Battery for Nuvi 2598LMT.

I looked at Ebay for a battery for my Nuvi 2598LMT but had no luck but found some for the Nuvi 2597LMT. Can I use this one for my 2598LMT?
Thank you.

Issue uploading routes to NUVI

I have a new Nuvi 2589. It is updated with the latest version of all the software. I have the latest version of Basecamp for Mac. I can create routes in basecamp with no problem. I then click the upload and the window opens and says the upload to the device is done. I disconnect my device and start it. I then get an error "Cannot Save Trip" wit the tripName.

Thanks Lonnie


Hello! I am a bit confused. I have downloaded POIs to my PC, and loaded them to my Garmin with POI Loader! My question is it possible to have POI files run continuously in the background, so that they appear on my GPS as I am traveling, or are the POI files only usable in a static-type mode!

Strange Problem with 2639LMT

I bought this Unit about 4 weeks ago, updated the Software and Maps. I ran a Simulation and everything was good to go. Later on that day, I plugged it into the Car Power port ( Rated at 5amps )and as soon it powered up, the Unit went into Computer connection mode, could not power down but after I disconnected the Power Cord, I got the Garmin Logo, the Unit worked fine after that.

Where did the phone book go?

I use my Nuvi 2598 sometimes to make a phone call using voice comment. Lately Phone Book and Call History is not highlighted any more and of course I can't use it. . Anybody has an idea what happened?

Thank you.

Detour Option

On my old 2460 I could tell it there was a detour and it would plot a new route around it. I use to use it often when I just didn't want to use the suggested road it wanted me to turn on. I can't find that option on our two current Garmins a 2689 and 2589. Did they remove this feature or am I just not finding it?

I made Google Earth

I just happened to look at my house on Google Earth yesterday, and lo and behold, there I am in the picture. See


That white blob is me mowing the lawn. And I know that because when I mow, I move a decorative park bench out of the way by placing it in the middle of the drive - which is what caught my eye.

3490 Overheat ?

Hi. I have a 3490 and several times lately it has said Overheat or something like that.

Anyone else been experiencing with their units ?

I know years ago there was a recall on some batteries that were causing overheating, but the 3490 wasn't among those units.

Load Map Updates On SD card

I need a step by step procedure describing how to load map updates to an SD card on my LMT 3490. The device is full when I attempt to update I get the message to use an SD card. The question is how? Garmin express finds the device +SD card but I have a choice of Device, Device and computer, and computer.

Nuvi 2599LMTHD Voice Command

I've just started to find my way around this unit.

Looking for feedback from anyone with Nuvi 2599/2699. When I use voice command to "Find a Place", let's use Costco as an example, it displays Costco warehouses but shows multiple listings for same location all with the same address.

Any idea what why it does this ?

How can I Remove Custom Pois from Garmin Nuvi?

Hello, 2 questions:
1) Is there any way to remove the CUSTOM Pois directly from the Garmin device, without having to go to Poi Loader ?. My device is Nuvi 765t.
2) Is there some Garmin model that allows deleting custom pois from the device?
Thanks and regards.

Nuvi 2689LMT - No "Safely Disconnect" icon in system tray

Hi, all,

When I have my new Garmin nuvi 2689LMT connected to my PC (Windows 7), there is no "Safely Disconnect" icon in the system tray, and no "eject" option in "my computer". Each time, I have had to just unplug the USB. This makes me quite concerned that data from the nuvi might be lost or corrupted, but I have no idea how to resolve the issue.

Nuvi 2599LMT

Just purchased factory refurbished Nuvi 2599LMT. Have yet to check what mapset version is installed but I'm guessing update might be in order.

Garmin Express for PC

Garmin Express has a new update.

The link I used to use to find the Release Notes fails me so if someone can post the changelog, or even better, post the Garmin Forum link to this and future changelogs, we'd all appreciate your help.
