poor mans navigation

Wed Aug 31, 2016 2:55 pm

dear folks, i recently got my new VERY basic 2016 leaf which i call "hoppy"(leaf, leaf hopper therefor hoppy) i lease it and did not want to mod it so i decided i needed some basic navigation. sooooooooo, i got a 5" garmin and used double sided tape to attach it to bottom of dash. so far all is well and i like the "semi pro" install.

You post the picture on something like photobucket web service. In the post editor use the 'img' link at the top of the post creation window to insert the link (to the image) into the post.

You can get the link to the image from photobucket by clicking on the widget they have for each picture you upload. Mine looked like this:
Image

Once I clicked on the IMG (on the Photobucket website) it copied to the clipboard. I then go back to the post and paste it all in or just use the http://.. path... between the img tags. like below. Tags have the square brackets around each word to make it work. Click PREVIEW to test if it works the way you intend it to.

My TAG for the image above looked like this below. I used the code feature to show otherwise I can't display the text for you.

Code: Select all

My cell phone has NAV and it only cost me 97 cents. One could also use a bargain $20 7 or 8 inch table with GMaps with the downloadable maps or linked live to your cell phone if you need a bigger screen. I can just Hey Google to get gps directions to coffee or in the case of this past Saturday find "Hybrid Dealers near Tampa" to get to the Prius refurbisher who also sells off lease Leafs.

Lost of options for the Poor Man.

Digital Weekend promotion for members of family plans to upgrade at the Wholesale Club. It was only 97 cents. I am cheap and don't upgrade my phone until the carrier is practically begging me to and then I do it when a new model has just been released and the previous model is just about being given away.

I'd still be using a Sanyo Katana if they had not changed the networks so drastically however the GPS was not that great on a flip phone.
