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?

Speed Limits & RLC - Garmin vs TomTom

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

(UK) Sat-nav problems tackled at government summit



The problems caused when lorry and car drivers are misdirected by out-of-date directions from their sat-navs are to be tackled at a government summit.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

New Avoidance- Avoid Ghetto

This may be a handy feature for tourists. The entire east side of Cleveland may be off limits though.


Is it possible? maybe that's where the rest of the calendar is!

Mayas in the USA controversy . . . you be the juror. The linkage to this article is at the bottom of the page.

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.


road map

I'm trying to find a web site that shows only 2 lane paved roads taking a trip to VA. and then up around wisconsin. wanting to stay on 2 lane roads. leaving from Central Kansas Has anyone came across a web site like that? shortround62


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?

GPS Related Death

A college student died as a result of an automobile accident about three miles from my home. http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2012/01/auburn_student_di...

The reported cause of the accident: She and her boyfriend were attempting to locate a local business and were entering the address into their GPS system.

This is pretty creepy, but would make good company for Mr. & Mrs Potato Head.


Come on, tell us if your going to buy or not buy one of these.

For me: NOT

This is where I wish we had poll's available.

Thought I had my 250W sold...LOL

k, well I bought a couple of nuvi's on our Boxing Day Sales so I put my nuvi 250W up for sale on kiijii. Typical emails saying I am interested that lead to zilch, than a guy today who sets up a meeting with me to buy it. Calls me on my way down says I am $20 short I will go home to get money from my kid (odd in itself unless it is for this kid).
