Nuvi-3760 *** Magellan-5045

In Dash GPS Unit

I would be interested to know how the various GPS units now being offered as factory installed options compare. I can offer the information that the one in the 2007 Mercedes is superior to the one in the 2004 Jaguar. (faster processing and better routing) As I remember, they both ran about $2200 which will buy a Garmin with all the extras.

Downloading Tracks, Waypoints, POI's, etc from your DNX7100

Well, this is actually really easy.

First, you'll need some items to make this work successfully.
1. USB cable with a mini usb connection on one side and a regular connection on the other.
2. Laptop with a USB in and running Mapsource. (or a really long USB cable to connect to your normal computer)
3. If you have XM, you'll probably need a Y USB splitter.

Running Topo Maps on your Kenwood DNX7100 (Garmin)

I hope I put this in the right forum. I like to hit the dirt as often as possible so the street maps don't always work. I discovered this trick for running topo on my Kenwood and thought I'd pass it along. I would imagine that this will work on most Garmin devices but can't give a list on what does and doesn't work.

Jensen NVX line - do not buy

First - I do not want anybody to think I hate them or want to put them down. I am just posting to let everybody know what I was told by their own customer support.
Last X-mass I received a NVX200. Looked nice and even ran nice. The one thing I noticed was the my four year old house was missing. Yep.. I found out that the maps are about 5 years old.

Has anyone figured out how to add custom POIs to the Knight Rider Mio? I found a poi folder with multiple files with .map extentions.

navigon fresh maps

Don't see this posted anywhere. For those with a Navigon, MacMall has a 3 year subscription to the Navigon fresh maps for about $15 plus shipping. I ordered two of them and got them in 3 days. This is normally around $60.

Eclipse GPS

My Boss has an Eclipse AVN6600 in his truck,I was telling him about POI Factory and the custom poi files available for my Nuvi 760.Is there any way to put custom files on his unit? I believe you update unit with a cd.
Thanks for reading.


Anybody know of any of the Navigon line of products that will accept coordinates? I have e-mailed them, and asked specifically about the 2200T, and they replied that it will not allow coordinates input. Also, any comments about this brand will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance....... Joel

I presently use a Garmin 330. In choosing to upgrade what would be some suggestions that would be recommended to look for in other brands and models. Or, from experience, what other brand would be superior to the Garmin.

Motorola Q9h AT&T

I have had the Motorola Q for about 2 months now and with the old Windows mobile 6.0 operating system you had to either subscribe to the AT&T Navigator or apply a couple of hacks to force the GPS to work.

I just updated it to the new Windows Mobile 6.1 and reloaded Google Maps and Microsoft Live. To my surprise the GPS has been unlocked. No need for a couple of hacks to get it to work!
