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.
Finally a tech site stands up in defense of the PND.
No need to repeat
GPS signals were spoofed with false coordinates and our drone happily landed where they wanted it to.
1. Browse to Google Maps and include the place you want coordinates for
2. Right-click on the exact spot on the map you want the lat & long for and select "What's Here"
The page title and the search box will change to that location's latitude and longitude.
In case you missed it.
Can you use CSV files with garmin? If so, how. My POI Loader doesn't recognize them.

I guess this should not go in the smartphone forum since it is Android but does not have a phone. The website has lots of "Coming soon" and "Check this space for more information" so it looks a ways from full production.
"First Android Dedicated GPS Unit Actually Looks Pretty Decent
has everyone seen the news - NTSB wants all states to ban all use of cell phones in cars.
Is there a POI for the dolphin staues (Virginia Beach) and mermaid statues (Norfolk)?
This week we are recognizing deere478. Deere478 is a newcomer on the site who's jumped right in and adopted the Tractor Supply & Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches files, which were both in need of some love. He's also been busy posting in the forums this week and has been good about sharing his troubleshooting results with the community.
Welcome and thank you deere478!

I currently use Mapsource for trip planning and routing. I read some time ago that has been phased out by Garmin. I am assuming that Basecamp is the replacement. I got Mapsource with a GPS that I purchased back in 2003 and I like the program. Is Basecamp a better replacement? Would it be to my advantage to switch to Basecamp now?
From the article:
According to a draft of the report obtained by Boomberg News, LightSquared's signals "caused harmful interference to majority [sic] of GPS receivers tested. No additional testing is required to confirm harmful interference exists."
