Loading map route to 330

Is it possible to make a route in map source, save it , then put it on the SD card and use it in the 330?

I have nroute and could use the laptop but it is in the way. The 330 is just easier to use.

Thanks for any info.


Great Little Case

I just picked up a nice little case for my nuvi 350 from Walmart. It is leather and the belt clip is very strong and attached via a rivet (my other one kept falling off the case). It is intended for a Blackberry, but works great with the nuvi.

It is a "Bytech". The UPC code is 0511206096. It cost $17.17.

Thoughts about my new 650

Took my Garmin 650 on a trip to Florida last week. Drove from here in NJ on down to Orlando, had a conference to go to. Programed the “Gaylord Palms” address into the favorites, and off I went.

Can you run that by me again?

I looked, but could not find, where you can load POI files, naming them differently from other POI files. Upload, change name, etc

Coming to Boston

Going to Boston on the 4th of November, any road construction that I need to be aware of? Can I hit 90 (Mass Turnpike) and go all the way to Springfield without issues?

How much toll money will I need?
How are the speedtraps there? Do they use Instant On (IO)? What RADAR bands do they use?

Splash Screens

I can't remember if we decided or not to start a "Splash Screen" area (like the sounds and icons). I think that would sorta cool.

Pedestrian Mode

Just tried this in Greewich Village NYC.
Finding a restaurant was easy, even though I only knew the first word in the name of it. Some streets are only one or two blocks long, and could cost you lots more time without the GPS (NUVI 350)

FM Traffic, Not sure to renew

My C550 came with 3 months of free FM traffic. I loved it but not sure if I want to re-new. Accidents shown were gone by the time it showed up. A Detour took me much longer and I found out the accident was gone a while ago.

C330 and S D card

Hi, help please. I have a C330 GPS. I recently purchased a Kingston 2 GB, S D card. I downloaded the POI files i wanted. I then installed the POI files to the S D card using the POI loader with my memory card reader. Looking at the S D Card shows this, a folder called Garmin, in that folder is a folder called POI, in that folder is a file called poi.gpi.

This week we are recognizing Bwarden and Mrkenfl as our contributors of the week and giving honorable mention to FredL.

Bwarden, You took on a monster project this week and produced a nice POI Package with all the public transportation POI's for the whole Portland Metropolitan area. Great Job!!!!

The voice

I'm mystified how the synthesized speech works on these GPS's. If I put in the name of a street not originally in the map program the voice still knows how to say the street name. Anyone have any info on how this is accomplished?
