  • 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) http://www.javawa.nl/cleaneject_en.html

    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: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/cOnTheRoad-cAutomotive-p1.html

    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.
  • Driveassist 50 LMT-D

    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.
  • Driveassist 50 LMT-D

    Yep, got it, thanks. I'll email them later
  • Driveassist 50 LMT-D

    Can't help with 1) but for 2) run Express and look under optional updates, download the English voices which include British, US and Australian voices.
  • Postcodes

    Have you actually entered that address then? It works for me. Or are you simply relying on the postcode, which is often a general area and not a specific address?
  • CN NA 2017.30

    You may want to ensure you do a complete shut down of your device, if its just in sleep mode it may not pick up the new junction view file. Also see the list above and check you have the new file installed.
    I did that, and then went and reinstalled the map file. All is well now. Thank you. :)
  • planing trip want to add addresses to my favorites before I get there

    You might consider future use of those maps and/or future countries you may visit. If you plan to visit Europe a lot it may be best to download the whole map, cheaper than buying Greece/Italy first then adding other countries later. Or consider buying the SD card version, which you could then sell on your return to recoup some of your outlay. Note that neither the card nor the download can be updated later.
