I recently plotted a course in MS streets and trips,downloaded it to my 250W and when I started my trip it changed the route to the shortest but very slow way.It used to be the quickest but all the speed limits have been lowered.I wanted to take the scenic way.
Today's Washington Post contains the article "Obama to Federal Employees: Don't Text and Drive" which references the new executive order banning texting while driving on the job as a Federal employee, with texting defined as:
Is higher accuracy coming our way?
The GPS galaxy is capable of providing much higher accuracy than we presently receive. Commercial units must use a de-rated system rather than the precision set of signals broadcast by the same satellites. WAAS helps some units, but it is designed for use by aircraft rather than automobile type units.
The site also just celebrated its 3rd Birthday last week!!!
Happy Birthday POI Factory!!!!!
Congratulations to all who participate in, create and maintain files for, and manage POI-Factory.

Yesterday I uploaded some new content, a POI file of the data in my website (ridetoeat.com) in CSV and GPX formats.
It doesn't appear in the list... so I was wondering if it is normal for some delay. I assume content from people who haven't posted before may be moderated before going "live", and I'm fine with being patient... just wondering what to expect.

Noticed that for at least the last 2 weeks my profile reads:

Over the past 26 weeks, you have qualifying activity in 13 week(s).
My question is why doesn't the 13 weeks get bumped on a weekly basis?
how do you comment on a POI file ?
It seems that only way is to see who is supporting it, lookup their profile, and send them an email.
I wish there was an adjunct discussion for each POI files so you could see comments, updates, errors, etc.
So, I’m in the process of assembling a POI file and I’m trying to navigate what’s allowed and what’s not allowed in the compilation of what essentially is a database.
Hi, garmin freak.
I own alot of garmins, get them with corrupted software for cheap and reload the software.
I do have one question though, will these POI's work with handhelds? Ive swapped software( city nav for topo and also for water but never any POI's to the handheld. My car units are loaded with POI's and works fine.
