How do I download the alert sound files? If I try to drag & drop I wind up with an internet shortcut file that launches the page where the file is located. When I click on the file to attempt to save it, it launches Quicktime player and unless I'm willing to buy thier upgrade I can't save the file. Help, any advice would be appreciated.
I tried to update my NUVI 660 to the new 2008 Map version and I encountered a problem.
The update was stopping at about 6%. After trying various things I called GARMIN Support.
The problem turned out to be my local USB connection. My USB cable is connected to my Windows PC via a HUB. GARMIN had me connect the USB cable directly to the PC. The update went just fine.
Sorry if this have been discussed before.
I am a Garmin newbie. I was wondering which GPS units, Garmin or others, support loading of routes created on a PC.
Also what are some of the recommended free or paid software for route creation?
Hi, Just got the Nuvi 680 and I am wondering if these POI's will work on the Laptop GPS as well. I see that they open up in an Excel file format. Do I just enter the Long/Lat and the name and address etc in a Excel file and boot it up to the Nuvi? As you might see, I am new to the Nuvi and DL'ing POI files. any discussion would be a great help.
Just got off the phone with Garmin support trying to register my Kenwood unit made by them and was unsuceesful. Support stated that unit must be registered with Kenwood but they would handle updates. So my unit was purchased on July 18, 2007 with ver8 maps. I wanted to update my maps.
Ms. Poi or Jim:
I have a suggestion: Would it be possible to list the most recent posting first? With some forums or discussions, posting can span days and pages. It would be more convenient to list the most recent posting first and then chronologically backwards. Just a humble suggestion.
I received my free upgrade today from Garmin.....
I have a question about the voice prompts while driving a route, specifically on a long stretch of highway, when no turns (or exits) are to be taken for many miles.
When approaching an upcoming exit on the highway, for example, my unit will announce "In .9 miles stay left" even though I won't be exiting the highway for another, let's say, 20 miles.
Is there a file (1) which contains ALL poi that I can download and install into my Nuvi? Thanks.
I have a Fodors SD card and was wondering if anyone had the language card and wanted to swap them or email the info as an attachment?
Can someone from Chicago please help me out. I traveled to Chicago this weekend. My Garmin 660 told me to exit Lake Shore Drive at lower Wacker Dr. My hotel was on upper Wacker. Once I got on lower Wacker (under upper Wacker) the gpsr lost satellite lock. Before losing lock it said exit on upper Wacker but I didn't have a clue as to how to get from lower Wacker to upper Wacker.
I have a Nuvi 670 with a bean bag mount (I live in
My question is:
The ball joint that fits into the back of the mounting
bracket snaps into place but the swiveling is loose, to the
point that the unit won't stay in the position I set.
Does anyone know a way to tighten or restrict the movement
of the ball joint "after" it snaps into place? I tried
Well, this hasn't been a typical week at POI Factory. Miss poi celebrated her birthday and then had to make an unplanned trip to Portland for a family emergency.
Normally she is the person who reviews the nominations, looks at participation over the last week and decides who to recognize, but today she is on the road and it's up to me.
It's in the workings for Texas to set up speed cameras at three different highway locations. "not to issue tickets, but to see if the highway speed needs adjusting". Also they propose to send letters to those caught speeding advising them they should slow down..........what's this leading too?
I just got the nuvi 350 and don't know what mapoutlines are
This is a free telephone directory for the entire United States that will give you residental, government or business listings. You will be forced to listen to a few short commercials but with the cost of directory assistance now $1.50 for US cellular, Verizon now @ $1.49 per call, & some mobile phone carriers even higher, I think we can all listen for a few seconds to save a few bucks.
While on a road trip from South Carolina to Colorado Springs I encountered a problem on several occasions of lost satellite signal on my nuvi 660. It happened twice in Route 24 from Colorado Springs and Limon Colorado. Both times I was on flat high plains and there was not a cloud in the sky.
Miss poi asked me to put up this week's nominations post. Please post suggestions for who you'd like to see recognized for their participation on the site this week.
just got back from a trip to minneapolis from tulsa.

If you have 2 Nuvi's, what is preventing you from loading the software update on one then doing the same on the other?
I am not suggesting not paying for 2 DVD updates, but I was just curious.
