Welcome / open talk


traveller tourist visitor information centers

Hello, are there POI's for Canada and the USA for the info centers along the highways and in cities? thank you

The Commodore 64 is back !

I'm sure many folks on here played with one of these in the 70's like I did. It's back !


Subject line

I am curious as to why you need to include a new subject title for each post here at the factory. If you are following along on a particular thread about the same subject why the need to add a new subject for each post?

. Nuvi 2689, two Nuvi 2460, Zumo 550, Zumo 450, Uniden R3 radar detector with GPS built in, includes RLC info. Uconnect 430N, Garmin, built into my Jeep. .

Texas House backs plan to allow 85 mph speed limit

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas House approved a bill that would allow the speed limit on some highways to be raised to 85 mph, which would be the highest in the nation.

AW_Root_Beer.csv problem?


Hey probably don't know what I'm doing, but here's what I found and I don't know what to do to fix it.

I downloaded this file and wondered why it didn't work.

Then I looked at the file and it looks a mess compared to other files I compared it to.

I hope someone has an older version of the file sitting around.

What a bunch of wimps my countrymen have become :(

If you are dumb enough to place the Progressive insurance company MyRate or Snapshot Discount http://tinyurl.com/4qqbzu9 (they can't make up their mind what to call it) driving monitoring system tracking device in your car to get a rate reduction, you will deserve every bad thing that happens to you as a result of its instillation. smile

IPad/IPod/IPhone Radio Apps.

For those of you who have either an IPod / IPad or IPhone these apps may have some interest to you. Once loaded you can decode Morse Code or We-Fax (weather fax) various digital modes of communication, just by holding your device close to the speaker of a shortwave, tuned to the proper frequency............it's really rather easy and pretty cool !

Restaurant POIs that are not open to the public

You arrive to an area that you've never been before so you punch in restaurants into your GPS and there are some coffee-shops or fast-food places that you want to visit. You select them and start following your GPS and arrive at... a local college that has a Starbucks in one of their food courts (and it's spring break and it's shuttered).


Does anyone have info on Wi-FI antennas?


Watch Eagles Hatch !

Watch a live webcam of Mom and Pop eagle tending to their eggs in their nest in Decorah, Iowa. First hatch is due today. Just very neat watching Mother Nature.


Enjoy !

Police Radar Traps

I am looking for an ap that I can mark on my GPS police radar trap locations as i am travelling . I see a lot of state specfic aps but I am looking for something more generic. does anybody know of one .. new to this site ..

Japan's Quakes

Check this map out, it's incredible to watch, make sure you stick with it and about 45 seconds or so into it, it gets wild ! You can see the dates and times on the right side of the panel.


New Garmin 2450LM

In case anyone is interested I just ordered a new Garmin 2450LM from Walmart for $198 and $3 to ship. Lowest price I could find from a reliable source. Sounds like it is now the top of the line even over the 37XX series based on several reviews I have read. It also comes as a 2460LT and 2460LMT but I was not interested in traffic or blue tooth..

This topic is directed towards Miss POI. I used to be a fairly active member of the forums contributing discussion as well as poi files to the site. Since then I got a smart phone and hardly ever use my computer anymore which is where I did all of my poi factory activities.

Things I didn't know

The AFLAC duck was voiced by Gilbert Gottfried. He was fired by AFLAC for making insensitive jokes about the Tsunami in Japan. They are looking for a new voice.

Also it is not his real voice. It's an act. His real voice is actually very low and mellow. Google his name and "Howard Stern" and view the YouTube clip of him speaking in his 'real' voice.

Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.
