On Thursday, the sun unleashed a massive solar flare (see video of the flare and how its effects have been moving toward Earth). Solar flares can disrupt radio communications, including devices that use Global Positioning System technology, such as cell phones, airplanes and car navigation systems.
Recent Solar Flares may cause your GPS to not function properly starting today, and may last for a day or so!

Prior to leaving on a 1500 mile trip with our RV, I updated my Rest Area POI. Prior to doing this, I was receiving a notification of a Rest Area two miles out. After downloading the updated version I received no alerts. When I went to "Extras" the Rest Area POI file was there and if I went to a specific RA, it did show that the POI did have an alert setting.
What did I do wrong?
This week we are recognizing ShenanigansNZ.
