Contributors Of The Week 2015-03-02

 

This week we are recognizing JanJ!

JanJ recently passed the 6 year mark with POI Factory.

Last week he was busy starting and re-invigorating multiple forum discussions.
Not only is this helpful for the member asking questions but it also brings new visitors to our site seeking current answers to various GPS and POI issues.
This helps to keep POI Factory relevant as a community and resource.

Thanks JanJ!

Congratulations...JanJ!

Enjoy your week as a COW smile

I think the most important

I think the most important thing I did was de-bug the USB Mini cable interface for powering up older Nuvi's off of chargers that:

"weren't supposed to run the NUVI, Just Charge it!"

I will take credit for that.... But as for the other's..... It was me blindly trying to use 660 features in a 2689, with no manual assistance!!

YOU FOLKS HERE... ARE THE BEST!!!

I'm "Along for the 'Ride'", and what an Exciting "Ride" it has become!!!

I take this with humble gratitude..... And don't be surprised if I post something in the future that is less than Stellar, as I'm Making this up as I go along!!!

Actually, since the

Actually, since the Windshield Mount connector/Power interface of my 660 "went dead", my options were throw the unit away, or get it to power off the Mini USB Port....

I chose to keep this old unit going!!!

It was a Combination of Lucky Web Surfing, and delicate soldering....

Actually I just received the parts from EBAY to make a cable that will provide power and "ID" to the 660 without soldering the plug to the 660.

I should have that tested by tomorrow PM...
