Garmin talk


Nuvi 2595 and Galaxy S5

Up until recently, I used by blue tooth in my car to handle all the hands free stuff, but decided to change to my Garmin 2595 due to the ability to get up to the minute traffic and weather when linked to my cellphone through the Garmin app.

Garmin DriveSmart vs. Nuvi Volume

I have noticed that the Garmin DriveSmart series (I have the 70LMT) volume is not as loud as the Garmin Nuvi 2798LMT model was. Anyone else agree that the DriveSmart volume is not as loud as the Nuvi line? When driving with road noise I have difficulty hearing the instructions as well as I used to particularly considering it's a $400 GPS.

No Data Available

This just popped up on the Nuvi 765T when I press "Where To" and then press address or points of interest, the new update map is on a sd card. Any thoughts or fixes for this or its time to bury the unit.

Accidentally formatted Garmin Nuvi 760

Hi all, I recently formatted my Garmin on my laptop thinking it would help with the update bricking the systemand can't find a way to get the software back onto the system. I've searched extensively but I have no backup as I just inherited the device from my dad and he hasn't used it since 2007. Is there any resource to get the software files so I can copy and paste them into the device?

Nuvi 855 gone nuts !!!

Yesterday was the second time that this happened. I had a route to destination set up and was following it.

Garmin Smart Link IOS update to 2.1.3

Garmin has updated their IOS Smart Link app to version 2.1.3 (1312) few days ago. As per release notes, the new update fixed some bugs. There is no major or minor change. Not sure what was fixed because it still works same way. It stopped opening automatically when you start Nuvicam.

Shy on my new garmin does it give me a foursquare result and then all the other results? What is a foursquare result anyways?

Garmin suction cup

I've put this into the Garmin thread because I consider it my Home thread, but it is equally applicable to any suction cup.

I think my Nuvi 855 is probably 10 years old by now. I've found the suction cup losing it's hold for some time.

What I did yesterday was to thoroughly clean the suction cup with rubbing alcohol. (Instead of drinking it ,LOL)

issue with my Nuvi 2595

My Nuvi has recently started to "re-boot" when I plug in the car charging/traffic cord. This happens several times while driving.
It then goes into the 'computer' mode and then off again and back to GPS mode. Very frustrating when driving in unfamiliar areas.
It works fine when not plugged in.

Has anyone else had this issue? Do I need a new cord or a new unit?

Garmin just released Samantha voice version 2.30. The only thing that I can find is they have changed Pronunciation Improvements.

Alternative mount idea

Greetings Garmin folks. I wanted to share what I believe to be a successful alternative to suction cup mounts. I have a cd slot mount that I have been able to install vertically in the center dash console using the gap between the console side and the face of the console. I actually used in the CD slot of my GTI but when I leased a new one, they no longer have the CD slot in the console.

FAVORITES/Saved Places

Can any one help me. I have a 50LMTHD GPS. It is only a few weeks old. My Favorites or any saved files will not show. If I search by name, the name will appear, But I can't get the list of name to appear. i am assuming that it is a setting problem.But which setting.

3790LMT; 2595LMT; 3590LMT, 60LMTHD

Does anyone sell replacement suction mounts for 2689?

a couple months ago, prior to operation, a slight crack in the suction mount developed, and therefore the mount would not stick.

I used some velcro pieces to mount it, and other than it not being a firm mount, it has stayed on the window, though it doesn't look as nice....

Has anyone seen the mount assembly separately sold?

And if so, could you post a link?


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!


I want to transfer the Trip Planner file from one GPS to Another. How do I do that. Transfer from a 3590 to a 60LMTHD Drive Smart. What files do I look for in 3590.

3790LMT; 2595LMT; 3590LMT, 60LMTHD


I have a DriveSmart 60LMTHD. How do I remove the Screen Shot Camera from the main screen.

3790LMT; 2595LMT; 3590LMT, 60LMTHD


Ok. I just received my 60LMTHD GPS. I went to to get a manual. There is several manuals, but not for the 60LMTHD. Any suggestion. Also, Do the battery have to be fully charge before I can register it?

Garmin Oregon 700 Series

I received an email within the last hour about the Garmin Oregon 700 series. Perhaps it will replace the Garmin Monterra.

Question On The Navigational Voice?

On a recent trip, where I had put in a route, the navigational voice kept announcing every milestone/route/intersection along the route. Can this constant announcement be disabled in some manner? Thank you.
