Alert Sounds

When I go to the alert sounds library and find an alert sound that I want to add to my POI file - How do I make a file of that sound? I know it has to be .mp3 and have the exact file name as my .csv but how do I make that sound into an mp3 file to begin with??

Thanks for your help in advance!

petrocan fuel stations

i have seen a official petrocan fuel station poi from petrocan. i thought i would post this here. not sure how this site could acquire that, but just putting it out there

Which one

I am looking for another GPS. I currently have a street pilot C340 and I really like it. I want one with a large display to keep in our motorhome. I am leaning towards a street pilot 7200 but would like input (good or bad) on that model or any others you would like to recommend.

Thanks!

Garmin GPX Converter "installs" itself.

I tried to open a program that is not Garmin GPX Converter and I get the screen showing that it is installing. When I click cancel my original program beings to run fine. What seems to be corrupt?

POI Error Correcting (Love's Travel Stops)

cool I have noticed there are errors on the Love's Travel Stops POI. I am willing to make the necessary changes to the file. I am not so sure which is the best method to make the changes. I have downloaded the Excel file and I am very familiar with Excel. My question is which is the easiest and fast way to reference all of the coordinates within the file?

Street Pilot C 530

Can anyone tell me how to delete all the info in my favorite folder on the unit .I loaded a file on camping sites and I did not put it at the right place ,There is 771 names plus my own addresses

Thanks

No 3rd party GPS on iPhone 3G?

Even though TomTom demonstrated a nav application on the new iPhone (which has a built-in GPS chip), it looks like Apple may forbid it. The software development kit now excludes applications that do navigation. Perhaps Apple hopes to sell its own GPS software for the iPhone?

Triumph Dealer POI

Cape's Performance Center In Niles Ohio has been sold and is no longer a Triumph dealer. Maybe the keeper of POIs could remove them. If some other dealer in the area surfaces I will send a note.

Chit Chat Thread for the week of June 9th 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.

I'm Back

Hey all!

I'm back from my vacation. The weather was great and we had a great time.

Having my GPS unit with me on the trip was great even though I've been there before.

I'm slowly trying to get back into the normal swing of things, but the time zone changes are tough.

Hope everyone is well.
