So, had a very lengthy conversation with the support center at garmin. My issue with the propane warnings did not get resolved! They tried to convince me that the warning was normal and was part of the cautions and advisories design and also dependent on the road you are on.
Imagine if you will driving down an interstate somewhere in the Midwest where there are no restrictions on propane to be turned off (I.e. a tunnel) and having your gps flashing a warning every minute or so ď turn off propane ď for say 6-8 hours of driving without the ability to cancel the warning. Would this seem normal to you??
I asked to speak to a supervisor, he replied let me check with another tech. He came back saying thatís normal depending on the route your driving. I replied is it normal for the warning to come on even if the check box for the propane warning is unchecked or for that matter even if there is no route selected? After approximately an hour of debate he finally agreed there was a problem with the unit. At this point in time he was quite frazzled and apologetic, wanted to send me a new unit but couldnít figure out how to do it.
He asked where I purchased the unit, I replied Costco. His reply was to return the unit to Costco 😳 whaaat? I bought it about 35 days ago, keeping my fingers crossed.
Now after the lengthy conversation I sit back and begin to doubt myself, what if Iím missing something? So back in the car, wife driving we go for another drive. Have all the profile set up for my RV as if I were making a real trip. Barely make it to the highway I get my first warning, get on the highway drive about a kilometre another warning, this continues for another 15-20 kilometres. Not good, unchecked the box for the propane warning and canceled route, turn around to go home, no route selected, warnings continue. While she is driving I remove the propane tanks from the RV profile, all good now!😕 nice feature this propane warning, not!!
I believe the warning should come on prior to entering a tunnel or prior to boarding a ferry or some other geographic location where having propane tanks open would be prohibited.
Has anybody else experienced the same frustration? If you have an garmin RV 660 LMT and you have the latest software version 3.90 check to see if you get the same warnings? I believe after version 3.30 garmin inserted these 9 cautions and advisories. Long rant thanks for reading.
