I noticed a couple of weeks ago that I had not seen his name pop up for awhile. Today, upon doing some further research, I found that spokybob passed away early last month.
Spokybob was a regular in the forums. He was one of the first members to reach out to me in friendship when I started here at POI Factory. He even sent me pics from a couple of his "Bucket List" adventures.
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 notice that in google maps I can search POIs and all the POI icons show up in the map. I can then chose based on mapped location.
In my Garmin I can see POIs sorted by closest to me, which is good, but only in a list. I can only chose a POI then I can see that one icon on the map.
With the demise of MS Windows XP on April 8, 2014, there is an alternative to moving on to the next version of MS Windows. That is using Linux.
I recently bought a new gps and wanted to add some poi csv files. I got those poi files from here but found that many of them had missing information (no city, state or zip code) so I decided to try to update them with the data from some gps-zip code files.
I used to live in Arlington County; the Rosslyn area to be precise. In a word parking is lousy to the max. City fathers and mothers are more interested in development then in the quality of life along the major corridors.
I tried to add the large JCV file to my 2797 but could not find a JCV folder in the internal card. So I created a JCV folder inside the Garmin folder and put the JCV file there but it didn't work. Any suggestions?
When I was using my windows xp computer, I had installed wave files ( my gpsr doesn't have an mp3 player) to match some of my poi's and it worked fine. I had installed the sox file in my Garmin folder with poi loader.
This is the official POI Factory Joke thread.

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 week we are recognizing, phranc!
Phranc has been a member of POI Factory for over 6 and a half years. He has experience with multiple GPS makes and models and we appreciate him sharing his experience with us and being helpful to new people.
I joined last week because POI Factory kept showing up in search results. There's a lot of info here, and I appreciate the efforts of all involved.
Following the usual registration process, I waited for the initial email, followed the one-time login link, used 1Password to change my password, and thought everything was OK.
Almost time for the rumours to start?
What, if anything was this voice from? It sucks.
Not only will this insurance Co. be able "to locate policyholders by GPS and charge them insurance rates per mile driven... and can even record the route driven by the policyholder."
I can think of a host of associations to this development but I would hate to spoil the fun & indignation for others.
I'd like to start from scratch here and just focus on what I want to do and maybe you experienced peoples can help me get myself set up in a good way.
I want to be able to do the normal highway and city routing.
I want to know where the public lands are including forest service, BLM and state lands (so that I can camp there for free).
This week we are recognizing Juggernaut for his help in the Windows 7 discussion thread. I love seeing people from the community jump in to help one another and it’s great when multiple members indicate they've benefited from a suggestion.
I am getting sick of seeing New York in the weekly RLC camera updates. This state is over the top. The SAFE Act was a deal breaker. The constant additions of RLC and now speed cameras has me seriously thinking about voting with my feet out of this tax-laden nanny state.
