Are Cameras the New Guns?

I had been contemplating whether to post an article on the growing "illegality" of filming police for a while. While it is not really GPS related, many instances seem traffic related and we have had a spat of posts concerning "privacy". These have included OnStar recording your driving and clandestine installation of GPS devise on a person's car.

Contributor of the Week

I am noticing a lot of users of this site with Contributor of the Week badges by their names. I'm sure they can't all be contributor of the week for this past week. Are those badges staying with the user after they win it for good? Is this something new?

Contributors of the Week 2011-10-03

This is one of those weeks where it's hard to narrow the field and select just one or two people to recognize, so I've decided to do something a little different.

This week, I'm going to shine a spotlight on a discussion topic that I particularly enjoyed and recognize everyone who's contributed to the thread thus far.

The post I've selected is "Rejuvenate a Nuvi Battery?":

Zero Tolerance, Zero Sense

I just ran across an old Time magazine article I had saved. While it has nothing directly to do with Automated Traffic Enforcement, it occurred to me that it would make good reading for city councils and/or police departments considering what leeway should be given to offenses caught on cameras - particularly turning right on red.

Headstone locations

I want to use the GPS to put coordinates for the location of my ancestors headstone. Some are in very bad shape and are hard to locate.

Has anyone ever done anything like this or have advise how to proceed?

This week we're recognizing turboccc. He's already well decorated as contributor of the year for 2009 and 2010, but like the energizer bunny, this guy just keeps going-and-going-and-going smile

This last week, turboccc's been quite busy making the top-notch Extra POI Editor (EPE) even more "awesomer", with new beta versions 5.26, 5.27 and soon EPE v5.28.

Deleteing POI files

I recently downloaded two files to my brand new Garmin GPS, Costco and Walmart locations. However now I know that I already have very accurate information for both so how do I delete these from my GPS?
