New Purchase

Just bought a Garmin 1350 at Costco for $129.99 (free shipping). That's a heck of a lot cheaper than what I paid $350 + shipping for my 3 year old Nuvi 350.

Hope this one works out as well, but if it doesn't, I very much like Costco's return policy.

Anything I need to on the look for???

Windmill Question.

Yea. After 46 weeks I got a windmill! Now, the question.

To maintain active status one must "post". Does this mean creating a new "post" or simply responding to one that already exists?


Driving while programming.

From the WSOCTV website in SC. I wonder why they listed his home address:

[BELMONT, N.C. -- Our newspaper partner, The Gaston Gazette, is reporting that state troopers stopped a distracted driver who blazed through Belmont at 102 mph while a 4-year-old girl slept in the backseat of his sport utility vehicle early Saturday.

Highways in New Mexico

Battery Charge Level for Long Term Storage??

At some point in the near future I'll be upgrading my Nuvi 260 for a Nuvi 1450. The plan is to put the 260 into storage as a backup in case I lose or damage the new unit. I know that the battery will last longest with a charge of about 40% and I usually keep the 260 in the fridge when I won't be using it for a week or more to help preserve battery life.

Just saying hello

Hi All,

I'm new to the POI files, but they look very cool and I'm sure once I get the hang of these it should be very helpful.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 360 and I am currently trying to get all my locations I have added over the years downloaded to my Mac. No help from Garmin on this one yet.

I'm mostly looking for and want to create off road way points for exploring in a Jeep.

Do not videotaped a police officer in the line of duty.

Watch out: do not videotaped a police officer in the line of duty.

Police officer's estimate good enough for speeding ticket

Holy cow!!

I think I'd prefer photo radar!!!
