Welcome / open talk


Can you add more than one gmapsupp.img file to an sd card?

I have tried unsuccessfully 4 or 5 times to add more than one img map file to a Garmin folder in an sd card. If I attempt to add a second one, it asks me if I want to copy and replace or copy and rename the second one with a (2) after it. That's the only options I have. I also tried creating a second folder called Garmin 2 and copying the img file into that folder but no success.

The future is getting better nad better...

Just how long it takes to implement it in other places? And of course it won't be much longer to use it for "security" reasons as well...



Vehicle Routing for Vending business

I am trying to find the best way to run vending routes via gps. Might be wishful thinking to also be to update the records as they are completed on route. the closest online app i have found so far is gomobileiq.com but I can not pay 300 per month for the service.

Help with POI's

Hi there, new to all this.

The POI's for the Arco gas stations do I need all three: ie Arco_CA.csv, Arco_SOCAL.gpx and Arco Fresno Area.csv? I would guess that the Arco_CA.csv would have all the stations from the Cali - OR border, south thru LA and along I-10 toward AZ.

If I needed all three, it there a way to combine then into one file or is there a limit to file sizes?

What will the screen show at 0.00000 latitude

OK. In about 44 days (who's counting?) we'll be on the equator in Ecuador. My 765T has North America loaded in, but not South America. If I take the unit with me to Mittad del Mundo (center of the world) - the actual equator - and I press "Where Am I?" on the Garmin, will it show 0 latitude? Anybody have experience with this?

Garmin 765T...Is it about the destination, or is it about the journey?

Has anyone purchased Windows 7 ultimate?
If so, how is the startup / shutdown times.
Is it better or worse than vista
I am thinking of upgrading to windows 7 from vista..


POI suggestion

I'd like to see POI's categorized by country i.e. US, Canada, Mexico, etc. I think it would be a great thing.

Comments are welcome.

US-24 between Defiance, OH and the 101 in IN to open 29th OCT.

Now this is a new section of a larger rerouting of the old US 24 road.

I am wondering how I will handle driving for almost 30 miles with the Nuvi totally confused repeating over and over "recalculating" do to the fact I will be driving thru what it thinks is empty farm fields.

I also will not have my eta avaiable until I get back to the old US24 in Indiana. confused crying mad rolleyes

Messages (nuvi says it found a better way to go)

I just got back from visiting family in North Dakota. While there we were going to an Indian casino in Harkinson Dakota. We were in Fargo and take rt 29 to get there. I got a few messages from my NUVI 350 that it found a better way to go.

School Bus Traffic Stop Laws

Does anyone know definitively the law regarding the rules on when motorists are required to stop when school buses have their flashing red lights on? I am curious about traffic on the other side of the road going the opposite direction of the school bus.

I think some rules vary from state to state so any information on California would be most helpful.

White Castle USA_V3.csv loads on 670 not 880

Hi All,

I downloaded the “White Castle USA_V3.csv“ file and uploaded it to my Nuvi 670 successfully, however, the same file won’t load on my Nuvi 880.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks for your time.

Just Got Back From Hawaii

and used Garmin on the Big Island and Oahu. It took us without fail to every location we wanted to go to. In my opinion it saved hours and hours of driving around and trying to get to them by using a map. Anyone going to Hawaii should either take one with them or get one with the rental car. Don't leave home for Hawaii without one.....
