keeping up with POI updates

 

OK, I'm a newbie and need some help.

I can see how the "My Discussions" will work to keep me up on any forums that I reply in . . . is there a tool/list of POI's that I am interested in that when there's an update I can review and get the latest data?

For example: I downloaded the Hot Dog POI (daughter is going to college in Chicago in the fall and seems like we might have the chance to check a few places out). I noticed a recent flurry of additions to the POI file and I was wondering if there was a "favorites list" or something that I could use to get notiied when changes or additions are made so I could keep my rapidly growing POI library up to date.

Thanks for the help in advance.

BTW got Nuvi 200W for Dad's day. Had eTrex Vista before that . . . didn't work too well trying to find stuff unless I was the navigator. This POI site is the best resource I've found for making the information I'm intersted in accessible. Thanks to everyone for all the great contributions.

I know you can check the poi

And it will have the dates of the updates... Other than that I'm not aware of anyother way...

subscription

Yea, I think it would be neat to get an automated
email everytime a POI that you are subscibed to is updated. Perhaps mods/developer could set this up?

There is a module available

There is a module available but we would like to wait until all the kinks are worked out before installing it.

Thanks Miss POI for the update . . . keep up the good work! If I can help testing, let me know. I'm pretty good with Excel and most Intermediate computer skills, if that helps.

updates

what you cold do is reply with a quick comment & link to the subscribed poi. that way you can always link back to it later on (your discussions)

We will share more info once

We will share more info once we feel it safe to use. It is a subscription module though.

Miss POI

POI by date

Actually, as sort of a suggestion, it'd be nice to sort POIs by date. We have the 'last 7 days' but, well, sometimes I'm lazy and haven't had a chance to check in 7 days.

Looking forward to it

I for one am definitely looking forward to a module that would let me know a POI I had previously downloaded had been updated.

POI Updates

After reading all the post on this subject the next request should probably be how can we get the poi-factory to update the files on our gps's without us having to do anything but hook the gps to the computor.

Errr is there a way to do that via bluetooth so we don't even have to hook it up? mrgreen

Kinda like a POI Facory version of iTunes? That would be worth a subscription!
