new & interesting places for your GPS

Navigate to ... here

 

Hi all,

I had a nice experience with my nuvi 350 last night. I didn't even know it could do this, but I was looking for a specific place, but there was no way to define name or any kind of marking, though I knew the vicinity where it is. So I zoomed out in the map screen, found the region, zoomed back in and touched the screen approximately where I wanted to go. The darn device plotted a route and tt was interesting to navigate this way -- not knowing where exactly is it, but getting close to it by just "marking the X" on the screen.

So far my experience was spread only to points, which have a specific definition -- like a street number, intersection, location of some kind, attraction, hotel, restaurant, POI, etc.

This was a pleasant surprise, because the place I was looking for was very close to the coordinates where I touched the screen.
