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.

Garmin Glo With Newer Smart Devices

Does anyone have any experience with Garmin Glo while using apps like Viago, HERE, Waze or Garmin Streetpiliot Onboard on their smart device?

https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/oem/sensors-and-boards/glo-/...

I’m thinking of trying the product but at $99, it’s a lot to spend if there is little or no performance boost.

Backup Camera for Garmin

Garmin has offered a "20" backup camera for some time coupled with a 7 inch GPS. That's too big for me but they recently started offering a "30" backup camera which their website indicates will work with their GPSs as small as 4.3 inch (specific models). Reviews I can find for the 20 camera are generally positive but nothing yet on the 30.

2689 --- just added POI's (Including Sox.exe) Works... But where are they?

I'm successful in converting MP3's to WAV's, and uploaded our favorite POI's in the new 2689...

In 660 I could could search for them and display them, select them, and have them become a destination.....

Can I do this on the 2689??? I can't seem to find them in the menus...

Garmin Nuvi Rugged Case

Has anybody ever seen any rugged cases for the Garmin Nuvi 3597? I know that there are cases for traveling like this http://tinyurl.com/k5gxzn4 , but I am interested in one that would protect the GPS and allow it to be used at the same time.

custom POI multiple voice warnings

hi all...
I've installed the PGPSW speed cameras on my Zumo 390 and, after finally figuring out how to make the custom warnings work, it's giving multiple warnings of a camera and even when I've passed the camera.

Replacement for Nuvi 3790T? Does Garmin have any new flagship products coming.

My faithful Nuvi 3790T finally but the dust after 5 trouble-free years (touchscreen went belly-up).

I'm looking to replace it but I'm not liking the 2015 models they have so far. I don't like the cheap plastic construction and the non-powered mounts. I think the 3790 spoiled me.

How to Power a Nuvi 660 off of USB port (Run GPS, insead of PC Mode)

I borrowed two Garmin power supplies and tested the mini USB pinouts for conductivity between USB Mini Pins 4 & 5.

I Tested the following supplies and they boot the Nuvi 660 into GPS Mode instead of PC Mode:

Garmin AC Supply 362-000283-3 Boots 660 to GPS Mode. 2.0A
Pin4-5 Shorted.

Garmin DC Supply GTM-36 Boots 660 to GPS Mode. 2.1A
Pin 4-5 Shorted..

GPS units with rearview backup camera?

Well, I have not replaced my aging Garmin unit yet.
But I have been noticing some units with a backup camera.

I looked briefly and the units I found were seemingly intended for an RV, which makes sense, I used to have an RV and a backup camera was very helpful.

Call Button feature with Custom POI's loaded to the Chrysler Media Center 430N?

Has anyone found a way around this? The pre-loaded POIs do allow one to call the phone number via Bluetooth.

What 7" Garmin would you buy, and why?

Wife says maybe we should consider a new a New Garmin.

I'm not certain...

We'd want 7" unit... I would assume Lifetime Maps and Traffic...

What is your preferences?

(This does not mean I am giving up on 660)
