmin handheld receivers , users call them hidden menus or easter eggs-
    Note that many of these features are not documented by Garmin for a reason. They are generally for testing the device and are not intended for end users. The modes are not supported by Garmin and may cause you to lose data in your machines. Try this at your own risk!

    Secret Startup Commands and hidden menus in Garmin devices

    I've collected on the internet some examples of these hidden menus (thanks naviboard.de-garniak.pl-naviuser.de and many others) you can test them and check if they'r correct (may be translations are not proper), posting in this thread your discovers. we'll update our list-

    I remember there was one more diagnostic menu for Oregon. It was on the trip computer page. Hold the icon in the lower right corner of the screen for 10-15sec.

    Cheers,

    thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this info on the garmin/nuvi.

    why does garmin hide this important info.

    i have found this info nowhere else.

    btw - if the unit is connected to external power, the battery level icon does not appear, but you can still press/hold that spot (upper right/center) and see system info.

    now if i could just interpret/decode all the info i'm seeing...

    Thumbs up

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Function of "diagnostic log or tracelog (register the trace of your way without consider the map rote)" in the nuvi 2x5, 2x5w, 550, 750, 755, 765T, 1490, 3760,..., and probally in other models.

    I found it in the link:
    in english (full explanation) This post requires you to click the "LIKE this post" button and hit F5 to read this content.
    in portuguese This post requires you to click the "LIKE this post" button and hit F5 to read this content.

    I save in .doc attachment the content of the links.

    OBS: This function is mainly useful to build or improve accuracy of current maps. But, if you use this function to normal usage, will disable the tracklock; and old software of GPSs may recalculate several times the rote, what may be disturbing for someÖ Newer versions of the software to my device donít make this mistake (I donít know about other models, but guess the same).
