I am new to the site and I am glad I found this site, lots of great information here and I hope at some point I can contribute also.
I was given a laptop with Microsoft Millennium. It does not have the M/S Office Picture Manager. Is there a freeware program that works very similar? I want to download the software to a thumbdrive & then install it on the laptop.
Cannot get Blueridge Parkway and Skyline Drive.gpx.htl to work on Garmin 3790LMT. I load it into my POIs with loader but nothing is there.
I tried opening the file (I am a Mac user) to look at it but it looks very different than my regular .cvs files.
What am I doing wrong??
We are planning on doing this trip in April and this would have been a godsend for us but??
There comes a time when you should just hand over the keys to someone else--permanently.

Data Shows Disastrous GPS Jamming
If you're sick and tired of receiving the printed yellow pages, there is a new opt out page available.
Edit - apparently the site is being inundated, so if you can't get it to work give it a couple of days.
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, red light cameras new Report out 2/1/2011
It's a common complaint, I hear and yes, have even lodged myself: red light cameras are ridiculous and a tool cities use just to rake in money through tickets. We like to portray ourselves as victims. After all, our driving is never the problem right?
Study says cameras save lives.
I'm not sure if this has been discussed but if it has please let me apologize for bringing it up.
This week we are recognizing Pwohlrab.
Thank you for the fire in the pants that motivated me to really start doing some major site cleanup last week. I will continue to clean up over the next few weeks.
I really appreciate the support that you have provided during the process.
For those of you who like to add a little HTML markup to your posts, you can now use the HTML "del" tag to show deleted text in posts at POI Factory.
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.

There seems to be a problem with commonsense these days leading to some very sad endings.
Paddling.net has launched a mapping project for canoe and kayak launch sites using Google Maps at http://www.paddling.net/launches/. Contributors are asked to add missing launch sites.
Does anyone know how to extract the sites from this or similar Google Maps into a GPS file of any flavor that can then be translated into other formats?
I am about to get a new DOCSIS 3.0 modem (Motorola SURFboard SB6120). My current modem, which is not DOCSIS 3.0 compatible, is connected to a Linksys BEFSR41 wired router. That router is not compatible with the speeds of 3.0.

When I download files from My Favorite Files, it seems that I have no problem downloading the first file. When I try to download the next file I have been getting the following message:
"Unable to download "(poi.csv)" from www.poi.factory.com
Unable to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found"
WHAT A WEEK!
Between late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning we had around 4 inches of snow that hardened into a slippery mess. We had some flurries for most of the rest of Wednesday and then the proverbial you-know-what hit the fan. From around 7:00 PM Wednesday night through Thursday morning we had another 10 inches of snow.
There seems to be a fair amount of poi files that are either obsolete or not maintained any more.
I suggest that the pois that are no longer used and updated be removed from the site. An example of these pois would be the individual rest area pois that are now combined in to the "rest areas combined file".
