Garmin 2360 Satellite screen

Hi,
Just bought a refurbished 2360 and I was trying to get to the screen that shows the satellites that it is connected to. I know with my 1300 you just hold the left corner of the screen and it shows you but the 2360 is not doing that. Is that not an option on the 2360?

Thanks,
Dave

2699 POIs - Red Light voice warning not working

The other half just got a refurb 2699 to replace her 780. I installed the latest firmware and maps then added her huge list of POIs including the red light ones and the matching voice file.

For some reason she gets the BOING warning but not the voice warning.

Removed all the POIs and reinstalled same result.

Nuvi 205W, Broken Graphics. ( Interface)

Hello, i have a problem with an unit, its an 205W, the problem is that when you are navigating through the interface, the "graphics" or "buttons" start disappearing, glitching ( they start breaking in half, and some kind of " noise" starts appearing on the screen).

Its not the screen, this is an interface issue, or bug. How can i fix it? And i dont have a backup. Thanks in advance.

Intermediate VIA Waypoints not automatically sequencing during active trip with multiple waypoints

Hello,

I am learning to make technical routes using basecamp and Harley Rider for motorcycling. I want to build solid routes that will not change during transfer to devices and will work as expected so that I can enjoy the passing scenery rather than be distracted by the GPS recalculating my route unexpectedly.

Garmin Rino 650 GPS Radio

I have been interested in the Garmin Rino GPS radio since I first heard about them. I bought a pair at Cabelas a couple of days ago and decided to give them a try. I topped off the batteries for both of them, selected a GMRS channel and PL Code. I also made sure that each one had selected 5 watts.

What did I do wrong? (GPS recalculated the itinerary)

Hello all,

My old Nuvi 1490LMT just gave up on me right before my vacations so I bought an 58LMT to replace it. I had some itiniraries that I had prepared using Garmin Basecamp which I uploaded to the new device, so far so good.

Help with Map File

I have an old Street Pilot I3 that I use on my motorcycle and it worked just fine. It has a 2 GB micro SD card and I was trying to download some custom POI's. I believe I inadvertently erased on the folders/files on the micro sd card and it appears I have rendered the whole unit useless. Under food, hotels and more it only has custom points.

Garmin Drive Assist thinks rest stops are me crashing...

Got a nice new garmin drive assist. I have the Rest Areas combined poi-factory file and have an alert to sound 2 miles out for me to get into the right lane if I decide I need a break. However, every time the alert chimes, my garmin thinks that I've suffered an "event" and the dash cam footage automatically saves.

Repeating voice guidance with Garmin nuvi 57?

Is there any way to have a Garmin nuvi 57 (or similar models) repeat a spoken voice instruction, in the event I didn't hear it or fully understand it?

I checked the Garmin FAQ, and tried searching these forums, but did not find an answer.

Thanks!

How do you adjust the alert distance for Speed and RLC cameras Plus additional questions

I have a Garmin NAV 5 which is the same as a Nuvi665 with BMW files already loaded.
How do I confirm my RLC and Speed camera POI's are loaded?
How do I change the distance and speed alert for the POIs
How does the alert function, Is it on the map? Separate Icon? I know I can set the tone that is all I saw for adjustments.

Nuvi anomaly(ies)

Had an interesting weekend with my 2597. Planned a last minute road trip to Boston from Ottawa, ON, so went about setting up a route on the device, however, could not choose anything in Boston (or Mass). Found what I wanted under cities, selected GO, but it took a long time to calculate the route; ended up being an additional 2000km, taking me to northern Quebec, Maine and New Hanpshire.

GE 4.1.26 Mac

Just updated Garmin Express to 4.1.26 for OS X. Downloaded when I opened GE today. No problems encountered.

Nuvi 2598: " Up Ahead" & Rest Areas

I particularly like the Up Ahead feature in my 2598. Initially, it worked fine. After a while, the Rest Areas feature stopped working. The other selections (ie: gas stations and restaurants) do work and continuously display changing distances. Rest Areas displays nothing. When clicked, no rest areas populate the screen.

Garmin Express

Garmin Express 4.1.26 is out ,seems to be set up different? Maybe it is just my PC.

Install map on SD card

Just tried to install 2017.2 on an SD card, however, neither Garmin Express or MapUpdater recognize the card.

Had no trouble formatting or copying necessary files from my 855.

I've done this many times before, however first time with Win10.

Nuvicam software 3.30 is out today

Today, I got email from Garmin informing me that Nuvicam software version 3.30 has fixed the iphone 6 Bluetooth connectivity issues. When I powered on my Nuvicam, I saw the message for software update. This was regarding my ticket opened with them for a year.

Updated the software but they fixed bluetooth issue in the previous release 3.20. So not sure what they did in this update?
