Yes, this is one of the friendly forum I ever been into.

Go POI Factory!!!!

Absolutely !

I was on a different topic a couple seconds ago, and saw this:

Beginning with Street Atlas 2010, the file type drop-down box on the Street Atlas Draw File import dialog has a selection for "POI Factory/Garmin CSV File".

How Famous is that ? And when can we have official badges to show our membership to non-browsers ?

I stumbled on this place...

...when it was only about 2-3 weeks old. Back then there were about a dozen files all together, and maybe 40-50 members. My, how it's grown! I'm an old-timer, at the age of 4.

Hats off, and 3 cheers to the two original members.

POI-Factory

Without this site, I could not even begin to think of a place to find all the great POI's listed here.
I don't know of any hotel chains or companies that list POI's for their locations. Let alone all the fun ones found here.
Thanks to Miss POI and all the people who contribute here.

Outstanding

Actually all in all, I have not downloaded that many files from here because I haven't needed them. But I always found what I needed. I am especially pleased with the information that is traded here.

I keep coming back because I can find reliable information for other users from when maps become available to new technologies. I have never been disappointed! The website deserves all the accolades above.

It is not a sign of weakness to need other people; it is a sign of strength to have them!

I, like GC0110, happened on the POI-Factory over 4 years ago, when I got my first GPS, a Garmin StreetPilot C330. Have not looked back since. Awesome sight, and Awesome people here.

I don't think you can see the list. But if you right click and open on the user's name, you'll see http://www.poi-factory.com/user/##### on the url. It shows that the user is #####th member.

If you left click on a user name you will see "additional information" on the user. One of the headings is "GPS Brand". If you click the GPS company listed below this heading (Garmin in my case) you seem to get a complete list of all users that have Garmin listed as their GPS Brand. Looks like 7810 pages of names listed there.

585 Pages listing TomTom users and 393 pages of Magellan folks.

I'm really not sure if I've interpreted the list correctly but with 20 names per page and a total of 8788 pages listed, that would total 175,760 users for those 3 GPS manufacturer's products.
