Need to replace my Michelin tires, what kind should I get for my 2007 Lexus GS350


The Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires have great handling characteristics, quieter than the Michelin and more durable tread. Will easily get 2x the tread life over the Michelin.

Backup and Restore Favourites on Garmin Nuvi Satnav


If your garmin nuvi satnav becomes faulty it may have to be reset or indeed scrapped. Either way you lose the places saved in your favourites folder.

If you have backed them up to your computer it's a simple matter to restore them to your reset nuvi or to a new one.

To Backup Favourites in GarminNuvi Satnav


Instructions for PC:
  1. Connect the Garmin nuvi satnav to your computer
  2. Go to the Start menu
  3. Choose My Computer (or Computer for Vista and Windows 7)
  4. Right-click the Garmin nuvi drive and select Open
  5. Double-click the Garmin folder (For nuvi 1xxx series units skip this step)
  6. Double-click the GPX folder
  7. Right-click on the Current.gpx file
  8. Choose Copy from the right-click menu
  9. Right-click on any blank area on the desktop
  10. Choose Paste to put a copy of it on your computer's desktop
Instructions for Mac:
  1. Connect your garmin nuvi satnav to your Mac
  2. When you see the Garmin nuvi mounted to the desktop, double-click on it
  3. Double-click on the Garmin folder (For nuvi 1xxx series units skip this step)
  4. Double-click the GPX folder
  5. Click once on the Current.gpx file
  6. Go to the Edit menu at the top of the screen
  7. Click Copy "Current.gpx"
  8. Click any blank area on the desktop
  9. Go to the Edit menu again
  10. Click Paste Item
Now, if for some reason you need to put the file back onto your garmin nuvi satnav, you will need to send it over to your satnav using a program. For the PC, you will need MapSource which can be downloaded at:http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=209

To send the file back to the satnav using MapSource on a PC:
  1. Connect your Garmin Nuvi satnav to the PC
  2. Go to the Start menu
  3. Highlight All Programs (Or just Programs for Vista and Windows 7)
  4. Highlight Garmin
  5. Click MapSource
  6. Click on the File menu
  7. Select Open...
  8. At the top where it says "Look in:", select Desktop
  9. At the bottom where it says "Files of type:" select GPS eXchange Format (*.gpx)
  10. Click on the Current.gpx file
  11. Click Open
  12. Click on the Transfer menu
  13. Click Send To Device...
  14. Select the GPS in the Device drop-down list.
  15. Click Send
Currently MapSource does not work with the Mac operating system so you'll either need access to a windows computer or a windows environment on your Mac to send the file back to your satnav.

How to update your Garmin Satnav maps


To update your garmin satnav map you must have your satnav registered. If it's already registered skip to paragraph 2 below.

1. To Register your Garmin Satnav
  • Connecty our satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com
  • Select your country
  • Click on Register your garmin product
  • Follow the prompts
Note you will be asked to create a username and password. Write them down and keep them safe as you'll need them again anytime you want to update your maps

2. To update your maps

  • Connect your satnav to your computer and go to www.garmin.com
  • Click on myGarmin and log in
  • Click on myMaps.
  • If there's an update available it will be shown beside the name of your map.
  • Click on Get Update and follow the prompts.
Note map files are large so you'll need a broadband connection to download them. If you don't have broadband you'll have an option to buy the update on DVD.

  1. If The Map Is Too Large To Install To Your Satnav
    When you go to download the map by default it tries to download it to the satnav i.e. not the SD/Mini SD card. You need to change this. When the website recognises the satnav follow the prompts. It will give you 3 options for the download destination.
    • Download to satnav,
    • Download to Computer and Satnav or
    • Download to computer.
    As the website is updated, from time to time, the method of selecting the download destination changes. Sometimes it shows up as a drop box with a drop-down arrow showing your satnav name. Click the drop-down arrow and select the option to download the map to your computer. Sometimes it shows the 3 options as text headings with tick boxes beside them and you get to tick the option you want. Whichever way it shows up select the option to download the map to your computer. This will install it on your computer's hard drive.

  2. After it's downloaded the map should begin to install automatically. (If not double click on it and it will). It should be allowed to install to your satnav first as Garmin will not allow it to install to your SD/Mini SD card unless it's first partly installed to the satnav. This is so they can ensure that it's installed to the correct satnav.

  3. To Install The Full Map To Your SD/Mini SD Card
    To install the map to your SD/Mini SD card, insert the card into the card slot of your satnav and connect it to the computer. Click the windows start button on your computer. Then click the GARMIN progam and then MAPINSTALL. This runs the map installation program. When the install program finds your satnav and you get the option to install the map there again by default. Click on the drop-down arrow, where it shows your satnav as the destination, and select the drive letter of the SD/Mini SD card. This will be different to the drive letter for your satnav. The map will then be installed to your SD/Mini SD card.


  4. Problems With Older Nuvi Satnavs Reading Maps On 4 Gb Or Higher SD Cards
    When you install a map to an SD card older nuvi satnavs can have difficulty getting the satnav to read it. It will install to it without problem but when you try to operate the satnav then it cannot load the map and will close down the satnav unless you remove the SD card. The reason for this is that 4 Gb and higher cards are SDHC which operate differently from SD. To solve this problem you should use a class 2 SDHC card, which is the slowest type available. You can identify the class by the small figure on the card. It will be either 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10. Before you install the map format the card as described below. Also use webinstaller to check that you have the latest version of operating software on your satnav.

  5. Format the SD card with "Panasonic SD Formatter" available from http://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/sd/download/sd_formatter20.html rather than the standard windows format function. Select the fast format option and be sure you have selected the drive letter of your SDHC card as it will format your hard drive or indeed your satnav just as easily if you select one of them by mistake.

  6. To update your software or check that you have the latest version, you can download webupdater from http://www8.garmin.com/support/collection.jsp?product=999-99999-27
    Connect your satnav to the computer and run the program. It will search for any updates to your software.
Class 2 SDHC cards are harder to find in shops today as they are being replaced by the faster classes. They are however still easily available on ebay if you can't find one in the shops.

I am traveling ion europe and have purchased a set of european maps for my nuvi 1300. i need to transfer the maps from the sd card to the nuvi 1300


If you bought your satnav in the USA don't transfer the maps to your satnav. The USA version of the satnav won't work in Europe. If you bought the satnav in Europe you should only have to plug the SD card into the satnav for it to work.

I had to exchange my last satnav as it wasn't working. I have a 'lifetime map upgrade' & am unsure how to download it onto my new one!


If you had a lifetime map upgrade for the old satnav I'm afraid it died with the satnav. Lifetime in this case refers to the lifetime of the satnav. Unless the new satnav came with a lifetime map upgrade also you'll either have to buy one or get the shop where you exchanged the satnav to pay for one. You can get details of how to update your maps at http://www.fixya.com/support/r5628920-update_garmin_satnav_maps

Is there a satnav app for htc hd7


Yes there is a GPS navigation application for that phone.

It runs Windows Mobile 7 and therefore you can use TeleNav

Not working in charging process


When the satnav is connected to the car charger sometimes there can be a problem with the mini USB plug at the back of the satnav. The plug appears to be pushed in fully but it's not. This causes the satnav to stop working and show a picture of a satnav connected to a computer. If this is your problem push the mini USB plug in further and it should solve your problem.

Best tires for 2007 Lexus GS AWD


For a GS350 AWD : MICHELIN P225/50R17/XL 98V.

Michelin is the safest, "quietest" and best tire on the market. Once you get past the sticker shock the longevity and ride performance far outlasts anyting else on the market.

If you are not in a climate that has snow, choose the Primacy HP series 225/50R 17 94V.

Either will do but go Michelin for your vehicle.( no...I don't work for Michelin...just bought alot of them over the years)
