PERMANENTLY INSTALLED GPS IN GLOVEBOX

I have finally taken photos of my Garmin Nuvi 5000 GPS with backup-camera and I cannot add the photos to my garage.

I will appreciate anyone advising me? As I have cropped the photos to fit the allowance and all I get are the same two I always had

Please HELP ME DO THIS? Thank you, CIPNGAS

It's most likely the resolution you picked for the camera-- probably too fine for uploads.

Instead of trying to adjust the mb size, just use an alternative like www.photobucket.com or similar.

never mind...the three photos are on photobucket but don't know what to do next...thanks anyway...this has given me the blues today...so I will just forget about it...however a Garmin GPS Nuvi 5000 can be permanently installed in the right hand glove box which when Yaris is put in reverse, you have a colorful accurate backup camera...thanks again......

On the page with all the photos, go the bottom, click the box that says to "select all" then go the farthese right button that says to "Generate Html and img code"

When the next page loads, copy the second or third box and paste it here.

Check out this thread that I put together a while back. It has detailed instructions for adding photobucket pictures to a post:

This is how I mounted my GPS...

I used 3 hockey pucks, screwed and glue them together, then applied the suction plate to the 3 pucks. I put my contraption in my cup holder as I do not drink coffee, so its the perfect spot for me.

We should put up a sticky thread in electronics that's just for showing where people have mounted their GPS units in the Yaris.

Would be useful for all those who are looking to get a GPS unit.

I'm impressed.
It's simple, it's easy, it's significantly more stable than just sitting on the dash...

2 thumbs up

HA HA HA! Yes, a Canadian or Northern U.S. American would of come up with this design.
Thanks for all the reviews! I tried using a metal can but I needed a flat surface to mount the mounting plate onto it. The pucks are the perfect size to fit in the cup holders...and I bought them all for a dollar each at the Salvation Army store, then I spray painted them black.

Sorry, to take over your post CIPNGAS! :)
