Can you Imagine this happening months ago? (Drive-Up Liquor Stores)

The State Run Liquor Stores... ABC Stores, are installing intercoms... Purchases will be done via Drive-up in the near future!

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

anybody have their home reassesed last year?

Where I live the houses were reassessed and mine doubled.

It's unprecedented because I've lived here since 2002.

My buddy said you had better hope the mil rate is adjusted or your s******.

I didn't do anything illegal, have no improvements, etc.

2020 Census

I received my Census 2020 login ID in the mail today. I went to the .gov website, logged in and submitted my information. It was very simple to navigate and the website worked fine for me. With only two people in my household, it only took about 10 minutes fill in the information and submit it.

Will We See Some "Fire Sale" Prices On GPS And Other Devices In The Future?

I have read that some people are speculating that certain retailers will have some "fire sale" prices on certain devices after COVID-19 is behind us. While I am certainly no economist, I can understand why some people are predicting that.

Getting a location recorded while moving

Ever been driving down a road and see something that the location of would be useful to someone here at POI Factory or for your personal use and you were unable to write it down due to to safety reasons or the lack of a pen and paper?

Anyone killing travel due to Covid-19?

I won the lottery for a trip to The Wave this summer. I will be going! I am driving though, so my chance of exposure should be lower than those flying or riding in a tin tube with the general public. Let's hear from the crowd.

Striving to make the NYC Metro area project the best.

issue with my Nuvi 2595

Hello all, I've had an issue with my Nuvi 2595 for some time now, comes and goes.
While plugged in and GPSing, it will sometimes switch off, then come back on in computer mode then back to normal and repeat. Sometimes it takes a few miles before it starts doing the above but it's frustrating.
I've tried different cords.

do you ever learn something new, where you didn't know it for decades?

Example, with the coronavirus panic, my wife bought some stuff at Costco last week.

Since it was all food, prepared food, and one other item, toilet paper, I said hmmmmmm......I see that there's a big "A" next to the prepared food, other than that, no sales tax. And this is PA.

There is no sales tax on toilet paper in Pennsylvania. I did not know that and have lived here since 1999.

Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – March 2020

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

is there a strategy / parking authority

I have always heard of this concept of "chalking" tires. Never actually saw it, sounds primitive. I mean we have zebra scanners with OCR and smartphones, etc.

But I saw a vehicle yesterday in W Phila with very clear marks on the front tire--one at 5 o'clock, one at 7, and one at 10. Does getting one at 2 somehow mean tow?

The street is not metered, maybe there is a time limit.
