This link is a little off topic, but it does involve some travel. I can't help but smile when I watch this video. Again and again... It would be cool to see the the track on his GPS, if he's got one.
check out his web site too. What a cool gig.
Used Rt 414S towards Watkins Glenn last week my alert went off with the low clearance ahead. There is no bridge at that location. I tried to find the co ordinates in the file but did not. It went off right at the Watkins Glen KOA
There is some info out for the upcoming (late fall) release of S&T at
there is input from some of the MS S&T team about new features and bug fixes.
I don't know about other manufacturers, but Garmin only has a Home and a Favorite button. I certainly don't consider work my Favorite destination.
My Wife and I call our Nuvi "Hildie".What do you call yours? (no curses please!) I know this question has been asked before but we have quite a few new users now.
If you are interested in POI accuracy and have a good technical or Geography background you might want to fool around with this free program. It allows you to download data directly from many cities and counties which is based on Cadastral surveys and would tend to be more accurate. It also allows importing of USGS and Census data ie TIGER Data. Create layers of coverage etc.
Does anyone have experience making their own maps? I am interested in learning some things about this.
I've read many posts that suggest that GPSr should have a Radar Detector. That has had me thinking. Always a dangerous activity.
Why do folks have a GPS?
Is the primary purpose to violate traffic laws without getting caught? If so can a police officer seize my GPSr as a criminal tool?

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 Jrozsnaki and DRMCMTR.
Jrozsnaki, Your new POI File project is Hot!!! You have done a fabulous job making a fun and interesting hunt for spice for the rest of us. I am looking forward to seeing what other exciting projects you have in store for us after this one is complete.
I love my Garmin but before the Garmin, i had the TomTom 930 and loved the Advance Lane Guidance feature.
I presently own a Garmin 850. I did not need the bluetooth feature and I decide to get this one. The only downside is that it is expensive....
We have now surpassed 100,000 members, at the poi-factory.
Let's all give a standing ovation and a round of applause to Miss POI and Jon, for all of their untiring efforts in making this site, the best that it can be.
Congratulations in reaching this milestone...
So, I sold my 350 to get the 650. Unfortunately, I never copied my vehicles from the 350 to my computer and thought I could get the "silver/grey roundabout" or "silver/grey euro" from Garmin's garage, but they now only have the blue available. Does anyone know where I can get the silver/grey one? Thanks!
Can anyone tell me if Garmin addressed the "skipping .mp3" issue with their latest (v4.50) update?
I'm using .wav files for my sounds and would like to know if those using .mp3 files are still experiencing the .mp3 skipping, when alerts trigger, on their units.
Thanks for your time.
Nice story in todays local paper.
Who uses TTS (text to speech). I've had my 350 for 1 1/2 years and didn't even know it existed. Then my friend got a 260W and I heard his and I was loving it so I finally checked my 350 and it was there! Now I use it on my 650.
