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.

An RV forum website

An RV forum website suggested the link as a place to find bridges with low clearances!

I was surfin' the Web and ended up on this beach

Can't recall if I was using my Nüvi at the time - but I liked what I found, and I've sent the link to a few buddies of mine.

How did I find this place?

I was planning a trip to Florida. I wanted to find a POI file of interesting places in around that state. I did a YAHOO search, and there you were!

For the longest time I was thinking wouldn't it be great if there were discussion groups that would add and fix POI files, then they would always be accurate? I guess someone else thought of it also! smile

Google search, if I remember

Google search, if I remember right. And very glad I did find it!


Yes I found it on Google but I have referred several friends and relations to the site over the years. I don't know how many have joined but the Speed and Red Light POI files are a good draw even without all the other POI's available. The support for the units and quick replies on questions about them also keeps me coming back.

I was registering my Nuvi on the Garmin site and one of their website sections had a list of POI's for red light cameras.
However they were mostly pay sites and/or subscriptions.

Random google search

Started searching for rest area POIs in Tennessee, and a link popped up for this site.

Stumbled upon the factory

A couple of years ago, I just somehow stumbled upon the factory. Now, everytime I get into a conversation with anyone about GPS's, I refer them here. Best GPS site I've seen.

I found this site through Garmin and love it. Going to use it all the time. I got my Garmin c340 through Craigslist and have updated it for free from the Garmin site and love it. Still figuring out how the SD slot works with this...




I'm not really lost.... just temporarily misplaced!

Great Find

I was looking for information on radar detectors and stumbled upon this site. Owning a Garmin, I couldn't wait to try it out.

I never new there was so many POI's available. I am happy to be a new member

Thank you, Miss Poi, and everyone that contributes!

Also very much into MINI's and NAM! Enjoy a Mellow Yellow Cooper, but my attention to POI Factory was when researching experience with Nuvi 755's FirmWare 4.00 and a gps post mentioned that there was information on POI Factory.

smile Saw a lot more 4.00 information here than anywhere else!

Had never thought about adding POI's, but you have my interest now.



Tried out the new POI's today. Liked the red light camera warnings.

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 The Best 1 & 2 Finger POI Made! 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.
