Firmware Update 4.80

 

With the latest update, I am now getting the annoying warning message every time the unit turns on. Before the update, the unit would turn on and go right to the main page. Is there any way to turn off the warning? Anyone else noticed the same thing happening?

Yes, someone else commented about it, and I'm seeing it on my 2597 also.

Depends on the unit, I guess. It just changed with 4.80 on my 2597.

I don't know of a way to turn it off

Yes, the nag screen started showing up at every power on within the last 2 software updates depending on which model you have. I've looked through all the options in the menus I can find and didn't spot a way to disable it.

There isn't any way.

There isn't any way. Apparently some lawyer stumbled across it and made them bring it back.

I'm Seeing it Too

Yes, I am also seeing it, and it really is annoying.

3760

I have a 3760 and it has always had the warning screen?

Did I miss something?

I can't remember when the warning screen was not on my 2597. It stays on for about 10 seconds then goes off. I have update 4.80.

For a while the legal Sven

For a while the legal screen would only show when started cold. If it was only sleep the legal page didn't show.

WHAT DOES THE

Warning screen looks like.

I see

It is coming out of sleep mode that you are talking about. That is a feature I avoid. I find that is a good way to get a low or dead battery if you forget it is in sleep mode.

I've spent a lot

of time in the car today and am just noticing my 3597 no longer displays 3D terrain. I've checked the various settings and they look OK. I did notice with this newest map download that the two maps I have installed are the 2015.40 ALL and 2015.40 3D. Wasn't one of these maps previously labeled DEM ?

Thanks.

Map Updater?

Did you use Garmin Map Updater for the map update? There is a known issue with MapUpdater deleting or misnaming the GMAPDEM.IMG file. It is unlikely that Garmin will fix this problem with MapUpdater.

If you have a backup, you can copy the previous version of GMAPDEM.iMG back into the .system folder. Otherwise reinstall the map with Garmin Express to fix the problem.

You can also look for a misnamed (orphaned) img file with a size of ~594 MB in your .system folder. If you find it, try renaming that file to GMAPDEM.IMG.

Alan,

I did use MapUpdater...had trouble with GE that day.

I'll go ahead and attempt to re-install with GE this afternoon.

Thanks! You're the best !!

The nuvi 3597 with the current 2015.40 (and previous) maps should show in myMaps (and all should be checked):

-Cnna-Na-Dem North America DEM
-CN North America NT 2015.40 3D
-CN North America 2015.40 ALL

If you used GarminMapUpdater to update to the 2015.40 map, the update process most likely did one of two things:

1) it eliminated the gmapdem.img file, or
2) it left the file but with a different name.

If the DEM map was eliminated, you'll need to replace it with the gmapdem.img file from the backup you hopefully saved from a previous map update. Or reinstall the 2015.40 map using Garmin Express.

If the DEM map was renamed, look for a file called something like DxxxxxxxB.img that is 608,976KB (623,591,424 bytes) and rename it gmapdem.img.

The DEM map, along with the other standard map update maps will be found in your 3597's .system folder. Look for the .img files.

If this occurred without using GarminMapUpdater, let us know since as far as we know, Garmin Express does not result in the loss of the DEM map.

Gmapdem

Take a quick look for that orphaned file in your .system folder. It may be there and just need renaming. The exact file size is 623,591,424 bytes. No other .img file will have that exact size, so you can safely rename it if you find it.

Guys, thanks!

The device is sync-ed with GE right now. I'll check this out when it's done.

I'll look for all three maps...I only see two right now.

I was so excited about demo-ing the 3597 when I first go it that I don't think I did a backup. Very un-characteristic of me !!

Thanks!!

Great!

Glad you got it sorted out uber360. You may still want to look for that orphaned .img file and delete it if you find it. No need to waste storage space with it now that you have recovered the gmapdem.img file.

I do see two files:

one is called D2248xxxxB.img 10/20/14
the other is called gmapdem.img 3/28/15

Both show as 608,976KB.

Does is matter which I delete?

(2) Nuvi 1450LMT + 3597LMTHD + 2557LMT + DS61LMT-S Boston MA

Yes, it matters.

Keep the gmapdem.img file. Copy the D2248xxxxB.img file off to your computer (as a backup), then delete it from your nuvi.

Will do, Alan.

I guess I should back up the device this afternoon while I've got few minutes.

Thanks you!

One change I noticed was

One change I noticed was prior to latest update, it would automatically provide commute time to the office and home in the morning and afternoon, respectively. This is without programming the navigation to either places, just estimates on the screen.

Now it does not do it and I miss it.

Did you turn Traffic Trnds

Did you turn Traffic Trends off?

Thanks for the information.

Thanks for the information. Luckily, mine works, but I now have information should something happen.
