Problems Logging In

I am a new user and cannot stay logged in to POI-Factory, and often cannot log in at all from my home PC. When I try to login I don't get an error message. It just shows me the login and password fields again. I can get access from my work PC, but that's not an optimum solution.

I use Win XP, IE7, ZoneLabs Security Suite.

Navigon & POI-Warner

Hello, I'm new to GPS and this forum. As a gift my company recently gave me a Navigon 2000s. So far I'm liking it but am interested in adding more POI files. After a LOT of searching/investigting it seems like my options to upload my own POI files are POI-Warner or nothing. Can anyone else with a Navigon confirm? Are there ANY other options (i.e. open source)?

Thanks, Rick

Submitting corrections for poi files.

When submitting corrections for poi files it is important to note which file you are submitting the correction for. I know that when you go to the file and click on the maintainers name it may appear or you may think that he or she would know which file is being referred to but that isn’t the case.

GTM 10 Traffic Receiver

Do the traffic receivers have to be hooked up through the radio antenna or do they just lay on the dash and receive signals?

Nuvi 880 Favorites question...

Hi Everyone,

When I select "Favorites" on my Nuvi 880, I'm given two choices..."All Favorites" and "Address Book". When I select "Address Book" I get one entry that doesn't even have an address book entry, on my Bluetooth enabled cell phone.

What is the "Address Book" selection in "Favorites" supposed to display?

Thanks for your time.

Christmas in my vehicle!

Today I bought a cell phone car adaptor that is universal to many makes. I can charge many types of cells by just using the proper connector that fits at the end of the car adaptor. This is great. I have my cell phone, nuvi, ipod with fm transmitter, a cooler and my daughter's portable movie player and they all use a different adaptor. My vehicle looks more like a christmas tree.

Traffic Pros and Cons

I have a Garmin Nuvi 350 that I love, however, I don't have the device to receive traffic. I saw there is GTM and MSN traffic. Which works with my unit and can you please tell me how good these traffic units work? I saw another device that displayed the weather. Does the traffic unit also give weather?

GPS Newbie

Just got myself a Garmin Nuvi 760 and trying to learn as much as I can to make it usefull. Already got the Mickey D's POI for the kids smile

Any pointers on the best location/method of mounting in my Chrysler Town and country? I have it on the windshield right now but the wife can't reach it. Anyone have any experience with the vent mounts they sell on EBAY?

Rjrsw, You have been very helpful in the forums and your posts are always pleasant and informational. I really appreciate what you contribute to this community.

Business locations

Does anyone know why it is taking businesses to catch on to the importance of GPS coordinates? If I were to start a business today, it would be one of the first things I would publish on my website. Do they have contracts with the likes of Garmin and Magellan that say they aren't allowed to provide this info on their websites? Or do they just not understand the benefits?

Chit Chat Thread for the week of October 20, 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.

Anyone got one of these? Any thoughts on it. I saw one yesterday, but didn't play with it a lot. I think that the red lights would get on the nerves at night, but again, it would be a reat visual alert if you have the mute on

Is there an FM adapter available in a CD format?

Hi All,

A friend has a Nuvi 680 but he doesn't have a cassette player in his car, he has a CD player.

Hi. I am new to Garmin. I have been using CoPilot and I am surprised by the lack of POI's on my unit. I have a Nuvi 750. Are all the garmin units this way?

Question about gpx files for a nuvi

With alll the recent problems with the v4.10 update to my nuvi 750, i copied my gpx files from the unit to my computer in case i would ever have to reinstall all my "favorites" on a new unit. With that my question would be:For the past 6 months i have been saving all my daily work stops as favorites.
