Garmin standard POIs

I have a Nuvi 1410. I have loaded the CN North America map onto my SD card but there are no POIs. do i need to load a separate file? if so is the standard POI set available somewhere? My original map was a Middle East one so none of the POIs are relevant. Thanks D

Travel to Italy

Hi I am traveling to Italy soon. . I am hoping someone out here has some garmen downloads to make the driving trip a little easier. I will be traveling to Sorrento, Pompeii, Lecce, Oriveto, Cinque Terre and then to Germany. Rotthenburg, Dachau and Munich. Any information someone has would be greatly appreciated. Thx.

Voice Editor and TTS3 Voices

After looking through FAQ on voices I have a question.

Does TTS Voice Editor handle TTS3 voices?

I am considering a 3597 which uses TTS3 voices.
I always enjoy modifying the voices. I do not believe the 3597 will use the TTS voices.

Loading sound file

I just installed the Cracker Barrel POI file. With the file there were two sound files ... one a wav and the other an mp3. With the 2460 I understand that I need to use the wav. How do I get the file to load and use with the POI? I would like to create a sound file to alert for the Rest Areas, too. Unless there is one already.

Garmin Express is (probably) in your future

Alternate title: Ah, the joys of dealing with Garmin software.

Now that the 2797 is a year old, it's possible to get a decent deal on a refurb, so I bought one. Since GE had just recently started letting Mac users install maps on their computers in addition to the gps devices from within GE, I had lost some of my antagonism to Express.

I've been considering buying the City Navigator Europe maps for an upcoming trip to England, but it's pretty pricey at $99. Has anyone here used these maps? Are they worth buying?

I bought a Magellan Roadmate 5045-LM to replace my Garmin Streetpilot c330.

How can I transfer the Garmin format "My Locations" files to the Magellan?

I found the "Extra POI Editor" in the files, but I'm not sure if/how I can transfer the files. Can someone clue me in? TIA

Garmin Express and "Extras" not loading

I had noted a problem about "Extras" not loading in GE in another thread and someone else mentioned that they also had the problem.

Well the "Garmin Forum" came through with a solution. Here it is:

1.Open Garmin Express
2.Click Device
3.Click Delete Device from Express
4.Uncheck the box next to Delete the saved backups
5.Click Yes to remove the device

Unusual routing

First of all, I ask that many of you read this whole post instead of jumping to conclusions. I was wondering if any one you had designed a route, simulated the driving the route with various stops, and went from stop to finish without any problems? First of all, I designed a route with a courier service that I am employed with. I designed the route with seven stops.

Tracks in a nuvi 850?

Is there any way to load tracks into an 850 and have them display as normal trip logs?

I've done "tracks" downloads with Mapsource (at least Mapsource says it downloaded them) but nothing actually downloads. Trying to upload them back into Mapsource produces the message "no tracks exist".

I've plugged in a micro card w/tracks but they don't display.

"Official" Garmin Express Forum

Garmin recently added a Garmin Express Forum as it's own forum category on their software/developer forum site. At least for the moment, there seems to be an actual Garmin support representative that is monitoring the new forum, which is kind of unusal in the Garmin forums.

Routable Aruba Map For Nuvi?

I maybe traveling to Aruba and it doesn't appear that either the N. American or S. American maps contain routable streets for Aruba. Does anyone know if there is such a thing? It appears they have maps for other islands like P.R. and Jamaica, etc.

Safe Texting - 3490

Has anyone successfully used "safe texting" on their 3490? I vaguely remember when I first got this unit (about 2 years ago) that there was a feature on the Nuvi that would Bluetooth to your smartphone (via MAP) and it would display (or announce?) received texts on the Nuvi.
