Traveling with DC Metro? Get a lawyer

Short time ago there was topic about TSA at airports. And some users advice was to use other means of transportation to avoid checks. In light of this I'd like to say that you can't use DC Metro as well. Because Last Thursday, DC Metro officials announced that "anti-terrorism teams" will immediately begin conducting random bag searches.

Question re Commom Problem

I'm a seasoned traveler, but new to using a GPS device to guide me, and help find points of interest. We have a fairly large rig consisting of a 34' fifth wheel trailer and an F350 Ford diesel dual wheel truck.

Two problems commonly arise traveling with this type rig.

Finding easily accessible service stations having diesel fuel.

Contributors of the Week 2010-12-13

This week we are recognizing TheProf and Camping Rivopom.

TheProf, is still a file making machine putting out file after file. He has created 47 new project files in his short 14 weeks and 5 days on the site. I think that you can now consider yourself addicted to this new hobby of yours.

We appreciate the enthusiasm that you have in making everyone's POI file dreams come true.

Project idea etiquette....

I am starting this thread because I keep coming across situations where one person talks about a plan for a project idea and then it shows up in the content bin under a different maintainer.

Sometimes I am not really paying attention to what you guys plan in the forums.

After party plans?

Here's a tongue-in-cheek poke at those who don't take warnings about driving while impaired or being in a public place after over indulging at a party.

Downloading Alert Sounds


I just subscribed to download the speed and red light camera locations and
custom alert sounds. I know how to download the bmp icons but am having a
problem downloading the custom alert sounds. When I click on them, they just
play but I can't see where to download.





I used my TomTom GPS and my HTC Evo GPS on Hawaii. Both worked great. The Evo GPS was amazing though. It had amazing detail, speed, and reception. I was able to get GPS lock 2 levels deep in a concrete parking garage.

I ended up relegating the TomTom GPS to back up duty, while the Evo was my main GPS.

It was fantastic to have such useful tools while traveling in Hawaii!!!

2010 Holiday deals....

I figured it was time to make a new thread for all the upcoming deals going on over the next few weeks.

This is not on sale right now but it is on my list of must have items for newer Garmins.

General Maintainers:


In a effort to cut down on over updating our GPS units during all times of the week...

I purpose a NEW systematic change?

Outback Steakhouse

I was trying to meet my family at an Outback. Much to my surprise there were NO Outback's listed under "All Foods" in the OEM POI listings (Garmin Nuvi 1490T). Did Outback refuse to meet Garmin's listing price?

FDNY auto accident fees

Interesting, & disturbing:

Not sure if this is a done deal or not?
