Well I took the plunge and bought my first gps last week, a Garmin Nuvi 855 from Amazon for $119. My keen since of direction has failed me a couple of times this year, so it was time. Wow! All I can say is I had no idea what all these things can do, finding this site and its resources and the ability to do the custom poi is great.
Just wondering what everyone got for good deals on Black Friday. I got a great set of Calphalon knives for 1/3 the price.
This week we are recognizing Spera.
This member is located in France and is one of our funniest comedians. He has had me laughing all week. He has a great sense of humor and keeps everything nice and entertaining in the forums.
Thank you so much for sharing your delightful personality with us. It is a pleasure to have you in our community.
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

I've noticed lately that several intersections where there used to be a regular pattern of red light; green turn arrow; green light now seem to be skipping the turn arrow phase if there isn't a car sitting on the sensor area when the lights are changing.
Has anybody traded in their GPS for a factory installed
Like the one in the Ford Flex?
I am new to this but hope someone can help.
I will be driving back to Milwaukee from Laurel Md with granddaughter who will deploy this Dec. She has driven from our house to Andrews AFB, but got stuck going through Chicago.
On a trip to Royal Oaks Mi last year, I mis read our "google instructions" and my daughter and i got stuck in Chicago.
I want to take the opportunity now to wish every member here a safe and prosperous Thanksgiving holiday.
I just updated my antivirus definitions and let my program do a full search of my laptop overnight last night.
When I got up the program had found 2 programs infected with the BDS/Hupigon.lpce virus.
TTSVoiceEditor_V284.zip & TTSVoiceEditor.exe
lpce is apparently a relatively new variant of the Hupigon BDS which could explain why my AV didn't pick it up sooner.
I am a real newbie here.. My membership is barely minutes old!
I have a Garmin Nuvi 760 and have had it a couple of years.. I found this group while on the Garmin site looking for an answer as to how I handle a complete freeze up of my unit.. I did..
I have always wondered about additional points of interest and now I found out where to get them.. GREAT!
I read that not only active duty members of military but any member that has a copy of their DD214 can get a 10% discount at Lowes or Home Depot. I checked it out and showed my DD214 and received my military discount. This is good all year long!
Well, do I ever have egg on my face. I've always said there was no way I'd have a built-in nav system.
On Saturday my wife and I went to "look at" the new 2011 Taurus Limited. The only one available in the area had the full nav system. We liked the car but I told the sales guy there was no way I wanted to pay for the nav system since it's idiotically expensive I already own 4 GPS units.
This week we are recognizing Gravecare for his fantastic new Tutorial on using POI Loader. Here is a link: http://gravesitebusiness.com/blog/2010/11/find-cemeteries-wi...
I have been asking for a POI Loader video from the community for years now and I am so happy that we finally have one.
I will be linking this to our FAQ area.
What do you think of this new traffic light design which features an hourglass with countdown yellow lights to give the driver a better sense of when, exactly, a traffic light will go red?
Do you remember where you were 47 years ago Monday? President John F. Kennedy's assassination. (Third hour English Class.)
This is great. I've wanted something like this for a long time.
It looks like there are several inexpensive netbooks available right, some even under $100. Would any of these be suitable to load GPS software onto and connect a GPS receiver or are all of these just a waste of money?
A friend of mine asked what are the small lights above or below the traffic signals? Looks like they could be motion sensors or something that EMS could activate by turning light to Green for them.
