I'm new to this hobby and have been using my windshield to mount the GPS. I live in California but have seen drivers, including my cousin (who is using it for 3 yrs) cluttered their windshield with radar detectors besides the GPS.
This week we are recognizing Mkahn, Sasines & Mcmargarine as our contributors of the week.
Mkahn, you are definatly a POI Factory MVP!!! We appreciate everything that you do for the community.
Sasines, you are on a role my friend, great job on the Marriott hotel project.
GPS annoying Newbie question #2
Unit - Garmin Nuvi 360
Issue - First trip out, left all settings at default.
Entered destination, got me there all right, but took me places through New Jersey to get to Upstate New York.
I have been around the destination AREA before so I assumed it would have taken me via major thoroughfares.
Ended up on a lot of service roads and boulevards.
I have a c330 and am wondering about waypoints. Garmin says that the c330 can have 500 waypoints. Does that mean that I can program a trip with 500 stops? If so, will the c330 organize and optimize the order to minimize time or miles?
Here is where to post your votes....
Remember you can't nominate yourselves or any POI Factory Staff members:)
I just purchased a Garmin C330. I have created a file for all Texas State Parks and other State Areas. I placed it in a folder under Custom POIs and in a subfolder called "Texas Parks". When I loaded it into the GPS and then schrolled thru the list under Custom POIs it will only show the closest 50 locations. The remainder appear to be in memory, but you have to spell them out to find them.
Does anyone have knowledge of a car vent mount for a Nuvi 350? Is it better then a friction mount or suction mount? Thanks
Can the Garmin StreetPilot C330 be configured to always display the current hundred block street address information while in "view map" mode? Thank you
Thanks to the person who combined the Offbeat Tourist Attractions files into one easy to use ALL STATES FILE. If I knew how to do it myself, I would have but instead I never bothered downloading each individual file. I just wish that the REST AREA FILES were combined in the same way so that I could use them for all states instead of jamming up my GPS custom Points list with 50 different files.
I bought the externam Mic for my 360. Callers complain that it echos when they talk to me. I am guessing its the speaker on the Nuvi feeding back to the mic.
Anyway to reduce the echo? Does the echo get reduced when you feed the sound to your car's stereo speakers. it seems like that would make it worse.
Does anyone know if I can put Google Earth satellite images on my Garmin nuvi? I would like to look at a moving map of actual city images to help find good shopping places.
This was in the Dallas Morning News today.
"The House voted to end the use of cameras to catch drivers who run red lights in September 2009
Over the last few days I have been running two households, mine and my best friends. She is on vacation with her hubby for the next couple of days and I have taken on her two boys. So I will not be answering emails in a timely fashion like I usually do because of the extra work with 2 additional kids and an additional house to take care of.
i have the poi for the wv va nc sc ga and fla rest areas, also the fla publix , flying j,s , travel americas ,and along my trip to fla none of the alerts went off except two ,one was a rest area in va and the other was on the new river gorge bridge in wva (which i didnt even put that one in)what could be the problem
I just made the update of my c330 with the software 5.50.
Anyone know how much memory the C550 has for uploading files like POI's?
hi all, anybody loading magellan maestro 4040 for red light cameras?.. Does it work?..How about those icons and voice alerts like garmin users did?..This is my first GPS and still learning, thanks.

I received an extra charger when I bought a dash mount on eBay and was wondering if I can somehow hard wire it into the fuse box or something. I know people do it with radar detectors and ipod setups. Is there a writeup anywhere on how to DIY this?
In a related question, do most people generally leave their unit plugged in most the time or go on battery power and only plug it to charge?
I just found a new release from Garmin for the nuvi 350 - v4.6
