Will be offering the Nuvi 680 in about week. Can't wait to see what that price will be.
I have downloaded sond icons into a folders. Can you tell me how to load them into the GPS (C330) so they will appear on screen (red light camera icons)
Can someone tell me what the number 14 means when it shows up on the enter address icon on the main menu.
I'm pretty sure it appeared after I uploaded a wifi poi file. I checked the address book and there are no entries in there.. I also checked the number of wifi hotspots and there are way more than 14..
I think most people believe that the favorites icon distance appearance for custom poi's was defaulted to around 300ft to 800ft and could not be changed. However, on mine, while it has a default setting of 800ft, and the icons disappeared at anything over 800 ft, I can now customize it to anywhere from 300 ft to 5 miles. Had this gpsr over a year and just learning that.
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
This week we are recognizing Xnman and JM as our contributors of the week and also giving honorable mention to CBRdan and Gregb882.
Xnman, you are the new fresh face at the POI Factory, you blew into town 2 and a half weeks ago and have really become a member of our knowledgeable helpful family. It is really great to have you in the forums.
It would be really great if one could, using MapSource, draw a perimeter around a certain area which would be then designated a 'no go' area for the GPS unit unless the address or destination desired is within that area.
In this manner users could set up avoidances for heavy traffic intersections/ turnpikes or high crime areas etc.
Can I download custom icons onto this model? Cause it's not working...
i thought i had the poi down pat but i dont. i cant get it to talk and and say redlight camera ahead and etc. i have the 3 files all named the same exept for the extension and it just beeps when i get to a camera. also another thing i cant get it the sub directories. i would like a folder tha says fuel, and within that folder another folder tha says esso, and another one flying j and so on.
Just Wanted to let everyone know that MapQuest has a new beta version out and it works well with the Garmin Mapping its from NEVTEQ Give it a try here is the site
This maybe already answered somewhere but I couldn't see it. Anyway, after you download a POI icon and transfer it to your GPS are you able to then check the map and see it? For example can I view the icon for a rest area that is at the other end of the country?
I am looking for Wal-Mart Supercenter Only POI.
What suggestions does anybody have?
I guess I could load all Wal-Marts and then delete
Non-Supercenter Locations ?

If you live in one of the few areas that don't participate in this biannual ritual, please disregard this public service message....
This week is going to be extra hard for me to choose just a few people to recognize. There have been some huge behind the scenes action this week.
Let me know what you have seen and feel needs to be recognized.
I picked up a Garmin 660 a few weeks ago with the 2008 maps already loaded. I guess that makes me a newb. For the most part I'm very pleased. Although I have encountered some side-streets that don't exist and it not recognizing I'm on a ramp deviating from the projected route.
I found this site just before a trip from Chicago to St. Louis.
i cant seem to get my poi to say camera ahead. i named a mp3 file the exact same name as the acual poi file. the icon, i can get to show but not the mp3. what am i doing wrong
