Do you have a backup of the favorites saved somewhere to recover them from?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No I do not.
Expert:  Pete replied 2 months ago.

Ok, then unfortunately there is no way to retrieve them if you do not have a backup to recover from.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Okay. So what information did Garmin ask to use? Wouldnt it be my addresses? I also had to register the device. There is a file on the account that shows content. Can that be the lost info?
