Yellow Color when attaching a MTP device

I was doing some testing of what happens on a restart the other day. I did a master reset on my 2595 and - as I expected - the factory defaults include being in MTP mode.

Before putting the device back into MS mode, I attached it to the computer and noticed that the Icon of the Tower and the USB cord were in yellow (versus the white I am used to).

Viago gone?

I found this link over on the Garmin software forum:


This app is no longer available for purchase or download.

It appears that Garmin may have discontinued Viago ... too bad. Although it could have used a few enhancements, I kind of liked the program.

safety and red light poi's to sd card


First time here. I downloaded to POI Loader and safety and red light camera files. The instructions say to load then straight to my nuvi. Will they still work if I load them on my sd card instead and install that into the nuvi? I would rather just deal with the sd card most of time instead of connecting the gps.

Thanks, GQ

Can't see my old POI's after downloading new ones?

I purchased a new 50LMT after my old Garmin died. I added some POI's and they worked fine.I later added some new POI's. The new POI's are there but I can not see the original POI's. I looked in the memory and the old POI's are there but they are not showing up on the screen.I went to the download file to add the old POI's but It's telling the files are already there? Am I missing something?

New Foursquare POIs

Does anybody have the new Foursquare POI feature? If you do, how do you like it compared to the old POI system?

Nuvi 2789LMT

Does anybody know what is going on with the release of the Nuvi 2789LMT? It was supposed to be released with the 2014 Advanced Series line but it doesn't seem like it was. All of the other 2014 Advanced Series line are available and the 2789LMT says that it will be available in the 1st quarter of 2015 on the Garmin web site.

Got another refurbished 2460LMT with NA maps that is not what it is supposed to be

Yup, I tried again because everyone says "No issues", "great unit".
I did more homework on this one. It cost me $30 more. I verified with the reseller (Isave via Amazon) that it has lifetime NA maps and that the warranty is a 1 year. I was told yes to both. I was also told that they buy as is from Garmin. So a 2460 LMT with NA maps should have lifetime NA maps.

Blue line on Garmin 3597 normal?

Hey, I just got my 3597 and out of the box it has a blue line across the top. Is this normal? I don't remember it being there when playing with the demo at Best Buy or having it on my 205W. Thanks. Link is to a screenshot to show it. Words do cover the blue line which is what confuses me.

POI and SD Card (Kenwood)

Very new to this everyone. I have built in Kenwood 4250 DAB / Kenwood and I use SD card for map updates. I wanted Custom POI and I downloaded CSV excel file, used POI loader and it converted to .gpi. I copied to SD card, not sure if I should have made a POI folder, anyway I had no success when I loaded SD card to device in car?? Should the CSV file also be on SD card?

Garmin Express Update Available

At least for the Mac side.

Nuvi 52 LM Favorites

I downloaded the Harley Davidson Dealers to my Nuvi 52 POI files. That seams to be fine, however I now have all 900 plus HD dealers in my favorites folder. Is there some way to mass delete the favorites. Currently you must edit/delete each entry. I'm 66 years old, I dont have that kind time, lol

Garmin Dash Mount Issues

I just got a 2013 Corolla, and the dashboard has a different texture than my other car. This one features a "leather" like texture. The problem is that the Garmin Permanent Dash Mount (with adhesive oval foam tape) does not stick properly. I followed all the instructions, and it still pops right off - even after letting it sit/cure for days.

McDonalds with Truck and RV parking

Is there a File for Garmin that would cover McDonalds that have Truck and RV parking?


when updating POI's

I have two Garmins and quite a few POI's from this site. I read where, to update POI's, you should delete the folder on your computer for the files you want to update. But I was wondering, do you delete the POI files on the Garmin also, or does the update just add or delete from the already loaded POI's?

thanks in advance

enjoy the ride eric

Buyer beware on refurbished nuvi's

Buyer beware. I have always been against pre-owned/refurbished items because I didn't want to buy someone else's problems. Anyways, I bought a refurbished 2460LMT because a lot of users said "no problems"' "great deals". Well. I got stung.

Garmin nuvi 2595 trip cost

The above mentioned unit will give field trip data, including the fuel cost, along with Maximum Speed, Moving Average Speed, and etc. It seems that the fuel cost is based on the fuel cost per mile, which is excessive in comparison to my actual data, I have obtained for my vehicle over a number of years.

My Garmin 560 won't connect to my computer (Windows 7 OS)

I'm having trouble getting my computer to find my DEZL 560. I keep getting the msg "No device found", even though my unit is connected via a working (tested) USB port. Can anyone help with this?
