New Motonav devices

Although not big in the GPS industry by a long shot, cell phone maker Motorola has had a few devices on sale before at places like Radio Shack (sorry ... The Shack!) and Staples. They announced a new device at CES and while the people over at GPS Review were not doing cartwheels about it, it looks like the Motonav may be worth investigating once it's out. The link to the story is below.

pioneer AVIC-S2

Hi

I upgraded the maps for the Pioneer AVIC-S2 however most of the old POI on the original SD card are not on the new SD Card

Can the old POIs be transferred or combined to the new SD Card

POI for the Sony NV-U94T

Anyone know how to import POI's to the Sony NV-U94T? I searched and didn't see anything for the 94T. I wish it was easy like Garmin. Thanks

IGO8 POI

Hi, I have a problem loading the POI's. I would like to load the tim Horton POI's, but they are only available in a CSV file and I need them in a .poi file. I tried some POI converters but the only thing closest that I can convert them to is to a .upoi file which does not work for me. I presently have a Pioneer AVIC F700BT fully modded. I did a lot of searches but came up empty.

Factory, After Market In-Dash GPS versus Personal GPS

We currently have a Garmin Nuvi 650. We are planning to buy a new car. That would give us the option of having an installed (Factory) GPS or even other after-market in-dash GPS. We have no experience with a factory or other after market in-dash GPS.

Do the in-dash units offer any added benefits/functionality over "personal" GPS units, such as the Nuvi 650? Any preference?

Pioneer's in-dash GPS Nav units

Is it just me, or does Pioneer's GPS mapping STINK??? I've had two different models installed in vehicles over the years, and I seem to find problem after problem with the continuity of roads, the routing logic, and just the overall quality of the product.

Delorme Street Atlas 2010

Has anyone bought version 2010 and compared it with 2008? What are the differences? Specifically, I'm wondering if it has corrected the faults in 2008.

Mac POI with Kenwood DNX7140

Greetings, I recently purchased a Kenwood DNX7140. I have been trying to load POIs to the 7140 via an iMac but am unable to do so. The POI DVD works perfectly with my DNX5140 but will not load onto the 7140. I Keep getting a "Disc Error" message. Is there a different procedure for the 7140 vice the 5140?

Coordinates

Which GPS models allow direct entry of coordinates. I know that some Garmin models allow this but no one really states the ability or inability to do so in their promotions.
More and more people are posting coordinates.
I have an old Magellan which will accept coordinates from an SD disk.

Google Maps for mobile devices

Anyone here using it? They have updated the Blackberry version to 3.2. It has layer support. I was playing around with it and saw where you can create custom maps (My Maps) and have them as private or public. It is almost like having POI files for Google Maps. Here is one that someone created for Diners, Drives-Ins, and Dives (show on FoodNetwork).

Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010

Other versions of S&T had a Location Sensor in the Tools Menu that gave you the coordinates of the location the cursor was sitting on. I can't find the Location Sensor in S&T 2010. Are there any users here that know where they put it?

Navman S70 in USA

I've just purchased the USA maps for my Navman S70 and was wondering if anybody else has used a Navman in the USA and if so how good they are. I usually hire a car from Hertz with their "NeverLost" Magellan satnav as well but I have found them hard to use and the map display not very useful, particularly at junctions.

download to S&T 2009

I have tried to 'download rest area combined' to S&T but it will not open indicating there is a problem. I noticed that the file extension on my computer shows it with a .csv. extension .. would that second period be causing my problem?
I am new to this site and POI's in general and would like to offer thanks to all those who have taken the time to put together this wealth of information.

Gps taking me off route

I went on a road trip with my KNA-G510. Which has worked great! However this weekend it was sending me the wrong way to my destinations? Sent me over ramps from the freeway just to have make a u-turn using the ramp to go in the direction I had just came from.

iGO8 POI proximity alert

Does iGO8 has POI proximitgy alert like TomTom has ? If it has then how do I enable/disable for individual POI categories ?

Thanks

Problem with POI-Warner

I tried the POI Warner on my Navigon 2200t and the result is devastating. There is a POI Warner folder in the root of my flash drive with files and folders named with incomprehensible characters. The folder size is 35.9 Gb! There is no way to delete the folder and its contents, as I always receive "system file" error each time. Does anyone now how I can delete this folder and its contents?

Mio Movv 300 Voices and Languages gone

Hi there,

I installed MioMore Desktop 2008.
when I do the VOICE TRANSFER for my preferred language, it asks me the DVD that came with it. Looks like I lost my dvd. I checked on MIO Site to download & burn it again, they don,t have it.

Any idea to fix this problem to get back the voices?

On my MIO moov 300,

Main Menu > Preferences >Language >

No Voices available
