State Laws For GPS Windshield Mounts

Thought I would start a thread where people could post the State Law on where a GPSr can be placed in the vehicle. I used the following site to start:

I clicked on my state and then Unlawful Vehicle Modifications. I then entered the traffic code into my browser and found the section on windshield obstructions...

Even better than red light cameras

This is new idea from Britain. Of course all of it for "citizen safety".


From article:
"Drivers face having their every move tracked by a 'spy in the car' black box.

Gps Saves more Fuel than Hybrids??

I have a theory, unproven but I think it is true. I know how many times I have driven out of the way a bit to find someplace...and I know there are way more GPS units being sold that hybrids....so I am saying I think GPS saves more fuel in the Big picture than the Hybrids.

Red Light Cameras and Security Cameras

I haven't been in Chicago for about 4 years and I have been relocated there for work and there are red light cameras and security cameras EVERYWHERE!!! Holy Crap! Talk about big brother! I get all stressed out because every light my GPS is sounding off because of a RLC there and I am worried if the light is a stale green and I'm going to be an unlucky victum of bad timing.

A Nuvi battery question...

Hi All,

The battery in my Nuvi 880 is a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, with a battery life up to 4 hours. The problem I’m experiencing is that the battery, after a full charge, is draining while not in use.

Rest Areas

I thought the poi alerts for rest areas told you whether the rest area had restrooms. When I was driving this past week on major roads, I didn't see anything that told me that. Was I mistaken, or is there something I didn't load right?


atlantis x350

New to this thing

I am so used to using a loran back when i was boating. Now i recently (10 Months) bought a motorhome and a Garmin 550. I sure do like the fact that it gets you there but the only complaint is some of the routes it takes you are pretty tight for a 42 ft. Hope to get better
