A GPS can take you where You want to go but never where you WANT to be.

Photos and Geo-tag

Some of the members may already know about this and use it.I just started trying it out.It is one of the best editing programs I have came up on for photos and so user friendly.The best part is the GEO-Tag feature that connects to Google Earth for tagging or adding photos.Really simple.Just select the pictures and line up on the Google Earth map and tag them.See http://picasa.google.com/ .

This week we are recognizing one of our very first members. Kch50428 has been with us since the very beginning. He is number 2340, and it is always a pleasure to have him active in the forums.

It is nice to have been around so long that you get nostalgic when older members come back home after being silent for a while.

Slow Moving Vehicle Ratio

You're on a country road and see a bike or slow moving vehicle ahead. You hope that you'll be able to have plenty of room to pass. Unfortunately by the time you get to that point, he is near the crest of a blind hill, crossing a narrow bridge, or another car is coming.

The result, is you have to slow down and wait or squeeze closer to the vehicle than you liked.

Alternative dash mount (cheap)

For $8.99 it might be worth a try.

What Is The Longest Trip You Have Made With GPS Away From The Roadway?

I have done some ATVing recently and I am just curious what the longest trip other members here have made away from the roadway with a GPS? How helpful was the GPS? Did you stay on a trail or river? I have gone probably 100 miles or more on an ATV trail and having my Garmin Nuvifone G60 along was very helpful.

New to the Forum/TomTom

I've been a long time GPS user. My first GPS was a Deluo serial unit that hooked to a Dell Axim x5. I ran Mapopolis on that unit until they finally pulled the plug on it. After that I got a Lowrance 350c which I used for many years until the plug was pulled on updates for it also! Tough to keep a unit around that is missing sections of major highways in a metropolitan area!

PhoneBook not working on 1490T
