You have HD traffic on your nuvi—should you add LiveTraffic?

Here's the question. You have a new nuvi that has come with lifetime HD traffic, but you also have a smartphone and your nuvi can connect with the smartphone via Bluetooth with the Garmin Smartphone app. The question is: after adding the free Garmin app to your smartphone and linking it to your nuvi for basic weather, should you pay the one-time $20 fee to access LiveTraffic?

Telephone Calls Through Your Garmin GPS

I have had a Garmin Nuvi 360, that I bought used, that has the ability to make Bluetooth connected telephone calls. I have never even tried that feature. A big part of that is because a friend of mine is a big Bluetooth advocate and his calls generally sounded awful through Bluetooth.

nuvi 2797 LMT direction voice

i was real surprised that a fairly expensive GPS does not have TTL . it will only tel you "turn right in 1/2 mile" etc, but no street names
just an observation

2597 Drive Hours Logger

So, I was poking around in the Diagnostics Menu and at the bottom of the page is the Drive Hours Logger (Enable/Disable). I enabled it. Anyone know where the hours appear or how it's used? Or even if it works without the Hours of Service module from the new 765?

Garmin Nuvi 3597 And MapSource

I connected my Garmin Nuvi 3597 to my computer and tried to use MapSource, but I had no luck. The cable is good because I was able to use Garmin Express. I recall reading something about Garmin MapSource in the past. Is the Garmin 3597 not compatible with MapSource? Do I have to use Garmin BaseCamp now?

Legacy Garmin Connected Features

I was thinking today about the various connected features we have today and what we had in the past. So, since Garmin XT was something I used on a phone several years ago, I decided to take a look at We had Garmin OnLine, fuel prices, flight status, weather, traffic, etc.

What Do You Do When You Get A New Garmin GPS?

Since getting my new Garmin Nuvi 3597 recently, I have been brain storming to make sure that I do everything I need to do to get it up to date. So far, here is a laundry list of things I have done, or will do, after getting a new Garmin:

-Update to current firmware

-Update to latest maps

-Delete non English voices

-Delete non English keyboards

Oldsmar Red Light Cameras

I just downloaded the latest redlight camera file and noticed that the 4 Oldsmar fl cameras are missing or maybe I'm not seeing them?
They were there a couple weeks ago.

Garmin Nuvi 3597 Settings

I would like to configure my Garmin Nuvi 3597 so that it does not auto zoom. I just want it to stay at whatever setting I select. Does anybody know if this is possible?

I know that on some Garmins it was an option if I selected the UK or some other non-United States country. Could this still be possible?

Otterbox Type Case For Garmin Nuvi 3597

I am looking for a protective case for my Garmin Nuvi 3597. I know that there are lots of cases available, but I am specifically looking for the type that is similar to a cell phone protective case that would allow it to be used when navigating on foot, I seem to recall seeing one somehwere recently, but I can't for the life of me seem to find it on line right now.
