View Full Version : Google Maps Send to GPS not working

06-30-2012, 08:19 AM
When I use "send to GPS" from Google Maps, I'm getting a "An HTTP 404 Error has occurred.The page you requested does not exist." error when Garmin Commincator starts up. This used to work fine. Now it doesn't. Any ideas on how to fix?

It's not working for me either with my new Nuvi 3790LMT. I tried the latest version of Communicator Plugin 4.03 and it did not work. I get the same http error message.

I read in one of the other forums that if you revert back to an older version of the Communicator, the feature would work. I installed version 4.01 but now it's forcing me to update and would not work unless it do that.

I tried doing this on both a PC and a Mac. Both the system give the same http error message. This leads me to believe it's a Communicator software issue.

I update my maps and then updated the plugin just the normal standard update I do when I'm planning a trip. Now NOW!!!! I can't sent the map to my Garmin using google map. I think map quest has the same issue.

The error is "An HTTP 404 Error has occurred.The page you requested does not exist"

Hello all,
I have just written to support regarding this issue which is exactly what is described here by you all.
I only hope some tecchie at Garmin reads this thread.
If they do not reply I will have to write to Google as well!:mad:

My hardware:
nüvi 1340 lifetime maps
iMac 20in OS X 10.7.4
Safari 5.1.7
Garmin Communicator PlugIn 4.0.3

When using Google maps send to GARMIN GPS function the my.garmin.com website returns the following error message:

"An HTTP 404 Error has occurred.The page you requested does not exist."

THIS IS VERY ANNOYING :(since it worked perfectly with
Garmin Communicator PlugIn 4.0.1 and 2
On your forum there are many people writing about this: my question is what can I do about it with or without your help.
Normally software is improved not made worse!!
Please please reply to this email since I do many road trips and cannot use my Garmin nuvi 1340 anymore

I did a search on Google Groups and can see that other users are having the same issue, not just with Garmin. Somebody said they already wrote to support at Garmin. Support said to ask Google. :rolleyes:

I see you just did too.

If the point of interest has been saved and you have clicked on "my maps" so that your points of interest are at the left side of the screen I don't get the option of sending to GPS. If no points of interest are loaded (haven't click on "my maps" then I search and find a point of interest, I then get the option of sending to GPS

What is the status of this? After forced update of Garmin Communicator, now I can't send maps from Mapquest or Google to Garmin any more. It shows sent, but when you check the device they aren't there. This is very frustrating!! A feature that I used more than anything!

Hi Garmin Engineering, I just updated this evening (8/14/12) and now I can't save any addresses to Favorites in my Garmin Nuvi 750.

You should find a .gpx file in the Garmin/GPX folder at the end of transfer. Are you seeing this file getting created?

I have a nuvi 255W and after upgrading to Communicator on my Mac, I was unable to get my points to transfer to the GPS from Google Maps in either Safari or Firefox. The GPX files were showing up on my device but not in my favorites. After much trial and error, I decided to delete all the 152 GPX files in the GPX folder on my GPS (after first backing them up to my computer in case). After doing that, Current.gpx recreated itself and I was again able to send locations from Google Map to my nuvi and they started showing up in the favorites again. Don't know if this will solve your problem but it worked for me. Note: The old locations still remained in my favorites even though the gpx files that created them were deleted.

That's because when you send gpx files to your nuvi they are merged with what's in favorites and then current.gpx is rewritten. Once that's done you can delete the original gpx files and the locations they contained will remain in favorites. You can only ever delete favorites from your nuvi on the device itself.

This feature does not work if the POI in Gmaps is in Malaysia :(

This feature does not work if the POI in Gmaps is in Malaysia :(

I would imagine that this limitation is imposed on Google by the map data provider. It seems like the link to report-a-problem is also missing when viewing Malaysian maps. I ended up sending a request to Google in a roundabout way. Please contact Google to request this feature.
