In case you did not now xkcd, let me introduce you with a Google map comic:
Have a good week.
Miss POI: The Cat Scale Poi's are ok But they would be a lot better if the City,State,Zip and Phone Number was in The Poi Also
Just A Thought
This week we are recognizing DRMCMTR.
DRMCMTR, You have been my eyes for the Chicago, IL red light camera project. When I get a new report in, I always send you the info for verification before adding it. I really appreciate how much you have been helping me keep up with this busy city.
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.
I just became aware of the updated HTC Touch Cruise Footprints
http://www.htc.com/www/press.aspx?id=81678 I am not sure if this will be an iPhone killer or a Garmin Nuvifone killer. HTC Footprints has geo-tagging functionality and has an accompanying car cradle. Actually, if someone were to install Garmin Mobile XT software, it should be very similar to the Nuvifone.
Companies now make GPS systems to help the blind and visually impaired travel independently.

All it says is: Get a widescreen, touchscreen portable GPS for less than $180!
It doesn't say what brand and model it is and won't say until it opens.
These deals are usually very good and worth watching. They tend to sell out quickly.
I had occasion to use one of the POI files downloaded from this site today and got a long winded (and humorous) surprise. I knew there was an Albertson's market in the area but not exactly where so punched up the custom Albertson's POI. I chose the nearest and was immediately rewarded with instructions to: "Albertsons 451-9825 15660 North Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard".
I copied all my Nuvi files over to my home computer just so I would have a backup for safety purposes. With creating folders for custom POI files, deleting the foreign languages, etc, I thought it was the prudent thing to do. I also keep my important computer data backed up online.
I was just wondering who else backs up their GPS and what other safety precautions do you take? Thanks
I just wanted to post a thank you for whoever changed the POI factory software to no longer say that a subject is required whenever responding to another post in a thread. It now will use the first few words of your post as a "subject" if none is provided.
New Electronic Technology and theft
I wonder if we will see a US version of the Garmin Nuvi 900T? Actually, the Youtube clip shows that it has wifi also!
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.
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.
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.
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:
Below is an email that I received from Navteq when I submitted a POI correction. Note the dates of when the form was submitted for the correction and the date they sent the email.

Dear Map Reporter,
Thank you for your recent Map Report.
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."
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).
