Mini cable for Nuvi 660 operation without soldering the connector

I bought one of these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/181481116829?_trksid=p2060778.m2749....

and one of these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/181498840381?_trksid=p2060778.m2749....

Now this second one was just for verifying the pinout easily....

I then cut the first (5 Pin extender) in Half...
Pinout is:
+5V RED
Ground BLACK

Smart Link For iOS

I have a 3490LMT. It doesn't appear that Smart Link is available for this model unless I use Android only. Is this correct? It seems that later models like the 3597LMTHD is able to run either iOS or Android.

Thanks.

Garmin 2015 Essential Line But No 2015 Advanced Line

I was looking at the Garmin website and I noticed that 2015 Essential Line is listed, but nothing for Advanced or Prestige. I seem to recall that the consensus here was that the Prestige Line ended with the Nuvi 3597. Do we know if there will be a 2015 Advanced Line and, if so, could models for that pretty much be announced at any time?

BMP sizes for new Garmins with higher resolution Screens?

Our new 2689 has a higher resolution screen than the 660 does.
Therefore, the BMP files look physically smaller on the 2689 than 660...

Factory Reset without working touchscreen?

Would like to remove all personal data from my Nuvi 3970 but I cannot follow the normal factory reset procedure as the touchscreen doesn't work.

Unit works otherwise. Connects to PC fine. Can run updates via Garmin Express, etc.

Is there anyway to reset it via my PC? Or what files can I safely delete to keep unit functional but erase my personal files?

Deleteing Second Map

In the past, I have usually used Map Updater and set the option to load on the Computer and Device. I also only loaded Canada and the lower 49 States.

I ran into a glitch, this time when the process froze at the stage prior to loading the maps onto the Device.

Proper Posting Procedure

I know this is very basic, but I am new to posting and am not sure when to post using Create Content and when to post using Add New Comment. Also when should I use Reply and Quote.
I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

Delete a saved place, that wasn't an address

I was playing around and somehow created a saved place.

This wasn't created via address, it was an in-advertand save from a callup from custom POI's browsing...

When I search saved places I see it as a separate entry, not among the Saved addresses....

Move my destinations and history to a new Garmin unit

I think it is possible to back up and then restore my destinations and favorites to a new Garmin unit.

Can someone point me to that procedure?
Thanks.

Can't Delete a Saved Place

Hi,

I have tried to delete a saved place several times. What happens is I delete the saved place and it is removed (verified) however when I turn the unit back on it is back.

Thanks

Proximity Alerts for Saved Places

I have a nuvi 2797LMT and would like to add proximity alerts to some of my saved places.
If that's possible, how do I go about it?
I have done it with custom poi's, but would like to add proximity alerts to saved places.
I have the latest Poi Loader, GE and POI Editor.
Thanks in advance. smile

3597 question (using vias to build a route)

I just read the FAQ section and still uncertain and would like to know the following.

On my 255W I can make a "route" of 1000 miles from point A to point B and have it take every interstate or backroad I want by inserting multiple vias. I've always used this method as it's simple, 100% efficient & works for me.

Switch from CSV to GPX format POI

I'm considering changing from a CSV format to GPX format for only one POI: Diner's Drive-ins & Dives... due to CSV POI hasn't been updated in quite a while....

Questions... Do I keep using the Audio WAV file, and BMP Icon, or is this part of the GPX as an 'all in one' file....

Thanks

Choosing specific Waypoints from all Waypoints

I have data for waypoints(Campground coordinates for the entire US)in a file, but I only want the listings for a specific state or area.

Can I import this data into Garmin Basecamp and then graphically identify campgrounds in a specified area and save to a folder.

Thanks

Garmin Glo With Newer Smart Devices

Does anyone have any experience with Garmin Glo while using apps like Viago, HERE, Waze or Garmin Streetpiliot Onboard on their smart device?

https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/oem/sensors-and-boards/glo-/...

I’m thinking of trying the product but at $99, it’s a lot to spend if there is little or no performance boost.

Thank you.

Backup Camera for Garmin

Garmin has offered a "20" backup camera for some time coupled with a 7 inch GPS. That's too big for me but they recently started offering a "30" backup camera which their website indicates will work with their GPSs as small as 4.3 inch (specific models). Reviews I can find for the 20 camera are generally positive but nothing yet on the 30.

Beginners Exercise 1

Looking for this prior to attempting a backup...
I'm finding everything else but..... ??
