I'm very new to downloading POIs but I've grabbed several to try out. I noticed that for Barnes & Noble and for Applebees that after loading, the nearest locations are around 500 miles from my West Michigan home. The files didn't indicate which areas were covered to the best of my recollection.
Am I missing something or are these just incomplete for the U.S.?
This applies to my Garmin Nuvi 680, but I put it here, because it is actually a more general issue that applies to removable drives or devices in general.
I was having trouble using my Nuvi at work. It seems Windows was assigning it to an already used (by our network) drive letter. So no access to the Nuvi for anything.
I needed to share (and gloat a bit ) this with travel minded peolpe:
Montreal has won through popular vote the honor of the top spot on the new MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition.
Who says they are not to generate revenue. Here in Atlanta they can't decide what to do with the money now that there is a profit.
Is there a way to see your custom POI's when searching in the factory POI section, or are the two groups mutually exclusive?
As I understand it, if I want to search them, I need to go to "extras" then "custom poi's" then search there.
Thanks to all for any thoughts.
Can someone go email me the gmapprom file from the extraction of the IQUE 3600 base map.

Be well crazy dude,
I wanted to create one location for all of our Florida members to check in and let us know how they fared after TS Fay. We've kept our fingers crossed and hoped for the best for you guys, so let us hear from you. Hopefully, you are all doing well. But we really want to know you're OK.

Anyone has any idea what's wrong.
I loaded on my laptop with no problem.
Want to purchase program if I can get it to work on my PC.
Can anyone suggest how they organize their POI's.
ie: by state, type etc.
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.
This week we are recognizing Pcatch135 and Skunkape.
Take the road less traveled
If you have the option of choosing lightly traveled roads over busier ones, you give yourself more flexibility to employ a wider range of fuel saving techniques than if you are surrounded by other vehicles. You may even find that a somewhat longer, lightly traveled route may result in lower overall amount of fuel used than the shorter, busier route.
I'm new here and I must say this is an excellent site. What a great resource.
My questions is there seems to be several companies that neglected the northwest (I live in North Idaho). I grabbed several company POI files, but the following ones don't show any locations near me:
Will the business world provides GPS owners a free POI file of their business locations.
Would it not benefit their business.

I downloaded the rest stops and set up alerts about a mile in advance. Works like a charm! Everyone here is so very helpful (not surprised at that) and I want to thank everyone who makes this all possible. A friend of mine is moving out of state and bought a nuvi 5000. What REALLY surprised me is that it has no battery; has to be plugged in to use it.
