MSN traffic lag time in rerouting

I just got back from a trip to Tucson today and this was the first time I experienced a lag time in my Nuvi rerouting me due to traffic issues from MSN. There is major highway work going on in Tucson and every exit is closed except the first and last exit. MSN correctly showed the closed exits if you look at the traffic screens, but my 680 didn't reroute me until after I passed the first exit.

Is their an easy way to see if Other people's pois are close to mine? I have created a couple of them, but am unsure of posting them. example: I have a file for campgrounds, and stateparks, but would hate to duplicate someone else's.

Garmin Nüvi 650, 255WT

Watch out in Orlando, FL

They have added 10 cameras in 7 locations. In the past 14 days the have ticketed 1100. That's over 75 a day @ $125 per. Guess they won't have to raise taxes after all. wink

Good Way to Bypass Chicago?

We went On I80 to get to Missouri from Michigan. The first time wasn't bad, but on the way home with heaving rain we ran into a bad jam. About 15 inches of water was under a bypass. I was very nervous driving though it.

Contributors of the Week 2008-09-08

This week we are recognizing dkeane and Trenholm.

dkeane, You have been working on making files for sports radio networks. I will be packaging these sometime this week so that they are easy to find.

Trenholm, You have been working on collecting all the Ham Repeaters for Canada. It is nice to have that collection, thank you so much for filling that empty spot in our Ham radio project area.

Chit Chat Thread for the week of September 15, 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.

Sprint GPS service provider?

I just replaced my old cell phone with a Samsung Instinct from Sprint. Basically it's an iPhone knockoff, but with a few more features that I like. It comes with navigation capability. So here's my question. Does anyone know who Sprint's GPS provider is? The splash screen has TeleNav in very small letters on it. I know TeleAtlas, and I know Navteq. But I've never heard of TeleNav.

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

Storing JPEGs on Nuvi 680

Any idea how much memory jpeg's eat up on this unit? Also, even though the download from my computer is in the correct order, the unit seems to ignore that in slide show mode. Any suggestions?

GA Hotspots and POI

Does any one have ideas of great ways to use our GPS to explore the state of Georgia or have some great places that they like and want to share.

Incredible price

Hope this is works out.... But I just purchased a NUVI 5000 5.2" GPS for $159 + shipping!!! If anyone is interested here is a link.



Bad info on Petro truck stop in Gadsden, AL

The settings for the Petro in Gadsden, AL are wrong. Trust me I got to know the State Hiway Patrolman that lives in the apartments at the end of the DEAD END road that it leads you to. Lets just say he's NOT very nice at all. But like he said "it's a good thing that this is not his juradiction and he was off duty" now the local officer of Gadsden that showed up he was real cool.

Garmin 660

I bought a Garmin 660 and a Garmin Beanbag friction mount thru Amazon .com. The Beanbag came without a mount for the GPS. Any suggestions how to order one as I have not found a listing for one. Mfish


Proximity Alerts

When I set up a proximity alert, lets say 3,000 ft for a Walmart. How close does the Walmart have to be to the road I am driving on before my Garmin alerts me at the 3,000 ft point? Do I have to be 3,000 from Walmart or does Walmart have to be a certain distance from my path to alert me at 3,000 ft? If it is a specific distance from the route I am taking how far is it? Thanks
