new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk



Here's an informative article on the subject:

Forewarned is forearmed!

Foxfire and U3 drive

I've used a U3 drive to keep my passwords for quite awhile now. I have founf that while traveling I can use anyones computer and have all my password accounts available from the U3 drive thus making it not necessary to type my passwords on anyone's computer, thus not having to worry about security.

Anyone willing to help me make a POI for all Hollywood Studios?

A POI of all the studios would make it possible for entertainment industry professionals to navigate quickly and could be interesting for tourists too. I will supply the addresses.
Anyone interested in helping me make one?

European GPS

Looks like Europe is getting a new GPS system. The last paragraph gives a good explanation of EGNOS.

The new wave for GPSr's will be the ability to track the unit. Will come in handy for those stolen units.,8599,1735091,00....

My Garmin won't talk to me

Shortly after I got my Nuvi 350, it stopped talking. I have tried changing settings, going back to default settings, etc. Nothing seems to bring her back! I bought it from online. Do I have any recourse with Garmin or Walmart?

the garmin 780 msn

after you pay the $129.00 for a life time member, is the traffic & etc free.

I have 3 GPS: Garmin nuvi 1690 Magellan Maestro 4700 Garmin 3760 LMT


I would just like to know if these poi's will work for the PPC versions of the GPS software.


Total Red-Light Cameras

Just a little curious as to why the total never seems to change even though the red light locations are updated each week? It's been 298 for a long time.
For example:

"Washington, DC / Baltimore, MD Area (298)" Thanks smile

nuvi' 2450

Which is better DVD or Data Card?

I am going to purchase the Europe maps and not sure which is a better choice. On the one hand, The DVD can be used to install as few or many countries as you wish. , on the other hand, with the Data Card it can only be used as is and not transferred to your GPS. The DVD also required an unlock code.

The Chit Chat Thread for the week of April 28th 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.

2009 Map updates

Is there a way to tell if the new 2009 maps include road information for my area? I would like to see if there is a new road in my area (finished 2 years ago) or would I waste my money only to find out it is not there...... Thank you grin

map update contents

when purchasing a map update ,is that a complete update of hotels ,gas stations ,etc..etc...etc...,or is it simply what it says ,A MAP UPDATE ???

my drinking team has a racing problem ...( garmin c330..delorme earthmate LT20 )

Ham Radio VHF/UHF Repeaters???


I just got my "Ham" License (Amateur Radio) and I wonder if there is enough interest to try locating VHF/UHF Open repeaters??

Sort of a handy thing, but if your radio is on, you're probably gonna know there either is or isn't one nearby.

Just a thought!

Stay thirsty my friends - don't drink and drive!
