Garmin DEM (Digital Elevation) Maps

I was doing some searching through Garmin's faqs and came across this one:

As I thought about this, I was shocked to see "DEM basemap" offered on some pretty ancient Garmin GPS devices like the old nuvi 8x5 series.

2015.40 Junction File -- Where? What size? for a Nuvi 2689?

I never had a junction file for the 660, so I didn't follow those threads much, other than to take note that upgrades would sometimes not load one, or load a smaller file.....

Now that we own a Nuvi 2689 I guess it's time to take notice.... and start asking questions....

On the 2689, where would the junction file reside.....

And What size or sizes would it be for 2015.40?

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!

Screen Calibration FAQ

I have 5 different Garmins and for years they all just kept on ticking. So I was surprised when my daughter said her screen was all messed up. I looked at it and sure enough, calibration was off.

So I have been doing HERE's Map Creator for awhile now and have been making additions and changes in other countries. Now, HERE has *just* made it where you can apply to edit the United States. I have applied and was granted editing privileges.

Firmware Update 4.80

With the latest update, I am now getting the annoying warning message every time the unit turns on. Before the update, the unit would turn on and go right to the main page. Is there any way to turn off the warning? Anyone else noticed the same thing happening?

3490lmt Touchscreen stopped working and now works again

Recently, I charged my Nuvi 3490lmt with an android tablet charger for a couple of hours. After unplugging my 3490lmt, the battery was fully charged but the touchscreen was unresponsive.

Everything was working fine accept the touchscreen. For example, I could use "voice command" to navigate, etc.

Then all of a sudden after about a week, the unit is working perfectly, go figure.


Is there a FAQ for this?

When I get the latest map update, I install the update to the device (1450) and the computer using MapUpdater.
My question is: should any of the three 1450 map files get corrupted, etc., is there a method to recreate these map files from the update files on the computer?

I looked in the FAQs but was unable to locate any info on this. I'm probably not looking for the correct terms.


Large JCV file

I get "file not found" when I try the links for the large JCV file...

Basecamp Info

I am using Basecamp more now that I am having problems with Mapsource not recognizing certain areas of my maps. The question I have is in Mapsource you could always right click on a selected map and choose properties and then see total miles and estimated time of travel. I can't seem to find that info in the Basecamp maps I create.

Garmin Map Update Too Large

Any suggestions on files to delete in order to get the latest Garmin map update onto a Nuvi 1450 without having to get an SD card?


Nuvi 500 memory

I have a Nuvi 500 and when I try to load a north america map update, I get a warning that there is not enough internal memory available, so I then have to choose a region (west, etc) to update. My question is, I have an 8MB memory card in the Nuvi, doesn't not the update maps go there or, can I use the memory card to hold the maps?

map update

Did they release a map update today? How can I check the version? Thanks!

Nuvi 2460LMT 2 Units

Dezl 560 setup

I've been running thus unit for a year or so in a truck, but set to the automobile profile. I took it home because I was getting the memory full message and I updated the maps and system with GE. I also did a hard reset. Now (you knew it was something) I'm missing navigation information that used to be on the right side of the map.

Custom POIs Not Showing Sub Folder Names On My GPS

I just installed my first POI file on my Nuvi 52. Its the "Red Light Camera" file. I created a folder on my computer named "Custom POIs" with three sub folders (Red Light Cameras; Rest Areas; Speed Cameras).
