    Test out the Motorola Skip

    Better than that, the phone will be "searching" all the time .. and it will be reporting it's position to many devices looking for it. Wal-Mart will now know if you're looking at vanilla or strawberry ice cream!

    Garmin getting retarded

    I read an article on The Trucker yesterday about Garmin's sending truckers over Independence Pass southwest of Vail. No matter the GPS, it is only a tool, not your lord and master.

    Anti Virus and Internet Security

    I have ALWAYS used Norton, and in the many years I have surfed the net I have had only one trojan .... I'm not sure why folks do not like the program.

    Samsung phone

    Several things drain battery life like a vampire. Close all the applications you are not currently using. "Navigator" comes to mind. And all phones, no matter the brand or service provider will really suck it dry when looking for a signal. . If Sprint, for example, does not have 4G service where...

    satilite raido in spriter

    I found my best Sprinter solution was to simply buy a set of powered speakers, and plugged the aux from the XM into them. I sat the speakers on the dash ..... no removal, no wiring, just KISS .... (keep it simple stupid). Using the fm transmitter always found interference.

    I spend most of my time on the Internet via

    While I was still out there among y'all I used the laptop exclusively via Verizon data plans. Now that I'm a "stay at home trucker", I just use the pc ... I'm not into those fancy gadgets, those touch screens also go somewhere else I didn't want to go from accidental "touches".

    Android Is Popular Because It’s Cheap, Not Because It’s Good

    Sort of like Starbucks, you have to have those ya know. And to be able to drink the crappy coffee, you have to add all kinds of enhancers, like sugar, whipped cream, etc ... Android, to me, is like a good cup of Folgers, worth the cost and a good product.

    What was the name of that Truck Stop...

    Dial-a-truck, began by "Moe" Jubitz and operated from the truckstop in Portland, Oregon. That the one?

    weather band radio

    I have one .... worked fine for me ..... understand when yer in the middle of the desert or mountains you may be limited in signal. NOAA broadcasts on very low power transmitters. Some smart phones can do a weather app that alerts you to bad weather? I think.

    weather band radio

    But ... if you are traveling, same county does not apply. Cobra makes a great cb with a weather radio built in.

    Why Babylon search and how do I get rid of it?

    Interesting how Babylon showed up .. apparently THEIR search engine looks for any reference to them!

    Bluetooth Headsets, do you use them?

    One thing I have noticed with bluetooth, wireless, headsets is the fact they are programmed to "listen" ... and if the folks you are "listening" to have high background noise the headset will interupt your talking, to listen. The folks on the other end can't understand why you keep cutting out...

    Installed my own CB.....

    If that cb is so important to you .... stop by a quality cb shop, (like Walcott CB, on I-80), and have the pros take a look at it.

    Installed my own CB.....

    There was a time, when the cb band was much quieter that 2 antenna was useful. Now not so much ... may I suggest you remove that T and just use the one. And get yourself an XM radio and leave that noise box, (the CB), turned off! ;)

    Best/most logical apu/inverter/charging solution

    Sorry for trying to make it simple ... but then my sleeper, (ac power requirements) were all pre-wired in the construction ... to the inverter. I used no outside power source to power them.

    Best/most logical apu/inverter/charging solution

    Inverters do not charge ...... they make ac from dc. You need a dc generator, or a converter to make ac into dc. My converter charged both battery systems.

    12 volts ... just more amperage
