Women's World Cup

Congrats to Japan for winning the women's world soccer cup - on penalty kicks, and to the USA for making it an exciting final.

Hello to the people of this forum.

I'm new to the forums specifically, though I've had an account with this site for quite longer. And it's been quite some time from making an account here and this topic here. Which seems somewhat wrong.

So again to reiterate, hello folks!

Hello and Welcome...

Well... as it states, Hello.

We just purchased a Garmin Nuvi-1450.

I just figured out how to get the POI files with sound and custom icon installed.

Now I'm looking to learn more about creating the custom POI files; however, the discussions and instructions are occationally disjointed. SO, can someone here point me in the right direction?

Is anyone subscribed to EZ-Pass in a different state than the one they live in?

Hi,

We live in Maryland, where O'Malley started charging us a $1.50/month "administrative fee" for absolutely nothing, so we canceled our EZ-pass. We use it enough that we'd like to pick one up again but only if there is no fee involved, so I've been looking at neighboring states' EZ-Pass programs.

Dell Streak (Mini 5) As Vehicle GPS

I am considering buying a used Dell Streak (Mini 5), buying the vehicle mount, adding ALK CoPilot navigation onto a micro SD, and using this as a vehicle GPS. Can anybody here tell me if that would make a good vehicle GPS? Also, I would probably get it carrier subsidy unlocked and install a T-Mobile prepaid SIM card as a backup. Plus, the T-Mobile SIM card should allow access to a few websites.
