Confused about "My Recent Posts" feature

I was trying to retrieve a previous post of mine so I went to "recent post" under my account and then selected the tab "My recent posts". The result is a list of topics I have looked at and maybe participated some times ago but they are sorted by the most recent update by anybody so it makes it difficult to locate my own posts.

how to simply down grade your firmware version

this is a simple way to down grade your firmware version. in the event you have trouble with the new version, i conducted the experiment on nuvi>255>1490T several times whit no issue's.( 1 create a folder on your computer) name the folder what ever you want ( 2 connect your nuvi to your PC ) ( 3 go to your garmin folder look for a file call XML COPY AND PASTE ONLY,to your new folder.

Navteq versus Teleatlas maps

"Googling" for a comparison between Navteq and Teleatlas map accuracy and completeness seems not to yield much in the way of any recent professional reviews. I am finding mostly blog/forum posts from 2007 and before.

Earthquakes change GPS coordinates

Interesting news item:
The powerful earthquake that struck Baja California and the southwestern United States in April actually moved an entire California border city, NASA radar images show.

Calexico, Calif., near the U.S.-Mexico border, moved as much as 2 1/2 feet (80 cm) south and down into the ground due to the magnitude-7.2 earthquake on April 4.

GPS for Bus Drivers

I currently have a NUVI-660, which is a great unit, and I bought a NUVI-765t, which is not so great, it stays lost more then I do. What id like to know from all you GPS pros is what is the best GPS for Charter bus drivers. It has to work well in large cities and hopefully keep me off restricted streets and away from low bridges.

New Nuvi (replaced TomTom)

New Nuvi
To make a long story short - my TomTom just stopped working. My wife thinks it was fried in the heat in the car. Could be. So I replaced it with a Nuvi 255w. Nice unit not as sturdy as the TomTom but nice. First use was to drive to work 41 miles and see if it showed me any new routes.
