How do businesses submit for built in POIs?

I was searching the internal POI file on my 1490T for a few local restaurants that I have already added manually. I did this so I could use the Feedback feature built into the unit.

Nuvi 2595LMT, Nuvi 1490T, Nuvi 260, GPSMAP 195

Escort Passport SC55

Does anyone use conjunction with 9500 X50?

To my knowledge, technically loading RLC & speedcam database to the unit like what we do in here. Not sure how accurate it as unless someone comes with feedback.

Thanks in advance.

My Garmin, all of a sudden goes off!, sometimes it comes back on, but when it does, no sound, I then need to reset it 10 sec, voice comes back on, (most of the time),

Ipad 2 GPS capabilities

Is anyone planning to give the Ipad 2 with GPS a try? I am wondering how it compares with my Garmin. I think it would be nice for the passenger/navigator to use in 3G mode to switch back and forth between the Internet and GPS to do research on POI's along the way.

WooHoo! My account status just changed to 3 years and 52 weeks. Guess that means I'm just minutes shy of membership in the Four Year Club.

GPS disruptions heading our way?

A new high-speed wireless network given preliminary approval for installation nationwide could cause severe disruptions to GPS signals, rendering everything from car-navigation systems to jet-flight controls useless.

Hi guys, I recently purchased a Garmin GPS and looking forward to participating in the group!

POI update question

I updated an existing POI file (Cactus_League_Baseball_Parks.csv) and submitted it via the Upload and share a CSV link.
The file never got posted and it's been around 5 or 6 days. It wasn't my file to begin with but was 2 years old and needed an update.
Was I wrong to update someone else's file?

Did you throw away that that old road map?

Do you have a factory-installed new vehicle GPS?

I've been looking at new cars lately. Many of them have built-in GPS's as an option. Can the brand be specified, or are they subcontracted by the vehicle manufacturer? Are the map and red light/speed updates free?
