The topic here about Zadmi got me thinking. In 1999, I was using a hockey puck receiver with Rand McNally mapping software on a laptop to navigate. I was driving an 18 wheeler. The maps were none to detailed, and actual addresses were hard to locate. It would get you in the general area. Sometimes it would take you exactly where you want to go.
zadmi, happy anniversary. You're the Factory's longest sitting member - user-id #1. Congratulations for being a member for 10 years and 21 minutes. Way to go.

Samsung to limit battery charging on Galaxy Note 7 phones to prevent fires
by Jethro Mullen @CNNTech September 14, 2016: 5:11 AM ET
As it races to replace millions of its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones around the world, Samsung has come up with a way to stop the devices from catching fire: update the software.
For my fellow Applephiles, IOS 10 is due out today, presumably around 9 am PST, 12 EST,

The Taco Bell USA and Canada file will not load in MS Street & Trips 2013. I have also tried to make a *.gpx file and it will not do that either. Any suggestions?

I came across this neat little map while browsing FDOT's website. I had no idea that there were so many traffic counting devices installed.
Have a happy and safe Labor Day...
Yup. Those college decals (and anything else you have) in your rear window are illegal. My Nephew got stopped for speeding and the Trooper reduced the speeding to a illegal rear window decal. He removed the decal in front of the Trooper and had the ticket signed accordingly. He still needs to go to court. It sounds like he got very lucky.
And it's a stiff $150 plus surcharge.
Samsung To Issue A Global Galaxy S7 Recall
Discussion in 'Android News' started by Jeffrey, Today at 3:51 AM.
I'm new to custom POIs and am having a problem with "Campgrounds and RV Parks Combined". When I use the Garmin POI loader to load this CVS file to my 1450 Nuvi, I get an error message that there is a problem with the second line of the file. I've successfully loaded several other CVS and GPX files to my nuvi, but this great list of campgrounds just won't go.
Everyone please take the time to read this article

In danger of losing your windmill?
Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).
Anything to keep your windmill alive.
