Time Zone Map Update V16.02

Has anyone had any experience with the subject update? i.e. installed and no problems surfaced etc?

Custom Categories (or all categories) (show along route)

I have a Nuvi 66 LMT.
I have a route say from HOME to Washington DC, I have a Custom Category called "Military Bases". I want these bases (all) to show along my route. How do I do it? In both "Where To" and "Trip Planner".

Second time this has happened

After loading GE I connected my 2689 to GE to see if it would find a new map... but instead it 'took off' and loaded new firmware... V7.5 in the 2689LMT...
Which is fine, but I wanted to back it up first...

This is the second time that this has happened... Fortunately, no problems occurred...

Does anyone have any info on what is new with this firmware??

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

GE is out .

Anyone using Foursquare?

My new GPS came with Foursquare, and I'm trying to figure out why I would want to use it. I'm not a member of the Digital Elite, but to me the app just doesn't seem very useful, the postings almost look like a dog marking its territory.

Anyone here using it, and if so for what?


wav files

I wonder, are there any Garmin GPS devices currently made that are mp3 capable? My 3590LM can only use .wav files. Every file I get from "sounds" section are in mp3 format, so I have to convert. I have a couple I will try to send in .wav format that are really good. One is for the "offbeat tourist attraction" poi, and the other is for "rest stops".

Unless you are the lead sled dog, the view never changes. I is retard... every day is Saturday! I still own the StreetPilot c340, and the Garmin Nuvi 765t, but upgraded to the NO "recalculating", 3590 LMT.

Time for an upgrade...

After six or seven years of living (happily!) with my old Nuvi 255W I've purchased one of the 'manufacturer refurbed' 2699LMT-HD receivers. There are a number of sellers of this GPS on eBay and elsewhere for $200.

Downloading Custom Sound Files

When I try to download the custom sound files I am only offered to listen to it or (right click) save it as a document. What am I doing wrong???

Nuvi 2797 hidden files

In the past I had no problem setting up my computer to view the hidden files in the 3790.

Set to view hidden files and folders and drives in Windows 7 and 8.1

The same settings do not seem to work in my new 2797.
Strangely enough the 2797 does not even show as a drive with a drive letter, but it shows up in "This PC" between "Music" and "Pictures", almost like another folder.

Garmin Customer Service

I just wanted to make a post about the excellent customer service I received from Garmin USA concerning a broken part for my handheld Garmin Colorado 400c. I've had the unit for a good seven years now and the rock and roller button finally gave out. I had heard some mixed results on getting a new part for this.

Backing Up GPS the fast way

Not sure if this has been covered but here's a way to back up your gps VERY quickly.

You can use a windows program called Robocopy to ONLY copy the files that have CHANGED since your last backup. Since you're only replacing files that have changed, the backup will be very fast. My last backup took less than 30 seconds.

Problem updating Garmin Express

When attempting to update Garmin Express (Garmin Express, Settings, About, Check For Updates)for the last few months, the update starts to download then I get a red "FAILED" (which disappears in about 10 seconds). I've tried reinstalling GE on top of the current version and I've completely uninstalled / reinstalled GE.

Garmin HD Traffic Loss Of Signal

I have recently noticed that my Garmin Nuvi 3597 seems to experience loss of signal on HD Traffic. This happens in areas where I have had solid coverage in the past. My suspicions are that this might be due to something going on at the actual HD radio station broadcast tower. Does anybody happen to know which broadcaster provides this service in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul MN area?
