Mass Storage (works on one computer but not the other)

I have a peculiar situation relative to mass storage.
My desktop will recognize my 3597, however the laptop will not using the same cable. Also using the same cable, both computers will go to mass storage for my Montana 610.
I have tried using several other cables, but it just doesn't help.
When connected to the laptop the 3597 does turn on, but does not go to mass storage.

Problematic POI (only shows 60)

I've downloaded the "Canadian Rockies Peak Finder" POI and although it is quite dated in age, the description states that there are over 1500 points listed. Now when I download it I only get 60, and Ive deleted the file and then reinstalled it (POI Loader ) numerous times and it still remains at that 60 points I to assume that it is just incorrect in the description?..

Large JVC file working on Nuvi 2599

I was reading about the large JVC file on the thread:

"What is the large Junction View file for Garmin On The Road devices and do I need or want it?"

And it says on there that :

"Melaqueman - May 7, 2016
Added an indication that the large JCV file may not work with the nuvi 2797"

Nuvi 2595LMT Traffic coverage

Hey all,
Does anyone know the coverage of Garmin's traffic service in Canada?.. forgive me I'm as still new to this whole traffic service thing but my unit has the built in receiver as apposed to it being on the power cable (if that makes a difference)
Planning a trip East into Manitoba and Ontario and would love this feature to work.

Thanks in advance! wink

GE v. Download install problem

As posted today I tried to update my GE. First I did via GE update itself on two different laptops.

Went through all the motions and then said "Installation failed".

Next I downloaded GE from Garmin to laptop # 1 and installed it. No problem it installed GE v.

Did a download from Garmin to my other # 2 laptop and this time it installed GE v.

The GPS's Way or the Highway

We're checking out our new Garmin DriveAssist 50 while on vacation. When we switch up drivers, I've been devouring REAMDE by Neal Stephenson.

Came across this humorous passage in the afternoon:

Garmin express not installing on win10 computer with a .net fail

I re installed Win 10 on a Sony Vaio and cannot get Garmin Express to install. It worked before it was re installed. .net Framework seems to be the problem. I installed the .net repair tool but that never worked. Has anyone got a solution to this.

POI Editor Question (some of my GPX records do not load)

I built a POI file for an upcoming trip from California to Florida, and loaded it to my GPS (Nuvi 2460lmt). In verifying that all the points where there in the file, I discovered that only about half of the POI file actually got loaded to the GPS. No rhyme of reason to which ones got loaded.

Garmin 780 map update (is in my 780?)

Garmin Rino 700

I just received the following a few minutes ago. And, if I may add, good move, Garmin. I have often thought that the Garmin RINOs are neat devices, BUT over the top expensive. I do feel that there is a need for non-cellular communications for many people, but the price needs to be reasonable.

Garmin 265 WT gives me distance to next interstate even if I'm staying on current highway

Hi, I currently have a Garmin 265WT. The question I have is regarding the display. As an example if I am on a major highway and I am say 15 miles from the exit that I need to use , if there is a major intersection before my exit, it displays the distance to that major interstate/intersection even though I am not taking that specific route and it is not part of my route that I need.

Garmin keeps rebooting (Garmin Drive 51 USA LM)

I recently purchased a Garmin Drive 51 USA LM from Best Buy, first use after about 15 minutes it rebooted itself while I was using the navigation. Kept rebooting every 1-2 minutes. A total pain since you have to then press "Accept" and then "See Map" to get back to the nav screen. At least it wasn't losing my spot on the map.

Garmin Nuvi 660 won't run off car power after replacing internal battery

I have tried 2 different batteries for my Garmin Nuvi 660. Both will charge up through a USB connection, but the unit will not turn off and on with the car power. Each time I put the old battery back in the unit and it will run a little off the battery and works great with car powering up and down with the ignition. Is there some special battery needed??
