Browsing/Banking when on the road

Greetings,

This message is prompted by Amazon's Daily Deal (the Bonus Deal) today ending at midnight. It's for either of two refurbed Chromebook models with lifetime 200MB/month free 4G access through T-Mobile. (Interesting: it's sold by Woot but Fulfilled by Amazon.)

Gps with traffic (chicago)

I've been a member for awhile and I've used both Garmin and Tomtom. I found out this week that Garmin no longer has traffic for Chicago are. It's only available in some suburbs, like Tinley Park, Niles, Mt.Prospect.I need a new Gps that gives me better coverage of the Chicago area.
I need this cause I drive a truck. I dont want something that need to use cell phone to work.

Correction to Speed Camera List

The speed camera listed as Speed 30-Jones Bridge & Montgomery in MD Chevy Chase is no more & should be removed from the list. This is in Montgomery County Maryland.

As the speed camera on the other side of the road was removed some time ago, so was this one when the road was narrowed & islands were installed to control speed better.

Thanks

Thanks for the access. I'm new to the GPS world but this site is very helpful and has saved me a lot of time stumbling around looking for files and info.

Combined US Campgrounds error?

Did anyone else have a problem with loading Combined US Campgrounds. I tried to load the Sept 10th version to no avail.

Looking for advice on a new GPS>>>

Here's the deal...I stopped buying Garmin some years back because of their lousy routing and internal memory issues. I switched over to TomTom and have been quite happy with the routing and updating issues but, recently, the hardware started to crap out...as in, the screen is now switching by itself and, of course, at the most inconvenient times (Garmin hardware has been rock solid for me).

Honoring and Praising Mahoney!

I just want to take time out in honoring and praising Mahoney. As most of us here know, he has probably the most number of files contributed--always neat, organized and regularly updated, and important ones at that. I don't know if he even sleeps at the rate he's going...hehehe. Personally, I never get bored downloading them. My toes and thumbs up!

Cleveland City Council voted unanimously to put traffic camera legislation on November ballot

Voters are dropping traffic caameras like fly's, not a good time to buy stock any of the companies that own them..

When is HOME not "home"?

I'm curious as to how many ppl set HOME to be their actual "home".
If u do, the reason u may not want to is that if ur car ever gets stolen u may come home to find that has been cleaned out also. For the moments after ur car is stolen the thieves know u are not home.

Mine is set about a block away. If I can't find it from there, I really shouldn't be driving.
