Had switched to the MSN direct cable a few months ago for use on the nuvi 760. I have never seen an "avoid" or an audio alert ever on the "main navigation screen" or the " msn traffic screen". If I switch myself to the traffic screen it shows the traffic situations ( no avoids ) and I believe has always shown my chosen route to be in the "green"!
I recently loaded Southwest Campgrounds onto my Zumo- only one POI came up. I'm new at this technology, but have not had trouble loading other POI's from "the factory".
Newk, if you see this can you help me get your info loaded correctly? I'm headed on a 2 week motorcycle camping trip in 2 weeks (5th of July) and would like to use your POI listing.
Thanks in advance.
I'm a newbie, but have loaded several POI files already via Garmin POI loader, but for some reason, the Harley-Davidson file won't load on my street pilot. It is on my laptop, but when I run POI loader, it is not "seen"! Any help is appreciated. Dmill1
I have just finished reorganizing our Rest area files and I am hoping that they are easier to find now. Here is a link to the POI Package http://www.poi-factory.com/node/14656
I will also be doing the same thing with some of our other files like the State Parks, National Parks, Cemeteries & Ham Radio Repeaters.
So my Navigon 2100 is PIN protected and it included a sticker that says "PIN protected GPS inside." Would anyone actually put this on their car? Do people remove the GPS from the dash when they get out of the car for theft reasons?
I am taking a trip to Lancaster Pa next week and creating a POI file that has all the local area and sites to go to.. Like places to see and do, places to eat, maybe ewven the hotels in the area. (guess something like a tour guide.)
What does everyone think about being charged $12.00 or more for gas, when you get a speeding ticket? It probably will become the standard.
I feel the ticket is the money maker why are they demanding more, in the guise of high fuel cost.
I thought this may be a fun thing to do. I thought the 'whats the name of your nav' topic was quite fun in its way, but what about the nickname of the vehicle it sits on?
let me start..
I have a silver 2003 toyota corolla LE
We are seeing a lot of new members on these forums. I think it is great. They all have one thing in common. They all found, stumbled upon, found a link, etc. to the POI factory. I think that I saw a link on a review of GPSs, on line. I have told my friends by word of mouth.
I put it off for a long time, but with the rising gas prices I thought maybe MSN Direct would be good investment. However, it looks as if I may have thrown my money away. While I don't get reception at my home, I do get good strong reception in the areas I drive most (Ventura & Oxnard CA).
I was just thinking about vacation and couldn't help my self with this file.....
i was searching to buy a Nuvi 680 and did online searches for the best prices (such as below)
i found 2 companies where the price was $259 and was shown as available in stock
Is any body here riding a scooter to save gas? I am especially interested in those new under $1000 dollar ons.
I don't know who tried to download these files...but POI loader will let me download my 121k plus files except for these...I've also ignored all of the files and tried to just download these and the loader will not let me. My guess is there is a bad file in these GPX. files.
I just loaded a few poi from the site yesterday and I've tried to use POI loader to enter them in my GPS unit and its been atleast 5 minutes and the POI's have still not loaded...any ideas?
I just wanted to say hello and also that this is a great place to learn so much about custom POI's.
I hope I learn enough to help others out.
I just found this site and already Have Learned alot. Keep up the good work
New owner to the world of handheld GPSr. My Nuvi 760 is waiting at home for me. I'll get my hands on her in another week. Been using Street Atlas for a couple of years now( wife and I do the RV thing), just wanted something a little more convienient to carry around and transfer between vehicles.
Just wanted to say hello to everyone.
For the hams out there who have a Kenwood TM-V71A or 710A, and you've made up or bought the programming cable, its pretty easy to take the POI files in the Ham area and rearrange them to import into the radio using the MCP-2a program.
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.
