Microsoft just got a patent approved for a avoiding unsafe neighborhoods when navigating via GPS. According to Microsoft, the feature is specifically aimed at pedestrian travelers, and factors conditions such as weather, terrain, and "security information" (read: crime statistics).
One thing I wish it was added to the GPD traffic alert service is the ability to display Amber Alert for the road you are traveling, this may have prevented some of the dead near Gainsville or in similar road accidents cause by dense fog or smoke.
Can all the maps in a Garmin be deleted so i can install the complete 2011 or later maps? As of now i have all of 2009 North America maps and the eastern USA and Canada maps.When i open up my files it does not show 2009 maps but in the maps section of the unit i can pick 2009 or 2011.The 2009 is not listed in any program file so how do i get rid of 2009? Thank you.

The US Supreme Court has banned law enforcement officers from planting GPS tracking bugs on suspects' vehicles without a search warrant.
This week we're recognizing camerabob. He's made quite a splash this last week by putting his new GPXClean software out for people test and try out. He's made many improvements in the last few days, and it's shaping up to be a nice utility.
The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that police must get a search warrant before using GPS technology to track criminal suspects.
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
Just the feeble mind of an old man thinking but this week RT has been an ACTIVE member for 5 years. Quite a few others are also in this category.
I propose that a special badge be awarded to all who have reached 5 years of ACTIVE membership.
Just a simple "5" badge would be nice to show their longevity as supporting members !
Just my thinking !
Jon or Angela,
This may have been asked before, but is there a way to get an email sent saying that a certain thread has been posted to?
This would be nice for we POI maintainers when someone makes a post to our POI discussion file. It is too easy to miss a post.
I know, I know, I have already bookmarked the thread. But, we older folks can't always remember to check it daily.

I recently bought a Garmin Nuvi 2595. My previous GPS was a Garmin StreetPilot 2610. I've had the StreetPilot for about 10 years but needed an upgrade for the new maps and other modern functions that are now available. What should I do with the old StreetPilot? Seems like a shame to let it sit inside or throw it away. Any ideas?
