Google Map And Home Address???

I know this has been posted in the past, but it is strange that Google Maps, actually Yahoo maps also, has moved my house up the road. It was OK for the last several days,,,any idea for what's happening? It ain't the GPS's fault.

downloading from Google maps

I am having a problem downloading from Google Maps to my Garmin Nuvi 760. Google deoesn't seem to recognize my 760 and only wants me to send the map as an email. I don't think the problem is my USB cable because it works with everything else. Has anybody else had a problem like this? idea confused: confused:

Do Not Plug Your iPhone into iTunes

The upgrade to 2.0 is mandatory and Apples activation servers have been brought to their knees. Apple says it could be all day. They had to know they had at least 4 million existing phones to upgrade along with the rollout of the 3G phone and should have been better prepared, maybe a staggered rollout either allowed the old phones to update a few days before or after the 3G intro.

Google Earth

Just a curious question. Is there anywhere a person can go to attempt to get your town to show up better in satellite view? I can see better detail in a lot of smaller areas around us (Dubuque, IA) than I can here. I realize this is probably complicated but I'd sure like to request better resolution if there was a place to request it.

This will be my FIRST GPS Road trip ever!

Would you buy an SUV?

I came across an article from about a month ago. For some people, buying an SUV makes sense.

A minor complaint

(Didn't there used to be a forum for Comments to the Operators....or something similar ??)

I have noticed lately that, after posting a reply in a multi-page thread, the program takes you back to the FIRST message of the thread (first page).

HOW TO: What is the Best Way to Permenently Install a GPS in Your Car?

Since I live in California it is illegal to affix the GPS to the window. I heard that it is possible to have your GPS permanently installed so that none of the wires (ie power cords, audio jax) are visible. Does someone know how that is done? or know of a website that explains how to do this?
