Red "Updated"

What does the red "Updated" mean on the 'Recent Posts" view?

There are no new replies, and it does not show up on my 'unread posts'. I did a search of the FAQs but found nothing.

Indianapolis Suggestions from the Community...

We are planning a long weekend trip to Indianapolis on the weekend after July 4th (Thurs. - Sun.). Having never been there before I was wondering if anyone familiar with the city would have some good suggestions for things to do or places to eat.

Oddball question regarding Google Maps

question I know this isn't directly related to POI's, but it is in a roundabout way. I've got one burning question and I'll explain it first...

...if I only had a brain...

I'm baaaaaaaaaccckkk

grin Hello all! It's been a LOOONG time since I was last here. I can see my old account has faded away, and that's understandable. Been so long since I've been here that I don't even remember who was running this place. Boy I used to contribute a lot of effort into generating POI's, but now with the new GPS units, custom POI's are rapidly become less and less user friendly.

...if I only had a brain...

Simulated speed demon

Sitting here in my Lazyboy simulating driving South on an Interstate.

I put in a new destination (to the North)which made vehicle head off an exit to go back the other way. On what looked like an on-ramp, there was no specified speedlimit. My vehicle sped up to over 80 mph.

Whoooeeee. evil
