Our contributor of the week is…wait for it…wait for it….. Turboccc!

Turboccc is a long time POI Factory member and 3 time Contributor of the Year.
This week he’s popped in to help some of our community trouble shoot some EPE issues in the Extra POI Editor (EPE) Problems/Issues/Comments discussion thread.

If you’d like to check out his page for Free Garmin Tools you can find it here

An honorable mention goes out to Jgermann for reminding us of the “donate” link to help us show our appreciation to TurboCCC and his wife ;P
for continuing to take time to support these tools.

Thanks TurboCCC, hope life is treating you well!

Great choice. Enjoy your week as a COW smile On the way to another COY....maybe.

Amen. And again I say Amen!


I have a number of POI files and I find that EPE has made the maintenance of them much easier.

For most of my files, I put in the address of new locations and let the geocode function get me close. Then I switch to "satellite" mode in order to find an appropriaate entrance to the location so I can keep the coordinates within 30 meters of the road on which someone would likely be driving (so alerts will activate).

Thanks so much! And, congratulations


Thanks TurboCCC

Thank you for fixing EPE. Enjoy your COW, you more than deserve it!

Great Job

Keep up the great work!


Well-deserved, Turboccc!


I just noticed I had a new tree in my collection smile
Thank you for the COW. So many familiar names in the thread here. Glad to see most of you are still here on POI-Factory and welcome to the new members. Well, you may not be so new. Haha! I need to visit more often.

Thanks Jgermann for the donate button's mention. I don't spend as much time maintaining EPE as before but it shows your appreciation and I thank you for that.

Reading Jgermann's comment here: Do you know that StreetView is now working again in EPE? I'm sure you do but I bet you did not know you could move in StreetView and then "Grab" the new coordinates for your POI? Aaaah! This sometimes can help you pinpoint the location you want. Well, the satellite view is great too for most cases but in a Shopping Mall, it may help you see the store front and locate the exact spot. I am just mentioning this because I did not remember I had done this feature until last week. LOL!

Enjoy everyone and see you around.

Best regards,


Congratulations Turboccc!

EPE is a legend... and You are the LEGEND behind the legend. Another well deserved honor. Thanks for all you do.
