Garmin Europe stance on North America upgrade

I purchased a Nuvi 670 end of June 2007.

E-Mailed Garmin 6 days ago about upgrade, to date no reply.

Phoned Garmin Europe (I live in the UK) and was told under no circumstances are Garmin giving free upgrades. I would have to pay and the cost would be approx £50 with a two week wait.

Are we there yet?

This is what most kids scream from the back seat. What do POI Factory children say if they want to know if we are there. "I wonder when we will arrive at our final destination" popped out of our six year old daughters mouth the other day. I have to say it gave me quite a giggle. Never thought that my little Garmin would be changing the language of my children.

What POI to do next? TREASURE HUNT

Hey, I haven't checked the poi files for this but, we can have POIs for hunting for treasure. If you go to and then look for the show: "Best Places to find Cash and Treasures" and then click on treasure hunt toolkits. You will find the long. and lat. that you can put in your GPS.

Drive-In Theaters USA & Canada Project discussion

Curiosity got me today, and wanted to double check a few things on some of the files I created earlier. I was pleasantly surprised to see download count for Drive-In Theaters = 1017. Wow! Thanks again NickJR for your help.

Voice Activated GPSr for under $1000?

One of my collegues mentioned availability of a voice activated command unit (similar features to one featured for the Acura) for under $1000, featured on a recent television program. Does anyone have any information on this unit? I have not been able to locate it.

Yay!!! Nokia 9300 Contacts Sharer with Nuvi...!

Hi all.
Trawling through the forum I came across this link to an application which allows one to get the Nokia 9300 (&9500) to share/ transfer it's contacts with the Nuvi series.

There is no actual page - the download prompt will appear immediately.

- Transfer the file to your phone.

is it legal to u-turn or left-turn across double solid lines (1 pair) in California?

I know that I can't make any turn across 2 pairs of double solid lines (they are treated like a virtual wall).

Just downloaded my first POI files into my 660 GPS. Thanks to all of you in this form, it went very well. You all are a great group of people to take time helping new members with what must seem, the same questions over and over. Thanks again, your class people.

Favorites symbol/icon changes itself


I noticed that when I add some POI to my Favorites and I change the symbol from the default black square to something else (i.e. House icon/symbol), that they change back to the black square after the unit has been powered back on. Not all of them changes. It appears to be a random thing.

GPS Labelling Tip

As the Nuvi 670 doesn't leave a heck of a lot of space to put a personal sticker or anything on it I came up with a solution for put a 'If found please return' label on it.

In any graphic editor program create a .jpeg with the text:

This GPS unit belongs to Wizard of Oz
mobile: 555-6969

Rickshaw Handelbar mount for Nuvi

I am leaving for a month travels in china and I’m wondering if anyone knows of any practical reason that I should bring my Nuvi with me. I haven’t seen any Garmin maps of Asia and even if there is I don’t think I would understand the Chinese characters used for the street names. Anyone have any thoughts?
