I have a bluetooth gps but haev no idea if there is a good gps software on the mac? Anyone have any recomendation?
Although you're not specific as to what kind of software for the Mac, you're looking for, I can suggest two...
1. Project Bobcat software version 126.96.36.199 Beta, by Garmin
2. POI Organizer by Merchon Cottrell, a member of poi-factory.com
HTH (hope that helps)
I need to buy a gps to start programing it for poi's. I want it to have a feature that talks at those locations and a jpeg. I will be buying a lot of these since it will be a tour guide in a small tourist town. I don't want the most expensive but it has to do the job. Please help me decide the best model to get.
Time is a factor since I will have a rather steep learning curve as that I don't even own own one at the moment.
Please give me some feedback.
All the best,
Thornwell (my middle name)
I'd suggest you go to the Garmin site and compare their line of Nuvi's.
It's hard to determine just by the list of units which one would best match my criteria for a tour guide application. I need to have a pretty lengthy (maybe a minute) mp3 message at the poi's and I would need to determine the poi's on the spot as they aren't available anywhere. I see a C550 at Costco for $200.00 which would probably work but I need to buy a bunch of these and that's a one time deal.
Do I just need the model that plays mp3's or can you even make alert mp3's?
I don't understand what you mean when you say...
"I would need to determine the poi's on the spot as they aren't available anywhere".
Can you clarify exactly what you mean?
P.S. Whatever Nuvi model you choose, the unit "must be capable" of playing .mp3 files.
I will need to physically go to the locations that I want to have as poi's and save them. They are not the normal tourist spots.
I'm sure this is very elementary but as I said I'm just beginning this journey into the world of the gps.
Which type of tour are you going to do? Or is it going to be a mix?
Do you want the unit to to say just "turn left" or do you want it to say "Turn left on Elm St."
Probably both. It's a small town and people wander all around on foot, bikes and golf carts. There aren't a whole lot of things to see (the town is 1 square mile) but I want it to pop up when they get close to something interesting. Not necessarily a whole planned trip but that could work too. Could there be the option of a planned trip but if they want to do their own thing, will those poi's still pop up when they get close?
The "turn left on whatever street" is a good thing but not absolutely necessary.
