new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk


Lorex Road Warrior

Has anybody here used the 'Lorex Road Warrior'?

In addition to having real-time video, it also has a built-in GPS to track vehicle movement/position.

Any user input would be appreciated.

Corps of Engineers Camping Areas

Could someone tell me where I can locate the POI file for the Corps of Engineers Camping Areas?

Thanks very much,

Garmin nivi 855 screen recalibration

I just got my new Garmin nuvi 855 delivered from Amazon. Upon powering up immediately saw a dead pixel. While it did not bother me much I wanted to recalibrate the display.

Couldn't find it under Settings->Display or Settings->System. Can anyone help me find it.

Thanks in advance

Hertz Neverlost

Every so often I rent a car from Hertz and end up getting a Neverlost GPS in it. They are Magellan-based GPS systems from, what appears to be, 10 or so years ago. They pale in comparison to anything on the market today.

Alerts on Garmin Nuvi 3790 not working

Do I have to download the icon and alert files separately or are they included in the POI packages? I am new to this and when I try to enable the alerts on my GPS, it doesn't allow it. I am wondering if I am missing something. Anyone have ideas/help?

Handheld radar guns equipped with video cameras.

Probably somewhat unique to Texas but kind of interesting non the less.

I am going to Arizona!!

OK, so you say "Big deal, it's not me" LoL I will be there for almost a week, Sept 8 to the 14th. So I am looking for some help to find some good Poi's there. The car I rented will have unlimited miles, so I can drive where the interest Poi's are. SO can someone point the way? What should we see, besides the Grand Canyon? We will be staying in Phoenix. I appreciate the help.

How well do you know landmarks.

Sixteen satellite views are posted with multiple choice answers. It is a fun test. I missed two. I'm sure several people will get them all right.

This week we are recognizing Mahoney for his continued excellence in everything he does here on the site.

I am not sure where we would be without you my friend. You are a super star.

Site Improvement Suggestion

A lot of the questions on POI-Factory revolve around 'when will the Numaps 2010.xx be released', or 'is firmware to fix my 7X5' released yet', etc, etc... I thought it might be a big help to have a centralized page here, looking something like this:

Garmin Numaps Current Version = 2011.20
Release Date = 10-Aug-2010

Garmin Nuvi 7X5 Current Version = 4.0

Garmin weather???

Maybe one day a weather feature will be available to know wether you are traveling into rain, snow,or sunshine!

How much information does your GPS store about where you have been?

Let's say your GPS gets into the "wrong hands" - some person(s) with ulterior motives to reconstruct where you have been after the fact.

9th court of appeals rules it's okay for government to implant GPS on your car to track you without court order

Mapquest change

I just used mapquest and they have changed it all around, when you do to the send box it gives you several tabs but the one for the car in only for onstar and sync, i guess garmin and tomtom got left out in the cold,
