Zumo POI question (customize the Up Ahead list)

Good afternoon..

Just got a new Garmin Road Tech Zumo 590, and am struggling with how the POI files work. Having had a TomTom previously, I find it very different.

Older Nuvi 760 with Smartphone Link App

I think I know the answer, but maybe someone knows a work around.

Can the Nuvi 760, with Bluetooth, work with the Smarphone Link app? Would like to look up destinations on the phone and have them picked up on the Garmin for Navigation.

2 updates both Chinese Audio files..... How to opt out?

GE reports that I have two updates available... When I check to see what they are (Garmin is in the car....) it reports that there are 2 Chinese audio files...
I'd be installing them if I knew Chinese derelicts, (Which I don't)....

My 2689LMT has plenty of space left (compared to my 660, which has as many files removed as possible) Luckily, the Chinese files are not available for the 660.

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!

Just when I thought the Apple wearables are going to take over the digital world ...

Garmin is still hanging in there strong with their wearable products. Maybe the prediction of the demise of stand-alone GPSRs is a bit premature.

Can't load multiple POI databases with POIloader

I"m trying to load:
Rest Stops
Low Clearance (from

I can load any one of those to my Garmin DriveSmart 60LMT and see them in Basecamp.

Each is under a top directory thusly:

Each has a .bmp file and the walmart and rest stops have a .wav file. The root file names are identical.

Replacement for nuvi 2597

Any suggestions for a replacement for a nuvi 2597 (similiar capabilities)?

Is my garmin 50 ready to be recycled?

I have a Garmin 50 that only displays "Garmin" upon startup and then nothing else. When I connect it to the windows 10 computer it is not recognized. After reading other posts I tried Cure3 and that resulted in an error which said "not a garmin format". I can't do anything else with it. Should I buy another one?

Wav file(dog park)

Is there a wav file for dog park thanks in advance.

Hiding unnecessary icons

The blind factory preloaded icons on my Garmin DriveSmart 60LMTHD are irritating me. Those gas and restaurant icons without brand icon. Is there a way to hide them? I do not need to see that a restaurant is coming if I do not know what brand. I do not need to know that a gas station is coming if I have full tank. The icons cover streets what I do not like.

Nuvicam software update 3.50

Garmin has updated Nuvicam's software to version 3.50 few days ago.

GE update reports: "Un-Supported 16 Bit Application"

Went to Update GE today (From V to V4.4.0.0)...and I got this Message:

(Path) GarminExpressInstaller.exe cannot start or run due to incompatibility with 64 Bit versions of Windows.
Please contact the Software Vendor and ask if a 64 bit Windows Compatible version is available.

I'm not doing anything different than ever before!!!

I finally sent it as a bug to Garmin Folks...

Garmin Nuvi 3597 Custom Dashboard & Auto Zoom Disable

I recently set up a Garmin Nuvi 3597 for my mother in law and set up on for my sister in law yesterday. Anyway, that made me wonder what my fellow POI members are doing in this regard. If you have a Garmin Nuvi 3597:

-Do You Use The Custom Dashboard?

-If So, What Do You Select In Each Field?

-Do You Like And Use Auto Zoom Or Have You Disabled It?

For now, my selections are:

Changes to settings when upgrading to 2017.30

Ok all you Garmin experts. I have done a lot of map updates, and I have never had the update change my system settings. When I upgraded to this map right before a trip to North Georgia and Tennessee, I wished that I had not have done the upgrade. It changed all my settings, voice and preferences.

What would a good replacement for my missing 2595 LMT BE.?

I'm STILL KICKING MYSELF BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS. It was fun but not a necessity. I miss it already. Stick with what little I knoe or try a new adventure?

What's the best way to handle a 'correction'...?

eg... I have noticed a POI for the Dunkin Donuts in Crofton, MD is about 1/2 mile off... I'm ASSuming I can go to the proper spot, save the proper GPS coordinates, then correct the Excel spreadsheet at home and save... but that's selfish... should I detail and send that correction to the most recent author...?
