HOW TO: What is the Best Way to Permenently Install a GPS in Your Car?

Since I live in California it is illegal to affix the GPS to the window. I heard that it is possible to have your GPS permanently installed so that none of the wires (ie power cords, audio jax) are visible. Does someone know how that is done? or know of a website that explains how to do this?

MM, I find it entertaining that people are always trying to beat your response time. You have consistently been one of the top 5 contributors in our community. I don't know what this community would be like without you. You are amazing and we all love you!!!

Chit Chat Thread for the week of July 07th 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.

My 760 is still new

POI Location "Location"

I have perused the forums and searched, yet have been unable to locate this topic - although I'm sure it's already been answered here somewhere...

Let's say that a store opens in a new location, in a newly built up section of land. The streets don't exist yet on the maps. Before I start submitting all of the new stores on the parcel of land, where is the proper location to mark the POI?

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .

capacity of Nuvi 760

Does anyone have a rough idea of how much space we have to add additional POI's to the 760 ?

Another newbie question

When I download the Cold Stone Creamery link it sends me to an internet web address. Is this correct?

Mom and Pop Burger Joints

Just seen on tv last night that they are going to feature Big Ben's burger barn in Roy Utah on the next show of Diners,Drive-ins and Dives. That's good to bad they wouldn't mention something about poi-factory and the poi list we have here on places that are not chain owned.

Has anyone had experience with this model GPS, especially as it relates to motorcyles? If so, what are your recommendations?

However when i looked for Oregon Beaches in the main Complete Listing, it wasnt there.
