Since the holidays will add many new PND users to our ranks, I think we experienced users owe it them to explain the purpose of the plastic disc that comes with the mount.
I used mine to cover a hole in the sill of my house left by removing an old water line. Works great, although the mice aren't too pleased.
I just got back from Hatfield McCoy trails in WV.
I had the chance to use my new Zumo 550.
However, I could not turn loose of my Rino 50HCx, even tho' the radio was not needed. I ended up using BOTH of them at the same time!!!
Is that normal???
Do others have a hard time letting go of the old familiar things? And moving on to the new and confusing one?
The Country Crossing entertainment complex officially opened at 3:00 PM on 1 December 2009. In Alabama, gambling is illegal as well as just about everything else, but it was finally worked out that the slot machines are bingo machines. Anyway, to read all about it, click on www.countrycrossingalabama.com and check it out.

When does the School Zones POI get updated?
This week we are recognizing Raygus1938 for his outstanding contribution to the Chicago area Red Light Camera project. He found a new link that listed all the new cameras and now they are all included in the file.
I really appreciate all the hard work he invested in geocoding all the data for me.
I hope that everyone had a great holiday weekend.
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.

I've been looking for GPS deals today. Target has a Nuvi 255W bundle for $186.99 with free shipping.
Has anyone seen a better deal?
I am attempting to convert a gpx.xlm file to csv file.
The input file type is Garmin Logbook XLM but I don't what output file type to use.
Can anyone help?
Thank you, Clint
I just purchased a new Garmin nuvi 765T to replace my retired nuvi 750.I want to pull the "favorites" off of the 750 and install them on the new 765.I copied the 750's gpx files and transferred them to the 765 but the 765 still shows nothing in the way of my 750's favorites.Did i do something wrong? thanks for your help..
I am just curious if people here still use online mapping websites. I Still do, even though I have GPS. I am also wondering if anybody here has noticed which of them seem to be updates the most frequently. The reason I ask is I wanted to map my brother-in-laws house, which is a couple of years old and on a street built about the time be built his home.
Little known promotional code works one time for each credit card you have registered with Redbox.
I have been shopping for a gps for my bissuness for a short time and just seem to be getting more confused as I go.
I have a Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx with City Navigator NT North America and Trip & Waypoint Manager. I am using a Macbook Pro and downloaded Garmin POI Loader for Mac. I found Rest Areas Combined and clicked on CSV and it downloads to the Downloads file.
Has anyone had any experience with My POI Manager software? The link is below.
Just wondering if it was worth trying out.
* 255w for $120
* 265wt for $150
Is blue tooth worth $30 and does it work good or does it sound like you are talking in a 55 gallon drum or listening to Charlie Brown's Mother?
These are the specials in our area and will be good tomorrow only.
Thank you in advance for your input.
I am real green as far as gps goes. What is the difference between way points and POI's? Should I see them on the display as I drive along the highway?
Saw an interesting article today about the how the price of GPS units will continue to drop, like Tom Tom for $50, and big companies will be in trouble.
Here is the link--
i recently purchased anew nuvi255w. i registered it and upgraded my map. it was a one time free item which also had a shelf life of 53 days. seeing the price of map updating, i think i would rather purchase a new unit rather than pay for this service which is only valid for the unit in question. there is no provision for owing multiple units.
