    Which GPS Should I Buy?

    Today I ordered a DVD from Garmin that provides an update to the mapping info on my unit that is 3 years old. While doing so, I asked a tech rep if Garmin had any programs for handheld or dash mounted units that were trucking friendly and included clearances, weight limits and Hazmat routing...

    Has this ever happened to you?

    or, stick your thumbnail under the top inner edge of the frame and pull off. There is a reset button on the right side.

    Help truck stop caused my truck to blow up

    Bee: Lawyers believe in money; if you have money they will believe in you. I think your best bet is to find a driver that understands how to properly operate a truck, not just drive it. Also, a driver that believes in treating your equipment as though it was his, or hers. You might be better...

    Question on Personal/buisiness Laptop Computers ?

    RE: Question on Personal/buisiness Laptop Computer I have a newer Dell E1505 that will only accept the verizon air card. Check availability of ATT compatability before you commit to the Dell. I also had a hard drive failure and have deduced it got toasted when I started the truck while...

    XM radio - now what?

    I've had the XM since they had about 700,000 paying customers and I no longer find it exciting, I find it a necessary accessory. Like cell phones and PDA's, once we get accustomed to a gadget, we can't do without it.

    'nother computer question

    Yes Moot. In retrospect, I think I started the van while charging and therein lay my dilemma. I use a continuous duty solenoid as an aux batt isolator and it closes when ignition switch is on so any spike would affect the charge either way. Redy: I was very pleased with the Dell support. It...

    'nother computer question

    I lost my harddrive last week and the consensus of the Indian Dell Tech and a somewhat savvy friend was that I toasted it while charging its battery with my van's electrical system. I'm using a 375 watt inverter in a power port on the dash. I have no idea if the inverter has any power surge...

    Wi-Fi alert

    Greg: The open safe door doesn't entitle you to the contents; and, apparently, an open privately owned wi-fi net doesn't entitle you to unlimited access. Thus spake Michigan Law. I agree with your second paragraph, but I think, in the future, I'll be a bit more cautious in my hot-spot use.

    Wi-Fi alert

    Randy: I do the same at Panera but nearly always get a coffee to go while the laptop boots up. Other than Panera, I take about any free wi-fi I can find. This article is a good wake-up call.

    HD TV

    We put it carefully in the back and had a neighbor help me hang it on the wall in the house. You asked about in the house, not in the van. I have a small Audiovox flat panel TV/DVD player in the van. Speakers are either wireless headsets or through the van's factory speakers.

    HD TV

    We've had a 42" plasma for four years and never regreted the money spent. I plugged it in during the weekend of Superbowl and was immediately impressed with the clarity and visibility of each blade of grass on the field. My set is actually a monitor with digital/HDTV capability. I have a 6.1...
