    nüvi 2595LMT

    Hi All,
    You may have noticed that nüvis purchased in the US have a predominantly green top-of-screen UI. If you purchase a nüvi in Europe this UI changes to a nice blue color. Personally, I hate the green color on US nüvis.
    2595LMT on amazon.com Amazon.com: Garmin nüvi 2595LMT 5-Inch Portable Bluetooth GPS Navigator with Lifetime Maps and Traffic: GPS & Navigation
    2595LMT on amazon.co.uk Garmin Nuvi 2595LMT 5" Sat Nav with Europe Maps, Lifetime Map Updates and Traffic Alerts, and Bluetooth: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics
    Needless to say, Garmin matches unit ID's to country of purchase and updates the corresponding firmware. So there's no way I can switch the UI from green to blue through any kind of official channel.
    Anyone have a safe hack for this?
    Thanks,
    Paul

    Changing map symbols icons on a Garmin 2595LMT

    I just got the 2595LMT and all is great with it.
    One thing I do not like are the candy map symbols on the 2595LMT
    Is there a way to replace these icons with STD ones?
    Like you find on the 200 or 1300 series units.

    Re: Changing map symbols icons on a Garmin 2595LMT

    We are taking about 2 different things here.
    Green or Blue US or Europe is not the question here.

    I am talking about the icons to add to a favorite.
    see attachment.
    These are not the STD icons you fine on other Garmin units.

    I would like to change then to the STD ones
    see this attachment.

    put map on sd card Nuvi 2595LMT

    Hey Guys,
    I just aquired a Nuvi 2595LMT. I realize that it has free map updates,but already have the new map that I downloaded earlier.It was the unlocked 2013.20. I just wanted to put it on the sd card. I had a Nuvi 660 and they went in a Garmin folder. The 2595 has the map in the .system hidden folder. The file I want to put on the sd card is gmapsupp.img. Are there other files I would need to include on the sd card also so that all the features of the 2595 work properly? Also,what would I name the folder on the sd card? Any help much appreciated. NOTE: Do not have Base map or other Garmin programs installed and never used them before. Thank you in advance

    Where are your posts? I have the same problems. One more question. I want to import predefined Routes with waypoints as .gpx file, but when I save the file in /gpx on 2595 it will not be recongnized. Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I'm not faliliar with the 2595 and I'm not sure how you created the routes in the GPX but this may help.

    On my 765 when I put routes out there in a GPX file the devide does not automatically see and load them. I have to go to a rout screen (I can't recall exactly where) an the is an option to creat a new route (done manually at the GPS) OR "Import Route(s) from a file".

    If I select the option to import from a file, it looks in all the GPX and displays a list (by name) of all the routes it finds. I then check of the ones I want to load and save and they get imported and will be available until I manually delete them.

    I normaly make my custom routes using Mapsource and when they are sent to the GPS they get saved in a file named "temp.gpx".

    Thanks for answering. Befor I had the 765 and no problems with "Import". I can do it the same way as you.

    But on the 2595 I miss the "Import Function", that's why I don't know where and how to place the predefiend routes .gpx. I manage them in BaseCamp but a "send to device" will not really help.
