This is a POI Factory Success Story


When it first was released I downloaded the “Auto Repair” poi file. This was just in case I ever needed this information.

Two weeks ago my tow vehicle, a Ford F350, was really running rough and I needed professional help. We are staying at an RV Park in Az for the winter, 1500 miles from home in WA.

I opened the Auto Repair file and the closest location was 230+ miles away. I then downloaded the latest version and found a location 15 miles away. I emailed the file originator to see if this place was still recommended. The reply said yes.

I had this shop analyze and fix the problem. They did this in a timely manner and at a fair price. My truck has not run this good for some time.

The “Auto Repair” file worked for me…….

Didn't know that we had a POI file on auto repair facilities. After I read about your story I immediately went and downloaded the POI file into my 660. You never know when you might need it. Thanks for sharing your story grin.

Good to know that there are some repair shops that will give the public an honest estimate.

I'm with Petlaur - didn't know we had one for repairs. Hmm, I wonder what else I don't know about.
