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

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
PS If not Lets Try Get One started
For those of you who are creative at making Sound Alert MP3 files, how about these?
Time Zone Change
Sonic Drive In
TA Truck Stops
How many do you have and what make?
I have 4, all Garmin. It's not that I use them all anymore, but when I've upgraded I have kept the older model.
Hey I just had an anniversary, I've been a member for one year and one day. How much I have learned from you guys! Thanks
i use my Nuvi760 daily while going to & from work ,
since i have the MSN traffic cable.
the highways around Atlanta are changing constantly and in order for me to get a timely alert to get over for the next exit this is what i did (hwy 316 east has a new exit ramp from I85 north)
Hello All - I am trying to change my Pic by edit my profile and can't seem to get it to change - any suggestions - Thanks and have a great day
Hot off the wire...
someone told me that sometimes GPS can give you the wrong direction. how could a system that is globally navigated by satelite give you the wrong directions?
