Garmin 2595 Backup

I am having a problem backing up my Garmin 2595 GPS. My internal storage on my Garmin shows 5.16 gb used. When I show all hidden files on my computer it shows only 372mb that can be backed up. Obviously the map files and possibly other files are not showing and can't be backed up under windows. How can I back up all 5.16 gb of internal storage?

Does any one have the change log for the firmware update 4.70? I update my device last night but for got to see what it fixed or change with firmware. I have a 2589LMT.

Choosing a Mass Storage.

When I want to change my Nuvi 2557 to mass storage I have two choices. Mass storage and Mass storage single session. What should I pick?

Request Input From Nuvi Owners With Voice Command (URGENT)

In an earlier thread member stan393 reported his ASR folder (Voice Command Files) was larger than 3GB and was running out of free space on his Nuvi 2797.
Myself and 2 others have attempted to investigate why so much space is being used and depleting free memory. We still have no definite answer.

Got a new computer (how to keep POI's and settings?)

So I got a new computer a few months ago and now I want to update my GPS. My old computer is up at my parent's place and I don't have access to it at the moment. Is there anything I can do to make sure that I can download a map update but also keep all of my POI's and settings for POI alerts?


Nuvi 255W totally dead

I have a Nuvi 255W that I had not charged the battery on in about a year. I plugged it in and the unit is totally dead. Yes I know it is old, but for certain applications I really liked that 255W. Any thoughts on how to resurrect the unit?

Nuvi 2597 Diagnostics

On my 855, I could press/hold the speed display and a Test/Diagnostic screen would come up allowing various tests to be completed and show additional info about the device.

Is there a similar function on the 2597?

Why don't Car Mfr's in Dash Navi Systems use Garmin Maps?

Garmin's maps are way better than what comes standard in any automobile. IMHO.

Does anyone legitimately know why?

Garmin 855 keeps crashing

My Garmin 855 crashes almost every day that I use it. It usually works fine for a few hours then it locks up. The only way to get it working again is to remove the battery. Then it's good for awhile again. It does have the latest firmware.
Is there a setting I can change or is it just junk?


Garmin 3790LMT for only $1,924.84 plus shipping

Thought I would Google my 3790LMT just for the heck of it and amongst other sites selling them in the $400+ range found this one for $1,924.84 and couldn't resist passing it on in case someone wants to have the most expensive 3790 ever sold. wink

Maybe I should sell mine?

Nuvi Devices: Features and Models

I received my first GPS as a gift this year, its a Nuvi 52. At this point, I am just entering addresses directly every time to get directions to a new location, but it appears to have other features I have not tried. I was wondering what are the most popular features? Also I am curious what the differences are between my 52 and the devices that seem to be more common with POI forum contributors.

Info on a dezl 560 wanted

I am considering upgrading to a dezl 560. I have some questions for someone who has one.

garmin 2797 nearly out of space

i have looked in a lot of places both here and the web and not run across this. Maybe i overlooked it. my garmin 2797 has about 142 mb left for storage. i have gone thru and removed voices , texts and keyboards. there is a folder under SID that has 1 gb ,then ASR has 3 gb. so you can see storage is full. I don't have a lot of extra stuff that i remember loaded in it.

GE (ugh!)

I've used to update maps and I'm now trying to find the setting that says "device / computer / both", to verify that I should have 2015.30 on disk, too. Earlier versions also allowed me to specify WHERE on the computer to place maps. (I can only find the setting for backup location.)

On board Garmin in a 2014 Durango

I just purchased a 2014 Durango, and it comes with a Garmin Navigation System. I will keep my trusty 1490 with lifetime maps, just in case.

But I've got a couple of questions already. The owners manual seems to leave out any information on using the nav system. Since I bought the car used, maybe there is some other documents I'm missing.

What am I missing?

So, I have a 3597 and I'm wondering how all the space is being taken up in memory.

Windows Explorer says there is 7.01 GB of disk space. There is only 1.22 GB free and I have deleted all the non-essential voice, text, keyboard, help, etc. files.

A few versions ago, I stated getting notification on the notification bar that updates are available for my Garmin device. When I launch Garmin Express, it says everything is up to date. It doesn't matter if the my 2450 is plugged into the computer or not.
