Marinas enroute from top of Kentucky Lake to the South end?

Our vessel is at Green Turtle Bay. We are back in Canada.I'm trying to get some idea as to marinas along the way.We do about 8 miles,speed over ground,,therefore could do 80 miles a day if 10 hr. days are possible?

IS anyone able to direct me to such a list with mileage or distance between each Marina.

Micro memory card with SD holder

I am buying an SD card for my 750. If I buy a micro card and pop it into an SD card holder, do they work OK, or is there a down side to doing it that way?

Suggestion for New GPS

I am considering a stand alone GPS and am looking for suggestions. It would be good to get something under $250. Thank you in advance for your information.

Fines.- Enforcement or Revenue.

Running red lights and exceeding the speed limits are traffic offences in most jurisdictions. The penalty is generally a fine, and sometimes "penalty points". There are of course many other traffic laws we can break and be punished for. The punishment is also usually a minimum of a fine.

Garmin or TomTom


I've been gone a while. It's time to replace my aged Nuvi 360. I've always used Garmin but this is 2009.

In the United States, which is the best choice for the money now; Garmin or TomTom?

I've heard TomTom's maps have significantly improved and I like the option of being to update my maps/download approved maps which TomTom now offers.

I don't know where I'm going or remember where I've been...without Garmin.

Dutch government wants to track all motorists with GPS.

I wonder how long until this happens in the U.S. ?


The Dutch government said Friday it wants to introduce a "green" road tax by the kilometre from 2012 aimed at cutting carbon dioxide emissions by 10 percent and halving congestion.

Where are you travels taking you for Thanksgiving?

Me: I'm heading to the northeast, first to Boston to visit some friends, and then to NJ and CT to see my sisters. One of them was just diagnosed with cancer. It is thought to be the least aggressive type, and said not to have metastasized yet. So, I'm more thankful than ever.

A lot of driving, but... have GPS, will travel.

US Thanksgiving and the Red Light/Speed Camera Files

An admittedly selfish request for Miss POI:

Thanksgiving will be celebrated in the United States two weeks from tomorrow (Thursday, November 26). Is there any possibility that the red light/speed camera files for that week could be released a day earlier, on Tuesday, November 24? The Krull family (us) will be starting our holiday road trip on Wednesday, November 25, and we (and perhaps others here) will not be able to download the "latest and greatest" if it is issued that day.
