Just getting back.....

Have been otherwise occupied (health issues) for the last couple of years. Didn't realise how much I missed this site!. Have just got a new Garmin Nuvi 2495, so will probably be downloading several files.

Do You Remember

The Red Lightmare

Chicago's NBC News gives a good investigation into the Red Light Cameras in the city. The 'winning' intersection? I-55 and Cicero. One single intersection generated over 20,000 tickets and $2 million in fines.

This week we are recognizing Frugalscotty!

Frugalscotty is a relative newcomer to our community. He recently suggested we start a bargain thread. I know our users are generally the first to spot deals and are up-to-date on the latest accessories so I think it will be a great way to share that with one another year round and not just over the holidays.

Different voices

I run the Intelliroute TND 720, does anyone know how to get different voices, mine only has 2 different ones.

Links In Posts

I know some links to articles and other web pages can sometimes be rather long. Some users like to use "Tiny URL" (or others) in their posts.

Here's the problem:

Windows 7 Changing file extensions/properties

I have Windows 7. I am trying to create a new POI file. (I know how to format the POI file); however, Windows 7 apparently does not allow me to save the WORDPAD file as a CSV file. How do I do it? Some help please...

This week we are recognizing Mahoney!

Yes, Mahoney gets recognized frequently, for good reason! Not only does he maintain about 155 files, he updated over 30 of them in the last month!
Besides being an outstanding general maintainer, last Wednesday I had two wisdom teeth pulled and he was extremely patient with me and the time it took for me to assist him with a request.

Garmin Dog on dogshaming.com is not ashamed

Any other dog owners have this problem??
http://www.dogshaming.com/2013/02/garmin-dog/

BTW, dogshaming.com is a circa six-month old website where people post photos of dogs in need of Puritan-style shaming. Some of the photos and captions are very funny. Worth a visit.

BE WARY: Map Updates often Slow to Conform to RIGHT-HAND-EXIT Standard of New Construction

Everybody has probably seen this sort of thing happening now: There is new construction going on in an area, and that new construction changed the layout of exit(s) or fork(s) in such a way that, previously, exiting was counter-intuitive, so that, say, if travelling on Route Y, in order to:

Change to Route X --> bear (or exit) Left
Continue on Rte Y --> bear (or exit, or stay) Right
