Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – July 2014

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.

Built-in Auto GPS Systems

I have a 2014 Toyota Sienna with the built-in navigation system. Not only is the info vague, but 15% of the time totally erroneous! It is deficient enough that it will play a part in any decision to stay with Toyota in the future. Is anyone aware of any built in systems using Garmin data? I always found the hand held Garmin units to be spot on!

New member can't see POI files

I created a list of VW TDI (diesel) mechanics (http://www.poi-factory.com/node/43101) and put this link in a TDI forum on another site. The folks over there claim they can't see the POI file on this site. Looks like you need to be registered/logged into this site to see files. However, one person did register and still can't see the files associated with this link. Any clues?

These smart shoes vibrate to point you in the right direction

Sounds cool. Maybe an insole would be better though. I can's see me wearing anything like what's pictured.

Push Pins File - Streets & Trips 2013

I have been using the above program to create my GPS Routes and have modified the Push Pins in the POI Mega File to fit my needs thus removing and adding pushpin sets.

My computer is old and slow so I purchased a new laptop and reinstalled Street & Trips 2013 from the original disk, but the POI Mega File has to be downloaded and installed from the net.

Tap..Tap...Tap Is this thing on????

Well its been a few years, and a couple of million miles since I last logged on. Nice to see the site still here.

How's everyone doing?

Garmin 3597 LMTHD - Finally in one city.

Newbie saying hello to POI Factory members

Good morning,

After browsing though a few discussions on POI Factory, I decided to register.

I have been using a IWAY600C GPS for the past 6 or 7 years. Microsoft Streets & Trips is used to plan my routes and then convert them to GPX before uploading them to my IWAY600C. It works ... but the maps are completely out of date, etc.

National POI Factory Get-Together ??

While responding to Bobkz’s forum topic on a POI Factory member get-together in the NYC area,

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/30040

I wondered about the possibility of taking this idea to the next level. Perhaps a national get together next summer somewhere in the Midwest?
