Freeing up space

In the past I have removed voices, vehicles,and help files. Am looking at the text files but not sure which one is the English. Also looking at the keyboard files same question. Any other suggestions to free up space??

Tint Violation

I got 2 tickets for my 2 front windows in NYC. I have Florida License and Registration.

Any ideas to defeat it?

Thanks in advance.

GPX Proximity Alerts Using EPE

When setting alerts in EPE using the proximity "replace all" method, do I need to do this each time the gpx file is revised?

POI's on a SP2720

I am a noobie at POI's on my Streetpilot 2720. I use my 2720 on a Harley Davidson motorcycle, and want to download all of the Harely dealerships. When I try to download the US and Canada dealerships, only some show up in my favorites, not in Custom POI's. I can also find them when I go to Where To on the first screen, then extras, then custom poi's.

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI

Intro level GPS...starting over...

Looks like I need to replace my Nuvi 200W.

What is a comparable entry level unit that is NOT a Garmin?

All I need is a basic unit that gets me from point A to the address I input...nothing special.


the Highest Art Form yet: Traveling with custom POIs in your GPS

Hello All,

See the map of America's Blues Highway:

"God said, 'Out on highway 61!'" in Bob Dylan's lyrical interpretation of the Old Testament story of God testing Abraham's devotion. Abraham had asked God , "Where do you want this KILLING done?"

"If you find a fork in the road, pick it up." Y. Bera.

Smart database

It seems that enactment of additional laws and aggressive enforcement of same does not necessarily provide for a safer driving environment. For instance, reference this report: with regards to the effect of some new legislation.

Flying J / Pilot Travel Plazas POI Files

Why don't the Flying J/Pilot Travel Plaza POI's down load on my Garmin 660.

Uniden Home Patrol Scanner

Thought some of you might find this interesting. Uniden has just released a new type of scanner radio called HomePatrol. What's unique about this is it's not only capable of receiving all of the popular trunked radio systems used by fire, police, rescue, etc; BUT, it can be programmed for the area you are in simply by entering your zip code.

Some cheap GPSr's at Costco with lifetime maps

Too many to list, but my favorite is the TomTom XXL 550 TM with lifetime traffic and maps for $170 AIR.

There's also a nuvi 255 with lifetime maps for $120 which puts it about $35 more than Amazon (which doesn't throw in lifetime maps . . .).

How 'Bout Them Rangers!?!

For the first time in forever, the Texas Rangers are in the Pennant Race and one game from the World Series to boot!

Of course that one game is a pretty big stumbling block when the other team is the NY Yankees, but maybe we can pull it off.

Go Rangers!
