GPS - GIRL POSITIONING SYSTEM

Appearing in today's Washington Post is Andrea Sachs' article "GPS this -- Girl's Positioning System".

It is a humorous romp in which we could all possibly shoot holes.

How can I . . . (choose locations from map)

view a map with at least 750 locations and select a specific area of the map to choose the locations that I want to visit? Thank you in advance for your information.

Internet access

By taking advantage of the Bluetooth capabilities of both my cell phone and my GPS, I modified all my POI, GPX based, files so that I can make a call to a POI directly from the GPS.

And that is when it hit me:

HP TouchPad Warning

If you're in the market for a tablet you should avoid the HP TouchPad. HP just announced that they're discontinuing webOS and the TouchPad. So don't be fooled if you see these go on sale real cheap.

New to POI files

Hi there,

I am new to the world of POI, so sorry if this is a stupid questions...

I would like to find a single comprehensive source of POI files for gas stations in North America. Is it possible to get this anywhere, even on a commercial basis? I'd be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction!

Thanks!

The Whole Enchilada Tip of the day

If you enjoy eating and not just because you have to here is my tip of the day.

When embarking on a long trip I download several food related files from POI Factory, like Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, The best Thing I ever Ate and don’t forget the list from restaurants you like, Mexican, Oriental, Italian etc.

Recent solar flare may disrupt your GPS

http://www.cnn.com/2011/TECH/mobile/08/05/solar.flare.gps/in...

Quote:

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.

GPS could be affected by Solar Flares

Recent Solar Flares may cause your GPS to not function properly starting today, and may last for a day or so!
