Hello, I am trying to find out how to limit access to the SD card on my 2557LMT to a specific period of time, 60 days. I believe this could be done as an addition to the string that identifies the sd card serial number and locks it to the unit. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance! Spacetrucker50
I just bought a nuvi 2545 in Germany and was told I could buy US and Mexio mapas for it.
Trying to buy the Mexico map online at GARMIN, I am told it is not compatible with my nuvi 2545 LM (!) because I it is only compatible with nuvi 2545 LMT or 2545 LT.
Does anybody happen to know what the pattern is currently for Garmin regarding announcing new products? Is it at shows like CES or completely separate from trade shows? Or does it depend on the product line? For example, are aviation products announced at Oshkosh and automobile navigators announced at a car show?
I currently have a Garmin 760 and I am looking to upgrade. I could use recommendations.
I want a large screen and lifetime maps, traffic isn't too important to me. I also use custom POIs.
Do any models have fast processors? If I ask my 760 for a Business within 25 - 50 miles it calculates for 5 minutes and then times out.
OK. I am still discovering my new 2597. What a difference from the 750. What a great device!!
Once following a route, various icons show on the map, mainly gas stations, restaurants and banks.
Question 1: where do i find a description of each icon. Most are self explanatory but others are not.
Garmin just released a beta update for the Fenix with new features that surprised the hell out of me! They basically gave all the fitness functionality including foot pod less indoor run tracking, the ability to create intervals and to download custom workouts from Garmin Connect. Last but not least an improved ski profile.
Is it possible to add custom POI info into a map img file. My in car Garmin does not see the POI in my SD card but it does read the SD card map.img file.
I have had a Nuvi 750 for 4 years and just received a brand new Nuvi 2597. Seems to be OK. Garmin Express recognized the unit on my laptop and installed all updates required. However, when I went to add the custom POIs I had on my 750 using POI Loader, the program cannot find my device. I searched on this site but couldn't find anyone who had that problem before. Am I missing something here?
As I think I understand POI files saved on the Garmin or SD card They are installed as a a sub-directory of /Garmin in a folder named /Some Description.
My 1st question is under what heading should I be seeing the POI's? In the example above I would have thought that I would be seeing a listing under "Some Description", but instead I am seeing Custom POIs. Is this the right thing?
I accidentally deleted almost the files from my Nuvi to updated a new map. I have not the files backed up in my pc before i deleted from gps. Sometimes he is recognized by the PC, but it indicates that the call is loading maps, but always returns to the initial screen (where it has a lock).
Anyone else getting a black screen in Google Maps? Or know why I am.
...and bought a life-time map subscription for my NUVI40.
Because I was stupid, I mean uninformed, when I bought the NUVI.
Of course the full 48 map does not fit, so I just downloaded my region.
Garmin Express says that if I buy a SD card, I can reload the full maps easily. Yes?
Looking at some of the FAQs, I can go up to 8 Gb Yes?
In the Extra POI Editor, what the maximum size for jpeg photo that I can include inside there? I have some POIs created with this soft, ALL of these POIs have photo included. But on my gps, I do not see the photo in some of them.
Does anybody know why a 1490T sometimes only allows the use of uppercase letters when typing the name of a location before saving? Sometimes it allows upper and lower case but usually only allows all uppercase letters (shift button grey)?
Hello,i added a new gmapprom.img on mygarmin nuvi 660. The map was working fine but wen i tried to click at the address it said no data available and so as the hotels and other destination option. can anyone tell me what i did wrong.
Good day members,
My Nuvi 2555LMT one week ago starts suddenly shut down when I browse my Custom POIs list. I use either down arrow or flip up screen gesture browsing my Custom POIs list, the gps shuts down, power off. I should re-start using power button.
Other than that issue, the gps works fine.
Someone have the same issue like me?
I appreciate any help from you. Thank you.
I had a Garmin 2595 , did all the updates, when I input an address the miles for the text never changed as I drove. I exchanged it two times and had the same problem. I just purchased a Garmin 3590, did all the updates, and when I input an address the miles for the text never changed as I followed the screen. I have a Garmin 1390 and that one works great.
Is is possible that the future for Garmin automobile units will be Android based? Certainly Android has been a success. Would be worthwhile or would it just be a waste?
I have just gotten a 3597, love it BUT , Garmin in their great wisdom resized the POI icons but not the vehicle as far as I can see (I did resize my users POI's icons) I find it hard to see among the clutter of the large gas,bank,restaurant, etc ones. How do I get a bigger car?
I just bought a 3490lmt (to replace my stolen 765t) that comes with HD traffic. I am also considering purchasing the Live Traffic through smartphone link. It is to my understanding that both services cannot be used at the same on the device, so can anyone offer any experience as to which one is more accurate?
