We are renting a uhaul truck to move my son to his new apartment. Is there any way to use the Garmin GPS Nuvi 775 to avoid parkways. Or is there any online sources to map directions for a truck. Thanks.

What Would Be Your Ultimate Automobile And Smartphone Navigation Choices From Garmin?

As posted above, knowing what you know now, say you wanted to purchase both a Garmin automobile navigator and a smartphone with Garmin app, what would you get?

Would you get a Garmin Nüvi 3597LMTHD for the windshield and an Apple iPhone 5S with the Garmin StreetPilot Onboard app?

nuvi 3590LMT

So finally today I bought nuvi 3590LMT instead of getting 2597lmt, any suggestions? Hopefully I made a right choice

Updating Maps on Micro SD card

I was in England last year and had my GPS stolen. I had to buy another Nuvi 52LM to find my way around, but unfortunately it only had the UK, Ireland maps on it.

Garmin vs Rand McNally

Is there a difference in the data provided for a Garmin CSV or a Rand McNally CSV? Question comes from looking at the POI for WinCo and a few others that show a GPX for Garmin and a CSV for Rand McNally.

Basically, will the RM CSV be the same as if created for Garmin?

Maps on Flash Drive

I understand the process for installing on an SD card for use with the nuvi. I want to install to a Flash Drive to use with my PC so I can remove from the HD and still be able to use with BaseCamp.

2598lmt not compatable with garmin cyclops but IS compat. with POI Factory

Just thought I would post info on my new garmin 2598lmt. I bought this at costco and was surprised that it had no speed camera/red light cameras. It did have school zone warnings.
I set up garmin express and saw that they offered a 1 time trial offer for red light cameras. I tried to down load it but it would not down load.

I contacted garmin tech support they said:

Garmin 1490 vs Garmin 3597

Last Sunday I drove from Hamilton Ontario to Brampton Ontario with my both nuvi 1490 and 3597 plugged in and navigation ON. Both devices gave me different ETA. Nuvi 1490 showed me arrival 10 minutes earlier but at the end 1490 went 5 minutes up and 3597 went 5 minutes down. Both selected same route.

Where is new map stored.

When you download a new map using Garmin Express or Mapupdater and installing onto the GPS, where is the map stored on your computer. When I reloaded a map it just installs and doesn't download it again. I'm using Win 7.
