The planned addition of a “Leap Second” this June may disrupt the Internet and satellite navigation systems.

Warning: Serious tech content.

Interesting read for those who follow the aspects of global time.

New user - question (delete existing files in the GPS folder?)

Just signed up here and want to be sure I have this right -- when I download the latest safety/cam file(s)do I need to delete the existing files in the GPS folder or can I just leave those in?

Thanks

RE: No COW This Week

Hmm, no COW this week. Does that make me a COY COW?

No COW This Week

We thought it would be nice to let Box Car have a full week of recognition as this year’s COY.

We’ll resume COW recognition's next Monday!

Congratulations CFP

I was not originally in favor of this, primarily because of how the four teams would be selected. However, I have to admit that it turned out well, even if I personally might have chosen another team for the fourth spot instead of Ohio State.

Congratulations to both Oregon and Ohio State for their impressive victories. As a neutral in this contest, here's to an exciting championship game!

All hands on deck!

OK folks, the holiday gifts have been unwrapped and tried out, especially now that we're through New Years as well. The GPS newbies (either new to GPS units or with a newer unit with more features than their ancient GPS) are back with their annual series of requests for help, etc. So if you're free, read and reply to help those with a new device.

Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – January 2015

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

2014 Contributor Of The Year!

Voting has ended, and our general maintainers have selected Box Car as POI Factory's Contributor of the Year for 2014!

Box Car is often one of the first members of our community to respond to new questions and to welcome visitors to our community.

What Custom POIs Do You Use?

As posted above, I am just wondering what Custom POIs people here use and why? I have been a member here for some time now and I find that I have weaned myself back to fewer and fewer as time goes on. I find that restaurants and gas stations are often already in my GPS mapping software.

Happy NEW YEAR

Have a nice Happy NEW YEAR and be careful with the drunken drivers, PLEASE DONT DRINK AND DRIVE and use your GPS.

No COW this week

As we continue to voting for the Contributor of the Year.

Vote now!!!

New Forum Software

A while back I recall some discussion about new forum software. Is it still in the works and if so is there any projected date to implement?

Anyone know?
