Where will you buy your next gps?

Without a doubt, I think of amazon.com, but I am resistant to the collection of sales tax, which begins 7/1/13 in my state. They are so big imho they will collect in all states sometime in the near future.

Where will you buy your next unit?

Rv gps

I'm trying to figure out the differences between the following gps units; Garmin RV 760 LMT $400, Magellan Roadmate RV9165T $400, Roadmate RV9165T-LM $350, Roadmate RV9145 $350, Roadmate RV9145-LM $320, Rand McNally RVND 7720-LM $350?

New Google Maps

I am testing The new Google Maps. I sure do like them so far. They have the poi on the map and not on the side. Still discovering stuff...

Stolen iPads can be found

Two iPads were stolen from neighboring homes here in Dubuque. One owner activated "Find my Mac" on his device. It indicated it was near the harbor. Police followed the lead and found one occupied vehicle. Meantime the owner activated the sound alert which allowed the officer to check the vehicle where they found the two iPads plus three others and a GPS that had been reported.

Anniversary

I just realized I've passed the three year mark on this site. I've found it (for the most part) helpful, informative and useful. My thanks to everyone for the development and maintenance of the great POI files I use.

Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? – June 2013

In danger of losing your windmill?

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

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

Feature request: How many members have my POI file as a "Favorite File"?

A nice little perk for maintainers would be to display the number of members who have selected a POI file as one of their "Favorite Files". If it was publicly viewable then it would have the added bonus of being like the "n users 'Like/+1' this" on other sites.

Dumb question re: GPS trackers

So, I saw an ad for a GPS tracker on Craigslist, and it got me thinking...

I've had problems with satellite reception under tree canopy, or boat canvas, etc. The newer units are much better, but still.

If the Fuzz sticks a GPS tracker underneath your car, held by a magnet, which is my understanding of how it works, how does the GPS receive satellite signal?

Or: Roundabout Gone Wild Part 2
While planning a trip to Milwaukee area I found this:
I-43N Exit 57. N42.94920 W88.10892
While checking out the La Quinta Inn, I discovered a roundabout that gave me two chances to get T-Boned. Just to the north on Moorland Road is another roundabout that looks like trouble.
Here is a quote from local paper.

Chrysler Uconnect 8.4N

I have a Chrysler 300 with a Chrysler Uconnect 8.4N. I cannot get it to take any POI or Extras. Is there any instruction that would me how to work this unit? I have had to Garmin's before and have not had any problems installing POIs. It keeps say No Supported Files. Anybody out there want to tell me what dumb thing I am missing?
