You can try running "ccleaner", a free download. It will assist in removing corrupt registry entries. Then try downloading your GPS application and reinstalling.

Just bought a Garmin Nuvi 2597LMT for my car. Trying to download software for map updates and it says I need Window Vista. I have Windows 7 Professional. So I need to return my new gps to the stores and...


If the download procedure is done through your web browser, you could have issues. If there is a specific program that you load and run on the PC to get the download, then you may be able to get around the problem. If you right-click on the executable for the download software, you should get a "properties" window. Look for a tab labeled "compatibility". Click on this tab, then click the check box for compatibility mode and select the pull-down for Windows Vista. This may work for you.

Where do I find nuvi directory


If you want to delete files, connect the Nuvi to your computer with the appropriate USB cable. Then double left-click on the File Explorer for the system (Computer/My Computer on Windows). This is just a double click on a Macintosh system. Then double left-click on the Nuvi; it will be in the removable storage list (like a USB flash drive). Then, if needed, open a folder and then single click on the file to delete. Press the Delete icon or your keyboard's Del key. (Right-click and choosing delete works on Windows.) Be careful that you do not delete a system file from the Nuvi. The file may not be saved in the trash for restoration. Then use the Trash (Mac)/Eject (or Safely Remove Hardware) for Windows to disconnect the Nuvi from your computer.

If you just want to reset a Setting to the factory defaults, do not connect to a computer. From the Nuvi's screen, select Settings and then a category (if needed). Then choose Restore.

The manual for the Nuvi 50LM is available on the product support page: http://support.garmin.com/support/manuals/manuals.htm?partNo=010-00991-21&language=en&country=US . The direct link to the owner's guide is : http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/nuvi_30_40_50_EN_OM.pdf . This manual covers several Nuvi models. (You will need Adobe Reader or a similar program to read/print the manual.)

I hope this helps.

My garmin 530hcx has locked up on the opening screen...is there a master reset sequence? I have removed the batteries and still won't work! Also, it won't shut off once turned on and locked...


f a device is locking up and has a long noise or beep when powering down, this is due to hidden data being transferred to the microSD data card. These hidden files and folders are being created by the computer and sent to the data card in addition to the maps, waypoints, routes, tracks and pictures that were selected. The following GPS units could experience this issue.
  • eTrex Legend Cx
  • eTrex Legend HCx
  • eTrex Venture Cx
  • eTrex Vista Cx
  • eTrex Vista HCx
  • GPSMAP 60Cx
  • GPSMAP 60CSx
  • GPSMAP 76Cx
  • GPSMAP 76CSx
  • Rino 520HCx
  • Rino 530HCx
To prevent this issue when the device is shutting down delete these extra unused or hidden files and folders from the data card. Examples of these folders are: .Trashes and .Spotlight-V100 folders. Since the Mac OS adds hidden files and folders to mounted removable drive volumes this process cannot be done on a Mac and will need to be done after every time the data card is mounted as a volume on a Mac.
To delete these folders the device will have to be placed into USB Mass Storage mode. To do this:
  1. Connect the device to the computer using the USB cable
  2. Go to the Main Menu
  3. Select Setup
  4. Select Interface
  5. Select USB Mass Storage Mode
The device is now in USB Mass Storage Mode. At this time a window should open on the computer desktop displaying Removable Disk at the top. The Garmin folder will be displayed. Open the Garmin folder.
Do NOT delete the the following files:
  • gmapsupp.img
  • gmapsupp.unl
  • gmapsupp.gma
These files contain supplemental mapping. If delete will cause the mapping to be erased or unviewable.
If there are other folders or files on the data card, delete these. Some of these files or folders may be hidden and therefore will need to be unhidden*. Once you have done so, please disconnect the device from the computer and power it up.
*Note: To Display a file folder that is hidden:
  1. Select the Tools option on the window that appears on the computer when the device is in USB Mass Storage Mode
  2. Select Folder Options
  3. Select View
  4. Open the Files and Folders folder
  5. Open the Hidden Files and Folders folder
  6. Select Show hidden files and folder
  7. Select Apply
  8. Select OK
Once all of the hidden files and folders have been removed from the microSD Card the unit will not

I paid for a new up grade for U.S. Maps for my Tom Tom 720. IIt would not down load because of not enough space. When I turn the GPS back on. it was set on another country Gaum. How do I get it off?


Tom do not seem to overwrite the existing map file. So before trying to install the map, you need to delete the folder that contains the map. (It is important to read the next part before you delete the map folder). Once you have connected your TomTom to the computer, close the TomTom home window. Double click on my computer. You will see the TomTom hard drive as a drive (like you see the CD drive). Double click on that . Once the folders of the TomTom hard drive opens, look for a folder named USA_Canada_and_Mexico_P. (Please note: this name is for American continent. For others, this name will be different). Right click on it. click properties. Check whether the size of this folder is approximately around 1.3 GB to 1.5 GB. This is just to make sure we have the correct folder. After confirming this is the map folder, copy this folder to your computer for back up purpose. Once you have it safely in your computer, delete this folder from the TomTom hardrive. Go back to TomTom homesoftware. Use the map guarantee to update/Upgrade the new map. You will see this time around the installation completes without a problem.

Updated firm ware on 405


Make sure you have the latest ANT version.
Remove the pending firmwire program that wants to be transfered to the forerunner. (right-click + select delete)
Reset the watch (hold both buttons for 6 seconds, lift upper button, hold lower botton for another 3 seconds)
Then start all over again.
This fixed the problem for me.

at the user menu press the "-" zoom out key the "+" zoom in key and the repeat button which is on top of your unit. Once your in the "hidden" menu, select reset user data.. your unit will reset and everything will be clean. If your trying to delete specific addresses I would use software to sync up and explore your MRM's files.
