GPS explained: Position accuracy | Accuracy Values by Garmin Receivers


Note: The following was not something I wrote, but found on the web several years ago. The original site is no longer online, so I’m including it here for preservation. I can’t speak to the accuracy of the information, but it seems very accurate based on my extensive GPS experience. GPS explained: Position accuracy. […]

Creating Custom Dashboards for your Nuvi Page 3


Community Contribution By Boyd Ostroff Page 1, Page 2 SevenFields: the Holy Grail of dashboards? Well personally I don’t think so, but if you follow the GPS forums, you might come to this conclusion! Personally, I prefer simplicity… But regardless of your philosophy, our final example is the SevenFields dashboard, and it builds on everything […]

Creating Custom Dashboards for your Nuvi Page 2


Community Contribution By Boyd Ostroff Back to page 1 The TwoFields dashboard Now we’ll build on what you’ve already learned with a more complete dashboard example. Open the TwoFields_800x480.dshb file in Notepad++. You’ll see that this file has the id “two”. The first new thing you’ll notice is the DashboardColors section. These define the font […]

Creating Custom Dashboards for your Nuvi


Community contributed article By Boyd Ostroff In 2012 Garmin added a new feature to the Nuvi line called “dashboards” — small files containing images and code that change the appearance of the main map screen. In the past, the Nuvi was criticized for its lack of user customization features, and the 2012 models sought to […]

Garmin’s “Known Map Errors” Page


I never would have expected to see Garmin put up a Known Map Errors page. Sometimes, we are notified of errors in our map providers’ data that could present safety concerns. Because your safety is important to us, we have listed all known map errors below. They certainly don’t expect people to review the list […]

TomTom Q1 2012 Results– a play on words


I find reporting on most financial results fairly annoying– people have become good at spinning any piece of data however they would like. So I decided to take a different “look” at TomTom’s Q1 2012 results. I built a little word cloud. I threw out common words you would expect to find in financial results […]

Is TomTom favoring Google over their own POIs?


When the newest version of the TomTom app for iPhone came out recently I noticed some of the items in the navigation menu had been rearranged. The menu order for the ‘Navigate To…’ menu used to look like this: Home –> Favorite –> Address –> Recent Destination –> Point of Interest –> Point on Map […]

Is that a Google MotoNav Headed Down the Road?


There has long been speculation that Google might someday build their own GPS to suction to your own windshield. That speculation was fueled as they started to build their own maps and ditch Tele Atlas and then again when Google released Google Navigation for Android phones. With today’s announcement that Google intends to scoop up […]

Apple’s Version of LineDrive Maps?


As discovered by AppleInsider, a recent patent application from Apple shows they are interested in changing how information is presented on maps. Check out the image below, but doesn’t sound like the same concept as LineDrive Line Maps? Check out that link for details. Don’t get me started on the pitfalls of the US Patent […]
