What do you think of this new traffic light design which features an hourglass with countdown yellow lights to give the driver a better sense of when, exactly, a traffic light will go red?
Do you remember where you were 47 years ago Monday? President John F. Kennedy's assassination. (Third hour English Class.)
This is great. I've wanted something like this for a long time.
It looks like there are several inexpensive netbooks available right, some even under $100. Would any of these be suitable to load GPS software onto and connect a GPS receiver or are all of these just a waste of money?
A friend of mine asked what are the small lights above or below the traffic signals? Looks like they could be motion sensors or something that EMS could activate by turning light to Green for them.
What do you think of this idea?
A lot of us use coffee shops, hotel open wifi networks while on the road.

I'm ready for road trip, holiday style!!

This week we are recognizing Bakroder for his contribution of Football Stadium files over the last few months. I can imagine that it is very helpful for you sports fans when you are traveling to cities to support your home team.
Thank you so much for all your hard work on these projects. To see the list go to this link: http://www.poi-factory.com/user/237802
Ran across this while doing a news surf this morning.
Okay, this is interesting...
Have your in-dash GPS stolen, then reinstalled by a car dealership....
Heads up. Woot is offering a Motorola GPS for $45. Probably a discontinued item but the price is hard to beat. http://www.woot.com/

The Act Of Remembrance
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.
And may we ever pray
" Lord God of Hosts,

I recently went to Myrtle Beach and we ran into several, unusually slow speed limits, when it did not seem warranted. We figured it was done to generate money for the local police.
Does anyone know of a website that would should the speeds of any particular stretch of highway? My NUVI 350 does not show this info.
