NAVTEQ has Resolved Your Map Report

I've just received a response from NAVTEQ regarding a map error report I submitted. Unfortunately the report was from February 2008, but it is nice to know I could help. Recently I sent a map error report to Garmin and received a response in two days.

United Kingdom POI specific search

Any chance of a United Kingdom specific area for POI's that relate to that part of the world please?

I notice that unless the country that the POI relates to isn't specifically included in the file description then its hard to search for (obviously).

Any help or suggestions most welcome from this COW wink

To keep God as our first, main and last POI.

Additions and Corrections requirements?

Hi All!

While I have read the FAQ " How Do I Update A File That Is Already On The Site?", when I contact the kind person who has already established a POI file, what information is required?

Is the address enough or are the GPS coordinates also required ?

I'm sorry if this has already been covered. When I use the "additions and corrections" search term, I get 80 pages of hits...

Newbee here.

I just found out about this site. Thanks for creating such cool sharing site.


Cali Runaway Prius

The latest in the saga of Toyota, the California incident, the runaway Prius....a hoax?

Toyota spokesman John Hanson would not comment on what the company would say at the news conference, but said Toyota and investigators for NHTSA were able to pull data off the Prius' control computer.

New use of GPS in social networking game


An example of adapted uses of new technologies - how else could GPS be used? Compare to other kinds of social networking games, eg flash mobs.

"America's Most Miserable Cities"

I was just reading this article in Forbes and it was a real eye opener about how some areas are really suffering far worse then the rest of the Country.

Ohio has 5 of the top 20 most Miserable Cities in the list with Cleveland picked as the most miserable.

Anyone having trouble with Firefox 3.6 and Preview

I always click Preview on my posts first before I click Submit. Just in the last day or two, when I click Preview, it just blanks the editor and starts over. Is anyone else seeing this? It only does with when I'm using Firefox. No problem with IE 8.

Anyone do long distance driving trips?

I'll start off by saying that I love to drive. Many of our vacations over the recent years have been long distance driving trips between 4000 and 8000 miles, normally lasting just over a week. Our trips have "must see" POIs, optional ones depending on time and of course ones we find when we talk to locals.

Garmin Nuvi mini USB jacks

I'd post this in the garmin but will ask here. I have a slightly older model, Garmin Nuvi 250W, the wide model. The USB mini jack is busted. Anyone know if they still sell the part? It used to be on ebay all the time but don't see any there. Me and a friend are going to attempt the replacement. Thanks.

It's a great place to be back.

Road Trip

Wifey and I are headed out at the end of the month (from Houston) on a 7 day road trip with no set plans other than taking her to Carlsbad Caverns. Was wondering what there is to see in the mid to eastern half of NM.

Was somewhat planning on making a loop from Houston -> San Antonio ->Carlsbad NM -> Santa Fe NM ->Amarillo TX ->Abeline ->Houston.

Might entertain going across to Arizona.
