A new high-speed wireless network given preliminary approval for installation nationwide could cause severe disruptions to GPS signals, rendering everything from car-navigation systems to jet-flight controls useless.


New to group

Hi guys, I recently purchased a Garmin GPS and looking forward to participating in the group!

POI update question

I updated an existing POI file (Cactus_League_Baseball_Parks.csv) and submitted it via the Upload and share a CSV link.
The file never got posted and it's been around 5 or 6 days. It wasn't my file to begin with but was 2 years old and needed an update.
Was I wrong to update someone else's file?

Did you throw away that that old road map?

TGdaily has just posted an article titled "World is too reliant on GPS, warns report"

The Loop (Daytona Beach, FL)

Does anyone have a POI for the Loop in Daytona Beach, FL

Why old farts need to be tested every year


Elderly See Pedestrians Half as Often as Younger Drivers, According to New Research.

As I said in another post I am 63 and have no problem being tested when I am 65.

Do you have a factory-installed new vehicle GPS?

I've been looking at new cars lately. Many of them have built-in GPS's as an option. Can the brand be specified, or are they subcontracted by the vehicle manufacturer? Are the map and red light/speed updates free?

GPS overlay 'ready for plane use'


The European system that augments GPS signals to make them more accurate is now suitable for use in aviation, the European Commission says.

Egnos, the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service, can tell planes and helicopters where they are to within a couple of metres.

Recalculating (about every 1 or 2 kilometers)

On a recent trip along a stretch of highway 9 in Ontario,my 250W started recalculating about every 1or2 kilometers west of Orangeville . It did it for about 10kms. then stops and everything is fine.There is a very large micro wave tower in the area just off the road,possible? Anyone with any ideas.


Meritline GPS glocker

I came across this item: http://www.meritline.com/super-mini-cigarette-lighter-gps-bl...

1. Does this thing actually work?
2. Who would really buy this thing?
3. Is it even legal?

Change in Google Earth

Opened Google Earth (not Google Maps) today and I thought something was wrong. But nope, it's a change.

You know that Funky location indicator that was hard to see, especially in urban areas?

Well, now there's a bright red X in a bright red box. Hard to miss. Guess they got too many complaints about it being hard to see!
