Allstays POI

Has anyone developed a conversion for Allstays POI's. Looks like they're not in delimiter format.

Zumo 395LM (Is there a way to eliminate the Europe map?)

Greetings, 1st time member. This site looks terrific and very helpful.

Q: I purchased a used 395LM. Works great but need help with maps. I successfully upgraded to the 2020.20 map. The issue is that the unit also came with the Europe map installed in the internal drive. The SD card is new and empty.

Regards, Blue Munoz

Garmin Dash Cam - POI's?

I have a Nuvi and use POI loader to load up POI's from here but I was thinking of getting a Garmin Dash Cam and noticed it shows RLC's etc. using Garmin Express. Does anyone know if the POI's from here would work on that unit or only some proprietary thing from Garmin only? In other words, would POI Loader work with that unit?

Garmin: GPSIII / StreetPilot / StreetPilot Color Map / StreetPilot III / StreetPilot 2610 / GPSMAP60CSx / Nuvi 770 / Nuvi 765T / Nuvi 3490LMT * Pioneer: AVIC-80 / N3 / X950BH

GARMIN DEZL 560 LMT GPS for trucks POI

Ok i have seen the post about "Weigh Station POI" but it does not cover what if you dont get the option to pop up in the menu to turn it on or off

This option is visible only if you have proximity points or safety cameras loaded on your device. Proximity points include custom POIs and safety camera databases.

I do but its still not sowing up the option.

Garmin Nüvi 255w - Can it play a sound at the point of making a turn?

I'm torn between two GPS units. I have a Magellan N393M-4300 and a Garmin Nüvi 255w. I like that the voices and vehicle icons are customizable on the Garmin, as well as the speedometer and elevation meter.
I like that the Magellan has lane assist, shows the next two turns ahead. But I especially like that it plays a chime at the actual intersection where you make a turn.

how to factory reset a DriveSmart 50

If possible, how do I do a factory reset on a DriveSmart 50. I updated it to the latest map using GE. When GE stated that the update was completed, I unplug it from the computer and attempt to manual start it but nothing happen. I then plug in to the power card in my car and it still did not come on.

Garmin DriveSmart 65 - Green Icons

Green icons with white hearts are displayed on the map screen with no way to remove them.

Garmin has started a case to correct this.

If you don't want these icons, contact Garmin support and add you name to the list. The more complaints the sooner the problem will be solved.

POI Question (Starbucks in GPX format)


How Long Does It Take For New Businesses To Show Up On City Navigator?

A brand new Casey's General Store opened near me today. I have been watching it, casually, the past few months while it was being built. To their credit, it already shows up on Google Maps. The question in my mind is, how long will it take for it to show up on Garmin City Navigator? Some of us just did the update on CN a matter of days ago.

garmin dash cams

it seems Garmin has new dash cams

GE 6161 is out

Express 6161 is released

Under no circumstances whatsoever, will logic and common sense be tolerated.

Garmin at Costco in Fargo ND

When I was there last week I talked to the Electronics Manager and then the Store Manager as I couldn't find a single Garmin automotive GPSs in the store.

The answer I got is that that store will no longer carry Garmin auto GPSs as their sales were close to zero over the past year.

Address corrections

4 map updates, and the same address that was wrong is still wrong. I told them about it, and they said they would fix it. Right.... Outdated cell phone maps have the address, but Garmin can't figure it out. better start getting their information from different vendors, because this isn't cutting it.

Eco-route HD w/newer vehicle

Anyone using and ECO-Route on a newer vehicle with Auto STOP/START?
It sees the engine shut off and wants to turn off the Garmin. Any way to turn off this function in the Garmin?

Garmin Needs To Make Better Use Of Live Data While Navigating

As I type this, my family and I are on E/B I-94 en route to Milwaukee. As planned, My wife is driving and I am navigating. I am using both the Garmin DriveLuxe 51 and a Sonim XP8 with Google Maps. Google Maps alerts us the slow downs, crashes and speed traps. Garmin is lagging behind. Garmin really needs to start making better use of data available with live internet connectivity.

Poi File help

Hi Everyone,

Unit is a Garmin Drivesmart 61.

I have installed the USA Route 66 POI file from the library.
In my Trip Planner simulation the POI's work OK as I arrive close to the POI position. I get the notification.
Does anyone here know why a couple of POI's per State don't "reiease" even after 254 miles past the POI location.

2019 vs. 2020

Had a conversation about Garmin maps with someone last night
And I found myself having to explain the ‘out of sync with rest of world’ map version naming system.
Other than sayin “That’s the way they do it......”

Is there a reason we are in 2019 and Garmin is in 2020?

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!

RLC Icons Missing

Recently obtained a Garmin Nuvi 2598. Put POIs, including RLC, onto it.

RLCs show on map when doing route simulation, but not in "overhead" or "bird's eye view", even when zoomed in to 200 feet or closer.

Tried turning on/off map layer of "along the way". Other icons toggle on/off, such as businesses in my POIs, but not RLCs.

Mac: Garmin Express - Use Android File Transfer

There was a thread here a month or two back which had a complaint that they could no longer mount the newer GPSes on their Macs and, thus, couldn't load POIs, etc.

Try using Android File Transfer for the Mac. It came right up and let me see the contents of my Garmin DriveSmart 55.
