  • Thanks Boyd for the update. I also was also unaware the RV 770 had 3d maping. (DEM) I will have to see if the menu started or something Anyone else found this on their 770 RV? The 780 has I it I believe.
  • Yes, I will check on this. I also don't want phone calls on my gps but want it for the other stuff. Thanks
  • Thanks for the information. Was just told that the RV 770 will be gone this year and the newer 780 and 785 will take its place. That is why I got a great price on the RV 770 of $229. Here is the link if anyone is interested. https://www.thegpsstore…
  • Found the .system directory file area. Now the Legal screen when you startup and must agree to all that Garmin says.
  • Now that I have had the RV 770 a few days I must say I'm very impresses in the speed that it responds to voice commands or screen commands. Screen is super sharp and I actually turned off Bluetooth and wifi for now. I updated it to the latest maps y…
  • Thanks for the info.
  • Thank Boyd. I have not received the RV 770 yet so I'm just digging on as much knowledge as I can and I see it has lots of bells and whistles. I do plan on adding my own POI as that will expand the POI's to meet my likes when RVing. Use POI Factory w…
  • All those improvements you mentioned will help make your navigating experience more enjoyable. If you use the traffic reporting feature, the Smartphone Link app is a big improvement. Thanks Alan, I guess I have a few more things to learn. I do know …
  • Solved my own problem. If you change the name of any CVS file with a number Garmin considers that a Speed Alert. What I did was number my poi files 1 - 10 and that is why they never showed up as a destination and couldn't go. Here is the overview i…
  • Thanks boyd for your input. So the resolution is no biggie which is understandable like you described. Now I think this new 770 just has the 12 volt plug like I have on my Nuvi 2595 which is fine by me. I also didn't like that magnetic mount they ca…

  • I forgot it has a almost 7" screen which us older folks like. lol
  • I think you need to call Garmin directly. I had some issues and they were very helpful over the phone and helped correct something within the programming and all was cured. Good luck
  • The new Garmin Maps are out. 2017.30 It took about 1 hr 30 minutes to download and install.
  • I'm in Phoenix Arizona. Just recently had a great visit to Italy a year ago. Father was born in Marsala Sicily.
  • Where in Italy are you located?
  • Good luck. Hope my backup works for you.
  • Yes you can copy all your directories from the Garmin to your harddrive. I do it at least once a year and store for emergencies. I use Win7 so I'm telling you how I do it. 1. To make all of Nuvi files visible you must unhide protected files via Wi…
  • It has been awhile and can't remember exactly the steps. If you don't have duplicate files all I can suggest is to clear your travel history and any stored routes or additional POI files you may have. Are you able to hook up to the computer and act…
  • Call Garmin. I had for some reason two full sets of maps in mine and ran out of space. The guy walked me thru what I had to do. It was to delete a particular file in one of the directories and reboot. That was it. If you go into the 2595 and look w…
  • I use the voice command MAGELLAN and works great. That was my first voice command and its hard for me to break old habits. :D
  • What are these locations, favorites, POIs? Do you have 2 maps selected by any chance? They are POI's as I nothing in my favorites as I delete them regularly. It almost seems like I have two POI files and it searches both and comes up with two entri…
  • It seems it backedup some files to my HD and checked on HD and it installed a PIO installer also. This may be the way of the future for Garmin. Other than the low level graphics in the program looks good. Come on someone else needs to try it out wi…
  • IF you're brave, you could be one of the first people to try the new Garmin Express program. :) I just did. It was a quick and easy install and found out that my Jill voice needed to be updated. It asked me if I wanted to backup before install and …
  • I have a very fast internet connection and computer and it took over 25 minutes to download. I also had to get the new version of the installed downloaded and installed on my computer. After that it took only a minute to install on my GPS. I think G…
  • When you press Tools - EcoRoutes do you get a screen that has 6 icons on it: I don't get those icons. Maybe this is just a fluke and i may have to call Garmin and ask about it. Thanks
  • Are you certain there is no ecoRoute option on your Nuvi? Did you read the link I posted above? Yes their is a EcoRoute Icon but when you press it it says I don't have anything to hookup.
  • I do not have any fuel price subscription nor ever had any EcoRoute installed. I'm the original owner. I did just update my maps and have all the latest software and firmware. I have not hacked my Nuvi or tried anything illegal. It just may be tha…
  • When the ecoroute device is connected the light should be blue. What type of Nuvi device do you have? When my ecoroute goes out I always have to reset my Nuvi (2595LMT). Have you the latest updates for the EcoRoute?
  • I think we may need to know what Nuvi you have to answer your question :D It was on a 2595. Thought it was in my signature. Anyway I reloaded all the firmware and software and all is fine now. The button works to change the currency rate. Thanks
  • The instructions for my new 2595 tell me that to put it in sleep mode I must push the on/off button once and to reactivate push it once again, and to turn the unit completely off hold the button down for three or four seconds until the screen goes b…
  • It would seem then that something in the map update process didn't work. Did you use option 1 (lifetime map updater) or option 2 (map update application)? I figures it out but not sure if this is the proper way or not. I downloaded new maps using Li…
  • I don't have a 2595, but taking a quick look at the user manual it looks lke you would go Settings > Map and Vehicle > myMaps. That should show you which map versions are installed and selected. I did and it says 2012.30 and not 2013.10 like I…
  • We use the "Jill" voice, so we also call the GPS "Jill". So we get her attention with "Yo, Jill". :) I would love to change what she says to something more lively than "Speak a command", but I think the American English file is imprisoned in the f…
  • no wonder, my speed is 1.44 Mbps where I am now in Fort Myers. In most cases you don't need the high speed like I have. If you are just browsing the web or checking email you really don't need much more than that. I remember when I started in comput…
  • ....You'd think they would have a little faster connection but all I could get out of the server was 23 Mb/ps Just an aside comment: Huh??? 23 Mbps is considered slow by an American? Jeeeeze, I'm lucky and thankful for my 2 Mbps connection in rur…
  • When I click on my Garmin Lifetime Updater, it starts but then a message says I do not have enough space etc as I said in my first post here. By space could it mean on your computers hard drive or do you think inside your GPS? You know you can look…
  • iggy, I only see the word GARMIN and a picture of a computer with it wired to GPS. Whenever I connect my import of pictures starts and I cancel it. OK. With the GPS hooked up now start your Garmin Updater program and tell me if you are able to login…
  • It may be on your computer and not updated into the GPS. The only way to find out is after plugging in your GPS to your computer and the computer see it is hooked up open the updater and it should say that it is ready to install the maps on your GPS…
  • Would doing a reset solve the problem of deleting files? Can I then install the recent update. Restore to Default - A restore resets the unit to the factory dafault settings. It only changes the settings on the device. All of the settings will be c…

  • If you are driving down Route 1 why would you want to know every street you crossed if you are heading straight down the route 25 miles. If you aren't in a specific route I do not think it will tell you every street. It seems to give random cross s…
  • iggy, thanks for posting this. Did you have another Garmin GPS prior to the 2595, and how does this one compare with the older one? I just got the 2595, and had an 855 (also voice recognition) before. I'm learning what I like better in each model. M…
  • I just finished a 800 mile trip using my new NUVI 2595LMT. Here is my review after the trip. Have you used "Trip planner" function in your nuvi? No I haven't. I wi;; after I understand its full potential. At this moment I don't usually have a long …
  • So does anyone have the 4GB MicroSD Card? Why is it needed for? Just curious.
  • When I updated map the other day it took at least 30 minutes to download to my computer. I have a very fast internet connection (25Mbps download)as well as a fast computer. I think the issue is with the Garmin servers and not us. Can anyone else com…
  • You should be able to pull up the POI for your base then save it so it's available through your saved places list :wink: Yes. I was hoping that I can view only my base POI file as my short cut. But I guess I won't be able to do that. Thank you for…
  • See page 16 of the manual, for favorite/saved locations. Thank you. I'm still not sure if my terminology is correct or not. I know how to look up and save a place. Thanks I'm now trying to make a " Short Cut Icon" for my Military base PIO file I u…
  • @iggy If you're not being told when to turn then you've got something turned off :wink: I assume you do get some noises, in other words the unit isn't muted? I do get the statement to turn right, etc. I was just joking about my Dear Wife (DW) gi…
  • POIs take up so little space I'd save them onto the nuvi. POI loader will place them in the POI folder. Unfortunately they're not merged with the Garmin ones, and aren't searched when you search the Garmin POIs. You should find them under 'Extras…
