Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – May 2015

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

POI Factory: Layout Adjustments for Mobile

Today we're implementing a few website layout adjustments to better support mobile screen sizes.

If you're viewing the site with a smaller screen, you'll find the layout now adjusts to fit your screen width. Most noticeably, the second column is "pushed down" below the main column as the screen becomes smaller.

Before Posting Questions

Please check the FAQs and use the search function before posting questions.

A lot of topics have been discussed at POI Factory, and someone may have already answered your question smile

Apple Maps may get boost from extra-precise GPS

http://www.cnet.com/news/apple-maps-may-get-boost-from-extra...

Apple Maps may soon be able to tell where you are on a map with more precise detail than standard GPS technology. Apple purchased GPS firm Coherent Navigation, which uses low-orbit communication satellites to track location within inches -- rather than feet.

Come And Get It

Garmin Express v4.0.21.0 is out. Your call to update or not. wink

GPS Navigation On A Watch

I currently am still rocking an old school Casio G-Shock wristwatch. I am well aware that there are connected watches these days, but I have not made the switch yet. Anyway, for those that have made the switch, would the ability to use GPS maps on a watch be of any real benefit or is it simply a novelty, at best?

Fitness Trackers & Wearables

I've been researching fitness trackers for awhile, wavering on if I really NEED one or just WANT one, and which one should I get if I were to break down and make a purchase.

I see there are several with GPS capability, the Garmins(of course), it looks like there's a TomTom highly rated by runners and a Magellen.
The Fitbit's seem to be the most popular, they just don't have GPS capability.

So you think you have any privacy, think again GPS and cell phone sell you out

A Contributor's Wish List

As a contributor, I wish I could do certain things like:

1. Upload bmp icons or files together with the gpx and csv files, instead of having to email them to photos@poi-factory.com.
2. Post image files--jpg, bmp, gif, etc.--in topics and forums to describe or illustrate a point, directly instead of using links to photo-sharing sites.

HAPPY
