Locate your friends via gps cell phone. This is something else! Don't take it too serious.

Show off your installation

Thought this might be a good topic and might also provide ideas for others. Show how you mounted your GPS and what it looks like in the car.

Here's my two setups with a Garmin Nuvi 350:

POI on Nuvi 660

I just purchased the Nuvi 660 and really like it. I upgraded from a 540. Has anyone had any problems with the icons displaying on the Nuvi 660? On my 540, as I drive along or reach my POI destination it would show the icon on the map. I noticed my 660 does not. Any help would be appreciated.

Power Drain question on car battery

I have a Garmin C340 and like to leave it plugged into the cig lighter in the car and just turn off the power with the power button. This way I can let the internal battery charge with the key OFF since my cig lighter stays live with the ignition off.

Need ideas for bags to carry GPS and other electronics.

Does anyone use or have good idea for a portable bag to carry an ever growing collection of electronics that I use daily?


Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to say hi and try creating my first POI file. I am using GPS Visualizer's to get the coor. but then need to edit the result. How do validate the CSV file?

ETA extremely over-estimated

I was traveling on a trip home and was 360 miles away when I had the GPS calculate the route home. The initial ETA was 7 hours and 15 minutes away and I ended up making it home in 5 hours and 30 minutes (an hour and a half earlier than expected) I was never traveling more than 5 mph over the speed limit and stayed on the same route the whole way.

Own Route

Does anybody know how to set up your own route on c580? For example if my garmin is telling me to go via I495 and I want to go via I278, is there a way to do that?


EasyGPS vs MapSource

Isn't EasyGPS one way to go around to avoid the I-cannot-get-MapSource-for-free-from-Garmin ordeal?

Nuvi 680 tabs

I have been looking at the Nuvi 680 to replace my 2720, however I can't tell if these new models have the elevation, address, heading, ETA, MPH, ect boxes on the right side of the display. Can anyone tell me if they do? I would hate to lose those.

Thank you

nuvi 260

How about separate forums for the other brands?

I currently have Magellan (2200T) and am wanting a Garmin.

There is a Garmin forum, and a NOT Garmin forum. And that's it.

Garmin 350 Memory Clean

I got the Garmin 350 last week & uploaded it w/ all updates (all cars) & a number of POI files. If I want to delete some of the useless stuff (i.e., cars, help files), how do I delete them?

Thanks in advance, Luke

New gps

Im looking to buy another gps. I have a garmine 330 but would like to get one that will give me trafic report.
I use this in a motor home and would like to have one that would give me the best route to drive a motor home.
They are making them smaller and I like that as well.
I do not need one that has bluetooth.
