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).
Is anyone familiar with the Navigon 8100T. A buddy of mine is looking at it and think it has Garmin beat!!
I am not so sure!
This week we are recognizing AZJeffH and Nicko99.
AZJeffh, You have invested really great energy into the Phoenix Metro area project. We now have some great outdoor files for people to enjoy.
Nicko99, Great job so far on the Les Schwab Tire project. I love the new icon you sent in. I also appreciate all the other files you have been creating.
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 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) 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.
just curious, i would like to know what people do for a living here,i myself,am a union operating engineer(heav equipment operator)
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?
If posted before - sorry I didn't find it.
Has anybody seen this bit of news?
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?
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??
Just heard about this on the news what do you all think.
Just wondering what most people do.
Faced with crushing deficits, depressed tax revenues, and a grim outlook for 2009, states across the country are taking another hard look at taxing interstate sales completed on the web. Once a strict "no tax" zone, those walls are now on the verge of crumbling.
for those interested:
This should be real interesting,in the near future!
Down 24% in dollar sales, but up 5% in unit sales. It shows people were going after the bargains, but not buying as many of the higher end units.
Navteq must have just updated their maps database. On Microsoft's Live Maps site they are using the Navteq map database and now for the first time my subdivision and the one next to us are finally included. TeleAtlas maps on Google maps have had them both for months.
I would think that this is the new database that will be available next week when Garmin rolls out the lifetime maps option.
What happened to user generated traffic?
I wonder if this could possibly pass into law considering how attached many of us are to our cell phones. If it does, are GPS units next?
