Add Logo

First off I have a Garmin Zumo 660. I downloaded the POI file from here that has all of the Harley Davidson stores (well at least most being it's missing New Orleans HD) and it states that I download a bmp file and stick it in the same file as the GPX file and it will add the HD logo to my map when I am riding and get close to the store (as long as I am not mistaking what they are saying).

So Sad!!

I am so sad! I lost the cool breeze of the Windmill

With school starting and screaming out of control kids, I have forgotten to check the site. Will do better wink

United Kingdom - custom poi files

Hi,

Firstly I must say this site is pretty amazing. Seen some really good things on here already.

I actually found the site because I was trying to figure out how to change my red light and speed camera alert tone to something a bit better than the current tone.

I have the cyclops pack installed (it is just the trial) and with this I still just get the tone which I am trying to change.

Redlight Older Garmin Nuvi 1350T

I needed to create a custom POI and I need the red warning to indicate when arriving 1/2 mile from the location.

I created a file called;
Home_Redlight.csv
Manually installed it to the SD card at a distance of 2640 feet.

3597 LMTHD loses voice guidance intermittently. Please advise.

I have had the Nuvi 3597 for about a month. The maps and software (v 4.40) are current as of this post. I just used it on it's first long road trip and, for some reason, the voice guidance frequently does not come on when I choose a saved location and hit "go". The map shows giudande but the voice prompts are silent.

Minnesota OHV Trails Downloadable GPS Data

I am an ATVer. I was looking at the Minnesota DNR webpage and I noticed that they have OHV trails downloadable GPS data. Has anybody here tried anything like this on their Garmin?

Smart-Phone Link wants to send me to Virginia for Restaurants in California

Planned to meet a couple of my buddies for lunch at Trellis in nearby Menlo Park, CA. Fired up Google Map on my MotoX, found the restaurant without incident. Using “share” via SamrtPhone Link to send the coordinates to my 3597, I was amused to find that the SmartPhone Link is ready to send me to a location in Merchant Square, Colonial Williamsburg, VA.

Nuvi 650 bricked?

Can anybody give me some 'fix' suggestions? Unit powers on and boots up to the page telling me the maps are out of date, but touch screen won't allow the 'ok' click to continue, then screen goes dark. I tried the 'button' reset under the flip antenna, no luck. Suggestions?

Navdy HUD (Head Up Display) and Garmin

I have seen ads for some new HUD Navdy. Looks pretty good but not sure if it will be compatible with Garmin units? Not sure how it will do the navigation? Has anyone read about it? I will appreciate your feedback.

How well does HD traffic work in Phoenix?

I've been reading some threads here and it seems that everyone's opinion of HD traffic differs. Can anyone tell me how it functions in the Phoenix area? I use the traffic feature on my 2595 every day and, while it may not always be accurate, it's not bad. It certainly has proven to be a feature worth having.

GTM 21 power cord

My GTM 20 cable cord busted on me so I threw it out and bought a GTM 21 cord that's suppose to be compatible with my unit. Can anyone tell me if it's compatible? Whenever I plug it in to my lighter then to my unit it says "Accessory needs external power".

How do I register this cord that I bought on Ebay from someone in China? Any help appreciated!

Nuvi 660 says "Bong - bong - bong."

When I drive by a rest area the device starts going: "Bong - bong - bong." Is it possible to cure it from doing this?
