Every time I watch this, it makes me laugh.
It reminds me of stories posted here about owner's "adventures" with their GPS when they follow it's directions too literally.
I got a new Garmin for Christmas (1450), I ran across this site a week ago and WOW do I love it.
I loaded a few POI's on the unit, now today I need to go back and add the icon's.
I've just completed about 1000-mile drive around the state of CA (LA - Mammoth Lakes - S. Lake Tahoe - Reno - S. Lake Tahoe - SF - Fresno - Sequoia National Park - LA). I have current.gpx file from my Nuvi 760. As I understand it, this file keeps track of my trip.
Hi, I am new here. I have had my GPS, but am going to take a trip and I thought I would update my GPS. What better way then getting some new POI files.
Press release from Clear Channel on their expanded offerings:

Checking or planning a route can sometimes require going to other sources for coordinates. One major online source even, for a time, seemed to suggest downloading of routed trips to a GPS, but that source never has exit number expect on "get directions" printing.
Anyone know why they don't give map image that include Exit Numbers.
I wonder if anyone else has had this thought (and wish)
I often read a post (using the Unread Post route) and think that I would like to post an answer but not just at that moment; maybe I want to look something up or test something on my unit.
I would love to be able to mark the post as "unread" to me so I could return at a later time.
This week we are recognizing VinceCANuvi and Tonytruck.
VinceCANuvi, Blew through the "What POI's would you like to see on here" thread like a tornado and answered everyone's questions. If there was not a file available, he made one. I love to see members take this sort of initiative to help make this community better. Great Job!!!!
This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

Now that I have 4 years of experience being a forum moderator I can predict how things are going to go depending on what time of year it is.
I am being proactive this year in hopes that we can avoid all the after holiday bs that goes on around here.
I know that the holidays can cause stress and leave you feeling upset with people in your life.
Watch the Video.
: I received this Garmin version as Christmas gift and after exploring this site I realize that this version is specific to Best Buy and featured on Black Friday 2009..more than one year ago. I also received (believe it or not) a TomTom
I recently visited NYC (Manhattan) and was unaware of their lack of public restrooms and public accessible restrooms. Such thoughts never entered my mind beforehand. Anyone living in the NYC area (or elsewhere) with a desire to help give relief to weary travelers by creating a POI file list of restroom locations available, both public and business owned, would be a real hero in my mind.
I just bought a new Garmin 1450 and a stumbled across this site and found out I can install or build my own PIO files.
I just found POI Factory, having just seen it mentioned in a post in the GPS Review Forums.
We own a nüvi® 265WT and nüvi® 260W & have never used a custom POI. I just updated the firmware & maps in our 265WT & now I'll try a custom POI or two

Happy new year to all of you !
I'm a newbie here and have a stupid question:
I convert GPX files into POI but I'd like to be able to have the elevations with the coordinates !
Do you think it's possible ?
What I wan to do is create a 3D cad file from the GPX data, then I do need the elevations
Be Happy; be Healthy,and be Sober so we can all do this again next year. Happy New Year!
