Garmin Communicator - GPS enabled blog

Diner News and History blog is Garmin Communicator enabled. What this means is, in our posts with a link to a Google map, you'll be able to save that diner's location to your GPS. Jim Steele's blog has a tutorial on the process of sending waypoints to your GPS. Thanks Jim for pointing this out!

For testing your GPS to PC connectivity, go to Garmin's website. Though you'll need to have the browser plug-in installed, GPS connected to your computer and powered on. This process worked well, though we did encounter an issue in the waypoint naming during some of our tests.

While we include addresses and GPS coordinates in our posts, we can't guarantee their accuracy. Use of such data is at your own risk.
