  • Dead battery, drive 51 usa lmt-s

    I agree with Boyd, you have tried all the normal solutions. I think it is definitely time for a call to Garmin. Be sure to call rather than using email support. Garmin has been known to cover unusual problems for devices even if they are out of warranty when you make a reasonable case in a live conversation ... email support, not so much. Call them and see what they will do.
  • Driveluxe 50lmtHD

    You can get better traffic reporting on the DriveLuxe if you use Garmin's free Smartphone Link app instead of the HD traffic receiver that comes with the DriveLuxe. Of course that begs the question of why have a Garmin if you need the smart phone anyway (as Boyd will be happy to point out :)) ).

    Smartphone link uses very little data (a few MB a day at most). Since you already have the DriveLuxe, I would suggest you try it if you haven't already.
  • Drive Units add new Trip Data Options

    PhotoBucket had become almost worthless with their obtrusive ads and slow load speed. Now they are completely worthless, and I can't imagine that they will survive long with this new pay to play policy.
  • gps blowing fuses

    Any chance you have it wired backwards? I think the tip should be positive and shaft negative.
  • i accidently formatted my nuvi 55lm

    @bongik ... Glad you were able to get it sorted out. Now, once you get your nuvi fully operational again, make a backup ;)
