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.
Please check our Garmin FAQ section before posting questions to the Garmin forum area.

Have a Nuvi 52 with Base Map 5.01, Detailed Map dated 2017 and Software version 3.00.
Entered location name "Tullahoma" (located in TN, having a population of 24,494) and the GPS said... "No Matches Found". Tried using just the zip code 37388... and the same above results occurred.
My last GARMIN a 2689LMT has finally died. I am now totally only using a smartphone and Android-Auto.
I feel much better off. I have been using Google Maps and/or Waze almost exclusively for the past year, and only used the GARMIN in my 2nd car, now I'll be using my phone there also.
Based on this thread:
it seems time to create a list of Garmin GPS devices that offer Tunnel Mode.
What is Tunnel Mode? Here's an example (the left-hand device in the video):
Anyone know how Garmin Tunnel Mode works? I thought it might be Dead Reckoning, but my speed in the tunnel changed and the speedometer on the GPS unit did not. I have a Drive Assist 50 if that matters. Just curious how it worked.
I have been using my Garmin DriveLuxe 51 LMT-S for a few months now. What I really didn't give a whole lot to, when I bought it, is the Foursquare feature. I have noticed that sometimes when I search for something it seems to come from the regular Garmin source and other times it lists Foursquare.
Bluetooth connection from iphone still not stable with Nuvicam after almost three years. Even new version of Smart Link app for IOS has not fixed the issue. Sometimes it works for days and then all of a sudden it starts dropping connection. Then I have to go to Settings on Nuvi, disable Bluetooth and re-enable it to make it working again. Yesterday, it failed 5 times out of 10 times.
I am attempting to overlay a series of slightly shaded and transparent polygons built in Google Earth Pro (or any other method i can find) to represent geographic boundaries of Districts/Fire Zones for fire services.
Is there a way to create custom polygons on the map much like you see for parks, cemeteries, and golf courses? What I want to do is create habitat overlays for when I'm using it for bird watching
Model 265WT upgraded to map update 2019.10 without incident but "Recently found" list is partially Chinese (or similar) characters. Is a hard reset the only way to possibly fix the issue?
Currently in Mexico and have a question for someone who has the new map installed.
Could someone with this map version please see if there is a BRAND NEW bypass showing south of Guadalajara. It should go from Zapotlanejo southwest via Chapala and a small town Sta.Cecilia and then toward El Arsenal in the west.
Helping a buddy with a Zumo 350 install all of NA 2019.1 onto his device.
Got the NA Canada and Border states to go vai Express but Mapinstall 4.1.1. won't let me install the remainder to an SD card. Mapinstall is the current version.
My unit quit showing the % of grade when we are going up or down a grade......anybody else have that problem and if you did , how did you fix it?
I recently noticed a new feature on the Trip Information screen - a compass beside the direction text. However, the direction indicated by the compass is different from the text, other than for North and South, i.e. if the text reads Northwest, the compass shows Northeast
I recently found that GPS navigation doesn't work properly every time I drive to a particular area.
Does that mean GPS signals are being disrupted? I don't know if it's artificial or because of the nearby buildings. Can someone tell me what's going on?
is now available!
-Users can now add a Monterra to Express if there is a SD card inserted.
-For Approach S1 users, we fixed an issue that would not allow the user to change courses following an update.
-Helped address an incorrect cycle map part number being installed to the Fenix 5x for AU/NZ users.
-Other minor bug fixes and improvements.
My 255W started acting strangely about a month ago. When I connect it with the car power adapter, it acts like it's making a data connection to a computer. I tested it with another known-good Garmin car power adapter and it behaves the same way.
I'm looking for a outfit or person to replace a battery in my 3790LMT. I asked at @SHARCNETUSA (Twitter) but didn't receive a response.
I can't do it myself at this time.
Have you had RECENT experience with someone or an establishment who can do this for me?
My unit is working fine and has the most recent update (2 days ago.)
Can anyone recommend some sources for a factory refurb 2599 LMTHD unit?
