Garmin North American 2016.10 Map Update

Well, someone had to start it! rolleyes

Based on prior years history shown here: http://forums.gpsreview.net/discussion/17527/redirect//p1 the new map update release should be imminent but, then again, the last update was about six weeks later than usual.

Garmin Astro 220

If I download a GPX file of geocaching locations, can I upload them to my Garmin Astro 220 and have them recognized?

Garmin map updates, Yes or No?

When I have access to my computer I religiously update to the newest available Garmin maps. Having been away since the middle of October in Mexico and not able to update to 2015.30. I just did the 2015.40.

I know that there are people out there who think it's a waste of time.

Split Screen Question

I just came back home from holidays (1625 mile trip) and noticed on just one occasion the junction view showing what exit to take appeared on my screen and wouldn't go away even though I had passed the view's location.

Updating my two Nuvi's

After numerous problems with the 3790 on my 3,000 mile drive home I decided to do a factory reset to see if that would eliminate these problems. The map would all of a sudden disappear to the voice command screen. The command had been changed a long time ago to "Wake up dummy" to lessen any radio interference. The map would for some reason zoom out so far it was useless.

Older Kenwood DNX-8120 showing "double" the custom POIs (Resolved)

So, I do not like the new "style" of the current models of the Kenwood/Garmin units and have continued to use my 8120 since new. Recently, I went to update my custom POIs (about 80k of them) and when I do, the Garmin is showing "double" entries for each category. For example, if I have a dozen POI categories, it shows all of them and then repeats it again.

Help with "Alerts" on 255w - experienced user NOW having trouble

255W with SD card. MacBook Pro. Software 7.60. North America 2015.40, Storage 12% full (1.6 GB free)

I install basically the same POIs ANNUALLY before each summer trip (Walmart, Coatco, Rest areas, campgrounds, National Parks). thank you for all your hard work to share these. I have tried both cvs and gpx

How to manage PI files???

I have a question about how to manage POI files in my Garmin 2597LMT.

If I go to Categories -> Custom POIs I get a list of my POIs. However there are some duplicates. If I use BaseCamp, POI Loader or File Explorer I can find the list(s) of POs but only a single entry for each group of POIs.

How do I find and delete the redundant POI files?

Thank you.

Thank You OSM Team.

I use Open Street Map + GPSFileDepot topos exclusively on our Garmin hand held hikers. Those involved with OSM continue to improve both the service & maps over time. Rather than downloading predivided sections or whole portions, a user can now specify what tiles he needs http://garmin.openstreetmap.nl/.

In addition the server generates four different configurations available for DL:

Nuvi 2589 (answering phone calls)

I just bought a Nuvi 2589. Works great so far. I have one question. When the phone rings, I can't answer the phone with my voice. I have to "touch" the screen(accept). Shouldn't I be able to answer without touching the screen?

History GPS help desperate

Unlike others trying to hide info I am wondering how to get all my history from my Nuvi. I am being harrassed by someone and this info would prove my honesty. Please can anyone tell me how to download history for the year! Please help usaourcountry@yahoo.com thanks

So Much Pain So Little Time To Enjoy It

The new equivalent of the old Garmin 2597

So I bought a 2597 LMT from best buy a few years ago and also bought the extended warranty knowing that if my previous GPS units were any indication, the battery on this unit would not last 3 years. With the old units, this was not a problem since I could just pop in a new $10 battery, but with the new ones, without a replaceable battery, it was going to pose a problem.

Kenwood DNN991HD

I have a kenwood DNN 991 HD - in dash navi - anyone have experience loading POI on this unit ? Garmin system . I've been trying but can't get it to load the new poi 's that I want . Thanks in advance for any help !

Rest Areas Combined - Advanced Warning

I downloaded and installed the most recent Rest Area Combined file (12/09/2014).
However the Rest Areas BMP Icon does not appear on my Garmin Nuvi 2595 until I am within 0.2 miles of the point.
How do I change the Rest Areas BMP to appear 5 miles or so in advance of the point, so I can discuss with my better half whether to utilize this area and get in the proper lane..

nuvi 680

got to do some ranting about my nuvi 680. I had mine for a few years and never had a problem with it other then replacing the battery and touch screen. Other then that it worked perfect. any how, I decided to go to the States and decided to do an up grade on my maps.Up to this point I had no problems in using it for directions, simple put, enter the address and of you go.

Nuvi 660/Map update

I have two Nuvi 660's. When attempting to update the FIRST 660 from CN North America NT 2015.30 to CN North America NT 2015.40 I got a message that there was not enough room on the Nuvi for the update.

I then tried the update on the SECOND 660. Bingo….. 2.5 hours done, not problem.
