new & interesting places for your GPS

Welcome / open talk


Going to Lancaster Pa.

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.)

Bobkz - Garmin Nuvi 2455LMT/C530/C580- "Pain Is Fear Leaving The Body"

Charged for Police car gas

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.

Let's talk about our vehicles...

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

A pedestrian is someone who thought there were a couple of gallons left in the tank.

How did you find the POI factory?

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.

Paul..... Nuvi 765T

MSN Direct Question

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).

Any body working on a Spa and Massage POI listing..

I was just thinking about vacation and couldn't help my self with this file.....

careful when buying GPS online

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

marnoldi Nuvi 680 & Nuvi 760


Is any body here riding a scooter to save gas? I am especially interested in those new under $1000 dollar ons.

BAD POI files: NRHP-N.East, Midwest, West and South.

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.

How long do POI's generally take to load on GPS unit.

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?

New here just wanted to say hello

Good Afternoon

I just wanted to say hello and also that this is a great place to learn so much about custom POI's.

Just wanted to say hello to everyone.

POI Files to Kenwood HMK files for TM-V71A and 710A

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.

Chit Chat Thread for the week of June 16th 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.

Map directions different on 680 and 760.

I just got my new Nuvi 760 and decided to put it through its paces, so I put it side by side with my 680 and made a 20 mile trip and set the route in motion. Both had the same map (2009), same setting for Fastest travel and both set for 'More' map display. The only difference I could tell was the 680 had MSN traffic and the 760 had TMC.
