Ran webupdater for Garmin 265 yesterday and a new update came up.I had 4.50 and new one is 4.60.
Mostly improved preformance issues.
I had this posted under another topic in Garmin, but I think it merits being here as well so owners of all makes can try it out.
At GPS Tracklog http://www.gpstracklog.com/
I agree with the features worth paying extra for...don't necesssarily agree with the features you don't need.
If traffic saves me once from a horrible backup, it's worth it. My FM transmitter works well around here, and people can hear me well over the Bluetooth connection.
What do you guys and gals think?
OK I was here like 4 or 5 months ago when we got 75K members. How many we got now??
Hello, I am new to the site and it looks great so far. I was wondering how the data is sorted so we are not all running around recreating duplicate POIs in different lists.
For instance, I would like to add a new QT gas station that is not already loaded on my Garmin. Since Quick Trip gas stations are already listed in a vast number, how can I be sure that I am contributing something new?
I just got a Garmin Nuvi 260W and just getting familiar with it. I use it even though I know where I'm going. It's good to see the detail surrounding the route. I am planning on taking it to California next week. Any special tips or advice?
Glad to have found this site I hope to learn a lot from it.
I have a friction mount I purchased for a Streetpilot c340 and I want to use it for a Nuvi 265wt.Trying to locate just the arm piece that will slide into the friction mount and lock .Can that piece be purchased without buying the complete set up?
No, I did not get a ticket-- but someone else did. I thought everyone would get a kick out of this-- Money hungry California.

How many have, or plan, to give a GPS as a gift?
Last week, I picked up a 650 for my parents. (Pre christmas etc.. It was a sale and it fit my parent's needs. She didnt want/need traffic. And besides if they needed it they can use the receiver from my 660. Plus, traffic services, in my experience, havent been all that useful anyway.)
hi not really a newbie but I just got a new 755t, does anyone have one, or fm traffic? how do you like it?

If you find a youtube video showing off the powers of GPS or POI-Factory post them here. They give people an idea how they work and what POI-Factory can offer to them.
This was taken from a column in Government Executive -
"I just finished reading the 40-page (actually 34 pages, subtracting three pages of acronyms and three blank pages) biennial report on the Global Positioning System, which Defense Chief Information Officer John Grimes submitted to Congress in October, and it looks like we could face a serious GPS satellite gap next year.
My question is if a POI has not been updated, who do we contact? Miss POI or the author? This author has not been online for over a year so I think the project is now an orphan. I'm updating the file myself, adding locations and incorporating some of the ideas in the 'POI Standards' discussion.
I would like to have my map display county lines. Does anyone know if that is possible on a Garmin 760
The linked article's not long, but here's the Cliff Notes version: using a hands-free headset while talking on a cell phone does not reduce errors, and cell-phone use generally is associated with a higher driver error rate than talking to passengers. This is from research just published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied.
In St. Louis they closed a 5 mile section of major highway to bebuild it. Currently, Navtaq routes me around this. On Dec 19 they will open the new rebuilt section and then close another adjacent section of highway, for 1 year to rebuild that section.
This week marks the 2nd anniversary of the COW Award Program.
We are recognizing theagle2 and Kch50428 as our outstanding members this week.
theagle2, You were the lead on the Algonquin, IL redlight camera project. I really appreciate how much time and energy you invested to make sure that those new locations were correctly reflected in the red light camera file.
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
Just got my new 765t last week. Very nice unit. I see some of the improvements, but still wish they would have better handled the sort order of your favorites.
It defaults by puting them in order by distance. I would rather it be alphabetical. A small issue, but otherwise a great unit.
