MMMMMM... Donuts!

Taking a break from POI building and I thought I'd relate this story.

I had started working for a company involved in real estate last spring and on occasion I was late for appointments because I got lost in the neighborhood due to similar street names.

Nuvi 2595LMT, Nuvi 1490T, Nuvi 260, GPSMAP 195

Once you load the poi choice, how can you tell exactly where it is on your device?

Can you see it listed under the same subject or do you have to decipher where it is in the massive poi's massive list on your device. I have the Garmin Nuvi 260. Thank you?

Hey everyone. I just recently got a new cell phone the AT&T Tile with built in GPS. I have Garmin Mobile XT and the software on my PC to make the maps and other things. I look forward to reading and learning as I am new to GPS devices. So far things are working great but I am sure I will receive help from this site smile.

Voice Recognition

On my recent trip I used my Nuvi to help me find restaurants and lodging. I either had to stop or hit food and lodging while I was driving. Wouldn't it be great it they operated with voice recognition in addition to touch screen? I guess that is the future model that hasn't come out yet!!

I tripped going up the escalator and I fell for an hour and a half!

Can I use the same POI files and red light cameras file for both Garmin and Magellen GPS?

I am using the Garmin GPS now and my friend just bought a Magellen GPS. I am usually load the POI and Red light cameras files to my Garmin GPS and I just wonder that can I use those files (without any modify)and load to my friend Magellen GPS?

Any advices would appreciates.

Just saying hello....

Hi Folks. Just a quick Howdy from a GPS Noob. I just got a Garmin Streetpilot C340 today (my first GPS) and I'm just getting the hang of it.
It looks like there's a lot of good info on the site, and some friendly folks, so I'll probably spend some time lurking about and soaking in as much as I can.

As luck will have it, I will be on the Blue Ridge Pkway and Skyline drive next week. How do I load the Blue Ridge and Skyline GPX file into my 750?

Contributors of the Week 2008-10-06

This week we are recognizing GeoCamp, AJ500 and Jefferbob.

GeoCamp, You have been filling up the transportation category with Toll files and transit rail station files.
It is so nice to have these files in our collection.

Chit Chat Thread for the week of October 13, 2008

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.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Miss POI

What's wrong with my 750?

Loaded up some POIs, just like my old 650, with MP3 files and all, but my 750 isn't using the MP3 file. It just gives a double tone and shows a banner. What's with this? How do I get it to use the MP3 files. And, yes, all files are named EXACTLY the same, except for the file type.

880 and microSD card problem...

Hi All,

I bought two 8gb microSD cards for my new Nuvi 880. My problem is that one microSD card loads properly and one card won't.

The card that won't mount tries to load (the sand timer keeps turning upside down) and at some point, the screen reverts to the Garmin logo and that's where it stays until I turn the unit off.

Just read that they will have a new TEXTING while driving law in California. Don't get me wrong, I'm in favor of it, but how can Law Enforcement tell if you are texting dialing a number?


I just signed up for the POI Factory. This sure seems like a good idea.

I use my Garmin 60CX for Geocaching, Jeeping, hiking and on my motorcycle trips. I keep track of my waypoints with Mapsource and ExpertGPS.
