Ok, so I haven't played around with my GPSr for awhile. Can anyone tell me the best way to suck in a POI file into something so that I can see where all the POIs are on a map.
I want to check a few of my "attractions" POI files to see if we will be going close to any of them while traveling up to Rochester, NY tomorrow.
I was successful downloading poi files and have them working on my garmin 465t.
I just can't download the mp3 files,every time i double click on the attachment,all it does is play the sound without downloading the file.
Also I've heard of a TourGuide file,where do i find it.
Thanks in advance for your help
PS this site is awesome
Buried in the Virginia Tech study stating a 23-fold increase in collision risk while texting is a negligible risk in talking on a cell phone while driving.
Here's a link to a column in Denver Post discussing the finding. http://www.denverpost.com/carroll/ci_12969052?source=rsshome...
I am trying to find a website that could possibly give me speed limits for streets within a city. I have gone to the city websites and none of them have any information on speed limits.
If you could direct me to some information, I'd appreciate it!
MrKen, would you check your email re: Rest Area file and get back to me please?
Heard this on the news this morning and had to post it. What won't the gps world think of next.
Looking for the ultimate POI. Of course, it must be in Lower Alabama which leaves most places out. Hardee's, McDonald's, Golden Corral, Cracker Barrel's and the like are out of the question. Red Lobster? Outback Steak House? Some Seafood restaurant in Panama City or Panama City Beach, FL.
I am trying my darnest to make it to 50, but it sure is difficult.
How good is the POI file for Low Clearance? I know that it should be only used as a guide and not all bridges are on there, but how many people actually think its an accurate file?
Ive been tinkering with the Extra POI Editor tool, its amazing.
i want to use it though, to submit my poi files in a different formats. I see some poi files are indeed in at least 2 formats. TomTom, Garmin CSV, Garmin's extended GPX...
Whats not clear to me is how exactly to submit the different formats so they're all there... It looks like submiting a csv will replace the gpx....
As my moniker indicates, I no little re GPS. I see Costco sells the Magellan 1340 for $100 (and saw the thread here about it, very helpful) and the Garmen nuvi 1265 for $219.
As best as I can see, the Garmen is larger, bluetooth compatible and has lifetime traffic - those seem to be the primary differences - are there others.
I don't know if any of the POI Factory members really care what chip is in their GPS device, but SiRF has just released a new chip with some interesting sounding features. Here is the URL:
Was trawling the net trying to find materials for my own POI files when I came across this entry on www.localsearch.com:

I am a GPS newbie.
I want one that would allow me to define a route on my PC, then upload it to the GPS.
I know that Microsoft's Streets & Trips can do that, but my notebook is a bit too large to have it sitting open on my car seat all the time.
Do any other GPS units have this feature?
I don't download many POI files, but after my last trip, I'm going to download the rest area poi file. My wife and I usually bypass rest areas and use the restrooms when we stop for food or gas, but this weekend we drove from Dallas to Nashville and took our dogs. They needed to use the rest areas more than we did so I was always looking for where they were.
This week we are recognizing A_User.
A_user, My question this week is: What did you not have your hands in this week? You are amazing, you rocked the house this week my friend. Thanks for all that you do for us.
You helped us update some of our more high profile projects this week, thank you so much for that.
We all think you are pretty awesome, even if you have a really strange avatar.
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.

If you see my ID (ghayman) listed several times in the 'OnLine Users' area -- I want to apologize.
on all GPS units @ Dell. This is not spam, I just saw this deal and thought I'd pass the information on. Deal ends 7/30/09
Just bought this model and want to know if others have it and what their experience has been. I understand that it has only been out for a few weeks. Thanks.
