I own both devices and for now I will stick with my GPSr for navigation.

POI Newbie; Want to Gain Active Status

Brand new here and looking to enhance our new Garmin Nuvi 760 with some POI's other than the standard fare. Upgraded from Nuvi 360 by necessity, not by choice. Had car vandalized while on vacation last week and the "old" one was stolen.

Very much interested in the red light camera POI since I travel for business.

Garmin's discontinued Nüvi's and other models...

Hi all Nüvi owners,

I discovered, much to my dismay, that Garmin is discontinuing the following Nüvi models, as well as other units.

The discontinued Nüvi models are:
The Nüvi 350, 360, 370, 600, 610, 650, 660 and the 670.

Here's the link for all of the Garmin discontinued models:

Trans Canada Hwy map outdated for New Brunswick

So on a trip through New Brunswick last week I found the new Trans Canada sections weren't represented very well for most of the trip from Quebec to Fredricton. I think my maps are only a year old and I thought most of those highway changes were at least a couple years old. Any New Brunswick locals have this problem? If so, do the 2008 maps address the problem?
Thanks,
Rob

"Delete nothing, back up everything"

Miss Poi, where is "Outside the Forum?"

In the node about stars coming out, you mentioned old faithful members helping with model spec pages or something like that.

Where would that be?

GPS *r*

OK, I tried...I looked in the FAQs, did a search, no luck...so here's my post.

I have downloaded, uploaded, set alerts, renamed POI files all successfully........

Stupid question 101.....what the hell does 'r' stand for when y'all talk about 'GPSr'???

I found many types of GPS mounts...reasonablly priced

I found a company online that carried many types of TT as well as other brands of GPS mounts and accessories that (I think) are reasonablly priced. Check out SEMSONS.COM in California. I ordered TT mount parts that I will use to make my own 'custom' mount for my vehicle for less than $4.00 and was only charged First Class postage to ship! Just wanted to share.

'Recent Posts' Question

I was wondering if anyone could tell me whether there is a way to view the last post/discussion I have written in. I know you can go to your recent posts, but this only shows what you have posted a comment on and when it was last updated. However, the posts are listed in the order by which they are updated; whether that be by me or someone else.

adult club file is not correct, many different addresses, all the same coords

was browsing the poi files and came across this one

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/14034

adult clubs in the us, opened the file to find 20 to 30 different addresses all have the same coords. i emailed the maintainer to look into it but it appears that the coords go by state. so the file is no good.

just fyi

Chit Chat Thread for the week of August 04, 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.

Canadian Content

Hi,I am new here! Am from Canada been surfing this site and am not finding much Canadian content.Am interested in Red Light and speed camera info up here.I did download the redlight files from her,They work fine thou.

Snipe a GPSr from Ebay at the lowest price!

Here is a program I found that will snipe an auction on Ebay at the very last second a auction is set to expire.

This program runs on-line so you don't even need to load any software, and they give you three free snipes, plenty to win a New or Used GPSr at at a fantastic price.

for those interested:
