Google Map And Home Address???

I know this has been posted in the past, but it is strange that Google Maps, actually Yahoo maps also, has moved my house up the road. It was OK for the last several days,,,any idea for what's happening? It ain't the GPS's fault.

downloading from Google maps

I am having a problem downloading from Google Maps to my Garmin Nuvi 760. Google deoesn't seem to recognize my 760 and only wants me to send the map as an email. I don't think the problem is my USB cable because it works with everything else. Has anybody else had a problem like this? idea confused: confused:

Can I upload bmp files?

How do I upload a .bmp to this website?

Do Not Plug Your iPhone into iTunes

The upgrade to 2.0 is mandatory and Apples activation servers have been brought to their knees. Apple says it could be all day. They had to know they had at least 4 million existing phones to upgrade along with the rollout of the 3G phone and should have been better prepared, maybe a staggered rollout either allowed the old phones to update a few days before or after the 3G intro.

Google Earth

Just a curious question. Is there anywhere a person can go to attempt to get your town to show up better in satellite view? I can see better detail in a lot of smaller areas around us (Dubuque, IA) than I can here. I realize this is probably complicated but I'd sure like to request better resolution if there was a place to request it.

Trip to Oregon/Idaho/Utah (POIs?)

I'm just packing for my 10 day road trip through Northern Utah, Idaho (East to West), and Oregon (East to West along the North, then to SouthCentral, then East back to Idaho through to Northern Utah again).

This will be my FIRST GPS Road trip ever!

Would you buy an SUV?

I came across an MSN.com article from about a month ago. For some people, buying an SUV makes sense.

I see there is a Supercenter Walmart file and Walmart supercenter and Sam's Club file as well. Has there been any talk of merging the two files to label the Supercenters within the file?

Garmin Nuvi 760 and MSN

Garmin 760 msn direct traffic not working in Vancouver,receiver coverage signal is very strong and traffic delays not showing. I stucked in heavy traffic several times.

A minor complaint

(Didn't there used to be a forum for Comments to the Operators....or something similar ??)

I have noticed lately that, after posting a reply in a multi-page thread, the program takes you back to the FIRST message of the thread (first page).

HOW TO: What is the Best Way to Permenently Install a GPS in Your Car?

Since I live in California it is illegal to affix the GPS to the window. I heard that it is possible to have your GPS permanently installed so that none of the wires (ie power cords, audio jax) are visible. Does someone know how that is done? or know of a website that explains how to do this?

Contributors of the week 2008-06-30

This week we are recognizing Motorcycle Mama & Mahoney

MM, I find it entertaining that people are always trying to beat your response time. You have consistently been one of the top 5 contributors in our community. I don't know what this community would be like without you. You are amazing and we all love you!!!

Chit Chat Thread for the week of July 07th 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.

My 760 is still new

I'm curious about downloading the state parks. Shouldn't they already be in my Garmin?

POI Location "Location"

I have perused the forums and searched, yet have been unable to locate this topic - although I'm sure it's already been answered here somewhere...

Let's say that a store opens in a new location, in a newly built up section of land. The streets don't exist yet on the maps. Before I start submitting all of the new stores on the parcel of land, where is the proper location to mark the POI?

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .

capacity of Nuvi 760

Does anyone have a rough idea of how much space we have to add additional POI's to the 760 ?
