European GPS

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

tracking the unit

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

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 Walmart.com 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

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

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 ???

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!

MSN Direct Traffic Experience?

Since my 3 month subscription has expired with the TMC Traffic adapter, I am considering the purchase of the MSN Direct Traffic adapter cord for my Garmin 760.

Great Read: No Left Turns....Take 3 mins. & enjoy

This is a wonderful piece by Michael Gartner, editor of newspapers large and small and President of NBC News.

In 1997, he won the Pulitzer Prize for editorial writing.

It is well worth reading, and a few good chuckles are guaranteed.



My father never drove a car. Well, that's not quite right. I should say I never saw him drive a car.

My 1st GPS

I finally purchased a gps an chose the Garmin nuvi 680. I based my decision on Consumer Report's review and was wondering what the forum's concensus was on this model. Is there anything I need to watch out for with this model? I purchased it from TigerDirect.ca.
