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.

The Weather Channel’s practice of naming winter storms is:
9. A lot of attention seeking publicity
8. Better than the old school practice such as the Winter of 2010 or Blizzard of 1947.
7. A guaranteed money making idea.
6. Where are they getting these ‘new age’ names anyway?
5. A prelude to them naming heat waves in the summer.
I have som trouble with poiloader and Extra poi editor.
When i try to convert the gpx file i made in EPE poiloader say it is a computor format error in line two in the file.
I used wordpad to open the file and i have some problem to show it here, i try again:
It is -38 degrees Celsius this morning, with a wind chill of -49 Celsius. That's around -56 Fahrenheit for those working in that measurement!
Earlier this week we had a blizzard go through and dump 20 - 30 centimeters of snow. It was so bad the Trans-Canada Highway was closed for almost two days.
Where I can find the poi for the RLC of the south of USA only.???

The upgrade for, Garmin, North America 2014 is now for 19.95 because the Blak Friday, y all ready did, the only problem is I have to add a mini SD card, because is to big.
The GPX pages at POI Factory now include a button to download a converted file in CSV format for Rand McNally.
This means Rand McNally GPS users can use POI files that are maintained in GPX format without needing to go through an extra conversion step.
On pages with both GPX and the converted CSV formats, Garmin users should continue to use GPX format.
