RV 660LMT.....screen flicker

On the dash in bright sunlight on vehicle 12v power, with the display set to 100%, the display has a very noticeable and distracting bright then not so bright flicker.

No flicker at < 100%.

Anyone else or is this thing begging to be sent back?

Question on Map upgrade loaded onto an SD Card....

Been using SD cards for Map Storage for years now.... and I've just thought about something.....

Normally I delete the map files from SD card prior to map upgrade.

Normally Map Files have to be renamed after download in order to run from an SD card.

I was wondering..... If I didn't delete the old files, would I still have to rename the files that are downloaded on SD card?


A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!


Maybe I had not noticed this before, but now when my 855 boots up I see something "new"? It is very hard to catch because it just shows for a second or two, but it seems to say HTTP GPSMAPPER and says to register?

Any idea where this came from? How to get rid of it?

I also have a second map showing other than the 2019.11 map.

Garmin RV 660LMT.... tracking?

I recently purchased a RV 660LMT as an aid to my RV travels. My plan is/was to use it in my tow vehicle as a car when not in the RV mode. However my tow vehicle, a 4x4 F150, also sees duty off road and often on unmaped Forrest service roads. When exploring in the past, I have used my Zumo 660LM in track mode, saving the track at days end.

Garmin Nuvi 3597 Custom Route Question

I currently am running a Nuvi 1490 but it beginning to have some issues so I am looking to upgrade. I do a lot of custom routes in Mapsource and Basecamp and I can easily upload any of them to my 1490 and run them without any problems. I tried a 25 series Nuvi sometime back but returned it when I found it didn't handle the route the way the 1490 did.

Garmin & BRP Partnership

I have owned both Garmin GPSs and Bombardier/Can Am ATVs for years, but I have never mounted a GPS on my ATV. I was at a Can Am dealer yesterday and a salesman showed me the Garmin Montana 680T GPS.

He also did mention that the Ski Doo snowmobile folks have the Garmin Zumo 590 GPS.

Return Trip

Is there an easy way to enter your return trip on a RV760? Many times I use coordinates in planning my trip and when ready to return home I would like to not have to re-enter them......Am I missing an easy solution?

Garmin 2019.20 Map Update Won't Be Far Away

Well, sooner or later, somebody would have started this thread. In both 2016 & 2017 the new maps were released on May 18, so I'm guessing the new Garmin map release will be about three weeks away.

Garmin Express is out...

I'm not sure what the changes are for this version as Garmin's release notes are still at 6.3. I did install GE under Windows 10 and it works fine with all of my Garmin devices.

MapSource crashing on route calculation

Occasionally MapSource v6.16.3 will crash when calculating a route. Primarily happens when a way point is added to an existing route. The error reads FATALDIALOG REF.
Anybody else experience this and have found a solution?
