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

out for a while

I have not been on for a while due to a stroke that affects me right side - wheel chair and walker but no right hand for a while. I wont be driving me wife will but I set up my garmin an the right side so I can navigate. I wont be able to update my files. But I am still a POI Factory Member!

My poi not available to others

I've uploaded a poi to poi factory, I can find it if I'm logged in, but others cant find it, it doesn't show up on my list of maintained files and it doesn't come up in a search. What am I/did I do wrong? It also doesn't come up when another member who is logged on searches.

Incredible StartPage

MSN changed the home page with the new and improved one.Not really what I want as a start page now. Found this extension for Chrome. Simple to set up and especially like the note taking part on home page.

Why Garmin POI Files do not work?

My wife has the Cyclops file USCanadaCyclopsSample.GPI on her Garmin 50LM GPS (she says it came with it) and it works - notifies us when approaching cameras. I downloaded the Garmin POI Loader (without the USCanadaCyclopsSample.gpi) for my GPS and it did not allow me to get notifications as hers does. Looks like Cyclops is the way to go???

NYC Long Island School Speed Cameras

Are they included? They are not showing after download?

What Multiple Port USB Car Chargers Are Highest Power?

I have some of these now, but I need at least one more. I want three, or more, USB ports and I want them to be at least 2 amps on 5 volts. What do you guys suggest?

Here is one I am considering:

Garmin3597LM

At the price this model is sold for do anyone knows the reason why Garmin added a school safety zone alert feature and not a red light camera feature???
