Highways in New Mexico

I've spent the last few days driving around New Mexico - Santa Fe, Los Alamos, down to Roswell and now Carlsbad. The trip has been quite enjoyable as I haven't been this way before.

In Ohio you can get a speeding ticket by an officer who now can estimate your speed

"A police officer's unaided visual estimation of a vehicle's speed is sufficient evidence to support a conviction for speeding in violation of [state law] without independent verification of the vehicle's speed if the officer is trained, is certified by the Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy or a similar organization that develops and implements training programs to meet the needs of the communit

Battery Charge Level for Long Term Storage??

At some point in the near future I'll be upgrading my Nuvi 260 for a Nuvi 1450. The plan is to put the 260 into storage as a backup in case I lose or damage the new unit. I know that the battery will last longest with a charge of about 40% and I usually keep the 260 in the fridge when I won't be using it for a week or more to help preserve battery life.

Just saying hello

Hi All,

I'm new to the POI files, but they look very cool and I'm sure once I get the hang of these it should be very helpful.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 360 and I am currently trying to get all my locations I have added over the years downloaded to my Mac. No help from Garmin on this one yet.

I'm mostly looking for and want to create off road way points for exploring in a Jeep.

Windmills?

Oh the elusive icon. I've been a member for 46 weeks and relatively active. But not in the "posting" area. I get one or two weeks of active status then am traveling. So, I get no windmill. Oh woe is me.

Wilt thy windmill be soest mine? Nay perchance I do fully believe.

look i got stars

this must mean its taking me a long time to do lookout towers.never new it would be so much work.thanks for the stars miss poi

Red Light Cameras

Red light cameras are springing up all over. Too bad they have little positive impact on safety. But, in these tough economic times they are certainly a way around "raising taxes".

Converting MAPS not POIs

Anyone out there know of a program that converts MAPs? I found a interesting map that is apparently for MAGELLAN, but not for TOMTOM.

Check this out!:

Interesting collection of crash videos.

Examples of what we would all like to avoid!

As you will see in this video, even if you drive safely, many others do not.
