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.
Can i format garmin itself ? i don't have SD card, wanted to update my gps
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.
GE 22.214.171.124 is out. Installed without problem Win 7 64x
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?
Best Buy is selling new Garmin - nüvi 3597LMTHD 5" GPS for $259.99 today only, shows in stock in the stores near me for pickup today:
I am sure that I saw one or more posts on this subject a while ago but cannot find them now, so here is a report of such an event I saw last evening.
Driving South on US-1 from Raleigh (NC) turning right onto US-64 the Junction View for that exit stayed till I got to the next exit (US-15/501 N) some 20 or so miles away.
A couple of days ago i put an order into Amazon.ca for a Nuvi 2797 LMT. Price NEW $ 229.00 Beaver bucks, FREE delivery. Cheaper than GPS City.ca at $ 239.00 Refurbished plus shipping. Also got a beanbag for it.
Just arrived today and gave it a quick tryout. I AM IMPRESSED!
Barely out of the box and it had acquired my location, real fast.
I may have to travel to Europe for work and wanted to take my 3490 with me. Obviously I have the US maps loaded in the unit but I may need to buy the City Navigator® Europe NT maps and I was wondering if there was an advantage or disadvantage to downloading the file myself or just buying the pre-loaded card.
I bought the Garmin for my job. I go to various job sites in a given day. Can anyone tell me how to input locations at the beginning of the day such that it will tell me which location is the next closest as I go form location to location without having to reload locations. Can it be done with recently found or favorites? Do I need to load a program?
Hi I'm new here and I searched the frequently asked questions before I posted but most of the answers were really technical.
I've done some of this already so I'm just educated enough to NOT know what I'm doing, LOL!
My first post on the forum, so hello everyone!
Each time I launch Garmin Express (using the most recent version) it keeps saying that there is an update to install for my Nuvi 2559LMT
I went through the update on my Garmin. The problem is, the map installed is "Southern US & Mexico. I live in the Pacific Northwest. How do I correct this problem? I saw nothing as to which map to install & now my Garmin is totally inacurate. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
This unit could be a solution for RV’ers and trailer haulers with limited dash space who thought the 7” RV760 was too cumbersome.
Appears to have all the features of the 760 plus a few more.
The unit will not ship for 5 to 8 weeks though, and may be too late for a good portion of the 2015 summer season.
Just purchased a Garmin 2699 lmthd.It does not show red light camera locations like my 2460 does. Can the red light camera feature be added to this Model?
I was doing my twice a year/yearly maintenance on my computers and noticed I could defrag anything that is inserted into the card openings on desktop. I plugged in the 1450 and fired up one of my defrag programs and it showed that the 1450 has
1% fragmented internal memory
39% fragmented SD card
Has anyone else done this? Or not to worry.
Is there a setting to stop map themes from changing color when crossing national, state and provincial boundaries? The map is easily readable light yellow in my home state of Pennsylvania, but when I cross into another state (e.g., Maryland), the map for that adjacent state is a difficult-to-read green.
Garmin began rolling out Garmin Express v126.96.36.199 for the PC today. If you would like to upgrade to the latest version, Check for Updates to Express on the Settings page within the Express application. This version includes the following changes:
• Fixed an issue that caused activities to be deleted after successfully syncing to Garmin Connect.
I have a Garmin NUVI 2689LMT that since the last map update, the time is off by 1hour, for example right now - the unit says 3:15pm when it's actually 4:15pm (EST).
I've tried everything, calling Garmin (they are clueless) and I followed their instructions:
1) Hard Reset the device from Copyright screen.
2) Backed up/restored.
In the near future I am considering a new Garmin. Does anyone have any experience with the Garmin 2639 or 2689, or does anyone have a suggestion for a new GPS? Thank you in advance for your information.
