usb charging in car and using gps at same time

cool
I have a garmin 710 or 720.
The regular auto charger broke so i use the usb instead.
To get the unit running, i plug in the usb cable to the car usb charging port and the gps device.
Let it boot into full computer mode (shows computer picture) and then unplug from gps device. It will reboot.

GPX/CSV format

What is the difference of these formats and what benefits do they offer?

Abreviations

How can I stop my Garmin from thinking the name is abbreviations? I have a favorite named "I W S". (there are no quotes in the name). When it is referenced it is called "I west south". Any ideas how I can stop this?

Transfering Waypoints to new NUVI

My Nuvi 350 screen cracked.

Got a new Nuvi 1450.

Loaded the *.gpx file with the old waypoints into BaseCamp and somehow loaded those into the 1450.

BUT - none of the waypoint symbols appeared in BaseCamp or the 1450.

How do I:
delete all the waypoints now in BaseCamp and the 1450.

then, get my waypoints with symbols into the 1450.

Thanks
Joel

Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT

Started having problems with this unit almost immediately. I attached it to my computer to register with Garmin and Garmin could not locate the device. The unit had frozen and I could not get it to power on. After about 15 minutes, it finally booted up. The next day, I tried again to register it and again, it froze up. I tried and tried to get it to power up - to no avail.

GCP install

Went to the Mygarmin site to update an older model, 205w, and I am being directed to do a GCP install. It is taking a long time. Anyone else have this issue?

Garmin Nuvi 360 won't see/accept City Navigator Europe SD card

Going to UK in a week, bought a new SD City Navigator card and it won't be seen by my Nuvi 360, which I bought used. Battery low but not dead, no USB/computer cable, only cigar lighter charger. All help appreciated. Thanks, Fred

Latest Map Filename

Hi... I downloaded the latest MAP and had it put on my PC & Garmin... Now I can't find the file on my PC... sad sad

I do see Mapsource.exe , but I believe that is for the application.

I checked this website for a hint or tip... Didn't find anything.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Nuvi 3490 Screen refresh slow

Has anyone else experienced when you are driving that as the map moves along your route the refresh speed is a little slow on these superfast new GPSs?

I found searches and zooms fast, just not map shifting.

Garmin Software Update Spam?

I received an email from what looks like Garmim, but I'm cynical and presume it's spam.

I called Garmin but they were not yet open.

Here is the text:

"We have discovered an issue with software version 2.50 on nüvi 30, 40 and 50 models that could potentially cause your device to not work properly. To correct this issues, please update the software on your device to version 2.60."

GTM 20 traffic DC power cord/Nuvi 765T GPS problem

My GTM 20 power cord has stopped providing power and traffic info to my Nuvi 765T, which has unit lifetime traffic included. I'm way beyond the warrantee period but I found on the Garmin site, that Garmin will service my GTM 20 for $59. I have questions that I would like answered if possible?

3590

I looked at the specs for the 3590 on Garmin website. I am considering buying a new unit. It does not list having a trip log. Other units do have it, as shown at the bottom of the spec list.
Does anyone know if it does have the trip log feature, and can it be reset and does it have "hide" and "show?"
