Mexican road maps are made in Mexico by Guía Roji


In the USA or Canada it is easy to find good, up-to-date road maps of those countries, but this is not true of Mexico. All the road maps of Mexico that I have seen for sale in the USA are inadequate, inaccurate and out of date. By far the best Mexican road maps are made in Mexico by Guía Roji. They make a huge variety of maps -- country, state and city maps as well as an atlas which I use.

Windshield mounts illegal in 28 states?
In a surprising (and questionable) bit of gumshoe work, a POI Factory contributor has concluded that windshield mounts are illegal in 28 states and six Canadian provinces.

What is Garmin BaseCamp?
BaseCamp is a program that can be used to create routes and waypoints, send these to your GPS, and receive tracklogs (containing the tracks you have followed). Main uses are that you can prepare and analyze routes on your computer instead of the small GPS screen and organize your planned routes.

Nice tutorial on how to use Garmin BaseCamp software

The National Bike Registry tells us that thousands of bikes are stolen every day in the United States alone, estimating a cost of around US$200 million per year. A stolen bike can take hundreds or thousands of dollars out of your pocket, leave you without a means of transit and turn into a frustrating, angering experience. The SpyBike Covert Bicycle GPS Tracker protects you from theft by tracking down your bike.

Apple signed TomTom for mapping services, and is apparently jettisoning Google Maps, to set up a potential collision between the two industry giants. The deal between the media giant and TomTom came after Apple rolled out mapping options for its new operating system at a conference in San Francisco.

GPS-enabled app helps the blind take the bus

Like the rest of us, the blind can use speaking navigation apps to find their way
around the city. A new Android application developed at Spain’s Universitat
Autònoma de Barcelona, however, is designed specifically to help blind people get
to their destination by bus. Appropriately named OnTheBus, the app could also be
used by the deaf, the cognitively-impaired, or anyone else.

Alternative battery for Garmin nuvi 205W
Hi I am an Australian in Vietnam and my Garmin nuvi 205W battery went down. As you can imagine you can not buy a Garmin battery here so I did some researching and found no alternatives on the net. I took the battery out and went looking at the mobile phone shops in town. Found that the Nokia BL-5J is a perfect match. It fits the Nokia 5230 / 5800 / C3-00 / N900 / X6 it has 1320mha and 3.7v. Exact same size and only cost US $3 and re soldering the contacts on the new battery was done for free in the store. Works like a charm. I hope this helps some else out in the future.


The video shows how to re soldering the contacts on the new Nokia BL-5J battery.

TomTom Goes Large With a 6-Inch-Screen VIA 1605TM GPS
Still not convinced smartphones are as good as GPS devices? You're not alone. The VIA 1605TM features the largest screen TomTom has ever used for a GPS device: 6 inches—and it's sharp.

How to Buy a GPS
It's a great time to buy a GPS. The category has matured, and competition from nav-equipped smartphones has helped drive prices way, way down. As a result, you can get a capable stand-alone GPS that can do much more than just help you find your way, for a lot less than you would have paid just last year.

The 10 Best GPS Devices
The death of the dedicated GPS device has been greatly exaggerated. Sure, today's mobile devices integrate talented—and sometimes free—navigation apps, but not everyone wants to use a phone or a huge tablet for driving directions. With a standalone GPS, you can just leave it in the car and forget about it, until, of course, you're lost in an unfamiliar place. Or you're on a road trip, it's 1AM, and you're desperately searching for the nearest Taco Bell. Or you want to avoid sitting in an hour of turnpike traffic.

How to Find the Right GPS App for Your Phone
These days, nearly all cell phones on the market now include some sort of GPS capability. That's a remarkable change. Just a few years ago, standalone GPS devices, which you stick on your windshield with a suction cup, were in the spotlight. These devices were a boon for anyone sick of getting lost, using paper maps, or printing out MapQuest directions, all of which were driving distractions and potential safety risks.
