Official U.S. Government information about the Global Positioning System (GPS) and related topics
This week we are recognizing Camerabob for his work on the IHOP file.
Camerabob took over the IHOP file a few weeks ago and has been busy bringing it up-to-date. The new file carries forward many corrected coordinates from the old file and also has other nice features, like notations for the restaurants that are open 24 hours.
New... 1000 Mark hit!
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

The current thread sorting scheme is to show first records of the thread first. That makes for a very bad experience. Some of the threads are many pages long. Getting to the current revelent data is a pain.
I had been contemplating whether to post an article on the growing "illegality" of filming police for a while. While it is not really GPS related, many instances seem traffic related and we have had a spat of posts concerning "privacy". These have included OnStar recording your driving and clandestine installation of GPS devise on a person's car.
Jamming of global positioning signals (GPS) during Europe's largest military exercise has been suspended, following complaints from fishermen.
I am noticing a lot of users of this site with Contributor of the Week badges by their names. I'm sure they can't all be contributor of the week for this past week. Are those badges staying with the user after they win it for good? Is this something new?
This is one of those weeks where it's hard to narrow the field and select just one or two people to recognize, so I've decided to do something a little different.
This week, I'm going to shine a spotlight on a discussion topic that I particularly enjoyed and recognize everyone who's contributed to the thread thus far.
The post I've selected is "Rejuvenate a Nuvi Battery?":
to all my fellow canuks
I just ran across an old Time magazine article I had saved. While it has nothing directly to do with Automated Traffic Enforcement, it occurred to me that it would make good reading for city councils and/or police departments considering what leeway should be given to offenses caught on cameras - particularly turning right on red.
State highway officials are using their public offices to lend credibility to ... the Traffic Safety Coalition
Now it's mandatory - GPS capabilities for cell phones by 2018.
This will bring the "Big Brother is watching" paranoids out screaming!
