Garmin Rino 700

I just received the following a few minutes ago. And, if I may add, good move, Garmin. I have often thought that the Garmin RINOs are neat devices, BUT over the top expensive. I do feel that there is a need for non-cellular communications for many people, but the price needs to be reasonable.

Garmin 265 WT gives me distance to next interstate even if I'm staying on current highway

Hi, I currently have a Garmin 265WT. The question I have is regarding the display. As an example if I am on a major highway and I am say 15 miles from the exit that I need to use , if there is a major intersection before my exit, it displays the distance to that major interstate/intersection even though I am not taking that specific route and it is not part of my route that I need.

Garmin keeps rebooting (Garmin Drive 51 USA LM)

I recently purchased a Garmin Drive 51 USA LM from Best Buy, first use after about 15 minutes it rebooted itself while I was using the navigation. Kept rebooting every 1-2 minutes. A total pain since you have to then press "Accept" and then "See Map" to get back to the nav screen. At least it wasn't losing my spot on the map.

Garmin Nuvi 660 won't run off car power after replacing internal battery

I have tried 2 different batteries for my Garmin Nuvi 660. Both will charge up through a USB connection, but the unit will not turn off and on with the car power. Each time I put the old battery back in the unit and it will run a little off the battery and works great with car powering up and down with the ignition. Is there some special battery needed??

Updating Custom POI file in GPS Unit

New to the forum and looking for some help. Just purchased a Garmin DriveSmart 61 LMT-S and figured out how to convert custom TomTom POI file for all of my customers locations to Garmin format and imported them. Now my problem is, how do I add a new location to that custom file.

POI alerts for Garmin- Honda 2017 Canada

Hi all

It's my first post. I have Garmin in dash Honda CRV 2017 Touring (Canada). How can I load custom voice alerts for Red light camera, speed camera and enable proximity alerts.

I was using Nuvicam earlier for my old car in which I changed the region to UK which enabled proximity alerts.

I am struggling to do same but I guess there is no such option to change region in Garmin-Honda.

Garmin Drive 50

Dear Users,

I have recently purchased Garmin Drive 50 and used only today to a route where we had intersection.. I could see junction view pop-up.

Is it a case this GPS doesnt support split screen junction view?

Nuvi 2757 LMT - is latest software update causing charging issues?

Hello All,

Well, the latest weirdness has cropped up with my 2757 (but not my 755T). I recently used Garmin Express to update both devices with the latest maps but the 2757 had a software update that applied while the 755T did not.

How Times (and Costs) have changed

While looking at my account today I stumbled across the sales pages for my very first Nuvi back in 2005. Look at the price I paid for that thing compared to the DriveLuxe50 I got a couple of weeks ago. All prices are in Canadian Dollars:

Nuvi 350, 760, 1695LM, 3790LMT, 2460LMT, 3597LMTHD, DriveLuxe 50LMTHD and TomTom XXL540s, HereWeGo for Android.

Bypass a via

I set up a route and mistakenly set a via a few feet beyond an intersection where I wanted to turn.
For the remainder of the route the GPS kept prompting me to make a "U" turn in order to get back to that via.
Is there a way to easily cancel that via and continue on the route? I'm using a 3597.

660, though limping, still impressing neighbors

Few days ago, in conversation with Neighbor .... How to get to this location????...
"Why don't you borrow my GPS?"
I programmed the destination in 660, and showed him how to get past the password on power up, Select a saved destination, and after he got there, how to select our "Home"....

Got it back yesterday.... Worked fine!

2689LMT That we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

Door-to-Door vs Logical Addressing

I have seen some posts about Door-to-Door and Logical Addressing. Can somebody please clarify the difference in these two terms for me, if any.

Also, what is the benefit of these features?

Gotta travel on ... with my nuvi 2450LM.

GPSCity DriveLuxe 50 refurb

Restaurants on the map

I've got the Garmin Drive 50, how the hell do I remove the restaurant and other unwanted symbols on the screen, it's showing every thing from fast food to full restaurants............

In simple language I can understand, with photo's if possible....


Low Battery

My GPS saw low battery, and then screen becomes blank. I don't know where battery is. Then, I may unplug and replug and it will work again. Don't want this to happen when traveeling unfamiliar routes.
