This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Have GPS voices become the new 'other woman' in American relationships?

I was trying to retrieve a previous post of mine so I went to "recent post" under my account and then selected the tab "My recent posts". The result is a list of topics I have looked at and maybe participated some times ago but they are sorted by the most recent update by anybody so it makes it difficult to locate my own posts.
this is a simple way to down grade your firmware version. in the event you have trouble with the new version, i conducted the experiment on nuvi>255>1490T several times whit no issue's.( 1 create a folder on your computer) name the folder what ever you want ( 2 connect your nuvi to your PC ) ( 3 go to your garmin folder look for a file call XML COPY AND PASTE ONLY,to your new folder.
"Googling" for a comparison between Navteq and Teleatlas map accuracy and completeness seems not to yield much in the way of any recent professional reviews. I am finding mostly blog/forum posts from 2007 and before.

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.
Here is an editorial article that appeared in the Seattle Times today.
Stumbled on this website that has links to various GPS related software:
free GPS maps:
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.
Five of the closed rest stops in Arizona will reopen by the end of July.

Ehrenberg (I-10), Canoa Ranch (I-19), Meteor Crater (I-40), Sacaton (I-10) and San Simon (I-10)
it was down last week for 3 days
This week we are recognizing Mike L.
Mike L. has been with us for 3 years and 11 weeks now and continues to provide important files for NJ and NY. Over the last few weeks I have been working with him on his Golf course project and it is a delight to have him active in the community.
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.
How many gigs is the latest North American map (not including Mexico) update?
Happy father's day to all.
May you enjoy all the toys that you may receive today.
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.
