Garmin U.S.A. iOS iPhone App Store Update 2.11.2 Released!

I see Garmin has just released an update to their Garmin USA offline map application to 2.11.2 - says "We have further improved the stability of the app. Enjoy your drive!" I wonder what goodies are in store!

Just had my 3597LMTHD stolen last night :(

What a bummer, really upset at the moment...

Anyone know of a good sale for a replacement?

The Ogre

Trip Planner App / Nuvi

I have had numerous Garmin Zumo units. I now purchased a 2598 for my car. I enjoy creating custom routes on Basecamp for the scenery. When I used custom routes on the Zumo 550, I would just start the route and it would take me from point to point (via point or way point).

Garmin Express 5.1.1 for PC

And now it's 5.1.1 ...

Garmin began rolling out Garmin Express v5.1.1 for the PC on 1/17/2017. If you would like to upgrade to the latest version, Check for Updates to Express on the Settings page within the Express application. This version includes the following changes:

• Fixed an issue where Express could crash when attempting to add a device

Where there's a will ... there's a way ... DriveSmart50LMT-D, Nuvi 2508LMT-D, 1490LMT, 1310, Montana 650T, Etrex 20

POI images

The default POI image seems to be a blue dot. I see there are a lot of images available but none (that I can find) that are 'dots" similar to the default but different colors. Can I make my own.. and how big is it?

How Many Garmin Friction Mounts Are There?

When I bought me first Garmin StreetPilot years ago, it came with a portable friction mount like this:

Then, somewhat more recently, I recall hearing that a newer style was out:

Now, on Ebay, I see this style:

Garmin models with integrated traffic receivers.

Does anyone have a list of Garmin models that have the traffic receiver built in (using the TA-20 power adapter as the antenna instead of using one of the GTM external power adapter/receivers)? I don't recall ever seeing such a list here or on the Garmin FAQs, and I think this could be a good item to add to the POI Factory FAQs.

GPS off by 100 feet?

Anyone ever run into an issue where their GPS is off by a few hundred feet? I was driving around the other day and I showed up about 100-200 feet due north of where I was.

What Garmin Smartwatches Are Compatible With The Garmin DriveLuxe 51 LMT-S?

I was looking at the Garmin website reading about the Garmin DriveLuxe 51 LMT-S. It states that is is compatible with Garmin smartwatches. Does anybody happen to know what Garmin smartwatches are compatible with it?

garmin 2689 (slow to pick up traffic info)

I recently received a 2689... I have been using a 2595--- my question has to do with traffic reception.... it seems that the 2689 is much slower to pick up traffic info???? and the power cord is different from the 2595... any experience?

garmin express 5.4 (JK)

Went to update to 5.1 and got 5.4 so I guess that's the latest!


Connected Cars

Garmin recently announced they will discontinue production of FM and HD traffic receivers for their new automotive GPS models. Live traffic, via the Smartphone Link app, will be the only traffic service available on newer units.

Garmin inReach Explorer+ Vs. Garmin inReach SE+ And Legacy DeLorme InReach Explorer Vs. DeLorme InReach SE

I know that the acquisition of DeLorme by Garmin was reported here last year. More recently I have been looking at both the legacy DeLorme offering and the new Garmin offerings.

My Garmin 680 has stopped speaking through the internal speaker. It works through ear buds and through the vehicle radio. Any help would be great.

3597 pop-ups

How do you hide (get rid of) the unasked for POI,s?

In some areas gas stations, restaurants and banks were filling up my screen by changing banks to rest areas helped.

I really don't want them on the screen.


GTM60 3D cable replacement.

Bad news. Had my Nuvi stolen. Good news, police caught the guy going through another car in the parking lot. Got it back, except for the cable.
Saved a bundle and ordered one from China on 11/28/16. I wonder where it's at? shock Lesson learned.
