My wife seems to have taken over my Garmin Nuvi 500. She does not want the usual windshield or beanbag mount. I am a little leery or vent mounts. I saw a universal visor mount that might be suitable. I am just wondering what experience people here have had with vent, visor, or other alternative mounts. There actually is a small storage space on her dash of the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan.
I wonder if it is true in all states?
In Maryland, when you approach a fixed speed camera, you have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to get a ticket.
There are large signs advising that you are approaching a speed camera and the cameras themselves are huge, on both sides of the road, mounted on tall aluminum poles, usually in multiples of three.
Arizona is closing 13 of their 18 rest stops temporarily to save money.

It is getting crazy. You can't park anywhere anymore. Dickey sold the streets and now when i go pretty much anywhere I have to swipe my fn debit card into the pay to park boxes.
Everywhere else is getting jacked up too. Permit parking, no parking from whatever time to whenever, snow removal, street cleaning..........Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.
I need to make a ridiculous parking poi.
Does anyone know if there are any of those whacky "windshield obstruction" laws in Hawaii? Clearly I want to use my nuvi there, but don't want any issues with the law!
Not spam (I hope,) just a heads up for a great GPS deal (for those who like Tom Tom)

I'm fortunate that my Kia Rondo has a great spot by the clock to mount the suction cup, but very few vehicles are so fortunate.
Has anyone tried using the 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips that you use to hang pictures etc.?
I stumbled onto a youtube video that displayed a custom GPS mounting system called VSM G3:
The web page to order these type of mounts is:
The mounts they have listed are based on make and model of the car.
I was wondering if anyone has tried installing one of these type of mounts.
Do you ever drop the threads of old discussion/forum topics? Is there anyway for me to delete items from my personal discussion list?
Has aynone created a generic poi icon to be used with some poi files such as places to see file. Just wondering would be cool to have contest for submissions to poi factory
From time to time I know we have all been there, stuck behind you guessed it Grand Ma & Grand Pa. I know, I know I'll be there some day but for right now I would like to get to my destination at a reasonable time before I go completely gray or wreck, has anyone done a POI file on "Passing Lanes"? in Arizona?
Hey - I know the Contributor of the Year (COY) is chosen by Miss POI and Jon, but if we could perhaps influence the selection by naming a person we as users feel is deserving, it may have some influence. Now that we are approaching the end of 2009, if you could vote for someone, who do you feel is the most deserving?
This week we are recognizing SteveJonesMO and Hwyman.
SteveJonesMO, you posted this project: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25174. I am so excited about this file, it looks like a great batch of locations.
Hwyman, You worked on the Ford Dealerships project this week, thank you so much.
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.

hi, am newbie
have used gps for a while fishing and crabbing
is there a way to turn the waypoints i have recorded on my nuvi into poi files to share with others?
i was driving through an intersection where a red-light camera is being used ( and my gps warned me ahead of time) i drove thrugh with the green light, but it changed to amber as i was 1/2 way thru the intersection & noticed it to turn red when i had gotten to the other end of this large intersection, i did not see any camera flash go off (it was daylight).
So my buddy works for a Mapping company we all know!!!
Last night we had dinner together and we were talking about my GPS and how nice it has been but that you can't be 100% trust worthy of it.
Well he was telling me some funny stories i will share here form time to time.
Caller: The address i'm looking for is not on my GPS - can you please add it?
This really isn't for Garmin devices only but that is the one I have.
Does anyone know if there is software available/website to use to track where my GPS is? Let's say my device gets stolen. The person that took it is currently using it. I am looking for software or a website that I can use to find where the device currently is.
