IE opening another window with a link

Admins,

What are the chances that you can modify the site so when you click on a link, it opens another window. That way, we can alway go back to the original page that we were on without going back back back.

FDNY Quarters POI

Just wanted to let everyone know that the FDNY QUARTERS POI has been updated. I'd like to thank Bob (rbbb) for his assistance with this.

Where are my custom POI's?

When I download a .csv file to my Nuvi 200, POI Loader indicates that the poi's were successfully installed. However, when I try to retrieve them from the Nuvi I get the following message, "No Matches Found". I don't have a problem with .gpx files. What am I missing? This seems so trivial.

Red Light Camera Actual Locations

Is it possible to have the red light camera spreadsheet translate back to addresses to download?
I could use this to know that camera locations I see are new or old, so that I can submit the new ones.

Red Light Camera CVS file order

I am not by any way more than the most casual type of Excel file user. Therefore if this question is off the mark I plead ignorance in the use of Excel.

I opened the latest Red Light Camera file to see if I could edit the file to have only the locations in NYC and NJ. To my surprise I saw that the individual locations are not in any specific order but are grouped in random order.

Problem with CSV file (No Matched Found)

When I download a .csv file to my Nuvi 200 the POI loader says that the pois were successfully created. However, when I try to access them through the custome poi icon on my Garmin I get the following error message,
"No Matched Found". What does this mean? and How can I correct it? Where did the POI's go?

thanks

Nuvi 350 just dies...

Has anyone had a Garmin Nuvi simply die?

Coordinates don't match location

I'm new to this and I'm probably missing something simple but I can't get my coordinates to show up in the right location. I have a Garmin 200W and I was playing with POI's speed files. The 200W will give coordinates if you tap on the car while driving. I saved these and made my POI file for "speed" and entered the info.

GPS theft

There was an article in the local newspaper this week, about GPS thefts from cars. It isn't enough to remove your GPS from sight. If a thief sees the mounting bracket, they break in and look for what was connected to it. The article also said the some police are giving out free microfibre cloths to clean the window after you remove the mount from the windshield.

Hello (foxstar128)

I just joined because for the first time in my life I have a GPS system. I think it is exciting and fun. I bought it for my wife as a birthday gift, but I have fell in love with it. Well I just posted to introduce my self.

Speed Alert?

Is there a speed alert that will tell you to slow down when you are going over the speed you set it for? If I set it for 70mph and I go over that speed I want it to yell at me to slow down. Is there a way to do this? I have a streetpilot 2720.
Thanks

garmin (iq3600) to other platforms

In my palm address book I have a lot of locations from my old garmin iq3600. these have what looks like hexdecimal numbers in the custom 4 category does anyone know how to convert these to a poi I can use in a tom tom 910??

For instance Best Buy store
Garmin 143A2200 C61D2200 B0024

Is there a way of converting this to a Lat & Long to input into the tom tom.

USB cable & program for nuvi200

I just got a nuvi200 and the store told me that it can't be hooked up to a computer. Well needless to say he is wrong.
My queston is will a USB cable I have for a card reader work on this unit? It looks the same. And what program do I need to map a rout out and send it to the GPS?
I presently have MapSource Ver 6.11.6.

I can't find any info in this on the Garmin site.
