Trapster says goodbye...

I got this email today from Trapster...seems they will be ceasing service. I seldom used the service but just the same, I hate to see them go.


After evaluating our ongoing investments, we have decided to discontinue the Trapster service by the end of the year.

The prices I see for the add ons in viago are they all a one time fee or yearly prices?

nuvi 2699LMTHD Discussion

I'm upgrading from a 750 and have questions about some of the changes and differences.

I expected to have spoken street names but apparently that has been replaced with "Real Directions". I'm not buying Garmins explanation - what am I missing?

I haven't found the ability to create, edit and save routes like the 750 ie Route x with waypoints a, b, c. Did Garmin drop this capability?

Nuvi 3580LMT Internal Memory

The internal memory for the Garmin Nuvi 3580 LMT was difficult to find in the various webpage advertisements. It was reported as 4Gb in one post but is actually 8Gb as determined on my PC.

It is a nicely designed unit.

Does anyone know where to find a list that shows Nuvi memory for the various models?


Anyone With A 885T

Back in May 2010 I performed the 2011.10 map upgrade. At that time the voice commands still worked for navigating the basic menus ( e.g. "Show Map", "Where To" , etc), but once I got to the screen for entering the City, voice command where no longer accepted. I made some posts in this thread

Garmin Basecamp is up to version 4.4.4. If it's been a while since you updated, or used Basecamp, recent changes has made a nice difference in ease of use and reduced a number of glitches.

Fixed several issues when using the Pan Tool and the key to move route points

Atlanta HOV Lanes

I'm planning a trip to Florida and the Atlanta HOV lanes, are a real plus.

There are 2 or 3 locations where the HOV Lanes leave the main part of I-75 and then reconnect a little farther along. I tried to create a POI file that would force my NUVI 2555 LMT to force the navigation onto these divergences.

I have 2015-3 loaded.


Which Garmin would you buy on Black Friday?

We need a new GPS. There should be some good deals on Friday. Which brick and mortar store has the best deal and most features on a Garmin GPS? Thank you in advance for your information.

lost voice recognition on 3790LMT

After I replaced the battery on my 3790LMT recently, I had a few oddities. (I accidentally hit the power button several times while doing the difficult opening of the case and dislodging of the old battery, so may have insulted the unit with some odd power cycles).

numi 2598 delete or manage saved / favorites POI's via PC

After adding a bunch of POI's as saved POI to the unit from a PC I would like to know if there is a way to selectively delete them using a PC.

The current.gpx file has all the saved POI's but deleting them from this file does not delete on the unit.

Any help would be apreciated

Nuvi 3590 vs 3597

Other than the general shape and the magnetic mount, does anyone know the difference between the 3590 and the 3597? I can get the 3590 cheaper but is there anything I would wish I had by not getting the 3597?
