  • @PeterJP, I totally misunderstood what your problem was. My bad! Boyd has better ideas. When you look at an Explorer window (assuming you are on a PC), do you see anything relating to your device?
  • You need to download the manual again from http://static.garmin.com/pumac//eTrexLegendHCx_OwnersManual.pdf
  • I am assuming that you were doing something prior to two weeks ago to find a specific, say, restaurant. Now, when you repeat those same steps with the updated maps, this specific restaurant in not longer found. Tell us - in detail - the steps that …
  • @mike, in trying to think this through, I am wondering why you are not using the " Custom Avoidances" features of your unit as detailed on page 7 of your manual. see http://static.garmin.com/pumac/nuvi_25x9_26x9_OM_EN.pdf. I don't think I have ever…
  • @junior, I realize that you want to view the tracks in Basecamp, but for purposes of trying to determine what is going on, it would be interesting to see if, indeed, "tracks" will display on the device. If they won't show on the device, that would i…
  • While the nuvi will have millions of locations in its database, there are many more millions that it does not have. As already mentioned, some examples of what you have searched for and failed to find would let us check them out on our devices. I su…
  • @BB, Take a look at a couple of sites that deal with TourGuide. See http://home.comcast.net/~ghayman3/garmin.gps/pagepoi.04.htm See also http://www.poi-factory.com/faq/index#TourGuide As far as I know, all automotive Garmins will permit TourGuide…
  • Bronco Billy, if what you want is for places that you have identified as "Favorites/Saved Places" to be shown to you as you drive along a pipeline, then you might want to look at "TourGuide". You already have the points you are interested in as Favo…
  • You might want to look at http://home.comcast.net/~ghayman3/garmin.gps/page16.htm Scroll down about halfway on this page to see a discussion on themes. You can create your own theme by copying one that is the close to what you would like, rename…
  • LDB, I always use the alphabetical listing myself (along with CTRL-F). By my count, there were 37 POI files either submitted or updated on poi-factory.com in the last 6 days. Your initial selections in fact were all several years old. So, my sugges…
  • LDB, as t923347 has already indicated, a great many of the file maintainers on poi-factory.com carefully monitor the status of their files and add/delete locations whenever things change. But changes will be variable. For example, IKEA locations are…
  • SD card should be formatted as FAT32. When installed, Windows explorer should recognize the Nuvi and the SD card as drives.
  • Read this portion of POI Loader help file carefully. "Speed Information Speed information can be included in the file name or in the names of individual POIs within the file. POI Loader determines speed information based on the following informati…
  • More Info: I decided to take the "gpx 92300.gpx" file and add "data" to the name and comments fields. When I used EPE to replace "name" with "name of the POI" and added " This is the comment field and it is being added in order to add size" to ever…
  • Start with blank spreadsheet Enter the following in the cells indicated A1: lon B1: lat C1: name A2: -69.8700 B2: 44.700 C2: name A3: =A2-0.0007 B3: =B2-0.0002 C3:name Now - copy A3:C3 to A4...A65536 Save file as "MaineCalifCross.csv" Then, in anot…
  • The file with 82589 entries is 47,986 KB (just under 42 MB)
  • OK - more data (and numbers are just what it turned out I got by doing "merge opens" with Extra POI Editor (EPE)) POI Loader will load a .gpx file with 79612 entries to a blank directory on my computer and create a .gpi file. It will fail if I imme…
  • Find something really odd. As I previously posted, I found I could load a file with 79661 entries but not one with 82589 entries. My technique is to run POI Loader asking it to put the .gpi file on the computer in the same directory that contains t…
  • I am finding that I can load a .gpx file with 79991 POIs, but not one with 82589 (nothing magic about the numbers - just trying to zero in on what the max is for these POIs (a mixture of Walmart and Jo-Ann points). Sometimes POI Loader will fail b…
  • Page 3 of the manual indicates that you can assign categories to a "Saved" location AFTER you have saved at least 12 locations. Maybe that is the problem.
  • It certainly sounds like your unit was "pressed" up against something in your bag while it was not in "off" mode (ie: just sleeping). If so, who knows what the unit thought you were asking it to do. As you found out by reading older Forum posts, ma…
  • To clear a device of "Favorites/Saved Places", the first step should be to make a backup of the "Current.gpx" file which is usually in the GPX folder (and in some devices, under the Garmin folder). As mentioned above, the "Current.gpx" file is an "o…
  • I believe your are misreading this. As I understand it, ALL spartphones EXCEPT Nokia or Blackberry ARE compatible.

  • ... If you are saying you can not edit an address within a saved trip, that is correct. You would replace the incorrect point with one that has the correct address. Agreed. The reason I was interested in "Edit" had to do with my wondering what woul…
  • On Trips, wonder what the logic is if I have changed a Trip between Backup and Restore. Say I added or deleted a Destination from the trip. The name remains the say but the trip itself is now different. By the way, Trip Planner implies that I can "…
  • ... So I thought I'd check all of the GE backup and see what and how things were restored. I started out with the POI, GPX, .system/SQlite and .system/Trips folders completely empty on my 3597. I then ran the GE Restore function with my Nuvi a…
  • ... I'm not sure either. Express says it will transfer 'favourites such as saved waypoints and routes', so it's unclear (at least to me) whether that includes 'trips' as used by the newer nuvis. My guess would be that it simply automates the copy …
  • Maybe the problem is with the word "split" which I understand is not possible. But I thought that "region(s)" could be installed to internal memory and later you could add other "region(s)" to the card. Are we into semantics?
  • ... Express will either load a map to the nuvi if enough space or to the card if not. It doesn't split map files across the two. Interesting. What does MapUpdater do?
  • I managed to get a nuvi 52 GarminDevice.xml and it indeed shows that Current is "OutputFromDevice".
  • I agree that a full backup of the device is the best thing one can do. Things go wrong. Glitches occur. Make sure that you computer allows you to see extensions and hidden files: Step 1: Hold down the “Windows Key” and press “E”. Windows Explorer…
  • Note that .gpx files will be recognized by the device ANYWHERE on the device. Most of the time .gpx files will be in the \GPX folder but often people put them in other places - like in the POI folder thinking they will become Custom POIs (which they…
  • Backing up Favorites/Saved Places to the computer is a good way to not lose these valuable places. HOWEVER, an even better action would be to back up the entire device. Making a full backup is a good idea any time changes are about to be made to the…
  • I am being told that there are some devices (the 50 series) where current.gpx is not an "OutputFromDevice" type of file; that it can be replaced (using the computer) with a new file that will then become Favorites when the device is rebooted; and t…
