New Adobe Acrobat Reader 2011, Upgrade Available Now FAKE DO NOT RUN!!!

I just got an email to which I almost ran a spam/phishing link.

http://www.adobe.com/support/reader/ says: Adobe Reader 2011 is an Acrobat/Reader email spam/phishing scam. Do not click the links in the email.

I don't know if this is a new one, or I just got it, but be careful if you see this fake, destructive email.

Hello from California

I just registered for this site and am posting an introduction. Most forums require new users to say hi.

I just brought my Garmin 265w in to do its yearly software update. I found out about adding POI's and thought they might prove useful so here I am.

problem with "Sizzler" POI

I DL the Sizzler poi from here in GPX format for use on my Nuvi 855.
It has Sizzlers in a few different states. I use POI Loader 2.54
The problem I'm having is that only the Sizzlers in CA show up on my Nuvi.
I used extra poi editor to convert the GPX to CSV and looked at it in Excel and all of the other states are there.
I've tried both formats on my 855 with the same results.

Samsung Galaxy Tab

Does any one know if poi files can be loaded into a Samsung Galaxy Tab that uses Google maps?

Garmin Warranty Service

I had my unit for about 5 weeks when i had to send it back because of a software problem. I called garmin, total time on the phone was at the most 15 minutes, got a rma number and sent it back. The longest wait was for the post office to send it. Looks like garmin recieved my GPS and sent me a new one the next day. Total time was 10 days.

CSV vs GPX files

Newbie question: What is difference between CSV and GPX files? When would I choose one over the other?

posting pictures

Is there a way i can post a picture (small file) in a thread i've started in Garmin talk, so that i can make myself clear? Not certain how else to describe my exact problem.

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?
