Just got a Nuvi 360 and looking to download POIs.
Where may I find a POI file for Hess service stations?
I am sure some of you are familiar with NASA's on-line satellite tracking software. If you select "Navigation" satellites you can see where the GPS are in relation to the earth.
The PRN x number is the satellite ID that matches my data screen on my Mio unit.
Using the Nuvi 750, to me it seems that the announce notice to turn etc is often quite short, even at low speeds(30 mph) One hardly has adequate time to get into the proper lane. Not always, but often Anyone else agree? I guess I was spoiled with VzNavigator with also uses Navteq mappings. It would talk you to death several times before the turns.
I notice my Nuvi 760 gets confused when recalculating in major overpass intersections. Does it read it's current GPS elvation data and determine the current height, so it knows if it's on the elevated freeway, or at street level?
I notice it gets confused when making a u-turns an elevated freeways.
This is a great site. But I was wondering who creates these files that all the GPS compamies are using this is in reference to the ones that come preloaded in the GPS when they are purchased. Also how do we update the file if they are missing locations for example the dunkin dounuts file seems to be missing stores where I Live.
I'm new to the group but a long time GPS user. I found your group after I got a Mio C320 for Christmas and was looking for help on importing POIs and using all the other cool features on my new toy. This is a way cool group!
Next time a black and white police unit cruises by you look inside at the dash or windshield.
Can you spot his/her GPS?
GPS is becoming a great tool for patrol officers.
Just a quick hi there everybody. I have recently bought a Garmin 250w up in Canuckland and have been searching for a descent Garmin GPS forum, and it seems I may have found one.
Want to see what the consensus is regarding; "the ultimate GPS receiver for the techno geek"?
I have an upcomming trip to Austin for work and am looking for recomendations of places to see. Anyone from that area have a favorite place?
I'm especially interested in parks, gardens, etc...places I can take my camera and enjoy an afternoon stroll.
Thanks in advance.
Does anybody know a good site were i can convert degrees mins seconds to decimal degrees?
1/05 Update: I've uploaded all of the Canada/US crossings. I've moved the corresponding US POE into the title to make more room for the hours of service (some of them are lengthy!).
This is why you still need to pay attention when you drive and not completely rely on your GPS. Original article can be found here...
Let's be safe out there!
