The March 2013 edition of Consumer Reports has a one page article evaluating Garmin, Tom Tom, & Magellan GPS models.
Not an earthshaking article but one of interest in comparing various models.
Dateline: Arlington Heights IL
So police devised a plan to figure out who was stealing them (tires) from cars on display at Arlington Nissan on Dundee Avenue, authorities said. Investigators fit a spare tire on an SUV with a GPS tracking device, authorities said.

GlobeTurtle found this image in Google Maps today. It looks like some sort of police activity involving a stopped big rig truck.

This week we are recognizing, Norwood!
Norwood is a busy newcomer who’s already contributed four new POI files to the site.
Thank you for your enthusiasm, Norwood, and welcome to POI Factory!
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've been out of the GPS scene for a year or two, due to the type of work I was doing.
Now have a new job which involves a LOT of driving. I'm a field service tech for restaurant equipment.
So when I get called I'd like to be able to input the next location into the unit/app and it figure out where to go to next. There are sometimes 4 or 5 places in the queue.
I've been wondering what peoples' experiences have been with Trapster and/or Waze, and the pros/cons of one compared to the other. In my non-scientific "tests", I have found them both to be useful sometimes, and both to be useless sometimes.
This may be a good app in a pinch for making calls see. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.magicjack&.....
I am editing a CSV file using excel and would like to know if there is a way to find duplications for a certin field?
Lets say I am looking for Duplation phone numbers and yes, I have a field for it. I know that I can sort it and then look at hem but I am sure there is a way to find the dups automatilly. to many numbers to view by hand.
Thanks in advance!
I have windows 7 I downloaded POI files then had warrenty issues with my DEZL 560. sent it in and got new one sow i downloaded POI file again not knowing the old one were still in my pc so now i have duplicat copies were can i find those on pc
Just for information.
I'm thinking of buying a free standing induction range.
3 times we have left the burner on on our stove. Luckily nothing was on top. The only range i know that turns off by itself is a induction range. Problem is these things are expensive and not a lot of ratings out there, not that many to choose from either. Any one have such an animal?
Seems that less owners are satisfied with their In-car Nav Systems than before, according to J. D. Powers.
I'll stick with my stand-alone 660, for now.
I split the Wal-Mart file into Sam's and Walmart. Is there a clever way of selecting and then deleting all the Sam's entries?
This week we are recognizing spokybob for his post in the organizing folders thread.
We are a diverse group of users and it was great to see all the members who stuck with the OP in working through the issue.
Spokybob’s gentle reminder to be polite was appropriate and well timed.
Thanks for the excellent example, spokybob!
Frequently a forum topic will include copy from a news article and / or a link to the article. I'm wondering if doing this is a violation of copyright law.
I don't mean this to be a criticism and I'm certainly not an attorney. I raise the issue only in the hope that we are not jeopardizing POI Factory.
Last week heavy rains (up to 9 inches) caused many land slides in the Smoky Mountain Region. 30 plus slides in Swain and Graham county alone. The good news, the roads are still intact with most of them. However, there are couple major slides and closures.
