    When you say "db's" I assume you mean databases. Well, I didn't lose the addresses list. They're all there.

    Address book is in the Navi/User folder, your RM/User folder was corrupted.

    Thanks,

    I imported the redlight cameras to the POI folder and drove around for 2 days with announcements of cameras 3 and 4 blocks away not even on my street. LOL So tonight I am trying the Alert folder and hoping that's the one I want.

    I also imported a Weight Station file and set the view distance to "state level" so now when I compare routes I can see at a glance which route has a scale or not. Pretty sweet i think! Hey are you working on getting Radio station info on there somehow?

    RM cannot be held accountable for POI's that are imported such as the POI-Factory. They normally grab Lat/Long's that are somewhat close and not the actual. I have seen railway crossings pop up even though they are about .5 miles away.

    The ones I posted to that site are accurate since when building them the ones that helped me on them actually drill down to the actual site and Lat/Long.

    So just be aware that any imported POI may/may not be accurate and RM cannot be help accountable for their inaccuracies.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Well... Thanks but that sucks.

    I was going to ask if any USB mini charger would work as I bought a 6' USB cable with simple power plug for another use and was hoping I could use it for the RM730 as well...

    Or just release the App to run on our own hardware... Then no need for multiple units.

    Just been catching up on the thread... What's this about SD cards? I am not currently using an SD Card for anything that I am aware of...
    Connected it to the Dock Program once the last time I was home and that's all I've done with the TND730 since I got it.

    Should I be doing something more? Thanks.

    Also: note to programmers at RM

    Mac User here, might be a good idea to register as a developer with Apple. When I went to the RM Site to DL the Dock program it questioned the download from an unregistered third party. Yes, I had the setting to not trust unregistered programs or whatever the wording is.

    I went ahead to download the Dock but it did cause me to pause and think if I should.

    Just my two cents worth.

    Only the x10 and the x20's need the SD Card for the maps. The 730 has 8Gb internal storage.

    Look at Post 3138 and check your Navi/Log files.

    Thanks,
    Mark
