This is my first post to the forum and I was unable to find a search function, so apologies if this question has already been asked.

I just bough the Garmin Smart Drive 61 LMT as an upgrade from my old Tom Tom. Initially, it looks and works OK, but there's a few niggling issues:

(1) I don't seem to be able to configure it to remain off when power is supplied via the USB. That means, every time I start the car, the GPS comes alive - it would be nice to tell it to stay off until I manually switch it back on. Yea, I could just unplug it, but this is such an obvious thing that there should be a way of disabling auto-power on.
(2) There doesn't seem a way to tell it to give me more warning when approaching a junction or turn - basically, it tells me a few feet before the event, which is way too short notice!

Is there either an advanced user's guide - the default one is next to useless, or a configurable properties file on the device I can tweak?
