Microsoft S&T / Autoroute import by Andrew Kalinowski
Are there any, other than GPSU, programs or utilities that can import routes from MS Streets & Trips files / Autoroute? I know that GPSU can do that but I'm not a registered user of it. Yes, I know that GPSU trial version can do that (10 points at a time) BUT the licence states that "I may use this version of the software for an unlimited time for evaluation only and I understand that any other...

Carrying a Garmin 12 - creative suggestions needed! by Chris
How can a Garmin 12 be carried if you just want to go for a walk wearing a T-shirt and not wearing a rucksack? I know you can carry it in your hand - but that's a bit of a nuisance. A pocket isn't much good either. I thought of fixing it, in some yet to be determined way, to a hat. But it weighs nine ounces - and would look really silly! So what do you reckon - both sensible and silly...

Ramblings about GPS and relativity... Ref: Hartle, "Gravity: An Introduction to Einstein's General Relativity", Addison Wesley (2003) The difference between rates at which signals are emitted and received at two locations with different gravitational potentials is minute in laboratory circumstances.

Discovery Channel Program by Larry Chisum
Saw a Discovery Channel Program last night Tom Brokaw in Yellowstone. In one sequence they were hunting for a newly discovered waterfall, along with an experienced hiker guy who had been there multiple times before. They were using a paper map, and took several wrong turns before finally finding the waterfall by hearing it. There was no GPSR in evidence. Wouldn't a simple marking on a...

Is there a way to import XL files to the Garmin Mapsource program by Dwayne
I have a question and I'm not sure who to ask so hopefully you can point me in the right direction. I recently noticed that I can save my waypoints from the Garmin Mapsource software as a .txt file and then convert it to an .xls spread sheet. I was wondering is there a way to convert the information back to a recognizable format to be imported back into the Mapsource program. For instance...

Mapsource 5.0 Map Download Problem by Robert Vleugels
Mapsource 5 won't download the same mapset* that I've previously downloaded with Mapsource 4.13 on my GPS V (2.20). Apparently something is taking up some extra memory. So, your mapset may no longer fit. Already reported to Garmin, both beta & production versions. * 19.3 MB North American City Select 4.01 (Athens, Canton, Centerville, Columbus, Mansfield, & Kent - all in Ohio)

Onstar - "The Great Fraud" by Ponderosa Sports

YOU ARE PROBABLY SCREWED UNLESS IT OCCURS IN TOWN UNDER AN ANALOG CELL PHONE TOWER! After buying a new Hummer H2, I find out that Onstar can not even tell me where it is!

GPS Receiver on Window? by Earl Barfield
"Howard McCollister" writes: The GPS unit can be anywhere, as long as the antenna has a clear, unobstructed view of the sky. The unit wouldn't work under the hood, for example, unless you had an external antenna routed to the outside. It wouldn't work under the bonnet because the metal would block the signal. If you're trying to keep the antenna hidden, try mounting it...
