  • I've picked up a case for the Nuvi, a small case for the cables, a bean-bag mount, a couple extra SD cards, and some plastic sheeting to make screen protectors with.
  • I took my nuvi on a plane trip, last January. Never got a satellite lock the whole trip.
  • If you don't like where "Home" is located, you can change it. First delete your "Home" location from your Favorites. Then put your Nuvi in normal navigation mode, and make sure you have good satellite reception. Now, go to map view and press the gra…
  • I've been looking around for an app. that will do "snap-shots", or do some kind of "auto backup" of the Nuvi. I haven't found one, yet. So, for now, its select all, drag and drop.
  • Does the GPS know that the custom POIs are on the SD card? Yes. How does the menu show these files? Where to, Extras, Custom POIs All custom POIs are displayed together, in the same place, no matter if they are stored in the main unit storage, or …
  • Well, if you need custom POIs, and you have no space available in the Nuvi's internal storage...
  • There's another thread about "Storing POIs on Data Card" that has info on this subject. But, you can put your custom POIs on either the main unit storage, or on a SD card. On the Nuvi 2x5 series, after you put your custom POIs on the SD card, the Nu…
  • Using the POILoader program... there is a point where the program finds your devices. Of course, it finds your Nuvi, and shows the device. But, only one device is showing. Click the little drop-down arrow, and all available devices will show. Select…
  • Yesterday, I did a little "off-roading" with my Nuvi 2x5w. I wanted to see the results I got as I trekked to one of my favorite fishing spots. I had the topo map of my area loaded. Not very useful. Really, the only thing that was useful was the trip…
  • have you tried it on identical routes since? Well... in a way, yes. I had the problem while traveling to a camp site. While camping, I did the reset. Then, traveled from the campsite, back home, and did not have the problem. No, not identical routes…
  • I also experienced the weird-route-after-2010 Map update problem with my Nuvi 285W. My wife and I were traveling from western Washington to eastern Washington. Easy choice of routes... just stay on I-90. The Garmin kept telling me to take the side r…
  • As for the FM Traffic thing... I've had the free "Life Time FM Traffic" thing since I got my Nuvi for Christmas. I am well within a "service area". However, I have yet to receive any traffic information. None. ZIP. I just listen to the local radio t…
  • The compass direction will be displayed if you do not have a destination set. The compass will appear in place of the est. arrival time, at the bottom of the screen, just to the right of center. When you select a "go to" location, the "Arrival" will…
  • You can connect your 255 to a computer, and copy .jpg pictures onto the 255. Easy! Then, you can create a new favorite, or edit an existing favorite, and associate the picture to the favorite. When you want to navigate to a place that has a picture…
