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)

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.
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.
MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI
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.
what happens went you switch from a new firmware to and older firmware does you GPS goes hair wire
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.
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
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.
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.
