New Inspection Station POI For Truckers

 

Truckers,, this is a file I am building here on POI-Factory. This File will contain locations such as Temperary Weigh stations and other inspection stations
that are usually not open except those special times of year. It will also have the locations of Border Control Stations and other places of this nature.

It is under Transportation.

You Can Help me by getting
The coordinates in this format ONLY!!! ie.
42.12345 -101.12345
Please send me an email with the coordinates, and a brief description of what it is.
This will be an on going file so check for updates often.

Any drivers that wants to help with questions or suggestions please feal free to call.

That's what Map Source is used for. Save the location you want the co-ordinates for in Favorites, download them to your computer via Map Source, and you will see the lat/lon readings. If you don't have map source call or e-mail Garmin and tell them you wish to manage your favorites, they usually respond by sending you a free copy of this program. Hope this helps...

What?

Auggie...

Inspection Station POI

If yall want to help the loactions should be as such
DO NOT SUBMIT PERMENANT WEIGH STATIONS There is a file for that allready..
This file is for places DOT uses ocasionally for inspections and portabable scales from time to time.
and Border Patrol Stations such as those on I-10
Also let me define Permenant Weigh Stations.
IF THE LOCATION HAS A BUILDING ON IT, IT IS PERMANANT. and does not belong in this file. EXCEPT
if it only has an inspection bay and no weigh house
then it does go in this file.
If your not sure check the (Randy McNally Moter Carriers Road Atlas), ALL PERMANENT WEIGH STATIONS are listed by state in this book. AND DO NOT BELONG IN THE {INSPECTION STATION POI}.. THOSE ARE IN THE {WEIGH STATION POI}

SOUND AND ICON

Yall that know how to make Icons
I want an icon for the Inspection Station File that has a Magnifing Glass in it. If someone knows how to
make Icons send it to me.
Also a sound file in a female voice that says
(Caution, Inspection Station Ahead).

Thanks yall

True but with hundreds of locations coming in that would be a real pain doing all that converting its much eaiser if they send them to me in Degrees

This may sound rude... but If you're going to ask for help...

Be happy you get it. Take what comes, convert if needed and use it - don't complain the 'gift' you get isn't to your liking...

Thanks for the info! I will

Thanks for the info! I will call Garmin tomorrow about getting Map Source. I needed to call them anyway to get them to send me the 2008 map for my c530 that I just got last week.
