Can I train My Garmin

Most of the members who have been on POI Factory for a while have read this in the past.

For new members or anyone who may have missed it. Garmin says you can train your device. As for all things certain limitations are there.A reset of the GPS most likely would remove all the data it has learned.

Can I train my Garmin to provide better estimated times of arrival (ETA)?

Garmin Nuvi 3597 Picture Viewer

Maybe i missed it but why did Garmin hide the picture viewer in the 3597 over in the volume control page

Traffic info flawed sometimes on NuviCam

Hello Friends,

I am not sure how many members in this forum own NuviCam. Secondly, how many are using NuviCam with Smart Link app for traffic.

Install city navigator Europe NT to computer

I have downloaded city navigator Europe NT from Garmin and it installed on my Nuvi 1490. I can only access the maps on this install if I have the unit plugged into the computer. Is there a way to install the map on the computer and not have to have the unit plugged into the computer?

Garmin updates slow running

When using Garmin Express to update maps takes a very long time. Is anyone else having this problem

Cars With Garmin Factory Installed

Does anyone have a list of production cars that use Garmin software for their factory installed GPS units?

All messed up (No unlocked maps)

After doing a hard reset I tried to use Garmin Xpress. It gives me an error and must close. Now what? My internal card is just about full, how do I start from scratch?

Map install says "No unlocked maps were found for this device."

When I say messed u...I screwed up my back up and it wants to skip files. So how do I do day one?

Black out NUVI 2595

Yesterday all was good. Today the NUVI just started shutting off. Turn it back on and goes through the Logo, load maps, and if I hit the acceptance button shutsw off. If I leave it the route continues for a while then shuts off again. Time for a hard reset?
Any ideas what's happening?

New Maps Update

I have a Garmin Nuvi 2699 LMTHD. When I updated the maps in early January 2016 it sometimes now will show the opposite direction and tell me to turn opposite of the way I should go and turn.This usually happens when I first put in the search and it calculates. Has anyone else had this problem. Didn't seem to do it before the update. Any ideas?

Why do I want POI files? (Zumo 590)

when my Zumo 590 has an "up ahead" feature?
Apologies if that sounded rude, it wasn't meant to. It's just the short cut of the question and I'm new to POI.

Auto Destination?

Our new 2598 seems to randomly pick a recent destination and display driving time in the top banner. A neat feature, but annoying if you're not going there and want to see upcoming streets. Anyway to disable it? I can't find one.

Garmin 2797 LMT

I recently purchased a Garmin 2797 LMT and really like the new features, a real upgrade from my NUVI 54. I am disappointed though with the traffic feature. Its not intuitive, its very slow, inaccurate, and on a trip through Orlando on I-4 it only notified of traffic after I was at a dead stop!

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting Holy Shit...What a Ride!

Does the new maps update also updates or changes Route calculation?

I updated new maps on my devices. I have noticed that after the map update on my Nuvicam, it calculates routes differently now. For example, while going to work in the morning, on highway 401 Eastbound, it used to ask me to take Dufferen Street exit but I always take next exit Allen Road. Now after the map updates, it started asking me to take Allen Road exit now.

Yesterday I was in Costco store in Woodbridge Ontario. I saw NuviCam listed for $469.99. This price is better than what I paid last year in July.

Garminfone Map Updates

I have been thinking about resurrecting one of my Garminfones for use as a GPS in one of my vehicles. Does anybody happen to know if the maps can still be updated or did Garmin discontinue ALL support of the Garminfones some time ago?

Dashboard Nuvicam vs Nuvi 3590

I recently got a Nuvicam which I really like except the dashboard is limited to a few setting - MPH and Time to Arrival (with only 2 data points). I really liked my old Nuvi 3590 which had 4 data point - speed, time to arrival, time at arrival and distance to arrival. Does anyone know if you can do that with the NuviCam? Haven't found it anywhere in the settings.
