This week we are recognizing Dgwood12 and JD4X4.

Dgwood12, I did a little happy dance when I saw your project appear as an idea in the forums.

"Bigfoot sightings" I love things like this, it is unique and interesting and would never be found in a GPS straight out of the box.

Best bang for your buck?

Well got suckered into the TOM TOM trade in. I traded in my Garmin for the TT 340xl and it kicked the bucket already. Granted they will replace it, but it left a bad taste in my mounth. So, what is the best bang for your buck now days. I am looking at spending about $200-225.

Goooooood Morning POI Factory!

Getting ready to do a cardiac stress test with the newly-fallen snow outside and thought I'd start the inevitable conversation on the big December East Coast snowfall. (Before we loose power, or I do from the stress test).

It's about the Line- If a line can be drawn between the powers granted and the rights retained, it would seem to be the same thing, whether the latter be secured by declaring that they shall not be abridged, or that the former shall not be extended.

Google Earth for Audi Vehicles

Google and Audio are bringing google earth to vehicle GPS units. From the pictures, this looks really impressive. I've been wondering when more detailed maps would be available for GPS units. Hopefully something like this will be available for hand held units soon.

Amount of Red Light Cameras in New York City

I was under the impression that the number of red light cameras in NYC was limited by government legislation. I cannot find any information on this and there seems to be a lot of new ones in Staten Island alone. Any information would be appreciated.

MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI

New map viewer for USGS topographic maps and GPX/KML/TPO files. Free, no ads.

Hello All,

Since this is my first post here I’ll try to make it worth your while. My name is Joseph Elfelt and I’m posting to let you know about an enhanced Google map viewer I have written that (1) can open and display data from GPX files and (2) includes the 7.5ʺ USGS/USFS topographic maps.
