This week we’re recognizing Ralph6410 and Chickenhawks!

Both are Canadian members who’ve created school zone alert files for their cities. This is a lot of work, as each school usually requiring several different alert areas to cover their affected streets.

Happy Veterans Day

Happy Veterans Day to all of my fellow vets. I will take some time today and think about my fellow Army buddies. I will especially think about the ones that I lost in Vietnam. Enjoy our day. (All gave some; some gave all.)

POI update notification

Is there an option to get notifications when d/l POI's are updated?

Handicap placards

I found out today that if you have a house in Florida and another state and if you have a car registered in Florida and your handicap placard is from your home state. As long as it has Florida plates on it you must have a Florida placard in the window.
It costs $15.00 and is only good for three months.
You can download the forms on line but must go to a Florida doctor to have it filled out.

Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things!

This week we’re recognizing CraigW!

Not only was CraigW our top poster last week (in quantity) but this thread Another POI Problem (Wav Files With 3597) shows the quality of his posts.

Thanks for continuing to be an excellent example of the kind of helpful and knowledgeable community members we have here at POI Factory.

Voice Command

I have a question. I have a 2430 that I like very much. However, ever so often the Voice Command screen pops up with the kind lady telling me to "Say a Command". I do not call up this screen since I do not use it at all. I dismiss it with the command "Exit". It comes up maybe once a month although last week it appeared twice in one day. It is really not a problem, just a curiosity.

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

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.

Mass Turnpike Goes Ezpass Only as of 10/28

Travelers of the Massachusetts Turnpike should be aware the toll road has gone Ezpass only as of 10/28/16


drove through EZPass with two tags

Was curious what would subsequently happen.

Conspiracy theory says, user error, pay twice. Not the system's fault.

What ended up happening was the regular charges appeared immediately.

6 days later, the 2nd tag appeared on the statement (online).

This week we’re recognizing, Sirkull!

Sirkull has been with us for over 8 years.
Last week he added 60 new locations to his Dollar Tree file. This is pretty busy file, with locations continuing to pop up all over the US.
We appreciate Sirkull’s dedication to keeping this file up-to-date.

Thanks, Sirkull!
