$45 GPS

Heads up. Woot is offering a Motorola GPS for $45. Probably a discontinued item but the price is hard to beat.

For those not familiar with Woot, the company offers one item for sale each day (unless there's a special Woot-Off going on) and it's only available until sold out.

The Act Of Remembrance

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.

And may we ever pray

" Lord God of Hosts,
Be with us yet,
Lest we forget,
Lest we forget."

p s Thank a Vet or better yet buy them a coffee, sit down and listen to their story.

All the worlds indeed a stage and we are merely players. Rush

Highway Speed Limits

I recently went to Myrtle Beach and we ran into several, unusually slow speed limits, when it did not seem warranted. We figured it was done to generate money for the local police.

Does anyone know of a website that would should the speeds of any particular stretch of highway? My NUVI 350 does not show this info.



This should raise the collective POI Factory blood pressure. It's called ASSET (Advanced Safety and driver Support for Essential road Transit.) A trailer equipped with multiple cameras, radar etc. that could bust a motorist for five or more infractions at a time. Details here:

I have a Garmin 1450 and I was wondering if instead of changing the recalculating to something cute etc,can it be changed to just recalculate the course with out saying anything like the Magellan GPS do.

POI Factory Members

Just curious. I wonder how many POI Factory members there are!

Does cold weather hurt a GPS ?????

I have a question for the GPS community. I've got a Garmin 255W and I've recently been told that I shouldn't leave the GPS in the car (even in a case inside the console) because the screen can freeze and break.

I haven't heard this before and I would like to leave the GPS in the car so it is always available, but I don't want any problems either.

Map Update (should be cheaper)

Map updates should be cheaper.

Better traffic coming?

Hey all. Just looking at replacing a new GPS that has failed me too many times the past month. Anyhow, I came across this site in my searches. Didn't even know you could customize and add POI files. Good stuff!

Sever's Corn Maze and Fall Festival

I just thought I would post that I took my family to Sever's Corn Maze this fall. It was my first time, so it was kind of interesting to get a map and follow my sons around locating points inside the maze. I brought my Garminfone with and it was interesting to look at the track on the map. It sort of reminded me of geocaching!

Freeing up space

In the past I have removed voices, vehicles,and help files. Am looking at the text files but not sure which one is the English. Also looking at the keyboard files same question. Any other suggestions to free up space??
