I just picked up a Garmin 255W today. I'm new to the whole GPS thing. But so far I'm pretty impressed with this unit and how much tweaking can be done to customize it. I did my map update and have installed some new poi's. Looks like fun!!

everything I have learned in terms of tweaking my 765T to the way I want to use it, as well as getting around a couple of Garmin firmware fiascos, I have learned from the great folks here at poi-factory, and Gary Hayman's terrific site.
you will be very happy you have found both.
And welcome, lotsa of info here.
first thing I did was added new car icon mach 5, then custom poi of walmart and bj with sound and icons, then changed the american samantha to talk more local. thanks for all the aid on this site to do so.
With POI and Photo Navigation you can turn your GPS into your own tour guide when you travel. Also great for avoiding speed and red light cameras and traps.
You will learn alot about GPS on this site. there are a lot of knowledgeable people helping others.
I didn't found about this wonderful site until I was looking for RLC POI. I'm hook ever since

There is alot of good information available here, enjoy
Welcome aboard - you will love it here.
Good to have you! I've been here a short few weeks and love it!
Welcome! This is a great website with insight from some very informed people.
It sounds like you are on the right track already. Learning how to better use it and have it help you will enhance your enjoyment of it.
My best advice to a new GPS user ...
Play with your GPS all the time. Use it to navigate to work and home again, when you go grocery shopping, etc. Play with all the different features of the GPS.
This way, you will learn the ins and outs of the gps quickly.
Then when you are out and about for real, you can quickly navigate to the nearest coffee shop for a coffee, find the nearest gas station when you need it, find out exactly where you are when you are out of town and need to call 911, etc, without fumbling around trying to figure out how to find that gps feature when you need it for real.
Welcome! I became a 255WT owner last month and love the unit.
Welcome to the club!
Welcome to the site!
I just got my first GPS, and it is a lot of fun to try all the different settings. I am learning a lot from reading all the tips and discussions.
Welcome to the POI-Factory. This site has been known to teach old dogs new tricks, but be careful! This site is addictive and has also been known to cause distress between family members. Especially if you have only one computer and two want to keep up on the happenings.
Enjoy. You will find all the answers you need here on this site.
... and I have found this site to have really good information and links.
I am having a great time here! Enjoy.
Let me offer a warm welcome to you as well. We've been known to get cranky and opinionated, but overall we are a great bunch of people to hang with. Oh, the files are good too.
hopefully can learn some of the tricks. I know what you mean about site being addictive, been reading it all day, good thing I don't have anything else to do
Welcome to the site and the GPS world. Make sure you keep your GPS out of sight when you park your car. There are people out there breaking into cars for them.
Thanks for the heads up on that, I don't think I would leave it in anyway, heat buildup inside car can't be good for it as well. It really is a shame we have to lock up everything now, when I was growing up, we never locked anything, even left keys inside.
glad to see all the new members post here,glad you joined us.you will find that this site and the member's are addictive here.
