Gas prices

 

Is there a way to download gas prices on my nuvi 360 without having MSN direct?

Sorry...

I don't believe so... besides even if you could manually download them to your device, unless you did this daily, the data would be pretty useless.

$3.21 Per Gallon, and I can't believe I'm happy paying it!

Nope, but I did pay 3.21 per gal for a fill up today in Cleveland.

Yes, useless

The daily fluctuations in price does not allow that. There are websites that track gas prices and tracking those may be a useful alternative.

How I do it on my 260

One of the best websites, as mentioned above is http://www.gasbuddy.com/

It will sort the prices from low to high for the area you choose.

When I need to fill up locally, or when I am traveling cross-country, I'll search for the lowest priced stations where I am going to be. Once I zero in on one or a few stations in the area, I map them out and then choose the one which has the best price & location.

I then copy and paste the address into Google Maps and send the resulting position to my GPSr. Even though they use Google Maps, they don't yet allow one to send the location to a GPSr.

When I'm out and ready to get gas, I just select it from my favorites and press "Go". If on a long cross country and this is a gas stop on the way, I select it as my next destination.

Not as instantly gratifying as MSN & maybe a little less timely, but it only takes a minute or two to do it manually this way.
