LA Kings - Stanley Cup Champions

Congratulations to the Loas Angeles Kings. After 45 years in the National Hockey League, they have won the Stanley Cup!

After many years of skating on slush in their gold and purple pajamas and a few years of the Great One, the Kings finally get to hoist the Lord Stanley's trophy.

It looked GOOD on them grin

Thanks All

Finally earned the opportunity to download the Red Light & Speed camera files. Thanks to all who have been involved in compiling the database and combined files.

POI Names and Voice Identification

confused: Can the POI name be modified and changed by eliminating the following in the title: USA, Canada and other unnecessary items not required.

Example when the voice discription for Murphy_USA the disription becomes one messed up word.

This happens to most descriptions and they become jumbled and very confusing.

Need to make changes.

Can't access Where to "Address" on my 2460.

I just noticed on my Garmin 2460 that when I try to add an address by tapping "where to" and then "Address", all I get is "No map data avaialble". I did a hard reset and I still get the same results. So now I can't add an addrss or search for an address. Anyone else have this problem? Any sugestions? Everything else seems to work perfectly,including my maps,

The Mall Labyrinth

In downloading the most current POI file for Starbucks and reading the narrative associated with the update, I was reminded of one confusing issue that malls create.

Is the store in the mall or outside the mall?????.

Universities/Colleges Nationally

Does somebody have a list of all colleges, junior colleges and Universities in the country? I found one with highschools, etc., which is great, but it's too expansive for what I need, and I don't know how to filter out the HS's. Thanks for any help offered.

Epoxy suggestions?

It's a long story, but I need to glue a stainless steel metal VESA mounting plate to the plastic back of my GPS. The GPS will be subject to considerable twisting and turning, so I'm trying to figure out what the strongest epoxy out there is.
