This week we're recognizing, Coonhunter!
Coonhunter's been with POI Factory for over 10 years!

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.

A lot of topics have been discussed at POI Factory, and someone may have already answered your question.
Can anyone say what is meant by "general retainer' status on POI factory?
Anyone have tips for selecting noise canceling/ isolating earbuds for travel?
Does anyone have a feel for how the common OEM's (Garmin, TomTom, etc) of GPS units may be handling this?
This week we're recognizing, Bear007!
Bear007's been with POI Factory for over 8 years.
This week we're recognizing him for the help he provided in the CN NA 2020.10. It helped one member in particular who'd been having difficulties with his Zumo 550 for several years.
Thanks for continuing to share your experience with our POI Factory community, Bear007!
I received a suggestion this week:
"I'd like to nominate Mcginkleschmidt for Contributor Of the Week for
making the 2020.10 update's large .jcv file available.
Not only is it available but it's available in unzipped format. That was a heck of a nice job."
So this week's Contributor of the Week is Mcginkleschmidt!

Metricman has been with POI Factory for over a decade!
Last week he updated his Casinos USA file adding 63 locations and refreshed his main Williamsburg, Virgina file.
Interested on some feedback from users who actually use a on line tax service. Have used a tax preparer for years but thinking about trying one on line. Turbo Tax looks good and is listed on the IRS site. Like others a little concerned about the security . Any positive thoughts?
I have an in dash Garmin based GPS (430n) in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler. It works as expected and POI's can be loaded, albeit painfully.
I am thinking about getting a new truck soon and I am wondering if any of the manufacturers of 1 ton pickups have GPS with lifetime maps. Currently my Ford wants $150 for an update which I refuse to pay.
I would also like to be able to upload POIs.
Why is the POI Factory website listed as 'NOT SECURE'?
Most every website has long-since moved to a secure HTTPS protocol, however this site is still HTTP (Insecure). It should be HTTPS (Secure).
"Your connection to this site is not secure.
You should not enter any sensitive information on this site (for example, passwords or credit cards), because it could be stolen by attackers."
This is for all of you who use your smartphone as a GPS.
For $ 40.00 you can turn your GPS display into a HUD.
