Garmin Express can transfer Favorites, Saved Locations, Routes, and Trips1 from one compatible device to another. A backup for the original device must be available in Garmin Express before a transfer can take place. To create a backup, refer to: How do I backup and/or restore my saved addresses, favorites, or routes on my nuvi, zumo, dezl, RV, or LIVE series device? Once a backup is complete, the information can be transferred to another compatible device.

To transfer information to another device:

  1. Connect new or replacement device, wait until Garmin Express detects it
  2. Save the device to Express if necessary
  3. Select the new or replacement device from the device drop-down list
  4. Click Device in the Menu bar
  5. Click Transfer Saved Places
  6. Select the original or desired device in the From: drop-down list
  7. Select the date of a previous backup version in the other drop-down list
  8. Click the Transfer button

This copies all the information contained in the backup from the original or desired device to the new or replacement device. Allow the transfer to complete, then properly disconnect the device from the computer. To confirm the information was transferred, check the Favorites/Saved, and or the Routes/Trip Planner menu on the device. If some information is missing, the new or replacement device may not support it.

1Routes and Trips will only display on devices that support multiple stop routing
