  1. never used metallic tint in all the years i have had my vehicles tinted. Good tint lasts a long time, 5+ years without fading. It's the cheap stuff you get at a chain automotive store that turns purple after a couple years or less. Also if you do metallic hink of it this way...how often is your gps going to be sitting next to your side windows? Chances are it's on or near the dash so as long as you are not tinting your windshield you are fine unless you have a newer luxury car like I think mercedes or BMW some of them have special windshields in them that do degrade signal strength but not sure which models.


    NEWBIE here. I just started at the prompting of a friend. I guess right now I'm an urban cacher only using my Blackberry to do the caching with. What I'm looking for is a Tulsa Based Group, or maybe just people from Tulsa to kind of help me do this. Emails would be just fine. I'm just trying to succed in one of these geocaches. I'm easy to reach at bmw@bryanwilliams.org Join us here! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/geocacheok/

    O Timóquio também? Parabéns pá. Coincidência do caraças, man Olha lá, diz aí ao owner para arquivar essa cache, que andava lá um gajo num BMW a lavar o carro na ribeira... mas espera, deixa-me lá ir primeiro.
  5. new release stuff a day early. I don't know where to post this so hopefully I can drop it here. I've been (of necessity) away from Geocaching for a while. I went looking for a cache to do today. It seems that all the caches I could likely do are for Premium members only. Has Groundspeak gone the way of "The Mother Earth News"? Will you soon be advertising Kubota tractors and BMW's on glossy pages? Am I correct or is this observation or is it just a function of my lack of computer skill? If you have indeed gone to paying members only, I shall mourn the loss of another in life that was done just for the fun of it. Thanks
  6. Hola compañeros, lo que veo claro es que hay empate tecnico, no es mejor uno que otro, solo que te puede gustar uno mas que otro y ya está. ¿Cual es mejor Audi o BMW...?

  12. 1959 BMW Isetta 400...king of the ugly cars!
  13. I own a Mini. I had heard about Mini's long before the new BMW ones. They used to race them on the ice tracks during Minnesota winters. The center of gravity is so low they do not roll over... ever. Your big high center of gravity, "safe" SUVs can be rolled very very easily.
  14. The self driving BMW they had on Top Gear last year must have used pretty accurate GPS detection... link to you tube M
  15. Claustrophobic Canyon GC11B4K - 1.5 difficulty/ 4 terrain As dangerous a location as you will find in California. All of the hazards mother nature has to offer, plus some surly urban campers at the entrance. SuperDave and I assisted Goblin Girl in her quest for this cache, and on the way out someone started hurling large rocks at us! SuperDave politely asked that they cease and desist, well maybe not so politely, and he was quite insistent. More rocks came flying out of the jungle, some landing on the street behind us. Fortunately one of SDPD's finest happened to be riding by on his BMW and Dave flagged him down. Together the professionals entered the canyon and confronted the perp! After a stern talking-to the ne'er-do-well promised to behave and the officer promised to check on the 'campsite' tomorrow. Everyday is an adventure! Rock on SuperDave!
  16. Wow cool thread. I ride and cache. Right now I'm on a Honda Shadow 1100. I'm hoping to upgrade to a BMW 1200 GS Adventure soon so I can get more off road action in like "SSSSS" is doing with his. Looks like your having a ball on your GS "Ss" Caching on the bike saves gas and is more fun!
  17. Allow me to add to Ratsneve's post. But first, let me make the observation that what I get the sense of here is some My Chevy is better than your Ford, case closed! attitude. Well, that can be excused because, as Ratsneve mentions, the DeLorme PN-40's capabilities have only been hinted at up until now. I have been fortunate to have been selected as a Beta tester and have been testing it for almost two months under a strict non-disclosure agreement. This NDA was loosened somewhat today and I am now able speak specifically to some of its capabilities from hands-on experience. Since I disdain the "my BMW is better than your MB" attitude, I'll restrict my comments to suggesting a hands-on comparison of the PN-40 with the 60csx and the Colorado/Oregon when the PN-40 becomes available at retail. You can then make your own judgement as to which suits you best. In a positive sense I will say that it is truly paperless with regard to geocaching with the caveat of having a Premium Membership so that the GPX files can be accessed. It's accuracy is spot on, so if the cache owner/hider has an equivalent, your are within a few feet. I don't feel that is somewhat smaller screen than the Colorado is a detriment to geocaching and any that I've failed to find have been a result of my lack of insight. I'm thinking that the total bundle including DeLorme's Topo maps of the entire USA is $430. There are a couple of other threads nearby with more information including one about "GPS Map Challenge.." started by Ratsneve (which has many side-by-side screenshots) that you might benefit by reviewing them.
  18. Never been arrested. Hassled by some cops in California because I and the folks I was with weren't dressed up to standards and were skulking around public places (albeit legally) after dark. It didn't help that we were driving an old Mustang rather than a new Lexus, BMW, or Porsche as the locals mostly did. We left after being questioned once and passed slowly 2 or 3 times. Wasn't worth the hassle to stay. Questioned by a local officer once behind a grocery store while caching with 2 others. After a quick explanation and a license check of the driver we were on our way. I have a cache that's in an old mailbox in my yard, and I was talking to an out-of-town cacher who was visiting it when a local officer stopped on the road and asked what the mailbox was for. I invited him to come check it out. As soon as I mentioned Geocaching he laughed and said "Oh yeah, I know about that. I catch Geocachers all the time!" Glad to know my local police are aware of our hobby. Also glad I don't have any REAL arrests to post about here.
  19. Ok...i'm new to geocaching. I'd love to of course have the latest and greatest but perhaps can't stomach the price. so...maybe someone can help me. best case - works with my car, and motorcycle like my bmw's in-car navigation, yet portable so i can go find caches. hopefully has all the maps i'll need for the US. and of course hopefully a very quick response updating my location when i'm looking for a cache. next best - ok maybe the vehicle / geocahcing thing is too expensive, how about just a unit for caching that is very accurate and will not make me wait 5 minutes and keep changing my distance / direction to the cache? ok maybe we're at the cheap but great category now...so what will get me out there and isn't alot of work trying to capture the caches in memory i need to go hunt down? oh...and is there a way to keep these finds marked or seperated as found vs not found vs to do list?
  20. Completely new to caching, completely new to GPS unit other than the one in my bmw. Accuracy is important to me, i'd like to know i'm within 2-3 feet of it if that's possible I'd prefer a one stop shop, but will purchase maps if need be for the 'perfect' unit. It'd be cool if it could go car to trail so we could use it in the vehicle without nav when not geocaching definately want the easiest way to download all these caches, not sure if there is a way to say i'm traveling between east coast to west coast, give me all caches within 1 mile of my highway journey or not. What would you recommend and why?
  21. The photo is incorrect. That prototype was scrapped months ago. The production model will be a Sportster, not a BMW, and will have a smaller, inflatable globe.
  22. What do the BMW bugs look like? This is the only account ( and this is because it is SEVERAL years old) that isnt bimmergirl535i. I'd love to see what they look like, and prolly get one... or 2.. or (//slaps my own hand and yells "CONTROL YOURSELF!") haha
  23. What does the BMW Bug look like?
  24. With Firmware 2.51 it is now possible to avoid highways, in case that the route is not longer than about 70 miles. On european streets this will result in avoiding highways (Bundesstrassen) and also motorways (Autobahnen) at the same time. Bundesstrassen: - Speed Limit: about 62 miles/hour - normally single-lane, sometimes 2 lanes per direction Autobahnen: - Speed Limit: normally no speed limit at germany, but about 75 miles/hour in most european countries - minimum 2 lanes, maximum 4 lanes for each direction In areas with a lot of highways and motorways, "avoid highways" will result in chaotic routes on the Colorado. This means that a tour to a city that is about 10 miles away will result in a route that is about 80 miles long, because the Colorado avoids all highways and motorways. When the destination city is more than about 70 miles away, the Colorado uses the motorways anyway. With the last firmware update of the Zumo and BMW Navigator III plus, it is now possible to really avoid only motorways (highways will not be avoided at the same time -> correct). Therefore, I was confident that the new Colorado would have this new routing engine with the next firmware update also. Hopefully, Garmin will make the avoid highways/avoid motorways working like it already works for the Zumo (avoiding motorways and highways separately). The current option "avoid highways" is not useable on (at least) europeen streets. I would appreciate, if this point could be added to the FAQ and Issues List. Thanks Stefan
  25. A cowboy named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote mountainous pasture in California when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in a Armani suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy, 'If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a calf?' Bud looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, 'Sure, Why not?' The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer,connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo. The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photo shop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg , Germany .. Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response. Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-Tech Miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the cowboy and says, 'You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.' 'That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves,' says Bud. He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car. Then Bud says to the young man, 'Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?' The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, 'Okay, why not?' 'You're a Congressman for the U.S. Government', says Bud. 'Wow! That's correct,' says the yuppie, 'but how did you guess that?' 'No guessing required.' answered the cowboy. 'You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew,to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about cows...this is a Herd of sheep. . . . Now give me back my dog.
