How did you find the POI factory?

 

We are seeing a lot of new members on these forums. I think it is great. They all have one thing in common. They all found, stumbled upon, found a link, etc. to the POI factory. I think that I saw a link on a review of GPSs, on line. I have told my friends by word of mouth.
I love to read the back of menus and learn the history of where I am eating. so I would love to know the background of The POI Factory.

Not so far with me sad I sent them an email regarding my downloading problems this past Tuesday and I still havent heard from them

Google

I found the site through Google. I had just bought my first unit, a C550 Street Pilot, and it said I could add my own POI's. I went looking for a place to get information and found all of you fine people. I have looked at other sites, but this one has the most information, friendly people who don't call you stupid when you don't understand something, and the best POI files out there.

And that's all I have to say about that!

Kudos to Miss POI and hubby for a great site!

I was wearing out the Garmin site getting ready for my new GPS to arrive. I was looking for POI's that will be available so I hit went to extra's/POI's. Of the site's listed this one was by far the most promising so here I am. What I've seen so far looks like just what I'm looking for. Looking forward to being a contributor to the community.

"You can't get there from here"

Garmin.com

Like many, I found the link on Garmin.com while looking over what I could do with my new 760.

How did I find the POI factory?

I was in Honolulu, Hawaii last summer. I had just bought my Nuvi750 from Best Buy. I had decided to take it on my trip to Hawaii.

I had been visiting and old friend at the Kapalama Military Reservation in Honolulu. We talked about old times in the Navy here in the late 50s and early 60s.

We started to reminisce about the old Hotel Street with all the sailor bars, and just how much fun it had been.

So I decided I needed to retrace my steps here from an earlier time. I programmed a route into my Nuvi, to get from where I was at to get me to my old stomping grounds on Hotel Street.

To make a long story short I was routed up Libby St. then left on Nimitz Hwy then right to Smith St them left to Hotel St.

Just after I started northeast on Libby St. I noticed a sign saying HPC Foods, Ltd and as I got closer I saw smaller letters POI Factory. Well I was surprised and amazed at the same time. Here was my first POI Factory I ever had found.

Well as it turns out later I found more.

I guess it is like when you buy a new car, you never pay much attention to that model until you have your first, then you start noticing them all over the place.

I guess I probably saw at least 15 large and small, mom and pop, POI factories in the next week.

I know it meant a lot to me. I was surprised at just how much it must mean to others to find their first POI Factory. Here on this sight a lot of people were giving their answer to the question: How Did I Find The POI Factory.

I'm very grateful for you to let me tell my story here.

Thanks to you all, you've made me very happy.

How did I find POI Factory

While researching GPS units, I found a ref. to this site from Motorcycle Mama on just about every site I went to. Thank you MM !. It is a treeific source.

Listed in the ARRL Louisiana Section Monthly Summary for May, 2008

gotta love google!

I just got my first gps device, a garmin nuvi 260, for my birthday a week ago. I've loaded the 2009 maps and now i'm searching for some poi's. I searched Google for "gps poi" and POI Factory was the third one down. I saw this "Browse free POI files with over 1000000 locations" and decided to give it shot.

He sure does keep me busy. I will show him doing different things once a week.

He is quite a dog. He keeps busy in his own ways also.

From frantic surfing

Hi all,

I'm one of those new members and here's my first post, Yeah!

I found out about poi-factory (and POIs) the next day I bought my Garmin Nüvi 260 and started fiddling with it.

First day was dedicated to bringing the unit up to date. Once that was done, I started reading around looking for ways to maximize benefits from my GPS on my next vacation.

I followed a thread from the Garmin site, through GPSreview.net and finally here.

You look like a fantastic group, look forward to contribute content from my nick of the woods.

Glad I found this site

I was looking around garmin.com one day and found the section about POIs. I checked the other sites and this happened to be the one I chose. The politeness of the forums and from what I could tell the people are pretty nice and understanding to those whom are new to GPS and POIs. I've had a GPS for several years so I know about them but POIs is a new thing for me and I'm learning a lot from this site.

Thanks for a great site and I stop by almost on a daily basis to learn new things.
