Pennsylvania has raised fees and fines for several traffic offenses.
Fines, fees and penalties
Pennsylvania will levy a surcharge on fines, fees and penalties for driving offenses under the new transportation plan. Increases will touch everything from fines for passing a stopped school bus to fines for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Hi everyone. I'm pretty much a new user here, but I happened to come across this site and found it to be very interesting and useful; it's great how people make these files so you don't have to pay for a map upgrade to keep your GPS up-to-date; I was one of the people who didn't want to pay for a map update, so as time went by my Magellan SE4 became way out-of-date.
I'm guessing that PND's will always be around for car navigation.
The cons of cell phones for navigation include the smaller size of the screen, less accurate routing, unreliable cell tower service, tying up the phone while the app is running, and the cost for the app.
And as far as I know, you can't save your own POI's in the phone as you pass a location. Maybe I'm wrong about this.
When you update your POI files please remember to update the POI's LOGBOOK so the change history can be noted. OR alternatively, please note the change within the text of the POI file node.
This makes it easy for everyone to decide if the new POI is worthy of a download. If just one minor change was made I often don't download the file.
I have posted this here just an case anybody here is interested in the non-navigation aspects of GPS. Merry Christmas!
But critics worry about privacy — when, where and how it’s used by law enforcement officers.
50$ iTunes card for 39$ at Walmart in Canada. Sale starts at 1pm on boxing day till December 31st but they do state there are limited quantities.
Since Contributor of the Year voting is underway, I will not be posting a COW for this week.
This week I’d like to hear about how you either celebrate or endure the holiday season.
Are there family traditions that you enjoy or do you hide out with your light box and count the days till January 2nd?
I have deleted the Cracker Barrel file from my custom POI file. They have said & done things that offend me.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2014, or Political correct Happy Holiday
This was on last night news. I almost purchased an iPad Mini at Target store on black Friday. Glad I didn't.
BOSTON (Reuters) - Target Corp said hackers have stolen data from up to 40 million credit and debit cards of shoppers who visited its stores during the first three weeks of the holiday season in the second-largest such breach reported by a U.S. retailer.
Here is my entree, computer work starts in June lights go on the day after Thanksgiving, please give a thumbs up in Youtube.
Has anyone here had experience using any products from La Crosse Alerts? The research I have done looks promising. I worry about the "home front" while traveling during the winter.
Since Contributor of the Year voting is underway, I’ve decided not to post a COW for this week.
Instead I thought it might be nice to hear a little about how 2013 went for everyone.
Is there a New Year’s resolution you stuck with?
For the goal setters, is there a special met goal that you’re particularly proud of?
Did you check an item off of your bucket list?
Got back Saturday from a trip to New Orleans, and though I'm a Luddite dinosaur, I'm starting to see the benefit of a smart phone with GPS.
On our way to Pascal's Manale for BBQ shrimp,there was a car overturned on the streetcar tracks. The driver said Napolean Avenue was "a few blocks up there", but we had no idea the distance. A smart phone/GPS would have told us how far we had to go.

I just found this.
"Send to car and the new Google Maps
Send to Car will be available soon on the new Google Maps - and we want to make sure you can use the feature as soon as it’s ready. To get the Send to Car feature in the new Google Maps, you need to sign in to your Google Account and save a Send to Car enabled device to that account.
Tonight, I noticed there's new labeling when choosing which file format to download. Formerly, CSV implied Garmin and has always been successful for my Garmin units. Tonight, I'm seeing Garmin associated with GPX and Rand McNally associated with CSV. For example contrast "Rest Areas Combined" with "Truck/RV Fuel Stations" and you'll see what I'm referencing.
How sad that the rich can many times buy their way out.
A 16 year old from a privileged family kills 4 innocent people while driving intoxicated and gets 10 years probation.
Why, because the attorney brings up in defense he was never taught, he was "raised in an environment of privilege that afforded him no understanding of actions and their consequences"
