Canadian & US Airport Customs info on GPS

I will be flying to the US from Canada and would like to take my gps on board with me. I would like to know if anyone has had any trouble with the customs people either coming or going at the airport over ther gps. I would hate to have to leave my gps at the airport. Just because some customs officer thinks I should not have it on board.

Thank you for your replys.

Strauss Discount Auto POI

Hi guys,

So we don’t have double efforts being made. I’m working on a Strauss Discount Auto POI covering PA, NJ and NY.

GPS-less jitters

Well, I'm heading to Watkins Glen in the Finger Lakes region of NY this weekend for a BMW motorcycle rally. Been there a dozen times, so it should be a no-brainer. But trying a different route this time, through back roads I'm not familiar with. And horror of horrors...no GPSr. I've been toying with getting a Zumo for the bike, but just never have gotten around to it.

Garmin 765T...Is it about the destination, or is it about the journey?


We've finally hit the big time. This morning the comic strip Crankshaft deals with the GPS. See http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/comics/crankshaft.html.
The forum on names for your GPS talks about how our spouses have been replaced at telling us when we make a wrong turn as cartoonists Batiuk and Ayers seem to have noted. grin grin grin

Chit Chat Thread for the week of August 25, 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.

AData microSDHC 8gb class 6 card

After much searching for the high capacity clsss 6 microSDHC card online, I found the Adata card. After I run the latest update to my Nuvi 880 software, I will plug the card in. Then I can add as many POI files, and maps, as I want. I will even get a few of the Audible.com books for the GPSr!

Missing Michigan locations

I'm very new to downloading POIs but I've grabbed several to try out. I noticed that for Barnes & Noble and for Applebees that after loading, the nearest locations are around 500 miles from my West Michigan home. The files didn't indicate which areas were covered to the best of my recollection.
Am I missing something or are these just incomplete for the U.S.?


USB device (GPSr) not found or recognized in Windows XP

This applies to my Garmin Nuvi 680, but I put it here, because it is actually a more general issue that applies to removable drives or devices in general.

I was having trouble using my Nuvi at work. It seems Windows was assigning it to an already used (by our network) drive letter. So no access to the Nuvi for anything.

Have Monopoly - will travel

I needed to share (and gloat a bit cool) this with travel minded peolpe:

Montreal has won through popular vote the honor of the top spot on the new MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition.



Who says they are not to generate revenue. Here in Atlanta they can't decide what to do with the money now that there is a profit.


Combined POI search?

Is there a way to see your custom POI's when searching in the factory POI section, or are the two groups mutually exclusive?

As I understand it, if I want to search them, I need to go to "extras" then "custom poi's" then search there.

Thanks to all for any thoughts.

Can someone go email me the gmapprom file from the extraction of the IQUE 3600 base map.
