Zip Code gps file information

I recently bought a new gps and wanted to add some poi csv files. I got those poi files from here but found that many of them had missing information (no city, state or zip code) so I decided to try to update them with the data from some gps-zip code files.

Parking enforcement in Arlington County. Money! Money! Money!

I used to live in Arlington County; the Rosslyn area to be precise. In a word parking is lousy to the max. City fathers and mothers are more interested in development then in the quality of life along the major corridors.

Can you add the large JCV file to the Nuvi 2797?

I tried to add the large JCV file to my 2797 but could not find a JCV folder in the internal card. So I created a JCV folder inside the Garmin folder and put the JCV file there but it didn't work. Any suggestions?

My wave files don't work anymore after switching to windows 8

When I was using my windows xp computer, I had installed wave files ( my gpsr doesn't have an mp3 player) to match some of my poi's and it worked fine. I had installed the sox file in my Garmin folder with poi loader.

Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – April 2014

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

Password length limits?

I joined last week because POI Factory kept showing up in search results. There's a lot of info here, and I appreciate the efforts of all involved.

Following the usual registration process, I waited for the initial email, followed the one-time login link, used 1Password to change my password, and thought everything was OK.

Squirrely Voice

What, if anything was this voice from? It sucks.

That extra 500 miles/stop will cost you $$$ on your insurance (GPS Tracking)?

http://www.infowars.com/auto-insurance-co-tracks-drivers-by-...

Not only will this insurance Co. be able "to locate policyholders by GPS and charge them insurance rates per mile driven... and can even record the route driven by the policyholder."

I can think of a host of associations to this development but I would hate to spoil the fun & indignation for others.

To Start From Scratch

I'd like to start from scratch here and just focus on what I want to do and maybe you experienced peoples can help me get myself set up in a good way.

I want to be able to do the normal highway and city routing.
I want to know where the public lands are including forest service, BLM and state lands (so that I can camp there for free).

Camera changes this week in New York

I am getting sick of seeing New York in the weekly RLC camera updates. This state is over the top. The SAFE Act was a deal breaker. The constant additions of RLC and now speed cameras has me seriously thinking about voting with my feet out of this tax-laden nanny state.

Also a good reason for a Dash Cam.

Garmin Internal Memory Size

I can't find the internal memory size for the Garmin 2797, does anyone know the internal memory size for the 2797? Hopefully it is 8gb.
