Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – December 2018

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.

Saving Space on my GPS

Any reason for me to trim the GPS files to include only the States and Provinces that I typically travel to. Just thinking of the storage space on my Tiguan GPS system.

What are other experiences ?

Conversion problem with Extra POI Editor

I have downloaded the CSV version of ‘’Campgrounds and RV Parks Combined’’ by TXRVer.

When I open it in Extra POI Editor, I see the camping names and address and when export it in GPX format then Import it in Basecamp, all I see is the camping name.

I must have something set to a wrong value but can’t find it.

LED Traffic Lights in the Winter

We recently had a nice Fall blizzard here in the Midwest with around a foot of snow and high winds. The drifting and snow where it normally doesn't go was interesting but I saw one thing of concern.

Fitness Trackers

Time for me to shop for a new one. My old Fitbit Charge HR truly keeled over. I purchased it in 2015, so I figure that's pretty good for what it was.

I'm now looking at mostly Garmin's (ya think they'll give me a discount if I purchase online using my POI Factory email? razz JK).

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!!! May you give thanks for your bountiful blessings and remember those who are less fortunate.

This week we're recognizing, Mahoney, DonaldB530 and Ajasaro!

We're able to provide POI files free of charge to our members in part due to the countless hours of our volunteer POI file maintainers.
I thought it would be fitting to show our gratitude this week to three of our most prolific file maintainers, Mahoney, DonaldB530 and Ajasaro.

Check the simple things (dirty connection)

The in car power supply charger for my Garmin got a bit erratic. It would work for awhile and then cut out.

I tried plugging into two different cars and had no blue light and no power. Figured it couldn't be a fuse, because the operation was erratic. A fuse either works or it doesnt, right.

Installing Android Apps On A Samsung Chromebook: Could It Be Used For Navigation?

I bought a Samsung Chromebook for my wife several years ago. It has since be replaced, so the Chromebook doesn't see much use. I did run across articles about adding Android to Chromebooks. My first reaction was, "Hey, that's cool." But, then, I wondered what sort of things you would/could do that the Chromebook can't already do.
