    Interesting Dash Cam

    Well -- There's a way around this ...... Depends on what you want to do with the GPS file. If it's imbedding a speedometer into the video -- Then it can be done. I'm not saying it's easy - But possible. I experimented making a couple of video's doing this a few years ago. I'll post and you can evaluate if this interests you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oarwvNJUPYI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IB90myhi5cw To do this I use a QSTARZ BT-Q1000eX Data Logger and for software I use Dashware. On Dash Cam's -- -- I like the Blackvue 2 Channel DR650GW Full HD with built-in WiFi. Another candidate is the ipixi Winycam X200FHD. FUN Times -- -- I LUV gadgets .. .. ..

    Had a GREAT time at the Hot Rod Nationals .. Lost WiFi though as the place started to fill up.. .. Worst construction to date -- I-84E at Ogden,UT. Now -- That SUCKED .. .. Talking about road construction -- Several places on I-80 .. And I get a tickle with the speed signs .. .. In Black/Orange lettering it says "Slow Down" -- Then underneath is the speed -- 65 Miles Per Hour. Yea -- Right .. Even on my best day - Going downhill I don't go THAT Fast .. .. Pulled into Davenport, IA this morning -- Got a site at Interstate RV Park .. .. Having a hard time coping -- It's HOT and HUMID in these parts. Last night it was 102 when I went to bed - Had both air's on in the Truck and woke up around midnight and all the windows were sweating on the OUTSIDE -- It was so humid out. And - There is NO restaurant within walking distance from this park. With this Heat/Humidity and NO food -- I might loose some weight .. .. FAT Chance .. So much for washing/waxing the Rig before I left -- Got to go find a Truck Wash that hand washes .. .. I'll be here a couple of days - I see that the Nascar Race has been postponed -- Great .. I'll catch it tomorrow -- Maybe I can call out for a Pizza .. .. Played tag with Lonesome Dove -- Only got a chance to introduce myself at Cabella's RV Park -- Lost you today on the road .. Hope all is well and you got your problem fixed. Traveled 2192 miles (ECM) or 2209 miles (GPS) and am averaging 9.86 MPG (ECM) -- Including ideling time -- I won't be without my AC .. .. Gotta GO >>> >> > .. . N 41.60580 W 090.63162 Dick -- I'll call you later this evening .. Dave

    Hi David -- Most elect to park on the asphalt. This is located just past the Port Office - Extending all the way down to the Boat Ramps on the North end. There are no reservations excepted in this area. First come first served. Cost is 10 dollars a night. Just 200 yards away - Just past the boat ramps is the RV dump and fresh water - So that is close !! I'm trying for the spot at the start of this page - That being section "C" space 16. I like the water and the price is 12 dollars a night. This is just a couple of hundred feet away from the pavement parking. Some elect to reserve a space in the RV Resort. One can either walk or drive to the other side of the Marina - Where most of us will be. As you've found out -- There are also many other camp grounds here. Windy Cove has 2 sections and then there is Discovery Point. There are also several Sand Campgrounds for the more adventerous .. .. Bottom line -- IF you prefer full hookups -- Call Salmon Harbor RV Resort (Best One) and reserve a spot. If you care to dry camp - NO reservations required (Plenty Of Room !!) -- Just head down the road to the RV dump/Boat ramps and select a spot of your choice .. .. Re-Reading last years thread may also help .. . . If I can be of any further HELP .. .. Just drop me a line .. .. See you folks at the Beach .. .. Dave
