Traffic Light Assistance

This is an intresting idea.. check out the link about this system..

The system counts down to the next green light if you’re already stopped at a red light. It works by connecting your car via Wi-Fi with the central traffic control computer.

heads up

Maybe some of you know about this site already, but I just happened to run across it and thought I would post it. It will convert kml and gpx files either way. I loaded a track from my 2597 into MapSource and saved it as a gpx file then tried it on the site. I double clicked the resulting file and it loaded into Google Earth with no problem. I have not tried it the other way.

Amazing GPS: I once was lost but now am found.

DelORME topo 8

When I tried opening some poi.cvs files I have been using for my Delorme Topo 8 for the last three years and they suddenly no longer even show up in the folder. In explorer I found files but with an X in their upper left corner. What the? Downloaded new files and they did not show up either. Any clues? Thanks.

RoadNinja

If you've used RoadNinja recently, and also have a dedicated GPS, are you happy with RoadNinja? Does it do things better than your GPS unit? Is RoadNinja accurate and complete?

Big Brother or smart policing?

Dallas police say their new license plate reader systems are the latter. The department recently joined a growing number of local agencies that use this crime-fighting technology. It’s equipped 14 vehicles with the cameras and deployed 14 fixed readers throughout the city.

POI by state?

Does anybody know where I can get POI's by state or do I have to create my own? I'm lazy and not so good with Excel so I am just wondering smile

Geocaching

There is a free app for geocaching available for Iphones at www.geocache.com. For Ipad and android phone the app costs $10. It is by far the best app out there for geocaching. Good luck!

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Is it legal to operate a GPS while driving?

In Florida it is now illegal to text while driving. It is also illegal to text someone who you know is driving. I wonder if it is illegal to program a GPS with a destination such as an address. It is similar to texting. You take your eyes off the road to enter data. My Garmin states that I should not program it while driving. I have to agree before it starts up. But is it illegal?
