As from time to time there are questions about maps for different world regions I would like to start topic about getting them legally.
There are two links to places where you can get legal, free maps for Garmin GPS. They are routable, so can be used to drive when on vacations. Coverage can differ sometimes, as often there are non commercial projects created by users.
Please read these before posting questions to this forum area.
Does anyone know if the favorites on a Chrysler/Jeep 430N system can be downloaded to a flash drive?
I finally got the voice alert to work on my 2460, I had to revert back to sox 14.0.1, did not work with the later versions. Thanks to all who tried to help, had me going nuts
Garmin has released firmware update 4.00 for the nuvi 2xx7 and 2xx8 and nuvi 35x7 and 35x8 models.
Changes made from version 3.80 to 4.00:
Enabled the Voice Command feature for Argentina.
Improved calculation for long routes.
Improved highway shields in Norway and the United States.
Fixed several map display issues.
Fixed several route calculation and recalculation issues.
I have been looking at the 3597 and the 2597 and don't really need all of the bells and whistles the 3597 has, but I have a couple of concerns about the 2597. The 2597 has the same display resolution that my 855 has and I'm wondering if that would be objectionable with the 5" screen? If so I would consider staying with the smaller screen.
I flew to Florida last week and I took my NUVI2555LMT on the plane with me.
First off, I was pleased to see that I was able to get satellite lock, for a reasonable portion of the trip, once we got to the planes normal altitude.
I purchase the pol factory red light alert not able to activate
I've noticed that the custom POI icons show up for a good many of the POI's I attempt to pull up; however, there are several that do not show the icon, but pull up as a specific restaurant or hotel. Is this an issue where the specific location in not listed in the text of the .csv or .gpx file? I haven't seen it pull up for any of my customs if I specify a custom poi from the category list.
I did some searching on the forum and turned up short. My apologies if this has been covered.
My new Garmin has this feature, and here in Florida no one goes the speed limit. You can't even be ticketed for going less than 5 over. I think it is a nice option, but I would like to set it at 10 over or turn it off.
Can this be done? My google searching suggests the answer is no.
I'm thinking about buying the 2495LMT from Costco. Can someone tell me if it has this feature:
Speed limit indicator (displays speed limit for most major roads in the U.S. and Europe,
According to Garmin's website, it says that it's not available on this model which is kind of odd.
Is there a way to import a GPX route file to the Garmin 2555LMT?
I tried moving one to the GPX directory in the Garmin,
but the Garmin didn't seem to know it was there?!?!
Your advice is appreciated.
OK, I know this is going to sound strange, but I have had my Garmin 2460LMT for several years now, and have been loading my own POI's to it since I first bought it. I noticed today when I loaded a custom POI for an upcoming trip that when I was checking the POI load, there were a few POI's that were not showing up in the loaded POI, but if I went to the actual POI on the PC, they were all there.
Hi: This is my first post here....
I just acquired a 3597 LMTHD and I think it's a gorgeous design, but I am a bit of a fumble fingers. So I am looking for some drop protection to keep the glass and metal frame from being damaged if the Nuvi slips from my fingers en route between the carry case and the dash mount.
Just found out you can have your own picture at start up. Right after the Garmin logo, you can have your own picture displayed while the maps are loading. Just pic one from the Image file. I re-sized to 480x232.
Or am I the last to know about this? LOL
Garmin doesn't support Red light cameras on the 3590LMT. I wonder if there is a reason that the most expensive GPS on the market (at the time they were released MSRP $429.00)doesn't support what almost everybody wants?
Hello, I am trying to find out how to limit access to the SD card on my 2557LMT to a specific period of time, 60 days. I believe this could be done as an addition to the string that identifies the sd card serial number and locks it to the unit. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance! Spacetrucker50
I just bought a nuvi 2545 in Germany and was told I could buy US and Mexio mapas for it.
Trying to buy the Mexico map online at GARMIN, I am told it is not compatible with my nuvi 2545 LM (!) because I it is only compatible with nuvi 2545 LMT or 2545 LT.
Does anybody happen to know what the pattern is currently for Garmin regarding announcing new products? Is it at shows like CES or completely separate from trade shows? Or does it depend on the product line? For example, are aviation products announced at Oshkosh and automobile navigators announced at a car show?
I currently have a Garmin 760 and I am looking to upgrade. I could use recommendations.
I want a large screen and lifetime maps, traffic isn't too important to me. I also use custom POIs.
Do any models have fast processors? If I ask my 760 for a Business within 25 - 50 miles it calculates for 5 minutes and then times out.
