This week we are recognizing, mgarledge!

Mary has been a member of POI Factory for coming up on 7 years.

She’s friendly, supportive, helps keep me on my toes (like the gentle reminder that the Chitchat thread usually has an actual week attached to it, not just the month razz) and she was our #1 poster over the last week .

Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – February 2016

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.

270 miles off track because of spelling error

When Noel Santillan typed the word Laugarvegur instead of Laugavegur into his rental car’s GPS, the New Jersey resident couldn’t have imagined that the extra “r” would make him something of a celebrity in Iceland.

Front and backup camera on 1 monitor with split view

Hi,

does anyone here know a system with 2 (waterproof and night vision) cameras (front + rear) hard-wired to a monitor with a permanent split view of both cameras (not connected to the reverse lights)?

Link directly to quotes in Web pages or POI Factory Forum.

Here is a on line program I found http://citebite.com/ .Nice for linking directly to quotes in Web pages or POI Factory Forum. Pretty straight forward on how to use. Done a sample video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_4P5GVPF44

Backup Cameras

With the problems in different states about GPS's blocking the view and specific locations etc. is there the same thing going on with the backup camera? I've also read it's going to be mandatory by 2018 on cars. Anyone have any info?

Server Move - Jan 29, 2016

POI Factory moved to a new server overnight. All of the content from the old server is now available here.

The move started at midnight Eastern time and was completed in about an hour.

Because Internet service providers sometimes save IP addresses for a while, it may take several hours before everyone is able to reach the web site on the new server.

Thank you for your patience.

License Plate Readers

I found this to be very interesting. Not sure what I think of this practice - although I think the country needs to be discussing this technology.

Bing Maps

Had not used Bing Maps for some time. With discussion on another post about finding coordinates. I ran across this information that may be of use to some of our members. Plan to start using it more myself now that I see its advantage.

best comercial motorcoach device

I am looking to purchase a new GPS mainly used for commercial motorcoach use. I am debating if a RV gps would be better than one for trucking. I would like the tools for CDL drivers but not an issue since we are using electronic logging. Anyone here use one for motorcoaches?

Anyone else having trouble downloading files today?

Trying to download several updates and file names are named csv?node=8700 or something similar. Never seen this before.

Thanks
