Baby, it's cold outside!

Here in Mentor, Ohio, it's -17 degrees outside. What's it where you are?

EPE

I tried to use EPE today to update the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores POI file that I maintain.

Immediately upon loading the file I get a "script" error.

It happens as EPE is trying to display the Google Map in the lower left pane or when doing geocoding on a new POI. I am wondering if Google has changed something that Turbo was relying on in the API

Is anyone else having this problem?

Why Garmin?

It's been a few years since I have used my old Nuvi 350.I have been using my Nexus 4. However my wife just purchased a new car and I would like to get her a new GPS.

I am only interested in a large screen with traffic.

Is Garmin still the best choice for these basic needs?

Distracted Driving Device Allows GPS functionality While Driving

http://gpsworld.com/distracted-driving-device-allows-gps-fun...

How many here would consider adding this device to their vehicle?

I suspect it won’t be long before the government requires auto makers to install such a product on all new vehicles.

GPS FOR TRUCKERS

Anyone have any idea what is a good GPS for truckers? I read a thread on this but the last comment made was in 2012. Id hope they have much better GPS units out now for Truck Drivers

More Consequences of Ethanol

I have always believed that the ethanol mandate is a bad thing. Ethanol costs more to produce than gasoline, and consumes more energy than it yields when all inputs are considered. Not to mention the cost of cleaning a fuel system when it has been sitting in your gas tank for more than a couple of weeks during humid weather.

Errrors

Here's an interesting news report. It should be read by those who worry overly much when their GPS makes a mistake—and for those who worry overly much about those who overly much worry about GPS mistakes.
