My son went out of state the other day and his car broke down. I went to help him and had to get his car towed to a gasstation to get his car fixed. Since we had NY licence plates, I was told that I got ripped off for the price..
What I am thinking is to get everyones favorte Auto repair spots and put them in a poi, This way, If someone needs one, Just look it up and can be more trusted than just finding the one nearest you.
What do you think?
CARS in Beaufort SC. If you're visiting to watch your son or daughter graduate from Parris Island and you need your car worked on, they're small, but I've found these people to be top shelf.

I just downloaded the poi and it looks great. I thank you on the idea and props to others who helped make this happen. I’m looking forward to the next update.
Ok, I am lazy, where is the POI file located?
Thanks a bunch!!!!!
we may have to take half of your magic genie lamp away! LoL

New to Tx and needed O2 sensors on my VW to pass emissions. Goodyear didn't have the correct tools to do the job and didn't know of any shops in or near town that worked on VW's. Did a search for VW auto repairs austin tx and stumbled upon this thread found this referral,

They were very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and didn't rake me over the coals. They are located 40 minutes away but I think they are worth making the drive to.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, again for posting this info. If you need custom work done in PA I recommend
DTR Racing Phoenix Racing Complex, Phoenixville : 1.610.496.4688
I sure wish I could help. But the only time I bring the car in, is for body repair. If I can't fix it, I sell it and move on to another car. I will post it here, but if you live in the area, and the insurance company cuts you a check, bring the car here for repairs. He normally does it for 1/2 what the other shops estimates are.

When we moved to Louisville KY 16 years ago, this garage came highly recommended. It has since changed owners with the original owner retiring, but the same high quality of service has continued. The new owner expanded to a second location about 5 years ago. I am still looking for a comparable repair shop in north Georgia since we recently moved.

This poi seems to be a popular item too and btw, I will give you the credit in the poi at the end of the line.. so come on.. lets get 100 by End of December!!!
This is a great thread....
Any good body repair shop in Mass?
This is a grungy looking shop with some grungy looking people, but they sure can fix a car at a fair price. If you are past your warranty period and need help in the South West part of Queens or the Eastern part of Brooklyn I recommend:

Before I moved to AZ, my wife and I always took our vehicles to the one of the local Midas Muffler shops. The owner, Mark, is the most honest person there is. If asked, he will tell you if a reapir is worth doing or if it's better doing something else. I had an old truck that was leaking fluids from 3 spots. After inspection, he told me to not get it fixed, but to keep putting fluids in it and it would run a long time.

This database is a great idea!
We updated the file as of 11/19/07.. It now has 85 entries in place.. We still want to hit the 100 mark before the End of year. So come on.. add your favorte place.. Would be nice to get at least 1 or 2 entries from each state..
For those that did summit a location, Thank you very much.. I will be compling a list and placing it in this tread soon..
Here's a good local one I use. One man shop. Very honest and reasonable rates. Very competent. Works out of his farm/rural location off Highway 11 near Pinewood (Rainy River) in Northwestern Ontario

Keep up the good work
Squirrel Pie, Mag Crossover
This is a great project. I have been experimenting with it in my Crossover and it works great. There are a couple of limitations however. It's a big continent and I'm trying to customize some POI files for my particular travel areas, so I may want all of the east half but none of CA for example. To accomplish this I use the sort functions on Excel before using my POI editor to load them. It would be extremely useful in this aspect if csv files followed a standard format, i.e. Long, Lat, Name, Address, City, State, etc. That way they are easy to sort and manipulate in a spread sheet to meet your personal requirements BEFORE slapping them into your GPS. Not sure how other makes handle the info in this forums csv but the Mag handles the info just fine and I put it onto the SD card to keep as much of the internal memory free as possible. I have 'cleaned' up the current posted csv file to a standardized format as above and will post it if anyone is interested.

Austin, TX 78758
I've found that they are pretty good/nice people and won't rip you off or make you get repairs that you don't need. I've gone to them for a few years and feel comfortable with them. I should mention that they are in no way 'cheap' just reliable.
I do try to keep this csv file in a certain format.. The long and lat MUST come first, Then the address, after that is a phone # if provided and a short discription from the user that left me the info.. At the end I put in a "Summited By: ..." so that the person gets the proper credit for the entry.. This project is for ALL POI users and not just mine.. I am just the holder of it and am responsibe for the updates that people like you give me.. I am counting on all POI-Factory users and no where else to get this data.. I can very easy do a search for the "Best of" but then it wouldn't be good data.. I am counting on all of the POI-Factory users to give me this info.. I may find the cord. from the addresses but that it..
I want to thank everyone that has made this work.. AND to thank anyone that can give more info.
My goal is to hit 100 by end of year.. I need all of your help to do so.. Only 1 more month left.. Come on and help out.. and it gives you credit leaving me a message!!
I did a search and replace to change "Summitted" to "Submitted" in the csv. This is a fix needed for the next version. Thanks for all your work bobkz.
Did not see that.. That why everything I do I need a spell checker.. Thanks for the heads up.. I will be putting a new file out soon since I got more places, I will make sure I put the right spelling in..
It's family owned by this really nice guy Omar, very straightforward and direct. Most people from my church go to him. Very honest guy, although a little gruff, but in a old man sorta way (if you know what I mean ).

Across from Farmer Girl restaurant.
Sevcik's Service Center (http://www.leonsevciks.com/)
2200 Longmire Drive, College Station, TX 77845. 979-696-0065. It is the Shell station at that location on the Garmin fuel PoI. Mark and Pat run their late father's service station with the same family and value oriented business model that Leon lived and breathed. Not the cheapest place (but not close to being the most expensive either) but they are reliable and dedicated. They helped me many times as a student with a flat tire or emergency repair to get me to school or work on time. Not open weekends but a top notch place. My family drives in from Houston to have the Sevcik's perform their non-emergency work.
