NAVTEQ Updates

I've informed NAVTEQ several times about a mistake in their map. They have not yet corrected it. Does anyone know the process they go through to make corrections? How long does it usually take? Is there some guy that comes out and physically verifies the correction or is there some other source on which they rely?



That Ausie Karen cracks me up sometimes...

Was on the road in Des Moines when Karen tells me to exit to "George 'the 1000th' Mills Parkway"...while the green bar at the top of the map said "George M Mills Parkway"....

I'm still giggling over that one...

Car Vent Mount for Garmin Nuvi 670 report...

Hi Everybody,

I just bought a Car Vent Mount for my Nuvi 670 from

unit "will not" come off the vent because the clip hooks
onto the inner edge of the vent slot. To remove the unit you

Stopping Sun Glare

I just purchased and used the sun visor I bought from: www.glarestomper.com. It is well worth the price which was under $18. Go to the above website and see all the different models they make. From glare to no glare was easy as 1 2 3.

Any questions, please email me.

? about forum software

Great site for users new to GPS use. I've learned a lot in the last 4 months and probably will continue to do so.

I generally enter a forum by clicking on "unread posts", then pick and chose which topics I'm interested in. When I'm done, I use "mark as read" before exiting. On this forum, the only way I can find "mark as read" is to go to "discussions" from the point where I was.

MapSource for your computer from the update disc

This is for PCs only, sorry MAC.

PLEASE NOTE this is copied and pasted directly from a Garmin tech email, the only change I made was to #5 regarding the UNLOCKING OF MAPS, my unlock code was there and I deleted it. The Unlock code I deleted was the same as on MY.Garmin.com under "MapSource® Unlock", you may want to go get that prior to attempting this.

poi in general

I have downloaded a lot of information from each state and have the following question being new to what the nuvi can do. Will the nuvi identify all poi's in a certain area not with standing where they originate from?

Best Sites for Content

Everyone knows that POI Factory is the best site for POIs and GPS talk. But the denizens of this site know other things too. Can I convince you to share?

My favorite site for audio books is: http://librivox.org/

Why? Well, it's free of course and simply filled with goodness: Capitan Blood anyone?
