what poi's would you like to see on here.
let me know-i'll get on it right away!
Merry Christmas...I have your file created.
File sent to your email address. I am not local to OH thus you will need to validate the coor. I did a quick spot check and they seem correct. I do not want to maintain this file so feel free to take ownership and publish the file if it passes your validation.
and sorry for the delay in acknowledgement. You have greatly added to my culinary enjoyment--as well as to my waistline! Much appreciated!
I tried Saltgrass for the first time a few weeks ago during a business trip to San Antonio, and will definitely go back!
Glad to hear you enjoyed it! For the record, I have no financial interest in Saltgrass--I just happen to love their ribeyes. A couple of other things I've discovered about them:
You can buy a bottle of their seasoning to take home--a big one--for only about $5. A real bargin by any seasoning standards, and even better since it's their "secret" spices. When I make steak at home, I always try to replicate it with the bit of melted butter on top as well.
When I went to the Saltgrass in CO Springs, CO, I noticed that they didn't have the 16 oz ribeye on the menu and I mentioned it to the server. She said that they didn't sell enough of them to put on the menu but if people asked, that they would be happy to cut to size, which they did for me. [uh, of course they wouldn't sell many 16 oz'ers if they didn't show it on the menu?]
Again, for anyone who hasn't ever gone to one, be aware that Saltgrass is like a Lone Star or Texas Roadhouse type outfit. Not a Ruth's Chris, Fleming's, or Morton's. You get steak--not atmosphere!
How about historic POIs for civil war and Indian war battle sites.
I have just completed the file and uploaded it to POI factory. It should be available in a day or two. If you can take a photo of one of the locations, please send it to Miss POI so that it can be attached to the file.
They're a mid-sized chain of sandwich shops based out of Cleveland, OH. Their claim to fame is a "Romanburger", which is a double burger on a hoagie roll, with the addition of oil & vinegar, onions, and salami, which gives the sandwich a unique and unforgettable taste.
Here's a list of all their stores from their own website if that helps http://mrhero.com/locations_county.php
Thanks in advance to anyone willing to make this addition!
I just created and uploaded the files CSV and GPX file of all 82 locations with address and phone numbers coded to address accuracy. I also uploaded an icon.
I did not see you had made one as well
I travel a lot, and want to see things along the way. Craters, volcano's, Waterfalls, Rock Formations, and the like. No man made stuff please.
The CSV, GPX and BMP files created and uploaded here:
That is ok...I did not want to maintain a file I am not using.
Check the CSV version for a extra space between the city and comma separating the state.
I posted elsewhere, but I'd like Nationwide Popeye's Chicken...
A search of the Alphabetized List of POI Files at http://www.poi-factory.com/poifiles/alpha shows "Popeye's Chicken & Biscuits" has a page at http://www.poi-factory.com/node/14273 If you have a list of Nationwide addresses for Popeye's Chicken, please provide me the link and I'll see if I can create a POI.
Mazda dealers in the US would be handy.
onestep created it here:
I have also uploaded the Canadian files (CSV and GPX) today. If I did not mess them up, they should show up in the next couple of days.
Let me know if a POI file currently exists.
Generally there is free air at truck stops, but it is difficult to find local sites that still offer an opportunity to maintain the correct pressure in ones tires.
New to the site, forgive me if I have not seen what I am looking for...
HOW ABOUT A POI for HOT SPRINGS IN WESTERN CANADA & USA ?
I have a POI for Hotsprings in Western Canada, primarily in BC. If interested, please let me know and I will upload it.
Also voting for a Hyundai dealer POI database. Not that it ever needs service, but useful never the less!
I bought an Elantra during Cash-For-Clunkers.
It was not easy finding any car to buy!
Roadfood.com sells its "Roadfood GPS Support - POI" for $20 per year. It is not clear how they choose the listed restruants. There are 97 restruants listed for California, including The Cottage in La Jolla, CA with its $9 Hamburger. The Cottage has a 100% Approval Rating after 10 votes. There are plenty of $9 Hamburger restruants in California that have more than ten people who've eaten there and rated the place. There doesn't seem to be a motivation to create a list of restaurants from the Road Food Web site.
Just uploaded the Hot Springs in BC with 50 locations.
Working on the USA spots...
I would like to see a list of Gas Stations that sell Diesel Fuel
File has been uploaded. Stations in USA and Canada.
Includes 2424 locations in the following areas:
•United States: FL, WA
•some may be in: AL, GA (near a border)
I would like to see Civil War battlefields added.
Look at this one.
Do you have w/dixie stores in central FL....?
Look at this one
I would like to see a POI database of hot spots for crime so I can avoid the area when traveling into a new city.
That subject, or close to it, was discussed at length in this topic:
WoO dirt track locations would be awesome.World of Outlaws track are kinda out of the way would be nice for the dirt track race fan
BT exchanges in the UK,it gives all the addresses of all telephone exchanges in the UK,it is on tom tom home but would like poi to put on iphone for new tom tom app.many thanks wmjrk02.
Here is a start for the Restoration Hardware locations: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/27401
There is more than I thought.
I would like to see a list of all the antique tractor showgrounds and dates the shows are.
I second that!
How about scenic drives through national parks like Yellowstone, BlackHills, Glacier, etc..?
I received two error messages while uploading the below POIs. The error message did not go into detail, but did not allow the remaining lines to be uploading into my Garmin.
In Steam Railroads 5 and under there is an error in line 8.
In Steam Railroads 7 and over there is an error in line 23.
The new Antique Tractor Showgrounds (CSV Format) POI now is at http://www.poi-factory.com/node/27568
I would love to have a POI of the Hilton Head Island bike paths. To include but not limited to Hilton Head Plantation, Sea Pines, Shipyard, and general island bike paths. If someone could get on that, it would be just awesome!!
It sounds like you are looking for a turn-by-turn POI. (Does anyone know how to do this?) Even assuning that this could be done, it would seem difficult to do. There are many Hilton Head Island bike paths (google it).
A simple Family Bike Ride (6.82 mi.) path is at http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united-states/sc/hilton-head-i... To code this, I think you would need the Geo coordinates at each intersection of a turn point. I can't think of any easy way to get that info. You can get that info by using Google Maps' "what's here" feature, but that means clicking on each turn point intersection, copying the geo coordinates, and pasting them into a file. Then you would have to code in a command to go from point 1 to point 2, which I don't know how to do (or even if it is possible).
I would be willing to take a crack at it if someone else can provide coding instructions or lay out an information compiling technique that is much easier than the one I described.
Now, I would be happy to code a Hilton Head points of interest POI. The book Insiders' Guide to Savannah and Hilton Head at http://tinyurl.com/yawpwar has some locations, but it does not provide complete addresses. If you provide the Hilton Head POI names and addresses, I'll put them into a POI file for you.
Repost from http://www.poi-factory.com/node/2662?page=2
This may or may not qualify...but I always got a kick out of odd town names, tracked down a few over the years....
Possum Grape, AR
Bloody Corners, OH
Toad Suck, AR
Nanty Glo, PA
actually my favorite is a pair of towns in Oklahoma:
plus, if ya wanna get really off the edge, there's also Hooker, OK and Beaver, OK
Here's a few more;
and the famous
Lake Wobegon, MN (that one is a bit allusive)
Think this could be a separate post.
Bird in Hand, PA
Blue Ball, PA
I am not sure this information should go int this file.. Maybe someone will create a new file just for the these weaird and fun city names..
Anyone want to take it on?
Lakes, ocean, rivers would be great. RV Campgrounds with water activities such as river rafting and scuba even better. thanks!
Hello Newbie here
I'd really really really like to have all the DHL parcel offices worldwide as well as all Toyota dealerships
That would be sooooo useful.
Great site by the way - well done
Use the search feature:
Toyota Dealerships: (USA AND CANADA)
I could not find one for DHL.
Sorry but I did not realize that you were in Paris (worldwide).
How about the rest areas for Canada.
For Toyota Dealerships - Canada & USA, see http://www.poi-factory.com/node/27194 Perhaps make a request for all Toyota dealerships in that thread as well.

I've examined both files and do not see anything out of place in either.
Are you still having trouble?
Will someone else please report on their experience?
I was unable to locate any "Steam Railroads 5" POI or "Steam Railroads 7" POI. I found Steam Railroads 5" and Below & 7.25" and Above at http://www.poi-factory.com/node/24076
I didn't find any problems with the Steam Railroads 5" and Below & 7.25" and Above POI.
Steam Railroads 5" and Below & 7.25" and Above
Will someone else please report on their experience?
Filipino restaurants in the 5 boros of NYC.
An UPDATED Flame Broiler POI.
Thanks for letting us know of your experience.
Not the same as National Parks or National Historic Sites...we have POIs for those already...
Examples of Historic Parks include:
Adams National Park in MA
Appomattox Court House in VA
Harry S Truman Site in MS
If someone is interested in creating this POI, a list of the 45 National Historical Parks is at http://tinyurl.com/ylsan6s and the location info can be found at http://home.nps.gov/applications/parksearch/atoz.cfm
How about a POI for locations sung about in popular songs. e.g., Laurel Canyon Country Store (2108 Laurel Canyon Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046) is the store 'where the creatures meet' in The Doors 1968 song Love Street.
thanks for the great link. I'll take a crack at making one - it may take a while...but I'll do it.
