It may be not new technology , but it is to Northeast Ohio.

I bet it will be challenged in court, and should be!

Troy Michigan bans distracted driving.

Well it seems someone has figured out that they are in danger out on the open road in this country that thinks of driving as a time to multitask as many things as possible into the wasted time traveling from point A to point B.

Road Trip - Kingsport, TN to Dover, DE

Just got back from this trip. I purchased the Nuvi 1450 so I could enter a Rout that allowed me to bypass the traffic around Washington, DC and Baltimore. I had to pick up my daughter in Front Royal, VA so that was the starting point for my Routing around Metro DC and Baltimore. From Front Royal, I set up a route to Berryville, VA, Frederick, MD and then to Annapolis, MD.

Have fun...

OT Jimmy Buffet concert - Jul 11, 2010

Any one else either going or working the Jimmy Buffet concert in Gulf Shores, AL? I (and Jill) am working one of 130 bus shuttles tonight.

Red Light & Speed Cameras for Michigan

Michigan is not listed as one of the States in the Red Light & Speed Cameras POI list. Is the state list just not updated or is there no information yet for Michigan?

At 20:11 on April 19, 2011 Skynet went online. On April 21, 2011 Skynet became self-aware.

Rest Areas not allowing trucks

I see in the rest area POI file that some rest areas don't allow trucks (marked NT). Are these areas large enough for a pick up towing a travel trailer?

Road Trip September - PHX-KY-CHI-BOS-CT-NC-BACK

I'm at the very preliminary stage of planning out a road trip in September from Phoenix to Land between the Lakes in KY then to Chicago then to Boston then to Connecticut down to NC and back.

Any "must do" or "must sees" are welcome.


Are we tired of the Lebron James team selection yet?

There must be no other sports news - An 1 hr "The Decision" show. I am so tired of hearing about Lebron and the team he is going to play for. Upwards of $100M is crazy money not only for Lebron but for other players like Wade, Bosh, Stoudemire, etc. Even Boozer picked up $80M.

Genealogy and GPS

For those into Genealogy and GPS, I found something neat. It's called "Map My Ancestors", and lets you link the individuals in your family tree to the mapping capabilities of Google Earth. It's only $20.00. http://download.cnet.com/Map-My-Ancestors/3000-2127_4-108547...

How can I send maps/ Address from mapquest and google map to garmin NUvi775t

New to the site!

Just downloaded the POI's for bigfoot sightings! Can't wait to check out on my Garmin Venture HC! Just happened on this site by luck looks great! Any help on loading poi's to gps would be great!

Thank you

Just want to give a big thank you to this website and community. I've never owned a GPS, so when my dad wanted my help picking one and setting it up I had to get a 'crash course' in GPS info. This site's POI listings, FAQ's and the forum community we're extremely valuable.

Roadtrip from Phoenix to Yellowstone

We only have 9 days for our roadtrip from Phoenix, AZ to Yellowstone. We're leaving July 18 and have to be back by the 26th. This is our first ever roadtrip and we have 3 kids ages 13, 11 and 3 and we're taking our Sienna minivan (that means we need to stop in hotels to sleep).


Limiting downloads (how to erase specific POI locations)

When I downloaded "Rest Areas - Combined" I got all 2150 locations. How can I delete the ones I do not want before downloading to my Garmin? Or once downloaded, how can I erase specific ones from a Garmin 1390T?
