Interesting web sites

My cousin sent me this site. http://www.airventure.org/

He is a small plane pilot and said he upgraded his handheld gps on here.

I got to looking at some of the iteresting info on the site and thought I would share. Pilots aren't the only ones interested in having fun!

Problem with GPS's?

I'm looking to buy my first GPS, and have an idea what i want, it's between Garmin, TomTom, Magellan. I talked to a salesperson at Radio Shack. And was told there is a problem with the touch pad on all of them. And he suggested I buy the extended warranty. said problems show after about a year of use. Anyone know about this, or is he just pushing their warranty?

MAGELLAN HELP !!! - sound files

Can anyone help me? I was able to transfer the Redlight Camera csv file to a magellan file .mgl via the Magellan software however I don't know how to get the sound poi for a redlight camera on there. I named the mp3 file the same as the redlight camera file but when I attempt to transfer it to a Magellan file it needs longitude and lattitude coordinates...does anyone know if this can be done?

Download POIs based on Geography

Is there a possibility that the Pois could be cross indexed by geography? For example, I'm going on a trip to Alaska and Western Canada. It would be great to download all Pois on file for this geography.

The other option, is to go through each of the many, many files and see which I would like for this specific trip.

WAAS/EGNOS

We are touring New England soon. In the UK we do not have WAAS/EGNOS enabled, for the states would it be better to have in on. We have a 670 and will be using it via the cig lighter connection so battery life should not be a problem.

lets have some fun

in the early days of this room we talked about such things as gps scuba diving and gps sky diving. now every one seems so serious. come on lets put some humor into gps

Use WAAS or not?

I have a Nuvi 350. I travel mostly in semi-rural areas and small communitites of under 100,000, very infrequently in urban canyons. I notice the Nuvi 350 has the option of WAAS on or off. I realize the <3 meters accuracy possible with WAAS, but if I m not calling in artillery shots, do I need to consume the extra battery power that WAAS "ON" would use?
