Samsung Galaxy Tab

Does any one know if poi files can be loaded into a Samsung Galaxy Tab that uses Google maps?

Garmin Warranty Service

I had my unit for about 5 weeks when i had to send it back because of a software problem. I called garmin, total time on the phone was at the most 15 minutes, got a rma number and sent it back. The longest wait was for the post office to send it. Looks like garmin recieved my GPS and sent me a new one the next day. Total time was 10 days.

CSV vs GPX files

Newbie question: What is difference between CSV and GPX files? When would I choose one over the other?

posting pictures

Is there a way i can post a picture (small file) in a thread i've started in Garmin talk, so that i can make myself clear? Not certain how else to describe my exact problem.

Pictures from the Past

These pictures are fascinating. They are of an America that we don't really know....real Americana of a bygone era. They are 70+ years old and so beautifully photographed. This is a real treasure.

76 Gas Station POI File

Does anyone know where I can find a 76 gas station CSV or GPX file? I can find the icon but no database file.

Obsolete Data in a POI file

I have only been a member for 2 weeks and have noticed some obsolete data in a couple of POI files (rest areas and McDonalds). What do I do with this information? Inform who with what?

If I were a General Maintainer could I correct the information myself and how would I do that?

Touchscreen won't work

Hi Everyone! 1st time here. Having an issue. I have the Garmin Nuvi 605. I've never had a problem with it, until now. It seems as though the touchscreen has just stopped. I can see the screen. Audio works. It just won't respond to my touch. Any ideas?

Built-In GPS Units

Since so many new cars have the option of having a GPS unit built-in I wonder if we should have a discussion about the pros and cons of these units?
