Welcome to Layin' Down Tracks - This is how we roll
Welcome to Layin' Down Tracks. We talk about GPS's here including Garmin, Lowrance, Magellan, TomTom, etc. It's also the spot for GPS mounts, GPS enabled mapping software, GPS map building, and GPS devices like Spot.
The LDT regional subforums are the place to put your tracks, not for regional discussions. You can attach a Garmin compatible .gpx file. Sorry - no .gdb's or other file types. They can be way too big and harbor viruses.
Sometimes the discussion may veer a little and include some related topics, like computers used with a GPS, power wiring, bike communications integrated with a GPS, EPIRBS, ELTs and the like. While these are related, please use a forum like Thumpers, GSpot, etc for specific bike issues, and Equipment for computers and other devices.
Many GPS n00bs wander in looking for a recommendation for the perfect GPS for them. Before posting a question, start HERE and read the questions and answer them for yourself, and then go the GPS101 subforum and read the posts there and post a thread of your own if you don't find what you are looking for in an existing thread.
While participating in Layin' Down Tracks -
No personal attacks.
For sale/wanted ads belong in the Flea Market
No cross posting threads pointing to Flea Market threads.
Vendor posts are permitted to answer questions or provide general information about a product or service. No selling or pimping your product. That goes in Vendors.
No posting of copyrighted material or files, pirated unlock codes, etc, or pointers to the same.
Keep it clean, and keep it civil. Exchanges in LDT have a history of being helpful, respectful, and rational. We don't need or want a bunch of attitude. If you have an opinion, express it - once. The dead horse does not need beaten.
Don’t disrupt a thread with personal attacks, and keep off topic posts to a minimum. If it's worthy of discussion, start your own thread.
Posts and threads that belong in other forums will be moved there -most times without a redirect. If you don't see your post, don't just repost it, first search on your posts in the Control Panel and see if you see it somewhere else. If yours is particularly silly, we'll move it to JoMomma, where silliness is not only permitted, it's an art form.
If you see something that doesn't belong, instead of responding in public, simply click on the Blame John link to report the post and we'll handle things from there. In other words, don't feed the trolls.
And let's not forget this one: ALL Mod decisions are final, don't whine about it.
If you think the above are silly or to be ignored, well, maybe another forum or website is a more appropriate place for you (and we can help make that happen).
Thanks for participating.
