There are a lot of out there that are concerned when our units slouch on their mounts and don't sit or stand straight. Well, technology has once again come to the rescue! How many of you will be ordering one of these to alert you when your unit isn't doing it's best?
If posted before - sorry I didn't find it.
Has anybody seen this bit of news?
I just purchased a new car and am adding in-dash Navi. The problem is I can't decide which to add for traffic, I can use either one. Has anyone here used both types of receivers that can tell me why one is better than the other? I have a SP c550 and I have the FM receiver which I love. I love that I now have a lifetime subscription. Why would XM radio/traffic be better than the FM receiver?
I'm trying to decide if I should buy the MSN® Direct Receiver / GDB 50 or just subscribe to Total Traffic Network. Has anyone tried the MSN Direct Service or NAVTEQ Traffic™?? How is it??
Just heard about this on the news what do you all think.
Just wondering what most people do.
Faced with crushing deficits, depressed tax revenues, and a grim outlook for 2009, states across the country are taking another hard look at taxing interstate sales completed on the web. Once a strict "no tax" zone, those walls are now on the verge of crumbling.
for those interested:
This should be real interesting,in the near future!
Down 24% in dollar sales, but up 5% in unit sales. It shows people were going after the bargains, but not buying as many of the higher end units.
Navteq must have just updated their maps database. On Microsoft's Live Maps site they are using the Navteq map database and now for the first time my subdivision and the one next to us are finally included. TeleAtlas maps on Google maps have had them both for months.
I would think that this is the new database that will be available next week when Garmin rolls out the lifetime maps option.
What happened to user generated traffic?
I wonder if this could possibly pass into law considering how attached many of us are to our cell phones. If it does, are GPS units next?
check it out little old but good info

Anybody here of any good/great after the holiday specials..just wondering. I say a Nuvi 260 wide at Tiger Direct for 189.00 anybody see anything else worth mentioning?
I'm experiencing a problem on my Nuvi 880, with dual song entries, in some of the song lists, on my 8gb micro SDHC card.
When I browse by artist and look through the songs (for that artist) I'm seeing double entries for some of the songs, in the list.
I can't seem to figure out how to correct the "double song entries" in the list.
The C-Net awards have been handed out at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The Tom Tom 740 is their #1 choice in the GPS category. Garmin's new 885T gets prominent mention too. Info on those and some new MIO offerings here: http://blogs.cars.com/kickingtires/2009/01/the-best-gps-te.h...
Focus on the Tom Tom 740 Here: http://ces.cnet.com/8301-19167_1-10135590-100.html
Ok, my wife tells me that I don't visit my mother-in-law often enough.
I told my wife I entered her mother's address into my GPS once and for some reason, the GPS couldn't find it.
So I'm thinking that it might make a good project for someone on POI FACTORY to start a new POI project, listing all our mother-in-law's addresses.
