Maximum Number of Satellites?

I'm just looking at the number of satellites my 1490T is using (11) and on the graph it appears that it has the potential to receive and use one more.

I'm just wondering what is the maximum number of satellites in the constellation that could be above the horizon at one time for any given place?

General Motors onboard navigation system

We just purchased a 2011 Buick LaCrosse and love the car. While we've been looking for this vehicle for a while, we were surprised to see that no dealer ever had one that did not include the navigation system. So the one we purchased has that system as well.

Germans won't take directions from a female GPS

I was listening to a NPR Science Friday podcast today and the segment discussed GPS voices.


(NPR) FLATOW: ... I found interesting in your book, you start out in the front of your book talking about that German carmakers would not put a female voice into the GPS.

Fantastic Website. Thank you!

Do You Use Your GPS To Find POIs When You Are Not In Your Vehicle?

For the most part, I have used POIs on my vehicle GPS while driving. Now that I have some GPS phones (Pharos GPS Phone 600/Garmin Nuvifone G60/T-Mobile Garminfone) I begun to start thinking about GPS files while on foot. Since I live in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul Minnesota Twin Cities Metropolitan Area, I have thought about some attractions near me.

Texting and GPS use

The City of Cincinnati voted last night to ban texting while driving. They also voted to ban the imputting of any type of information into a GPS while the vehicle is moving. This new law will take effect on Oct. 10, 2010.

Noob saying 'HI!'...

Got my first GPS this week, ordered the wrong one, now I have another one on order.
I Drive for a living, ordered the Garmin 765T, found out it doesn't have the trucking information I need,
So I have a 465WT on order.
(Garmin guy told me the 'T' was for 'Trucker',
Turned out it's for 'Traffic' FM alerts!
