Free space on a New Garmin drive Smart 60LM?

I just bought a new drive smart 60LM, downloaded the latest map 2018.20. After the map downloaded in Garmin Express I selected add map to computer. After over 3 hours the progress bar was stuck on 50%. Unplugged the Garmin, otherwise it would still be sitting at 50%. Everything works fine, but the Garmin is 98% full. Does this sound right?

Nuvi 765T

MapSource trick

First let me start by saying I do appreciate all the effort people take to create a POI file. Some must take up much of their spare time.
For that I thank you.

Nuvi 350 long gone, Nuvi 855LMT, Nuvi 2797LMT, 3790LMT passed on to my daughter. Using Windows 10


If you do a Google Search for 900 Crystal Tree Drive, Waynesville, NC 28785, and compare against 2018.20, you'll see what I'm talking about...
I've been waiting for 3 local mapping errors to be fixed by Garmin...

nuvi 680 Memory Card Question

Hi all:
I have both a nuvi 680 and a nuvi 3590. On the last map update, the full North America (NA) map was too large for my 3590, so I got a 16gb microsd card & installed it. Garmin Express (GE) was then happy to load the full map.

Map file names

Just found out that you could rename the map file names to any name you want without impacting functions.

This was tested on Garmin DriveLuxe 51 but it might work on other models.

Basecamp Issues

Just returned from a trip to Lynchburg, VA and the waypoints I had plotted using Basecamp were totally inaccurate. Hotel said that they also get many complaints from customers regarding Garmin GPS relating to their hotel.

The same happened to other waypoints plotted to Myrtle Beach, SC on same trip.

Anyone know what is going on?

Thought that 660 died.... NO... Not Yet!

Poor old Limping 660.... On way home from GSP Airport yesterday, and 660 froze... Pulled power, waited 15 sec, plugged in, and NOTHING!!!
Finally, disconnected the Charger, and went into USB port of car and IT LIVES!!!

When I got home, tried charger again.... Now OK....

Poor old 660!!! Goes on strike now and again, but refuses to die!!!

location of POI's on Garmin Dezl760

I've installed poi's before with no problem. I have a sim card installed to hold the Poi's. When I look at the card on the computer they are all there. But when I run the Dezl i can't find the custom POI's like it used to. I wonder if the last Garmin update change some thing or not. I used Garmins POI loader.
Thanks for any advise.
