Garmin problem keeps updating traffic receiver
Thought I'd mention in case there's any significance. I did forget to mention also that it complains (about no traffic) if you try to power the unit through a normal mini USB cable (but I guess that's to be expected).
Tried what the other person said but no luck, within a few seconds of it being plugged in, it's nagging me to use the correct traffic cable.If the problem persists, then something is wrong with the programming or the electronics in the 2699.Don't know if Garmin's Support will help you with that.Try this: Turn off the 2699 by using the Power Button (not by disconnecting power). Even the above steps fail for me sometimes, but I haven't seen the message in a long time.If the socket for the 2699 is "Switched" then maybe all you will have to do is unplug the cord before turning the car on and plug it in after it is running.
