New Dood to Site...


Hello...I am Old Dood and I am a new dood to the GPS world and this site. I am really into gadgets and this little Nuvi 350 is pretty sweet. I am a married guy with two kids and I travel to work about 150 miles a day. I have been waiting for a small pocket sized fairly priced GPS unit for sometime now. This Nuvi 350 is really pretty neat. Personally I would have loved the 660 but just too pricy at this time.

I am not to "up" on how to add POI files and such but I suppose I will learn the old fashion way..."Trial & Error". hehe!

I just read a thread where someone wants to see a National Cop/speed trap POI made. This is a great idea. Yes, the police move around but they do have their favorite little nooks & crannys they like to sit in.

Anyways...good to meet you all.

Welcome dood.... I've had a Nuvi 350 for about a year, so if you need to know anything that you can't find in the users manual, be sure to hollar. This is a great site, and once you get a feel for the POIs, you'll be downloading them like a pro.

This is a wonderful site. Lots of friendly people, willing to help and share their knowledge.

I wasn't familar with POIs either. But with all the information and Help available here, I was able to. There is a good section on POIs you can browse thru.

Good GPSing.
