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

StreetPilot C330 RGN file conversion

Greetings Fellow Members: I am trying to mod, add, convert Streetpilot C330 RGN voice file into nuvi 1490LMT version extention.Is there a software tool for its conversion.I would like to replace it with the present files for lmt1490.Some day all the marbles logged in their vocal speech will be released and pronounciation will be a dreram come true.


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.?????

Should All previosly loaded POIs be left in folder?

New to Garmin , had a Tom Tom before.
Using a Garmin 2555lm using Poi loader.
Very happy with it so far.
My question is this :The folder where I have the Poi, BMP and MP3 files.
When adding a new POI and associated files should the previously installed POI files be in the folder?
Which would mean installing in manual mode for alerts etc for all previously installed POIs.

Garmin Nuvi 1490 LMT mileage search numbers inaccurate?

When I do a search for locations..the mileage that is listed next to each location's name is not the total mileage to get there from my current location(its always less).. What is the mileage number actually referring to?

poi file for garman 1350 for new york thruway rest stops

Does anyone know of a good poi file for rest stops on the NYS Thruway from NYC to Buffalo? It should signal a rest stop about 1/4 mile ahead.

Nuvi 750 Favorites

As a geocacher I download cache page information (and coordinates) from the site to my Nuvi 750. After downloading the information ends up in the GPX folder in the nuvi. So far so good. I understand that these GPX files then end up being displayed as "Favorites" in the Nuvi. However some of the GPX files stored in the Nuvi are not displayed on the "Favorites" menu.

4.3” vs. 5” Junction View

Hi Guys,

I just bought a 3790LMT (4.3” 800 x 480 pixels) and I find the screen to be very clear and sharp. I notice when the GPS goes into split screen before exiting, I find it a little difficult to read the Exit Signs.

Now I’m considering retuning the unit and buying the 2595LMT (5” 480 x 272 pixels).

Waypoint Categories or Lists and Basecamp

This may be old news to the pros out there but I bought a Nuvi 2555 LMT and whent to use Mapsource to program it. Spent three days playing and testing and will share this with you:

#1: Mapsource will not recognize new Nuvi's. You must use Base Camp.

2. You can move waypoint list from Mapsource to an old Nuvi (mine is a 255W) or or ohter mapsource compatible GPS then load to Base Camp.

Simulating a route on a 2595?

I'm stuck.

I disabled the Junction View file on my new 2595 (because I don't like JV) and wanted simulate a route through a local interchange so I can confirm the file has been disabled and doesn't mess up the map display.

Upgrade Maps

Do you have to paid $89 to Garmin every time you need upgrade a USA maps or is any other way????

My LMT 1490

Greetings Fellow Members;I have tried not to create a motion about water under the bridge, but hopefully we could cure or live with this minor bump.

40 stopped working

All of a sudden, when I powered my NUVI 40 on, all I get is the "GARMIN" and the blue triangle. Won't hard reset, and my PC does not find it.

NUVI40 Kingsport TN

Oregon software ver 5.80 now available for 450 series

No problems installing 5.80 from ver 5.50 directly from my garmin dashboard. Will see later this week if it addresses many of the usability issues (such as tracback, intelligent navigating from imported tracks etc)

Question on Nuvi 2555LMT

I have a Garmin Nuvi 2555LMT. I am trying to create a route in MapSource, or Basecamp to import into the GPSr. Can the 2555LMT import routes from the computer?

Bobbo, Linda, and the furry kid

Still fighting my 1490lmt

Has been suggested I give to my worst enemy, which one, hard to choose.

Nuvi 750 failing need help nuvi 3550lm

My nuvi 750 is not working correctly. After start up you can only touch the sceen about 3 or 4 times and it locks up. No more touches of the screen do anything. Unplug and no stay on/turn off message comes up, just shuts off. I did get it to find a location but as soon as "jill" told me where to go that's all just froze. Any ideas?

Micro SD card file format for 1490T

I am posting the following information so that it may benefit anyone that may need to organize their map data on a MicroSD card. This information was based on trial and error in addition to posts from this and other GPS user group sites. I do not claim to understand or know about any established or "official" file structure rules, but can attest that the following does work with my 1490T.
