Garmin talk

 

Google buys Garmin, could anyone see this happening?

I've always loved our Garmins except for the live traffic data. IMO, I think Google has the market when it comes to providing up to date traffic info. So in my dreams, I see Google come in and buy Garmin, future Garmin models all provide the crowd sourced traffic data, build slimmer less clunky models and like that, the Garmin brand effectively kills off the competition.

Arranging Sub-folders

How do you change the arrangement of sub-folders in the Custom POIs folder so they are organized in a logical order?

Let's help Garmin design their next flagship GPS for us aficionados!!

I think Garmin should build at least one unit for us! People who like to use our GPS, and know what information we'd like to get rather than the great unwashed masses who just want to know where the next Starbucks is!!

Hi everybody, I have a Nuvi 710 and I have the following problems that seems to be unsolvable, firstly, my GPS`s time is a hour in advance, the time zone is correct, but the time is out.

Refurb Garmin Nuvi 2757LM or Nexus with CamSam?

I can get a 2757LM for 179.95 or I can get a Refurb Nexus 7 for 79.95.

The advantage of the Nexus7 is obviously that it can be used for many things in addition to a GPS.

I am trying to justify spending the extra $100 for the Garmin.

The Digital Map Business Buyout Saga Continues!

More or less then OSM? Google or Apple Maps? Nokia thinks HERE is worth about 2 billion euros. According to the Bloomberg article: "The company’s map business provides data to Amazon.com Inc., Microsoft Corp., Yahoo! Inc. and four out of five car-navigation systems."

I have all the rest of Garmin programs but Express just won'install? I sent Garmin an email but i think that was a waste of time. Does anyone have any ideas.

Garmin Express up to 4.0.15.0

Updated GE from 4.0.13.0. Update went to 4.0.15.0.

No space?

i bought a refurb nuvi 2598 a few months ago. Updated it before starting to use it. Now that the latest map update has been released I thought I'd update that, plus install the red light camera files. I downloaded the latest Garmin Express, and after a bit of difficulty got it to see my 2598.

Good Sam Trip Planner download to Garmin Nuvi

Is it possible to download a trip from Good Sam Trip Planner to my Garmin Nuvi 500? Good Sam trip planner is designed to download to Rand McNally Good Sam GPS, but I wonder if I could download to Garmin instead?

Garmin Real Directions

Several Garmin automotive devices now offer Real Directions.

memory card

I just purchased my first Garmin after using Tomtom for several years. I was able to move quite of bit of my Tomtom functions to the memory card keeping it up to date. It was a little slow but for its age I guess I would be to.

Disable "Find Parking" banner/symbol?

Does anyone know a way to disable this feature? I don't like it popping up as I'm arriving to a destination.

I just recently disabled "junction view" by renaming the file extension of the file. Wondering if there is a similar file I could rename in order to prevent the "find parking" feature from activating. Thanks.

Voice Alerts and Icons

I have a new Garmin Nuvi 52 and am interested in adding voice alerts and icons to the red light camera, speed camera, and rest area files I have already installed on my device. Is this a good idea?
