RE: Laptop battery stored in a cold car...?

No need to remove battery. Many have been well below 0* F, including mine. If it makes you feel better, then remove it. Ive flown many times with laptops/electronics, including Denver. Never an issue off, on, or whatever.

RE: iPad for Gaia maps?

Thinking of switching to a Gaia maps on an iPad for primary use in the RV. I am tired of the clumsy nav system that came from the factory. I'll also use it for ATVing and Jeeping. iPhone is not an option since maps app only works where there is a signal. I know that an iPhone can run Gaia maps but the screen is too small. I've done some research already. I know the iPad has to be cellular enabled with the internal GPS to use where there is no cell signal. Don't want to spend big bucks on an iPad just for Gaia maps. Also don't want a huge screen since I'll use it in the UTV. An older/refurb iPad is ok since it will only be used for Gaia maps. Suggestions? It works the same whether its iPhone or iPad. You can download "sections" for offline use, just like most other options. And to be honest, it works better in offline mode than online when signal gets iffy. I only use Gaia for off road adventures. I find google or apple are better for me for on road directions.

RE: LOCAST Receives Unfavorable Court Rulling

Its all about greed! Yet they wonder why so many ppl cut the cord and find "other free ways" of watching tv, sports, movies, etc.....

RE: WiFi Camera always late to the action

We use Blink, an amazon owned deal I think. Works well, micro SD slot for storage. Sends alert to phone, etc. Cheap. 3 cameras and module for well under $200 ( I dont recall exact price, amazon stuff is on sale every other day). We live in sticks and have slow internet at home (20mbps is max). Im happy with the Blink setup. Of course Amazon would prefer you buy the storage plan from them through their cloud, but I prefer using my own card.

RE: Carlinkit wireless Apple car play adaptor

FYI, make sure the bluetooth from phone to car itself is forgotten. Otherwise the car bt will override the adapter bt. I dont have one, but have checked into them a bunch. Lots of ppl like them, but they can be somewhat PIA to figure out.

RE: 12v coolers

We have a ICECO VL45. Works great. I too got sick of ice melting and making everything soggy. We use it in our Jeep when road tripping. Cools to 0*F. Uses 42 watts while running. I leave it in Jeep 24/7 running while on road trip. Has low voltage protection setting to save battery if wanted. Uses Danfoss compressor as do the larger ICECO sizes. They go on sale every so often. Got mine on amazon for $413. And I cannot stress enough how much better it is than a cooler. I have Yeti's, Rtic's, generics of those brands, and they all suck. An ICECO is close to the same $$$ as a Yeti and so much better.
