Perhaps I'm missing something, but when in navigation mode, Automate used to display the turn by turn directions on the hinge screen. Automate did that quite well in my DROID Turbo, but since I upgraded to the Galaxy S7 Edge, it doesn't do it.

I'm officially coming out as trans-wealthy. I am a rich man stuck in a poor man's body. Who cares if I'm not a CEO of a high powered company, that I don't have the money in my bank account, and I don't have excellent credit. I demand a Ford GT40, a yacht, and a vacation home on an exotic beach. I demand an invitation to exclusive VIP events where I can hobnob with the rich and powerful, I demand instant membership to the Builderberg Group and the Illuminati. I'm trans-wealthy, I have my rights.

Tips from a Banker for the Holidays part 2

3. Notify your bank and/or credit card issuers of your travel plans.

I know it sounds invasive, but this is really to help protect you from fraud. Banks don't care where you travel to. What banks do care about is if your card was used in Minnesota on Monday and then a transaction made in Florida on Tuesday. Unless you contacted your bank, they will have no way to know that you're vacationing in Florida. In order to protect your account from fraud, your bank will assume your card information was stolen and is being used by somebody in Florida. They will put a freeze on your card until you're able to verify that it was you who did the transaction.

If you're a snowbird, consider having your statements mailed to you at your winter home.



Tips for the Holidays from a Banker:

There is a lot of fraud and identity theft going around, especially during the holiday season. Here are some tips to make sure your holiday season goes smoothly.

1. Keep your information updated with your bank and credit card issuers.

Did you move recently or change your phone number? Let your bank know right away. Most banks and credit card companies have fraud protection services that work around the clock trying to protect you from identity theft. If there is any suspicious activity on your account, the service will try to get in touch with you to validate the transaction.

2. Have a backup plan in place should your debit card be lost/stolen/or frozen due to potential fraud.

It's Black Friday, you pushed and shoved your way to shopping list completion. You waited an hour in line, finally get to the cashier who swipes your card and alert you that it's been declined. It turns out that somebody was trying to do a little bit of shopping with your card number that they've stolen. Luckily, fraud prevention caught it in time. Bad news for you, because you didn't do step one, they were unable to contact you to inform you that your card has been compromised. Sure, you're getting a new debit card, but it's going to take up to two weeks. Now you have no other way to pay.

This is why it's important to have a backup plan. I suggest having an emergency credit card or a prepaid debit card attached to your account like the Google Wallet card.
