Chit Chat Thread for the week of July 21st 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 week we are recognizing Jrozsnaki and DRMCMTR.

Jrozsnaki, Your new POI File project is Hot!!! You have done a fabulous job making a fun and interesting hunt for spice for the rest of us. I am looking forward to seeing what other exciting projects you have in store for us after this one is complete.

When is Garmin going to include Advance Lane Guidance to its software.

I love my Garmin but before the Garmin, i had the TomTom 930 and loved the Advance Lane Guidance feature.

I presently own a Garmin 850. I did not need the bluetooth feature and I decide to get this one. The only downside is that it is expensive....

Hi All,

We have now surpassed 100,000 members, at the poi-factory.

Let's all give a standing ovation and a round of applause to Miss POI and Jon, for all of their untiring efforts in making this site, the best that it can be.

Congratulations in reaching this milestone...

Garmin Vehicle: Silver Roundabout

So, I sold my 350 to get the 650. Unfortunately, I never copied my vehicles from the 350 to my computer and thought I could get the "silver/grey roundabout" or "silver/grey euro" from Garmin's garage, but they now only have the blue available. Does anyone know where I can get the silver/grey one? Thanks!

NUVI 650

Nuvi 6xx series 4.50 firmware question...

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me if Garmin addressed the "skipping .mp3" issue with their latest (v4.50) update?

I'm using .wav files for my sounds and would like to know if those using .mp3 files are still experiencing the .mp3 skipping, when alerts trigger, on their units.

Thanks for your time.

Regards,

Tailspin

Do you or Don't you....TTS

Who uses TTS (text to speech). I've had my 350 for 1 1/2 years and didn't even know it existed. Then my friend got a 260W and I heard his and I was loving it so I finally checked my 350 and it was there! Now I use it on my 650.

Exterior Antenna Limitations

For all you techies out there; what are the limitations of the exterior antenna? Does anybody know what distance of cable is the max before the signal deteriorates? I am curious to see if I could make and modify a antenna cable to 100 feet. I'm curious to learn how much signal loss would be involved and if some sort of a booster would be required? confused

Accuracy again.

Just finished a 8K trip around the USA.

Used a few poi files.

I know I've said this before, but the files are horribly inaccurate.

About 80% of the locations were far off. Only about 1% were dead on.

do chipset matter ?
