Are Audio Speed Warnings Possible on nuvi 2789?

When I am traveling with my nuvi 2789, I will get an audio warning (a beep) when I near a school zone. And when I accidently exceed the speed limit, the actual speed box adjacent to the posted speed box will take on a reddish-orange border to alert me that I have exceeded the posted speed limit.

Updating Nuvicam?

Anybody know if nuvicam can be updated to include some of the new garmin functionality, such as upcoming road warnings, messaging alerts, etc.?

Format and naming conventions for speed zone alerts POI's

Trying to follow numerous instructions that seem to contradict.. or in any case not working for me. I am trying to get notifications for school zones in Edmonton Ab. I understand (?) that some folder names automatically assign alarms / notification but so far all I get are icons on my map. I was under the impression that naming it Redlight would automatically assign properties to it.

How Import POIs into Basecamp?

I want to import custom POIs, into Basecamp. Can you provide some guidance?
Basecamp has a custom POI function so Im assuming this can be done but the function in Basecamp is grayed out.

Garmin maps update help

Hi there,

Custom POI's in Saved thread

I have a strange situation in my Nuvi 2797.

In my "Saved" thread/folder there should only be two subjects.

1. "All Saved Places"
2. "Address" (Maybe this should not be there either)

I now have two more there which are from my Custom POI's.
1. Custom POIs: Americas Best Value Inns
2. Custom POIs: Super Eight

Traffic receiver on 3597 does not work anymore...

I have Nuvi 3597LMTHD which came with HD traffic receiver. Since I am in Canada, there is no HD traffic. I subscribed to Smartlink App traffic. Today, after long time I tried FM traffic using the built in receiver. Unfortunately it does not work anymore. At the top left side of the screen I see the status as "Receiver disconnected" and the main screen with the following message:

Just ordered a 3597LMTHD

Will my 1450 car power cord with traffic work?

Will the same 1450 mount work?

Thanks

POI files

It's been years since I loaded POI files onto a NUVI that I am lost in how to do it. I get as far in the POI Loader where it asks where to put the new data. Everything I enter gives the error that 'there are no data files in that folder. Please specify a folder that contains at least one file with a .csv or .gpx extension.' (Using windows 10).' I have a refurbed 3597.

School zone alerts in Edmonton

I am on a search for POI's that deal with School zone alerts in Edmonton. They (alerts) have not yet entered the Garmin Data base and the city is very actively enforcing the zones with cameras. One ~$150.00 fine is too much.. going 44 km/ hr in a 30 zone!
I see POI's for red light cameras but nothing for school zones.. Anyone??

GPX and GDB files

I have two laptops I use. One is running Windows 10 and all is well. One crashed and I had to reload starting with Windows 8 and then installed Windows 10, the newest version.

Now the one I just installed W10 on will run the installed BaseCamp and MapSource and I can use either program to load a GPX or GDB file from within BC or MS.

I do not see any way to download sounds. Granted I am 75 so fog takes place of brain.

Thanks in Advance

Did I miss something

Just fired up GE and it told me that my 2797 had a software update version 5.40. Did the update but I thought Version 5.40 came out a while back.

Using Shaping Points

I created a route with Trip Planner on my Garmin 3597 and purposely did the following to see how the unit would react.

I placed a shaping point close ( + - 50 feet) to the interstate I was on and as I was approaching the unit told me to exit as expected.
