I got the dud! Problem Forum for the Nuvi 7xx series

Received my Nuvi 750 with the objective of using my existing GTM20 FM traffic and MSN direct receivers with it.

BUT the unit locks up when either the MSN Direct receiver or the FM traffic receiver is powered on.
Both receivers work on the respective Nuvi 6xx series. Unit (V2.2) and traffic receiver(s) microcode are current.

Text To Audio !!!

While giving direction, why does my Nuvi 350 just says, "Turn to Baltimore" instead of saying "Turn to Baltimore Washington Parkway?"

Old Guys Rule

Navigon 7100???

I have a Magellin Maestro 4040 that i got a few month back, overall its a great unit but i just heard about Navigon 7100. Besides free traffic report that comes with Navigon it has "photo-realistic 3D images of junctions" and "lane assistant". Can anyone tell me if Navigon is really that much better or just a useless sat-nav with cool features ))

Garmin Etrex Vista C and POI

Being a new member, I am searching for what I suppose are answers to old questions. I use my Vista C with my laptop. nRoute sees the GPS with no trouble. However Garmin's POI utility will not see the Vista C when attached with the same USB cable. Is this possible?

poi alerts (select as destination)

I have been giving my c340 a good work out lately but noticed one thing that I need to get answer on.When the alert for my poi sounded and appeared on my map screen I thought I could just touch the alert and it would give me the option to select to go to that location.It didn't so based on that is the right approach to go back to your custom poi's and then select the location fom there which I kno

Nuvi 650 or 350?

Maybe I'm missing something here but I don't understand why anyone would buy the 650 over the 350. I mean, other than a slightly wider display and a little better resolution, the two are exactly the same, so my question is, can anybody make a case for having the 650 rather than the 350? The 350 even has a longer battery life.

The Basics

I'm brand new to GPS.

Is there someplace where I can find out the basics such as POI formats, How to create a POI file, etc.


Problem with Nascar Race Track POI

There seems to be a problem with the updated Nascar POI. The last line is being rejected when importing the file into my unit. I think it was updated by Miss POI to include line #39 which is the line that is being rejected. It looks okay to me, but it still won't work...maybe Miss POI can look at it.

Chatty Kathy thread for the week of November 12th 2007

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

new garmin models ?

Hi: I'm considering buying another gps unit. while browsing amazon, I noticed that they are advertising a sale on nuvi units with a note that they are no longer in production and will be available for a limited time. Has anyone heard of Garmin coming out with new models??

NUVI 660/ POI File

Being a newbie, I have a question, I have downloaded a file to a folder on my computer, then opened the POI loader, copied the file to a SD Disk on the NUVI. Question is how do I get the NUVI to read the disk so that I can use the POI file?
