    Looks like you all had a great time at JT! Good trails and good food (Chili Cook Off)! Wish I could have made it. My son celebrated his 12th B-Day last weekend so I couldn't get away. I'll see you at the next one!

    It does, but if I ask it to route, it just draws a beeline between my current position to the final destination. It's up to me to create a route and follow it from the map.

    There are a ton of map layers available to download and with a huge amount of detail. It can take terabytes to download the entire planet, but I can go for less detail and it could take only hundreds of megs.

    Being able to download only the specific areas I want is great. But I just wish there was a way to draw a shape over the areas I want to download instead of being stuck with a rectangle area.

    Still out there. But works are underway for a 4th of July thingy 9k feet up in Owens Valley at the saline valley tramway.

    Ive never had an issue with it on aluminum or engine parts. What happened with your experience, mane?

    From Simple Green's Website:

    http://simplegreen.com/faqs/

    "When used with caution and according to the instructions, Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner has been safely and successfully used to clean aluminum. Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner, Crystal Simple Green Industrial Cleaner & Degreaser, and Simple Green Pressure Washer Concentrates have been used on aircraft, automotive, industrial and consumer aluminum items for over 20 years. However, caution and common sense must be used: aluminum is a soft metal that easily corrodes with unprotected exposure to water. The aqueous-base and alkalinity of Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner can accelerate the corrosion process. Therefore, contact times for unprotected or unpainted aluminum surfaces should be kept as brief as the job will allow - never for more than 10 minutes. Large cleaning jobs should be conducted in smaller-area stages to achieve lower contact time. Rinsing after cleaning should always be extremely thorough - paying special attention to flush out cracks and crevices to remove all Simple Green product residues. Unfinished, uncoated or unpainted aluminum cleaned with Simple Green products should receive some sort of protectant after cleaning to prevent oxidation.

    Simple Green has also developed break-through water based cleaners that are safe for use on metals, plastics, rubber and high tech alloys. Extreme Simple Green Aircraft & Precision Cleaner, Pro Series Simple Green Automotive Cleaner, and Simple Green Pro HD are available on both the industrial and retail markets, respectively. These products were initially developed for the aircraft industry and extensive testing shows that they are safe and effective on a variety of metals and other sensitive surfaces even in the most extreme circumstances.

    Simple Green Stainless Steel One Step Cleaner & Polish is another option for cleaning polished aluminum. This product is designed for light duty metal cleaning and polishing."


    but there's always this:

    Bravo to SG for covering their ass. What I thought was common sense needs to be disclosed in detail to the average dork. Lol. Good looking out on posting this, brotha.

    yeah, back in the late 90s and early 2000s when we first got civics, integras, and other aluminum engines in our teens, we kids were really anal about keeping them clean like our white kswiss shoes. When we started getting pitting in our cylinder heads, we thought our engines were bad and there was some manufacturing issue.

    But yea, it's one thing to understand how aluminum oxide is amphoteric in high school and see the reaction with something that's a super strong base like sodium hydroxide. totally different when something like simple green has a base of 9.5 vs 13.

    it's pretty crazy the amount of information you come away with if you don't kill yourself doing stupid stuff in your 20s.

    I always tell people that the population would thin itself if the "obvious" warning labels were removed.

    True story:
    Here at work new bulletins were plastered in the lunchroom stating not to put shiny objects in the microwave after an "incident". We HAD 3 microwaves in the lunch room. We now have 2...

    Indeed. I knew SG was acidic but only horrible if you let it sit. No need for that. But dude, kswiss and civics? You're either Asian or a persuasion. I never had those skills.

    I've had tags off for awhile now. That thread for the wet okole group buy has been blowing me up pretty good.
