In-Dash Garmin Nav Systems

Some in-dash infotainment systems use Garmin for navigation.

Custom POIs can sometimes be installed on these in-dash systems using Garmin's POI Loader software via a memory card or disk.

In other cases, custom POIs might require an alternative process or not be available.

Discussion threads for some makes/models are linked below.

Updated Custom Garmin Theme for DriveSmart Series

Hello everybody. It's been a long time since I've posted.
A long time ago I posted my custom Garmin theme that I created because I felt that none of the themes included with the device were very good.
The theme I created emphasizes better visibility. Colors have been changed and sharpened with the background, streets and borders are bigger, etc.

Has Anybody Here Ever Submitted Information To Garmin About Closed Roads?

As posted above, has anybody here ever submitted information to Garmin about closed roads? If so, did they update the information?

VPN seems to help Map Downloads

I have been using AT&T wireless for several years. I have noticed that large file downloads will start at a 300K and then drop down to 50K or 60K after a few minutes. My Garmin Express downloads have been over 12 hours with frequent timeouts. I recently installed a VPN. The download speed of 360K has been consistent throughout the download so far.

Garmin BC camera upgrade

Going to upgrade from the RV760 to the RV780. I have the BC20 installed in my truck camper. I will also purchase the BC30 for the new GPS. My understanding is the BC20 ONLY works with the RV760.
I'm wondering..... are the camera identical? Can I swap out just the wireless control boxes? That would be one less thing to mess with.

Thanks, Eric

Prices Dropping On Drive Series

So I see (for the 2nd time) prices dropping on the Drive Series. When I went to CES last year, they had nothing new for auto navigators and they said probably around spring there would be a refresh of units. Well spring came and went and nothing new so wondering (even though no CES this year), if they are finally going to replace this series soon.

Fatigue Warning (Need A Break)

My wife and I were on a road trip today. about 2 hours in I got a message on my Garmin that stated:

Need A Break?

Then it offered:



Rest Area

along the route.

Below that it states:

Stop Asking and Ask in 30 min.

I don't recall seeing that in the past. Is it new?

Info required (haven't used my Garmin 61 for a very long time)

I have not used my Garmin 61 for a very long time now and can not remember if you can just "drop" a GPX file into the micro card in the back and then access it direct from the front screen.

If not then can someone refresh me on how I get it into the Garmin.

Dell XPS 15 Solution For My 3597LM

Similar to a 2016 thread oddly located in the Rand McNally forum here, I found my 3597 would never go into any mode other than normal GPS operation, regardless whether plugged into one of my 2020-manufactured XPS 15's onboard USB connections or an attached dock which included additional USB 3 ports.
