I just downloaded Vito's "Rest Areas combined" POI file and noticed two differences between the "old" and "new" copies. I'm not saying the differences are good or bad, they're just different. And by the way, Vito, thanks for taking over a tough POI from Ken. I can't even imagine all the work it must take.
While I wait for a communication to arrive, want to ask if this can be done....
A POI that I use, reports a location to be blocks from where it really is, and since the POI location is set back from the street it's really easy to miss it. I'd like to fix this... at least temporarily, until I can report this to the POI Writer.
Not much in this version of interest to nuvi owners.

Several Gurus around here recommend doing a hard reset after having done a map and or firmware update & personally I follow this suggestion.
I have a little over a dozen routes stored in my trip planner and noticed after the 2016.10 update followed by the hard reset that the unit would route me several different ways than what was previously programmed.
My Garmin RV 760 has a screen capture function. Is anybody using this function and if you are for what purpose?
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.
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.

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....

This is the discussion thread for questions, comments, suggestions, etc. for the following FAQs:
My current Garmin is a NUVI 40LM.
It has lifetime maps, but I would like an upgrade.
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!
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.
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 ?
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.
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.
I am kind of surprised that refurbs are available already for the Nuvicam LMTHD, but theGPSstore.com has them in stock for $329.95.
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.
