With regards to the safety camera feature on Garmin devices you can disable the safety camera feature by disabling this within the proximity alerts on the device. In addition to disabling the alerts Garmin have released a software update to maintain compliance with French law.

Question
Can you switch off all the gadgety stuff, bluetooth, voice activation etc. So that the battery life is extended.
I see in the comparison list between Nuvi 2595LM and the LM50 models that the 2595LM battery lasts for 2.5 hrs, the LM50 lasts for 4 hrs. So by turning off features listed above (and others) will this preserve/extend battery life?
I may use this on motorbike trips you eee.
Thanks.

If the nuvi is not holding the expected battery life then there may be a couple things that could be causing this. Below is a list of situations that could cause the battery to discharge quicker along with ways to extend the battery life.
Reason for faster discharge:
1. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight
2. Prolonged exposure to excessive heat
To maximize battery life of your nuvi, try some of the following procedures:
1. Adjust the brightness to a dimmer setting
2. Change backlight setting
3. Disable Bluetooth, if so equipped, when not in use
4. Limit the use of Extra Features such as: Audible Books, Bluetooth, or MP3s while using the internal battery
5. Turn GPS Receiver OFF when not in use
6. Use the Vehicle Power Cable when possible
After adjusting the settings the battery life should be longer.
To disable Bluetooth
1. Touch Tools1
2. Touch Settings
3. Touch Bluetooth
4. Touch the blue box under or next to Bluetooth2
5. Touch Disable
6. Touch OK
1Some devices do not require this step.
2Some devices may require you to touch the box next to Enable/Disable Bluetooth to insert a check mark.
There may be times when you would like to change the screen brightness on your device. Please follow the instructions below.
1. Touch Tools
Some devices skip this step
2. Touch Settings
3. Touch Display
4. Touch Brightness
5. Adjust the brightness level according to your preference

The system will continue to charge while plugged into a power source either at home or through a vehicle lighter socket without needing to be switched on. I would expect the unit to charge at a quicker rate whilst switched off.

The device will have a POI category for parking and this will give you all parking options available in a given area.
To locate parking on your nuvi please follow the steps below:

1. On the 'Main Menu' touch 'Where To?'
2. Touch Categories'
3. Scroll down and Touch the 'Parking' icon.

This will list all parking places in and around that area of location.
