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.

FAQ: Garmin Nav Systems
Garmin Express 184.108.40.206 is available for download. No issues installing it.
As of 01 Dec 2022, all my devices are showing that a new time zone map is available.
Just bought a Drivesmart 86 on a Black Friday sale, and I'm having trouble with Photolive on the map while driving. When enable it, I gets a caption "No cameras ahead on this road". I can tap on "find cameras" and it will find cameras, I can view them, save as a favorite, etc but I can't view them on the map even if I have a route set.
Is it advisable to update Map install to the latest version? I may be wrong but i thought there was something about installing maps that would not work with the latest version.
I saw a member name that I didn't recognize so I clicked on him (her?). His Factory id number is 400037. 400037! This place is awesome.
I am considering upgrading our Garmin DriveSmart 60's. One feature of the 60 that I really like is its ability to change to Portrait or Vertical orientation.
I downloaded the Garmin DriveSmart 66/76/86 Owners Manual and this is what it says:
Select Settings > Display.
Allows you to set the display to portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal).
Here me out please, I bought a 12 year old truck that has a special mount drawer on the dashboard that has a Nuvi 750. The car was imported USA to Canada. So the maps had old data and home address. Excitedly I performed a master reset and everything was gone. I started getting acquiring satellite with a "?" On the anchor.
I somehow managed to delete the vehicles I had installed on my Zumo XT and I've been trying to find them again. I thought there were more vehicles installed as default than appeared after I reset my device.
Can anyone tell me what vehicles appear installed on their Zumo?
Any motorcycle srf files gratefully accepted.
I had an interesting incident when updating one of my GPSr's via WiFi recently. It's not a common occurrence and is mostly my fault but I thought others should be aware of the potential problem.
I have a Drivesmart 65 and normally do map updates via WiFi. I leave the GPS in it's mount and do it with the vehicle in the driveway where it is in range of my home router.
I had someone break into my Tahoe and steal my sdcard but not the actual unit. I was puzzled because the base is hard mounted but you can pull the face off, unplug and it's yours less the wire and mount. I'm still scratching my head about it.
Recently, I have noticed a change the behavior of my old trusted 3597. I have been leaving it on my car and always with it plugged to the cigarette lighter through the Gramin HD traffic receiver power cable that came with the 3597.
The 3597 used to power up as follows when I start the car:
Power up manually or when I start the car:
1. Screen shows GARMIN logo, loading maps.
I have 2 Lifetime Updates free for my 2 GPS..Can just update 1 and somehow transfer the map to my other device since both are free lifetime updates. My data is pretty crappy out in the country side and I have to go to big city to update..
I ran into an error and couldn't find anything in the topics that matched my issue. Sorry for the long post...
I currently use two RV890's and I normally back one up when I add favorites and then transfer the favorites to the other 890.
When I attempted to backup today, it starts the backup and then fails after about 25% and says "there was an error backing up your favorites."
I have the Drivesmart 55. I was in Best Buy the other day and was playing around with the Drivesmart 86. It seems (besides the main Where To & Map screen that changed graphics) that the voice command (OK Garmin) no longer has a LIST of commands from the x5 > x6 series.
My wife uses a Nuvi 3590LMT for travel.
I have noticed that the screen appears to be going bad.... sort of delaminating or something. I am sure it won't be cheap to repair it, so am looking for a used one, or a newer model thag is comparable to the 3590.
Any suggestions on what to replace it with?
GE v7.15.2 for Windows was sometime yesterday after thread started. Mac v7.15.0 was also released 6 days ago as well.
If you would like to update to the latest version, please visit “About” within the Settings of the Express application and select “Check for Updates to Express.”
I would like to alert the members that there is a new release for those that have Navigation in their Hondas. Map 2023 just released 2 days ago. I installed it in my 2018 Honda CR-V Touring this morning. 15 minutes to D/L to computer and 16 minutes to D/L to car. Probably won't be driving it for a few days, so will be commenting then.
Interesting article at https://hackaday.com/2022/10/30/garmin-hud-got-discontinued-.... I applaud the efforts of the individual in keeping the device functional.
