Other GPS brands



I recently bought a 2008 Tribeca with DVD navigation system. Am not so happy with the maps and POIs because am used to Nuvi 370 easy to navigate. The navigation works with a DVD disk. Do you know if DVD disks from other NAV system work with the system. If anyone knows if they are compatible please let me know.

Ford Factory System

I am thinking about getting a Ford Explorer with in-dash system. Does anyone know make or model? I believe they use NAVTEQ. I have Garmin Nuvi 660 and look the custom POI option. I would hate to have a system that does not allow me to add points of interest.

Cool DeLorme Trick

Just figured I would add a not so well known trick for DeLorme users.

Navtour GPS - and presumably other Navigon software based units.

I bought *really cheap* a Navtour GPS. It's based on Navigon software.
It's barely worth the $50 I paid for it at the computer swapmeet.

However, I have discovered a few things.

Has anyone bought a Delphi GPS? If so please post a review.

I noticed the Delphi GPS is at Sears for $139 today.

Has anyone bought one of those?
If so please post a review.

How is the support for POI loading?
How well does the routing work?
Are the POIs you expect there, and how old is the database?

LG LN735 Software

After reading a few good reviews about the LG LN735 GPS I bought a used one. The only problem is it did not come with the original factory software. I was wondering if anyone had a copy I could buy. I'm afraid if I start to mess with the POI's I might mess something up and have no way to reinstall the mapping software.
