Error in location of Golden Corral in Akron

 

I used the Golden corral POI file that I downloaded from this site. However, the location of the Akron Golden corral, at 79 Springside Drive was not accurate. I was with a friend and I said, turn left (according to the GPS) and he said, "but I see the sign for it on the right". I said, the GPS is never wrong! Opps! It was.

I am not sure who is maintaining the file but it needs a tweak for this location.

Thanks.

Care to tell us...

What POI file? What's the actual address, and the coordinates? Phone number?

If you use the POI, and it's wrong, tell people here HOW it's wrong. The devil is in the details, as you've found out.

BTW, the GPS wasn't wrong. It went to where it was told to go.

It is best to use the contact tab for the author of the file and supply the information. http://www.poi-factory.com/user/30479 .The location 79 Springside Dr in Akron Ohio.Correct coordinates should
be -81.644304,41.133522

golden corral poi

all of these locations where taken from golden corrals web site and the complete address was used, this poi took several days to do, the POI edit program was used and the information that it gave is what was used, so to those who are critizing the information, be grateful that someone took the time to do it, if you want phone numbers added to it I suggest that you load the file to your poi edit program and make these changes, show some appreciation people and do what one member did find the error, list the correction, remember these gps devices aren't perfect

Thank you for correcting the

Thank you for correcting the error. I did not realize the procedure for pointing out my error in the reporting procedure. I now realize that the problem was not with the GPS itself but with the file. However, I do appreciate the trouble that someone took to compile it in the first place. I was just trying to help improve a very useful file. Thank you.

Sorry if I missed any updates

I have received some users for several of my files, both here at the factory and via email.

I am just starting to slowly recover and return to normal but I will be doing these one at a time and it may take a bit of time to get caught up.

If someone thinks, or knows, that I missed an update, please feel free to resend the update and I will do my best to get it in. I would rather get the update more than once than miss it.

Thanks for understanding
