Hello All,

I stumbled onto your site today while surfing for POI’s and like it so much that I joined. Let me begin by saying that I am very impressed with your site and the assistance you provide to fellow GPS users.

I started out with a Street Pilot 2610 years ago and fell in love. I then purchased the slightly more portable 76CS which I still use for boating & hiking. I also bought a set of RINO’s when they first came out. For travel I later bought a Guest 2 which I still use. The most recent member to my Garmin family is the 660 that I purchased last week which is why I was looking for POI’s today.

Hopefully I will have enough time to participate with your site and perhaps even help out with some of your POI projects once I get the swing of things.

Just purchased a Garmin 680, and I'm looking to load it with some useful POIs. I do have some questions on loading POIs, but I will try to find the answers myself before tossing them into the forum.

Welcome to this site! I have found it very very helpful in many ways, and I suspect that you will as well.

Welcome to the site.

The POI Factory is a great site for getting POI's and information related to POI's and GPS's. It is easy to spend lots of time exploring the site to get valuable information and gain knowledge. The POI's are great and have been very helpful to me while navigating throughout the country.


Welcome! It is amazing how much knowledge so many of the people here have. No instruction manual even comes close to what you can learn here.

You'll love it!

Hi Jay. Welcome aboard!

I just joined the site a week ago and I've quickly learned this is my one stop shop on everything GPS. Lots of great folks here! From questions to advice to discussion on all sorts of topics. Jump in and start navigating!


Hi Jay, Wait till you

Hi Jay,

Wait till you discover the world of making your own audible alert files! You're gonna LOVE THAT! I have a few of my off the wall ones on here someplace, maybe someone can find the link to them and post it in this thread?!

Duuuuuuuh, I found it!!

Me thinks the brain cells are not functioning at full capacity today! (LOL)
