Cars that think for themselves are hard to build and harder to trust. Cars that talk to each other while they're on the road in the same way printers or servers on the same network talk, on the other hand, could make highway driving much more efficient and a lot safer.
Ordnance Survey and mountaineers monitor GPS-4G debate
A row over access to radio signals in the US could have implications for the future of GPS use in the UK, according to Ordnance Survey (OS).
It seems that Windsor, Ontario is Canada's worst speed trap city, but is second, in North America only to Livonia, MI. And I thought Summeersville, WV was the worst, in North America. Seems it is only the worst in West Virginia.
Each week, I see a lot of good things from many people. This is true every week, so I will do my best to spread the recognition around, week-to-week, as we go through this process.
This week I'm recognizing Evert and Mgarledge.
Evert has been especially active over last week, with many helpful replies and suggestions in the discussion areas.
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.
Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Labor day!
And it reminds me of the Hertz neverlosts that I would use in the 90s! LOL The good thing is it only cost $2800 extra.
The original discussion topic started by CherylMASS back in 2007 has been very popular; with over 3500 replies it's grown to be the longest thread at POI Factory.
In order to make things easier to navigate (and help avoid future technical surprises), I'm going to start a new topic each month like we do for the joke thread.
Here is CherylMASS' original post, continued here...

This is the official POI Factory Joke thread. It will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.
This thread is to wish everyone with birthdays in September, " Happy Birthday and Many More"
Way to go Texas!!!...
Not that this has anything to do with GPSs and not real sure why it made news today but I liked the headline.
I made it through the storm unscathed. 7 PM Sunday, POW! Something blows up in the neighborhood, and I'm thrust into the stone age. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a generator, but cold showers are so pase... I'm in Huntington LI, border of Greenlawn and am still out.
My time here as your fearless leader is at an end. I have taken a job with another company as a help desk agent. I am very excited about this new career and am looking forward to continuing my work in the field of customer service and technical support.
Sort of GPS related. Picked up a Uniden HomePatrol scanner. Really quite a neat radio. Instead of looking up frequencies for your area, and programming in the trunked systems that police and fire use, you just enter in your zip code and the scanner selects the appropriate services from the US database it stores on internal SD memory. You can update the database weekly on their website.
In response to “I must be getting old”
I’m 31 years old
I work two jobs, during the day I flip burgers at Mickey D and at night I deliver pizza for Pizza Hut
I live at home with my parents
I’ve been divorced twice and have four kids living with my ex, thank God for WIC so I don’t have to worry if the kids have anything to eat.
Is that site working for you? For some reason, "Transfer to GPS" and "Download GPX" buttons don't appear.
I've tried both IE8 & FF6.
Although the Subway restaurant chain would probably argue against this, this week we are recognizing flaco for his helpful and friendly participation in the forums.
Thank you flaco!!
