    Hello all.
    Tell me, please, with this mod I can enable the Smartphone Link for Nuvi 2455?
    I just do not know whether there is a bluetooth module in it?
    Also, please show me a microphone that would enable ASR.

    2455 -
    No bluetooth chip
    no microphone
    no components of the microphone.
    In the model with 64MB RAM can not enable ASR.

    After flashing the region bluetooth button will appear, but will be useless.

    Default 3590LMT and tracks

    Question about tracks/trails/travelogue on a Garmin 3590LMT in Europe (Holland).

    If I have "travel log" ticked, a track log is created, which is shown on the map.
    That travel log can be deleted via "Applications" -> "Where was I" using "Clear Travel History".
    If I know where that travel log is stored (and in what format) on the 3590, I would be able to put a track/trace/travelogue (made within BaseCamp) there, and thus I can run on that track.

    Is this a possible option?

    Or else is it possible to disable (or only on request) the automatic rout calculation?

    Thanks in advance for any reaction.

    The Log is in Current.gpx and NVRAM
    EveryTime the Nuvi Boots Current.gpx is created anew from NVRAM.
    I think what you are trying to do is not possible in the Nuvi range.
    What you can do is open the current.gpx in basecamp and convert track to route with many points and then change the points to off road in trip planner.
    In this way you can sort of create an off road route that is sort of suitable for mountainbiking etc.
    Otherwise just buy an outdoor device. (LOL)

    Neil, I bought my 3490 brand new from our local electronic store back in 2012 and it have never been modded before. Everything on it is all stock, untouched, besides the regular Garmin software updates. The ecoRoute HD must be enabled by default for the US. With that being said, are the instruction you posted the only way to enabled/disabled those features? Or is there another way? I'm just asking because I'm new to the modding GPS stuff. If this is the only way to enabled/disabled features, does it matter what software version my 3490 have? My 3490 software version is on the latest 8.20. Also, I have just finish reading the instructions from the "New and Easy Procedure" and I have quite a few questions to ask, they are;

    1) The "Garmin update files" download have expired, where's the new file download?
    2) It says "Firmware" required, what firmware? I click on it and it takes me to the "Garmin Receivers Firmwares" forum?
    3) It says "Open RGN_Tool --> drag nuvi34xx_GCDFile__710.gcd to RGN_Tool" but I'm on software version 8.20, does it matter?

    I have a ton of questions to ask but I'll stop for now since the above questions seems to be the most important to me at the moment. Let me know if I should continue asking questions here or move over to the "2xxx and 3xxx series enabled features" thread. Thanks guy, I'm still trying to learn

    @3490lmt
    I've moved your post above from [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. In there i said to you this:

    .............
    Apart from purchase which i think is only about $10 anyway, you can modify rgn140 as detailed in Post #1 here, checking ecoRoute Standard and unchecking ecoRoute HD & ecoRoute Purchase. Please download the app and get a copy of rgn140 off your unit to open as 140.bin so you can then see what's checked and what's not. As to your 3 questions:

    1) Download V8.20 firmware here:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    2) That's the firmware, v8.20 GCD file. You can get RGN_Tool from turbo's site via the link is in cat2115's post or get it here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    3) That tut was written when 7.10 was the latest, your unit runs 8.20 firmware so you should use that.

    We have a saying downunder: 'Just have a go, mate!' i reckon you will probably be able to work it out when you try.

    If you then need further help as to how to proceed post again, but only after you've seen what you've got enabled in 140 now.

    I appreciated your help Neil, but I still need the "Garmin Updater Files" which suppose to have these folders after you extract it, "3xxx series enable features application" folder, "For backup region 140.rar", "For write back reg 140.rar", and "READ ME.txt"...those files are mentioned on the instructions #4. Also, can I use a SD card that have other files in it that's not related to the Garmin files? Or does it have to be a EMPTY SD card?

    OK, got it now. Standby and i'll make a pack to replace the dead link when i have time. Check again later.

    Please only use a completely clean empty microSD. It it has anything else on it there may be problems.

    EDIT: Garmin Updater Files link renewed in Post #1 [cat2115 quote]. Also here:

    Alright, everything went smoothly and best of all, it worked! It turns out to be that "EcoRoute HD" and "EcoRoute Purchased" were checked and NOT "EcoRoute Standard" ...this is probably a default for the US 3490 version since I bought it new from our local electronic store. I also checked the "Media Player" and "Video Player" and they both are showing up on my App list but I haven't test to see if they actually works. But again, I just wanted to thank Neil, Catymag, dasilvarsa, and everyone else for taking the time to answer all my questions, I appreciated it guys I will be back for further mods when needed
