Is there a website that will send the results of a phone directory lookup to my GPS.
I can look up a business in Google maps and send the name, address, phone and GPS location to my Nuvi saved as a "Favorite".
I would like to be able to do something similar for residential searches. e.g. "White Pages"
I have a Garmin Nuvi 5000, and a TomTom GO 720. I like the estimated arrival time on these GPS, but the TomTom is very inaccurate, and totally worthless. If I take a normal 2 hour trip the TomTom starts out estimating it at about 4 hours.
I'm using win. xp and can't see the file extensions. I know I have to do something on the control panel but I can't remember what. (Senior Moment)Can anybody help?
Not to be out-done by Walmart...
All the Chilean miners got out after 70 days. All healthy (as can be expected) as well.
Blessings to them, and their families!
Just read an article that says, starting this Friday WalMart will be selling Ipads. Just wanted you folks to know this earth shattering news !!!!!
This week we are recognizing Donaldb530.
This guy is managing some of the biggest projects in the community and is doing a great job.
It is nice to have someone so dedicated working on the Walmart project, it is always changing and you keep it updated nicely.
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.

Is Warrant-less GPS Tracking Legal?
The courts are divided on the legality of GPS tracking and the issue seems destined for the Supreme Court.
Can someone who has driven the Skyline Hwy in Northern Virginia give me a heads up on this road, seems on Google map like it pretty winding rd. with plenty elevation, how easy is to navigate on a car say from Swannanoa to Front Royal?
20 more minutes to the long weekend. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canuks.
Pioneer is developing a head-up display for cars that links in with the navigation function available on many modern smartphones. A prototype of the device is on show this week at Japan's Ceatec electronics show, and the company said it hopes to have a commercial model available in 2012.
Here is the link to an interesting article that seems to indicate starting next year people will be able to display GPS info in the car from their cell phone using "terminal mode"
As I was reading the posts http://www.poi-factory.com/node/5107?page=3 about incorrect POIs, etc., I was sort of reminiscing about another hobby of mine and comparing and contrasting. I am a licensed amateur radio operator as well as scanner radio listener.
I'm traveling to South Carolina, soon and have heard of the infamous Summerville Speed Trap, along Hwy 19.
Does anyone have the coordinates that show where it changes from 65 MPH to 50 MPH.
I plan to stay alert and my wife will be watching as well, but one can never be too careful with a place like this.
I'm finding more and more companies providing store location POI files on their Websites. Maybe we could provide a link option in the POI File section, rather than posting a static file?
For example, ScotiaBank has a file of locations, ExxonMobil does too - might be better for us to post the links so it is always current?
This week we are recognizing Dobs108.
This kind gentleman is always so helpful in the forums and also behind the scenes in his area of NY. I really appreciate his attention to detail and helping to make sure that things are correct in the red light camera file.
I love reading his posts, they are always so interesting and insightful.
I have found a company in Calif. who sells the adapter to unlock the GPS units in Toyota SIenna and LExus so that the user can search poi, input addresses while driving. ALso this adapter will allow user to use the radion/music section without restriction (like searching for multiple folders, songs on ipod ect).
