Sonic Drive in Project Discussion

 

I was driving through Waldron,AR and I believe the poi files for Sonic Drive-Ins is off.

I believe the Sonic poi for Waldron should be changed to 34.912259,-94.097729 from -94.193509,35.07333

I still now how to get this done, but would like to see the change made

thanks

Thanks for the input. I just stumbled on your submittal and that is why I haven't made the change. Changes to any files should be sent directly to the author if possible. That best assures that a change will be incorporated.
I agree that the coordinates in the file appear to be incorrect. However, when I use google earth to see where your coordinates show, I see only an open field,approx 1/4 mile from any road.Can I get you to verify the coordinates?

Thanks,
Mahoney

New sonic location

jaygorman

Sonic website shows the address to be:
251 MIRON LANE, KINGSTON, NY 12401.

Which address is correct? If I use the address on the website, what are the coordinates?

Thanks for the input. I will make the correction.

duplicate sonics

debblr

First of all, since this is a new location, the chance of it being a duplicate is slim to none. The files on poifactory are the most up to date files that can be obtained. The ones internal to the gps are at best a year or so out of date.
Secondly, the files in the unit and the files that you download are in separate files/folders. The downloaded files will be listed under extras or custom Poi's. You won't have to delete anything.

The file already contains a Sonic location in Gilroy,Ca. It is,
6921 Cameron Blvd, Gilroy,CA 95020, (408) 846-6400

Are you saying that there is a second location in Gilroy?

Already in file

Gary A

That location is already in the USA file. Do I need to change the coordinates?

The file I looked in was the Indiana state file. I missed checking the US file. How far off are the coordinates?

Mahoney,

Thanks for your hard work. I looked it up there also, and although the current picture is a empty field, I believe a Sonic is acutally there. I will be going back through there Memorial weekend, so I will check the position again.

I will send the info directly to you. Thanks again for your work on this project.

Greencastle sonic location

Using google earth, it looks to be about 200ft difference. Both are basically in a parking lot and I can't identify a sonic in either location. Let me know which ones I should use.

I stopped at the Greencastle Sonic today and recorded the lat/lon right in the driveway entrance, close to the road. Here's the info:

-86.829951,39.646332

The Google Earth photo of the area is old. The new Sonic building isn't even shown, but it's there, trust me. grin I could smell the burgers.

Oregon Sonic

Didn't notice any sonic drive-in's in Oregon listed here. I'm kind of new, but noticed that this wasn't on my Garmin already. The one that I frequent is ...

Sonics in Oregon

You must be looking at the built in POI's. Have you downloaded the sonic drive-in file from poifactory?

Look at this:http://www.poi-factory.com/node/12733

It has 10 Oregon locations, including the one in Hillsboro,OR.

oops!

Yep, sorry... I was looking at the individual states and noticed it didn't have an Oregon one.

Coord correction needed...

The coordinates for the location at 10045 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Fredericksburg, VA 22407-9418 are way off.

The correct coordinates are:

-77.505369, 38.224375

Corrected the coor

I have made the correction. Thanks for the input.

Largo FL location appears to be closed

-82.75891 , 27.89466 , Sonic Drive-In; Largo,FL

The signs are down and the building is dark, so I believe that this location is closed. It still shows up on their website, so time will tell...

Largo,Fl location

I will leave that location in the file until it is removed from their website. However,I will add a note that this location may be closed.
