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

Hello and Thanks

Hi All. I just found you and have been downloading my head off. Thought its about time to say thanks.

I frequent a few RV forums and that kinda led me here. Currently planning a cross-country trip for next year. So far, have downloaded National Park RV campgrounds, Rest Areas, Utah Arches. I even had to edit a CSV to make it work for us.

Google Hangouts

I have been looking at the Google Hangout site http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/hangouts/ . There are a few features that I feel may benefit the membership here at POI Factory. The program is available at Google Play,App Store and for your computer.The one feature that I feel may be of interest is the video calling that supports of to 10 people at a time.

Returned faulty unit, I was promised a full refund only thing is they (HP) didnt say what year.Made several phone calls and received same number of promises. Their reps speak English but do not understand it. Filled a dispute with my cc company, they wrote to HP, no answer. If they (HP) are not out of business they should be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

Montana Considering 85 MPH Speed Limit

Just read a story that Montana is considering raising the speed limit on the Interstates to 85 MPH. I have driven I-15 many times, and you might be able to go that fast on some stretches on the flat land to the east (I-94). But I'm not sure about that speed on any Interstate west of Billings.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Hopefully, our GPS units will get us to Grandma’s house without taking us over the river and through the woods.

The link is 2 years old but the message still applies.

It looks like it will be tough “sledding” here in the Northeast with 8” of snow predicted in many areas this Thanksgiving eve.
