My Kenwood/Garmin is a DNX7180, and can
be updated while the van is in motion. But I had to go into the Garmin setup screen to manually change that from the factory default, and I did it so long ago that I don't recall exactly what I had to change. I don't normally
futz with the GPS while the vehicle is in motion, but if I have to activate the Detour function to find an alternate route, it's nice to be able to do it while the vehicle is in motion because the reason for the detour can also be the reason there's no place to stop and play with the GPS.
Besides, it's silly to be forced to stop just so that a front-seat passenger
can do the trip planning on the GPS.
There's no guarantee that settings in newer units can be manually reset the way my DNX7180 was, but it's worth a try.
