After that it will stay on forever until you choose another POI. I left it like that and almost never use it for searching other POIs.

Is there a way to just make sure those are always on the map regardless of anything else? I don't want them to disappear just because I was looking for restaurants earlier.

Would these be a good option?

Dual Layer 5 Pack for $13
It is different on every car. When the 2009.1 update was out, I tried Sony, TDK, Verbatim and Phillips dual layer DVD's but none of them worked. I've read that it has a lot to do with the writer as well. Most laptop DVD writers may not be good enough even if they offer dual layer support. I tried a Pioneer and a Sony writer, both from Microcenter and neither were helpful. I was able to return all the DVD's as well as both the writers back at Microcenter b/c I couldn't get them to work. One fellow member here was kind enough to send me a tested dual layer disk that seemed to work fine for one day and then it quit on me too.

Finally the modified Bigboy version that fit on a single layer DVD worked on my very first attempt using the burner on my laptop.

Seems to be more burner/burner software related than specific to a particular brand of DVD. I was able to burn the 2009.1 w/POI on a single layer Memorex DVD-R (8x) and it works fine.

There are tons of posts in the Navigation disk 2009.1 thread on types of DVDs and what worked for ppl. Check that out.

It's burner related, not really the type on DL DVD. I'm using a cheap DL and it work fine after switching my burner.

You'd think there was a new Nintendo game coming out with the anticipation comments here.

I would be willing to take donations and get the disc to create a torrent if no one else gets a torrent up, I guess we can try making a list to get it as cheap as possible??

Ideas?
