Power from your automobile's standard plug in

Going on 2 trips soon with 3 passengers. Each of them have movie CD player, so they will want power from the car. I would like power to my GPS also.

Will a 4-way (or three 2-way) power adapters have enough juice to run them? If not, how many can I do at once.

Windshield Law and the GPS Receiver

The article Laws | "Windshield Law and the GPS Receiver" on this website mentions the statute of Maine where "everything which is not forbidden is allowed.", with the comment "[4] An example of "everything which is not forbidden is allowed." No mention in the statutes regarding anything on the window, other than reflective tinting. Thus allowed."

COW badge

Why is there no COW badge? It is a honor to get one. Then everyone will see it and pay appropriate homage.

LA Kings - Stanley Cup Champions

Congratulations to the Loas Angeles Kings. After 45 years in the National Hockey League, they have won the Stanley Cup!

It looked GOOD on them grin

POI Names and Voice Identification

question Can the POI name be modified and changed by eliminating the following in the title: USA, Canada and other unnecessary items not required.

Example when the voice discription for Murphy_USA the disription becomes one messed up word.

This happens to most descriptions and they become jumbled and very confusing.

Need to make changes.
