GPS creator Brad Parkinson calls for tougher penalties

"Penalties for jamming GPS networks need to be co-ordinated worldwide as their importance grows, the technology’s chief architect says."

"On top of increasing the penalties for owning and using GPS jammers, Parkinson argues that manufacturers of receivers, particularly in the maritime industry, need to start toughening up their devices."

Extensive FM Traffic Greater Toronto Area

Just wondering if there are other FM traffic sites my TT can use in GTA. I noticed that traffic update in only up to Mississauga if you are heading west.

If there is how do you switch from the default set by TT.

Redlight/Speed Cameras

The entry on the main page saying the last update is from 2/12/2014 is not correct. They have been updated to 2/19/2014 - just look further.

OOPS. It must have just been updated on the main page. Sorry!

Red light camera accidents

A recent study shows major accidents are down at red light camera intersections, but rear end collisions are up. I guess from everyone slamming on the brakes to avoid a ticket.

Programmatically download POI Icons

Is there a way to programmatically download Icons similar to the poisync method used for POI files?

Regards,
Jim

Old Google Maps

The old Google Map now doesn't have "Send to GPS" anymore. The only option is "Send to Car" and then a list of cars shows up.

Google is getting worse about a bunch of things not just map app.
The "too big to fail" doesn't apply to user's opinions and my opinion is Google sucks more every day!

Bing bazinga!

In the process of updating my Rosati's Pizza POI, I spotted a "location tweak" in the data on their web site. So, I took a look at it in Google Earth Street View. It didn't look much like a location for a restaurant, but Google's street view dated back to September '09.
