I just discovered that I can load geocaches to my streetpilot via a GSAK file that is treated like a poi fle. Works great using the car Gpsr instead of the handheld while driving from cache to cache.
Here is an awesome site, I tested it, and it's accurate!
If you encounter a map issue(s) on Navteq based Navigation Systems such as Garmin,(i.e. GPS tells you turn right but actual street is one way you cannot make a right) you can report it here.
This will make improvement to the map provider like NAVTEQ in future map releases I believe.

It seems one of the latest GPS satellites is having signal distortion problems that can affect the accuracy of GPS units.
I wonder if that's why my house keeps drifting - oh wait, the mooring lines slipped.
This week we are recognizing two of our Super Star Members.
A_User and Charlesd45, you both go above and beyond each week in an effort to make this a great place for GPS enthusiasts. We really appreciate both of you and are so proud to have you as part of our extended family.
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.

I’ve crreated a poi .csv file “Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria” (see below), however, I can’t get it to load on either my Nuvi 670 or my Nuvi 880.
Please look at it and tell me if you see any error(s), I need to correct. Although you can’t see it, there are line breaks on every line in this .csv file.
I’m also using the latest version of the PoiLoader for Macintosh.
Sorry to say ive been away from the site for a little while what with school and all of the fun stuff associated with that. I'm going on a cross country trip leaving sometime later this week. I am just wondering if there are any must have pois that have recentlty appeared that you would reccomend for this trip? any reccomendations are appreciated. Thanks
I downloaded the camping POI (Campgrounds and RV Parks Combined)after using the poi loader Pop up said that I added x number of pois. When I do a search on my Garmin 760 in POI folder for campgrounds/camping/rv none come up. What am I doing wrong?
OK, not a GPS subject, but given how much bandwidth is used to discuss red light and speed cameras, I figure this is fair game for discussion:
Having been unfairly tagged by a laser equipped police officer, I decided to fight the ticket and after waiting almost 2 years for the case to come to court, I won on a technicality.
I don't have access to Windows or a Mac but would like to create POI files for my Nuvi 750. Has anyone here tried this?
Some of you may be interested the following Web site. There are numerous downloads and GPS related items of interest.
I hope this helps some of you and/or entertains you.

When I logon to "Unread Posts" I am seeing duplicated message topics that have duplicate topic, user, & times, everything except for the forum names. Happens in IE7 and Firefox 3.5.3 so I believe it must be a forum software bug.

Here is what I need from you guys....
Advice on equipment and software and also guidance on production tips.
So if you are experienced with making screen casts and tutorials please help me out.
I really like the idea of using Camtasia Studio 6 but I have not made the investment yet.
