A few weeks ago, we recognized him as a prolific POI File maintainer, this week is sort of a continuation on that.

Newbie needs help understanding use of custom POI files

Hi All! This newbie has spent over an hour on the POI-Factory website reading FAQs and discussions but remain unclear about how a custom POI file is used.

One specific scenario that I would find valuable is to be alerted every time there is a rest area 30 miles ahead or to see one by using the "Up Ahead" function.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Happy Independence Day! May America be blessed with eternal years of freedom. Remember our forefathers, their ideology, sacrifices, and actions that made our nation great.

How Long Would You Wait For a Red Light?

My wife and I were on vacation in Golden Colorado a couple of weeks ago and were were on our way to Denver airport to catch an early flight. We stopped for red red light and waited 6 full minutes but it didn't turn green. It was 2 AM and there was absolutely no traffic on the road. I backed up and pulled up to the stop line again thinking I didn't trip the timer.

I Just Had My Picture Took (Google Streetview)

by a Google camera. I was outside weed-whipping, when he drove by. I had my back to him, so no privacy issues. By the way, they must have some high speed cameras, cause he was driving fast. Now, how long before I am immortalized on Google.

silly but economic theory prevails?

That time we got our tire patched at Costco, for whatever reason, the tech replaced the green valve stem cap (part of a kit when they replaced the tires), which is long and round, with a normal one, which is shorter and more angular, i.e. normal.

very bizarre auto AC HVAC recharge experience

This is my first ever contact with auto HVAC. the reason is I've never had a car with any issue so no need.

Anyway my wife's GM SUV has had a hissing sound that cycles, for at least this year.

Last week, I think it was Wed., it was very hot and humid. So when I drove her car to work, it was probably only 70F at most, and the car was dripping water front and rear (rear evap), so good.

Red Light Camera Ticket Questions

For anyone who has gotten a red light camera ticket:

1. Did you ignore the ticket? If yes, what happened?

2. Did you contest the ticket in court? If yes, then what was the trial procedure and the outcome?

Thank you for any replies.
