Problems with 2018.10 download on my 2558

Others have reported as well so problem is not unique. When downloading update I get the red icon "There was a problem installing the update." Approx. 1/2 way complete then I get the message. Tried unplugging and restarting with same results?
Any ideas?

New map 2018.1O disapointments

There are still many "Road ahead" notices that skip over the next road (or several). Some improvements though.. one main road in my area is now properly identified as "next" where in the previous version it was skipped. This version skips over one of the main intersections in Edmonton (did in last version as well). Or.. it shows the next road as the same one you are currently driving on..

Hard reset?

How do I do a hard rest on my 350? with the update for some reason I'm showing part of the old map 2017 on my device, wanting to save space I'd like that removed it?

Unlocking In Basecamp For The First Time With WIN10

I just installed North America 2018.10 on my Nuvi 40 (succesfully) and installed it on my PC too. I did the same thing with 2017.30 and made a cursory attempt to unlock 2017.30 and gave up. I shouldn't have to point out that on WIN7 unlocking just worked.

I see Garmin has just released an update to their Garmin USA offline map application to 2.11.2 - says "We have further improved the stability of the app. Enjoy your drive!" I wonder what goodies are in store!

Just had my 3597LMTHD stolen last night :(

What a bummer, really upset at the moment...

Anyone know of a good sale for a replacement?

The Ogre

Trip Planner App / Nuvi

I have had numerous Garmin Zumo units. I now purchased a 2598 for my car. I enjoy creating custom routes on Basecamp for the scenery. When I used custom routes on the Zumo 550, I would just start the route and it would take me from point to point (via point or way point).

Garmin Express 5.1.1 for PC

And now it's 5.1.1 ...

Garmin began rolling out Garmin Express v5.1.1 for the PC on 1/17/2017. If you would like to upgrade to the latest version, Check for Updates to Express on the Settings page within the Express application. This version includes the following changes:

• Fixed an issue where Express could crash when attempting to add a device

Where there's a will ... there's a way ... Nuvi 2508LMT-D, 1490LMT, 1310, Montana 650T, Etrex 20

POI images

The default POI image seems to be a blue dot. I see there are a lot of images available but none (that I can find) that are 'dots" similar to the default but different colors. Can I make my own.. and how big is it?

How Many Garmin Friction Mounts Are There?

When I bought me first Garmin StreetPilot years ago, it came with a portable friction mount like this:

Then, somewhat more recently, I recall hearing that a newer style was out:

Now, on Ebay, I see this style:

Garmin models with integrated traffic receivers.

Does anyone have a list of Garmin models that have the traffic receiver built in (using the TA-20 power adapter as the antenna instead of using one of the GTM external power adapter/receivers)? I don't recall ever seeing such a list here or on the Garmin FAQs, and I think this could be a good item to add to the POI Factory FAQs.

GPS off by 100 feet?

Anyone ever run into an issue where their GPS is off by a few hundred feet? I was driving around the other day and I showed up about 100-200 feet due north of where I was.

What Garmin Smartwatches Are Compatible With The Garmin DriveLuxe 51 LMT-S?

I was looking at the Garmin website reading about the Garmin DriveLuxe 51 LMT-S. It states that is is compatible with Garmin smartwatches. Does anybody happen to know what Garmin smartwatches are compatible with it?

garmin 2689 (slow to pick up traffic info)

I recently received a 2689... I have been using a 2595--- my question has to do with traffic reception.... it seems that the 2689 is much slower to pick up traffic info???? and the power cord is different from the 2595... any experience?

Went to update to 5.1 and got 5.4 so I guess that's the latest!
