How much free memory is needed?

At the present I have only 3MB of free internal memory on my 1450LMT. Is this enough free space for the unit to function properly?

The Red Lightmare

Chicago's NBC News gives a good investigation into the Red Light Cameras in the city. The 'winning' intersection? I-55 and Cicero. One single intersection generated over 20,000 tickets and $2 million in fines.

This week we are recognizing Frugalscotty!

Frugalscotty is a relative newcomer to our community. He recently suggested we start a bargain thread. I know our users are generally the first to spot deals and are up-to-date on the latest accessories so I think it will be a great way to share that with one another year round and not just over the holidays.
