Which do I trust? (speedometer or GPS)

My nuvi 650 tells me I am going one speed, my spedometer tells me I'm going a few MPH slower. At 70, by the nuvi, it says almost 74 on the speedometer.... I'm inclined to think the nuvi has it right..

FAQ Submissions

I've added a new option under "Create content" that active users can use to submit a FAQ.

The option to add a FAQ only shows if your user account currently has active status (i.e., the windmill).

The FAQ won't appear on the site right away. Miss poi will need to look it over and link it from the appropriate FAQ subject(s).

Nuvi 7xx Series manuals are now listed @ Garmin.com

If you have any questions about the new units, Garmin has released the operators manuals, (both Owners and Quick Start)

You can walk a horse to water, but a pencil has to be led.

Downloading icons and sounds

Being completely computer illeterate can someone please explain to me in detail how to download icons and sounds. I have successfully downloaded the poi files for redlight cameras and rest areas but for the life of me can not download associated icons and sounds.

I know this question has probably been asked before but I can not find and references to it in any of the forums.

Garmin 680 and FM TMC

I recently purchased a Garmin 680 and have the trial subscription to MSN. If I wanted to use the FM TMC, do I have to buy a special receiver that replaces the current receiver that is used for MSN?

Who renews when the free traffic expires?

I am coming to the end of the free trial of the 660 traffic service, and I was wondering who has renewed already. I have used it on occassion, but still I am not sure.

bfk, I find your posts to be intelligent and well thought out. I enjoy the things that you teach us.

missing location on city navigator north america nt 2008 maps

I could not locate a Circuit City store close to me on my GPS system because it is not listed. I email Garmin support and this why the location is not included.I thought it was worth passing on.At the bottom you will see a web address for form to use for other areas you may be aware of and want to submit.

Thank you for contacting Garmin International. Circuit City is probably

great site!!

While recovering from a recent operation and having little to do, I spent many hours reading and learning about gps applications here at poi factory. This is such a great site. When I had a question, several people were quick to provide an answer, just as many others step up to help those with problems or questions. I was driving in Florida recently and my c330 alerted me to a red light camera.

Just a suggestion (page links near top)

Here's a suggestion for Jon and Miss POI. When a topic has so many posts that it creates additional pages (2,3,4,etc.), how about putting the additional pages link at the top of the first page of the topic, as well as at the bottom. That way, those of us who have been following a particular topic can just click on the page we want to go to, rather than have to scroll (albeit quickly) to the bottom of the first page to get to the additional pages link.

Other forums I belong to do this, and it is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Jon and Miss Poi for an excellent site.

I just uploaded a number of POI lists to my C340. I also had some "zipped" POI lists I found earlier on another site. Can these zipped files be uploaded along with the ones from POI factory?

Uploading vehicle images

I uploaded the RV.srf to the vehicle directory on my G650, I can see it there, but the choice doesn't show on the G650 vehicle list. It has "bicycle" on the list, but when that's selected it doesn't show up. And the bicycle image is not in the vehicle directory. WTF?

Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda Whine Cellar

It seems off-topic discussions are popping up in other threads and Miss POI needs a bigger venue to host the POI-Factory's halloween beer event. So, effectively immediately, I'm opening the virtual Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda Whine Cellar. Come one, come all! Bring your discussions, gripes, complaints and non-GPS discussions here.

"It's not where you start, but where you end up." Where am I and what am I doing in this hand basket?


Halloween Party at Miss POIs LOL
