Well, it looks like the slowdowns in downloading & accessing forum topics is gone for me as of Monday.
Perhaps the whole thing was related to the Olympics & the amount of online access to the info.
Whatever the reason, I'm glad the problem has departed.
We live in a densely populated suburb. 4 1/2 yrs. ago I got into a confrontation--during a snow storm, I was parking my car on the street. Guy with two Porsches, and Audi, and a BMW said not to park across from his house if I care about my car. This came out of nowhere so I threw it in reverse and parked exactly where he told me not to.
This week we're recognizing bobinot.
Bobinot maintains several well-recognized files including Motel Six, Travelodge, Wienerschnitzel, and many more. He's been doing a great job, tending his list of files and keeping them up-to-date.
He's one of the guys who steadily maintains a bunch of POI files, and we're thankful for the work that he and others like him are sharing with our community.
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.

Question for the Garmin users on this site. I don't think stating the model matters since I have seen this with different Garmin models.
When I ask for a route from A to B the Garmin takes me one way but if I reverse the route the direction are not the same. Most of the route is the same but NOT identical. Is it me or does your Garmin do the same thing?
Within the next two weeks, we're thinking about doing a Palm Springs --> Laughlin, Nevada --> St George, Utah road trip. Any suggestions on what to see/do along the way (for a family of four, two adults and two kids)
Usually, we let
1. Offbeat Tourist Attractions - US File + other attraction POI files
2. Various places to eat POI files
3. Local events
help us figure out what to do.
Just wanted to say hi, got Garmin Nuvi 2495 a few days ago and starting to check out the features.
It all started with Sputnik. What seemed at the time like a major defeat in the Cold War, turned out to be the catalyst for one of the most important technologies of the 20th century, and maybe the 21st.
model has beneficial blue tooth hands free features. Some even with back up camera's.
What kind of monthly post would people like to see here, The Birthday Poast has been poated every month for a year and now I think most of of the active ones have posted at least once in that year.
How would one be
"Glad I Woke Up Today" or
"Didn't find my obituary in the Paper Today so enjoy the Day?
This week I would like to recognize MikeSid.
MikeSid helps keep me up-to-date with the southern MD speed cameras.
Recently, he went out of his way to drive by several locations that were missing speed limits to get the actual posted speed limits.
This member may not post much in the forums, but his efforts help us assist many.
Look what happens when you text and drive.
Download speeds for POI's continue to be at a snails pace. I just downloaded the Walmart POI (gpx) at an unbelievable 6 KB/sec & it took more than 10 minutes.
There must be some kind of problem since I was not experiencing this last week at all.
Has Jon made any headway in identifying the problem?
At the NASCAR race next Sunday, Mike Skinner will be sponsored by TRAQM. Their products gather data from HD video and GPS and other inputs.
A company spokesman said.
Why is the forum so slow for the last week, or two? I have a 10/1 connection, and this is the only site that crawls to load.
It's worse than my 3G connection on my phone. What's up, JM? Were changes made to servers?

In danger of losing your windmill?
Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.) Anything to keep your windmill alive.
