Miss POI

Thank you

Wow, great site. I am a new truck driver and this website is going to make my life a whole lot easier. I found the site today and have already added a ton of points of interests.

Increasing Accuracy of Street Addresses and POIs

We have a pretty neat opportunity here with POI Factory by being able to create POI files and share them. I am just wondering what the future holds for the POIs on the GPS Devices themselves. What I am referring to is how street address and locations can vary somewhat. For example, a Walgreens near 15034 Shannon Parkway, Rosemount, MN 55068.

Happy St. Valentine's Day

To all the Members of our community, I hope Cupid has shot his arrow and love has found it's way to you.

Garmin Asus Alliance

I wonder if the alliance between Garmin and Asus will result in any other products with Garmin navigation software? It looks like the Asus R2H has a GPS in it. I wonder if Garmin Mobile PC would work with it?



Red Light- You be the judge

The Orange County Register had this video on-line today-- The driver in the white car, following the truck, got a ticket for running a red light. He claims he did not run the light and plans to fight it in court.


Pretty close to really call.

Equatorial suggestions

OK, so in several months my wife and I will be in Ecuador. We'll be heading to Mitad del Mundo, or Center of the World. Now here's the question. What cool things can we do at latitude 0.0 that we can't do anywhere else on earth? I've heard of balancing an egg on a nail at the equator, but does anyone else have any other suggestions that we can do and take pictures of.

Satellites Collide

Here's an article on the recent collision between two satellites. DON'T freak out, they weren't GPS!, but something to think about. There is getting to be quite a bit of junk up there.

Which is Best Garmin or TomTom

I own a nuvi750 a guy I work with has a TomTom720
we are always fighting over which is best and it
always ends with him saying the TomTom does the
recalculations faster then Garmin.I have never
had a problem with recalculating missed turns
it does it within seconds So what do you all think
I need some ammo. I love to agervate this guy so
please help grin

"Life is a journey - enjoy the ride!" Garmin nuvi 255


I was searching the forums. No body here has ever posted any thing about Event_Logger. I have installed in my TomTom One. I have taken the code and modified it a bit. Also removed all its custom menus. It works great. It is fun to come back from long drive and upload the logged way points into maps and re-live the journey online.

Hmm, posted just after midnite & it didn't count as activity

It turned out that I posted to this forum for the week of Feb 2nd and thought it qualified as activity for that week...since the new week Feb 9th had not been activated yet.

Custom POI's already in GPS

I love this site but I was thinking, how do I know if I am not just doubling up on POI that are already in my Nuvi 760, like McDonalds etc?

how to use gps for red light cameras

Hi I am sorry that I have not been on the sight in a while but just wondering if any body can help me with a list of gps that I might be able to use to down load the red light cameras and how I would be able to go about it. Thank You.

Height, Propane and Tunnel Restrictions

The wife and I RV for 4 to 6 months a year. Our rig is 145 inches tall, and 8ft 6in wide and carries about 10 gallons of propane. Having road notifications of limitations would extremely helpful. Is there anything out there short of buying another GPS? We have 4 Garmins now with the latest being a 760.
