Garmin talk


By passing a stop on a route.

I had created a route in basecamp and imported it into my nuvi 2595 which contained numerous locations for rest areas, gas stations, restaurants, and hotels along this route.

Nuvi 2460LMT Repair

I have a Nuvi 2460LMT with a damaged screen. I have removed the damaged screen and ordered a complete replacement.

If members who have replaced GPS screens would share suggestions and/or instructions it would be most appreciated. For example: Is it necessary to transfer the old “rubber” tape to the new screen? Is calibration required?

Nuvi Line Being Replaced

Garmin has announced a new line of automotive GPS units called Drive. For detail see:

The Nuvi has had a great run since the first 350 was released in 2005 but it looks like that run has come to an end.

Nuvi 350, 760, 1695LM, 3790LMT, 2460LMT, 3597LMTHD, DriveLuxe 50LMTHD, DriveSmart 61, Garmin Backup Camera 40 and TomTom XXL540s.

Large JCV file

I was wondering if Garmin still assigns the large junction view to a specific map update.

I was hoping I could use the current large JCV file with a new map update.

In the past someone has been volunteering to load the update for downloading but that is hard to count on going forward.



I know my unit is old, I think 5? (2450LMT)

Sometimes I wonder, why does it not recalculate, meaning we've veered off its suggested course for already 1 min, and it's tracking us properly, but does not reroute...

We still prefer it over the factory NAV, but I think Garmin will go the way of the dodo bird eventually....

Data Errors in CSV Files for Garmin - POI Loader Chokes

Hey all. I've been gone for a long while but I got a new Nuvi and was trying to put some POIs on it. I've got some CSV files I obtained from a website, and the POI Loader doesn't like something about them; it says there are data errors on say line 57 and it won't go past that. I've fixed the obvious things I can see but I'm still getting the errors.

Garmin Real Directions, does it really works?

A few days ago I saw this feature on a Garmin GPS and I was wondering if it really works? I have doubts since sometimes Garmin tries to lead me to a POI that doesn't exist anymore (e.g. gas station). Your feelings about this feature?

A new one on me

As I was getting ready to leave for our Christmas gatherings, I turned on the Garmin to set the destination it came up with "Memory Full".

Multiple alerts for POI Factory speed camera locations

I frequently pass a pair of speed cameras, one pointed each direction on the two-way street. I begin to be notified at the appropriate distance before the first one (the one I need to worry about), but then receive FIVE MORE notifications (three per camera).

Unable to D/l Full NA Map

I have a Nuvi 650 + 8gb SD card. I d/l to a flash drive that has a Garmin directory containing GarminDevice.xml. I connect the flash drive (not Nuvi) and run MapUpdater. It connects to Garmin, recognizes the Nuvi, and tells me the Nuvi is limited to under 2g so I cannot get the NA map. I settle for the states map and it d/l fine and I can install it on my Nuvi.

Safe and Happy New Years 2016

Will power cord included with Nuvi 2689LMT support traffic

The 2689LMT model I looked at did not have the rectangular box on the power cord like my 1450LMT does. Will this power cord support the traffic right out of the box?

Nuvi 3790LMT will not display traffic

Hi All,
Happy Holidays!

For quite some time, and through a few upgrades, I do not get a traffic icon on the 3790LMT. I tried resets as well.

Has anyone experienced a similar situation and found any resolve?

On my older nuvi660, you could see on the charger cord if the radio was receiving traffic data. On the power cord for the 3790, all you get is a red power light.
