Garmin talk

 

Good Idea, but unsuccessful completion.... (neighbor's Nuvi 240W)

Neighbor came over and asked that I help with a project.. Glad To!
In the bag was a Garmin.... She asks that I do whatever I can to it... to make it current..

Nuvi 240W...

OK... Fire up GE and it sees it... and says firmware is current, but then offers me a list of Costs for Map Updates.....

Disconnected and explained to her what she had....

It was a $3 Garage Sale purchase....

Changing theme colors

Poking around it seems there are numerous ways to change the colors in Garmin themes. One interesting web based site is at https://www.javawa.nl/zumocolors.html

SD Card problem in one of 2 2689LMT’s

Last map update one of two 2689LMT’s consistantly failed to load on SD Card.

This update today acted the same way on another brand new 16GB SD Card.
The two 2689’s act differently when attached to computer:
The one that updates correctly reports as a 2689 with a card attached.
The one that fails reports as 2 separate SD Cards.

Routing On ATV Trails With A Garmin GPS And VV Mapping

I recently bought a Garmin Zumo XT for use while ATVing. I also purchased ORV Trail Maps from VV Mapping. Two weeks ago was the first ATV rides with the Garmin Zujmo XT. Yesterday was the first ATV ride with the VV maps installed.

Garmin Zumo XT Bracket

I bought the Garmin Zumo XT recently.

I have plenty of vehicle power cables and suction cup mounts already.

Does anybody know how/if I can buy just the bracket only?

DriveSeries and bluetooth pairing phones and vehicles.

Ia it possible to pair the vehicle AND the DriveSmart series AND my phone at the same time. I tried this with my old 2689 and managed to mess things up.. so loath to try again with my new DS65 LMT.

Ideally, I would want the DS to only show text messages, leaving my current (flip) phone paired to my vehicle where the hands free option works perfect (for me).

Map Update Out

Nice Saturday surprise...Map update came early!

Import trip

A couple of years ago I created a trip/route on MapSource and sent it to my DS-50. I just did a new one but can't find where to import it on the device (senior's moment?).

Any info out there?

Nuvi 2595LMT Formatted Internal Storage

Hello. Good Morning.
I accidentally formatted the internal storage of my Nuvi 2505 and now it is not recognizable in my MAC or in my Windows 10 PC.

Is there anything I can do do or it it trash?

Gamin does no longer support the device and said there were nothing I can do.
They offered me 15% discount on a new unit sad

Can someone help me?

Thank you.

Find Parking

At the end of most routes my DS65 gives me an option to find parking. Is there anyway to turn this off, I do not need a third of my screen filled with a request to find parking.

Do Older Garmins Take Longer To Update?

I am updating my Garmins tonight from 2022.10 to 2022.20.

It seems like it takes longer to update the older Garmins than it does the newer Garmin.

Has anybody else every noticed this or do I just happen to have some sort of odd situation causing them to take longer to update?

My oldest/slowest are Garmin Nuvi 350/360.

One of my newest is a Garmin DriveSmart 65 with Amazon Alexa.

Nuvi 8xx series - no more full NA map, no more cloning?

EDIT 6/26/2021: This issue has been resolved. Please read the later posts.

I posted this in the Cloning FAQ discussion thread, but thought I would start a separate thread since most members don't need or try cloning. Does this spell the end of the useful life of the nuvi 8xx series?

2022 Map Update: Locked

So I just updated my Nuvi 2598, as I've done before many times without a hitch. Today, the Garmin Express installer finished, saying I'm Up to Date, but it also said an error occurred while installing. I had installed the map on both the computer and the 2598, so I opened Basecamp. It had a message stating that 2022.2 needed to be unlocked. Hmm...that's new.

Garmin Express 7.7.0.0

It's out.

PC:

Fixed an issue with the space meter on the Manage Maps page not updating correctly when removing a map.

Fixed an issue with an error modal appearing when attempting to install a 3rd party map.

Fixed an issue with maps being locked in BaseCamp after a user installs maps to the computer.

Narvick 's themes no longer available

Seems the theme files Narvick posted (http://www.poi-factory.com/node/51064?page=1) are no longer available, anyone know if they are available someplace else? Or, could someone who managed a download put them where those that missed out could get a copy?

Thanks

Large JCV File Download Link for 2022.20 Map

Unlike the last Large JCV File update that included four JCV files of varying size, the newest Garmin 2022.20 JCV update has been reduced to two files, D3060360A.jcv (850,465KB) and D1279440A.jcv (820,976 KB). The total JCV file size was reduced from 2.54GB on the last update to 1.59 GB on the current update.

Garmin DriveSmart 50 SD card

Today GarminExpress v.7.5.0.0 in my DriveSmart 50 is asking for a SD card to install Map 2022.20

No matter what I do the Micro SD card is not recognized by GE.

I format a 4 GB card to FAT, NO GO.
Format it to FAT 32 , NO GO.

Tried a brand new 16GB SD card. NO GO.

Garmin Express either tells me it is an incompatible card in FAT or that the card cannot be found in FAT 32.
