Moving Saved File

 

I currently have a Nuvi 3597 and am considering moving to a DriveSmart 61LMT. Can the "saved" file be moved directly from one to the other or are they in different formats? Any insight would be appreciated.

Yes you can. Several methods that can be used. Here is one from one of our members http://www.poi-factory.com/node/36164 . Garmin Express can also be used see https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=GVuNLr5hDf3NezcXCkPFL8...

Advantages?

My question is oblique to your inquiry, and just for my interest. I'm a 3597 user myself, and mostly very happy with it. What do you expect the primary advantages of the 61LMT to be over the 3597? Thanks.

Larger screen?

Some folks may want a screen larger than the 3597's 5" display. Except for that one advantage, I think the 3597 is hard to beat.

Excellent! Thanks for the help - it was much appreciated.

Wearing Out

I've had the 3597 since they first came out and actually, really like it. It does all I want it to do. The problem is that it's beginning to suffer some wear so, I thought it might be time for something newer.

I couldn't agree more. I've done quite a bit of research and from what I've read, the 3597 would be hard to beat. Even considered purchasing another New one but they're difficult to find. Plenty of 2589 - 2789's.

Nuvi 3597

Thanks again for your thoughts. After hearing from you and again and doing some comparisons of what's currently available, I decided that if I could find another 3597, that would be the best choice to purchase. I was able to find a very nice used 3597 on eBay which I purchased.

You're not alone ...

Both CraigW and I bought used 3597's to back up our existing 3597's. grin

I have a 2016 4 Runner with Entune. The 3597 is so much better. I always have the 3597 running and don't pay much attention to the Toyota system. I do get some strange looks when at the dealership!
