Welcome / open talk


Anyone doing anything GPS related for Memorial day?

Just curious. I'm avoiding traffic WITHOUT use of my Garmin. Hanging close to home and crashing several BBQs.

Striving to make the NYC Metro area project the best.

The green thing

In the line at the store, the cashier told the older woman that she should bring her own grocery bag because plastic bags weren't good for the environment. The woman apologized to him and explained, "We didn't have the green thing back in my day.

The clerk responded, "That's our problem today. The former generation did not care enough to save our environment."

Hertz Neverlost GPS has gotten far worse

I remember renting the early Hertz Neverlost units in the 90's. It was amazing to have such capability when traveling.

Now over a decade later, I'm really displeased with the newest touch screen Hertz Neverlost units.

And then, there are those who think PND would survive

Take a look at No. 2 where it states:

I-93 NH

Just as you pass the MA. border into NH there are 46 devices Traffic Toggle Cameras, Toggle Sensors, and Message Boards from Exit 1 to Exit 10, most are between exits 1 & 5. My question is would these be the concern for traffic/speed cameras? Here is the link , with the combined sensors is this worth a poi file? I'm new at this. Please let me know.

Enjoy life, it's not a rehearsal!!!

Cop or camera choose your poison


I think everyone here needs to reassess their thinking and behavior. The judges, the nurse, and the cop.

I think this is an example of everyone being wrong.

Two bruised egos and incompetence on the bench.

I am sorry to admit that in this case a speed camera would have been a much better form of enforcement,
