new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk

 

Another area 51 to investigate.

We were so successful in the Tampa location that I’m posting a new one for those who enjoyed deciphering the last one.

Let me do a little setup to explain how I came about this new location.

A couple friends of ours cruising on their motor home left the Tampa bay area in late October headed for California and meandering through various states.

Flashing lights to warn others about the police

Has this died out or am I wrong? I rarely see that people (in the metropolitan Seattle area) flash their lights to warn others that the police are around.

Share to let us know whether you do this or something else. This is not limted to only those people in the Seattle area. Thanks. I am curious to see your comments.

Is there an Area 51 in your neighborhood?

Ever since moving to Tampa in 1984 we noticed this strange building about a mile from home, why do I call it strange?

A note of thanks

Just a quick note of thanks to all involved for this website and the files available.

There's a lot of work here and I for one appreciate it.

I mainly use the Trucker related files, but I've recommended this site to dozens of other people, and they're all as amazed as I am.

Thanks again, and Merry Christmas to everyone.

People That Use GPS For Work

I am just wondering if anybody here uses GPS for their work? Obviously, anybody who drives a vehicle has the potential to use a vehicle navigator, but I am thinking beyond that. For example, is there anybody here that is involved in GIS or surveying? I have seen work crews in my area using professional GPS units and I have thought that it might be interesting to learn a bit more about that.

anyone here from the Wash DC metro area?

Hi smile

What make GPS comes in the worlds most expensive car?

That would be a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport at $2,580,000.00.

Well from the Road Test in the January 2011 Motor Trend I quote:

"There's no navigation in the $2.6 million Super Sport, not even an option. Bugatti flacks admitted that adding a nav system worthy of the Veyron would be too expensive for such a low volume vehicle, and recommend Garmin or TomTom units. Seriously? Yup." smile

Crossing Sign Gives Pedestrians the Finger

It looks like this is giving the finger to the pedestrians, but I have to wonder if the traffic department is giving the finger to the motorists. Who knows.

Garmin Discount Code

Hi does anybody have a complimentary 10% discount code to share or give away, that is given for the purchase of select accessories upon registering your GPS device?

Never hurts to ask, right?

Thanks.

I Am Grateful But

I am very grateful to all of the people that make and keep up the poi files,but I wish that when some one writes to you and says that a location is incorrect and gives you the necessary information to correct the poi file that you not ignore it,and if don't want to correct the file or files turn it over to some one who will.I have sent two files to be corrected and given plenty of time to see the

Newbe and my first GPS

Well I took the plunge and bought my first gps last week, a Garmin Nuvi 855 from Amazon for $119. My keen since of direction has failed me a couple of times this year, so it was time. Wow! All I can say is I had no idea what all these things can do, finding this site and its resources and the ability to do the custom poi is great.

Black Friday deals

Just wondering what everyone got for good deals on Black Friday. I got a great set of Calphalon knives for 1/3 the price.
