Welcome to the site.
We usually recommend the following.
There is a "Learn" button in the upper right of this page next to "red light cameras" that takes you to a Getting Started page. It is worthwhile visiting this page.
To make navigation easy, most browsers provide the following option. When you want to follow a link - but still keep your current page open - you can hold down the "Ctrl" key as you left-click on a link. That action will open a new "Tab" in your browser up on the "Tab" bar. When you then left-click on that new "Tab", you will follow the link - leaving the "Tab" you are now reading open and available to click on and return here.
So, using the "Learn" link, you might try the "Ctrl" - left-click sequence and then return here. You can return by either "X-ing" out of the "Getting Started" page (using the "X" on the "Tab" itself) or just left-clicking on the "Tab" for the page you are on right now.
Note that the Learn Button will give you access to two valuable reference pages -
the "Index" to all of the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) and the Glossary of Terms and Links.
Since you are new here, I encourage you to go through a couple of the Tutorials.
The first link makes sure the settings on your computer are such that you can do more advanced POI loading.
The next link helps you make a backup of your GPS by attaching it to your computer. (NEVER do anything to your GPS until you have a backup). It also assures that you put your (newer) unit into a state where you can see all of the folders there.
Let us know how we can help you enjoy your GPS.
im using 3590lmthd for about a year with loaded cyclops red light cams , and its linked to my android getting weather traffic etc. I like it , i have no complains fast and good.
Welcome to the Factory!
I owned a 2798 briefly and loved the unit! The BC-20 backup camera and 7” screen are great features which I now can’t do without. The BC-20 camera is wireless and a snap to install.
Since I use the unit mainly with my pickup and trailer, I decided to return the 2798 and replace it with an RV760. The 760 looks identical to, and has all the great features of the 2798 with a few extras designed for larger vehicles.
I also have a Nuvi 3597, which like the 2798 and RV760, aren’t compatible with Garmin’s Cyclops safety camera feature. Instead, I use the red light and speed camera POI files available here at the Factory. The files are downloadable free if you’re a contributor. Arguably, they are more accurate than Garmin’s Cyclops database since they are updated constantly with field reports from POI Factory members.
Again, welcome aboard!
Is garmin ever going to allow the 25"" or 27"" units to run cyclops files
Thanks for the info.
What is involved with the installation of the camera?
