How do you classify a Waypoint or Via

to not be announced when driving a route? I read on here somewhere that Basecamp has that ability. That would be great if it does, but I haven't been able to find a way to make it do so.

Thanks for your help.


I have a MAC running OS Mountain Lion. I needed to update my maps and it always says I don't have enough memory. I deleted everything what do I do to make the gps work again? What do I do in the future so that I don't have to delete everything again?

Thank You All,

Current.gpx File Shrinking

When I lost my 465t in a fire, I decided to get the Dezl. Luckily, I had a fairly recent backup of my Favorites which I was able to copy to the Dezl. This file - current.gpx - was 2.5 MB when I copied it over.

INRIX Traffic on a Garmin!

Anyone exited about the new Garmins that are about to come out?

Garmin and INRIX just inked a deal to put the best, by far,traffic data using digital radio on some new Gamins. At least the Diesel models!

If you have an Android device, INRIX has a free app in the market. It will amaze you, much better than Google's traffic! And totally destroys what Garmin uses now!

Can't Install American Jill - Nuvi 50LM

When I try to run the program, the COM/USB portion tells me it can't find the device. I've tried Auto-Detect, the com ports, changed baud rate etc.

I can "see" the GPS from the PC no problem.

What am I missing?

How to erase POI category on Nuvi 3580LTM

Hi guys,

Hoping someone can assist as I am having trouble with my new Nuvi 3580LTM.

1450 lost TTS

A couple of years ago I bought myself, my daughter, and my sister Nuvi 1450's with lifetime maps. Whenever a new map gets released, I udate all three 1450's and everything is (was) wonderful. I didn't actually take the other two out on the road after an update, I just assumed that their 1450's continued as well as mine.

Connecting usb cable around GPS usb connector

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200 that the usb connector broke off. So I was thinking of connecting an old usb cable to the battery connector. The battery has a red, green and black wire. After cutting off the male (small) end of my usb cable I see it has a red, green, black and white wire. I'm never going to connect to my pc again so what the heck.

Problem with waypoints on Basecamp

I have a bunch of duplicate waypoints on Basecamp part of them have no position, it comes up as 0,0. I don't seem to have them on the Nuvi 3790, only when connected to Basecamp. I've tried to delete them but they don't stay deleted, then Basecamp fails and I have to re open it. They are back when I do. I could go thru and use copy paste and change each one but there are to many for that.

There is a white line across the middle of my 2595LMT

When I turned my 2595lmt on this morning, there was a white line across the middle. I did a hard reset but it is still there. Has anyone else had this problem? I am thinking this is a screen issue and I need to call Garmin Monday. Thanks for your replies.

Garmin going away from NAVTEQ and back to INRIX for traffic?

Just the other day, in the UK, Garmin started the switch BACK to using INRIX as its traffic supplier (Source: The article contains this interesting quote: "The UK will be the first market where Garmin will introduce the new technology."

Can POIs generated for my Garmin be also used on a Hyundai nav system?

The answer is probably no but just in case someone has found a way to add poi groups to a car nav system, it would be nice to know. I'd like to get the nav system in my new car to be as flexible/useful as my Garmin is. Thanks

OK, if you install a fox.exe into the poi loader, with the idea to add wav sound to your poi folder, yes this work perfect.....BUT if you want to add Mp3 music to your older garmin 350 (Note the 350 is compatible with mp3). Do you have to remove the Fox.exe from the poi loader before install the mp3 o is OK.?????
