Garmin 2689 LMT Time Off by 1 hour

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.

Time for New GPS - Garmin 2639 and 2689, or Other?

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.

Garmin 2597 New POI .. 99% ok


With the great work of this forum I have successfully used POI Loader, sox.exe, created POI's using GPS coordinates in .gpx and made wav files. I have made 8 different POI's and the file name of each POI is identical to the .wav file except for the extension.


I have owned the nuviCam for about a week. Overall, aside from being rather massive, I like its features. I am still getting used to it and working with it, so I have not been able to access all features yet, but the new ones that I have used are useful. The dashcam is also a nice feature, although I know that some grumble about it.

Time Zone Map

So is the Time Zone map problem fixed?

I see that the fenix forums are still showing problems with V16.02 and they are going back to V15.

What's the latest here?

POI sound alert for Garmin Nuvi 2568LMT


I am unable to customize POI sound alerts for my Garmin 2568LMT. I used POI editor 2.7.3 with SOX 14.4.2. I had a doubt with my WAV files so I used sample WAV files found on this site. WAF filename is the same that csv and bmp file (except extension).

The only sound I have is a "dong dong" sound while I expect my WAV file is played.

Do you have an idea of what's wrong?

Thank you

Time for a new Garmin

Well, my wife's 765T died after almost six years of solid service. My 765T is still going strong. I have to replace the unit with a new one, and I don't have a clue about which Garmin to choose. We're not looking for a lot of bells and whistles. Don't need Bluetooth since that's already built into her car.

Garmin 765T...Is it about the destination, or is it about the journey?

deleting copies on my custom pois on my garmin

Doe anyone know how to delete multiple copies of scenic routes on my garmin 550. I have went to the poi loader and hit remove all pois, but everytime I reboot and go to extras, custom pois, the same 3 are still on the 550.

Garmin Express won't 'see' map update 2015.40

I purchased a 3597LMT a few months back. We are leaving for a big trip in few days so I check online and see they have released 2015.40.

When I plug in my 3597 and fire up garmin express it doesn't show the update......yet if I select the 3790 I used to have it does show the update for it. What gives?


CSV and GPX on device together

This is a pretty newbie question, but if I load CSV and GPX duplicate files will I end up with duplicate files on my Nuvi? I wasn't sure if it would default to just one of them. For example there is a CSV and a GPX file of donut paradise. Will I end up with duplicate data if I install them both? Thanks, Louie.

Time Zone Map V16.01 Fixes V16.00 Problem

I was just updating some POI files when Garmin Express showed me that Time Zone Map Update 16.01 was available. I had updated to 16.00 yesterday (Sunday) and had to change my GPS to Mass Storage Mode to be able to use POI Updater. After installing 16.01 everything works great again. I changed back to MTP Auto Detect and now the GPS correctly communicates with POI Updater.

Finally decided to list my only remaining Garmin Unit on eBay

Update 5/23/2015: Everything sold and has already been paid for using eBay. It sold for $187.50 + shipping in just 5 days so eBay comes thought again.

Original post:

I have been using Garmin units for years and have been generally very pleased with their features and reliability.

Charging 3790

I'll be going to Europe for all of July. I'd love to take my 3790 with a Europe map on an SD card.
Can the 3790 be charged via the mini USB port from an electric outlet using a mains to USB adapter?

Garmin nuvi 2598lmthd custom poi

I downloaded the poi loader from Garmin, and got the red light camera files from here. Upon connecting my gps to the computer, the poi loader program would not detect my gps unit when I told it to save the poi file to my gps. I then told it to save the file to my computer and it worked.
