Cars that steer in direction driver is looking

shock Wow. Just Wow.

"Tired of spinning that steering wheel? Try this: German researchers have developed a new technology that lets drivers steer cars using only their eyes.

Raul Rojas, an artificial intelligence researcher at Berlin's Free University, said Friday that the technology tracks a driver's eye movement and, in turn, steers the car in whatever direction they're looking."

Cel Towers

Anyone ever seen a POI file with the location of cel towers? Seems to me that when I'm on my boat cruising Lake of the Woods, one shoreline looks like the next. However, tall structures stand out quite necely, like for instance the cel tower at Morson Ontario. You can see it for miles (even at night since it is lit), and it makes it VERY easy to find the way home.

My biggest fear is that when I die, my wife will sell my fishing stuff for what I said I paid for it.

Another Suggestion

I've done a lot of reading and there are a load of interests and resulting POI files here.

Now... on one of my journeys recently, I wandered past an RC Airfield and I have no idea if it's in the POI file we have for them.

Suggestion for site (current map version)

I have a suggestion for the site:
Like we have "My Favorite Files" --- I'd like to make a suggestion for the Site....

Add a new Bullet point: "Current Map Release" with the current Lifetime map release version number and Date of release displayed.... This way, we can instantly determine what the latest Lifetime Map release is, and what date it was released....

So it could look like this:

2689LMT That I'm still learning... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

POI User Experience

Just completed a 1600 mile trip. Thank you for the custom POIs. Found the "Rest Areas - combined" to be particularly useful. Still can't figure out what the "WB" stands for.

Other POIs referenced were Costco, Sam's Club, and Speed Traps in Texas.

Found the U-Haul POIs to be lacking in the areas traveled - Texas to Utah.

GPS Software For Pharos GPS Phone 600

I had been using Garmin Mobile XT on my Pharos GPS Phone 600, but it looks like it has been discontinued. I was thinking bout On Course Navigator (OCN 8), but it looks like that is also no longer available. Does anybody know what other choices I have for a Windows Mobile Phone with built in GPS?

What is active status?

Sorry for the newbie question, but what exactly is active status and what is "qualifying activity" that leads to active status?
