When GE is running in the back ground, will it make my computer run slow?

POI Loader won't convert audio files

Latest version of POI Loader has decided it doesn't like my audio files (neither MP3 nor WAV versions). All the audio files came from here on POI Factory.

BaseCamp and GPX files

For some reason my MapSource right now is slower than Molasses.
I tried to open some GPX files I have on my Desktop but I cannot find any way to load them into BaseCamp.

It's probably so easy but I can't see it.

Unclear about using MicroSD card in my GPS


I'm sorry if this question is in the wrong place (I've rarely used the Forums in the 4 years I've been a member here).

Garmin RINO 700 Series

Corrupt garmin img file after copy to SD card.

Hello all,

I have several img files which I want to put on a SD card (32GB) to use in my Oregon 600 Garmin device.


Why is it that when I hook up my DriveSmart 60 to Web updated that is states no updates available. When I use GE it shows and update. So, should I disregard Webupdater and start using GE?

I recently had a melt down on my PC (Windows 7) and now have Windows 10 installed.

Would anyone out there have a copy of the Mapsource install file that I could get?

Still prefer it to BaseCamp.

Backup trip in Garmin 2589LMT

Does anyone know if a planned trip in the Garmin 2589LMT using the "Apps" Trip Planner can be backed up so it can be transferred to another Garmin 2589LMT? If so how is it done?
Thanks, Gene

Improved software stability.

GPS Voices

Hey everyone
I was wondering if any of you know some other places to get GPS Voices...
I have gone to Pigtones I was just if there was any other ones out there.

Where to find Firmware Update Info?

Does Garmin or anyone publish a list of firmware changes?

It has been a couple of months since I last checked for updates for a Nuvi 2699 and it showed a firmware version of 8.3. After checking earlier today using Garmin Express, the most current version is 8.5. I was able to apply the update using Garmin Express without issue.

My Garmin issues re: exiting for no reason

Hi all,

3597 software update - FM Traffic

Today Garmin Express offered an update for my 3597LMTHD. It turned out to be a traffic update. The file downloaded was \.system\TrafficProviders.xml. This update may have been available for a while as I haven't checked for updates since the 2017.20 map came out.

2017.20 is out!

GE is showing updates to 2017.20 for all (not Montana) my GPS units.

Nuvi 2595 not functioning properly anymore

I've had this 2595 for a couple of years now and this past week it became unusable. It turns on and appears to function, but if I select an address and try to start a route it bogs down and becomes very unresponsive. After hitting the Go button, it takes a while (maybe a minute) to switch to the map view. Then once there, the calculation will very slowly increment but never seems to finish.

Transfering favorites, addresses etc. to a new GPS

Hello all,

My trusty 1490LMT has finally given up on me after 6 years of loyal services.

I will buy a new Garmin GPS (58LMT) and I'm wondering if it's possible to transfer all of my favorites from the old GPS to the new one.

I found this method while searching althought it appears to be an old post

Will this method work in my case?


HD traffic may be coming to Canada?

With the launch of HD radio stations in Canada early this year we may expect the lunch of HD traffic in Canada as well. I use Smartlink app for traffic which works great but still will be interesting to see HD traffic. I tried to test HD but it will stick to smartlink app only with the message "you need charging cable with a receiver". I am using Garmin charging cable with HD receiver.
