Trouble connecting iPhone 5s with Nuvi 2797

Curious if other users are also having BT Problems between iPhone 5s and Nuvi 2797. My iPhone is running 8.1.3. 2797 used to connect easily but now rarely connects inspite of my resetting both devices. Can't figure what's wrong or,what I am doing wrong.

Here map updates

What a shock—I received an email from Garmin today: $10 off a GPS for recent graduates. surprised

I did see an interesting note in the email, something I didn't know. It was (with my added bolding):

Hardwire video feed in nuvi 2689LMT ?

I realize the Nuvi 2689LMT can be parried with the BC30 wireless camera. My question is this, since I already have a built in backup camera (very small screen) in my mini van, can I tap into this video feed instead of purchasing the BC30? I believe the BC30 transmits video feed wirelessly, is their a hardwire work around?

Double poi rest stops

On my new 3597, I added the poi rest stops and saw double entries under CATEGORIES . Removed the poi but still have the double entries.


Has anyone looked into the Garmin Nuvicam LMTH? It is to be available in May 2015.

Garmin North American 2016.10 Map Update

Well, someone had to start it! rolleyes

Based on prior years history shown here: the new map update release should be imminent but, then again, the last update was about six weeks later than usual.

If I download a GPX file of geocaching locations, can I upload them to my Garmin Astro 220 and have them recognized?

Garmin map updates, Yes or No?

When I have access to my computer I religiously update to the newest available Garmin maps. Having been away since the middle of October in Mexico and not able to update to 2015.30. I just did the 2015.40.

I know that there are people out there who think it's a waste of time.

Split Screen Question

I just came back home from holidays (1625 mile trip) and noticed on just one occasion the junction view showing what exit to take appeared on my screen and wouldn't go away even though I had passed the view's location.

Updating my two Nuvi's

After numerous problems with the 3790 on my 3,000 mile drive home I decided to do a factory reset to see if that would eliminate these problems. The map would all of a sudden disappear to the voice command screen. The command had been changed a long time ago to "Wake up dummy" to lessen any radio interference. The map would for some reason zoom out so far it was useless.

Older Kenwood DNX-8120 showing "double" the custom POIs (Resolved)

So, I do not like the new "style" of the current models of the Kenwood/Garmin units and have continued to use my 8120 since new. Recently, I went to update my custom POIs (about 80k of them) and when I do, the Garmin is showing "double" entries for each category. For example, if I have a dozen POI categories, it shows all of them and then repeats it again.

I install basically the same POIs ANNUALLY before each summer trip (Walmart, Coatco, Rest areas, campgrounds, National Parks). thank you for all your hard work to share these. I have tried both cvs and gpx

How to manage PI files???

I have a question about how to manage POI files in my Garmin 2597LMT.

If I go to Categories -> Custom POIs I get a list of my POIs. However there are some duplicates. If I use BaseCamp, POI Loader or File Explorer I can find the list(s) of POs but only a single entry for each group of POIs.

How do I find and delete the redundant POI files?

Thank you.

Thank You OSM Team.

I use Open Street Map + GPSFileDepot topos exclusively on our Garmin hand held hikers. Those involved with OSM continue to improve both the service & maps over time. Rather than downloading predivided sections or whole portions, a user can now specify what tiles he needs

In addition the server generates four different configurations available for DL:

Nuvi 2589 (answering phone calls)

I just bought a Nuvi 2589. Works great so far. I have one question. When the phone rings, I can't answer the phone with my voice. I have to "touch" the screen(accept). Shouldn't I be able to answer without touching the screen?

History GPS help desperate

Unlike others trying to hide info I am wondering how to get all my history from my Nuvi. I am being harrassed by someone and this info would prove my honesty. Please can anyone tell me how to download history for the year! Please help thanks
