New to POI Factory

Just a quick hello to the forum. New user of custom POIs and stumbled upon the POI Factory.

Long time GPS user...first one was TomTom software for an HP iPAQ personal data assistant with a BT connected GPS receiver. After many different models, today I use a BMW Navigator V on a K1600GTL.

Need info on an AM antenna array

I have the coordinates of an AM antenna array, and I would like to know how to obtain information on the FCC licensee, frequency, etc. It is a 3 tower array, and the coordinates of the center tower are: 39deg 27' 22.71"N, and 77deg 19' 25.17"W. This is in the Mt. Pleasant community in Frederick County, Maryland. Is there a way to get the info I want from the FCC website?

Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – June 2016

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.

Native mapping software for Mac (or PC) with easy POI loading

I switched to a smaller rig and gave up my Datastorm antenna which had given me internet access and campground info anywhere, anytime. I mostly do dispersal camping and rarely know when and where I’m going next and rarely have internet access. To duplicate that anytime/anywhere internet access, I now needed mapping software on my computer which would let me load POI's easily.

Forced to Windows 10

Well, I have had two computers - on their own - start the process of updating from Windows 7 to Windows 10. I found my home desktop just beginning the process and was able to kill it and have it revert to Win 7.

One of the computers in our Television Ministry at church actually finished the update and was asking for us to accept the Terms. We pressed "Decline" and it let us revert to Win 7.

Check your maps! Lession learned the hard way!

Ugh
I had gotten everything ready or our trip back east. All of the points of interested that we needed were created and loaded into my Garmin, the power cable was ready to go, and then I made a fateful decision... I updated my maps.

New to the site, not new to nuvi's

Hi, not new to the site (been a lurker) for a while.
Finally registered and hope to be part of the community.

I've been using Garmin Nuvi's since the 350.
Currently have a nice little 3590 that does the job great!

Thanks for letting me be part of the community

Using Here Maps

I recently noticed that using Here maps offline with bluetooth activated on my cell phone, the voice prompts disappear. Turning off bluetooth will bring it back to life. Does anybody experience the same?
