The courts are divided on the legality of GPS tracking and the issue seems destined for the Supreme Court.

Pioneer preps laser head-up display

Pioneer is developing a head-up display for cars that links in with the navigation function available on many modern smartphones. A prototype of the device is on show this week at Japan's Ceatec electronics show, and the company said it hopes to have a commercial model available in 2012.

POI Confirmation & Cloud Data vs. Cached Data

As I was reading the posts http://www.poi-factory.com/node/5107?page=3 about incorrect POIs, etc., I was sort of reminiscing about another hobby of mine and comparing and contrasting. I am a licensed amateur radio operator as well as scanner radio listener.

Summerville, West Virginia

I'm traveling to South Carolina, soon and have heard of the infamous Summerville Speed Trap, along Hwy 19.

Does anyone have the coordinates that show where it changes from 65 MPH to 50 MPH.

I plan to stay alert and my wife will be watching as well, but one can never be too careful with a place like this.


companies providing POI files

I'm finding more and more companies providing store location POI files on their Websites. Maybe we could provide a link option in the POI File section, rather than posting a static file?

For example, ScotiaBank has a file of locations, ExxonMobil does too - might be better for us to post the links so it is always current?

Adapter to unlock the Toyota (Sienna) & Lexus GPS unit to use it while driving

I have found a company in Calif. who sells the adapter to unlock the GPS units in Toyota SIenna and LExus so that the user can search poi, input addresses while driving. ALso this adapter will allow user to use the radion/music section without restriction (like searching for multiple folders, songs on ipod ect).

Map Quality / Accuracy

I just purchased a nuvi 1450T, and I find it very refreshing compared to my old TomTom 930T. One of the things that seriously frustrated me with TomTom was the lack of accuracy in the maps. I am not referring to a brand new overpass, but in one case a piece of highway that has been in place for over 10 years and is 15 miles long, but TomTom's maps were unaware of it.
