Trucker specific forum

Hello all: This is my first post and my question is, when will the poifactory begin listing all of the truck driver gps in their columns? Perhaps I overlooked this feature?


Ebay / Paypal Loophole

Scary store here. Someone sold a brand new iPhone 5 on Ebay. The buyer has 20+ positive feedbacks. Less than a month later, the buyer filed a chargeback claiming the item not as described. The buyer gets to keep the iPhone and gets the money back (basically... free iPhone 5). This is a headsup for those who sell expensive stuff on Ebay.

Waterproof 50WLED Motion Detect Security Lighting

I've been looking for this sort of thing, and simply have not been able to find one in operation in a store. Want to examine it before purchase...
I've also read lots of bad reviews on these things, but I can't determine if the bad reviews were due to bad installs or bad product....

Has anyone a success story regarding this sort of thing?

2689LMT That we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

In danger of losing your windmill?

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

Washington, DC Speed Cameras

The news tonight says the DC County Council will likely reduce fines for speeding from $125 to $75 per instance.

That was the good news.

The bad news is that the Council is likely to approve "dozens more cameras" all over the District. They meet next week to decide.

Anyone want to guess what they decide???

GPS that allows customization

I'm looking for a portable GPS unit that would allow me to program my own route restrictions.

I drive a coach bus, and currently there are no GPS units that conform to what I need. I'm trying to find a unit where I could do my own road restrictions.

The one that I presently use, is the Garmin StreetPilot 7200, but that has been discontinued for a while.

Any ideas?

OEM GPS devices

I'm in the early stages of thinking about buying my next car. I was looking at the Subaru Outback with Eyesight. However, you can't get Eyesight without getting the Suburu GPS, and according to Subaru Customer Service, there is no mechanism for importing POIs into a Subaru GPS.
