Indianapolis Suggestions from the Community...

We are planning a long weekend trip to Indianapolis on the weekend after July 4th (Thurs. - Sun.). Having never been there before I was wondering if anyone familiar with the city would have some good suggestions for things to do or places to eat.

Oddball question regarding Google Maps

question I know this isn't directly related to POI's, but it is in a roundabout way. I've got one burning question and I'll explain it first...

...if I only had a brain...

I'm baaaaaaaaaccckkk

grin Hello all! It's been a LOOONG time since I was last here. I can see my old account has faded away, and that's understandable. Been so long since I've been here that I don't even remember who was running this place. Boy I used to contribute a lot of effort into generating POI's, but now with the new GPS units, custom POI's are rapidly become less and less user friendly.

Simulated speed demon

Sitting here in my Lazyboy simulating driving South on an Interstate.

I put in a new destination (to the North)which made vehicle head off an exit to go back the other way. On what looked like an on-ramp, there was no specified speedlimit. My vehicle sped up to over 80 mph.

Whoooeeee. evil

Bullied grandmother on school bus

Can some upload the location of the school so that I can drive there and say a few things to those boys? Those boys need a little talking to about respecting others, especially respecting the seniors in our society.

Would like to hear all comments about this story.

Power from your automobile's standard plug in

Going on 2 trips soon with 3 passengers. Each of them have movie CD player, so they will want power from the car. I would like power to my GPS also.

Will a 4-way (or three 2-way) power adapters have enough juice to run them? If not, how many can I do at once.
