Slow Moving Vehicle Ratio

You're on a country road and see a bike or slow moving vehicle ahead. You hope that you'll be able to have plenty of room to pass. Unfortunately by the time you get to that point, he is near the crest of a blind hill, crossing a narrow bridge, or another car is coming.

The result, is you have to slow down and wait or squeeze closer to the vehicle than you liked.

What Is The Longest Trip You Have Made With GPS Away From The Roadway?

I have done some ATVing recently and I am just curious what the longest trip other members here have made away from the roadway with a GPS? How helpful was the GPS? Did you stay on a trail or river? I have gone probably 100 miles or more on an ATV trail and having my Garmin Nuvifone G60 along was very helpful.

New to the Forum/TomTom

I've been a long time GPS user. My first GPS was a Deluo serial unit that hooked to a Dell Axim x5. I ran Mapopolis on that unit until they finally pulled the plug on it. After that I got a Lowrance 350c which I used for many years until the plug was pulled on updates for it also! Tough to keep a unit around that is missing sections of major highways in a metropolitan area!

PhoneBook not working on 1490T

Garmin Sat Nav 1490T

Hi just wanted to say when I first purchased the unit the phonebook did not appear in the bluetooth menu, I tried several times and was about to give up when it worked, so just keep trying. BOL.

Restaurant Review

Armstrongs Restaurant located in the Caste Village Shopping Center in Castle Shannon used to be one of my favorite spots for a family dinner. However, for reasons I can not explain, the quality of the food and service has gotten progressively worse over the past couple of years. I can understand the rise in menu prices, that is to be expected.

Looking for new GPS

I have a Garmin nuvi 360.....its time for a new one! I'm open to any brand. What's good? What do you have and why do you like it? Would you recommend it?

Good idea or a violation of rights?
It may be not new technology , but it is to Northeast Ohio.

I bet it will be challenged in court, and should be!
