    I know, there's always at least one post claiming to make you money on every forum you visit. Well I have been a member of this one for just over a week and already my points are starting to add up.

    I can see the logic and the sales pitch :). I wonder how long it takes to accumulate 10k points? which equates to 6 squids roughly.

    Well I have mapped my area, and claimed nearly 2 thousand points in a week. I guess it depends how far you drive each day..

    Ok this aint going to make you rich..

    Exactly, and lets face it.. I have done hardly any miles around Hull. But for instance when I set off to Audi's in the park I will be driving for nearly 3 hours picking up points all over the place.. All whilst doing nothing but driving.. Money for nothing if you ask me!

    However, if you would prefer not to drive around the lovely countryside, get on a bike and do a paper round instead then that's your decision :p

    Here's my current stats\area I have covered:

    So considering the ground I have covered, just by going about my normal day to day drive I don't think it's that bad!
    I will post an update after tomorrows drive.

    I'd like to see how much it knocks off the price of your fill up on a tank for the points. I appreciate it wont be much but still, must be worth it mate :) unfortunately I can't make it to AINTP park this year (bro's bday) but will endeavour to make the next s.east meet.

    When I first installed it I drove all the way from Portsmouth to Yorkshire.. 7 and a half hours on the road in total, as I had to go via London.. When I got home, I realised I had not activated it DOH!

    Real shame as I am sure I would have racked up one hell of a collection!

    Epic fail dude! lol

    Indeed, and like you say, free money! I guess it lowers the price of a fill-up when covering distance (when you remember to turn it on :p) haha. Great dogs collies! very hyper.

    this sounds interesting. what can the points be redeemed against? I have a nokia n95 8gig, which has gps so i think would work? i drive for a living, so could be good.

    Hmmmmmmm, just registered and signed in, do I just sign in on my phone and leave it signed in or something? or do I have to download something? Bit confused.

    You need to download the app, depending on what phone you have..

    Check out this link:
    http://www.navizon.com/download.asp

    Download the lite version if you just want to help map.

    You can use your points to upgrade FOC to the paid version if you like.

    Had it for a few days now, got about 600 points just from my usual journeys. So not too bad, although the application did drain my phone battery quite a bit.
