new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk


Some cheap GPSr's at Costco with lifetime maps

Too many to list, but my favorite is the TomTom XXL 550 TM with lifetime traffic and maps for $170 AIR.

There's also a nuvi 255 with lifetime maps for $120 which puts it about $35 more than Amazon (which doesn't throw in lifetime maps . . .).

How 'Bout Them Rangers!?!

For the first time in forever, the Texas Rangers are in the Pennant Race and one game from the World Series to boot!

Of course that one game is a pretty big stumbling block when the other team is the NY Yankees, but maybe we can pull it off.

Go Rangers!

What happened to map loaded to GPS

I have a Garmin 1450 and I just loaded a map from mapquest to my 1450 and it said I was successful but I can't find the location I loaded to my Garmin. I have gone to tools etc and can't find it.Thank you

Why ? (curious humor)

Why drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Why people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke.

Why banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.

White Pages to GPS ???

Is there a website that will send the results of a phone directory lookup to my GPS.
I can look up a business in Google maps and send the name, address, phone and GPS location to my Nuvi saved as a "Favorite".

I would like to be able to do something similar for residential searches. e.g. "White Pages"


Estimated Arrival time Garmin Vs TomTom

I have a Garmin Nuvi 5000, and a TomTom GO 720. I like the estimated arrival time on these GPS, but the TomTom is very inaccurate, and totally worthless. If I take a normal 2 hour trip the TomTom starts out estimating it at about 4 hours.

Hidden Extensions


I'm using win. xp and can't see the file extensions. I know I have to do something on the control panel but I can't remember what. (Senior Moment)Can anybody help?
