  1. Thank you to all of the Mods and Admins. I...

    Thank you to all of the Mods and Admins. I haven't been hit with the 120 day requirement (Don't know why not, but not complaining about that.) so I have not chimed in. But abolishing the requirement...

  3. No. Because your Mac won't boot, what you need is...

    No. Because your Mac won't boot, what you need is a USB with the operating system ALREADY installed. At this point because your Mac won't boot, you cannot install the OS to the USB drive.

    But if...
  4. Do you have anything you can boot from...

    Do you have anything you can boot from externally? A USB drive with the OS installed? A clone backup? You can boot from that and then clean off some space on the drive from there.
  5. If they issue some certificate, it has to be...

    If they issue some certificate, it has to be pretty hard to duplicate or counterfeit, it has to be very clear (the clerks at the gates are not the sharpest tool in the shed sometimes) and it has to...
  6. Yeah, what the FAA didn't consider (or ignored)...

    Yeah, what the FAA didn't consider (or ignored) is that the airlines don't even know what's in the checked bags, have no facility at the gate to examine carry-on bags, don't know which computers are...
  7. FAA bans recalled mid-2015 MBPr from flights

    According to this: Recalled 2015 15-Inch MacBook Pro Models With Faulty Batteries Banned From Flights in U.S. - MacRumors

    the FAA has banned from all US flights those MBPr which have been recalled...

    @Csmac, the real caution is that when people post terminal commands like that, all too often someone who isn't confident will copy/paste it anyway, assuming that it must be ok to run. But if you put...

    My MBP pretty much cruises along at idle with temps in the 60 degree Celsius range. The case just above the keyboard, in the warmest spot, is about 37C in the same range. To the touch, it's warm, but...

    You have no way of knowing what the DosDude patch changed. That is why we don't recommend third party approaches to installations. Even if the OS "runs" you don't know what is not running the way...

    Patrick, I've heard other stories about GPS inaccuracy leading people into trouble. As an experiment, back in the mid-80's I set up a GPS in a fixed location and let it run for four hours, just to...

    Videos drive the CPU/GPU really, really hard, so the temps go up. 40C is hot to the touch, so that's consistent with what you reported. Does smccontrol show the fan speeds? Are you using it to...

    One more thing: The way that the cell service does the most to speed up the GPS fix is that your cell phone can get the almanac data faster over cell using a bit of your data allowance so that as...

    If you really want to know how GPS works, watch this video at YouTube: YouTube

    It is accurate and pretty simple in the description of how it works. One interesting fact is that every day the...

    Depends on what you want in GPS. For driving around, Waze is free (ads show up when you are stopped at a light). It has traffic alerts and will reroute around a blockage. If you want to go off-road,...

    @Mike, navigation has almost nothing to do with cell coverage and almost everything to do with GPS signals from the satellites. Keep that in mind. You do NOT need SIM cards or cell coverage for...
  17. Mike, I tested what you want to do and it worked...

    Mike, I tested what you want to do and it worked perfectly on a 5s I have. No SIM, GPS works fine. The ONLY factor that the SIM card plays in navigation is that if the GPS signal is dodgy (buildings...

    Just get an external drive. They aren't expensive. Typically under $20US.

    TBH, that's normal. Updating is an intense activity for the CPU.
  20. I can understand the carriers' position, but I...

    I can understand the carriers' position, but I admit I'm confused by what is happening here. Is TalkTalk offering (up to now) free or PAYG email and broadband? Is the issue now that they want to...

    I don't use CarPlay (I don't have a compatible system) but I seem to have read somewhere that you can be doing other things on the iPhone and still have maps, etc, sent to CarPlay. If that is the...

    Let me recommend some solutions, all of which, I think, are in the App Store from your iPhone:

    Inrix Traffic - brilliant for traffic, navigation is OK
    MotionX-GPS - recording tracks, elevations,...
  23. Elevation is not critical to road navigation and...

    Elevation is not critical to road navigation and it adds a lot of extra data to have 3D maps. All the terrain information has to be added to the lat/lon info already there for 2D. That extra data...

    Not withstanding Sygic's over-the-top claim to be first, there are two types of GPS navigation systems out there. I used to write professional articles on GPS systems when they were first coming out,...
