Need help with Extra POI Editor

I had EPE on my desktop. Today I opened it up, but could not make any changes to my files. I kept getting a "DING" noise when I clicked on "New poi" or even an entry I had already saved. As anyone else experianced this?

From CNET: Does It Still Make Sense To Buy A GPS?

They're slimmer, more capable, and more affordable than ever before, but should you bother buying one when your smartphone can get you where you're going?

Traffic Updates - are they ever accurate?

From the several recent GPS's capable of traffic updates that I had in the recent 5 years or so, I've got an impression that their information is inaccurate in about 90%.

Updating the Choice Hotels file

I am planning a trip to Dollywood in August. While going through the Choicehotels POI folder, I noticed a few hotel coordinates were off. Also checked some others in Extra POI Editor. Does anyone know how I can contact the maintainer for this file?

Using GPS Beyond Simple Navigation

I have been a scanner owner for a number of years as well as a GPS user for several years now. I have been interested by the Uniden Home Patrol HP-1 that has the ability to connect to a GPS to select radio frequencies and talkgroups for monitoring. Which leads me to this post. Does anybody here see any other opportunities to use GPS for similar applications in other areas?

Cookies

Have been having a problem lately for the past two days.
When I try to log in, my pasword is not accepted and have had to request a new log-in.
I have set both password and confirmation and each time I log out and try to re log-in, it is not accepted. I have removed all previous cookies from poi-factory, so will retry and see what happens.
Cross my fingers..
Anyone else having similar problem?

Surfers and downloaders beware

The U.S. government just broke up a real humdinger of a scam.

The scammers created a virus that would turn off your virus updates and it would re-direct your browser to their servers that in turn would direct you to bogus sites that were loaded with ads that they got money for - whether you clicked on them or not.

It pays to hear all the facts, before making a decision.

Would You Consider An iPad Mini With Garmin StreetPilot Onboard Instead Of A Traditional GPS?

I continue to read reports that Apple will release an iPad Mini http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57414553-37/new-ipad-mini-... If it happens and if the price were reasonable, would you consider buying that and adding Garmin StreetPilot Onboard https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=389&pID=98479 in lieu of a regular, traditional GPS?

Cameras on route # 3o

Is anybody familiar with route #30 in the town of Lancaster PA. Recently I found myself driving through this quaint little town in the middle of Amish country in pennsylvania. I was shocked and amazed to see a cameras installed every 100,150,from each other. Yet my gps said nothing. they are not new according to a waiter in a local restaurant the've been there more than 6 months.
