POI Factory: Layout Adjustments for Mobile

Today we're implementing a few website layout adjustments to better support mobile screen sizes.

If you're viewing the site with a smaller screen, you'll find the layout now adjusts to fit your screen width. Most noticeably, the second column is "pushed down" below the main column as the screen becomes smaller.

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.

How to find security video cameras

I need to find info on how to find recording cameras. I have heard that many cameras are recording at traffic lights. I am in need of a way to prove my whereabouts. I thought my Nuvi would have lots of GPS info but it only goes back a few days unless I am doing it wrong. I thought perhaps my computer history and tracphone info but it gives just a little info.

Wallmart is it true

Recently I had a service dog and couldn't find a hotel so I slept at Wallmart is it true Wallmarts you can sleep in overnight? I was desperate one night and Sheetz let me sleep in their lot. I know that hotels have to allow service dogs but they say no handicapped rooms available. Also I tried to find rest stops but many closed at 5 pm.

Internet Scams - USPS

It happened to me today. I thought I was an informed internet user. I may still be, but I was completely fooled and lucky to escape with my wallet unharmed.

Repair onboard Toyota Avalon GPS

Hi,

Does anyone know where to go in the greater Chicago area to have my onboard Toyota Avalon GPS fixed?

Please don't suggest the Toyota dealer. Been there and the only advice they offer is to replace the entire unit at thousands of dollars and I know the problem is with the toggle switch not making good contact.

Thanks,
John

Must you always stop immediately for a cop?

A woman driving alone at night does what she's been advised to do during an attempted police stop and drives one mile to a lit store parking lot before stopping. The officer charges her with resisting arrest and handcuffs her. Charges have since been dropped, but welcome to the newest Internet traffic enforcement kerfluffle:

What?!? Driver fined $250 for putting on lip balm

Let's see... First it was a guy eating a burger... Now this.

Ordinance in Nevada allows cops to ticket distracted driver

One state trooper says sometimes he even sees men shaving while driving

I guess next we'll get tickets for breathing while driving!
