Garmin 2597 starting intermittent

Since yesterday my 2597 only starts intermittently. I was using it most of the day, however after I picked my wife up from work, it wouldn't turn on. A few hours later after being stopped for awhile, it turned on again; later not. Wouldn't start first time this morning, but did later, then not again.

Galileo and Garmin

Is there any reason Garmin, and others, cannot start using the Galileo satellites? They have 18 up and plan to go to 30.

Changing Icons on the "Up Ahead" feature

Has anyone changed the ICONS on the Up Ahead feature?
Say, if you want to choose a specific gas station like "shell" or a specific restaurant like "McDonalds"

In the up ahead feature:

* To search for a specific business or category, select a service, select Custom Search, and enter the name of the business or category.
Select Done.

Nuvi 2598... having issues with audio alerts, but I've done this before...

ok, I'm not a rookie at this, but hopefully someone might have a suggestion...

I've had my alerts working before... I have the latest POI Loader... sox.exe (older version from 1/29/2008 {14-0-1}) is in the C:/Program Files (x86)/Garmin/POI Loader directory... all .wav files are meticulously checked and triple checked to match the file names of the .csv files...

Who do I contact? Error in Map

This was actually told me by a neighbor... I'll post the entire story because it's that interesting.....

First, do a search to find this address on a GPS: 440 Crystal Tree Drive, Waynesville NC

If you then scan the map, you'll see that Crystal Tree Drive has 2 connections to Ned's Cove Road... One below us after 4 switchbacks, and one above us, off of Chipmunk Circle.

POI to appear on map

I have a Garmin and was wondering how to have to POI's I have added automatically appear on the map as well as have them at the POI icon? Was wondering if base camp would do this or some other feature. Thanks in advance

Maps on SD CArd

I just got my 660 back from having a touch screen replaced and while there they updated the maps using a sd card Question is can I also put my custom poi's on the same card as I don't want them on the gps? smile

I bought a Garmin Nuvi 57 a few months ago and it was stolen. Can it be traced?

Great customer service by Garmin

One of my GTM60 receiver stopped receiving traffic siganl. I contacted Garmin support. They suggested software updates etc. and finally suggested me to get the replacement and they suggested me to pay $85.55 CAD for the repair cost or suggested me to buy new one.

POI alerts along a track Possible?

I understand that one can make proximity alerts for individual points. With this format in a cvs file
-113.399 53.46058 Bisset(3020 - 37 Street NW)

Is it possible to make a proximity alarm on a track? As in.. I have a segment along a roadway with these coordinates -113.39781523200,53.45976785320, to 113.39890177200,53.46363705920.

Another POI problem (wav files with 3597)

Having trouble with POI's with 3597.

Made sure I have sox file in POI loader but no sounds or alerts when loading POI's.

Do wav files automatically download when you download the POI file example Walmart.cvs

Never had a problem with the 1450 but you could view the files with the 3597 the gpi file will not open.

Why? SmartLink app

Why is it? When you turn on the logger to troubleshoot Bluetooth issues with the SmartLink app, the unit stays connected for hours and hours and won't disconnect? Then turn the logger off and the disconnects happen within a few minutes, then repeat over and over.

Bah, they may have helped the Bluetooth issues in 3597 software, but not in the 5.4 that the dezl has.

Easter egg

Just found an Easter E in the Folders on my 3597 Want check and see if your unit really is a Refurb or new? Connect it to your computer and open the folders. Select Garmin> Diagnostics> GarminOS.log. Double click or right click and choose Open the log file. At the top of the list is the oldest entry, at the bottom the newest entry.
