I saw a few posts with people being excited with google maps offering a means to download waypoints directly to our Garmin GPS.
Then, there were people complaining about the fact that the GPS only got way points and not the routes generated by Google Maps.
If I was out whitetail deer hunting and wanted to walk to different points in a wooded area and make a trail to follow to get back to the point I marked how would I go about it I have a garmin 650 gps
Traveling from Durham, NC to Chapel Hill today, my Garmin Nuvi 200 indicated that I should exit left. In reality, the exit I needed was to the right. So I just kept on, and let the Nuvi "recalculate". It took me off the interstate onto a secondary road, which annoyed me since it was lunch time and I had planned to stop at the first convenient place I came to.
I have my gps set up for a 1/4 mile alert for Tim Hortons. Last night I went to Toronto for the Sabres/Leafs game and realized that while in Toronto, that alert was a bad thing. The GPS never stopped beeping. It did not take me long to turn off the alerts.
Does anybody have or know of GPS units that support bluetooth file transfers? I think it could be helpful... especially if you don't have or can't find your data transfer USB cable.
This is just my view and suggestion. When starting a topic use something to identify the subject in the topic name. When replying use the same topic title to keep the reply in that topic. I know this is a little harder to do in the open forum but I have had times when I replied to a post in my unread file and then read the nest topic and the same thing was there.
I just got off the phone with Garmin as I wanted to inquire about the possible update to the 2009 maps.The asked me to provide my serial number and when I did, they told me that my unit was the 1 millionth 660 to be sold this year and that I had won an all expense paid vacation for two to Hawaii.

I had bought a Tom Tom Go910 about 1.5 yrs ago. I traded it in for a Garmin 260w. Was that a mistake?
I bought a nuvi 260w. I am wondering if I can change the map colors. I know that I could on my tom tom 910 but not sure how to on this one
If anybody needs to edit .csv file or rearrange the format, there is a website that has a really good program for that. Check out http://csved.sjfrancke.nl/index.html
can i download speed cameras also or are they they same as the redlight cameras?
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 Motorcycle Mama, Ralphy1 and Robphelan.
MM, I always get choked up when I am recognizing you. You do so much for everyone here. There are no words to express my appreciation for all the help and support that you provide to this community. You are truly one in a million!!!!
I use my Garmin in my car all the time, but noticed in the manual it says it's not motorcycle friendly even though the software has a motorcycle option. I'm guessing it's not motorcycle friendly becasue of the size/mounting/weatherability. Can anyone who uses one with a motorcycle recommend a good one or give me tips you've learned?
I'm looking for a GPS unit with both "Reality View" and Dead Reckoning. Does any such animal exist? If so, who makes it? Anyone have any experience with the features?
Information Week has a 'GPS Buyer's Guide To Car Navigation Systems" article at:
that might make for some interesting reading.
Is there a GPS unit that integrates a radar detector? My friend said he has one that even gives the officers name who is registered to the radar unit.
I am not sure it is important. However, I compared some points in the gulf south rest areas.csv file with the identical point in the RestAreasCombined.csv.txt files. Unfortunately, they do not match.

Folks: The last several trips I have made with Jill (my GPS) she has been extremely accurate in her ETA. Like within minutes. Is this normal or was I just lucky? Hate to start depending on her predictions and have her let me down.
