Panama is coming up on ten years with POI Factory.
He checks in regularly, has his Contributor badge as well as Windmill and Stars. I've enjoyed seeing his recent travel updates in both the Chit Chat and Keeping The Windmill Alive threads.

Congratulations, Panama, enjoy your week in the pasture!

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

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

Transfer of POIs

I currently have speed and red light cameras and audible alerts for them loaded in my portable (vehicle) Garmin GPS.

I recently purchased a 2014 Chev Silverado that has a built in navigation systems using a NOVDEC system. It has red light camera visual logos but apparently no way to sync and audible warning tone with the visual warning.

And now... comments about Apple; this site states --- Apple Isn't Your Friend

Apple has been steadily positioning itself as the anti-Facebook for a while now, and between verbal jabs aimed at the social media giant and privacy-focused product decisions, the patient goodwill campaign seems to be working. Unfortunately, Apple isn’t going to save us, and now’s the time to keep your guard up.

POI Factory Password

I regularly receive an incorrect password message when logging in after being away for 4-5 days. It is easily corrected with the forgotten PW link to my email but takes a couple more steps.

Does anyone else have this problem?

This week we're recognizing, Mahoney!

This weekend marks the beginning of the summer travel season and our Rest Areas with Restrooms and Rest Areas Combined-USA files start "trending".
They are definitely a life saver for those of us who have to travel for hours on highways with few towns!

GPS Receiver For Clock Time?

I have been using my old Sony Dream Machine AM/FM/TV/Weatherband clock radio for years now. When I bought it years ago, I liked having the ability to receive TV audio. That was before digital (ATSC) TV, so that is no longer an option. Anyway, I like how it works, EXCEPT that it does not keep great time. That has prompted me to start looking for a suitable replacement.
