How do I most effectively use custom pois. For example; the Yellowstone poi. It lists 80 points of interest. Once I install this in my Garmin will it let me "spell" under "Where to" and then locate these 80 points of interest or will they just show on my Garmin as I drive up on them?
This week we are recognizing Tremblsi and Rocknicehunter.
Tremblsi, This week you took your camera out and got some really great shots of locations for our POI Files pages. It is really nice to know that I have an inventory of pictures just waiting to have files made for them.
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.
I just bought a Garmin Nuvi880 a week ago and have been playing with it. I started to look for addons/extras for the unit and that's when I found this site.
Just wanted to stop in and say Hi.
With the summers bounty of vegetables upon us, I am going to start this thread to help use them and enjoy them, After all it was your hard work & water that produced them.
If you have any other recipes you like to share please post them here.
This recipe is awesome, and real easy to make and delicious to eat!
1 pie shell
1/2 c. green onions
4 slices provolone
Found my POI's.
Just found this site and am overwhelmed with info...
Was looking for downloadable campgrounds poi's and found this
The Ultimate RV Parks & Campgrounds Directory
It's $49.95, do any of you have experience with it?
Any other recommendations?
Like most, I was having a real hard time enjoying satellite radio (and GPS announcements) from the fm transmitter in my StreetPilot 7200. FM stations were constantly washing out the garmin's transmitter.
I drive hundreds (sometimes over 1000) miles a week and greatly rely on my Garmin.
If one checks a route on Google Earth along the Trans Canada Hwy entering Manitoba from Ontario, it shows two restaurants right at the border. Smitty's Pancake House and a McDonald's.
Don't plan on eating there although there is a friendly Tourist info centre and truck scales at that location.
I have to say,, I have not really looked at some of my older messages from when I 1st started on this site ( around 3/5/07) and read some of my old messages.. I sure learned alot and also helped out many users here.. i see users names at use to be new users like me but now have all the great awards..
Does anyone know of a "Mac" software app. to customize TTS voices?
Thanks for your time.
Hi All: I am leaving on a 4 week driving trip to the mid west and thanks to all of you who helped me set things up. I believe I have all the custom poi's loaded properly and working properly in my new garmin 760. I am anxious to ust it on the long trip. I will let you know how it turns out. Thanks again for all the help I received.
In my travels around the US I have seen a lot of windmills. I checked the list and I don't see a POI file for windmills.
I am now retired as a long haul trucker but am willing to help on such a file.
Is there anyway the Tele Atlas maps can be used in a Garmin. I thought maybe someone may have come up with a work around.
I have begged and pleaded for 3 years to get my Garmin maps updated with my neighborhood streets shown and they still have not even in the latest update.
This week we are recognizing Cpjanda and rmckenly
Cpjanda, I love the files that you are making, they are unique and really interesting. It is nice to have you in our community representing the state of Illinois. You are doing a great job.
I've had my Garmin 660 for about 6 weeks now. Just came across this site. Read tons of posts, etc. Very informative!
Hello everyone. Been lurking for awhile. I finally got my Nuvi 750 the other day and can't put it down.. Thanks for everyones input. I was able to find answers to every question I have had.
I did a quick search, didnt see this anywhere in the forums. I originally got an email telling me about a free google 411 service. I was skeptical. However, i graduated with a few people who work for google.
