Garmin/GPS mod thread:

I have been interested in GPS technology for quite a while now, and have had some experiences with different devices, all of which have been Garmin Streetpilots.

I really like the style and design of the Street Pilot, and have finally upgraded to the mother of all Street Pilots... The Garmin 7200.

This thing is awesome. Massive 7" touch screen, options to add a video source and audio out (goes nicely with my Dice Mediabridge). Tons of options and features, even some the new ones don't have.

I will be buying the GXM 30 XM Antenna soon, and getting XM Navtraffic and weather for the unit, but not the full subscription.

Anyway, the point of this thread was to see if anyone has any interesting, useful or gotta have POI databases, and other mods for their Garmins, or other GPS devices. I plan on doing a splash screen upgrade using the xImage thing they offer (when I can find a PC).

I have already installed the following POI databases:
-Trapster (all of US)
-BMW Dealers (All of US)
-Starbucks (All)
-NOAA locations and frequencies (All)
-Sheetz gas stations (all)
-All School Zones

I will be using the video input for a thermal camera up front, and a back up camera in the rear.

What mods have you done? Any other databases out there I am missing. I have been on POI database.org or whatever the main one is, and got a few from them, but most were things like walmart, or harley dealers.

Any awesome splash screens available? Extra voices you can post?

I can attach some of the databases or locations where I got them if anyone is interested.

This may not be your bag, but I have "beerme" poi. For the most part it contains breweries or places where you can get craft or micro beers.
