WinZip file problem

I downloaded a software update from Magellan and saved it. I hooked up my explorist600. My PC recognizes it. When I click on RUN, I get this message.


Unable to create temporary folder to extract to.

Magellan CSR suggested I buy another computer.
Any other ideas?

Fukushima Recovery

This is obviously not GPS related but I am wondering if anybody is following this news. I work in the nuclear industry so I get a lot of information and need to pay some attention for work reasons.

It was midnight and in an unfamiliar town...but it is still hard for me to believe. Ron White has got it right: "You can't fix stupid."

Anyone here following Dave Ramsey's 'The Seven Baby Steps'?

Essentially, Dave Ramsey's 'The Seven Baby Steps' are an ordered process of being debt free and then buying things after saving. http://www.daveramsey.com/new/baby-steps/

We're on Baby Step 2 (BS2) - pay off all debt (and we got alot). We changed our vacation plans for August 2011 to involve more driving and less other stuff and we're going to be relying on our Nuvi and its POIs even more.
