The latest idiot...
A Quebec woman stranded for three days on a snowy New Brunswick logging road after her GPS led her astray says she expected to be stuck until spring.
The European system that augments GPS signals to make them more accurate is now suitable for use in aviation, the European Commission says.
Egnos, the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service, can tell planes and helicopters where they are to within a couple of metres.
On a recent trip along a stretch of highway 9 in Ontario,my 250W started recalculating about every 1or2 kilometers west of Orangeville . It did it for about 10kms. then stops and everything is fine.There is a very large micro wave tower in the area just off the road,possible? Anyone with any ideas.
I came across this item: http://www.meritline.com/super-mini-cigarette-lighter-gps-bl...
1. Does this thing actually work?
2. Who would really buy this thing?
3. Is it even legal?
Rath here, just checking in and saying hi! New to this GPS stuff and POI's.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Opened Google Earth (not Google Maps) today and I thought something was wrong. But nope, it's a change.
You know that Funky location indicator that was hard to see, especially in urban areas?
Well, now there's a bright red X in a bright red box. Hard to miss. Guess they got too many complaints about it being hard to see!
This week we are recognizing Rettollcapt and Bear007.
Rettollcapt is working on producing Fly Shop files for all of us fishermen and women. He even made a really nice icon for them. Great job!!!!
Bear007 has been working on the Grainger project. It is nice to have some of these big companies finished and up in just one file.
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.
MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI
Over a quarter million strong and growing...
When I joined this family, I was the 14,984th member (that was 3 years and 43 weeks ago). This family has now grown, to over a quarter of a million strong.
I take my hat off to MaryAnn and Jonathan for all their efforts in running "the best" POI site on the internet.
Keep up the good work!!!
I bought a different gps since I wasn't happy with the last one, so I returned it. Now I need to find out how i can load my poi purchased to this one
Is there a POI file for US Post Offices?
How about just Tennessee?
I have a Nuvi 750 which works perfectly fine, but have been considering making an upgrade, especially after seeing the current offerings from Garmin and even Tom Tom (been a long time Garmin user but that 5" display from Tom Tom really caught my eye).
This week our contributor is Alandb;)
Looks like you just passed your two year anniversary here at the factory and are still plugging away being helpful in the forums. It is always nice to see you posting. Thanks again.
I am always looking for Civil War Sites. Has anyone developed a POI for that?
I would like to extend my thanks to Mary Ann and all of the others that volunteer their time and knowledge to make this site a success. The data here takes a lot of effort from all to keep it current and as diversified as it is. Sometimes I think we just expect the data to be up to date and don't realize the hours behind the maintenance. Once again thanks to all that contribute.
What a shame God Rush Alaska 1st season ended and old man Jack didn’t get killed in the Glory Hole, maybe next season…
Tonight, I was watching my unit find the satellites and watching the accuracy change. The best i got was 12 foot. I was wondering, what is the best accuracy these units can achieve with good reception? Also was watching the elevation for about an hour in a stationary position and watched it continually decrease, about a foot every 5 minutes or so till it finally stopped.
Thought this was interesting. They hit the nail on the head about Chicago. This is why I love the speed limit display on my Nuvi, it has saved me from a ticket several times!!!
I have tried NAD27 and NAD83 and he WGS datums. My info does not match up on the Google Maps imported in Mapsource.
I am trying to convert my Garmin Mapsource to fit the POI custom coords. data so I can add new Speed Cameras. I had had the Mapsource program set to UTM's and NAD 27 at one time but cannot seem to get it to be in line with the POI data.
Thanks in Advance.
