new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk


How did it work?

This is really weird.... I just used Google Earth to create 2 custom POIs. One was the location of my house, the other the location of a local traffic/speed camera.

I named one "house" and the other "speed_cam1".

Thanks Frank

Dumb guy question - GPS, GPSes, GPSr

Ok, I've only been here three weeks, so maybe I haven't learned the secret handshake yet. I have a burning question.

Why do some refer to a GPS or GPSes (plural) as GPSr?

I know it's a flock of geese, murder of crows, school of fish, etc.. But what's a bunch of GPSes? A GPSr?

Inquiring minds want to know! smile

Nuvi 680 Quit working

My 3 month old Nuvi 680 quit working on a trip to Erie Pa this past weekend....just when I was starting to trust it too...........It just refused to pick up the satelite I took it back to Best Buy today and they replaced it with a brand new one.........Good thing I got the extra 4 year warranty...............Dave

Greetings - newbie Nuvi 350 owner

Traded-up my Garmin V for a Nuvi 350 and I'm loving it. Now I'd like to learn about/play with POI, esp. for speed/redlight warnings.

Has anyone seen this site?:

I wouldn't mind trying to download your red light/speed cam POI database, and augment it with locations from the above site (esp. Gaithersburg, MD)

Best regards,

Nuvi 360 going back

I'm sending my nuvi back because the sound quit working. I'm thinking of getting the nuvi 350 since it's on sale at costco. It's selling now for 469cnd 120 dollars less than what I paid for the 360. I belive the only difference in the 2 is that the 360 has blue tooth, which I dont use.Everything else is the same. Am I correct.

How do I get mp3 alerts onto my Garmin Nuvi 360 unit?

I-64 Project St. Louis

I am fairly new to this site. So if (locally named highway 40)recently was discussed I beg your pardon. This sea of misery is to go on for another year or two. The Garmin Nuvi 350 & Nuvi 660 are great in ordinary scenarios. But I wonder if the good folks at Garmin have seen this mess here as well as Alton route Missouri 367 north, which is my way home.

This week we are recognizing Hornbyp and Thetraveler as well as giving honorable mentions to MikeL and Kch50428.

Hornbyp, it is really nice to have you as our resident GPX expert. You are a wealth of knowledge that everyone appreciates. I always learn something new when I read your posts and the way that you write makes it easy to understand what you are trying to explain.

New 660

Hey guys, I upgraded from my nuvi 360 this weekend to a 660 and I cannot believe the difference the extra inch makes in the screen. I do have one question however. On my 360, which has the traffic adapter attached, when a traffic alert would come up it would list all the incidents near me and then I could prees the desired one on the list and was shown the details.


Chat Room?

Congratulations on a useful site.

I'm new to the GPS world but have a fairly techie bend.

Does this site have a chat room or are there other GPS oriented sites which do where users can exchange tech tips.
