Not surprising with the economy and gas prices earlier in 2008:


Top 10 GPS for February

From GPS Tracklog-based on hits to reviews NOT sales. Also includes top 10 handhelds.


four corners area

Has anybody else taken their GPS to the spot where you can stand in four states at once. According to my Garmin Vista the actual spot was over 1/4 of a mile away. Is my Vista that inaccurate, or is the actual location to inconvenient to place a monument

Aqautic stores, specialty pet shops, marine/ saltwater fish, hobbists

I am a Marine hobbyist and huge dog lover and I'm constantly on the look for new shops but I can't seem to find anywhere that collects multiple sites/ locations... I'm currently in the process of collecting info for POI on this topic that I know of in and around the Maryland, Washington DC, and Northern Virgina Tri-state area.

I just wanted to say "Hi" to all on this site, I have my First GPS this month,(Waited till I'm 72Yrs young) grin A Garmin C550 and have done lot of reading. I found this site on the Web, and to me it's one of the "best" sites I have ever visited, so easy to use, I look forward to meeting a lot of new friends. Thank you, sincerely grin


garmin free traffic

Has anyone used the free lifetime traffic from garmin with the ads. I am thinking of purchasing a new gps and wonder if this is a problem. I have an garmin streetpilot c580 and like it, but if I can purchase a new gps for about the same as the cost of lifetime traffic from garmin, it would seem better to purchass the new unit


Just cheeking in,still trying to learn how to downlaod files.

New In Quebec: Mobile speed cameras

New in the Province of Quebec: The government will be testing mobile speed cameras on a few sections of Highway. Some of these sections are 9 to 11 Km long, is there any way of setting a speed camera file for a section this long. Also some parts of the section have different speed limits.



Formatting Forum Text

This is a very useful link that documents many formatting options you can use when entering forum text...


A link does appear above the Preview/Submit buttons but I often overlook that. It would be most helpful to have this link in the FAQ or Newbie section.

Just wanted to say hi..

Just thought I would say hi, I hope to contribute to the POI files at some stage. I have only owned a GPS (Nuvi 760) for a short time but love it. I am an Aussie transplant to the USA, owned and ran iROK Radio (Oklahoma's oldest & largest Podcast) and I work as an IT Manager for a non-profit.

Point of Interest Manager

Back in December of 2008, I started a new manager to handle all those points of interest. The popularity of the project had grown within a very short amount of time. With all the feedback the application received, I was able to build a featured rich application. Some of these features included: Geocoding, Map Marker, and Importing.

New Pigtones Video

Whole Foods Mkt project discussion

I have emailed brott, but he must not be working on the file.
Anyone out there want a few updates for the file?


You can walk a horse to water, but a pencil has to be led.

Thanks to Ms. POI for concern

Dear Ms. POI: Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your thoughtful words when I posted about my mother falling. She passed on February 1, 2009, regaining conciousness long enough to tell me & my sister she loved us.

Again, thanks for your kind words.


Avoid Enforcement Camera locations.

What do you think about programing navigation units to avoid Enforcement Camera locations?

I believe that could only be done by the manufacturer, and would be an option like avoiding toll roads or freeways.

Multiple POI's

Hello All,

Newbie here trying to figure out the custom POI's. It doesn't seem like its possible to load more than 1 .csv file unless I'm doing something wrong. Everytime I try to upload it overwrites the previous .csv file????
