I would like to enable a very basic function in 2595 (HWID 1371 US): Traffic. For some reason the information from traffic are not loaded and the receiver (two GTM36 and one GTM26 tested) can not initialize properly. Firmware version is 6.40 (the last) and Webupdater work ok, but without traffic files. Someone could tell me if the 2595 has the file trafficprovider.xml or other traffic files and, more importantly, where is this file? The structure of files and folders seems a little different from other Nuvis and that access to the internal memory is limited. Curious that it is not recognized as removable storage drive, but as Portable Device. I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be some kind of Garmin block for some regions where only a few models are sold with official traffic... I hope not to have posted on wrong topic (please relocate if necessary). Tks

I was able to edit the 140.bin file and update it, but my traffic cable still does not work?
No settings in 140 for TMC. Check your cable or subscription.
I have a 2555lmt and it has lifetime sub, it was working before I updated my unit with the 140.bin and now it does not see it. My device is for USA and Canada, does the 140.bin change my region so it does not work?
I forgot to mention, it brand new
Delete 140, reboot and it should restore original settings. Maybe the problem is somewhere else. Check the cord, is there coverage in your area, has the unit acquired sattelite signals etc.
I will try that and reboot. now just delete the 140.bin at the root of the SD that I updated it with and reboot? or is the 140.bin some were else on the main unit now? sorry for the basic questions
I remove the 1: 140.bin, and it still has the same features as when I updated with the 140.bin.. does this update the files on the unit or the firmware? is it also possible to copy my backup of all the system files back to the unit to put it back to original state?
I tested my cable in another 2555 unit and the is working in that unit, but not mine. now can I copy everything from my friends unit to mine to fix this?
