This week in GPS is a weekly link roundup of (mostly) GPS related odds and ends, from GPS Tracklog and other places around the Web. To get a few of the biggest stories as they break, follow me on Twitter. Today’s lead image is from a cool history of Google Street View.

  1. Atlas Cached says:

    The ‘Just Geo’ article above about gun deaths vs car deaths does not use any facts or real statistics, and amounts to little more than propaganda for the anti-gun agenda.

    The story is not even GPS related in any way, shape or form.

    I expect better from GPSTrackLog.

  2. I used Garmin Express last week to update a new nüvi 3590LMT & the CNNANT 2013.40 map update and it worked just fine on Windows 8/64bit.
