Download of files?????

I tried down loading gpx files in firefox that I have successfully downloaded before. Some down loaded as normal. Others just open in the browser screen. Is there a fix or do I need to change browsers?

MTP vs. MS mode

I had not noticed until today, but both my 2455 and 2595 give me a visual indication of the fact that they are in MS mode.

Speed & Redlight Camera Updates

Heads up folks. Despite the label saying the redlight & speed cameras are still for 9/11/2013, they really have been updated to 9/18/2013.

No problem, but you can download them now.

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
video screen. AS I ALREADY HAVE TWO GARMIN NUVI UNITS I DO NOT WISH TO PURCHASE THROUGH DODGE THEIR SOFTWARE UPGRADE.
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.
