I-95 speed trap locations

I wanted to thank the person that posted this file. We just returned from a trip to Florida which involved traveling on I-95 throughout parts of SC, Ga and FL. We did see LE at several of the locations in the poi file.

I am back fora while..

I am back from vac and then was sent away again on a bussiness need. Will be going again soon.

I see that I lost my windmail.. Oh well.. thats the way it goes..

To all that have sent me great info for my poi files, I will be updatingthem and getting them on poi-factory as soon as I can.. Just been very busy with work..

how do you mount your Nuvi when you travel

When you travel, do you bring your suction cup and bracket with your Nuvi. I bought the Nuvi because it was so small an portable and I dont want to bring all the gear with it. However it slides all over the place if I put it in a new car.

Do you guys prop it up or wedge it somewhere in your rental cars?

School Zone Update

Using the info provided by forum members as a result of my earlier School Zone post question, I used the School POIs in the POI file list and set up my NUVI 360 to give me an audible signal when approaching a school zone. I then discovered that in the VA, DC & MD areas many local schools are not included, particulary the private and Church sponsered schools.

why include historical post offices?

for the post office file, is there any way to delete out all the historical post offices if they're no longer in service? any way to find the little blue metal usps boxes on street corners?

The "Kaiser" is Coming! (GPS phone)

Rumors abound, but HTC's newest SmartPhone, The Kaiser, looks like it's being picked up by ATT for either a Sep 10 or Oct 10 release. It has a GPS antenna built-in but comes with no maps. Supposedly Siif. Also has every other top of the line feature possible to cram into a smartphone and probably a price to match. The Smartphone world is all atwitter.

I don't know where I'm going or remember where I've been...without Garmin.

Garmin StreetPilot i2 $119.00


Just got my "Cheap stingy bargains" newsletter. It had a link to www.newegg.com for the Garmin Street Pilot i2 for $119 plus $5.84 shipping.

It's a good company to do business with. I've bought from them before.

Some info on the i2:

Map Update Reminder>>>

Does anyone know how to turn off these reminders? I figure there must be a file that can be deleted...

TIA, Ted

why Garmin's customer service number has been busy the whole day?

i have been trying to contact the customer service in regards to my free upgrade since i purchased my unit on August 7, but every time i have tried it shows busy signals. Does anybody have the same issue?

lovin Garmin


I just want to take some of the neat ICONS and put them on my Garmin nuvi 350 and be able to select those for my POI's that I already have in my Garmin, example McDonalds I want to be able to select that icon from my list of Icons is this possible. I have the POI loader and can attach all to my computer? Thanks for any suggestions or point in in the correct direction.
Thanks, TF

Switzerland's PND ban

PC Magazine May 22, 2007 page 22

Feature Rich portable navigation devices (PNDs) are now illegal in Switzerland-if one of the features is an overlay showing the location of traffic-camera speed traps and red-light cameras...

removal of poi c330

I have an outdated poi file csv of red light cameras,on my c330. Do they have to be removed before I download a new list from this site, or does it overwrite. If it needs to be removed, how do I go about it>

Senior newbie

Good morning all,

I am a recently retired guy with a new C340 toy to play with. My wife and I recently took it for a joy ride through the central Texas hill country to see what it could do. As the newer generation would say.....this thing Rocks!!

I am looking forward to learning a lot from this board and possibly making new friends along the way.



Red-light cameras in Canada

Hi everyone... I have been in China for about 3 weeks and have stopped over in Vancouver BC for a week before returning to Los Angeles. I have an updated red-light camera list and see red-light cameras all over but no warning when I approach them. Any ideas?

nüvi 660 & 670 - Hello I'm a Mac :))

Nuvi 670 Speaker Failure

Today, with no warning, all sounds coming from my Nuvi 670 became inaudible, as if the speakers cracked. All the sounds were "fuzzy" and completely undiscernible.
It appears that my internal speakers failed. I verified the speaker problem by connecting the headphone jack to my car stereo and then by switching over to the FM transmitter. The audio was acceptable when I did those two steps.

2008 Update for Garmin c330

Has anyone purchased and loaded the Map update 2008 City Nav. North America NT for a garmin yet? If so is there many changes?

POI as Favorite?

Nuvi 650 questions: Is there a simple way to make a POI a 'Favorite'? If so, how? Likewise, if I am viewing a map, is there a way to add a location to a Favorite? Thanks, from a new user.

Another nOObie

Hi all, I'm new to the forums as well as GPS. I just ordered a Garmin C530 for work purposes (Tow Truck Driver). Ive been wanting one for awhile and found one on-line for 249.99 which I feel is a fairly good price for getting my feet wet. As I said, I got it for work, but after reading many posts on this forum its looks like it could also be a great hobby (just what I need, ANOTHER hobby)!
