Road Closures & Detours With Garmin Traffic

I am still getting a feel for the Garmin Traffic function. If a road will be closed for say a week, or more, does that information make it to Garmin for routing purposes?

Garmin Express not communicating with Garmin servers

I am having problems with Garmin Express including the latest version to check updates for my devices. I had same issues last week in Edmonton on my cousin's PC. So it is not my laptop.

Whenever I try to check updates for my devices, most of the time I am getting red color bar at the top with the message, " X Sorry, we're having problems communicating with our servers".

Updater 3.3.4 Not Finding Flash Drive

I'm trying to update my Nuvi 650. My procedure has been to use a flash drive containing only a Garmin directory with GarminDevice.xml in it. I pull this file from the Nuvi so it is from the last update. I've done this several times, with the last time about a year ago. Updater will find the drive and d/l the needed files for NA, at least it always has.

765T Issues

Anyone else with a 765T past or current have issues with the unit staying powered on? Mine will power up, get through the load screen just fine then gets to the main "where to" screen then passes out, goes dark. It powers itself off and won't stay on for more than 15 seconds. I have tried to contact Garmin about it but they aren't much help.

Garmin Express Updated

version is out

delete files?

When I plug my Garmin 855 into my laptop it automatically starts the Garmin Express program. In this program there is a Device storage tab that tells me my device memory is 95% full. Is there a way to delete unused files from the internal storage? How can I tell which files to delete? Do I need to delete files from the internal memory if I use a memory card?

Garmin Express: How to Get Basecamp to See New Maps

I finally got over my fear of using Garmin Express and I installed ver. last night and downloaded 2015.4 to my NUVI2555LMT without a hitch.

In the past, when I used Map Updater, I had the option of loading the maps to my computer, my device or both. I always used Both. That allowed me to have the map available for use with Basecamp.


Clearwater Traffic

Does anyone know if the Clearwater traffic subscription is still operational?

Charge for 1450

How can you tell if your GPS is being charged when hooked up to a computer? It shows the picture of a GPS hooked up to a computer. I know if I am using it that will take a long time to charge but I'm not using the unit while plugged in. Has been plugged in for a couple of hours and when I disconnect, it's still at 2 bars.

Garmin 2797 custom POI alerts

Just got this huge GPS and all seems well (except for Herculean effort required to insert ball in socket and user manual that fails to show where the microSD card goes).

HOWEVER ... My trust POI collection seems to have transferred over fine. My icons for speed and red-light cameras are there. But the proximity alert is the Garmin bong, not my carefully curated wisecracks.

Map Updater That Deletes Or Renames Incorrectly The Digital Elevation Map

Member CraigW wrote the following FAQ warning us all that when using the Map Updater program it may either delete or rename incorrectly the DEM map file in the process.

Being a Map Updater fan & for having used it many times in the past, I will be calling Garmin support and advising them of this bug and do hope it'll be fixed for the 2016.10 release.

A Garmin "feature" That I Miss

With my other Garmins, if I wanted to located all POIs near a location, I would enter a destination, then do a search near destination, BUT leave it blank when I did the search. That would find a number of POIs near my destination. I found that to be quite handy. On my Nuvi 3597, however, I have been unable to find a way to do that.

Bluetooth issues on Nuvicam

I picked up Nuvicam few days ago and ran into bluetooth issues with iPhone 6. I have heard it was a known issue with iPhone 6 or IOS 8.x.
I connected with my iPhone 6 for few minutes then Messages pops up on Nuvi screen "IOS service disconnected... your iPhone got disconnected."

It is not stable at all. I will appreciate any feed back on this issue.

Camper 760 "Up Ahead" settings

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know if it is possible to alter the settings on the "up ahead" display, to something more useful, maybe one of my points of interest files.

Be great if you could.



Camper 760 Speed Boings

Hi Guys,

Is there any way I can stop my Camper 760 doing a BOING every time the speed limit changes (up or down).

I've looked through all (I think) of the settings but I can't stop it.

Any help would be appreciated
