Strange Behavior

I'm stopped at a stoplight about 8 blocks north of where I live when my GPS position jumps 0.20 miles almost due West. This position offset persisted the full 20mi to work. I'll see what happens when I go home.

Garmin Power Mount Survey Help

UPDATE: Garmin Models with Power Mounts Is now available as a Garmin FAQ

Since many forum members desire a Powered Cradle Mount I’m in the process of creating a FAQ that will identify those models.
It’s somewhat of a difficult chore since Garmin doesn’t usually list it in their specs and must rely on forum members input.

3597lmthd Upper left hand box for battery strength showing camera

Has anyone ever had a camera symbol appear in the upper
right hand corner where the bars for the battery strength
should appear. It was there when connected to my truck when
running and when running it on the nuvi battery alone.
It disappeared after I sat down here to see if any one
else had this ever happen. I turn it off and on about 3
times and suddenly it was back to normal operations.

2595LMT has gone bad , need recomendations for a new one.

My 2595lmt was acting up and after talking to Garmin we figured out the plug in the back has gotten loose or is not connecting correctly. Would like to hear any recommendations on the newer models that people are using now. I know there are probably better features. Thanks for your help, Jerry

Garmin Monterra As An Automobile Navigator

I am just wondering if anybody here is using a Garmin Monterra as an automobile navigator? I know that there are vehicle mounts for this, but the price has kept me from doing this.

Screen supplier out of business.

Yesterday the new 2016 Can Am Spyder lineup was announced. The models that are factory equipped with a GPS went back to the Zumo 660LM. This is after they had switched from the Zumo 660LM to Zumo 590LM for the 2015 model year. The question was asked why this was.

Need source for USB Mini Male cable with ALL PINS wired

New to POI-F. Old to building prototype electronics. I can't seem to find a USB cable where I can hack off an end and use the molded male end w/cable so I can embed pins X to 5 resistor. Seems like manufacturers are in denial about Pin 4/X. I've built 2 of these cables for my off-road vehicles. Now, I can't find new ones.Ideas anyone?

EcoRoute distance traveled accuracy. Garmin Nuvi 2595

I've had my 2595 and EcoRoute for quite a number of years now and keep it up to date. Never had any real problems with it and it has been thru every state in the lower 48 and 10k kilometers in Europe. Bar the occasional memory full, can not calculate route, or routing errors, and a battery change, it's worked great.

IOS 9 upgrade messed up Smartphone Link app display

I upgraded my iphone 6 to OIS 9 as soon it came out. The only surprise was Garmin Smartphone Link app. Now when you open the app, you cannot see much on the icons, it is all white.

I am surprised that Company like Garmin will not test their app on IOS 9 betas and release an upgrade before hand like other companies did.

2595 Garmin having problems after map download need help

I updated the maps on my 2595 Garmin. When I used it afterwards it works for awhile in the car and then goes back and forth from computer mode(like hooked up to one) to on again. Performed a hard reset no luck. Reloaded the maps did another hard reset same thing. Anyone have an idea on what I need to do? Thanks for your replies, Jerry

2460 not showing roads after 2016.10

This just happened. After updating to 2016.10, there are no roads displayed on the screen. The vehicle icon is there and will leave a 'bread crumb' trail. I can choose a destination and it will appear to route, but it will just show the route line, not any roads. All menus seem to work and the settings/System/myMaps shows 2016.10 and is checked.

GE update

GE update launched now.
Not a problem to install it.
Good luck.

Nuvi 3590 vs. 3597

I wanted to express my views on the 3590 vs. 3597 that may be helpful for those looking at these two Nuvis. When I got my 3590, I was convinced that the only differences between it and the 3597 were the magnetic mount and minor cosmetic differences. My opinion was supported by the many side-by-side table comparisons. I couldn't have been more wrong.

GTM 26 car charger wire identification for 1450LMT

I have a Garmin 1450LMT with traffic receiver built in charger cable model GTM 26.

The mini usb connector is damaged, and I need to replace the connector and solder cables.

I stripped the cable and there are the following colored cables:
- red
- white
- yellow
- green
- shield/ground wire

I need to know which colored wires correspond to 5 pins on the mini usb plug.

Garmin Express Bricked my nuvi!

I hooked my 885t and 765t up to Garmin Express to update the maps last week. The 885t took two tries but that wasn't unusual for me and it worked. When I tried the 765 I got an error message about a half hour into the update and the nuvi now will not boot up nor will the computer recognize it is hooked up to it. I tried Garmin support and they said to try a soft reset.
