Garmin keeps updating traffic receiver

Garmin Traffic can give details about the situation, such as how many minutes of delay to expect and if there are any possible detours.

It can even confirm whether or not you are on the fastest route.

For the last few years, I’ve had a Garmin nuvi 1350LMT GPS.

It’s proven itself useful by allowing my wife to navigate to anywhere because she is shall we say “directionally challenged” and relied on printed maps to get her from point “A” to point “B”. Not to mention that I’ve used it to get around Toronto and various points in the province of Ontario as well. It not only started to display an error message that said “Accessory Not Supported” but the traffic function stopped working.

At this point you’re wondering why my wife and I wouldn’t use our respective phones for navigation. I’ve found that a phone works well if you’re willing to pay for the data charges related to downloading maps on the fly.

Though the advantage of that is that you tend to get up to date maps.

But I quickly found that this newer model has many improvements.

I had been using a 3790 LMT for about 18 months which I had enjoyed and didn't think the 3590 had much more to offer me.

Any GPS navigator can help you find the quickest route to your destination, but some higher-end models offer additional features that come in handy.

One such option is live traffic updates, which give you the ability to route around accidents and slowdowns before you are stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

I then found that it was the GPS itself that was the issue as I still had the same problem.

Since it was out of warranty, I decided to buy a replacement.
