OK, since I have to post X amount of times before I can download many of the valuable tools on this site, let us mark this as the first of 3... I really dont have the emotional energy to engage in discussion, but would like to use this site. I guess I could just pay, but this is the internet... Cmon, when was the last time you payed for user provided content? Hmmm...
I am planing a 3 week raod trip from Rochester NY to Eugen Oregon i would like to take mostly US route 20
going west and US route 60 coming back. Is there a way to specify a US route number as the main route of travel?
Here is a good site for all your on the Road needs For Repair , Tires, Towing, And What ever Else you might Need
Is it possible to change my user name without starting all over.
Hey I am planning a trip to Boise ID and noticed that my nuvi 360 used the interstate all the way. If I enter a via point on state hwy 221 it drops 9 miles and a few minutes off of my travel. If I ask it to take me from Prosser WA to Hermiston OR it will take that shortcut.
There is a phenomenon in Kentwood, MI known as the "Michigan Left Turn". This maneuver requires you to go past the intersection where you want to make a left, then make a u-turn in specially provided places, return to your intersection and make a right turn.
Is there a thread on the site about making speed poi's with mapsource?
If not, is it possible to make one using mapsource that will go on a poi file and not put them in the my favorite file?
An interesting tidbit that may or may not help a few that have asked 'how to format my SD card'.
After someone pointed me in the right direction, I found this info on Tigerdirect.com and hope they don't mind if I pass it on. I for one have puzzled over the compatibility of different formats for my Garmin Nuvi 880. Maybe this will be useful to others:
While surfing another website, I came across this thread of someone following their Garmin directions.
The person writing did not state too clearly wether the driver was following a route to a destination or not.
I hope the link works.
I visited the Garmin site and it has a new update for the Communicator Plugin. http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=3607
Changes made from version 2.5.2 to 2.6.1:
Aviation databases can now be updated and/or installed from a Garmin Web Site.
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.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
This week we are recognizing Tailspin, Ktempesta, and Gofish
Tailspin, It is so nice to have you as a part of our family. You are always so helpful and knowledgeable about so many different things. This week you really helped out with your advice about "Text-to-Speech" programs.
Does the speed camera function on a GPS work by latitude and longitude or by position on a highway?
The old Roads and Recreation maps had some very interesting geographic POI such as distant hills, valleys or mountains. On long trips I found these interesting and I have been looking for something similar in POI to load onto my Nuvi. I have found waterfalls and national monuments and forests but nothing showing hills, bluffs etc. Can anyone point me to a POI listing for these features?
This link is a little off topic, but it does involve some travel. I can't help but smile when I watch this video. Again and again... It would be cool to see the the track on his GPS, if he's got one.
check out his web site too. What a cool gig.
Used Rt 414S towards Watkins Glenn last week my alert went off with the low clearance ahead. There is no bridge at that location. I tried to find the co ordinates in the file but did not. It went off right at the Watkins Glen KOA
There is some info out for the upcoming (late fall) release of S&T at
there is input from some of the MS S&T team about new features and bug fixes.
