Installing Large JCV File On 2495LMT

I downloaded the large JCV file for the latest map 2014.40 but not sure where to put it on the 2495LMT. I have my computer set to view all hidden filkes but can't see an existing JCV file on the Garmin. Can anyone help me? Thanks.

Slight problem since last map update

I updated my 3790 a while back to the newest Garmin map and it worked fine all the way home from Mexico. But I always set up a route. The GPS zoomed in on the roads and highways I was on just fine.

Now that I am home and in my own town almost never have the need to set up a route where ever I travel it looks like I am at about 5 miles altitude.

Bluetooth connection using Smartphone Link app works great now

I used to have lots of Bluetooth connectivity issue on my Nexus phones with Nuvi 3597. I used to close the Smartphone Link app after shutting down my Nuvi 3597. Far the past one week, I stopped closing the app, it is always running. Now my Nexus phone connects flawlessly with Nuvi. It is working flawlessly on Android not sure of IOS.

MapSource deletes old tracks

I have a Garmin Nuvi that has been used for 4-5 years. When I connected it to BaseCamp the first time, I could see tracks from as early as 2009.

Later, I connected it to MapSource, also for the first time ever. MapSource could only see about four months of tracks. When I reconnected it to BaseCamp, it too could only see four months of tracks.

City Navigator North America 2015.10

Are there any hints when CN NA 2015.10 will be released? I have some relatives' Nuvis temporarily so it is a good opportunity to update the maps for them.

If the new version is coming out in the next week or so, I will hold off to update to the latest version, but if won't come out until late May, I will just update them to the version that was released in February.

Copy everything from 2460 to 3597?

Garmin StreetPilot 2820 and NuMaps 2014.4

Since CN North America 2013.3, the entire North America mapset no longer fits on my StreetPilot 2820 that I use on the motorcycle. My work-around is to load the maps into Mapsource or Basecamp,and create an unlocked img file of the lower 49 States and eastern Canada. That has reduced file size from 2.3 GB to about 1.6 GB.

Nuvi 2797LMT black out screen

Good day all of you, I just get the Nuvi 2797LMT.
It works fine until I had registered and map updated the unit via Garmin Express. Now, the unit goes black screen after the Garmin's logo starting screen.

Per the user manual, I hold 10 sec the power button to reset the unit, but same result, the black screen still there.

Other technics to bring my 2797 back to life?

I played with my Nuvi 765t yesterday and suddenly there was a picture of a camera in the top right corner of the screen. When I pressed on it it made a sound line a camera taking a picture. Any ideas?

2597 and Route Calculation

I cannot understand how the device is choosing what route to take. I have it set for fastest time and turned most avoidances off. I think ferries are turned on. However, it still does not give me the fastest. For example, when driving in New Jersey it does not take the NJ Turnpike.

3490 with GTM60, Does it work for you?

Hello All,

I recently bought a 3490LMT to replace a 1350LMT with a bad display.

I noticed it came with a GTM60 cable, with HD traffic. That's great, but I'm in Canada and won't be receiving any of that.

HD traffic

While reading the thread 'Any good deals out there' I have seen the 'HD Digital Traffic' with the 3597. Having seen this before and not knowing what that was, I watched a small clip on the subject. To those that have this feature, does it work as stated? Does it help that much as being faster receiving more detailed traffic updates?

Selecting Active POIs on the 3590

I uploaded the Redlight Cameras POI, Rest Areas, and some Fueling Stations using the poi loader. The redlight areas appear on my 3590 just fine. Nothing else does though. With the 3590, how do you select the different custom poi files you want to use?

Transfer Routes to Garmin

I have been trying unsuccessfully to transfer a route from either MapSource or Basecamp to my 855. It would seem it should be quite straightforward. Is there something I am missing, other than selecting the "Send to Device" button?
