GPS That Will Route On Railroad Tracks

I have considered taking my family on a vacation and traveling via Amtrak. Is there any GPS or app that will route via the railroad? I assume that all will try to route via the regular roads. It would be sort of nice if one of them did do routing via the railroad tracks because it would show the next stop(s) on the rail line.

Using Bluethooth With Your GPS

My car radio died, so I bought a new radio that has bluetooth capability. My GPS unit does NOT have bluetooth, but should I get a new GPS; I will get one with bluetooth.

Here is my concern. Normally, you have the car radio on and listen to the music. If the GPS and the radio are paired, I get the feeling that the radio won't play the music, but would only "play" the GPS directions.

Garmin nuvi

I recently purchased a 2012 Dodge Journey with an 8.4A
I would like to interface my Garmin to the 8.4A video screen. My GIG puts out an interface that I am very interested in as I also use a camera on the rear of my trailer. The My GIG C8 unit has RCA inputs for video.

E-Z Passes again

Saw this; quite related to a previous discussion on freeway passes being used to film motorists.

Is the Factory Joke Thread Closed?

Last one 8-30-2013. I can't see a way to post a new joke.

Customized Speed Camera POIs ??

Hi everyone...
Newbie here. I did subscribe and download Speed Camera POIs for my GPS already

I have an old Garmin Nuvi 350, like 5 yrs old at least.
Time to upgrade.....

My problem....
Chicago, IL has unique Speed Camera zones..

Speed cameras at parks will enforce a daily 30-mph speed limit from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.

test two threads

I am testing to see if I can create two threads which look the same - which someone just recently did.

As I recall, I click "Preview" to check what the post looks like and then, if satisfied, click "Submit"

My feeling is that when I click "Submit" I will get the screen that would let me edit that thread but I would not be able to create another thread.

BP Gas Stations POI

Would love to see BP Gas station POI file updated more often. Is there a way one could contribute in updating this file? I have searched around BP's website and even emailed them to obtain location database without any luck. The file has been updated last on February 2013 and many gas stations have closed/moved/opened since then, not to mention it was not full list of stations to begin with.

New Member-Ohio

Hey everyone! Great site and thanks for having me. I own a Nuvi 3790 and have had it now for about 1 1/2 years. I just picked up a Kenwood DNX6190hd receiver with the garmin built in because I travel so much and like the hands free feature.

I love this forum

Anybody asked Google Earth to correct an error?

A cousin is moving to a new address. Tried to find it on Google Earth. It shows the road but with incorrect spelling so nobody could search and find the location.

Garmin would not be able to find it either, except by lat/long.

Voice Selection

Have any of you experienced the voice you've used for a very long time (years) being changed after a weekly update of POI's??? No other updates were made.

I just had that happen with a voice change from Jill to a non-TTS voice. I just reset it but it's never happened before to me.


Garmin express error

Just got a Garmin nüvi® 2557LMT
Went to Garmin site Registered it.
Then started the Garmin express v2.2.21 several different ways and times. Gets about ½ way through and gets the following error message----- Service ‘Garmin Core Update Service’(Garmin Core Update Service) could not be stopped. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to stop system services.

Suggestions Please!

What features are needed by POI factory users?

I am a one man company building a new GPS app for iOS and want to include the ability to import and export both .csv and .gpx files and hopefully with the permission of the administrator, provide a direct link to POI Factory letting the user store their login information on the phone.


Can POI files be removed from Garmin devices?

Newbie as of a few hours ago. I have a Garmin 760 and if I download and install a POI file then decide I do not need it for some reason can it be removed from the 760? Thanks.

Microsoft buying Nokia Devices/Services

Developing Story...


Looks like Microsoft getting licensing to use Nokia patents and "mapping know-how"... Nokia owns and operates separately Navteq... one of the major suppliers of map data to Garmin and a host of other GPSr hardware and app suppliers...
