Vocal Alert Overdose!

I have a vocal alert for all of my custom POI files, and in the town where I live this isn't a problem.
Last week I was in Shreveport, Louisiana and had to go to Wal-Mart. By the way, the GPS worked great finding the closest store.
Anyway, I am going down a major street and all of a sudden my GPS went crazy!

Garmin Nuvi 660

Garmin Super Saver

When got my Nuvi I was given a "Super Saver" card and SD with it. Glad I did not pay for it b/c it has turned out to be nearly worthless. Everytime I have tried to use it I have had a problem, either they have no clue what it is or that they even except it and in most cases have outright refused to honor it. For awhile I would call the number provided but finally just gave up.

Where is the POI file I uploaded


I am new to the GPS world. I just downloaded a POI and ran the uploader software. Where can I expect to see the info on my GPS? I looked under Extras. It searched and the page said Custom POIs, but there was nothing on the list. What am I doing wrong?

Take a moment out today to remember the innocent people and brave heros who died Sept. 11th 2001, and if you have an opportunity, thank the people in uniform - police, fire, military - working to keep us safe.

Hello everyone,

Is there a quick button to map view

Does anyone know of a quick button or point on the screen to hit to do a quick return to the map view on a NUVI 6xx unit? Currently, when I have to, say go change the time zone, I then have to hit a bunch of "Back" buttons to get back to the map instead of a single point button, similar to the older unit I used to have (an iQue).



Costco is offering the Garmin C580 for $349 after an instant $100 rebate at Costco.com

Volume adjustments

Due to occasional ambient noise (window open, stereo, kids, etc) I find that at times my C-340 just is not loud enough. I do have it either at the top volume level, or just one below.

New GPS newbie here

Hey folks!

Got my nuvi 680 about 3 weeks ago, and I really like it.
I've been on the road a bit so I'm a wee little slow in picking up various tricks.

The ironic thing is, I am actually naturally good with directions and whatnot. I go driving and try and get myself lost. I figured the GPS would be a cool toy to find other ways around smile

Few comments/thoughts/questions:

Red Light Camera Question

I'm new to the world of GPS and have just purchased a Garmin c530. I joined this forum and downloaded the red light POI's.
