I just found out about this site as well.
And yes, I just came from under a rock
I have the GPS nuvi 650 for 3-4 yrs now and I just start to adding POI.
I've just received a response from NAVTEQ regarding a map error report I submitted. Unfortunately the report was from February 2008, but it is nice to know I could help. Recently I sent a map error report to Garmin and received a response in two days.
I just purchased a Magellan RoadMate 1700 7inch screen.It did not come with a software disk and this site says to uae RoadMate Tools to download poi data to the gps. Does anyone know where I can get it?
Any chance of a United Kingdom specific area for POI's that relate to that part of the world please?
I notice that unless the country that the POI relates to isn't specifically included in the file description then its hard to search for (obviously).
Any help or suggestions most welcome from this COW
I would like to suggest updates to a list (http://www.poi-factory.com/node/16277), however the contributor does not have Contact tab. Is there a trick?
While I have read the FAQ " How Do I Update A File That Is Already On The Site?", when I contact the kind person who has already established a POI file, what information is required?
Is the address enough or are the GPS coordinates also required ?
I'm sorry if this has already been covered. When I use the "additions and corrections" search term, I get 80 pages of hits...
I just found out about this site. Thanks for creating such cool sharing site.
The latest in the saga of Toyota, the California incident, the runaway Prius....a hoax?
Toyota spokesman John Hanson would not comment on what the company would say at the news conference, but said Toyota and investigators for NHTSA were able to pull data off the Prius' control computer.
This week we are recognizing Catholic_Chris: http://www.poi-factory.com/user/176263 for his outstanding contribution of RC Diocese of the UK. Great Job!!!
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.

This is my 3rd forum that I have posted to get membership, is there anything else extra that you get when you become a member?
An example of adapted uses of new technologies - how else could GPS be used? Compare to other kinds of social networking games, eg flash mobs.
Just drove all night to San Diego, relax here today, and then get on the San Diego cruise to Mexico tomorrow!!
Love the GPS, Nuvi 205, took me to the hotel without any problems.
I was just reading this article in Forbes and it was a real eye opener about how some areas are really suffering far worse then the rest of the Country.
Ohio has 5 of the top 20 most Miserable Cities in the list with Cleveland picked as the most miserable.

I always click Preview on my posts first before I click Submit. Just in the last day or two, when I click Preview, it just blanks the editor and starts over. Is anyone else seeing this? It only does with when I'm using Firefox. No problem with IE 8.
i am having a hard time instaling mi icons what file on the garmin do i need to find to install the icons i rename all my icons fles to bmp but still no working thank
I'll start off by saying that I love to drive. Many of our vacations over the recent years have been long distance driving trips between 4000 and 8000 miles, normally lasting just over a week. Our trips have "must see" POIs, optional ones depending on time and of course ones we find when we talk to locals.
I'd post this in the garmin but will ask here. I have a slightly older model, Garmin Nuvi 250W, the wide model. The USB mini jack is busted. Anyone know if they still sell the part? It used to be on ebay all the time but don't see any there. Me and a friend are going to attempt the replacement. Thanks.
I was away from POI Factory and Internet about 1 month due to a few difficulties. Well, I am back. Can't even remember where I put my GPS
It's a great place to be back.
