Garmin talk


SD card and POIs.

I loaded all POIs on my mini sd card. Removed the file except the current.gpx in the GPX folder and deleted the existing POIs from the GPS. When I insert the card in my 2557 it asked me if I wanted to move the POIs to the internel memory I clicked on no. Now when I check for the POIs in the device it can not find them. What am I doing wrong?

Suggestions for planning a trip with a Garmin device

First, let me confess that I ask this without having done any research into the question.

POI Loader (alert distance)

Does anyone know how to check and/or change the proximity alert distance in POI Loader? I need detail steps. Thanks!

garmin lm 3590

sorry to bother you guys from the states but it seems nobody, even garmin support knows how to fix my problem.
after a botched update of my 3590 with that marvelous program called garmin express i can non longer see weather. if i click on the blue wether radar icon nothing displays.

Is Garmin Really the Best???

I've used Garmin for years as most have. Overall, their products have served me well. But, updating the maps is such an incredible PITA for me, not to mention a waste of alot of time. Garmin Express has never worked well for me. I basically consider it Crapware. So, my question goes to those who have experience with Magellan and Tom-Tom, especially downloading and installing their map updates.

Battery Replacement

Not all of the Garmin battery connections are soldered since this subject was discussed in 2007. See attached for a start on how to DIY battery replacement on a NUVI:

What replaced the 2597LMT?

Hey everyone, I'm looking to replace my 5 year old Garmin with something a little newer and saw some good reviews for the 2597LMT however it's 2 years old so I'm hesitant to buy it. Anyone know for sure what the 2014 or the 2015 updated versions are?

Anyone familiar with Isave for getting Nuvi's?

I have done a lot of looking and am considering the 2460LMT refurbished unit. I like the powered mount and 5 inch screen.

Walmart has it being fulfilled by Isave for $179.99 and 1 year warranty.

Nuvi 2460LMT.

Garmin Voice Studio

While searching for information on Garmin Voices. I ran accross this for Voice Studio.Had seen this info before in the past but never tried it.Has anyone gave it a try?

Traffic and alerts

On a short trip to Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. I was able to see how two features worked on my Garmin Nuvi 2597. I was notified verbally that along my route was a traffic problem. Plus the pop up with info on the right side of the main screen. During the navagation apparently the traffic cleared up and I was again verbally notified the traffic along the route was cleared.

Are there any current nüvi models with British Daniel?

My 1350LMT seems to be totally toasted. I know that any nüvi I choose to replace it will have the basic features I need, so there's only one "extra" I really want to find and there's a lot of conflicting info about it. I've been going in circles for hours trying to sort this out...

Bluetooth (Anyone using their 680 with the iPhone?)

I currently have a nuvi 680 and love it dearly. It has worked faithfully from the day I purchased, refurbished, many moons ago. I purchased and use the lifetime maps and a traffic receiver for it. The only issue I am having is the bluetooth with my iPhone 4s.

Nuvi 2557 says no more street names.

Michelle only tells me to turn left or right. No more street names. I checked the owners manual but can't find what is wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Nav voice not working Nuvi 2555

My Nuvi 2555 isn't providing voice directions when I set a destination. The voice does work for camera and speed trap alerts. My guess is that I accidentally changed a setting somewhere, but I can't figure it out.

Would FM Broadcast And NOAA Weather Radio Be A Good Feature On Garmin Auto GPS Units?

As posted above, do people here think that FM Broadcast And NOAA Weather Radio would be good features on Garmin automobile GPS units? I picked up a Garmin Monterra a week ago. Granted, it is a trail GPS, but it has both of those features. I know some people do use their automobile GPS units out of their vehicle and it might to handy to have that capability built in.

2595lmt upgrades make unit more buggy

Has anyone noticed that the more upgrades you do to a device the more the gps gets buggy? Everytime I do an upgrade, I notice that new bugs occur. The units gets slower and map refreshes slow down.

What happens when you drop a 3597?

A dropped 3597? Or maybe it was run over by a car—or a bulldozer!

Trouble with rest area download

I am having a problem downloading the rest area file and only that file.
I was downloading this file for years with my old laptop (HP with vista) I use the latest POI loader program.
My new laptop (HP with Windows 7 professional) When I try to open and save the file, I get a error message "system data exception and it can't find the file"
I am using a free opener program.

Nuvi, Basecamp and maps on SD card.

This may have already come up on some long since post, however...I recently got CN NT Europe on a SD card. Plugged it into my 3597 and plugged it into Basecamp. The Europe maps (which I had looked at on the Nuvi) did not show. I had to put the 3597 into Mass Storage mode for the maps to show and load (very slowly)into Basecamp!
