I was wondering where I could find gps units that have no poi's on them. It doesn't matter what brand but I do want to be able to add all of the Poi's in certain areas myself.
An example would be adding all the Poi's for a tourist location and no other Poi's for the surrounding areas.
From "News of the Wierd":
Hello Everyone Just wanted to let Everyone Know That the Poi Verifier will not work if you Upgrade your win Vista pc to the Microsoft Update Service Pack 1 I notifed RetiredTech and let him know also because i had Service pack 1 installed and when i went to use the verifier it did not work so i Uninstalled Service pack 1 and it is working fine again
I received the new NA map update 2009 disc today and began the install process by inserting the disc but when I do, it asks for the product key. Well, there is none. There is a s/n but no product key and I have looked high and low on the disc and the jewel case and the packaging and there is none and no papers in the envelope. Anyone know where to find the product key? Am I missing something?
I'm off for two vacation to the islands. I most likely will not have computer access during that time.
Everyone have fun while I'm gone.
I saw this on another site:
PCMicrostore has Kroo GPS nylon and airform carrying cases for Garmin, Magellan, Tomtom and Mio units for $11.48 with free ground shipping.
$22.95 - coupon code Techbargain50%KrooGPS [Exp 5/23] = $11.48 shipped
(Caveat: I've never done business with PCMicrostore, so I can't give you a personal recommendation.)
I'm looking for a waterproof hand held GPS for my son to Kayak with. Any recommendations with good prices? I'd like it to be able to track it's route and be able to upload the info to a computer. Additionally, if it could also provide GPS position to a laptop, that would be great also.
Hey, I am currently deployed to Iraq, and will be coming home in less than a month. I am trying to find the best GPS in the $300-400 range. I've kind of set my eyes on the Garmin Nuvi 760. Is there anyone that could offer some more suggestions? I will be going on a cross country trip to Dallas, TX and Savannah, GA. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Who or what is "Sanborn Tele Atlas"? A recent link sent to me took me to a Google Map of the location and the copyright on the map page is "Map Data @2008 Sanborn Tele Atlas". I thought Google used NavTeq?

One of my local news channels will air a story tonight on their review of several GPS models:
The clip makes it look like Garmn vs. TomTom vs. Sony
new Garmin Plugin Communicator version 2.5.2 download now available... As of May 19th the new update is available.
I have an update to submit to the Virginia Winery POI
The coordinated for the Villa Appalaccia Winery are incorrect.
The corrected coordinates are:
I got my Garmin Nuvi 260 just last week, my first GPS. Luckily I found this site the same day. How cool.
I didn't know what could be added to it until I started reading some of the posts here. Now mine alerts me whenever I get near a White Castle. Does it get any better than that?
I'm sure most of you are aware of all the thefts that have taken place regarding GPS devices. I was in Disney World last week and 4 or 5 cars all around me in the parking lot (Yes the Disney World parking Lot) had windows smashed. Some of the cars had no mount visible but the thieves simply looked for the ring on the windshield.
Be aware and be safe. These thefts are happening everywhere.
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
This week we are recognizing Cursulak and Escrge as our Contributors of the week.
Cursulak was busy making icons for files that seemed to be missing them. It is nice to have those icons for those files now, Thank you.
Escrge, this week you did something really cool. You made a red light camera alert using the different Garmin voices. This is a great addition to the site.
There have been a couple postings where forum members have posted the current gas prices in their localities; this is not what this post is about.
Only you know your personal finances, how much is you income, and the expenses you have.
With the price of gas and diesel going up what will you curtail in your daily life to keep the budget in line?
New to site and life with GPS. My Garmin 750 should arrive today. Wow, Prices have dropped. Got mine for $320
Have a question. I see there are many POIs here to download and people spend a lot of time adding to them. What a great community!
Do not GPS come with some of these POI. Like Rest Areas, National Parks, Walmarts, Coffee shops etc?
Does anyone have a Poi File .CSV for All The Hard Rock Cafes In The US And Canada
