    Soft nuvi 3597 NA: Possible to add MP3 & Movie player functions?

    I have a 3597 LMT North American model. Since the model number starts with a 3 it was made in 2013.

    I've seen several others with the same model here. Have any of you had good luck adding features? I wanted movie player and MP3's but that's not an option yet.
    Has anyone used the XML editor to add features there then wait for the firmware to be hacked?

    Thanks all.
    Sticks and stones may break my bones, but don't count on it.

    No such functions in the fw of this model. I am sorry. Nothing additional can be enabled in 3597. Do not loose your time. Nothing is hidden.

    Why? It is a very nice device. You in the west have a lot of functionallity of these device. People here in the east play with the fws of this device due to the lack of functionallity and not having anything more to do with their device. (plus also the high rate of uneployment for talented young people with programming skills)

    But you can play with the new voices, ASR, themes etc. available in 3597. Plenty of things you can modify on your device.

    @astrodog
    Nothing to do with luck, Garmin has made 3597 firmware differently to 3x90 firmware. I'd already informed you that it's not possible with 3597 to add MP3 & Video players because of the lack of the feature support [no icons appear even if rgn140 is modded]. The previous posts were [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] by Admin. The subject is simply OT in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] which is for the earlier 2xxx/3xxx [2012 2xx5/34x0/35x0] models and the method described in here won't work for any 2013 devices such as 3597 sorry. Garmin disabled xml editing even earlier so I agree with ddabcd277, feature-wise, nothing is 'hidden' like in the earlier models. Even firmware manipulation may not be possible without access to it's source code because reverse-engineering of modern firmware has been rendered extremely difficult, but again i agree that if it's possible it'll come from the East [we working capitalists in the West have neither the talent or application to succeed with that ].

    I have an NA 3597 still running with modded rgn140 from earlier experiments last year, and although it runs perfectly it's otherwise the same as before modification.

    Posts moved from firmwares to new thread in discussion section.

    PS: Didn't absorb your comment about the '3' and 2013 before. Not so, the 3xxx range began with 37xx series from 2011. But yes, the 3597 was introduced in 2013 around Apr/May in US i think.
