  • Corrected as in i can now login, but still my two last topics remain deleted. (
  • Heh nice thinking! Maybe i could convince someone to rade it for a playstation 3 gaming console! :) But seriously there are cases where this happens. In PC graphics card there is this company EVGA that had a plan where you could trade-in a card for…
  • What is the POI format supported by MIO? You are using a MIO unit right? Or maybe is the format you create universal and can be used interchangeably no matter what unit you possess? Thanx for describing the steps in detail, i appreciate you effor…
  • Which tools are you talking about, cause i cant seem to find them.
  • Prices on GPS'es can really vary quite a lot between different vendors and with one-day sales, etc. Personally, after I make a purchase I try not to "look back". :D Heh, that's probably the best way to look at it! Couple of quick questions. -I …
  • Wow 350USD (250EUR)? I just got it for 350 Euros, did i get robbed? And i did that after hard negotiation for the price to drop from 395! Anyway i just thought that the price difference might be some indication of a colorado perseverance didnt thin…
  • Seems like we are talking in circles about Oregon vs Colorado. I can't contribute much more to that. But getting back to this issue, I have learned a little more about extracting shapefiles from .img files. So anyway i converted to .mp but GPSMaped…
  • Sounds like if you buy the Oregon and are happy with it, you would wonder that anyway... That's exactly right my friend, cause my mind is built that way. And since i cant test them both to failure, i guess i'll have to listen to people with experie…
  • The internal hardware is different. The Colorado has been plagued with hardware and software issues which have largely gone unaddressed. The Oregon uses different hardware (and a different GPS chipset) and is much more stable and accurate. Is this t…
  • I would say the reaction to the Oregon has been more positive than the Colorado. Garmin is issuing frequent updates and adding features to the Oregon but not the Colorado. What do you mean by that? I'm ready to make the purchase and it's down to …
  • Yep just realized that later. So anyway i converted to .mp but GPSMapedit doesnt translate the MAP as well as mapsource does. Here are some pictures to show you what i mean. Also is there a way to extract a specific mapset from inside an .img l…
  • A. Garmin .img files generally work on any Garmin unit, although they now have a new format which only works on the Oregon, Colorado and Nuvi 500. You are wrong to assume you can install the same map on any device though, depending on the map. Most …
  • Thanx for your repliew guys, i will definitely be getting a handheld device since it seems to be important and it distinguishes itslef from auto-gps. The question now is which one will be bestter suited for my needs. A) Well first of all I asked ab…
  • Thanx for your reply, now please allow me to make some aditional and more specific questions. A)What types of maps can you load? Are they the same with the in-Car GPS? B)What format of input coordinates are supported? Can you specify projections f…
  • Well my question is mostly, what do handheld GPS units have to offer in comparison to the in-CAR GPS? Sorry i can't make it any more precise. These are some units i'm looking into but i dont know why they are more expensive and if they're differen…
  • Ok guys lets take it from the beginning and put our personal preferences aside. Let me address some general questions that can be answered in a subjective matter. 1)First of all, how do maps differ for each GPS unit of any individual brand? For exa…
  • Your highways must be different than mine. :) Oh right you must be a US citizen where the road system is much more complex and dynamic, sorry! Removing any unnecessary distractions from the map makes it easier and faster to process where you need…
  • But... While you are driving down the road at 65mph and have a split second to look at the display... you want to get the most important information as quickly as possible without clutter and distraction. Well if you're going 65mph you're probably o…
  • Well i'm sure that newer models have added this features since there's no doubt that my garmin is ancient, but still i dont like the way they look. I mean take alook at mios and navigons interface in comparison with garmins and tell me that garmin's…
  • Thanx for your reply.Yes i also look forward to these guys telling me what they think. On the other hand i remember from way back then, when i had search a bit of a gpx format. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPX_(data_transfer) Supposedly it uses a…
  • Yep i'm curious enough guys, so i'm determined to look this one through the end. That's useful information indeed, so if i'm getting this right, the GPS as a system cant provide accuracies better than 5 meters without any means of corrections. So ad…
  • Well the reason i ask is cause i tried just for the fun of it, to draft the perimeter of a land parcel and the result was ridiculous. I really dont see why acquiring a solution for this specific task (survey) should cost so much money. I mean how i…
  • No to everything?Not even a way to extract information?
  • Isn't there any way to upgrade the firmware in order to have such function? Also is there any software that acts like a manager so you can import/export data in and out the GPS?Like POI stats like mean/max time-speed and stuff?
  • Yeap that's what i thought but that's not practical,because if you add more than one then it seems that it disregards al except the last,one. As you said i can add them one by one,considering i have saved them in favorites,which is what i do,but it…
