Monthly Bargains/Recommendations (September 2013)

Rather than having multiple threads, like these:
http://www.poi-factory.com/node/39232
http://www.monstercable.com/screenclean/monster_screenclean....
We thought we would merge the monthly GPS Deals/ Bargains and add recommendations.

Please feel free to share any legitimate recommendations for products that might be helpful to our user community.

Remember, sharing is caring!

Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? – September 2013

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.).

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This week we are recognizing, FZbar!

FZbar has been a member of POI Factory for over five and a half years. He’s a fixture in our forums, frequently welcoming new users and I doubt anyone visiting the site has ever left wondering what his opinion is on enforcement cameras. razz

What is Windmill?

Hi all
I have a question. Sense I registered here at POI factory for 2weeks. What is a windmill? After I posted comment I got this message.
Message "

...once you have your windmill, you have free access to The Factory's redlight and speed files.

You've been posting for about two weeks so you should have a windmill soon." Please let me know what this is.

Spell Checker?

Did this site get a Spell Checker, or is IE 10 now using a spell checker when you enter text into panels? If I make a misspell, I get a red squiggly underline. Right clicking on it lists selectable spelling options.

I have the full MS office package, so I guess it may be using that dictionary if IE 10 is responsible.

I just recently upgraded from XP to Win 7 and IE got updated also.

Here 5 years?! Where did the time go?

I just looked at my account page and see I've been a member of POI Factory for 5 years today. I found the site after buying my first automotive unit, a Garmin 260.

I've had a good time, "met" some fine people, created a bunch of POI files that I hope others have found useful, and was even honored once as a COW.
