The unit I received had a car charger,update to current maps good for ninety days I believe. And a full subscription for 2 years to the google service,which is awesome by the way. My google services had the original expire date from the first purchaser,but a note through garmins website when I registered the product got me a complete subscription the following day.

just call the customer service of Garmin and tell them that you bought a refurbished GPS and that you need the 2 year nuvi service. They will take GPS's serial number and add 2 years to it in their system.

I, too, bought a refurbished 1690 and noticed that when I activated the nuLink the expiration was less than two years away. I called Garmin and, I think provided some kind of proof of purchase over the phone, and they reset the 1690 for the full two years. It wasn't a problem. By the way, great feature is the ability to send addresses to your unit from your computer using google maps. Just type in the address, a few clicks, and it's wirelessly sent to the machine . . . Good luck, Bob B.

Question

Is this device WAAS compatible?

Best Buy's site also has this refurbished Garmin but that site's specifications state that this unit's GPS receivers can access WAAS. The Garmin site doesn't confirm this information.

Only the nuvi 300 and 600 series have the WAAS feature. All other nuvi models contain a high-sensitive GPS receiver that does not require the WAAS feature.

Garmin's POI Loader uses a CSV file with the following format for each POI: Longitude and latitude must appear in WGS84 decimal degrees format (ddd.ddddd; negative numbers indicate West and South).

Longitude, Latitude, Name, Comment

You can create .csv files using a text editor, MS Excel, or a similar program. Other mapping programs can be used to create custom POIs. For more information on Garmin's POI loader software please visit http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/
