Thinking of upgrading to a 2595 from my 760. Would I be able to copy my favorites from the 760 to the 2595?

In addition to sussamb's good advice, in case there are any glitches going from one generation of nuvi to another (as has happened at times in the past), you can import all of your Favorites into a program such as MapSource or BaseCamp from your 760, then export them to the 2595. This lets you look at any which lose comments or otherwise misbehave, and fix them.

I don't think that thread will work on a new 2595 right out of the box. These new devices are no longer treated as USB disks by default, they are MTP devices. There is a way to change this by going into the developer menu though. I don't have one of these, so I might be missing something here however.

Mapsource will not be able to export waypoints/favorites to a 2595 either for the same reason.

But Basecamp does know how to "talk" to MTP devices. So if you don't want to mess with settings in the developer menu, Basecamp is probably the only way to send your favorites to the 2595.

Boyd,

Once again, thanks for looking over my shoulder [g]. As a Mac guy I have rare (and reluctant) contact with MapSource, so didn't realize that distinction.

One way to make the newer nuvis visible within Windows:

1. Start NUVI by itself and go to Volume Screen.
2. Press the upper right hand corner of screen for 10 seconds.
3. The Developers Screen will pop up
4. Scroll down to MTP SETTINGS
5. Change from AUTO DETECT to MASS STORAGE
6. Shut down NUVI and hookup to Computer USB cable
7. Start NUVI and it should recognize it is hooked up to the computer.

^^^ Interesting.



Can you leave it like that (Mass Storage mode) during regular use in the car?

Will MapSource (and BaseCamp) "see" it in the mass storage mode?

Mapsource interacts with the Nuvi on a file-oriented basis. In other words, when it receives data from the Nuvi it reads the file named Current.gpx; when it sends data to the Nuvi it places it into a file named Temp.gpx. So Mapsource can't work unless it can access the Nuvi in mass storage mode.

Basecamp is newer software and it can use either mass storage or MTP mode to exchange data. However, there's some evidence that there are bugs in the way Basecamp handles MTP devices... see: https://forums.garmin.com/showthread.php?t=25635

@Carbuff - yes, you can leave the unit in Mass Storage mode indefinitely. The "Diagnostics page" mentioned can also be accessed (in addition to the way "sussamb" mentioned above) by pressing (from the moving map page) the Speed field which takes you to the Trip Computer page, after which you press/hold the cardinal direction letter within the speedo dial for ~7 seconds. The settings in the MTP Settings page are:

MTP Auto Detect (the default setting)
Mass Storage
Mass Storage Single Session (which I assume puts the unit into Mass Storage mode until the unit is power-cycled)

The above info is from the 3490. Other units may be different
