Introducing GPXClean for Windows!

Before I get long winded, I wish to thank BobKZ and Box Car (or is it 'Sox Car' wink ) for helping me beat up the very early beta versions (like last week!). It's a very small package that doesn't require an install. Just save somewhere where Windows (sorry Mac guys...) can find it and run.

New Year and health

One of my goals each year is to find ways to improve my health and fitness.
One year I got into cardio kick-boxing. I've been doing water aerobics for years and then last fall I really got into aerial yoga.
That is serious fun!

What sort of things have you done, or are currently doing to get in to or maintain your physical health?

Good evening! Not sure where this topic falls, so I've posted in the General section.

(UK) Sat-nav problems tackled at government summit

Quote:

The problems caused when lorry and car drivers are misdirected by out-of-date directions from their sat-navs are to be tackled at a government summit.

Local Transport Minister Norman Baker will host the talks in March to ensure everything possible is done to get the right vehicles on the right roads.

Advance Auto Parts

Can someone tell me why Advance Auto Parts POI's are changing daily (sometimes even several times each day)?

The size of the file varies largely too.

Thanks.

Where is the 2460LMT JCV file located?

I bought the 2460LMT and am looking to add the older, larger JCV file to my sd card, however I wanted to removed the existing JCV internal memory file so there would be no conflict, but I can't locate it. I added the older, larger file to my sd card but it doesn't seem to be working and I thought perhaps that it was because of a conflict with the internal JCV file. Anyone else get it to work?
