Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Spinz GPS detour guides Vegas to LA drivers off road, deep into desert

There's a lesson here! DO NOT blindly follow your vehicle navigation system or GPS!

If you find yourself somewhere that doesn't look 'vehicle friendly' (doesn't matter if you have a small car, built offroad pickup, or a semi!), GTFO of there A.S.A.P.!

Use your head for something more than to put a hat on! IMO, these people were too stupid to be allowed to have a drivers license.

I enjoy my Garmin GPS on road trips. But its just a supplement to me having a general idea of where I'm going. Years ago, I was traveling from Michigan to Tennessee to see my family for Christmas. I decided to drive I-475, a bypass around Toledo, OH. The bypass was very new, and not on my Garmin that wasn't updated. The display showed me driving off road through fields, and kept urging me to change direction. But since I knew where I was going, I just ignored it until I got onto a highway it recognized.

I use he GPS on my iPhone. I find it's best to add the address & phone number to the Contacts on the phone & use the complete zip code including the dash and last four numbers of the zip when entering it into the phone.

Trying to use a search engine with the address has just about always failed for me, I have a phone older that attaches to the window & it mounted just under my rear view mirror. I guess everyone has newer vehicles the me & they have an in dash screen with GPS feature.

For the longest time GPS wouldn't show a highway between I-40 and Santa Fe. There are even a few towns along it. Every time I'd plug in to go home, the GPS would try to send me on a wild goose chase.

GPS apps will do similar things out here where we live. When I zip my lip and let my wife pretend to nav with her GPS we ALWAYS end up in some random spot. Then I get in trouble when I stop the rig and (apparently with the wrong "tone") suggest using eyes and common sense rather than a stupid phone.

I still have laminated road maps in my truck. I never get lost, either.
