Our Camper/RV, dezl, dezlCam, Garmin Drive, Garmin DriveAssist, Garmin DriveLuxe, Garmin DriveSmart, LIVE, nuvi, nuviCam, and zumo devices allow you the ability to back up and/or restore the locations saved in the favorites, saved menu and routes.1 In order to restore the data, a backup must exist.

To back up the favorites, saved addresses, or routes from the device:

  1. Connect the device
  2. Open Garmin Express
    • Add the device if prompted or select it from the Garmin Express Home screen (house icon in the top-left corner of the window)
  3. Click Tools
  4. Click Back up Now

If restoring a backup, click Restore Backup and select the previous backup from the drop down menu, then click Restore. This will restore the information in the backup file to the device.

1Routes will only be backed up from devices that support multiple stop routing.
