Welcome / open talk



Just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself. My name is Greg, and I currently have only one GPS (A Kenwood KNA-G510, uses a Garmin system), however I just bought my wife a Garmin nuvi 1250T for her birthday (please don't tell her). I live in Maryland and will be happy to help out with locations around here.

Thought I'd say Hi! to y'all

I've just joined the forum and thought I'd say hello to everyone.

While I'm not a GPS noob, I've just purchased a Garmin 775T, and am very impressed with it so far. There are some amazing features my 3 year old GPS didn't have. I love good tools, and great 'toys'!

Quest2 GPS hangup

Just wanted to ask if anyone has had a problem with a particular GPS unit (Garmen Quest2). I have had this unit for about 3 years and since starting to load poi's etc. It seems to hang up or go dead for periods of time can't even shut it off, so have to physicaly disconnect it and let the battery go down. Then I can re insert it on the bike and it seems to work ok.


Help new guy (where POI files show on the GPS)

Hello all

I'm new at this! Just downloaded and installed POI "Military Campgrounds" via the Garmin POI loader and I can not find any of the POIs I downloaded on the GPS. Is there something else I need to do?

Future Direction Of GPS: Single Function or Multiple Function

If you had influence over the future direction of GPS, automobile or others, would you prefer single function, meaning actual navigating and routing only, or do you prefer multiple function, MP3 player, XM/Sirius satellite, camera, TV, telephone, wifi internet browser, etc?

Site work... Converting some files

I wanted to let you guys know that I am shifting some files around today.

I am moving files from one database type to another.

The affected files will show up as new on the list. If these are your files, please do not be alarmed.

We are getting ready to convert to Drupal 6 later this fall.

Mac GPS Pro

I purchased Mac GPS Pro back at the beginning of the year to work with maps on my Garmin Oregon. I purchased the maps from Mac GPS Pro as well so that I would have what I think I needed. One of the neat things you can do with GPS Pro is upload your own raster maps and calibrate them with GPS Pro.

OK.....so where the heck am I?

Garmin Nuvi With Slacker Radio Application

I have a Garmin StreetPilot 2730 and a Garmin Nuvi 500 right now. The 2730 is capable of XM satellite radio. I also use Slacker Radio service http://www.slacker.com/ I was thinking that if Garmin and Slacker Radio were to partner up that this could be a good alliance. Many GPS devices already have MP3 players, so I don't think adding Slacker Radio would be that big of a leap.

Automobile GPS Habits

I am just curious if more people here:

-Run there GPS in the vehicle most of the time when driving, or

-Leave it off or even store it out of sight until you need it?

Happy triple 9

That's 9/9/09

Have a very lucky day!
