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.
This week we are recognizing Speed2.
Speed2 has been posting like crazy this week. Usually we see one or two posts a week and this week there were 39 very helpful bits of wisdom.
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.
MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI
Would like to know if Garmin's Traffic Trends functions like Tom Tom's IQ Traffic as far as picking the quickest route for varoius times of the day? Does Tom Tom gather more user info to make it accurate?
I loaded poi files on 3760t using poi loader and now can't find them. Thought they would be under extras but there is nothing there. I have done this before on older nuvis and this is a bit different. Help Please
Hi everyone im new to this and have a couple of questions. I see there are lots of sounds you can download as poi warnings. Can anyone tell me how do i save these from this site and get them onto my 3790T. I have also noticed that when i save a favorite they allways show on my map ie home or locations i have been to before is it possible to have all poi's show all the time? Thanks
I want to give my Nuvi 1450 gps to my sister how do I change my info on the Garmin site to her info,so Garmin will recognize her instead of me.I want to purchase the Nulink 1695 any one read any good reviews of it all I can find is what Garmin is saying about it.Thank you,mdh31951
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.
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.
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!
Reminder: This Saturday is 9/11.
For all those who perished on 9/11/01. We will never
forget. God Bless you all.
I’m using a Garmin 255w GPS and having trouble in changing a phrase . Here’s what I have done. See if you can follow.
I took a drive to the end of the Earth (Madawaska, Maine) or at least the Northernmost town East of the Mississippi...darned if I didn't fall right off the end of the Earth...well, okay, I would have in 1492 when conventional wisdom was that the Earth was flat
My nieces were visiting for the weekend and they wanted to see a certain movie but I wasn't sure if it was appropriate for them. So while googling the movie I found this nifty site http://www.commonsensemedia.org/
They review movies, music, games, etc. and tell you whether they are suitable for kids of different ages.
You should definitely check it out if you have kids.
I don't believe in ghosts, but the kids in the back seat like to look for them as we cruse by.
I have posted a free Internet tool to find the GPS locations of reported fatal accidents near any location that you enter.
Check http://www.cactusmitch.info to see a few of the GPS enter-able summary reports of fatalities in the Federal reporting system. U.S. location only!
Hello! I just signed up a bit ago, saved a Florida Campground POI, and now am having difficulty trying to figure out how to get it to my Garmin nuvi 255W. Do I have to save it in a particular location?
Any help would be terrific, and thanks.
I contributed a POI list of Springhill Suites by Marriott and I haven't seen it posted yet and I was wondering if something might be wrong with it or if I might have submitted it in the wrong format.
This week we are recognizing Dwaynes and Jpandcindy.
This dynamic duo took over the Chick-fil-A project and have showed great teamwork.
I love it when groups form to make an already great project greater.
Thanks so much for your help updating this project.
Has anybody here used the 'Lorex Road Warrior'?
In addition to having real-time video, it also has a built-in GPS to track vehicle movement/position.
Any user input would be appreciated.
