Pictures from the Past

These pictures are fascinating. They are of an America that we don't really know....real Americana of a bygone era. They are 70+ years old and so beautifully photographed. This is a real treasure.

76 Gas Station POI File

Does anyone know where I can find a 76 gas station CSV or GPX file? I can find the icon but no database file.

Obsolete Data in a POI file

I have only been a member for 2 weeks and have noticed some obsolete data in a couple of POI files (rest areas and McDonalds). What do I do with this information? Inform who with what?

If I were a General Maintainer could I correct the information myself and how would I do that?

Touchscreen won't work

Hi Everyone! 1st time here. Having an issue. I have the Garmin Nuvi 605. I've never had a problem with it, until now. It seems as though the touchscreen has just stopped. I can see the screen. Audio works. It just won't respond to my touch. Any ideas?

Built-In GPS Units

Since so many new cars have the option of having a GPS unit built-in I wonder if we should have a discussion about the pros and cons of these units?

2000 PND Owners In Jordan

I was in Jordan last week on business and read an article in the local paper that said they now estimate there are 2000 people who own a PND.

The article went on to give the typical PND versus cell phone navigation pro/con debate.

Makes you realize how blessed we are as a country and makes me realize how blessed I am personally (I have two PNDs plus my cell phone!).

help with old laptop

I was given a laptop with Microsoft Millennium. It does not have the M/S Office Picture Manager. Is there a freeware program that works very similar? I want to download the software to a thumbdrive & then install it on the laptop.

Cannot get Blueridge Parkway and Skyline Drive.gpx to work on Garmin 3790LMT

Cannot get Blueridge Parkway and Skyline Drive.gpx.htl to work on Garmin 3790LMT. I load it into my POIs with loader but nothing is there.

I tried opening the file (I am a Mac user) to look at it but it looks very different than my regular .cvs files.

What am I doing wrong??

We are planning on doing this trip in April and this would have been a godsend for us but??

Please help! crying
