Garmin Lifetime Updater

Bin talked about before, just boggles my mind. They get you to download the Garmin Lifetime Updater and they give you 3 options, one of them is put the update on your Computer. I have NEVER gotten that option to work.
Even if I choose Device and Computer it still doesn't work.

??? New Nuvi - works well with PC transferring data both ways ???

Hello all.....need advice. I am looking to replace my Nuvi 205W with a better model of Nuvi. I am a computer geek in that I like to export my favorites to my computer to use in Excel and use for backup. I know I can upload limited data into the GPS but wanted to do more with Favorite "maintenance" and additions through the PC.

Are There Certain Times Of The Year Or Certain Trade Shows When Garmin Announces New Products?

I was wondering about that tonight and it might be nice to know when they are likely to release announcements on new products.

Garmin nuvi 2455 software update and custom POI

I have updated to software version 6.30. Since the update, when I look up custom POIs, instead of a list of files by category (Arby's, Harley-Davidson dealers, McDonald's, etc), I get a search of all custom POI locations within 10 miles of where I am located. I'm scratchin' my head over this one, folks ... how can I get my custom POIs re-organized by category?

Nuvi 1450 Won't show content of GPX files

Hope you can help.
newbie here, so be nice;-)

I download some POI GPX files for Munich, Vienna, Prague. plus some other CSV POI.

Using Garmin POI loader, installed on on my Nuvi 1450.

All the lists show up as expected but all the GPX formated files are empty, whereas the CSV files have content as expected.

Any ideas?

New Case Logic case for my 5" GPS

I have an older model 3.5" Case Logic case for my Garmin nuvi 255W. It is really nice. It has a hard case on all sides and a padded interior with a mesh pocket and a lens cleaner. It has plenty of room for the GPS and a cable and is protected very well.

Gotta travel on ... with my nuvi 2450LM.

Kenwood Excelon - Garmin POI's?

I'm in the early stages of deciding if I should upgrade my Pioneer head unit to another Pioneer or a Kenwood. The Kenwood uses Garmin as their NAV engine. I have a Nuvi for when I travel (3490LMT). However, I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the Kenwood Excelon series in regards to installing POI Factory POI's?

Alphabetized List of POI Files (browser display problem)

When I go to this list and scroll down it, when I get into the "H" area it starts to run together and on top of each other, making it impossible to read or access these files. Any thoughts as I have tried several times, same results. If someone could post this as a file, maybe I can download and access. Thanks
