Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – July 2015

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

Garmin 67lm or Tom Tom go 60

Hi I'm planning on buying new gps unit .I currently have factory garmin indash on 2011 jeep. I mainly want to add speed & red light camera poi also school zones. I'm mainly drive in New York & Pennsylvania. I'm looking at GARMIN 67 lm or Tom Tom go 60. Which has more poi or is easier to install or more programs and better maps? Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Happy Independence Day 2015!

Hope everyone is safe and doesn't ingest or imbibe too much this wonderful weekend. Too much is a general term. It differs per person! grin

I'll be filling my backyard and home full of friends and relatives, and we'll be ingesting and imbibing to surfeit! My bonus is I get to roll into bed. No road time for me. The bad part of the deal is I'll be cleaning up the remnants for a week!

Solar Powered Airplane

Techies, take note!

A new world record for solar powered flight is about to be set. 5+ days from Nagoya, Japan to Barbers Point, Hawaii. Only one person on board - the pilot. All on solar cells and batteries.

Should be landing at Kalaeloa airport at about 12 noon EDT. Best to tune in early.

Anyone interested can watch live at:

Happy Canada Day!

Today, July 1, is Canada's 148th birthday. Another reason for all of my fellow Canucks to celebrate - like we need one!

Canada Day in a small town is a blast - watch a parade in the morning, off to the course for a round of golf in the afternoon, a few weenies on the barbecue for supper, and then fireworks at dusk.

Nobody noticed

Well, a "Leap Second" was just added (at 8 PM EDT) to all the atomic clocks around the world and nobody noticed! Well, maybe the folks that manage the GPS satellites did and the folks that manage the atomic clocks.

2015 Leap Second to be Added Tonight (6/30) at Midnight

As discussed in this earlier post:

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/44006

This leap second addition is unlikely to cause issues with GPS satellites or receivers. It should be noted however that the GLONAS system may be affected briefly at 0:00 hours UTC on 7/1. Older GLONAS receivers are at higher risk:

where are we headed

Going somewhere for business, and pleasure, business first, pleasure the rest of the week.

So on our personal car rental, it's $164 per week (reasonable), with an additional $107 in taxes. I find that rate pretty unreasonable myself.

Based on the tax rate, any guesses as to where we're going?

(hint, a band that just played the last 2 nights in Santa Clara will be here next weekend)

Smileys (fixed)

Greetings,

My PC or The Factory's software seems to have a problem with one Smiley.

There is an icon for the Question Smiley (a question mark inside the yellow circle), but when I try to add this smiley to a message, I don't get the question mark. Instead I get this:

question

which I see as the Confused Smiley followed by a colon.
