Looking to replace my 5+ year old Nuvi 360

Hi

My Nuvi 360 still works, but find it a bit slow, running out of memory for the latest map updates.

Seems like there are lots of options out there and prices have certainly come down since I paid $500 for my current unit.

I was thinking of getting one with lifetime maps and traffic like the Garmin 2595LMT.

Is the traffic feature worth it? What are the pros and cons?

Raiders of the Lost K-Mart

The Consumerist often has entries labeled "Raiders of the Lost Walmart", where intrepid readers send in pictures of obsolete items that still languish on Walmart shelves years after they were discontinued, and oftentimes priced close to their original retail.

You Folks Are Good

I try to keep up with reporting Red Light or Speed Cameras in my near D.C./MD area. While heading out to lunch yesterday, I saw a speed camera being installed on North Portal Drive, DC. I went back today with my GPS to take a location. Lo & behold, you already had it in the database! I guess I never saw it go in earlier.

A big bravo to the team.

Civil versus Criminal Law

In another thread (http://www.poi-factory.com/node/40013), Steevo worried that his discussion with me was hijacking that thread.

Since He was taking exception with the fact that there is no right in civil law to "face your accuser", I thought we might continue in a new thread.

Let me begin with this

Dash Cam for Safety

Anyone have experiences with dash cams, either front recording or dual front and back? I started looking into them and it appears it isn't a matured market yet? Trying to find a good and reliable model.

Logging road strikes again

Here we go again:

Monthly Bargains/Recommendations (October 2013)

Rather than having multiple threads, like these:
http://www.poi-factory.com/node/39232
http://www.monstercable.com/screenclean/monster_screenclean....

We thought we would merge the monthly GPS Deals/ Bargains and add recommendations.

Please feel free to share any legitimate recommendations for products that might be helpful to our user community.

Remember, sharing is caring!

Anything to keep your windmill alive.
