This is the official POI Factory Joke thread.
It will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.
The news tonight says the DC County Council will likely reduce fines for speeding from $125 to $75 per instance.
That was the good news.
The bad news is that the Council is likely to approve "dozens more cameras" all over the District. They meet next week to decide.
Anyone want to guess what they decide???
TALLAHASSEE — Drivers would be banned from manually typing or reading texts, emails or other electronic messages while operating a car under legislation filed in the Senate Tuesday.
I'm looking for a portable GPS unit that would allow me to program my own route restrictions.
I drive a coach bus, and currently there are no GPS units that conform to what I need. I'm trying to find a unit where I could do my own road restrictions.
The one that I presently use, is the Garmin StreetPilot 7200, but that has been discontinued for a while.

Thanks for all you do to contribute to this community, spokybob!
I'm in the early stages of thinking about buying my next car. I was looking at the Subaru Outback with Eyesight. However, you can't get Eyesight without getting the Suburu GPS, and according to Subaru Customer Service, there is no mechanism for importing POIs into a Subaru GPS.
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.
Nothing happens when I "right Click" on garmin cvs and click on "save target as". I've tried to download many POI but nothing happens. HELP
I currently have an old nuvi 255 and have recently bought a 3760lmt. Since I don't plan on using the FM feature can I use my old 255 power cable to my new cradle to power my 3760?
Has anybody heard of or used AG Gloves.
I'm sure that all of us have much to be thankful for--our employment, our families, our economy, our surviving another hurricane, and on and on. Have a great day peeps!
Just want to wish ALL a Happy Thanksgiving regardless of WHAT you eat and WHERE you live!
In another thread, EV Driver mentioned a sound for RLC.

To promote small businesses, American Express is giving a $25 credit for a single transaction of $25 or more at participating small businesses on November 24th.
I did this last year.
Canadians have a postal code, that's totally different than the American Zip Codes. eg: M2L 1Z8
Some gas pumps ask for your Zip code when you swipe at the pump and the Zip you enter must be the same as on the mailing address for your card.
One suggestion, was to use the numbers in the postal code and add two zeros on the end. I somehow recall that it worked many years ago, near Florida.
Shell has a Fuel Rewards Network (FRN) - http://www.fuelrewards.com/
Not a credit card - but a card you can pick up at paricipating Shell stations. Then go to the above site, spin to lock in you initial discount (per gallon, for the next fill up) - anywhere from $0.05 to $0.25 off per gallon.
I see that poi-factory now has more than 300,000 members.
Congrats to JM and Globe Turtle and all the members that make ths site the best.
After reading some of the posts here extolling the virtues of Notepad++, I decided to install it. I poked around in it a few times, but I didn't like it and want to uninstall it. But how do I that? It's not listed as an installed program in Control Panel. I probably could delete the folder where it lives, but that sounds a bit hairy. Any suggestions?
