I am new to this site and to GPS. I recently bought a Gramin nuvi 205 and used it getting to/from Warren Pa. It worked very well, though it didn't take me the way I would have necessarily gone.
Let me start by saying that I am in Montreal, Quebec.
And no, I'm not discussing the basic prompting that the navigator does (which is set to English), but rather the TTS street names . . .
To all my fellow canuks, happy Canada day
This week we are recognizing Simon Ferdman, Wrbelt, and Kioolt.
I can always tell when Summer hits because you guys and gals go into hyper drive sending in files that you think will be useful to others for their summer vacations.
After 1 year and 44 weeks on this site, I have finally been greeted by the message:
"Over the past 26 weeks, you have qualifying activity in 26 week(s)"
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.

I was trying to retrieve a previous post of mine so I went to "recent post" under my account and then selected the tab "My recent posts". The result is a list of topics I have looked at and maybe participated some times ago but they are sorted by the most recent update by anybody so it makes it difficult to locate my own posts.
this is a simple way to down grade your firmware version. in the event you have trouble with the new version, i conducted the experiment on nuvi>255>1490T several times whit no issue's.( 1 create a folder on your computer) name the folder what ever you want ( 2 connect your nuvi to your PC ) ( 3 go to your garmin folder look for a file call XML COPY AND PASTE ONLY,to your new folder.
"Googling" for a comparison between Navteq and Teleatlas map accuracy and completeness seems not to yield much in the way of any recent professional reviews. I am finding mostly blog/forum posts from 2007 and before.

Interesting news item:
The powerful earthquake that struck Baja California and the southwestern United States in April actually moved an entire California border city, NASA radar images show.
Calexico, Calif., near the U.S.-Mexico border, moved as much as 2 1/2 feet (80 cm) south and down into the ground due to the magnitude-7.2 earthquake on April 4.
Here is an editorial article that appeared in the Seattle Times today.
Stumbled on this website that has links to various GPS related software:

Reading the posts here I was lead to belive a DVD of MapSource would be mailed to me if I but asked. I asked and this was my reply:
