Navigon vs. Scout vs. TomTom: iPhone turn-by-turn navigation app shootout! Garmin's Navigon, Telenav's Scout, and TomTom are all excellent GPS turn-by-turn navigation apps available for the iPhone, and all handle navigation, especially the bells and whistles surrounding it, differently. Since turn-by-turn GPS navigation apps are among the few that have maintained higher price points in the app store, so it's not financial viable to simply buy them all and figure out which one works best for you. That's where iMore comes in! We've loaded them up, driven around, and figured out who offers the best all-in-one maps and voice navigation package, and more importantly, which one is best for you! Note: We will be using the U.S. versions of all three apps but all three have many different offerings across several countries.

My problem with Google Maps is that it doesn't save locations, you have to enter in the address all over again (unless signing in helps this problem). I love how in Apple Maps, it saves the most recent ones. This really helps if I'm wanting to find directions to the same place, but from a different location at a different time. Also, explain this quote about Apple Maps "When you get directions, it often assumes which route you want rather than asking, and the choices aren't great in general." In Apple Maps, you're usually given 3 choices, and you get to choose before it starts the route. I do love how in Google Maps, you have the option to avoid highways and/or avoid tolls.

Offline maps with custom POIs for iPod Touch/iPhone? - offlinemaps iphone ipodtouch Offline maps for the iPod Touch/iPhone, and custom points of interest (POIs). Is there any software that can do this? I'm looking for a piece of software, or some hack for existing software, that will let me 1) view offline maps stored locally on my jailbroken iPod Touch, and 2) load several hundred custom points of interest (POIs). Added level of difficulty: I need to be able to see all of my POIs at once (as simultaneously displayed, clickable map pins) and I have some additional data I'd like to store (latitude, longitude, name, description). The reason I need this functionality is that I want to be able to pull up my current location when I don't have an internet connection, and see which of my POIs I'm near.
The Garmin handheld GPS comparison chart below shows all current Garmin backcountry and marine handhelds (in alphabetical order) that include a high-sensitivity chipset. I do not recommend any units without such chipsets for backcountry use. Links go to my Garmin handheld GPS review/resource pages for each model except where I’ve yet to post those; in that case the links go to the Garmin product page. Features in the headers are explained below the chart, while recently discontinued models are shown on a separate page. Garmin handheld GPS comparison chart | GPS Tracklog
GPS for geocachers | GPS Tracklog GPS for geocaching! Geocaching is an extremely popular sport, and I’d venture to say that over 99% of geocachers use a GPS.
Your Garmin car GPS comes with millions of points-of-interest (POIs) installed, including restaurants, gas stations, businesses, tourist destinations and much more. However, many users like to add custom POIs to their GPS devices. These include speed trap and traffic light camera POIs, custom road tours, WiFi hotspots, and more (see links below). Here's how to add custom POI data to your Garmin car GPS. Difficulty: Average How to Load Custom POIs Into a Garmin Car GPS - Custom POIs

As an important add-on feature our app allows users to import their own favorite POIs from free sources on the internet like http://maparadar.com/, http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/, http://www.poiplaza.com/, http://www.poihandler.com/ and many other sites. A POI (Point of Interest) is a dataset containing GPS coordinates that represents interesting and important locations in navigation applications. The most popular POI categories are for example, speed cameras, radars, accommodation locations, restaurants, petrol stations, parking lots, wifi hotspots, attractions, etc. This way you can plan routes to POIs, or be warned by the app when passing by a POI.

Garmin Oregon Wiki - Waypoints and POIs W1.) I've heard the Garmin Oregon supports Waypoints, POIs and Geocaches. How are they different on the Oregon? Waypoints probably don't need any further discussion, they work like waypoints do in just about every other GPS. People familiar with newer Garmin products will also understand POIs (Points of Interest).
A Review Of The Garmin Oregon 450t GPS For Field Work: Part I A few weeks ago, I did a post called “In Search Of The Perfect Fieldwork GPS”, a list of the features I’d like to see in a handheld GPS unit designed for serious fieldwork and mapping. The Magellan Triton 2000 GPS unit, which I reviewed last year, had some but not all of these features, and while it’s a decent GPS it’s just not good enough for fieldwork. Recently, Garmin was nice enough to send me one of the latest models in their Oregon line of GPS units, the Oregon 450t, for review: This post will look at the basic hardware and GPS performance of this unit, comparing it with the Magellan Triton 2000 and my old-school Garmin 60Cx. Tomorrow’s post will be a review (rant?) of the Oregon’s touchscreen interface.
Still Looking For A Good Fieldwork Handheld GPS: A Review Of The Garmin 62s Part I A little over a year ago, I posted my wish list of features for a GPS that would be useful for navigating and recording information for field work. A few months later, I reviewed the Garmin Oregon 450t, and while there were things I liked about it, overall I found it less than ideal for that purpose. About half-a-year ago, I posted on why I thought that Android represented the future of handheld GPS units, over those with custom proprietary interfaces.
POI Loader Help | Garmin Advanced users can create their own .csv and .gpx data files that include Custom POI lists or TourGuide files on compatible Garmin devices*. POI Loader loads all .csv and .gpx data files saved in a particular directory. When creating or downloading Custom POI data files, it is recommended that you save all the data files you want to upload to your device in the same directory. POI Loader determines whether or not a file contains speed and proximity alert points based on specific criteria.
