Europe Maps and POIs

We are going to Italy next month and just ordered the Garmin Europe maps on DVD (yes I know they are almost a year old). I was planning on putting the the maps on my SD card. Has anyone experienced any problems with maps on both the unit (nuvi in my case) and the SD card?

when you're being watched and recorded

It's suprising how many aren't used to the notion that all of your actions are videoed, everything you say recorded, and your actions tracked. So what, technology makes it so?!

For example, when I visit a vendor, my pic is taken, my index finger is scanned, and I'm asked if I'm a US Citizen. If any of the above is not done, then I will not gain entry.

This week we are recognizing David King!

David King has been a member for a little under a year.

He’s been helpful in sending us some wav files and has helped several members update locations.
He pops into the forums on occasion, when he has experience to share, and he recently updated several of the POI files he maintains.

Charging GPS units

I do not travel much that I need to use my GPS unit for, so it pretty much sits on a shelf slowly loosing it charge. So when I do decide to use it I have to charge it up from a low battery status. Seeing that Lithium batteries only have so many full charging cycles would it be better to keep it attached to my USB port on my computer all the time to keep it fully charged?

I purchaged my Garmin about 3-4 years ago but didn't register the device. Do I still eligible for Lifetime maps update or I screw up with having free updates?

Trigon has been a POI Factory member for over 5 years.
I look forward to his weekly check-ins as they are always thoughtful. He takes time to congratulate other COW’s and to add his experience here and there in the forums.

Thank you, Trigon!
