Garmin/Nüvi series

nüvi® is a registered trademark of Garmin Ltd. and is normally rendered in all-lowercase letters. It only is captialised on this page where all-lowercase would break wikilinks or hyperlinks.

Garmin nüvi Track Hack

To convert the log files to GPX you'll need the small program that goes by the name wnutrak.

nüvi 205

On 3 April 2009 dcnuvi and emmex, two users of the GpsPassion forum, discovered a new way to get to the (already known) hidden GPX track logging menu for some of the nüvi models.

Go to the Where Am I screen (by tapping on the vehicle symbol in map view mode or selecting "Where Am I" in tools menu). Then tap on the words "Nearest", "Address" and "Junction" in the following order:

  • "Nearest" in "Nearest Junction" or "Nearest Intersection"
  • "Nearest" in "Nearest Address"
  • "Address" in "Nearest Address"
  • "Junction" in "Nearest Junction" or "Nearest Intersection"

This hack has been confirmed in the following model: 205.

Some firmware versions require a different key sequence:

  • v5.00: Go to the Where Am I screen (by tapping on the vehicle symbol in map view mode or selecting "Where Am I" in tools menu). Then tap in sequence near the corners of the location text box: bottom left, top left, top right, bottom right.

More informations: nüvi 205

nüvi 255

How to log GPS traces using a Garmin Nuvi 255 - See Nuvi 255

nüvi 2x5

See Garmin Nuvi 200 Track Hack

nüvi 1490T Track Log Hack

  • Go to the "View Map" screen
  • Tap on the "Speed" indicator
  • Press and hold center the speedometer until the "Diagnostics Page" appears
  • Select "Diagnostic Logging"
  • Select "Start Recording"
  • Check "GPX" then press "Start"

Log file is located in the "\.System\Logs\gpx" folder with the file name YYYYMMDD_XXXXXX.gpx (track log is already in GPX format).

Note: the "\.System folder is a hidden folder on the device (will not show up on the root drive in mass storage) and so it is not on the memory card. You will have to type it in manually into the address bar (example "E:\.system\").

There are a number of similar hidden features on the 14xx series described in this post Nüvi Hidden Menus

nüvi 2545

Same hack as for the 1490.

See Nutrak, which is GPL, has a Windows exe, Linux users must compile from source

SD card size

Information from Garmin about the maximum SD card size of the automotive units. Requirement is that the device has the latest version of software. Information is dated 2011-09-26.

Model description

nüvi 40

nüvi 50

Tracks

Can store 10 000 points in internal memory, writes them out in files afterwards. Up to 20 files may be created.

  • Current trace is stored in GPX/Current.gpx file.

Maps

Can use map files from an SD-card or internal memory.

  • Can put multiple map ".img" files on SD card in Garmin directory and select which ones you want to see from Nuvi Settings->Map->Info interface.
$ ls -ld /mnt/sdi1/Garmin/* -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1317306368 May 22 00:57 /mnt/sdi1/Garmin/france.img -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 68421632 May 22 01:11 /mnt/sdi1/Garmin/greece.img -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 455442432 May 22 01:21 /mnt/sdi1/Garmin/italy.img

To override map in the built-in memory, replace .System/gmapprom.img . This is the only way it worked for at least one user.

Waypoints

Similar to maps, a .gpx file containing waypoints can be copied to either the Nuvi internal memory or an SD card. In either case the file can be a name of your choice with a .gpx suffix, and placed in the Garmin directory. Be aware that the Nuvi will incorporate these waypoints into its internal list so if you later delete the custom .gpx file the waypoints will still be there and you'll need to clean them out some other way. Restoring a backup of the "Current.gpx" file (from before the waypoints were uploaded) does not eliminate them, which suggests the Nuvi has additional memory that is not exposed through the USB interface. The user interface does not provide a way to delete them other than a tedious one-at-a-time process.

Routes

Although you can upload the individual waypoints comprising your route, the nüvi 50 does not seem to recognize the concept of a route other than the routes it calculates on its own. An uploaded .gpx file containing route data seems to be ignored, and the user interface does not have an obvious way to select a preprogrammed route anyway.

nüvi 55, nüvi 57LM

nüvi 200

Track logging only available in software version 3.40 as a hidden feature and was removed in later versions. Recording interval is always one second. Battery life supposedly 3-5 hours, tested to be at least 3 hours.

  • Megabytes of memory available for tracks; 10 000 points fit in a MB. Models with the smallest preloaded maps have even a GB of free memory.
  • Can use map files from an SD-card.
  • No altitude information
  • Log conversion to GPX requires a custom program by the name wnutrak

For track recording in other software versions, see Garmin nüvi Track Hack

nüvi 2x5 Series

Thisv series includes the nüvi® 205, 205W, 255, 255W, 255WT, 265T, 265WT, 275T, 295W, etc. Produced from 2008 to approximatley 2012, this series has been discontinued by Garmin.

Track logging available in software versions 2.50 and 2.70. Recording interval is one second. If connected to a Windows, Linux or OS X computer, the nüvi 205 is shown as an USB mass storage device, the GPX file is located in folder Garmin\GPX\.

nüvi 350

  • OSM on 2 GB SD or internal works fine.
Disadvantages
  • Street search does not work.
  • Some symbols like bus stops are displayed as points.

nüvi 360

  • No GPS track logging feature for this device.
  • Possible to record POIs:
    • Simply add a location to your favorites.
    • Then find the file /Garmin/gpx/current.gpx (in GPX format) and use it as needed.

nüvi 370

Advantages

nüvi 760

The "Nearest" -> "Nearest" -> "Address" -> "Junction" hack from nüvi 200 has been verified on nüvi 760. A new screen appears, containing "Start Playback" and "Start Recording" appears, together with an unidentified button showing a camera logo...

This procedure doesn't work on Nuvi 760 with firmware 4.9. It worked before the upgrade.

nüvi 755 and 765 T

Garmin nüvi 765 T with OpenStreetMap

OpenStreetMap with Garmin nüvi 765 T and 755 works fine.

Advantages
  • Routing works fine.
  • Much more details than original maps (set Mapdetails to "Normal" in Large Cities because of delayed display)
Disadvantages
  • It's not possible to enter addresses.
  • No maxspeed in display.

nüvi 855

The nüvi 855 belongs to the 805 series, according to the owner's manual. Bluetooth (for hand-free phone calls) is not available on the nüvi 855, but apparently on the other models of this series.

nüvi 1240

Works fine with OSM maps and also with the free routable maps from perut (http://www.perut.org/). The nüvi has a world base map.

nüvi 1350T

Garmin nüvi 1350T tested. Maps work fine.

Track Hack is the same as for nüvi 1490T.

Advantages
  • Maps load reasonably fast from microSD card.
  • Routing works OK (see disadvantages).
  • POIs and additional info works good.
Disadvantages
  • Addresses don't work.
  • Does not display speed limits.
  • Does not display traffic.
  • Does not display lane assist.
  • Barriers don't work as expected (routes through closed barriers).

nüvi 1370T

Garmin's info and specifications.

More info may be at https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/30271/openstreetmap-for-nuvi-nuvi-1370t

nüvi 1390 T

Garmin nüvi 1390 T pro tested. OSM Maps for Garmin (All in one Garmin Map) works fine. Routing works fine (with some few strange shortcuts). Street name reading works fine. Normal logging works per default and is written in /GPX/Current.gpx. Diagnostic mode with logging can be reached via pressing the speedometer (see above) some five to ten seconds. The 1390 T has a slot for a micro-SD card, an 8 GB card works. The card must be formatted with FAT32, so file sizes above 4 GB are not possible.

nüvi 1440

Garmin nüvi 1440 tested with software V4.40. OSM Maps for Garmin works fine. Routing works fine, but it's not possible to enter addresses, so need to select from screen, or existing POIs. Normal logging works per default and is written in \GPX\Current.gpx and \GPX\Archive. nüvi 1490T Track Log Hack above does work

Has a slot for micro-SD, at least 8GB works.

nüvi 1450

Garmin nüvi 1450 tested with software V6.10. Just plugged in SD-Cards (2GB and 4GB) from my other Garmin devices (60CSX/Legend HCx) in the available slot and it shows the map and does routing.

works for me sporadically, depends on the map, incompatibilities?

nüvi 1490T

Garmin nüvi 1490T tested. OSM Maps for Garmin works fine. Routing works fine, but it is not possible to enter addresses.

Track logging available. The recording interval is one second.

If connected to a Windows, Linux or OS X computer, the nüvi 1490T is shown as an USB mass storage device, the GPX file is located in folder \GPX\current.gpx.

Advantages
  • Micro SD card slot that supports at least 8GB SDHC cards (maybe even up to 32GB)
Disadvantages
  • Track logging locks to the roads on the map.
    • Note: There is a hidden track log on this model. See hack above for 1490T to record without the "lock to road" feature.

nüvi 2457, nüvi 2495 and nüvi 2589

OSM-based maps work these devices (tested with garmin.osm.nl).

Map is not visible when put into the /Garmin directory of the device. When put into a /Map directory (create if not present) in the root directory, the map is visible. You have to go to Settings/Map&Vehicle/myMaps to enable the map.

If there insufficient space on the internal memory to add your map, you can replace the existing .System/gmaprom.img (tested on a nüvi 2589). Note that .System/ is a hidden folder; in order to access it, you might need to configure your file manager to show hidden files or to type the path directly.

nüvi 2460LTM

OSM Maps for Garmin create with mkgmap are working even with routing if stored as Garmin/gmapsupp.img on external SD card.

In mass storage mode the device has the usual ./GPX and ./POI folders were you can put waypoints and POIs, which will appear in the unit afterwards. Copying tracks and routes to the ./GPX folder seems to have no effect. Normal logging works per default and is written in ./GPX/Current.gpx. Diagnostic mode with logging can be reached via pressing the speedometer (see above) some five to ten seconds. The 2460 LTM has a slot for a micro-SD card.

Garmin Nuvi 200 review: Garmin Nuvi 200

Well, it seems Garmin heard our cries, as the company has released a new family of Nuvi devices that are more wallet-friendly. The Garmin Nuvi 200 series includes three models: the Nuvi 200 ($428.56) with preloaded maps of the United States and Puerto Rico; the Nuvi 250 ($482.16), which adds maps of Canada; and the Nuvi 270 ($599.99), which comes preinstalled with maps of the United States, Canada, and more than 30 European countries. For our review, we took a look at the Nuvi 200. This entry-level model boasts an even sleeker design and continues to deliver the same intuitive interface and accurate directions. It strips out some of the more advanced travel and multimedia tools to cut costs, but even so, we wish the price was slightly lower--more in the $300 range. Still, with a little shopping around, you can probably find a deal and for the money, you'll get a solid portable navigation system.

Design
At 3.8 inches wide by 2.8 inches high by 0.8 inch deep and 5.2 ounces, the Garmin Nuvi 200 isn't that much bigger than today's latest smart phones or PDAs; in other words, it's pretty compact. It helps that the GPS antenna is now integrated into the device, unlike older Nuvi models like the Garmin Nuvi 350, which had a flip-up antenna. And while the Nuvi 200 is probably a little too bulky to fit into a pants pocket comfortably, you'll have no problem carrying it in a bag, using it on foot, or transporting it between vehicles.


The Garmin Nuvi 200 is small enough to use on foot and can easily be thrown into a suitcase for use during your travels.

A 3.5-inch (diagonal) QVGA touch screen dominates the face of the Nuvi 200. The display itself is bright and sharp with a 320x240 pixel resolution and features an antiglare coating. Unlike the Mio C220, we had absolutely no problems viewing the Nuvi's display in various lighting conditions, including bright sunlight.

Aside from a power/lock slider switch on top of the device, there are no other external controls, so all commands are registered via the responsive touch screen. While we like the minimalist design, we think a volume dial on the side would've been nice. There is an SD card expansion slot on the left side, and the speaker and power connector/mini USB port are on the back.


The Nuvi 200 comes with a number of accessories, including an easy-to-install and secure vehicle mount.

The Garmin Nuvi 200 comes packaged with a car charger, a vehicle mount (dash and windshield), and reference material. The vehicle mount has a no-fuss design and is very easy to install in your car. It securely held the Nuvi in place, and there's a lock mechanism at the base of the apparatus to reinforce the connection between the suction cup and windshield.

Features
As the entry-level model of the Nuvi series, the Garmin Nuvi 200 has a very basic feature set. It does come preloaded with maps of the United States, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, though it misses detailed maps of Alaska and Canada. You can start planning a trip in a number of ways, including entering a specific address, picking a point of interest (POI), selecting a recently entered location, or choosing a destination from your Favorites list. Of course, if you don't need guidance, you can just have the Nuvi track your movements by tapping View Map. The system can generate directions by fastest time, shortest distance, or off road, and you can instruct it to avoid certain road types, such as toll roads and highways. And don't think you're restricted to only use the system in the car, as there are settings for pedestrian, bicycle, truck, and bus modes.

The Nuvi 200 offers turn-by-turn, text- and voice-guided directions, but it doesn't support text-to-speech functionality. This means the system won't speak actual street names; instead, it will give you more generic directions like, "Turn right in 500 feet." The Nuvi 200 also supports automatic route recalculation and includes a detour function if you want to avoid certain part of the given route. Maps are available in 2D and 3D view with day and night colors, and you can change it so north is always at the top of your screen or the direction in which you are driving. A plus and minus icon on the map screen allows you to zoom in and out, and there's also a trip information page that displays your speed, direction, trip time, and so forth.

The Nuvi 200 has a comprehensive POI database with all the major categories (gas stations, lodging, ATMs, and so forth) and more specific ones; you can even search for restaurants by type of cuisine. On top of the preloaded entries, you can add custom POI, such as safety cameras and school zones.

Of course, part of the allure of the Nuvi series is its travel features. Again, as an entry-level device, the number of travel tools is more limited than other models in the family. You get a world clock, currency and measurement converters, and a calculator. You can purchase additional travel guides preloaded on an SD card through Garmin; prices range from $49.99 to $160.70. Other goodies on the Nuvi 200 include a picture viewer and the Garmin Lock security feature, which prevents the unit from performing any functions until you enter a user-defined four-digit PIN or take it to a predetermined location.

Performance
We tested the Garmin Nuvi 200 in San Francisco, and from a cold start, it took the unit less than two minutes to get a GPS fix under clear skies, while subsequent starts were almost instantaneous. If the system is having any problems acquiring a fix, a pop-up message will appear onscreen and ask you if it should continue searching for satellites. If you're indoors and tap no, you can still plan trips and get a running demo of your route.

During free drives around the city, the Nuvi 200 accurately tracked our location. We also planned a specific trip from the Marina district of San Francisco to CNET's downtown headquarters, and the system quickly returned with a route. We also missed several turns to test the route recalculation rate, and after a few seconds, the Nuvi gave us new directions, always before our next maneuver.
