Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – April 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.

This Girl Should Be Banned From Owning A Phone

This 21 year old hit a cyclist while texting and her comment was “I just don’t care because I’ve already been through a lot of bulls**t and my car is like pretty expensive and now I have to fix it,”

Extra POI Editor

In looking at a POI file with EPE, my map portion of EPE is now much smaller and won't open up to a larger window upon double-click. I can't see any change in my settings in the preferences menu. Can anyone help me?

WiFi-Lite

When I try and load the WiFi-Lite file with POI Loader I get "There was an unexpected error during the transfer of the custom POI file.

Any ideas out there?

Anyone else have this problem?

Spring sprung

Using my GPS to do a tour of the locals parks. Great day to be on a road trip.

Start with newest post.

Right now when I go into a discussion forum it shows the oldest post and the newest post is pages away.

Is there a way to show the newest post first?

Heartbleed Bug

I don't think this has been posted anywhere:

A flaw in software that's widely used to secure Web communications means that passwords and other highly sensitive data could be exposed. Some say they've already found hundreds of Yahoo passwords.

All Yahoo users, change your Yahoo password.

Geocaching or terrorist that is the question

Spokybob

I noticed a couple of weeks ago that I had not seen his name pop up for awhile. Today, upon doing some further research, I found that spokybob passed away early last month.

Spokybob was a regular in the forums. He was one of the first members to reach out to me in friendship when I started here at POI Factory. He even sent me pics from a couple of his "Bucket List" adventures.

Multiple POI Display in Map Mode?

I notice that in google maps I can search POIs and all the POI icons show up in the map. I can then chose based on mapped location.

In my Garmin I can see POIs sorted by closest to me, which is good, but only in a list. I can only chose a POI then I can see that one icon on the map.

The Linux Alternative

With the demise of MS Windows XP on April 8, 2014, there is an alternative to moving on to the next version of MS Windows. That is using Linux.

Zip Code gps file information

I recently bought a new gps and wanted to add some poi csv files. I got those poi files from here but found that many of them had missing information (no city, state or zip code) so I decided to try to update them with the data from some gps-zip code files.

Parking enforcement in Arlington County. Money! Money! Money!

I used to live in Arlington County; the Rosslyn area to be precise. In a word parking is lousy to the max. City fathers and mothers are more interested in development then in the quality of life along the major corridors.

Can you add the large JCV file to the Nuvi 2797?

I tried to add the large JCV file to my 2797 but could not find a JCV folder in the internal card. So I created a JCV folder inside the Garmin folder and put the JCV file there but it didn't work. Any suggestions?

My wave files don't work anymore after switching to windows 8

When I was using my windows xp computer, I had installed wave files ( my gpsr doesn't have an mp3 player) to match some of my poi's and it worked fine. I had installed the sox file in my Garmin folder with poi loader.
