    Ah, thanks. I kept thinking about the other type of projection, such as ETA or driving range given the gas supply.

    Nice car, a bit too small for me. Shame they stopped making the Pontiacs. Had an '88 Bonneville I bought new. Lasted me 20 years. that Bonneville I drove with the heads up option also had its own air compressor. Nice feature.

    Didn't get it for the size, some tuning and parts upgrade by the experts, it was putting 470 HP along with some suspension mods and a custom paint job. made a pretty penny on it when I sold it.

    Don't try to get to my house by blindly following your GPS. I have yet to see one with a map that doesn't reflect the upper one in the image below. And my Garmin GPS is always telling me to turn at the upper outlet shown on my street which is somebody's house. The problem is the map below properly reflects what's on the ground:

    So if I have my GPS on, I turn into my street and it does the "recalculating" every time.

    I have no idea how big those plots are, but I suspect much of that map would fit within my 7 acres. I could never have neighbors that physically close again. But I guess that's a different thread, eh?
