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.

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. 3.2.22.0

Just released.
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?

DeLorme

I am currently a streets and Trips user however since they will no longer update it I am thinking about changing. I have heard of DeLorme but not real familiar. The big question I have is can I create routes with it and export to my Garmin RV760LMT as I do in Streets and Trips?

Any help appreciated

eBay cheap maps - what is the catch?

I have a Garmin 765T which I haven't really used for navigation for a while. I primarily use it a BT handsfree in my car. Once in a while it gives me the msg about updating maps.

Nuvi 855 biting the dust

Think my 855 is on the way out. Have recently been having issues with many intermittent 'reboots' while in use; unable to enter new destinations - tells me no space; unable to delete old destinations/routes. Backed unit up, did a hard reset, restored - poi's show back on the unit from PC, but not on the unit; typically have kept them on the SD - moved them to the unit, still no joy.

Some POI entries missing NUVI

I maintain a library of thousand of POIs and have been doing this for years with no problems. I just refreshed the device and some entries of one POI file do not show. I have erased the device and then loaded it with just the one POI file and it still show only about 50 entries of a 108 entry POI file. When running POI loader it says it loaded 108 entries but about half are missing.

Nuvi 3597 Power Down Issue

When I turn off the ignition in my pickup, my Nuvi 3597 displays a screen which says “Vehicle Has Been Turned Off” and starts the shutoff countdown even though there is still power to the unit. This differs from the usual “External power Has Been lost” screen which also initiates the shutoff countdown.
