2017.30 Update Time

During the installation of map update 2017.30 on my Nuvi 2460LMT, I was required to install an SD card.

GE recognized the card and the update completed without problems.

The lasts update to 2017.20 required 63 minutes to complete the update, however this update to 2017.30 required 3 hours and 50 minutes.

Garmin min. speed Proximity Alerts

Hello, I'm having a question regarding the proximity alert function of the Garmin Nuvi (and Oregon) models. I programmed custom points of interests for road culverts to warn public works mower operators of culverts that are not visible and to prevent damage to both equipment and infrastructure.

CN EU 2017.30

CN EU 2017.30 was released by Garmin yesterday, but there was an issue initially downloading for those with the full EU map installed, which now breaches the FAT32 4Gb limit. To cope Garmin now split the map into two, CN EU North and CN EU South, but Express was only installing the North part. That issue is now resolved.

3597 weather no longer available?

I just noticed that the weather part of the 3597 no longer will still show the temperature in the data screen but the separate weather feature is now gone...did I miss something or is the last update corrupted?

TIA, Ted

Capacitive screens yes or no

I’m considering whether to replace my almost new nuvi 52lm. I have been looking at 58LM or the 2539lmt,2589. The 58 has all the features that I like: school zone speed, lane guidance (for exits) real directions (turn left at the gas station)direct access and 4 square. The 2539 & 2589 have most of those features. My question is the 2539 & 2589 have capacitive screens.

Complains on nuvi 3590 and impression on Drive 60 (and questions)

Had used nuvi 3590LM for 2-3 years. Like the unit, particularly its capacitive screen, charmingly sensitive. But the socket and/or power cable have been really annoying for the past year. Whenever I plug in, the unit senses that (as the screen lights up), but just continue to show warnings of no charging power (as the battery icon indicates, not in a charging mode).

I am getting ready to download the latest map to my Garmins. I hope I don't run into any problems.

Worked perfectly! We were able to get around everywhere and every POI we needed from attractions to grocery stores was on the map data.

Just wondering... (Voice Preferences)

...what type of voices does everyone use? Do men prefer women voices and women prefer men? Or, does it really matter? How about accents? I was just pondering on this last night and thought I would throw out the question and see what transpires.
