This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
** HAPPY THANKSGIVING **
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
Looking for info on hotels close by, restroom locations, Etc. Pretty much anything compared to the Disney GPS files.
This is a very interesting article: http://www.azcentral.com/community/phoenix/articles/2011/11/...
Basically a gang of people walking through neighborhoods looking for open cars, stealing anything of value.
Many people take their vehicle security for granted, and are lazy to ensure all valuables are out of the car every day.
I just got back from a DC to LA round trip, and used my 3490 for every mile above 10,000 feet.
This is approved by United. And I used it in plain view of the crew. Sat in 8A on a 757 - a very visible position. No one cared at all.
Some settings I used, that may help:
- I set the navigation to 'off-road'
- I use the Garmin Garage 'Jet' icon
- Driving Map View 'North Up'
I debated whether or not this should go in the Jokes Thread, or in the TomTom forum, and decided to split the difference
There is an entertaining video that purports to be the recording session for Bert and Ernie's TomTom GPS voices. It can be found at:
Despite some residents' concerns over red light cameras as "big government" and "an encroachment on our personal rights", the city council of Vestavia Hills, AL " voted 4-1 to authorize the mayor to contract with Phoenix-based Redflex Traffic Systems to study traffic patterns at various intersections to determine if they warrant electronic cameras."
I found this interesting info. We can opt out of Google location base service by appending "_nomap" (without double quotes) to our WiFi SSID. So if our SSID is called MyCoolWiFi, it becomes MyCoolWiFi_nomap.
The next time our wireless device (eg: an Android phone) sends info about the WiFi access point to Google location server, Google will remove our access point from their database.
This week we are recognizing alandb. Alandb took the time to do a thorough write-up of the technique he used to install map updates directly to SD card for his 755T. After many trials, he found an approach that worked and was nice enough to share his solution with the whole community.
Thank you alandb!

Boy have I missed you guys!!!
I hope everyone is well. I am loving my new job very much.
I finished training a few weeks ago and am now on my team. I am doing tech support for the Navy Internet system NMCI. I get to talk to our great men and woman that serve our country.
Sorry if this has been posted already.
Sometimes I see new posts in a thread highlighted with a Red "NEW", and other times not....
Take for example, the "NA 2012.30 is available" thread... I see there are 12 new posts... but today I don't see the red "NEW" indicator on the last 12 posts on page 2.
Now is the time to pause and reflect upon how our military veterans have served and sacrificed in order to preserve our freedom and attain freedom for those in many other parts of the world. And don’t forget the sacrifices of their families! Thank you, veterans and families!
We're only about 2 weeks away from Thanksgiving now, so it's time to start up the holiday shopping thread.
Any great deals you find interesting are fair game. It's okay to go beyond GPS.
Let's use this thread up to Cyber Monday, and then I'll start another one for December Holidays.
I was trying to do a search with no success for this topic. Can somebody point me in the right direction?
This week we are recognizing CraigW for his helpfulness in the discussion forums. He's been doing a great job responding to questions and sharing links to related information.
Thank you CraigW.

I apoligize in advance if this is not the appropriate forum to post this.. Advice would be welcomed:)
I live in Ypsilanti, MI and I’m seeking advice concerning a project that I’m researching for a local Boy-Scout project (I’m involved with scouting through my Nephew)
In a nut-shell ---(I need advice concerning GPS options)
THANKSGIVING / BLACK FRIDAY ARE ONLY ABOUT 2 WEEKS AWAY
I'm starting to see many new roundabouts around the US Southeast. I just read many older drivers don't like them. I'm 63, and am a fan.
It seems to me "Yield to traffic in circle" is much less confusing that the usual 4 way stop quandry of I think I was here first.
So, I'm curious: What's your opinion?
Like? Dislike? Why?

You used to be able to get lost in the crowd, but not anymore. Double click on any area in the picture to bring the person closer. Or, just click the mouse and use the mouse wheel to bring them closer.
You can scan and zoom to any section of the crowd. Wait a few seconds. Double click anywhere. And the focus adjusts to give you a very identifiable close up.
