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.
Download of .CSV works ok. Garmin POI Loader makes it a .GPI but MapSource can only read .GPX
What do I do?
Good day to all members,
Could you kindly tell me do I obvioulsly need to install Google Earth to find coordinates for building my POIs files?
Most of the time, I use Google Maps with the right-click on the place what I want their coordinates.
Google Earth is more, same or less accurate than Google Maps?
What kind of infos you can get more with Google Earth in lieu of Google Maps?
Nearly died of pneumonia a while back (2 years) still not back to "normal". Doc says I will not be while cigaretts are around. Laws are in place to prohibit smoking, not enforced, too busy handing out tickets for speeding, both can cause death, of course, but let all smokers to fight pneumonia and see how many continue afterwards. Cigs in England are approw &30 still not enough.

Nats50 has been a member of POI Factory for over five and a half years.
This last week he’s created 8 new POI files. While the camera files are what keep this site financial afloat, our general POI files are what keep our diverse user community interested.

Can a proximity alert be increased?
When we are traveling 65-70 miles an hour the proximity alerts do not activate far enough in advance.
Most of the times I have found that they active when the exit has passed or I am right at the exit which makes a safe exit impossible.
As a result most proxity alerts are use less.
Can the distance from an exit or the establiment be increased?
• Reuters and Bloomberg report that Harbinger Capital Partners sued Deere & Co., Garmin International Inc., and Trimble Navigation Ltd. The Bloomberg article notes that the companies are accused of failing to disclose that Harbinger's LightSquared venture would interfere with their products, according to a complaint filed today in federal court in Manhattan.
Magellan RoadMate 2136T-LM, 4.3" Portable GPS w/ Touch Screen, Lifetime Maps & Traffic Updates(Refurbished) for for $49.99 at:
1saleaday.com! Only 11 hours left on this deal.
This week we would like to recognize the people who sent in new camera info in the last week.
Doesn’t need Lifetime Traffic. When he heads down a road traffic parts before him, just to see him pass.
Doesn’t dl POIs. Wherever he goes that becomes the most interesting place to be.
When he calls Garmin, Garmin picks up the phone. After all he just might launch his own GPS Satellite system.
Rather than having multiple threads, like these:
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!
This is the official POI Factory Joke thread.
It will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.
Please read the forum rules before posting.
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 thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.
Looks like threats to GPS navigation are more susceptible to spoofing than from jamming the signals. Drones and vessels at sea are certainly targets, as the article describes, but of more immediate potential impact IMO might be Google's driverless mapping vehicles roaming our streets and highways.
This week we are recognizing, Juggernaut!
Juggernaut has been a member of POI Factory for over five years.
He’s a frequent contributor to a variety of forum discussions and, as I’ve mentioned before, I just love his bouncing elephant avatar.
Hope the elephant doesn’t get jealous of your COW.
