Just a note to introduce myself as a new user of POI Factory. I have been hooked on using a GPS since buying a second hand 2610 for use on my Yamaha.
I also use a C510 that i bought in Germany for work. Recently loaded CN NA on it and starting to like it a lot more than the 2610 even though it lacks some features.
I've read the faqs here and the POI loader help. Please tell me whether I understand this correctly. I now have custom POI files on my nuvi200. I want to add to them. I've read that the new ones will replace any that are already there. So I have to load the new and old ones together, correct? I can't just add the new ones and expect the old ones to stay put?
Turned on my GPS the other day for a trip to A.C. and it went to a warning screen about the maps being outdated due to being over one year old. Is there a way of making this message stop coming up each time I turn the unit on?
I have read many posts regarding the travel guides one can purchase for the Garmin units. Does anyone have experience with the European version?
Here are some useful Excel utilities:
MID: Returns a specific number of characters from a text string, starting at the position you specify.
Examples: MID("Fluid Flow", 1, 5) equals "Fluid"
This week we are recognizing Don B and JJPrats.
Don B, You had Miss POI working in overdrive this week You took on two huge projects this week and have not showed any signs of slowing down. It is so nice to have the Historical Military Sites files, the Historical Markers files and now you are working on Arches. Thank you so much for making these wonderful files for the site.
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.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
Can anyone tell me if the poi's on this web site be sorted by states?
does any one know of a way to create or download custom voices onto my garmin street pilot c330?
i am really looking for celebtrity voices or a woman with attitude so it feels like my wife is in the car... lol
After getting a GPS for Christmas and becoming a member of this forum for a short 3 plus weeks, I'm finding that just about every question that I likely want to ask has already been asked and is displayed in the forum. However, sometimes it takes a while to filter through all of the responses to eventually find the answer to the question(s).
Why are some of the Active Forum Topics that are shown when logged in, not shown when you are not logged in? Ref: Red-Light cams on way? Is there a catch up period for post? They never read the same.
i am new to the GPS world and when i bought my Nuvi 760 i also received with it the TMC cable. I have enjoyed the unit immensly, but was wondering if i was missing anything by not having a different traffic service cable- i searched the internet and couldn't find any info. i even called the two companies to hear what they offered ( the TMC cable came with a 3 month trial period)
Is there a way to delete some of the posts in the folder that has each of the forums that you have posted to? It is getting big and some I don't follow any more.
I just notice on Costco.com that they offered the Nuvi earlier than was expected. $249.99 + s&h.
I have been having a problem making a route in MS Streets 2007, converting it using GPS Visualizer, for a Garmin GPS. The first route I did worked fine. Now I can not remember the setting I used. I do not see a choice for MS 2007. But am pretty sure I use that the last time. Then converting to one of the Map source formats. Any suggestions?
One word POI ?
I was just reading a couple of other posts that mentioned it, and I was wondering how many actually use it. If so, why???? I mean, if someone steals your GPSr, then finds out later that it's useless to them, aren't they just going to toss it in the trash?
I recently bought a used magellan 700 from another trucker. This is my first experience with a gps unit and I am hooked. I drive a big truck across 48 states and wonder what is the best system to buy? Is there any unit that has truck routes?
Is there an easy program that I can view the contents of an srf file in? No, I don't want to stare at Navigirl! I have so many from various places in a folder on my PC now that it's hard to remember what some of them are. I don't really want to have to install them to find out.
Somewhere I saw a POI of U.S. Army COE Parks that accommodate RV's. Did anyone else see the same if so I would appreciate the help?
