I received my free nuvi 200 gps and went to garmin.com site and logged it in and was given a free update to the 2009 maps. I paid $10.00 for the dvd so I would have a copy if I needed it later, other wise the download was free.
Does anyone know if an external battery charger is available, for the Nuvi 880's removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery or does it have to be charged while in the unit itself?
Thanks for your time.
Any Fellow Linux users out there using any software to work their GPS's..
or is everyone, using virtualbox and windoze to modify and load stuff?
I saw that the nuvi's and zumos had no problem using the voice utily file for there TTS units. Unfortuantely, I noticed that not to many with non-tts really experience any results or didn't notice to many...has any non-tts member sucessfully done it?
OK everyone, this thread needed to be started. What are you excited about, what were you surprised with?
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 just one outstanding member: H Hannah
H Hannah, You and sparky are part of the Monday morning ritual around here now. I always run to my computer to see what the new movie is about.
You have been working really hard collecting all of the RR-Xing locations for the US. This is a huge undertaking and we really appreciate it.

i am looking for a program that will check for duplicate Poi entries in my excell spread sheets (csv format)
Growing up in a small midwestern farming town, I used to like to find railroad crossings to sit at, or on an overpass and look down as a train would come through. I still have a few pictures of passing trains.
Does anyone know of a program that works on the Mac, for customizing TTS .vpm files?
I’ve seen several discussions regarding coordinate acquisition and the inaccuracies of some of the coordinates. I personally have been directly responsible for geolocating millions of addresses in my career. Hopefully this discussion will be helpful to some…..sorry for the length.
Saw this on the news tonight and thought I would share it:
I would like to put up sparky's name for the COW Award. I think that he has been very faithfull to the POI Factory. He is always ready to make us smile. I think that he would look good beside our Windmill.
Great site! I have searched, but have not found an answer to this question.
I know that downloaded and transferred POIs will be saved as "custom" POIs and will not effect "built-in" POIs. I need to know if they will overwright and replace the POIs that were loaded with my Mapsource Recreational lakes map software? Thanks for the help.
Using the Custom POI feature on my GPS, I created a “favorite” about ten miles ahead of where I anticipated traffic might become an issue entering each city. I also created a category called “traffic check” for each of these locations to be stored in. The point I picked was just before where my alternate route split off from my intended route.
It's there POI for Bally's and Signature Gyms in New Jersey. Please let me know. Thanks.
Good item on this coming battle between devices.
I own both devices and for now I will stick with my GPSr for navigation.
Brand new here and looking to enhance our new Garmin Nuvi 760 with some POI's other than the standard fare. Upgraded from Nuvi 360 by necessity, not by choice. Had car vandalized while on vacation last week and the "old" one was stolen.
Very much interested in the red light camera POI since I travel for business.
