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!

nuvi 2598LMTHD factory refurb - $119.99

Groupon is offering (sold by Groupon Goods) a factory refurbed nuvi 2598LMTHD for $120. The listing states that it comes with a 1-yr Garmin warranty and that over 1000 have already been sold.

It seems a good price for a nuvi with RealDirections, HD traffic, etc. although I have no experience with that model. I have had good luck with my rare purchases through Groupon.

New Garmin 760LM settings for commercial van not truck. Help.

Hi. I purchased a 760Lm to replace my wonderful Nuvi 660 that never had any issue. Does anyone use the 760 for a commercial van not a truck. Here in NYC commercial vehicles are not allowed on commercial routes or parkways but 760 clearly stays away from many roads causing me to take longer routes but I never had this issue with Nuvi 660 in truck mode.

'Cross-Use of Garmin'

Let's hear from you on whether this is do-able....
My daughter has taken up mountain-biking, and she also had her Nuvi ripped off.
If I got her a Garmin Edge (for biking) could she use road maps on an sd card to navigate on roads?
If I got her a Nuvi (for road nav) could she use it for mountain biking if a Topo map was put on the sd card?

old vs the New

What is your old Garmin Model vs your new Garmin Model? Will you keep the old or give it away if you don't have other use for it?

Garmin 60CX with map updater (Mac) not giving me latest maps

My Garmin 60CX USED to work with Garmin Express, and this is what the Garmin website says to use. However, even though Express recognizes the 60CX, it has me download Garmin Map Updater instead. And today, Jan 17, 2015, it downloads North America 2014.3 as the latest map, even though I have 2015.1 installed.

Old Garmin systems Vs. their new ones - major shortcomings, customer service no help.

I recently purchased a NUVI 2598 LMT to replace a apprx 10 year old NUVI 760 that, regrettably, is dying (both battery and screen).

A year ago, I also purchased a NUVI, a 3597, to replace the old 760. I had to return that one, just like I'm about to return the 2598. I did so because both had major issues that, per customer service, weren't flaws but "features".

Watching Movies on Dezl 760

Can you watch movies on the Garmin Dezl 760? I know it is capable of such a feat, but there isn't a program on it to utilize it. I would imagine being able to watch a weather report broadcast from the local area would be great, and with the screen size and location, would be perfect.

can I add music (mp3) files to an SD card that has a map data set on it

I want to use my garmin to playback music. The microSD card which I have a map on it, still a lot free memory spaces.

can I make a folder to contain some MP3 files? will effect the map rounting or the music playback?

Thanks so much.

2797LMT Refurb New User

Just received my refurb 2797LMT.
What a beast!! Gonna love it.
Sure is a bit different than my Zumo550.
Had a problem with my Win7 64bit not recognizing the unit until I remembered a previous problem with plugging into a front usb port.
I then plugged it into one of the rear ports and Voila!! Problem solved.
Updates using GE went without a hitch.

Under no circumstances whatsoever, will logic and common sense be tolerated.

Sound files not working..


I'm having a problem getting sound files to work on my nuvi 2557. When I load them with a mp3 extension I don't get any voice message. Only the dong.

When I load them with a wav extension I get a message on the loader that it can not use the sound files or something like that. What am I doing wrong?

How do I put POI s on a SD card? The info must be somewhere but I can't find it.

Garmin 3790T Stalls On Update

I'm trying to download the latest North American map update(2015.30) onto the unit but it stalls at 56%.

Next I try and download it to my computer only. Now it stalls at 75%

I have the lifetime update.

Any ideas appreciated.

Garmin Nuvi 3597 Micro SD Card Formatting

I finally bought a 16GB micro SD card for my Garmin Nuvi 3597. All the talk recently about formatting has me wondering about that. The manual simply states to insert the memory card. What, if anything, do I need to do to use the micro SD on the 3597? The manual does not state how to format it. How will I know when it is formatted properly?

LMT or LM.

Hello everyone.

I just received my factory refurbished Nuvi 2557. It was advertised as an LMT but there is no traffic receiver in the power cable. Is there a way to find out for sure what it is? I e-mailed Garmin but that might take a while.

Thank you.
