I had the same problem. I called Garmin and the lady said if I had the software Map Source or something, that can do the trick, but the funny thing is you have to buy the software with Map Updates, or you get the software when you buy a new unit, and register the unit within 60 days of first satellite reception. Though I searched internet and someone said to copy a certain file/folder or I'd rather just copy the whole GPS folders and that might do the trick. You are right, this is a pain in the rear end.

How do I transfer favorite from one garmin to another ?


you can use a pc and usb cable to save your favorites and then upload them to the other nuvi. You can download "Base Camp" software for free on the Garmin website. The software is quite powerful and can transfer your data for you.

Would you like to back up a copy of your Garmin Nuvi 1490 Favorites and Waypoints?

Backup and Restoration Procedure for Favorites:

  1. From the Nuvi drive, copy '/Garmin/GPX/current.gpx' to a backup location on your computer.
  2. After a hard reset or loss of data, copy your backed up 'current.gpx' from your computer back to the '/Garmin/GPX/' folder on the Nuvi, but be sure to rename it 'temp.gpx'.
  3. On the next power cycle, the Favorites will be read from 'temp.gpx' into the non-user accessible memory area on the Nuvi where they are actually stored.
I hope that helps.

I have two of the same Garmin Nuvi 205 for my two cars. How can I copy the favorites


Hello,

Transferring your favorites is a very easy process, all you need to do is hook the unit with your favorites to the PC and grab the files from the Garmin drive and place them on your desktop. Then hook thee other unit without favorite t your computer and drop them in the same respecting folder. You now have all your favorites transferred.

Hope this helps!

How can I transfer Favorite Locations from a Nuvi 660 to a 1350


PLEASE TRANSFER YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS BY USING A FLASH MEMORY CARD FROM ONE DEVICE AND BEFORE A BACKUP. ONCE YOU ARE FINISHED, PLEASE INSERT IT INTO THE SECOND DEVICE AND UPLOAD THE DATA.

Garmin nuvi 1340 freezes on start up


If your nuvi series device is freezing on the map screen but still providing voice prompts there are two steps you can try to resolve the issue including updating the software using WebUpdater* and performing a master reset.

To download WebUpdater and update the software:
  1. Go to http://www8.garmin.com/products/webupdater/howtoinstall.jsp
  2. Follow the on screen instructions.
To perform a master reset on your nuvi series device: CLICK HERE

Warning: A master reset will erase all waypoints or favorites and will restore your unit to the default factory settings.
