Garmin 765T Missing Trip Files Found

Learned about Archive files in blog here. sequentially numbered GPX files in 765T's Garmin/Archive folder. Mapsource app no longer around. In Garmin folder there is a GPX file named Current. Rename that to Orig-Current. Copy a GPX file from Archive to Garmin folder. Rename copied file to Current. Go to Base Camp(BC) App.

3790 Freezing, then Going Black

My faithful Nuvi 3790 has started freezing, and often when trying to get it to unfreeze will suddenly go black (as if turned off).

It can be extremely difficult to get back, but sometimes if I double-click the on/off button the unit will go to the screen that instructs me to click twice to unlock the unit, and then it will operate normally until the next freeze-up.


3590LMT and SD card

Recently purchased a Garmin 3590LMT to replace my 885T.

This model accepts a 32GB micro-sd card.
I intend to have Europe maps loaded onto it.

Two questions:
1. Is it recommended to buy a "Class 10" micro-sd card?

2. I read that buying anything over 8GB was not recommended and that the larger 16GB+ micro-sd cards would actually slow the device down.

Is there any truth to that?

Nuvi 67LM

Just bought a second 67LM, it was a Birthday present for my Son. So everyone in my Family as a Nuvi. It also keeps the rugrats from borrowing my Nuvi! But I also maintain all the devices, yay

Garmin quality and feature differences.

Well, I am getting the urge to upgrade again.

What I can't figure is the differences between the "two-digit" Nuvis and the four.

Is one a better quality of the the other?

I am seriously considering going to 6" or 7". I am not sure at that point the one inch will matter, since I am coming from a 5".

Why the two "brands" within Garmin?

RV GPS is 760 top of the line or something new on the way

Had it with Magellan, just returned my new 9490 as it wouldn't pick up satellites. Do you know if Garmin 760 is top of the line RV GPS or is something new on the way??

Is Four Square updated with Map Updates or is that a separate Down Load................

Long time, but long inactive member has a trip log question - Nuvi 2595LMT

I'm planning a cross country trip and would like to leave my Nuvi 2595LMT running so I can record the entire trip, both ways, in real time. I will not have the ability to save out the archived data points for the log until my return.

Backing up New Nuvi

Ok I backed up the files on my Nuvi 52 to my Win 7 laptop. Now what? I mean if I need to reinstall the files back to the Nuvi how do I go about it?
Please be sure to form your answers into a step by step for this Nuvi newbe.

Wrong BMP showing for some ESSO outlets

I've noticed that for some ESSO outlets in the Ottawa area the Canadian Tire BMP shows on the map vice the ESSO one. I've checked the GPX file but cannot find any reference to BMPs. Any suggestions?

Nuvi 2639LMT Saved Places

Hey --

Compared to my previous 755T, the new design doesn't let me separate my saved places info categories.

I personally don't like it. Do you?

Modifying The Garmin Nuvi 500

I still have a Garmin Nuvi 500 in one of my vehicle. It has a very slow processor and seems to take forever when looking for POIs. By any chance, has anybody here ever tried modifying their Garmin to a newer, faster processor? My guess is that the effort wouldn't be worth it, but I thought that I would ask anyway.

Garmin 2017.10 voice command error?

Updated on April 19, suddenly, voice command shuts device down as soon as you ask it to do anything. Can post a video showing what it's doing if necessary. 4 days ago, on 2016.30, never had an issue.

Map Updates

I took a trip to Atlanta this week and my trusty GPS seemed confused. Leaving the airport it showed me driving where there were no roads and all in all it was a bit confused. I soon realized that I have not been diligent about map updates and they have altered the roads and routes around the airport significantly.

Garmin 3490 Froze During Navigation

So I am currently travelling around the country on vacation and I have been using the Garmin 3490 extensively and it's been great but for the first time in four years it froze in the middle of navigation. It showed an exit to get off at and after I did, it stayed on that screen for at least a mile later. I tried voice command and touching the screen but nothing.

Write down your serial number and contact Garmin if GPS is stolen

Garmin folks, I recently had several items taken from my car, including a Nuvi. I filed a police report and gave them the model and SN. I also called Garmin support and let them know it was stolen. They can't track a GPS but they listed it as stolen in their system and disabled any map or software updates. After 2 weeks, the police called and they recovered my Nuvi.

Battery for Nuvi 2598LMT.

I looked at Ebay for a battery for my Nuvi 2598LMT but had no luck but found some for the Nuvi 2597LMT. Can I use this one for my 2598LMT?
Thank you.
