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!

In danger of losing your windmill?

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.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

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?

GPS creator Brad Parkinson calls for tougher penalties

"Penalties for jamming GPS networks need to be co-ordinated worldwide as their importance grows, the technology’s chief architect says."

"On top of increasing the penalties for owning and using GPS jammers, Parkinson argues that manufacturers of receivers, particularly in the maritime industry, need to start toughening up their devices."

Extensive FM Traffic Greater Toronto Area

Just wondering if there are other FM traffic sites my TT can use in GTA. I noticed that traffic update in only up to Mississauga if you are heading west.

If there is how do you switch from the default set by TT.

Redlight/Speed Cameras

The entry on the main page saying the last update is from 2/12/2014 is not correct. They have been updated to 2/19/2014 - just look further.

OOPS. It must have just been updated on the main page. Sorry!
