By my calculations POI-Factory is less than 650 members away from a quarter of one million. WOW!
A very popular place indeed!
and a lot of fun lol
Does the lucky guy who gets to be 250,000 get a prize.
POI Factory has got to be the best POI website on the internet! I cannot beleive I been a member goin on 4 years now! You get accurate, fiendly advice from our forums here! Lots of archived info just a search click away! I dont even bother going to other websites for POIs anymore, cause POI Factory has all a person needs!
When you have friendly, smart members and a great environment to share information, not to mention Miss POI, there is no-where to go but up!
You go POI Factory!!
I know if I need info. The posters on this board are very helpfull. Good place to be a member.
Go POI Factory!!!!
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 ?
Yes, this place is a very friendly & helpful place you can ever find on internet. Thanks to the founders & supporters!
Informative, helpful and friendly forums.
...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.
I am glad to be a member here, having contributed several POI files and hopefully more in the future.
This is a remarkably civil forum given the large number of members, and full of great info too.
GC0110.........You write very well for only 4 years old
Wow That's alot of people.
Where and how can we see the list and the seniority of all the members?
And were else can so many strangers interact and respect each other and not have to ask to be friends and be accepted.
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.
As a webmaster I know how much work goes into a website. Thank you Miss POI.
In my short time here I have asked a lot of newbe questions but never once got talked down to. The members are great.
Thank you everyone.
I've said it before... And have no plans of stopping any time soon, either !
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.
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.
New to Poi-Factory, and am very much looking forward to learning about my new GPS. From my brief browsing, the members on here are very friendly and helpful.
No not a prize....just a lot of GREAT INFORMATION...and a hell of a lot of fun and enjoyment.....YOU GUYS ARE GREAT..keep it going.....

Now for all newbies around, by all means do join the fun of participating. Ah, let's remain civilized, of course - not overly, just "correct"
And of course DO pay your respects to our Webmistress Miss POI - Miss POI for GPS President !
A true indication of its value to all us GPSrrs.
A wealth of information, knowledge and good people all interested in GPS systems.
Thank you Miss Poi for letting this happen.
I can remember when I first got my Garmin and looking all over the Net for a place to find out information or a group to join to learn more about the features of a GPS, it has been a great pleasure being of member of one of the finest discussion groups in the country, thanks to our great hosts.
What a great site for all of the POIs and help you could want. Responders are so quick with multiple solutions. Its no wonder the membership has grown like wild fire.
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.
Its such a great site with tons of useful POIs. I'm not surprised the membership is so large!
The earliest member I see on the list is tsimpson #11
who are the first 10?
Zadmi is the first. http://www.poi-factory.com/user/1####
Miss POI? JM? Plus their other Admin hats? Plus, Robert F. Breuning is our most senior General Maintainer. i.e. Two-Stars
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.
Wow that's very cool! Keep em joining!
Wow thats a lot of people!
I guess this means we won't be able to gather after all, we'll never find large enough a place.
Well, we'll "find" it all right with its coordinates - but I'm wondering if such a place exists....
This is a great site... was especially helpful when I first started using one.
with 20 users per page & 11153 pages
Cool, that's over 223000 members which is over 47000 more than the method I used to above.
Thiat's a testament to the moderators and community.
What they said!
I have yold a bunch of people about it and everyone loves it
Yes it's a great place to get useful information.
Can't live without it now...I'm hooked!!
I have beena member for 3 years 17 weeks.You will not find a better group of people to share your GPS interest with .
