I'm curious about your experiences concerning USB connecting times for different Garmin units and / or different PC configurations.
I.e. time from connecting a Garmin unit (not yet powered) to the USB until the respective drive symbols show up on the computer.
Here are two examples for my units when connected to a Win XP (SP3) machine with USB 2.0 port:
Oregon 300: 22 seconds
Nüvi 1490: 76 seconds
No difference with or without SD card in unit.
I will post results for my Mac soon.
Please post your results, too. Thanks very much!
Mac OS X 10.6.8 USB 2.0
Nüvi 1490: 53 sec
Oregon 300: 24 sec
Nüvi 250: 18 sec
Does anyone have an idea why some units take sooo much longer to connect than others?
WIN XP SP3 USB 2.0
(I am allways turn on device before connection)
NUVI 1xxx - less 10 sec
NUVI 37xx - less 10 sec
NUVI 2x5 - depend of software and hardware
NUVI 7xx - more 30 sec (due initial loading map every times - long green stripe)
When I changed device for other series there was 1-2 minute process sometime.
