new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk


Wanted TO say "Hello".

Just got my Garmin streetpilot c530.. I think I am going to love it. We are going to vacation in a few days and think it is going to be as handy as a "pocket on a shirt".. lol. Just found this site and love it,if I can ever figure out what you all are talking about. I am still trying to figure out what a MapSource is.....?

Almost forgot

Can anyone tell me why when I loaded the 'Red Light Camera" POI file onto both my SD card and the internal memory for my nuvi 680, why it is not showing up at all on my GPS when I'm on the road? I passed through several intersections today with cameras and got no notification. Thanx.

Can I use Bluechart Americas v8 with nuvi 350?

Can I? Or will I have to get a certain GPS system to use this?

-Thank you,

Whats the difference wbetween this map & the one on your Nuvi

On Garmin's site th ey sell the
SD data card, City Navigator NT, North America for $139.00

Is this what is already loaded on a Nuvi 360 when you buy it? Is there any reason you would spend $139 to get this map Garmin sells?

c330 and direct GPS coordinate entry

I just emailed Tech Support at Garmin asking them if they planned on introducing Direct GPS Coordinate entry on the c330 like what exists on the NUVI series. They are going to add this request to their "Comment Box" but they have heard of no plans for such additional functionality. It would be really nice to be able to have that added.

Sheetz Stores

Anyone interested in a POI for SHEETZ stores should visit the site listed below. You'll find both .csv and .ov2 formatted files created by the SHEETZ people themselves.

There's a SHEETZ icon available as well.

Just saying hi and glad I found this website yesterday. I have been using TomTom Navigator 5/6 for just over one year with my Treo smartphone. I have it loaded with redlight cameras, speed traps, and other POI's.

Hopefully I will be able to take advantage of the great information found here and contribute with some POI's that I have planned to create in the near future.

Best GPS for lakes in AR/MO?

I've got a Garmin 7200 in my truck and love it. I'm thinking about a hand held to use in my bass boat. Although I've never really gotten lost on the lake (at least not for long) I would feel a little better knowing how to get back to camp without searching.
Anyone have a Garmin 76 series and the inland lakes map? That seems to be a good one reading Garmins site. Or any other reccomendations?

Just saying Hello

Just thought I'd say a simple hello. I'm glad I found this site. This site will come in handy with the new Garmin Nuvi 350 I just bought.

I used to use a combination of Earthmate USB GPS, Street Atlas 200x and a laptop to do my navigating.


How many favorites

How many favorites can you save in Nuvi 350 and Streetpilot c550?

Have a new garmin

Well, after my c320 got stolen a few months ago, I broke down and bought a new garmin, nothing fancy, I got the c330 it was on sale for 269.

First Trip with the Garmin 7200

Well, I'm recently returned from a week long camping trip to Illinois. My first trip with the Garmin 7200 and City Navigator NT.



I'm going nuts trying to download some POI's. When I try to open a CSV file.....nothing happens. It goes to File Download, I click goes to Window IE for a second and screen is blank. In addition, I have not seen anything prompting to do anything. I'm sure frustrated over this Garmin. I bought it because of the download feature but can't get it to work. I've gone step by step.

"None Found"

Hi. I'm new at custom POIs. I have a Garmin iQue M4. I downloaded a POI file from this site (Kentucky State Parks) and ran Garmin's POI Loader. Everything worked up to that part. When I select "Where to", then "Food, Hotels....", then "Custom POIs" I see the file called "Kentucky State Parks" but when I click on it it says "None Found".

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks is advance.


Garmin 330 GPS coordinate entry and interesting NC mountain trip

Does anyone know if Garmin will update the FIRMWARE of the 330 to allow direct GPS Coordinate entry like the NUVI? Is that even a possibility? I have left an email with Garmin about this but haven't heard anything from them.

where to buy POI database file.

Do you know where can we buy more POI database file for Magellan 2200t?

POI database file.

I am new and have the Roadmate 2200T and kind of disappointed with 1.5Millions POI which is way less than the 3000t, 760. I just wonder if any one can extract the POI database from 3000t, 760 and import into the 2200t?

Creating POI files from Google Earth searches?

I'm wondering what sources are allowed for use to create POI files for this site? I have a compiled ov2 of free wifi in the phoenix area as well as some other ov2's, but they are largely created from google earth searches which I've converted with POI edit. Does anyone else do this? And is it considered valid information for this site?

Any Kawasaki Bike dealers POI?

is there a file for Kawasaki Bike dealers in the usa?
