This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI
My computer crashed,had to get a new one.How can I reload my poi files from the SD card to my new computer. Is it possible??
I signed up awhile back and downloaded the camera POI but really couldn't contribute because I simply don't run across them.
However, I got the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and I think will be able to add to the list in several places
When my garmin 265wt comes up with an ad for walgreens - is that pre loaded or does that come up via the radio? Can my radio signal back to garmin my location?
This year is very special, I have my Dad in town and get to celebrate with him.
I also got to convert him to a quality GPS, he was buying brands that we don't support. I think it would be cool to have him become a POI Factory addict now.
A pal sent me this. He claims it is a genuine ad for an Israeli GPS unit.
Warning: there is one use of the "F" word in the ad.
Just a question, to see if anyone is interested. I travel by car to Florida, from NJ quite often. I am also a bit nostalgic about the original Howard Johnson's Restaurant chain (my kitchen is done with an old HoJo's booth, tableware, ads, and color scheme, thank god I have a cool wife), and created a file for myself with the locations of the "ghosts" of the restaurants along the I95 corridor.
I am looking for either Garmin map coverage for Latin America (guatemala) or another brand that would have it for a missionary friend. I've had a hard time finding much. There's some third party maps for Garmin (who knows if they're any good) I see a map you can purchase from Garmin for Mexico, which would help as he travels through there.
GPS is Chapter 2 page 76, This some very interesting reading.
In looking into traffic signaling I ran across this traffic engineering concept. It focuses on the ultilization of space for all means of traffic.
Hello, I have a streetpilot and I have a corrupt basemap on my CityNav. 2009 v.9 maps. Could someone email me a copy of ther gmapbmap.img file. Please.
My wife and I are thinking about getting some cheap mountain bikes for casual weekend road riding. Since they will only be used sparingly we'd like to keep the cost under $250 each.
If this has been brought up before--sorry I couldn't find it.

After reading the census post I got to thinking about long term coordinate drift. I did a little looking around the net and found this bit of good information.
If you are one who just likes to know.
I route-up 20-30 residential addresses each day for the Chicagoland area. I find Yahoo’s geocode brings me literally right to the doorstep most of the time.
Anyone know where they get their data from?
I read that in the 2010 United States Census being taken, that every Address will be Geocoded.
U.S. Census Bureau
Drivers/riders around the world must learn an extraordinary skill like this guy on youtube... NOT!
I find that video both amusing and stupid but I've got to admit he's good.

I accidently deleted my maps from my gps unit. This occurred while downloading the maps, the USB cable was knocked off and the unit now read No detailed maps found etc... yes I did have a back up for the maps, but it was on my had drive which was lost through a system upgrade. I just don't know why the computer will not recognize the unit.
