new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk

 

Anybody asked Google Earth to correct an error?

A cousin is moving to a new address. Tried to find it on Google Earth. It shows the road but with incorrect spelling so nobody could search and find the location.

Garmin would not be able to find it either, except by lat/long.

Voice Selection

Have any of you experienced the voice you've used for a very long time (years) being changed after a weekly update of POI's??? No other updates were made.

I just had that happen with a voice change from Jill to a non-TTS voice. I just reset it but it's never happened before to me.

Garmin express error

Just got a Garmin nüvi® 2557LMT
Went to Garmin site Registered it.
Then started the Garmin express v2.2.21 several different ways and times. Gets about ½ way through and gets the following error message----- Service ‘Garmin Core Update Service’(Garmin Core Update Service) could not be stopped. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to stop system services.

Suggestions Please!

What features are needed by POI factory users?

I am a one man company building a new GPS app for iOS and want to include the ability to import and export both .csv and .gpx files and hopefully with the permission of the administrator, provide a direct link to POI Factory letting the user store their login information on the phone.

Microsoft buying Nokia Devices/Services

Developing Story...

http://www.engadget.com/2013/09/02/microsoft-will-acquire-no...

Looks like Microsoft getting licensing to use Nokia patents and "mapping know-how"... Nokia owns and operates separately Navteq... one of the major suppliers of map data to Garmin and a host of other GPSr hardware and app suppliers...

The POI essentials

What POI files do you think are essential for almost any traveler?

The only ones I have right now in addition to safety cameras is the rest areas and travel plazas. I feel that anything else (restaurants, gas, etc) are generally pretty well covered in the garmin map.

Anything else you guys think almost EVERYONE should have?

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!

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.
