Using poiedit, I can't convert sams.csv (garmin.csv) to sams.ov2. Any hints as to what I am doing wrong?

Low Cost GPS Performance

I have seen all the low cost GPS receivers advertised for Christmas some as low as 99 dollars. I wonder how they perform compared to say a Garmin Nuvi series. Would love to hear from everyone here who has gotten one of these models. Like to hear not only how it performs but what features the units have.

Still love my Nuvi but gotta love a 99 dollar GPS!


Officer I'm sorry I was going the wrong way on that one-way street but my GPS told me to turn left ... Oh, I'm still getting a ticket, okay then the GPS will see ya in court!

Garmin SP 550

My first post, so hope it's right! If I download the Red Light Cameras, is the purpose to alarm my GPS when I get near one?

E-Mail Back From Garmin About The Street Pilot C 330

What Does Everyone Think Of This For The C 330
Thank you for contacting Garmin International,
Nice unit & happy to help. Unfortunately the c330 would have never came
out w/the 2008 update thus the low selling price.

The most current version of map software available for your Gps unit is
City Navigator North America NT 2008. You can order this update directly
