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.

Looking for help on red light cameras and points of interest.

Staggered across POI Factory.

Still trying to learn.

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.

POI Factory and POI-Factory --- I will have to look for a POI Factory. Loved your story. smile

When I got my GPS as a gift, I went to Google to find out more about it. From there I found out about POI files, which lead me here.

Thanks to all the maintainers for your work!

Found this thru google. Still useful to me, I only use my iphone for directional assistance as a last resort.

Been A While...

It has been a while since I found POI Factory, so I don't remember exactly. Most likely it was Google related.

not positive

but I think it was researching rlc's online...

How did you find the POI factory?

Its a little dry and hard to cut and bland. Kind of like chewing on a charcoal brickette. I prefer things with a little more flavor,not quite so tough and where a chain saw isn't required to cut it before trying to chew it razz

After I have a 168 dollars ticket for turn right in red light camera.

I was searching for BaseCamp turotials

and found Norwood's videos. During one of them he mentioned POI Factory so I made a note to check it out and here I am! Seems like a very "tech" savvy place so I'll be making use of the "search" function a lot no doubt.

Not sure exactly, but I was probably Googling something to do with POI and POI Factory showed, and as they say, it's been happily ever after.
