Contributors of the Week 2011-11-07

This week we are recognizing alandb. Alandb took the time to do a thorough write-up of the technique he used to install map updates directly to SD card for his 755T. After many trials, he found an approach that worked and was nice enough to share his solution with the whole community.

Thank you alandb!

Question about New posts.... Sometimes I see them with red NEW, sometimes not...

Sometimes I see new posts in a thread highlighted with a Red "NEW", and other times not....

Take for example, the "NA 2012.30 is available" thread... I see there are 12 new posts... but today I don't see the red "NEW" indicator on the last 12 posts on page 2.

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

Veterans Day Nov 11, 2011

Now is the time to pause and reflect upon how our military veterans have served and sacrificed in order to preserve our freedom and attain freedom for those in many other parts of the world. And don’t forget the sacrifices of their families! Thank you, veterans and families!

Black Friday / Cyber Monday - 2011

We're only about 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving now, so it's time to start up the holiday shopping thread.

Any great deals you find interesting are fair game. It's okay to go beyond GPS.

Let's use this thread up to Cyber Monday, and then I'll start another one for December Holidays.

Roundabout opinion

I'm starting to see many new roundabouts around the US Southeast. I just read many older drivers don't like them. I'm 63, and am a fan.

It seems to me "Yield to traffic in circle" is much less confusing that the usual 4 way stop quandry of I think I was here first.

So, I'm curious: What's your opinion?

Like? Dislike? Why?

You bet

You used to be able to get lost in the crowd, but not anymore. Double click on any area in the picture to bring the person closer. Or, just click the mouse and use the mouse wheel to bring them closer.

You can scan and zoom to any section of the crowd. Wait a few seconds. Double click anywhere. And the focus adjusts to give you a very identifiable close up.
