This week we are recognizing, mahoney!
Mahoney has been with POI Factory for a VERY long time. He maintains A LOT of files and he helps us out by updating some of the orphaned files when he can.
This week, in the discussion Shell Gives Us POI Files, we were reminded of how fortunate we are to have mahoney maintain files for us.
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.
I don't recall a discussion on this, I did do a search without finding any data in search engine, therefore.....
There are several mapping program on line…
I like this one for several reasons:
Trips are saved in My Trips
Tabs are called “drawers” open the tab to reveal options
This week we are recognizing, Ajasaro!
Ajasaro has been a member of POI Factory for nearly 8 years and maintains 61 POI files.
July is a busy vacation travel month so we appreciate him updating the National Parks, Monuments, Preserves & Historical Parks file to help assist families on the go.
This could have some chilling effects on all of us.. Ecpecially if we go to the milage based taxes off of GPS devices in our cars..
I have enjoyed Streets and Maps with the POI available, I had not updated my maps for a good time. I bought a new computer and went online to get the latest version I was blindsided by the fact that they had discontinued Streets and Maps.
Another pitfall for GPS users without Ezpass:
Unless you use the toll road exclusion option on your GPS, or have Ezpass, you could be in for a hefty fine if your unit routes you via one of these Ezpass only exits.
It would be handy for the GPSr to give an alert for such an occurrence.
This week we’re doing a group recognition.
This week’s Contributors of the Week are; canuk, Garmin2597guy and alandb.
We’re recognizing canuk for posting the, Garmin Map Update Frequency As of July 2015 thread, based on Garmin2597Guy’s comments on his exchange with Garmin and alandb for summarizing the info for us.
While cleaning out an old box in the garage over the weekend, I came across my old Radio Shack Digi Traveler GPS "puck" that originally had three cables, one that plugged into a Palm Pilot, one that plugged into a computer serial port, and the third for a pocket PC, but I really don't remember now.
Anybody had any experiane with this store? If not GOOGLE it and read the comments, I only wish I had before I purchased an item. The item did not work right out of the box. After much searching called the 800 number and told that that they not sevice this model, "this model is obsolete and we do not sell to ebay" (the unit was shipped from China) first clue.
It has been several months since I have been on the site. Showed up today to get the latest red light and speed cams. In this update process I decided to visit Garmin and download Bert and Ernie voice pack. Voices installed but didn't find the vehicle pack. Any Ideas??
Anybody find a problem with the Discount Tire Csv file this week? In redoing the files for my GPS this week, an error occurred in processing the updated files & identified Discount Tire as the problem file.
This week we’re recognizing Box Car!
Our POI Factory 2014 Contributor of the Year is recently retired and last week, spent some of his new found leisure time, updating his fuel station POI’s to assist those who were headed out over the busy travel holiday.
Hi I'm planning on buying new gps unit .I currently have factory garmin indash on 2011 jeep. I mainly want to add speed & red light camera poi also school zones. I'm mainly drive in New York & Pennsylvania. I'm looking at GARMIN 67 lm or Tom Tom go 60. Which has more poi or is easier to install or more programs and better maps? Any advice appreciated. Thanks
Hope everyone is safe and doesn't ingest or imbibe too much this wonderful weekend. Too much is a general term. It differs per person!
I'll be filling my backyard and home full of friends and relatives, and we'll be ingesting and imbibing to surfeit! My bonus is I get to roll into bed. No road time for me. The bad part of the deal is I'll be cleaning up the remnants for a week!
Techies, take note!
A new world record for solar powered flight is about to be set. 5+ days from Nagoya, Japan to Barbers Point, Hawaii. Only one person on board - the pilot. All on solar cells and batteries.
Should be landing at Kalaeloa airport at about 12 noon EDT. Best to tune in early.
