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.

Found POI Factory

by rummaging around when I bought my first gps, a Magellan Roadmate 700!

“It’s their world. We’re just living in it.”

Don't remember

I guess it is one of those "getting old" things. I'm still cooking my memory-rejuvenation pill

How I found the POI Factory

I took a business trip with someone that had a Garmin. Just had to buy one. Started searching for information, and found this site. Great place with loads of information!

Search Many

I was looking for sites with all the speed cameras and redlight cameras. This was the only site that when you clicked on the redlight cameras I saw Phx Az. So I signed up and it's been a blast. Not only did I get what I wanted I go so much more on how to set up My Nuvi 760. Great Place to just hang out when I not busy.

I found it when I did a google search on custom pois and I'm sure glad I did. There is some wonderful info on this site. Thanks to all the members and maintainers.


Yeah. What he said!

"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 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."

Couldn't have said it better! smile

Tell'um Magellan sent ya

Last winter when I owned a Magellan, I phoned trying to get info on updating their POI files. The customer service agent told me to go to POI-factory. That was THE best information Magellan ever came up with!

I was looking for taro root recipes...

...and just typed in poi-factory. Much to my surprise, it was about GPSs.

How Did You Find the POI Factory

Garmin website!

Up on your way, hit the open road, there is magic at your fingers......


Googled for "poi" and "speed" a few months back. POI Factory link was within the first screen of hits.


Garmin Nüvi 265W

I found it thru Garmin when I bought my Nuvi 2 years ago...

...and way back when this site had a grand total of about 10 files on it, rather slim pickens. But I treated Miss POI to a salad at the time (her idea for a donation; whatever happened to those?) It's grown a great deal since then.

Discovered this site on the Zumo Forums. Great site and a bunch of POI's to choose from. It has been a bunch of hard work put in by a lot of people.

I bought my first GPS and planned on using the custom POIs for the traffic cameras so I googled "freeway camera locations in arizona" and in the result description for it says "POI Factory has a free database of camera locations for GPS users."
I clicked the link and it took me to some news article. After searching the page a bit on the right under "related links" was There is another link there that has all the locations but not the GPS coordinates. I remember so much because it was like 2 weeks ago.

As others, I found this site by doing a google search on poi and red light cameras.

I've owned GPS units since my GPS III+ but recently bought a Nuvi 750, the first one I could upload custom alert POIs.

I found it on POI-Facotry is a great site. I have learned a lot about my GPS.

The Internet

My wife gave me a Nuvi 660 a Christmas gift. After reading the instructions and visiting Garmin’s site, I knew I wanted more information. I did a Google search for poi's and ended up here. I quickly found that there was no reason to search any further and I've been here daily ever since.

I'm a newbie and am just learning about GPS and POI's. The POI software that came with my Magellan leaves much to be desired like... how and the heck do I populate this world map with GPS coordinates and POI's? The first google search with "POI Megellan" lead me here within the first 10 options.
