OT Jimmy Buffet concert - Jul 11, 2010

Any one else either going or working the Jimmy Buffet concert in Gulf Shores, AL? I (and Jill) am working one of 130 bus shuttles tonight.

Red Light & Speed Cameras for Michigan

Michigan is not listed as one of the States in the Red Light & Speed Cameras POI list. Is the state list just not updated or is there no information yet for Michigan?

At 20:11 on April 19, 2011 Skynet went online. On April 21, 2011 Skynet became self-aware.

Rest Areas not allowing trucks

I see in the rest area POI file that some rest areas don't allow trucks (marked NT). Are these areas large enough for a pick up towing a travel trailer?

Road Trip September - PHX-KY-CHI-BOS-CT-NC-BACK

I'm at the very preliminary stage of planning out a road trip in September from Phoenix to Land between the Lakes in KY then to Chicago then to Boston then to Connecticut down to NC and back.

Any "must do" or "must sees" are welcome.


Are we tired of the Lebron James team selection yet?

There must be no other sports news - An 1 hr "The Decision" show. I am so tired of hearing about Lebron and the team he is going to play for. Upwards of $100M is crazy money not only for Lebron but for other players like Wade, Bosh, Stoudemire, etc. Even Boozer picked up $80M.

Genealogy and GPS

For those into Genealogy and GPS, I found something neat. It's called "Map My Ancestors", and lets you link the individuals in your family tree to the mapping capabilities of Google Earth. It's only $20.00.

How can I send maps/ Address from mapquest and google map to garmin NUvi775t

New to the site!

Just downloaded the POI's for bigfoot sightings! Can't wait to check out on my Garmin Venture HC! Just happened on this site by luck looks great! Any help on loading poi's to gps would be great!

Thank you

Just want to give a big thank you to this website and community. I've never owned a GPS, so when my dad wanted my help picking one and setting it up I had to get a 'crash course' in GPS info. This site's POI listings, FAQ's and the forum community we're extremely valuable.

Roadtrip from Phoenix to Yellowstone

We only have 9 days for our roadtrip from Phoenix, AZ to Yellowstone. We're leaving July 18 and have to be back by the 26th. This is our first ever roadtrip and we have 3 kids ages 13, 11 and 3 and we're taking our Sienna minivan (that means we need to stop in hotels to sleep).


Limiting downloads (how to erase specific POI locations)

When I downloaded "Rest Areas - Combined" I got all 2150 locations. How can I delete the ones I do not want before downloading to my Garmin? Or once downloaded, how can I erase specific ones from a Garmin 1390T?

Nuvi 350 mp3 upload

I purchased the red light alerts and wish to use the use the Emily mp3. I have communicator and POI loader, I am able to load the POI files but not the mp3's (although I can drag it over into the mp3 section). Any suggestions on getting Emily to speak the alerts? Thanks

Report: Many Detroit-area speed limits are set at 'illegally' low levels

The reality is that most drivers move along at what they consider to be a safe speed for the conditions regardless of the posted limit. To minimize accidents, the limit should therefore be the speed at which 85 percent of the drivers are moving.

In 2006, the Michigan legislature passed a law requiring speed limits to be set based on such traffic studies.

"Ceterum autem censeo, Carthaginem esse delendam" “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”

Happy Independence Day

Wishing all our southern neighbors a very happy and safe holiday.
