Earthquakes change GPS coordinates

Interesting news item:
The powerful earthquake that struck Baja California and the southwestern United States in April actually moved an entire California border city, NASA radar images show.

Calexico, Calif., near the U.S.-Mexico border, moved as much as 2 1/2 feet (80 cm) south and down into the ground due to the magnitude-7.2 earthquake on April 4.

How do I run MapSource?

Reading the posts here I was lead to belive a DVD of MapSource would be mailed to me if I but asked. I asked and this was my reply:
Thank you for contacting Garmin International.

GPS for Bus Drivers

I currently have a NUVI-660, which is a great unit, and I bought a NUVI-765t, which is not so great, it stays lost more then I do. What id like to know from all you GPS pros is what is the best GPS for Charter bus drivers. It has to work well in large cities and hopefully keep me off restricted streets and away from low bridges.

New Nuvi (replaced TomTom)

New Nuvi
To make a long story short - my TomTom just stopped working. My wife thinks it was fried in the heat in the car. Could be. So I replaced it with a Nuvi 255w. Nice unit not as sturdy as the TomTom but nice. First use was to drive to work 41 miles and see if it showed me any new routes.

Twelve GPS units at once!

Don't know if this has already been posted. I hadn't come across this video here, but it is funny.

Maybe not the entire video though. You get the idea after a minute.

Been to Google lately and used the maps?

This is a little off topic, but a lot of us seem to like to have the latest maps and I thought that some of you would enjoy it.

Does anybody has badlands loop (240) lookout POIs

Thanks.

New Garmin 1350

Just bought one. On my Nuvi 350 my SD card has a subdirectory Garmin\poi to put all the poi's I've downloaded here.

On my new Nuvi 1350, what's the directory structure to put poi's on my micro SD card?

I noted that the nuvi 1350 doesn't use the words "Custom POI's." It seems to use the word "Extras." I think that's where the poi's should show up when loaded.

Thanks for your help.

Your opinion on GPS

I want to buy another GPS, one that reliable, free traffic and free map update. Please give me some advices. Thanks

This week we are recognizing Charlesd45.

When January rolls around I am not going to have to do a lot of thinking about one of our Contributor of the year recipients, this guy already has it in the bag and we are not even halfway through the year yet.

You amaze me on a daily basis, we love having such happy helpful people around.
