SOURCE: garmin nuvi 750 won't say street names after upgrade to 2009 maps

User's manual available at www.garmin.com. Select "support", then "Manuals". Enter "mobile electronics"+"automotive"+"model #". Manual says that selecting a language with a person's name will speak street names.

SOURCE: Consistent error entering garmin etrex coordinate in google earth

Consistent errors are usually projection or datum related. If you are taking coordinates collected in one projection and displaying them in your GPS in another, you the points will offset. I'm not talking about the decimal degrees 00.000n 000.0000w vs 00 00 00N 00 00 00W. I'm talking about the geographic model to represent the surface of the earth. Google Earth generally uses a geographic projection with WGS 1984 or WGS84 Datum. Make sure you are using the same settings on your GPS.

SOURCE: GARMIN 60CX Contour Map display: Sent maps to

The topo maps are low in the map hierarchy. If another mapset is loaded at the same time and is also checked it will likely "cover" topo. I think the Recreation maps are the only one's lower in the hierarchy.

You will need to fully uninstall the garminmapupdater_naeu_g.exe and then reinstall it to correct this problem. Also install free antivirus software and keep that updated and running to prevent bad files from downloading on your harddrive. Click on the link below to read more:

Garmin Nuvi 1350 showing on screen "no map data available"


Shut off the nuvi.

Remove any memory card (if equipped) from your nuvi.

Plug the GPS into your computer via USB cable.

Open the Garmin "drive" icon in "My Computer"

Navigate to the x:/Garmin directory or "folder" (where "x:" is the drive letter assigned to your Garmin). Locate either map files set(s) named: gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img.

Some units store map files in the hidden x:/.System directory instead. To view the .System folder and contents, you must direct your computer to display both the "system" and "hidden" files.

If you lack large files named either gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img (about 1 GB or more); your maps are missing from the internal memory of the nuvi and will need to be reloaded.

If you pulled a memory card above, reinsert it and check the directories for the same gmapsupp.img or gmapprom.img files. If they're not present there, the maps should be reloaded.

I hope this helps

How do I save a new waypoint on my garmin 76cx?


Hi!

From your User's Manual Page 7:

You can create waypoints using three methods. Press the Enter/Mark key while at a location, create a waypoint on the Map page or you can manually enter lat/lon coordinates.

TO MARK YOUR CURRENT LOCATION
Press and hold the ENTER/MARK key until the Mark Waypoint page appears. A default three-digit name and symbol will be assigned to the new waypoint. To accept the waypoint with the default information, simply select OK.
To change any information, select the appropriate field and press ENTER to open the on-screen keypad. After entering and confirming the information you wish to use for the waypoint, select OK.

CREATING WAYPOINTS USING THE MAP
On the MAP page, use the ROCKER to move the pointer to the map item you wish to mark.
Press and QUICKLY release ENTER/MARK to capture the pointer location and open the information page for the map item.
Select SAVE. If there is no information for this point, a prompt will appear saying "No map information at this point. Do you want to create a user waypoint here?". Select YES.

If you require a User's Manual, you can view/download it from:
http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/GPSMAP76Cx_OwnersManual.pdf

Hope this is helpful to you.
Good Luck!

I have no Maps when I turn on the Garmin, there is a blue arrow and thats all, no back ground at all


The map may be unselected. To select it;
  • Press TOOLS (The spanner icon on the right bottom of the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS or LOCALE on models that don't have a SETTINGS icon
  • Press MAPS
  • At the bottom of the screen press MAP INFO
This takes you to a screen that shows whatever maps are on the satnav. If there's not a tick beside the map name the map is unselected. Press on the map name and it will become selected. This should solve your problem.

My Garmin cannot find the lake house. Directions


You may need to update your maps. If they are up to date (2010) then its just bad data from Navteq. You can add the waypoint in your nuvi and custom name it which would provide better results.

Can i upload any type of digital maps to the GPS


Units that provide fullmapping capability cannot use the standard file formats used by thedigital map publishers for on-screen mapping and instead use in-builtvector maps (base map data). These units will generally allowadditional maps to be uploaded but these are only available from themanufacturer, in a proprietary specific file format, so there is thepotential for some lack of flexibility when choosing to buy a mappingGPS unit. Garmin and Magellan are the two major manufacturers whosemapping GPS unitsuse proprietary only maps. Having said all this however, you can stilluse other non-proprietary digital maps but not for the purpose ofloading the map to the screen, but for the transfer of attributes toyour GPS (eg. waypoint file). To transfer waypoints and other datafiles to your GPS you will require mapping software.

SD Card slot Garmin nuvii 260


I have found that waypoints, routes and directions work only when I load it on the unit itself as opposed to the SD card. The SD card works more like an expansion slot for pictures or maps.

When you open up Mapsource you'll see the map on the right and the pane on the left, above the pane there are 4 tabs (Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks). As you select a map or create a waypoint, route or track. It will put a number in parenthesis which will increase in numbers as you add an item corresponding to each category, for example if you create a waypoint. So once you have done that, click on the TRANSFER tab in the Menu selection bar and choose SEND TO DEVICE. A window will pop up that will say...Device: with a drop down menu if your Garmin unit has an SD card in it, if not it will just show the Garmin unit. Then right below that there will be a section that says WHAT TO SEND with 4 check boxes that will say Maps, Waypoints, Routes and Tracks. Make sure that you have selected the Garmin unit, not the SD, and the waypoints, routes or tracks you want to send. I hope this solves your problem or at least points you in the right direction...

ETrex Legend, GPS Coordinates from Google Earth Don't Match Basemap


Are you sure you're using the exact same format on GoogleEarth and your GPS?

GoogleEarth: save the waypoints in a KML file (NOT KMZ) to your computer, naming it appropriately.
Go to http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/gpsbabel/ and convert the KML file to a GPX file, using their converter. They will present you with a file to download. Download it and send those waypoints to your unit and you'll be set to go.
