I’m using a Garmin 255w GPS and having trouble in changing a phrase . Here’s what I have done. See if you can follow.
I took a drive to the end of the Earth (Madawaska, Maine) or at least the Northernmost town East of the Mississippi...darned if I didn't fall right off the end of the Earth...well, okay, I would have in 1492 when conventional wisdom was that the Earth was flat
My nieces were visiting for the weekend and they wanted to see a certain movie but I wasn't sure if it was appropriate for them. So while googling the movie I found this nifty site http://www.commonsensemedia.org/
They review movies, music, games, etc. and tell you whether they are suitable for kids of different ages.
You should definitely check it out if you have kids.
I don't believe in ghosts, but the kids in the back seat like to look for them as we cruse by.
I have posted a free Internet tool to find the GPS locations of reported fatal accidents near any location that you enter.
Check http://www.cactusmitch.info to see a few of the GPS enter-able summary reports of fatalities in the Federal reporting system. U.S. location only!
Hello! I just signed up a bit ago, saved a Florida Campground POI, and now am having difficulty trying to figure out how to get it to my Garmin nuvi 255W. Do I have to save it in a particular location?
Any help would be terrific, and thanks.
I contributed a POI list of Springhill Suites by Marriott and I haven't seen it posted yet and I was wondering if something might be wrong with it or if I might have submitted it in the wrong format.
This week we are recognizing Dwaynes and Jpandcindy.
This dynamic duo took over the Chick-fil-A project and have showed great teamwork.
I love it when groups form to make an already great project greater.
Thanks so much for your help updating this project.
Has anybody here used the 'Lorex Road Warrior'?
In addition to having real-time video, it also has a built-in GPS to track vehicle movement/position.
Any user input would be appreciated.
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.

Could someone tell me where I can locate the POI file for the Corps of Engineers Camping Areas?
Thanks very much,
I just got my new Garmin nuvi 855 delivered from Amazon. Upon powering up immediately saw a dead pixel. While it did not bother me much I wanted to recalibrate the display.
Couldn't find it under Settings->Display or Settings->System. Can anyone help me find it.
Thanks in advance
Every so often I rent a car from Hertz and end up getting a Neverlost GPS in it. They are Magellan-based GPS systems from, what appears to be, 10 or so years ago. They pale in comparison to anything on the market today.
Do I have to download the icon and alert files separately or are they included in the POI packages? I am new to this and when I try to enable the alerts on my GPS, it doesn't allow it. I am wondering if I am missing something. Anyone have ideas/help?
Probably somewhat unique to Texas but kind of interesting non the less.
OK, so you say "Big deal, it's not me" LoL I will be there for almost a week, Sept 8 to the 14th. So I am looking for some help to find some good Poi's there. The car I rented will have unlimited miles, so I can drive where the interest Poi's are. SO can someone point the way? What should we see, besides the Grand Canyon? We will be staying in Phoenix. I appreciate the help.
Sixteen satellite views are posted with multiple choice answers. It is a fun test. I missed two. I'm sure several people will get them all right.
This week we are recognizing Mahoney for his continued excellence in everything he does here on the site.
I am not sure where we would be without you my friend. You are a super star.
A lot of the questions on POI-Factory revolve around 'when will the Numaps 2010.xx be released', or 'is firmware to fix my 7X5' released yet', etc, etc... I thought it might be a big help to have a centralized page here, looking something like this:
Garmin Numaps Current Version = 2011.20
Release Date = 10-Aug-2010
Garmin Nuvi 7X5 Current Version = 4.0
