My Garmin nuvi 785t stop working

My Garmin nuvi 785t was operating great. I was using with my car adapter. It failed to start last week All I got was the logo screen and go to the map loading and when it finished loading the screen went blank. What is wrong. The battery is charged and I did not have it on security lock.


Search Tool

I was out running errands today with my 3590LMT. I don't know what happen, but my gps was acting kind of funny. My dashboard wasn't showing what I had input into it. My VC commond was working. After I got home I checked everything and recovered my VC and dashboard. But now I have lost my Search Tools. When I use search it give me a msg "Map data in not available} (or no data available)

Route 200 not on latest map

I just came back from Rockville, MD From 495 I headed north on I95 and around Beltsville I see Route 200 Toll Rd. To 29. It's open and it does look new but I would think the latest Garmin map would show it but it doesn't.
Anyone know how long that road has been there?

Files reqired for making speed camera poi

Hi all

I have a garmin nuvi 710, it has a good database of speed cameras.
How do i set up a poi for a mobile camera site
I want the poi to have voice alert and icon.

I believe i will need a gpx file plus a bmp file plus an mp3 (voice alert file) if this is so how do i combine the files into a poi.

Sound files for POIs

I have a Nuvi 255w and just started using POIs. My question is: What format should I save sound files; wav or mp3?

I may not know anything, but I know what I'm doing.

City Navigator 2013.20 North America Must Be Close

City Navigator 2013.20 North America must be close to being made available. I believe 2013.10 came out on May 9th, so I'm guessing 2013.20 NA will likely be available sometime in the next week or so.

Politicians and Diapers must be changed often for the exact same reason...

Max Waypoints = 1000

My Nuvi 2495 says that it has a max number of Waypoints/favorites/locations: set at 1000. Does this mean that I can only upload 1000 POI's? Is there anyway around that? I noticed a campsite file well over 1000 line items...

Garmin software update causes freeze

I have an older Garmin 760 with lifetime maps and traffic. After a software update last spring, my unit started freezing unexpectedly. Has anyone else had this same issue with Garmin software? They downgraded the software in June, which helped, but some features were lost in the downgrade.

Base Camp vs. Map Source

After being forced to use Garmin's Base Camp for a few weeks now, I am really missing Map Source.

Is anyone else having trouble adapting, or is it just me?

Adding to Route 3590 LMT

After entering a first destination, it seems when I add a second destination to my 3590 it puts it first in line even when another, already entered location is nearer.

Are numbers allowed in POI .GPI file name?

Are numbers allowed in a POI .gpi file name as long as I don't use the "@" character (i.e., "POI 7-29-12"). I want to put a date tag but want to be sure the Garmin doesn't use numbers without the "@" character in the file name for some other purpose like set proximity alerts.

My 40 went nuts today

Leaving my home for the next city south, Garmin always tells me to take a secondary route. But, since the motherboard between my ears take priority, I go north for 4 miles and hit the Interstate. About 1/2 mile past the turnoff for that secondary route, Garmin recalcs and gives me the interstate option. Every time.
