Lookin for Palm Springs --> Laughlin, Nevada --> St George, Utah trip suggestions

Within the next two weeks, we're thinking about doing a Palm Springs --> Laughlin, Nevada --> St George, Utah road trip. Any suggestions on what to see/do along the way (for a family of four, two adults and two kids)

Usually, we let
1. Offbeat Tourist Attractions - US File + other attraction POI files
2. Various places to eat POI files
3. Local events
help us figure out what to do.

Vince Nuvi 350

Hello folks, new here

Just wanted to say hi, got Garmin Nuvi 2495 a few days ago and starting to check out the features.

Thanks.

A brief history of GPS

It all started with Sputnik. What seemed at the time like a major defeat in the Cold War, turned out to be the catalyst for one of the most important technologies of the 20th century, and maybe the 21st.

What Kind of Monthly Post

What kind of monthly post would people like to see here, The Birthday Poast has been poated every month for a year and now I think most of of the active ones have posted at least once in that year.

How would one be
"Glad I Woke Up Today" or
"Didn't find my obituary in the Paper Today so enjoy the Day? wink grin laugh out loud

This week I would like to recognize MikeSid.

MikeSid helps keep me up-to-date with the southern MD speed cameras.

Recently, he went out of his way to drive by several locations that were missing speed limits to get the actual posted speed limits.

This member may not post much in the forums, but his efforts help us assist many.

Continuing Very Slow Downloads

Download speeds for POI's continue to be at a snails pace. I just downloaded the Walmart POI (gpx) at an unbelievable 6 KB/sec & it took more than 10 minutes.

There must be some kind of problem since I was not experiencing this last week at all.

Has Jon made any headway in identifying the problem?

Thanks.

Wow, the forum is slow.

Why is the forum so slow for the last week, or two? I have a 10/1 connection, and this is the only site that crawls to load.

It's worse than my 3G connection on my phone. What's up, JM? Were changes made to servers?

Power cord problem

My nuvi 2595 won't turn on today. The red light on the power cord is on, but there is no power to the unit. My husband uses it for his work. There is a long slim rectangular piece ner the end of the cord just before the end that plugs into the unit. Is there a fuse there?

Federal Appeals Court Calls Visual Speed Estimate Absurd

Police officer should be physics teacher since there are good in visual estimation. Physics rule to calculate speed of an object the formula is Avg speed= distance travel/ time of travel. Not based on visual estimate maybe I should used this argument with my high school physics teacher. wink
