As from time to time there are questions about maps for different world regions I would like to start topic about getting them legally.
There are two links to places where you can get legal, free maps for Garmin GPS. They are routable, so can be used to drive when on vacations. Coverage can differ sometimes, as often there are non commercial projects created by users.
Please read these before posting questions to this forum area.
I need a new battery for my old 660, where would be the best place to order from online?
I got a new 2595LMT. Works great.
I have one issue though. I have the Portable Friction Mount. This unit does not have the anything in the back to attach on the friction mount.
Did others get this along with the unit? Should i contact Garmin?
When I go in to set the GPS current time via "Settings / Units & Time / Current Time", the "Automatic" checkbox below it is always not clickable. Does anyone who owns this unit have the same issue?
How long should the battery life for a Nuvi 2300 be? I seem to only get about 2 hours.
My Zumo 550 has started to time out while acquiring satellites sometimes it takes 2 or 3 tries to boot.
I am pretty new to Garmin. Could someone please tell me the difference between these programs:
1. Garmin Express
2. Garmin Lifetime Updater
6. Web Updater
8. Any other similar programs.
I just got a micro sd card for my Garmin 1450LMT. I am going to put the 2014.10 map on it when it comes out here. I read that if no maps are found on the internal storage, newer models will check the SD card, but older models will brick, requiring servise by Garmin.
Last year I found a post that outlined a procedure to update to the computer then move the file to the gps. I didn't write down the post and the info, now I want to update to the latest version.
Can someone post the procedure?? Thanks,

Has anyone ever sent their GPS nuvi out for a tune-up?
Mine has been acting funny,and I really don't whant to replace it. so,for 30$ bucks a company says the can clean it up and give it new life.
Basecamp (and Mapsource) has nice Waypoint/POI symbols and the symbols were compatible. The new 3597LMTHD has a new symbol set which is not nearly as nice...but that's not the problem.
I have CN on my nuvi and OSM on my SD card on my 855. Under Tools/Settings/Map/Map Info, both are checked. How does the nuvi handle both files? I've noticed that with both checked, it seems to favour the CN map.
I just got the 2595 today, all is well so far. I have installed a MicroSD stick, which the the computer sees after plugging in the GPS but not under the Garmin directory tree. The GPS won't show it when unplugged and running. Basic question though...is the SD only for maps or might I be able to use it for Audible books and MP3s like I did on the 660? Thanks. martin
I noticed that the ECO feature is a little strange as follows....
When doing a steady speed, it seems to show 'green'
when you let up on the gas (going downhill) it does not always show an eco desirable advantage (increase mpg) and when going uphill at a constant speed it does not show a less-desirable mpg.
Starting this forum topic for members to post any tips or details on how to start a feature on these series Nuvis.Or any question you may have to other users.
Last Saturday I attended a rocket launch. The friend who invited me launched a quite substantial craft, which on the second launch reached a maximum speed of 583 mph, and height of 8563 feet AGL, as transmitted by an onboard GPS module which also gave the location of ground impact.
Hello, I bought the 2797 LMT over the weekend. I added my work address as a favorite, so I can easily route to the office every day and get the traffic updates. When I added it, it automatically showed up as a heart-shaped icon. Since a "heart" is not something I necessarily associate with work, can anyone tell me if there is a way to change this?
I recently received my nüvi 3597LMTHD, and I installed Smartlink for the iPhone 5. I paired the devices, and Smartlink asked if I wanted to buy Live Traffic for $19.99. Any idea why I would buy Live Traffic via Smartlink when the 3597 already provides HD traffic? Is there any difference between the Smartlink version and the version that comes preinstalled on the unit?
