1390 dead?

My old 1390 gave up. Every so often, I will get it out and at least power it up or charge. This time there was a second of Garmin showing on the screen, then dark. It is not being seen by desk top or my laptop. Screen is black and tried several hookups. Nothing.
No loss here. Didn't use it anymore.
Is that what happens when they die?

Nuvi 650 does not show all places

Hello all,

RV 760 Saved Tracks

I have a RV 760 and have turned on Travel History in the device settings. Went on an 18 day trip, and tried to download the tracks into Basecamp. However on the last day showed in the listing. Does it over write the data every day?

sd card

Does the San Disk Ultra 16GB Ultra Micro SDHC UHS-I/Class 10 Card work on nuvie 67lm

DriveSmart 50 not displaying roads/streets

For the past couple of days, my DriveSmart 50 is intermittently not displaying minor streets/roads. They show when it initially starts, but disappear a few seconds later.

Any ideas out there in Garminland?

Recent software updates for nuvi 2757 LMT

Hello All,

It's been a long time since I was last active, but am diving in again.

About 1.5 weeks ago I hooked up the GPS unit noted in the subject and Garmin Express told me that there was a software update and a map update. The software update downloaded and applied in less than 3 minutes while the maps take hours (on DSL speeds) as per usual.

Drive models and red light cameras

Has anyone got any experience of the new Drive models and 3rd party red light/speed cameras? There are reports on a UK forum that Garmin has removed that ability from their Drive models and that they only support Garmin speed cameras?

Drive 60LMT

I've purchased a new Drive 60LMT and I am looking for new vehicles and voices like I have on my older Nuvis but I have been unable to find them on the Garmin site. In the past I simply went to the Garmin Garage and found what I needed. I can no longer find the garage. Is it gone or has it moved? Will the Drive 60 accept the same options as the Nuvi?


Garmins interfacing with phones, post your experience

I've had some disappointing results in my my cell phone tests that I wanted to share and see if you guys had similar results.

NuviCam - all latest updates


iPhone 6s running 10.2.1

Bluetooth calling works perfect

Voice Command - Phone - Phone Book works perfect

Smartphone Link - Disconnects, then causes issues with Bluetooth calling


Garmin Dash Cams

Has anyone tried the new Garmin dash cams? The product includes some interesting and innovative new features. Although a separate unit, it seems like an improvement over the Nuvicam.

Proximity alerts

I have done this a few years ago. I will use POI loader to load rest areas, certain gas stations, red light and speed cameras. Maybe a few others. I'm not sure what I used last time.
What is the general consensus on the proximity alert distances?
What do you use and maybe a reason.

Anyone else having trouble connecting to garmin servers

Is anyone else having trouble connecting with the garmin servers. Just got the Garmin DriveDelux 51-lmt-s just a few days ago. Connected fine wireless and wired. Downloaded update to the operating system with wireless and then came inside and updated maps using wired method. Have connected numerous times since then both wireless and wired. Yesterday, no connection at all.

Map updated, yet GE reports 660 still needs Map update

I did the latest map upgrade on SD Card for my 660, and afterward the new map works good, but GE still says I have yet to update map.....
Though I have.....

Seeing that after I download map onto SD Card, I have to re-name the 3 map names, in order to have them work from the SD card.....

Topo maps for Garmin

Has anybody here found the Garmin maps "Lacking" in certain areas? (This may have been discussed before)

Route more persistant on backtracking when Toll Roads enabled....

I normally do not leave Toll Roads enabled... and with the device set that way.... (Toll Road NOT used)....

I also drive the same routes often....

How to turn off just Live Traffic for Smartphone Link

The Live Traffic portion of the Smartphone Link seems to consume a large amount of data (0.5Gb for a 2 hour trip). Can I turn of just the Live Traffic and still have the hands free phone work?

GPS text and call

Is there a Garmin that will let you answer a phone call without having to tap the screen? Is there a Garmin that will read out a text message?
Is there a Garmin that will do both?

Worst Garmin update ever (routing is terrible now)

I don't know if it was the map (City Navigator NA NT 2018.1) or the software (4.40) for my Garmin 58 LMT that ruined it?
