Incorrect distance to next turn

On my recent trip to Ashburn, VA I noticed something strange with my Nuvi 265WT. Several times it indicated incorrect distance to the next turn. The map display was correct showing the turn, but even when I had arrived at the intersection where the turn was clearly showing on the map the distance indicator in the top banner might indicate the intersection was still 3 or 4 miles ahead.

Icons on Saved Locations

I've been reading thru

which is a good discussion on POI icons. But have a question about the Icons used in a RV770 GPS and BaseCamp.

2597LMT 1 won't connect the other is fine (along with two other Garmins)

I have two 2597LMT. One won't connect, the other is fine.
Two still older 2360s have no problem so it's not cable.

Corrupt Garmin map download?

Software version: 5.40
Map: Full Coverage of Europe 2020.10

Uploading POI Files to RV-760LMT

I'm sure this has been covered here a million times and I just don't know where to look, so my apologies upfront
When I upload to the memory card in my GPS, what's the best format to use to make the files easy to find and use?


Honda CR-V Navigation

I have a 2018 Honda CR-V Touring which has a Garmin based Navigation. Is it possible to put Red Light Alerts in the system? I have a Nuvi 3790 LMT that I know how to install them.

Garmin Express limits the map areas I can download

Although I loathe Garmin Express, I have had to download it because the Garmin Map Updater is still telling me that 2019.20 is the current version, when the Garmin website says that is 3 versions behind.

Is Garmin Map Updater still working?

I loathe Garmin Express. I have been using Garmin Web Updater and Garmin Map Updater for years. The Web Updater still seems to be working. The Map Updater, not so much. My Garmin Nuvi 2555LMT has the 2019.20 map. The Map Updater tells me that is the current version, but when I go to the Garmin website, I see that I am 3 versions behind.

Allstays POI

Has anyone developed a conversion for Allstays POI's. Looks like they're not in delimiter format.

Zumo 395LM (Is there a way to eliminate the Europe map?)

Greetings, 1st time member. This site looks terrific and very helpful.

Q: I purchased a used 395LM. Works great but need help with maps. I successfully upgraded to the 2020.20 map. The issue is that the unit also came with the Europe map installed in the internal drive. The SD card is new and empty.

Garmin Dash Cam - POI's?

I have a Nuvi and use POI loader to load up POI's from here but I was thinking of getting a Garmin Dash Cam and noticed it shows RLC's etc. using Garmin Express. Does anyone know if the POI's from here would work on that unit or only some proprietary thing from Garmin only? In other words, would POI Loader work with that unit?

grin Hi

GARMIN DEZL 560 LMT GPS for trucks POI

Ok i have seen the post about "Weigh Station POI" but it does not cover what if you dont get the option to pop up in the menu to turn it on or off

This option is visible only if you have proximity points or safety cameras loaded on your device. Proximity points include custom POIs and safety camera databases.

I do but its still not sowing up the option.

Garmin Nüvi 255w - Can it play a sound at the point of making a turn?

I'm torn between two GPS units. I have a Magellan N393M-4300 and a Garmin Nüvi 255w. I like that the voices and vehicle icons are customizable on the Garmin, as well as the speedometer and elevation meter.
I like that the Magellan has lane assist, shows the next two turns ahead. But I especially like that it plays a chime at the actual intersection where you make a turn.

how to factory reset a DriveSmart 50

If possible, how do I do a factory reset on a DriveSmart 50. I updated it to the latest map using GE. When GE stated that the update was completed, I unplug it from the computer and attempt to manual start it but nothing happen. I then plug in to the power card in my car and it still did not come on.

Garmin DriveSmart 65 - Green Icons

Green icons with white hearts are displayed on the map screen with no way to remove them.

Garmin has started a case to correct this.

If you don't want these icons, contact Garmin support and add you name to the list. The more complaints the sooner the problem will be solved.

POI Question (Starbucks in GPX format)


How Long Does It Take For New Businesses To Show Up On City Navigator?

A brand new Casey's General Store opened near me today. I have been watching it, casually, the past few months while it was being built. To their credit, it already shows up on Google Maps. The question in my mind is, how long will it take for it to show up on Garmin City Navigator? Some of us just did the update on CN a matter of days ago.
