Screen Capture (Garmin GPS Screen Capture)

My Garmin RV 760 has a screen capture function. Is anybody using this function and if you are for what purpose?

Swapping map files

I have a problem with my Nuvi 755T. I purchased the China map set from Garmin and loaded it. Problem is that it takes too much memory and the next CitySelect update would no longer fit in the memory so I had to add an SD card. Now the City select updates are so big that the memory card only takes the Southern US and Mexico.

Careful if you are headed to Port Everglades (Florida)

This is re-posted from "Keeping the Windmill Alive" since cruisers headed to Ft. Lauderdale (Garmin's "Port Everglades-Northport" POI) may run into it.

POI BMP sizes... A question about view-ablility

I posted a somewhat similar thread about a year ago.....

All the present POI Icons are designed for older units with smaller screens.... and when these .BMP files are used on lager displays, the icon sizes are hard to see....

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!

Plz Help me select a new Garmin...

My current Garmin is a NUVI 40LM.

My new one should have the following features:
6 inch or BIGGER screen,
Ability to use my custom made routes,
Ability to add a backup camera system,

And that's about it as far as must have's...
Any additional features will be welcomed, but the3 above are show stoppers for me.

Thx in advance!

My Garmin 2797LMT is not finding interstate 635 near dallas.

Trying to set a route on my Garmin to mypass Dallas. On my Iphone's Maps app it takes me on interstate 635 that bypasses the main part of Dallas. But when I try to route my Garmin it does not find or know about the interstate 635. As far as my Garmin is concerned -- it does not exist.

Traffic Receiver Update ?

Hi All.

I have 3790 and have a strange problem.

Whenever I turn on the 3790, I get a message that the Traffic receiver needs a software update.

This has been going on for a couple of weeks.

I tried using GarminUpdater several times, but it does not indicate any new traffic receiver updates at all.

Any ides or suggestions ?

Kenwood 890HD

I may be way off base in this forum but maybe someone can help. I have a Kenwood 890HD car receiver
that includes Garmin GPS. Does anyone know how to update maps on this unit? It sure is not as easy as adding maps to my Nuvi 750! I checked a Kenwood Forum but I think they are all asleep! No reply or they don't care.

Thanks for your time.

Nuvi 370 and cyclops


I can't get my Nuvi 370 to sound an alarm when approaching a speed camera from Cyclops. The unit does display the speed camera icon however. The audio notification is turned on.

Anyone has had a similar problem in the past?

Thanks for your help.

Nuvicam for $329

I am kind of surprised that refurbs are available already for the Nuvicam LMTHD, but has them in stock for $329.95.

Map Update Process for 755T and 3597LMTHD

It seems this might be time to adjust some of my old ways of updating maps. Like alandb and possibly others, I have both a 755T and a 3597LMTHD--the latter a recent acquisition where I'm still discovering its many and sometimes subtle differences. I've been keeping the 755T regularly updated using GarminMapUpdater (aka GMU) via the clone method, so no issues there.

2016.20 JCV

Someone had posted that they got the large JCV file. I wonder how?

To my 855 the 24,*** kb file was supplied.
For my 2797 I got the 494,*** kb file.

Nuvi 350 long gone, Nuvi 855LMT, Nuvi 2797LMT, DriveSmart 50 LMT-HD, 3790LMT now my daughters. Using Windows 10. DashCam A108C with GPS.

New Map file won't install properly with Garmin Express

I keep trying to install the new map file and it gets to 73% installed then it starts the reinstall again starting from 50%. It does this every time. I uninstalled and reinstalled Garmin express and it didn't help. I tried using the stand alone map installer with windows 10 and it crashes every time I run it.

2016.20 and Basecamp and questions

I went to use my BaseCamp and it was GONE...
I plugged in Nuvi and opened Garmin Map Updater thinking I could get it there.
Garmin Updater said the 2016.2 map was ready to download so I said ok so I could get BaseCamp.

After all updated I did have BaseCamp. It is 4.4.6, is this the newest one?

Camper 760 and Ecoroute HD

Hi Guys,

I have a Garmin Camper 760 and an Ecoroute HD.

I can't find the menu option on the Camper 760 to link it to the Ecoroute.

Am I being dumb, or are these two not compatible?

Looking forward to your advice.
