Free routable maps for Garmin

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.

Atlanta HOV Lanes

I'm planning a trip to Florida and the Atlanta HOV lanes, are a real plus.

There are 2 or 3 locations where the HOV Lanes leave the main part of I-75 and then reconnect a little farther along. I tried to create a POI file that would force my NUVI 2555 LMT to force the navigation onto these divergences.

I have 2015-3 loaded.


Which Garmin would you buy on Black Friday?

We need a new GPS. There should be some good deals on Friday. Which brick and mortar store has the best deal and most features on a Garmin GPS? Thank you in advance for your information.

lost voice recognition on 3790LMT

After I replaced the battery on my 3790LMT recently, I had a few oddities. (I accidentally hit the power button several times while doing the difficult opening of the case and dislodging of the old battery, so may have insulted the unit with some odd power cycles).

numi 2598 delete or manage saved / favorites POI's via PC

After adding a bunch of POI's as saved POI to the unit from a PC I would like to know if there is a way to selectively delete them using a PC.

The current.gpx file has all the saved POI's but deleting them from this file does not delete on the unit.

Any help would be apreciated

Nuvi 3590 vs 3597

Other than the general shape and the magnetic mount, does anyone know the difference between the 3590 and the 3597? I can get the 3590 cheaper but is there anything I would wish I had by not getting the 3597?

New GE Ver.

Good day.


I'm confused about the demise of the 3597!

I'm confused about the demise of the 3597!

Earlier posts claimed that the 3597 is being discontinued, but today I get an email from Garmin trying to sell me one for $329.99 (USD).

Are they just getting rid of inventory?
