Reverting to previous map set.

I want to revert my Nuvi 2598LMT to the previous map set that I have on an earlier back up. The Nuvi is telling me that there is not enough space. How can I remove the map set that is on the Nuvi now to make room for the previous one to install?

Thank you.

Looking for Advice on New Garmin

Hi all,

It is with great sadness that I report that my nuvi 2597 LMT unit has passed away and gone to GPS heaven. The battery would no longer hold a charge and alas, would not be useful for more than 5-10 minutes if I needed it on foot.

RLC incident

Yesterday I received a RLC infraction notice. The incident is time stamped at 5:27PM on 20 Apr 2016.

Incidentially, I save all my tracks on a weekly basis. On reviewing that date, it shows I was at that intersection at 5:07 PM. Think I have a case?

Plugging in my Nuvi

I have a question about something which always seems to happen when I plug in a GPS into a USB port on my computer.

Very often I get a message "Do you want to scan and fix this attached drive"?

I have always just ignored and cancelled this message but I am wondering if I am doing this right?

Garmin nuvi 3597LMTHD refurb ... $199.95 is having a "Super Sale" through May 15. One of the featured items is the 3597LMTHD refurb for $199.95. I am surprised that there is still a supply of refurbs for this model. Although it is discontinued, this device has been very popular with many of the members at POI Factory (self included).

Whats up with this update? >solved....kinda<

My 3790 and my 2598 show having an time zone map update through Garmin Express. For the life of me I can't figure out why it keeps giving me "There was an error installing the update. WebUpdater doesn't show any updates at all.

Smartphone Link Weather Alert on 3597

I drove from Northeast Pennsylvania to upstate New Hampshire on Thursday, 5/5 and returned on Friday 5/6. On both trips, I repeatedly received a “Coastal Flood Advisory” alert on my 3597 through the Smartphone link app weather function. When I pressed the weather alert icon, nothing showed on the weather map. I traveled through PA, NY, VT and NH both ways and was nowhere near the coast.

Garmin Model Comparison - 2789LMT vs 70 LMT

Does anyone know what the key differences are between a Garmin 2789 LMT and 70 LMT? I have a 2798LMT which is basically a 2789 plus a backup camera. The 70 LMT unit is the newest 7" voice activated unit but it doesn't look like they've changed a whole lot to me. Thoughts anyone?

2598LMT Issues - NYC - Since Recent Update

I have no idea where else to "ask", so POIFactory gets my question smile

Two years ago, I traveled Orlando to Key West to Ft. Myers back to Orlando, not a single problem.
One year ago, I updated it and used it to travel from Ohio to Charleston, SC aagain no problems.

In preparation for a trip from Florida to Madison, Connecticut this week, I updated the unit a week ago.

Battery life on my Forerunner 15 ?

Hi Folks

I use my Forerunner for record hikes and walks storing the tracks in BaseCamp.

Lately I've noticed a decrease in battery life, has anyone seen any "battery replacement how-tis" for the ForeRunner 15 ?



Garmin Express - PC and Mac

Garmin Express is out.

Critical update for PC—wait, just joking unless you're Dutch:

Updated misleading text on Garmin Account creation button in Dutch.

Update for Mac:

• Improved map install logic.
• Updated misleading text on Garmin Account creation button in Dutch.

Why can't my Garmin Nuvi 50 find most places in NY?

Can't find town name (large town) OR zip code. I just get "no matches". I have just updated the maps and still can't find the places I'm looking for. These are NOT small towns. What do I do now ?


Garmin 765T Missing Trip Files Found

Learned about Archive files in blog here. sequentially numbered GPX files in 765T's Garmin/Archive folder. Mapsource app no longer around. In Garmin folder there is a GPX file named Current. Rename that to Orig-Current. Copy a GPX file from Archive to Garmin folder. Rename copied file to Current. Go to Base Camp(BC) App.

3790 Freezing, then Going Black

My faithful Nuvi 3790 has started freezing, and often when trying to get it to unfreeze will suddenly go black (as if turned off).

It can be extremely difficult to get back, but sometimes if I double-click the on/off button the unit will go to the screen that instructs me to click twice to unlock the unit, and then it will operate normally until the next freeze-up.


3590LMT and SD card

Recently purchased a Garmin 3590LMT to replace my 885T.

This model accepts a 32GB micro-sd card.
I intend to have Europe maps loaded onto it.

Two questions:
1. Is it recommended to buy a "Class 10" micro-sd card?

2. I read that buying anything over 8GB was not recommended and that the larger 16GB+ micro-sd cards would actually slow the device down.

Is there any truth to that?

Nuvi 67LM

Just bought a second 67LM, it was a Birthday present for my Son. So everyone in my Family as a Nuvi. It also keeps the rugrats from borrowing my Nuvi! But I also maintain all the devices, yay

Garmin quality and feature differences.

Well, I am getting the urge to upgrade again.

What I can't figure is the differences between the "two-digit" Nuvis and the four.

Is one a better quality of the the other?

I am seriously considering going to 6" or 7". I am not sure at that point the one inch will matter, since I am coming from a 5".

Why the two "brands" within Garmin?

RV GPS is 760 top of the line or something new on the way

Had it with Magellan, just returned my new 9490 as it wouldn't pick up satellites. Do you know if Garmin 760 is top of the line RV GPS or is something new on the way??

Is Four Square updated with Map Updates or is that a separate Down Load................
