NuShield Anti-Glare shield

A friend of mine ordered the Nushield anti-glare shield for his C330. They come 3 to a pack and his screen is the same size as my C530, so he is sending me one. He is pleased with the results. Have any of the forum members tried anti-glare screens on their GPS units?

Lakes & Boat Launches

Does anyone have a database for a Garmin nuvi 760 to locate lakes and boat launches in Connecticut, New England or the USA?

How does one go about finding and/or producing this type of information to be put on a personal travel assistant.

It seems to me and anyone I have spoken to that this database would be invaluable to boaters and fishing enthusiats.

Chit Chat Thread for the week of May 26th 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.

Memorial Day

As we all create routes or put destinations in our GPSr for this Holiday weekends travel, lets not forget the Men and Women that served our country with such honor and made the ultimate sacrifice for all Americans.

GPS unit without POI's

I was wondering where I could find gps units that have no poi's on them. It doesn't matter what brand but I do want to be able to add all of the Poi's in certain areas myself.

An example would be adding all the Poi's for a tourist location and no other Poi's for the surrounding areas.

Any suggestions?

Where is product key on the new map update disc ?

I received the new NA map update 2009 disc today and began the install process by inserting the disc but when I do, it asks for the product key. Well, there is none. There is a s/n but no product key and I have looked high and low on the disc and the jewel case and the packaging and there is none and no papers in the envelope. Anyone know where to find the product key? Am I missing something?

Off to Hawaii

I'm off for two vacation to the islands. I most likely will not have computer access during that time.

Everyone have fun while I'm gone.

Waterproof Hand Held GPS'

I'm looking for a waterproof hand held GPS for my son to Kayak with. Any recommendations with good prices? I'd like it to be able to track it's route and be able to upload the info to a computer. Additionally, if it could also provide GPS position to a laptop, that would be great also.

Jihad THIS!! Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

New and need suggestions.

Hey, I am currently deployed to Iraq, and will be coming home in less than a month. I am trying to find the best GPS in the $300-400 range. I've kind of set my eyes on the Garmin Nuvi 760. Is there anyone that could offer some more suggestions? I will be going on a cross country trip to Dallas, TX and Savannah, GA. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Sanborn Tele Atlas?

Who or what is "Sanborn Tele Atlas"? A recent link sent to me took me to a Google Map of the location and the copyright on the map page is "Map Data @2008 Sanborn Tele Atlas". I thought Google used NavTeq?
Here's the link:
