I will be staying in the Lakeland area and working in the area from from Federal Way to Olympia, mostly around Ft. Lewis for about three weeks. Is there anything that I should be particularly concerned about? I have updated my map, loaded the latest version of the red light and speed cameras. What am I missing?
GPS-based tracking displays certainly would have had a role to play in preventing the April 11 collision on the tarmac at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, said Bill Voss, former FAA air traffic development director and current president of the Flight Safety Foundation.
GPS navigation systems aren't perfect. Most of them are pretty good, but blind acceptance of their advice can become a traveler's nightmare.
This week we are recognizing Kch50428.
Keith is one of our original members and has been with us for 4 years and 17 weeks.
It is so nice to have him active in the forums again as a regular.
I always miss my original crew and am so happy when they return home to help more people out.
I love ya man!!!!
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Hi there, found this site and thought I would take a chance on some good feedback. Am moving from Tampa, Florida to Just outside of Nashville Tenn with my kids. I have never driven a big truck before and in this case am moving with a 16 footer and my car pulled behind. Needless to say am very concerned. Not so much about highways but am very concerned about stops.
Hello, new member here. Lookin forward to learning new trips and tricks for my garmin.
As an OTR trucker that doesn't have a smart phone...yet, I don't always have internet access.

I have searched for these poi's and saw it mentioned> Has anyone found these locations?

We can now contribute to make changes to Google maps in the US. I'm not sure how Google is going to review/verify the changes. There could be millions of changes in a day. The plus side is they're using map users time and effort for free
In Danville Illinois, the prison is across a small field from our motel. That field had many motion detectors on poles. In our room I booted up my 295w. When it started looking for satellites it would start booting again. It did this over & over that night and in the morning also. As we departed it locked in the satellites just fine. That had never happened before or since.
Last Oct I got the Garmin 465T for 450.00 + 25.00 shiping from Garmin. As a OTR Driver I need a good GPS for my job. I have been with Garmin sence the Street Pilot they have a good rep an a good CS. saying that the 465T is a pice of junk. It takes me. off route on to roads I should not be on. it will not let me go on roads I should on. It will takes me 15-20 miles out of the way per run.
This week we are recognizing Shrifty!!!
Yes as promised, I am tossing this outstanding contributor out to pasture with the rest of you!!!
I really appreciate all that you have been doing to help update some of our old projects that have just been lying around the factory floor;)

Having recently downloaded the POI file "Oregon Campgrounds (434)" I find the majority of the listed sites are RV parks—not campgrounds. There is a difference. Try boondocking in a RV park.These categories should be separated into two files.
I once got a POI download that listed all AM/FM radio stations nearby. Can anyone tell me what it is titled?
I gotta say, the traffic info, at least in the KC area is pretty sketchy, BUT I would really LOVE to see them use that capability to interface with National Weather Service weather data. All weather watches/warnings include GPS coordinates.
If you just downloaded the BofA POI file - Try again.
I forgot to delete the extra column I use for sorting by Zip Code. It came up short a couple of hundred places.
It's complete now and uploads to my Garmin with no error and 10109 locations.
