In Florida it is now illegal to text while driving. It is also illegal to text someone who you know is driving. I wonder if it is illegal to program a GPS with a destination such as an address. It is similar to texting. You take your eyes off the road to enter data. My Garmin states that I should not program it while driving. I have to agree before it starts up. But is it illegal?

Latest ruling saying California ban on cell phone use does not include using map function -
Reuters report on a recent GPS satellite launch.
This week we are recognizing, Alandb!
Alandb has been a member of POI Factory for over 5 years.
You will often find him in the troubleshooting discussions sharing his thoughts and experiences. He also maintains the Garmin Maps | Cloning Method FAQ, which he recently updated.
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
Today is JM's day of birth! Happy Birthday, Jonathan!
I just find this website,get my second Garmin GPS and ready to learn from all masters in here
I wo't have much knowledge to share on this forum as I am fairly new to this, but I appreciate there being a site like this where I can learn from all of you! Hello from Tucson, AZ!
"Penalties for jamming GPS networks need to be co-ordinated worldwide as their importance grows, the technology’s chief architect says."
"On top of increasing the penalties for owning and using GPS jammers, Parkinson argues that manufacturers of receivers, particularly in the maritime industry, need to start toughening up their devices."
Just wondering if there are other FM traffic sites my TT can use in GTA. I noticed that traffic update in only up to Mississauga if you are heading west.
If there is how do you switch from the default set by TT.
The entry on the main page saying the last update is from 2/12/2014 is not correct. They have been updated to 2/19/2014 - just look further.
OOPS. It must have just been updated on the main page. Sorry!
From today's WaPo:
This week we are recognizing bdhsfz6!
Bdhsfz6 has been a member of POI Factory for over five years.
We selected him this week because for the awesome work he’s doing creating and maintaining bike trail POIs.
I hope one day to make it out that way to at least check out the Great Allegheny passage and I appreciate the diversity these files bring to our community!
A recent study shows major accidents are down at red light camera intersections, but rear end collisions are up. I guess from everyone slamming on the brakes to avoid a ticket.
Is there a way to programmatically download Icons similar to the poisync method used for POI files?
This week we are recognizing, KenSny!
KenSny is a relative newcomer to POI Factory, but he’s jumped right into the community, sending me enforcement camera info for his area, participating in forum discussions and most recently diving into creating and maintaining POI files!
It had a good run. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/end-support-help

The old Google Map now doesn't have "Send to GPS" anymore. The only option is "Send to Car" and then a list of cars shows up.
Google is getting worse about a bunch of things not just map app.
The "too big to fail" doesn't apply to user's opinions and my opinion is Google sucks more every day!
