new here

Hi all just getting into this GPS stuff and found this site. Seems to have a ton of info here

State Farm's "Drive Safe & Save"

Greetings,

Is anyone familiar with or an actual user of State Farm's Drive Safe & Save program which uses either OnStar or SYNCH--or for those like me with neither, the separate In-Drive.com device?

http://www.in-drive.com/sf/

It seems to offer much besides potential insurance rate reductions including much of the info offered by Garmin's EcoRoute HD device.

Lockheed Martin powers up its first GPS III satellite, stays on track for 2014

Flicking the switch clears it for testing and keeps the GPS III program's 2014 launch window within view. More importantly, the activation takes us one step closer to improved GPS accuracy for civilians and soldiers alike.

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

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?
