what poi's would you like to see on here.
let me know-i'll get on it right away!
It would be great to have a Bank of America POI file.
Coordinates of gates that are actually open, preferably the 24 hour gates. Finding an installation is easy - but it can take hours to figure out where the gate is to get on post...
The military installations would be great
I'm new to this forum and perhaps overlooking it, but it would be nice to see U.S. colleges and universities.
You must be active duty or have a CAC. While I would also like to see all military gates, I'd prefer the ones at the badge offices or visitors' centers since I always need to check in there.
For example, one I run across frequently is at Peterson AFB. I usually stay at hotels within sight of the main gate and of course my Garmin tells me to go that way, but the visitors' center gate is the west one, several miles away. Another is at NS Norfolk--that base has gates everywhere!
Here's a list of Division I Colleges and Universities.
Here's a list of colleges in Virginia.
Here's a list of NJ 4-Year Universities and Colleges
Here's a list of schools in the UNC system
Here's a list of colleges in the Midwest.
couldn't find one for Sears stores
couldn't find one for Sears stores
that one may help you .
Hyundai dealerships in Canada would be nice.
like to see one of CVS Drug stores, for California or all USA
I too, would like to see Saturn dealerships/service centers.
A lot of Saturn owners would like to know if any dealers are out there. Like Pontiac and Oldsmobile before it the brand was eliminated
Id like to see where all the cops are hiding!!
One for school zones would be nice!
Sizzler for the whole United States
Would like a dog park icon. I have searched using Google and I see someone asked for an icon before on the forum but I can't find one anywhere.
how about Dairy Queen?
Try this one:
I would like one to lead me to my bed at a decent hour.
Tired of being 30 miles from home on my laptop at midnight, and it takes 30 minutes to go one mile.
I must be getting sleepy, now if only I had a POI to lead me to bed.
All school zones and playgrounds
in the greater vancouver area.
That's Vancouver B.C Canada.
Ok I'm a noob I think I just found it.
Bakers Square, Village Inn, Orange Julis, & Rally's
Yes, dog parks would be great, especially ones for the midwestern states or Chicagoland areas.
Ran a cursory check for Chevron diesel stations but didn't see one. I am thinking of compiling a list of Chevron diesel stations in the Northwest and possibly adding Texaco diesel later.
I would like to see a list of the YMCAs
How about all stop signs you could make a quite alert when approaching one.... could save many lives
Close to home I know where they are. Trying to find one in a strange place can be daunting. Not UPS stores, they are easy to find but aren't open 24 hours.
Gas Stations are everywhere - but a specialized list that ONLY listed stations with DIESEL FUEL would be GREAT!
Especially as more car manufacturers are making Diesel autos (Diesel BMW's are new to the US in 2009!).
How about one for wholesale club gas stations (Costco, BJ's, Sam's Club, etc....)?
Here is Costco http://www.poi-factory.com/node/9696
BJ'S has listing with locations of gas included http://www.poi-factory.com/node/3508
Just a quick thought here: is it possible to compile tsunami routes? Here in the Northwest, emergency services have posted road signs to indicate routes to take to obtain higher ground in the event of a tsunami.
I see that POI Factory has Hyundai dealerships for the U.S. Would it be possible to add Canadian dealerships as well please??
Would love to see Suzuki motorcycle dealers and auto parts stores (besides just Napa auto parts).
A POI with the most dangerous intersections or roads would be nice... for us who travel often.
Advance Auto Parts
O'Reilly Auto Parts
I would appreciate having the POI's for the Kum & Go gas stations.
My first choice for re-fueling along the interstates.
Thanks for your consideration !
I don't know if it is a POI.... but is there a way to have your GPS beep if your are speeding.. (for those of us without cruise control)?
Any street that has a MPH on the GPS screen....
I have a Nuvi205
TomTom and a few other do what you want, Garmin does not.
That would be nice to have! A POI that can be set and loaded to warn you if you go over "x" amount above the speed limit [as displayed by Garmin's map information].
The only problem I see having would be that the "x" amount loaded could not be changed/adjusted on the road. There are times when I get with a pack of other cars traveling faster than I normally drive and will go over my normal limit. If I had the Speed set at [say] 9 mph, but wanted to go any speed over that figure I would get nuisance alerts that I couldn't do anything about. Of course the volume could always be turned off while purposely going over the loaded "x" amount.
On second thought - if you have the Proximity Alert set to Single Tone it would probably only warn you once...and then when you slowed down below your threshold (or the speed limit) it would re-set again for another alert.
I would like to see a poi file of ALL Compass Bank locations. I know there is one for Colorado area but not for the rest of the US. Also, a file for ALL US Valero gas stations would be nice.
I would like to see a poi for The Vitamin Shop, Thanks
I would like to see a custom POI for the restaurant chain called "Daphne's". They are semi-fast food that serves Greek style meals.
I think that we need a "Mom & Pops Greek food" Project;) Any volunteers? Please start a new thread if you are interested in managing this project.
I'd like to have a POI of all the Hyundai dealers. When traveling, I may need repairs to my car. Perhaps the same for other makes of automobiles.
There is already a Hyundai dealership POI posted. I have it on my Nuvi and it works great.
Edit:--Sorry. My bad. I didn't notice the date when I interjected my thoughts.
Most of the stores are already listed, but I didn't
see POIs for Ross (VA) or Home Goods.
Maybe a Jimmy Johns one.
While POI's of all the inland ferry terminals might be a lot to ask for, ones crossing certain bodies of water (such as the Mississippi or Ohio rivers) could certainly come in handy.
As long as I'm dreaming , since many ferries are seasonal, contact info would also be helpful too.
Is there anyone willing (Miss POI? ) to take all the suggested POI's requested in this thread and make an open POI project list and who (if anyone) is working on each? This might give some an opportunity to take on the task of creating a requested POI file. Take this from beyond a wish list.
CVS Pharmacies for the U.S. (or at least the Southeast).
The file contains 6306 U.S. locations from CVS the web site in May 2009. Only includes locations geocoded at street level accuracy or better.
