new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk


Residence/White Pages

Excuse a newbie question. I have the Garmin c550 unit. Are there any POI's to help me search for directions to a person's residence by just typing in there name? Thanks in advance!

County GPS Data

Has anybody ever seen any GPS units that display what county information? There are times when it would be handy for me to have that information.

Does any one know how many members are apart of this site?

I was curious how many people are apart of the POIfactory family. I'm sure Miss POI knows.

keeping up with POI updates

OK, I'm a newbie and need some help.

I can see how the "My Discussions" will work to keep me up on any forums that I reply in . . . is there a tool/list of POI's that I am interested in that when there's an update I can review and get the latest data?

Chit Chat Thread for the week of June 30th 2008

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.

magellann 3225

Does anybody have magellan mistro 3225? and how do you like it?


California opened the first commercial Hydrogen station today...only problem is the cost is a wash as compared to gasoline right now, its double the price but gives you twice the mileage. Honda will lease you a new Hydrogen car in 2009 for $600 a month so it looks like we will be stuck paying for gas for awhile...

GPS or Paper Maps

Growing up in a mid-west farming community through the 70's and leaving for the military in the mid-80's; one of my hobbies was collecting maps. It didn't matter what it was for, a state, a country, city, state park, or counties and even lakes.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .

What's a good laptop site?

I'm in the market for a new laptop PC computer for the first time in 7 years, during which time I have not been paying attention to new developments. I'm not sure about how to judge new components, processors, memory, etc. Can anyone give me the address of a site or forum that can get me up to speed?

2009 Garmni Map Update

I recently got an Email from Garmin advertising their new 2009 map update. When I tried to purchase it on-line I was refused because they only sell it the US, UK and Ireland. I contacted Garmin via email, but didn't get a response as yet. Anybody know why they can't sell their 2009 map update to Canadians?


Looking for a windshield mount

No, I'm not talking about the one for a GPS. But I figured y'all have dealt with various mounting devices, and are the right people to ask.

Anyone know of a good way to mount a toll transponder (EZ-tag, Expresstoll, etc) on the windshield with a suction cup without having to use the semi-permanent adhesive tape?

Anyone seen some kind of mounting bracket for this?

POI Plagiarism

What's your opinion on someone who downloads a POI file from a website like this one and then uploads it to another POI website and claims credit for creating the file?
