Google Maps and Speed Cameras

I'm sure this has been asked, however I did not find a thread so I will ask.

Is it possible to download the Speed and Red Light file and use them with Google Maps on my Nexus 4 ( Same phone as the LG E960 )

Gmap4 = View topos/aerials *offline* and your geolocation

I have posted here before about Gmap4 which is an enhanced Google map viewer that I developed. Up until this summer I believed that Gmap4 would not work if your mobile browser was offline.

I was wrong.


Anyone know about this app for a smart phone, how good / bad, comebts...


I support the right to keep and arm bears.

Google Maps tracks you. All the time. How to opt-out...

The NSA is tracking us

As most everyone knows from reading the news about the Snowden/NSA leaks, the NSA is spying on everyone, all the time, and storing the data forever in huge data warehouses.

HP slate

Any body had comments on these. I have had 2, first locked up looking for a pass word. After a trip to Colorado, India and Phillapines and back to India I was told the unit was faulty derrr. Relacement unit failed to turn on. I was sent a replacemnt, in the meantime I had purchaced a Samsung tab3, it worked perfectly out the box, one small problem which was solved via "live chat".

CoPilot for Android POI Alerts

Does anyone know how to get the POI alerts on CoPilot GPS nav app for Android to speak the category of the POI set for audio alert? Right now it just says "Point of Interest" instead of for example, "Rest Area".

SmartPhone And Smartwatch GPS Application

I don't have a wristwatch synched with my smartphone, but I know they exist. Is anybody here running a GPS app on their smartphone and seeing a map on their watch display? Part of me is interested in getting a wristwatch connected to my smartphone so that I can read text messages, etc., but then I started thinking about the GPS function.


I am posting this here because although this isn't a cell phone forum, since this uses a smartphone and has the ability to send GPS coordinates, this might be of some interest to some members here.

Life in a solid state world

Today, I overslept for work. I'm a full-blown middle-aged person. smile

Why? Because the speaker on my Razr Maxx stopped working.

I have 5 alarms set, which go off between 4:25 AM EST and 5:30 AM. A fool proof system, until the speaker stops working.

Even worse, I am on-call. I could have missed a call because the ringer uses the speaker.

Navigating Via Cell Tower Triangulation

If you have NO GPS signal whatsoever. Say you are in an underground parking facility or deep in a mall, etc., and want to determine where you are, what apps are best suited for this? In fact, if you turned off the GPS, would some apps do an okay job of navigating or would it be pretty crude?

new plans (wireless service)

What do you folks think about the new phone plans? i.e. say family of 4 smartphones, 10gb shared, $160, but you can't upgrade?

Android Auto

I was getting ready to purchase a new stereo for my truck but after reading about Android Auto at last week's Google I/O conference I'm going to hold off for a few months. It looks like Google is finally coming out with a product which will allow us to fully integrate our phones into car stereos.

GPS And Other Apps On Smartphones And Tablets

The Garmin Viago app was released recently, but we have had other GPS apps for smartphones and tablets available for quite some time now. One of the things that I read from time to time is people stating that it won't replace their existing automobile GPS navigator. The way I look at this issue is that it isn't an either/or issue. Of course it won't replace a dedicated automobile GPS!

What Smartphones & Tablets Do You Think Are Good For Running GPS Applications?

As posted above, what smartphones and tablets do you think are good for running GPS applications? With Garmin Viago now available, I have a renewed interest in this topic. I have used a number of different smartphones with Garmin software in the past. My first one was a Pharos GPS Phone 600 with Garmin Mobile XT. It was replaced with a Garmin Nuvifone G60. Next was the Garminfone A50.


Have been using the new Chromecast for about a month now. Really happy with it so far. Adds a lot to a regular TV.
