We all know that our units are not accurate in the sense of getting us to our destinations faster or even with better fuel mileage. We can all relate to this by using our units at home. Generally speaking we can get to our destination faster than our Garmin's can. Garmin units don't know rush hours and other variables. It learns? sometimes...lol.
GPS City is offering a Garmin Nuvi 2598 LMT refurb for $99.95 with free shipping.

Firefox just automatically updated to 43.0.1 and it disabled Garmin Communicator. The Garmin website has a note that says "Firefox No Longer Supports this Plugin
The page you are trying to access no longer works with this web browser. To help, Garmin has created a secure shortcut to open the Internet Explorer web browser on your computer and take you safely to the Garmin.com page you need."
I just want to say that the refurbished 3597LMTHD is available at thegpsstore.com for 199.99 right now. My wife ordered me one for Christmas and it came in 3 days no problems!
I didn't see this posted anywhere else, but forgive me if it is a repost. It's not too late to order for the holidays!
Seems like a pretty good deal at Buydig.com for a Garmin 55 Refurb with a 1 year warranty
can you down load twisty roads on to a 350 garmin gps.
Garmin says you can not. they have twisty roads on 390 and 590
Well, the LCD on my 15 year old eTrex is failing. Several dead rows of pixels. The new eTrex10 is fairly inexpensive, but I'm not sure it's really worth getting a new eTrex considering I have Google Maps and a GPS in my phone.
I have seen strange issue with Starbucks icons when using Starbucks POI file. The icon shows up for certain locations and does not show for some. I could not figure out the reason. I will appreciate your advice.
I am using Nuvicam. Even if I navigate to certain Starbucks locations, the icon will not display.
Had anyone owned a Garmin certified refurbished? Any reliability issue? I bought 2689 refurbished with discount and wondering if it worths the hassle down the road. It provides the same warranty as the new one.
Worth $20 or should I buy HD traffic for $60? Thanks.
This topic came up on another thread http://www.poi-factory.com/node/45474 about Real Voice with Real Directions compared to other voices that only offered Real Directions.Didn't want to get the other thread off on another topic.So I started this one for discussion.
I wouldn't have thought a my Nuvi55 could tell which lane I was in -- it's just a few feet to one side -- but I think it does. Is this right? The situation:
Because of that it will tell you to go 3/4 of the mile to the next light, make a U turn and come back.3/4 of a mile. When you go to Home Depot or any shopping centers where you got a six lane highway, there is a center divider for left turns to shopping areas 99% of the time.Garmin had NOT programmed their devices as of now. Stone age programmers working for Garmin. A major joke I say.
I'm having trouble finding a battery for my garmin 885. Anyone know of a place I could order one?
May be available for other models as well.
Update for Mac OS X Garmin Express appeared for me today. Updated with no trouble.
It seems that the Murphy Fuel POI file hasn't updated since 2008.
This is serious POI file for RVers and others.
The existing file is very incomplete. It only has locations at Walmart as of 2008. There are many other Murphy locations than those as walmart.
This a very important file for RVs. Is anyone maintaining it?
I have 2 3590LMT's. My older one (a refurb unit) has issues with powering up about 20-25% of the time with a white screen. Unplugging it and waiting for it to power off generally allows it to start normally. It also has issues dropping audio level randomly and sometimes a stutter in the speech (usually when approaching a turn so that the instructions cannot be understood!!).
Well I finally upgraded my Nuvi 660 to a Nuvi 2699 so that is where my base for comparison comes from. Please realize that I have just had it a couple days so there are lots of features I have not had time to try out.
Best Specification include:
1. Screen Size is excellent. Going from a 4.3" to a 6" display is incredible.
After a couple years of no firmware updates, or map updates. I installed Garmin Express 126.96.36.199 last week (updated to 188.8.131.52 today). Updated the NA maps, and the software on the nuvi to Ver. 8.20 - From Version 7.50 - November 27, 2012
Not sure if the GPS firmware updated last week or not? From the nuvi "About" page - My installed Version 2.28.12
