Something I'm missing? similar menu compared to the 2797 I have.

Map Error Correction Request Thread

I have noticed that there has not been a thread dedicated to correcting map errors. We have addressed a couple, but as a whole there are many people who are not able to correct the errors via MapCreator by HERE.

sd card (nuvi doesn't recognize it)

I have a nuvi 67lm memory is almost full, I bought a scan disk ultra 16GB and formatted it fat32 the nuvi doesn't recognize it but it shows up on my computer as a separate file on the computer when I plug in the nuvi into the computer?


Has anyone use a Power Pack with there GPS? If so, what brand are you using?

3790LMT; 2595LMT; 3590LMT, 60LMTHD

2689LMT Map Location

Does anyone know where the map file is stored on a 2689LMT? I cannot find it in any visible sub folders.

When I went to install 2018.20 last week, the unit told me there was not enough storage available and that the update required 10 GB. Holy cow!

I was going to move the map file to my HDD and remove it from the 2689 so that I could then install the new map but I could not find the file.

Garmin map updates disappointing

Well, I'm about to give up on Garmin. I moved into my house 19 months ago. Google maps added my neighborhood and my house address 12 months ago. Garmin finally updated the maps with my street with this update, unfortunately I still can not enter my house address.

Nuvi 3597: Display timeout

I'm trying to figure out what this setting does. (I want to find ways to extend battery life.) The owner's manual says:

"Display Settings

Display Timeout: Sets the amount of idle time before your device enters sleep mode."

Does this mean the unit is put to sleep when the GPS no longer detects motion?

Nuvi 58lm problems ("accessory not available")

I bought a traffic receiver for my 58LM and it says "accesory not available". From what I can read the only difference between the 58LM and the 58LMT is the plug but I can't verify if this is the correct one.

The plug is a GTM 25

Any ideas?

My ancient 855

Having just updated my 855 with the 2018.2 map I am running into a strange situation which has never ever happened before. I also installed the large JCV file which it has always been able to handle. Both are on an 8 GB SD card.

Nuvi 350 long gone, Nuvi 855LMT, Nuvi 2797LMT, 3790LMT passed on to my daughter. Using Windows 10

Garmin Express: Windows Application Log Error (esu.exe)

Updated 2699 now the traffic cable doesn't work

rolleyes Dunno what the heck happened with that last update but now my Garmin (2699) is constantly complaining that the traffic cable is incorrect and I need to use the "correct" one. Worked fine before so I don't know what's going on now. The traffic settings show it unable to find a service (just keeps searching).

finally saw it happen

I've always been angered when turning left with a green arrow, and having someone doing a right on red doing such and cutting across one lane. Today? Accident. Person who had the green arrow sustained damage to the right fender, person who did the right on red, damage to the left fender.

How much do we want to bet that each cop talking to the respective actors, has a different story?

Installing poi in garmin units

I recently used the Garmin POI Loader to install POI IN two different Garmin NUVIS. After which both units turned off and would not turn back on. I called support and they attempted to talk me through various attempts to get the units up and running. All of which failed and I subsequently send both uninstall in for repair or replacement.

Ever Wonder ?

Whwn is it time?

My nuvi 1450 has been around for a while. Having problems programing, turns "off" to download maps. hasn't "talked" to me for a while with the TourGuide program. And it is probably Garmin doing this "but I don't like seeing a hundred miles wide map displayed. Some other things but I was wondering when is it time for a change? She still works, mostly BUTTT. Any hints? TIA

Wake-up Command

Some responses I got from my thread about voice command problems has led me to a new question.... Garmin's factory wake-up command is "Hey Garmin", Mine are "Alexa On" and "I'm Lost". What do others use to get their GPS' attention?

Free space on a New Garmin drive Smart 60LM?

I just bought a new drive smart 60LM, downloaded the latest map 2018.20. After the map downloaded in Garmin Express I selected add map to computer. After over 3 hours the progress bar was stuck on 50%. Unplugged the Garmin, otherwise it would still be sitting at 50%. Everything works fine, but the Garmin is 98% full. Does this sound right?
