Garmin BaseCamp and Google Earth woes

One of the great features of Garmin BaseCamp was the ability to see the POI or route in Google Earth, however with latest updates of GE and GE Pro, this will no longer work with BaseCamp.

Google Earth has discontinued support for BaseCamp.

Older versions of Google Earth still work, however the next time you open Google Earth the newer version has updated automatically.

2797 Charging Problems

Using 2797 with GMT 36 Traffic Receiver USB cable that came with the unit. I'm now getting the "use the supplied cable" message though I am using that cable. The unit won't charge. I'm wondering which part is bad (2797 unit, small mount unit with USB connection that plugs into the back of the 2797, or the GMT 36 USB/cigarette lighter cable).

BaseCamp is 4.5.0 now available and can be downloaded here:

Here Update

I recall that Here updated its maps weeks before Garmin released 2016.1 (if not a couple months). I checked today on my iPhone, and Here just had another update to its map software.

Behavior with both Smartphone Link and HD Traffic

I have a unit with the HD traffic feature. If I also purchase the Live Traffic subscription, how does the unit deal with the two sources? Does it combine them? Does it give priority to one over the other? Do I have to turn one off and select the other?
From reading posts on the subject, it sounds like there is advantages to having both.

How can I get it?

Multiple Maps on RV 760

I had previously owned a 1490LMT but recently purchased a RV 760LMT for traveling in an RV. In the past, when I performed a map update, I would retain the previous map so if I had issues then I just select the previous map on the device. This was easy with the 1490 as I would change the three files (*.img, *.gma, *.unl) to something like "gmapsupp" and then install the new maps.

CN Europe NT 2016.10 update

I have two Garmin devices with CN Europe NT maps:
- nuvi 775 came preloaded with both NA and EU maps.
- nuvi 3790T came preloaded with NA map. I bought the EU map on DVD and installed it on a micro SD card.
I purchased Lifetime Mapupdates for both devices and maps.

For many years I have updated the maps and used these devices in Europe successfuly.

Troubleshooting hint ("switch USB Cable")

I installed the 2016.10 maps earlier today on my 3590LMT using GE with no difficulty. I then decided to make a copy of the system and JCV files to a backup flash drive using Windows Explorer like I always do. The file transfer would start out fine and after about 30 seconds, I was getting "file not found" error messages and Windows Explorer then showed that EVERY file in my 3590 was gone.

The Ogre

2016.10 happy with it

Took my 2797 out for a run today. So far I'm very happy with the new map. I even have to admit I kinda like the split screen vs the full screen JCV. It kicked in where I've never seen it do so.

Aside from showing outdated POI stores, gas stations and restaurants, the actual map is getting better every time.

65LMT missing traffic file

Anyone help please? My original 65LMT bought 10/14 went totally dead. Support sent me a refurbished one and after updating, when I put it in my vehicle it came on and said "Missing traffic file, contact Garmin support", which I did. They sent me another refurbished and I am getting the same message. Any ideas suggestions?

GPS Map 76

Found my ancient GPS Map 76 while going through some stuff.
Put new batteries in it and, voila!, it works.
Not as fast as my Nuvi 2797LMT but it's serviceable.
Probably have run it in 10 years or more.
Amazing !!

Under no circumstances whatsoever, will logic and common sense be tolerated.

My Nuvi 660 Has POI File Limit of 20

I decided to do some maintenance on my POI files on both my Nuvi 660 and 2460 and came across an issue on the 660 that has baffled me after spending countless hours in seeking the answer without finding one.

I have a total of 29 POI’s, 12 of them are individual POI’s, and one POI contains 17 (mostly stores) are in one POI file.

New GPS (to me) 2689LMT

Got an impulse to look into replacing my still very functional 265WT with something newer. I get this impulse about once a year but until now, hadn't found a replacement that made me bite. Reading a few comments here on POI-Factory whet my appetite and over the weekend, I settled on the 2689LMT.
