What is a good distance for Proximity Alerts?

I've had my Garmin c530 for a few months, and have today found this site, and already loaded up and tested some POIs. I've used 1320 feet (which i believe is a quarter mile) because someone suggested it on here for school zones.

I think the Wingspan looks nice. Maybe use moonshot for the 4th of july time.

Residence/White Pages

Excuse a newbie question. I have the Garmin c550 unit. Are there any POI's to help me search for directions to a person's residence by just typing in there name? Thanks in advance!

County GPS Data

Has anybody ever seen any GPS units that display what county information? There are times when it would be handy for me to have that information.

Does any one know how many members are apart of this site?

I was curious how many people are apart of the POIfactory family. I'm sure Miss POI knows.

keeping up with POI updates

OK, I'm a newbie and need some help.

I can see how the "My Discussions" will work to keep me up on any forums that I reply in . . . is there a tool/list of POI's that I am interested in that when there's an update I can review and get the latest data?

Chit Chat Thread for the week of June 30th 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.

magellann 3225

Does anybody have magellan mistro 3225? and how do you like it?


California opened the first commercial Hydrogen station today...only problem is the cost is a wash as compared to gasoline right now, its double the price but gives you twice the mileage. Honda will lease you a new Hydrogen car in 2009 for $600 a month so it looks like we will be stuck paying for gas for awhile...

GPS or Paper Maps

Growing up in a mid-west farming community through the 70's and leaving for the military in the mid-80's; one of my hobbies was collecting maps. It didn't matter what it was for, a state, a country, city, state park, or counties and even lakes.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .
