I have a lot of POI's saved in a folder, Can I install certain POIs or do I have to put the ones i want in a folder by themselves?

Garmin's Includes Map Updates?

(New member) Curious if you guys have experienced exactly what the difference is in Garmin Updating Maps on a Device sold with "LM" Lifetime Maps as opposed Devices sold with a purchase designation of "Includes Map Updates".

Alert Sounds

I want to install a different alert sound for Redlight Cameras and I see that there is a mp3 or Wav file, can someone tell me what the difference is ?

can't connect 2598 to Garmin Express or Win 10

Yesterday my 2598 won't connect to Windows or Garmin Express, hence can't update anything.
Tried rebooting and removing and reloading Garmin Express, no luck.
Tried 2 other PC's and a different cable.

Anyone else ever have that problem?

RV770 Voice Command problem

When doing a Voice Command to Find Place yesterday, we found the 770 chokes just at the end of asking what to search for. It shuts down (and restarts, if plugged in). Still doing this today.
On the way in from startup a screen pops up that I've never seen before, announcing that a Map Update was done. Over the air? I haven't done an Express update for a couple of months.

zumo 396 update available

POI Loader for Windows

Has POI Loader support been discontinued? Under Support/POI Loader it says " Software Information Currently Unavailable
This information is either coming soon, not applicable, or no longer supported." I can find it under But no reference comes up under search.

Deleting Custom POI Files

Can someone tell me how to delete custom POIs from Garmin 2797LM

Traffic Provider Update

Haven't installed it yet, but when I updated to latest GE (W7-64) I noticed there was an update being provided....

More or Fewer ?? Just Nosy...

Worth Selling Old GPS?

I'm cleaning out storage and came across my old Garmin 60CSx and 2610. The 60CSx has a broken battery terminal but if the battery is seated "just right", the unit works. The 2610 on the other hand is in mint condition but it's so old, I don't believe I can even upgrade to the latest maps with that thing. I was going to try and sell them but thinking the electronic dump is more appropriate.

Moving installed Garmin Map from C: drive to another drive/partition

I partition my HDD and try yo have as few programs or large files on my Operating Drive C:{ to make the computer a little faster rather than having to search through useless stuff. Since Garmins Maps take up well over 4.4 GB for the full NA map I like to have it on my second partition or secondary HDD. This could also be useful if your C: drive is getting full.

Problem with Nuvi 3597

I have never had a problem with installing POI’s on my 3597 until today. Some background: I started having trouble with my computer shutting down and then restarting. I would get the BSOD after the computer had been running for 25-30 minutes. I took it in to the computer repair shop and they diagnosed a hard drive problem and installed a SSD.

POI file types

I want to delete one of my POI files. Most of them have names I recognize, the one that is the "oddball" (D7378080A.gpi) is the one I think I want to get rid of. There are also file(s) with similar names but different extension.(D7378080A.gma D7378080A.unl). Can I delete all??

Anyone else get this message on a 3597?

Anyone else get this message: "Device will restart in X seconds to reload map data." After procrastinating for the last year, several weeks ago I finally updated to map version NA 2022.20. Ever since, I get the "restart" message during the startup from the powered down state.

Garmin nuvi 765 seen but not recognized

Ran into some issues when updating POIs on my trusty nuvi 765.

Previously, when I connected the 765 to my Win 10 machine, a new Explorer window would pop up for both the 765 and the SD card. That didn't happen this time. I opened a new Explorer window and both the 765 and the SD card are there and I can browse the directories of both.
