After looking at a lot of these POIs, I begin to wonder. When are they necessary? I think all the Wal-Marts and McDonalds are already in my Garmin Nuvi 765T, aren't they?
Just when i thought it was over, here we go again. More
snow again forcasted for the north east. There calling
for 6 to 12 inches here in New York city.

Technology that depends on satellite-navigation signals is increasingly threatened by attack from widely available equipment, experts say.
This week we are recognizing Hernt and Vegagary.
Hernt has once again been reporting every news item coming out of the IL area pertaining to the instillation of Red Light cameras. He gives me a few weeks notice and then reminds me once the are installed. I love your attention to detail, thank you so much for helping me out with these locations.
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.

If you own a Toyota and are not sure if your vehicle is involved in the recall effort go to this site: http://www.toyotaownersonline.com/sscinfo?siteid=too_toyota_... type in your VIN and get an answer quickly!
I'm new to POI Factory and something struck me about this site right away that, for right now, I see as a serious design flaw. All of the POI data on this site seems to be contained in files and separated out manually. Why is this site not centric around the POI data itself?
Would it just display a blue screen, does a message pop up, does it simply revert to displaying coordinates? I have never traveled beyond my GPS maps coverage, so I am just curious.
My wife, two sons, and I may be taking a Caribbean cruise next year. I was thinking that it might be handy to bring along either a GPS or a GPS phone for that trip. Needless to say, my StreetPilot 2730 is a little bit big and cumbersome for something like that.
This week we are recognizing Camping Rivopom and Nats50.
Camping Rivopom: http://www.poi-factory.com/user/25340 has been building individual state campground files. These are a great addition to our Camping category. Thank you so much for helping us by creating these files.
My family and I love to go camping and I am sure that there are campgrounds out there that are not on a state park.
This thing is pretty cool.
Researchers say the Sun is awakening after a period of low activity, which does not bode well for a world ever more dependent on satellite navigation.
And you thought it was just another Valentines Day on Sunday.
There are several groups doing protest demonstrations against the Red Light cash cows. Oh, I'm sorry, they are calling them 'safety rallies'.
Article about Chicago's protest rally:
There is a RLC Protest page on Facebook, too:
I am in the market for a GPS for my motorcycle. Don't really understand the high cost of them compared to auto units. I guess my only real concern is, when they say bluetooth does it send the voice directions out over the bluetooth? That is about all I need really, to be able to hear the directions in my headset.
Do we use the Skydiving Drop Zones POI to hit them or avoid them?
Please include data into the poi database such as a business's hours of operation.
Example, you are in unfamiliar territory and it is late. You select "all food". The GPS would know that it is late and would filter out businesses that have closed.
I just got a email today (2-11-10) from Navteq:

Maybe Garmin will not go out of business
How do I add a custom icon to the list of icons already on the 255W data base from garmin? I have lighthouse icon from POI Factory's list of icons that I would like to use on a site I down loaded from google Maps into my "Favorites". How do I do that or is it impossable?
