As a first-time POI Factory visitor, I just want to say thank you so much for this web site and the work people do to provide POI files. This stuff is way-cool and we are putting it to immediate use.
My wife and I live, work and play on the road. We are professional truck drivers in a custom-built rig that provides all the comforts of home. While we have a home address, we like to say, "The truck is our home, the nation our back yard."
Several times a week we find ourselves in new locations looking for food, fuel, groceries, campgrounds, dump stations, stores, malls, entertainment, and more. These POI files are a delightful and exciting find that will make an immediate and positive difference in our lives. Of course we found these places before, but the ease with which we can now do so is a delightful plus.
Thank you, POI Factory people, for the work you do in making these files available. I know these files do not come into being by themselves. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. It is an awesome thing you do. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Welcome to the family. Don't be afraid to add the files!
Welcome to the group, Ateam!
I'm sure you'll find many POI's you can use, and a lot of friendly people on the forums here.
You're right, this is an awesome site! Welcome!
You will not find a better site on the internet. It is well maintained and the poeple are great. Miss POI is da bomb.
Great to have you with us.
This is a cool site.You will find a wealth of info here.

Eddie2564-- I would like to personally thank you Ateam! Without your efforts and time like so many others on the road. We, the people of the USA could not live without the deliveries that you all make all over. Welcome to the site and may all your journeys be safe ones. Thanks again!
Welcome to the group. The way we like to travel I sometimes wish we would have done something like what you are doing even though I imagine the trucking part of it is not all sunshine and roses.
One thing, if you would ever decide to do a POI you could probably get a lot of the coordinates first hand.
Welcome to the group it is nice to have you with us.
I'm also new here, it seemed better to add on to this thread than start a new topic with the same sentiment. I just got a Garmin nuvi 250 this week, previously owning an old Garmin gps 38 and then a Deluo usb device for use with a PC and DeLorme software. I knew I was setteling for price over features when I got the 250, but overall I'm pleased with it. They sure don't document much for users interested in doing a bit extra with their devices though, so I'm very glad to find this community.
Now time to go grab a POI file, see if I can manage to store it on the add-in micro-SD card and still use it rather than store it in the main flash memory. Also want to learn more about the track log and see if I can't use it with external software.
I'm sure if you search the forums you can probably find everything you need to know.
If not, post a question and I'm sure the excellent people on these boards will answer your question.
You will find that you have become part of a wonderful community here, with your neighbors always willing to help you.
Welcome to the community and team. We are a very opinionated and helpful group
I have just recently bought a MM 4250 and already made good use of it in WV (read middle-of-nowhere).
I just wanted to enhance the experience by adding more functionality and POIs into the unit but found the POI editor very 'basic', to say the least. I found this site and seems like it will be very useful.
Thanks to everyone for putting so much info here. I look forward to contributing to the forum.
welcome forgps;) it is nice to have you join us also.
This site is the best. Ton's of useful information to be had.
Welcome to our community, we love new people, it helps blow the stink off the old ones. Of course thats just a saying.
I haven't updated my C550 poi for 9 months. I have been very happy since the time I downloaded the poi here. Now I move to a new city in Texas, I will look for the new poi again for like goodwill store. My old poi did not have some of the stores. Thank you for Miss POI and all you people's contributions.
To all Newbie's welcome to POI Factory and enjoy the good info provided here.
I'm sure you'll find this a very useful site and make great contributions to the forum.

Totally agreed: this is a fantastic site, and the people who run it and maintain it (surely a huge task for a site of this size)have given us a wonderful resource!
I finally loaded my first set of POI's th other day, and they do things I'd never imagined. For example, the Ghost Town POI from this site is fantastic for a desert rat like me.
Thanks, Miss Poi, and all who work at this site.
Thanks, Miss Poi, and all who work at this site.
I see that you have found out our secret, Miss POI is the Queen Bee and we are all her Happy Workers!
I'm learning soooo much. I'm reading and trying to learn. I hope to eventually get the nerve to make my own pois to share. I'd like to join in and say thanks. I'm enjoying the site
