Will Two Different Garmins, Using The Same Maps And Settings, Use The Same Route?

I have a Garmin Nuvi 350, 360, and 500. They all are using the same current City Navigator maps. They all have the same settings. However, when I select the same destination, they don't always select the same route. Has anybody else here noticed that same thing?

Evidence of a "Trained Garmin"

I'm posting this under a separate thread.

I read the thread about 'Trained Garmin' and at that time never heard or saw anything about that.....

Yesterday, we got in car and plugged in 2689. Hit Accept, then View Map...... THAT IS ALL... We did NOT select any router or hit any other keys....
We were headed to the Rec Center, as we do quite often....

2689LMT That we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

My Mapsource has Gone Blind

I'm starting to use Basecamp, but I still like Mapsource. However, my Mapsource program no longer shows the installed Garmin CNNA maps in the map selection menu bar. It's done it for years but has suddenly decided to go blind. Basecamp shows them with no problem in it's map selection menu bar.

Can I train My Garmin

Most of the members who have been on POI Factory for a while have read this in the past.

For new members or anyone who may have missed it. Garmin says you can train your device. As for all things certain limitations are there.A reset of the GPS most likely would remove all the data it has learned.

Can I train my Garmin to provide better estimated times of arrival (ETA)?

Traffic info flawed sometimes on NuviCam

Hello Friends,

I am not sure how many members in this forum own NuviCam. Secondly, how many are using NuviCam with Smart Link app for traffic.

Install city navigator Europe NT to computer

I have downloaded city navigator Europe NT from Garmin and it installed on my Nuvi 1490. I can only access the maps on this install if I have the unit plugged into the computer. Is there a way to install the map on the computer and not have to have the unit plugged into the computer?

All messed up (No unlocked maps)

After doing a hard reset I tried to use Garmin Xpress. It gives me an error and must close. Now what? My internal card is just about full, how do I start from scratch?

Map install says "No unlocked maps were found for this device."

When I say messed u...I screwed up my back up and it wants to skip files. So how do I do day one?

Black out NUVI 2595

Yesterday all was good. Today the NUVI just started shutting off. Turn it back on and goes through the Logo, load maps, and if I hit the acceptance button shutsw off. If I leave it the route continues for a while then shuts off again. Time for a hard reset?
Any ideas what's happening?

New Maps Update

I have a Garmin Nuvi 2699 LMTHD. When I updated the maps in early January 2016 it sometimes now will show the opposite direction and tell me to turn opposite of the way I should go and turn.This usually happens when I first put in the search and it calculates. Has anyone else had this problem. Didn't seem to do it before the update. Any ideas?

Why do I want POI files? (Zumo 590)

when my Zumo 590 has an "up ahead" feature?
Apologies if that sounded rude, it wasn't meant to. It's just the short cut of the question and I'm new to POI.
