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

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.
