Could not input addresses after downloading latest map updates from Garmin (long)

After downloading and installing the latest map updates from Garmin on my Nuvi 3790, I launched Garmin BaseCamp just to play around with it a bit and learn how it works.

"Me? I'm not worried. I leave my GPS in the car. Sometimes I place it under the seat, sometimes in the glove compartment, and sometimes in the trunk. No need for me to take it inside with me. I don't believe that anyone could break into my car other than smashing the windows. I feel safe."

Zumo 550 problem

I experienced a problem with my Zumo on my motorcycle today, the speed and the next street names were running right along with me but the map was a few blocks behind, freezing at points and not keeping up.

Think a hard reset will work? If so how would I do it?

Suffolk County NY Doubles Red Light Cameras

New York State has granted Suffolk County in Long Island NY to double its Red Light camera locations from 50 to 100. Adjoining Nassau county was also approved in March to double its cameras from 50 to 100.

These two counties will have 200 cameras which is far more than many other states combined totals.

What disturbs me is the following statement:

How to turn on tour guide for POI'S to alert when close?

Hi Gang,

Ive looked around for the specific answer to this but can't come up with it anywhere.

I have some custom POI's on a memory card in my Garmin Nuvi 250w. Red light cameras.

I've just downloaded POI loader, but i still can't figure out where the loader come's into play, and how to get a tour guide mode so the alerts happen automatically.

Thanks for any help.

File to save to back up all favorites.... Nuvi 660

I asked this a long while back, but didn't save the information name/location.... So I ask again....

There is a file that contains all the favorites I've saved.... in my Nuvi 660....

And, If you back this up, can you reload it later in case your favorites get deleted from a reset, and by copying it back, does it reload all the favorites?


A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

Garmin Guidance 3.0. Is it really better?

Microsoft Streets & Trips as Tracking Map

Using a Garmin 265wt. I would like to be able to use Microsoft Streets & Trips 2011 as a tracking map, but can only show the first leg of track. Does anyone know how to get the entire track to show? I've setup GPSGate to see track live, no problem, but can't get the GPX file to show.
