Waze problems on my LG G3

In the past, I have been an ardent supporter of Waze, and even recommended it highly on this forum. It has served me well on my HTC One and LG G3. One issue I noticed was that occasionally, the sound went out. The oral directions stopped. Today, after the voice directions quit, I shut off Waze, and no sounds (ringtones, notifications) worked. The settings showed that everything was normal.

Tool to View Custom POI Factory Files on iPhone 6?

Is there any app out there that will allow me to access the POI files from POI factory on my iPhone and show them on the map near my location or route the way a Garmin does?

Good Price On A Refurbished Tablet At Woot Today

Over at Woot they have a refurbished Asus ME173X-A1-BL MeMO Pad 7" tablet for just $64.99. While this model is a little older it still has good specs and it would make a great unit to use for navigation by adding one of the free or low cost offline navigation apps. It does include the GPS sensor, however it is WiFi only so you would need an offline app.

Another Smartlink Traffic Question

Have a Garmin 3590LMT with a Samsung G4 and I am no longer receiving any traffic information on the GPS. With Bluetooth disabled I see the message "searching for signal" and checking the traffic provider in Settings it is Here (which I believe is correct). With Bluetooth enabled, I still do not receive any traffic info.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Nexus 6

OK, it's time for me to spend money again. I am trying to talk my husband into a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I have been reviewing it on line and now I need advice from the experts. You did good in telling me about the Nexus 7 so now it is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

The reason I want this is to carry less with me. I always carry my smartphone, my Nexus 7 Tablet and sometimes my wifi camera.

Obtaining the GPS Coordinates From the Google Map App

Recently we took a trip where the Google Maps Android application showed the location of where we wanted to go. Our mobile GPS unit, a Nuvi 650, did not have that location in its database. So i had to think of a way to get the GPS Coordinates from the Nexus 6 and transfer it to the Nuvi 650.

Millennials choose large phones over small tablets

When Apple’s third quarter earnings report came out on Monday, the tech giant celebrated strong growth largely fueled by its release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Despite the increased revenue, the new iPhone’s success may have come at the expense of one of Apple’s most established products: the iPad

"Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought." -- John F. Kennedy, 35th U.S. president

Hands-On Comments on the 6 and 6+

When I was researching whether to get the iPhone 6 or 6+, I found a lot of websites about the specifications, comparisons to various other phones, etc., but very few articles about how they were in everyday life. So, I thought I'd offer my perspective and answer questions potential buyers might have.

Tablets that can use gps with dataplan usage?

Hi - New here. This seems like the place to getthis question answered. I was wondering why dedicated gps devices can function without a cellular or wifi connection but smartphones using GPS can incur dataplan costs.
