GPS units with rearview backup camera?

Well, I have not replaced my aging Garmin unit yet.
But I have been noticing some units with a backup camera.

I looked briefly and the units I found were seemingly intended for an RV, which makes sense, I used to have an RV and a backup camera was very helpful.

Call Button feature with Custom POI's loaded to the Chrysler Media Center 430N?

Has anyone found a way around this? The pre-loaded POIs do allow one to call the phone number via Bluetooth.

A 2689LMT in both our cars 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!

What 7" Garmin would you buy, and why?

Wife says maybe we should consider a new a New Garmin.

I'm not certain...

We'd want 7" unit... I would assume Lifetime Maps and Traffic...

What is your preferences?

(This does not mean I am giving up on 660)

Don't think it was WAAS.... 660 Lost it's mind

Inside house, with antenna not up, powered up 660 and added a new favorite...
Was going to have it tell me how long to get to this new destination, but then I found out I had shut down 660 far from home, so it would have to find home first.

So went outside, raised the antenna, and while it was awaiting satellite reception, it flat out died!!!

67LTM Voice

My grandson was trying to free up space on my 67LTM and he lost all the voice files. Anyone know where I can find the replacements. He did do a backup but the voice files was no included.

Red Light Camera file: Ease Of Use and Accuracy

This is my first post. Thinking of installing the POI-Factory Red Light Camera file on my Garmin nuvi 52 GPS device that I received as a gift. This is my first GPS device and I am not sure if the Red Light file is worth installing. Does it work well, is it easy to use, is it accurate, etc.? I live in Nassau County, Long Island, New York and would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

Yellow Color when attaching a MTP device

I was doing some testing of what happens on a restart the other day. I did a master reset on my 2595 and - as I expected - the factory defaults include being in MTP mode.

Before putting the device back into MS mode, I attached it to the computer and noticed that the Icon of the Tower and the USB cord were in yellow (versus the white I am used to).

Viago gone?

I found this link over on the Garmin software forum: http://sites.garmin.com/en-US/viago/

Quote:

This app is no longer available for purchase or download.

It appears that Garmin may have discontinued Viago ... too bad. Although it could have used a few enhancements, I kind of liked the program.

safety and red light poi's to sd card

Hi,

First time here. I downloaded to POI Loader and safety and red light camera files. The instructions say to load then straight to my nuvi. Will they still work if I load them on my sd card instead and install that into the nuvi? I would rather just deal with the sd card most of time instead of connecting the gps.

Thanks, GQ

Can't see my old POI's after downloading new ones?

I purchased a new 50LMT after my old Garmin died. I added some POI's and they worked fine.I later added some new POI's. The new POI's are there but I can not see the original POI's. I looked in the memory and the old POI's are there but they are not showing up on the screen.I went to the download file to add the old POI's but It's telling the files are already there? Am I missing something?

New Foursquare POIs

Does anybody have the new Foursquare POI feature? If you do, how do you like it compared to the old POI system?

Nuvi 2789LMT

Does anybody know what is going on with the release of the Nuvi 2789LMT? It was supposed to be released with the 2014 Advanced Series line but it doesn't seem like it was. All of the other 2014 Advanced Series line are available and the 2789LMT says that it will be available in the 1st quarter of 2015 on the Garmin web site.
