GPS On A Cruise Ship

My family and I will be going on a Caribbean cruise in a couple of months. I am thinking of bringing a GPS along just to see where we are and how fast we are traveling. Will it work aboard the ship or will other electronics cause interference to it?

POI Factory Feedback

Hello,

I do not post much, if hardly at all, but I wanted to take a moment to thank the people behind the scenes here for keeping the POI Factory website running, as well as, all the folks that contribute in the discussion forums. You all have been a great resource over the years for keeping my Garmin Nuvi's up to date and running well!!!

Thank you,

Tgrds

General Maintainer

I've always known that you could lose your windmill and I have lost mine several times, but didn't know you could lose your general maintainer status as well. When did that start? I've been relatively inactive for awhile.

How to change GPS Brand and Model at POI Factory

I had an old Magellen when I signed up at POI Factory many years ago. I now have a new Garmin Nuvi, and I can't find any place in my account settings to change the brand and model. Help appreciated.

POI Loader

Recently had my desktop crash & had to replace it.
What is the poi loader I want to use for updating my Garmin Nuvi's & where would I get it.

If I remember correctly, it wasn't the very latest version that was the one I want to use, unless that's changed.

Thanks.
Fred

School Bus Drivers...

WOW,

We had a issue last night with our daughters Bus company here in NYC. She rides a small bus for disabled children.

Anyways, I am wondering if anyone else had a issue like the following and what was done about it.

My daughter dismissal time is 2:30PM and normally gets home around 3:45 to 4:00PM. Last night she did not get home until 8:00PM!!

Automakers Track Drivers

If you have an in-car navigation system, your car manufacturer is tracking you--and there's nothing you can do about it. See:

Low Clearance POI

Is there a "Low Clearance" available for RVers to load on to my Garmin? If so, how do I find it? Did a search but nothing popped up.

Happy New Year to All

Wishing Everyone a Prosperous and Happy New Year!!

Friday morning service outage - 1/3/2014

POI Factory was unavailable for a little while this morning due to network troubles at our web hosting facility.

The problem lasted about an hour and was resolved just before 1:00 pm Eastern (10:00 am Pacific).

The failure was traced to an electrical problem in the data center, which disabled a network switch and interrupted our connection to the Internet.

Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? – January 2014

In danger of losing your windmill?

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

Anything to keep your windmill alive.

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.
