  • Please help!!!Garmin GPSmap 62s cant read SD card

    So, just to be clear, do you have a file with a .gpx extension that you copied to the card? How did you convert the waypoints to a .gpx file? The card needs to be formatted as FAT32, which would normally be the default for a 16gb card. It could be a defective card, that is not terribly unusual.

    Try copying the file directly to the internal memory of the 62s and see if that works. If not, then there may be something incompatible insided the file, there seem to be different "flavors" of GPX. I would try opening the file in Garmin Basecamp or Mapsource and see what happens, if it doesn't work there, then it may not be compatible with Garmin's implementation of .gpx You can open .gpx files in a text editor and see exactly what's inside for troubleshooting.

    It shouldn't be necessary to "sync" anything. When the 62s starts up it should automatically read any data in a .gpx file on the card or in internal memory.
  • Importing custom POI's

    I'm not aware of the POI Converter software but it may be it that is taking the POI name and forcing it down to old IBM computer standard with an 8 character size limit.

    I'd suggest you give Extra POI Editor a shot as I haven't heard of this problem using it to convert OV2 to CSV files. You can find EPE at

    If that doesn't work and you don't get any more response here, I'd try where there are a lot of POI experts (many of them members here as well ;) )

  • Monterra spinning map

    Interesting that they sell a version with lifetime City Navigator maps.

    I guess nobody would want to use it in the city though, and anyway it only costs $800 so what do you expect? :D
  • Have I Been Done

    According to Garmin, this is the coverage of the UK and Ireland map. As for the rest, I'd say that's between you and the place where you bought it…

  • loss of drivers on garmin express

    Win10 is known to have issues with some Garmin devices in mtp mode. The normal fix is to set your device to mass storage mode. To do so:

    1. Start NUVI by itself and go to Volume Screen.
    2. Press the upper right hand corner of screen for 10 seconds.
    3. The Developers Screen will pop up
    (may see Configuration and Settings, if so select it)
    4. Scroll down to MTP SETTINGS
    5. Change from AUTO DETECT to MASS STORAGE
    6. Shut down NUVI and connect to PC
    7. It should now connect in mass storage mode.
  • GPSmap 60Cx - Buzz with OpenStreet Maps

    Just use the program I linked to above, it was written to address this exact problem (although I'm not clear whether it works on Sierra)

    FWIW, my main computer is a MacBook Air, also a quad core Mac Mini for video editing and a base model Mini for a media server. Have been using Macs since 1985 and Apple ][ since 1978.

    However I use a Windows machine for making maps and managing Garmin devices. But you have to cut Garmin a little slack on any 60csx issues. They did not even support that Mac at all when it was introduced. :)
  • Garmin 2017 Drive 51/61 series

    It looks like Garmin has introduced the 2017 models:

    I have not figured out what all the changes are, but one thing I see on the DriveLuxe and DriveAssist and DriveSmart is this: "Built-in Wi-Fi® for easy map and software updates". Also looks like they integrate with the Garmin Smart watches. And they have apparently dropped the LMT and LMTHD designations now showing as DriveLuxe 51-S.

    Don't know if this will help or not on the "Event saved" issue, but I suspect the message is related to the dash cam functions. I found this in the user manual, but I am not familiar with this model, so I don't know what you can or can't turn off:
    Enabling or Disabling Advanced Driving Assistance Features

    You can enable or disable advanced driving assistance features in the camera settings (Camera Settings).

    Select Settings > Camera.
    Select or clear the check box next to each warning or alert.
    I would probably try turning some alerts off one at a time to figure out which one is causing the frequent Event Saved alerts.

    Yep, got it, thanks. I'll email them later
