POIEdit Question

When I open a gpx file in POIEdit, I only see Description, Lat and Lon. If the gpx file has additional information, I don't see it. When I save as csv, the additional info is gone. I can open up the original gpx file and see the additional info so know it's there, just can't see in POIEdit and won't save into csv format.

Anyone Had This Problem? (nuvi stopped working)

I was cruising down Hwy75 South, and my trusty 660 told me it had lost satellite reception. I was going about 65 mph and my little car just froze, and stopped in the of the road. It remained that way. After returning home I called Garmin Tech. Support, and they worked with it for about an hour. Still nothing. Finally the tech. told me I could send it in for repair, costing $250.

Membership Question

Miss Poi, Retention Deparment Chairperson;
(Just what you need a new Title or do you already have it)
I noticed that my membership will be up in about seven weeks. When will I get my bill for next year? Do you charge it automatically on my c.c. that I used last year? Please advise.

POI Factory recognizes its top contributors of 2008

When I researched the COY awards for this year, these are some of the facts and figures I looked at. I looked at many different things in addition to these numbers. I looked at the quality, time and energy put into each project and that is how I came to my decision of Motorcycle Mama and ScottK.

The following members had activity in each and every week of 2008:

Common sense tromps technology

An interesting article on cell phone use, texting, and using a GPS technology to block them while driving.

"Technology to stop phone use in cars flawed"

A few quotes I found interesting form a safety expert.

"More and more, we see any solution is, in large part, education and awareness, parents getting involved."

North Carolina Civil War Trails

I recently uploaded a file that shows the location of Civil War Historical markers around Morehead City. This is an incomplete subset of all possible historical markers in North Carolina, which means that it would be a "work in progress". My hope is that others would be able to add to this list (for historical markers that are near where they live).

Cell phone SIM card question

I realize that this forum has nothing to do with cell phones but I have noticed a lot of techies here so I'm hoping one of you can help me.

I have dropped my contract with a large national provider (sounds like AT&P) razz My girlfriend still has a contract with them but the display on her phone has gone black, she doesn't want to commit to another two year contract to get a new phone.

Does your GPS slouch on its mount?

There are a lot of out there that are concerned when our units slouch on their mounts and don't sit or stand straight. Well, technology has once again come to the rescue! How many of you will be ordering one of these to alert you when your unit isn't doing it's best?

FM Traffic Receiver versus XM Traffic

I just purchased a new car and am adding in-dash Navi. The problem is I can't decide which to add for traffic, I can use either one. Has anyone here used both types of receivers that can tell me why one is better than the other? I have a SP c550 and I have the FM receiver which I love. I love that I now have a lifetime subscription. Why would XM radio/traffic be better than the FM receiver?

(Avoid Traffic) MSN® Direct Services or Total Traffic Network

I'm trying to decide if I should buy the MSN® Direct Receiver / GDB 50 or just subscribe to Total Traffic Network. Has anyone tried the MSN Direct Service or NAVTEQ Traffic™?? How is it??
