Coconino National Forest Motor Vehicle Use Map

[Updated 4/16/2014]

Greetings,

The 2012 discussion of the existence of (and need for) Motor Vehicle Use Maps has been discussed in the thread:

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/36274

The older thread discusses why the Forests are now coming up with Motor Vehicle Use maps rather than the old standard "all forest" maps.

A question for you Zumo users

I have recently become a scooter rider (a Honda Helix clone to match my lady friend's Helix) Both are 250 cc bikes. We have matching helmets with Bluetooth intercom capability (Sena SMH10). The bike to bike and telephone features work great. I have mounted our older Garmin GPS's, mine is a 760 and hers is a 350.

How old is your street view

I was looking at my address on GoogleMaps today using street view. I realized that I could see a pile of trash that would let me date the image to the spring of 2008 (some renovation work).

Is there anything unique to your street view that would let you date it?

If so, when was the shot taken?

Google Glass -- your car is the killer app

A story over in Wired that I think nails it--

Your car is the killer app for Google Glass -- not only for gps/nav, but extending into other aspects.

New Car Options

Almost all of the new model cars and trucks have available options for navigation systems. I must admit some of the capabilities and integration points are tempting. I still have not seen any with the ability for the user to add POI and update maps for a reasonable cost. I may have missed something as the capabilities of the offered systems change quite often.

new GPS idea that could be potentially very useful

After my previously posted here unpleasant experience of being pulled over by a cop while driving lawfully on a highway, and being falsely accused of "swevering", I have thought about getting a dash cam to protect myself.

Seeing these videos make me even more motivated to get one:

POI Suggestions for newbie

Can anyone who lives in Minnesota recommend some POI files that will be helpful for finding things that someone who knows nothing about Minnesota will find helpful.

In particular, the Twin Cities Metro Area.

Thanks.

Phony Speed Cameras in MD

There is an article in the Washington Post this morning concerning the town of Laurel, MD where the local police have installed a decoy speed camera - a traffic camera box with only sandbags in them. It was installed near Laurel Elementary School. The real one was installed elsewhere. DC, Prince George's & Montgomery County say that none of theirs are fakes.

New to the site and could use some guidence

Greetings and Hello to all.

anyone subject of a fishing traffic stop before?

I was on a road trip recently with a friend, driving at the speed limit on cruise control in a new rental car with less than 5k miles on the odo. There was hardly any traffic so it was a nice drive for a while.
