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Aside from showing outdated POI stores, gas stations and restaurants, the actual map is getting better every time.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

Smart Link Bluetooth Problems with NuviCam

Hello everyone,

So I got the NuviCam for almost 2 months now. The problem I have is auto connecting the Smart Link app with NuviCam. I have to connect it manually every single time I get into the car. If I step out of the car for one minute, it will disconnect and never get reconnected automatically again.

I am using iPhone 6 and my NuviCam got the latest update.

Garmin nuvi 3597 Trip Log Behavior

A few months back I got tried of the constant re-boots of my nuvi 855 and purchased a nuvi 3597. One of the features I used most on the nuvi 855 was the trip log (current gpx) for completing business travel reports. The nuvi 855 recorded all travel (start to finish) in the trip log, independent of "routing" or non-"routing", all of the time. Exactly what I needed to document my business travel.

3597 Still Gives Error Message About Power Cord

After several firmware updates, my 3597 still gives me error messages stating that I have a power cord that will not charge the Garmin. I have a GTM-60 cord. I use the Traffic feature everyday on the way home. "Log Jams" are a common occurrence on I-64.

Garmin Repair Recommendations?

I have an old, Garmin Nuvi 205W that I've taken pretty good care of over the years, but recently the touchscreen went screwy until it stopped responding altogether. I tried recalibrating the touchscreen, and reinstalled updates a couple of times, but it quickly stopped responding again.
