Magellan 10000 POI/file limitation

Heya! I was downloading some of the AWESOME outdoor large POI groups (IE Trails, Lakes, Islands, etc) and it would be great if there was some way to load them onto my Magellan 2200T. However, there is a 10K limit to the POI per file (at least for my model - it says so in the POI File Editor). Is there any way to get around that limitation?

Friendly reminder not to repost Files form other sites (including ours)

I just want to send out a friendly reminder to not post files that you find on other points of interest sites. Here is our FAQ regarding this topic http://www.poi-factory.com/node/820

It takes time and energy to build these POI Files and I do not want POI Factory to get a reputation of not respecting the work of others in the GPS community.

Is Magellan better than Garmin?

I've had both and love Garmin-ease of use! What about you?


Anyone else see the irony in the Adult Club POI>>>>

New User - dropping a hello on you all

Wow. Glad I registered at my.garmin.com once I upgraded to this new Garmin unit. Found this awesome site and registered straight away!

I don't know what if any contributions I may be able to make to anything. I'll browse through the projects Forum area and see if there is anything I might be able to do. I have to learn how to make files, etc.

Charlotte, NC

GPX-POI file generator online

I found this on the web , thought I'd share .

putting states on poi files info

When I down load a file from the site (ie. school zone,Cracker Barrel ect.) the file shows the city.
Is it possible to put the state in front of the city when they are made that way when they are down loaded so we can select the one we need and not all the others
to save space on gps.
Or is it there and I am doing something wrong?

Contact author of a POI File

How do I contact the author of a POI file, I have made some changes to his file and would like to submit them to him.



Minneapolis trip

Later this month I'll be going to Minneapolis/St. Paul. This 1,068(as says in the gps) will have me waste a lot of money on trip. Before I go, I wonder if there was any good poi's I could put on my favorites. I already downloaded all the poi files in the Minneapolis City Project. Just wondering if there is anything else that might be interesting for me to see.

Nuvi 350

North America NT 2009

Has anyone purchased the NT 2009 update yet? If so can you tell that much difference between it and the NT 2008? What's the difference in the maps?

Nuvi Vs Streetpilot

I am planing to upgrade my Streetpi;ot c340. I like the features of the c550, specifically (TTS-Street Names, Bluetooth and MP3). I am considering a Nuvi. Can someone tell me which Nuvi model compares to the SP c550 most closely. I do like routing and fm transmitter in addition to other features mentioned, but I am looking for the closest match. The nuvi's overall size appeals to me.


Found an error in POI file, now what??

Hey, found multiple errors in the Baltimore area security camera file... how do I update on this site (or notify admins)?

Chit Chat Thread for the week of June 2nd 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.

Contributors of the week 2008-05-26

This week has been such a wonderful productive week at the factory that I find myself overwhelmed with the decision of the COW awards.

I look out at a sea of contributors and have found at least 5 worthy people.

This is not a bad problem to have it is just a tough one because I would not want someone feeling unappreciated after all their great contributions.

GPS Theft Article



Edit by Miss POI - I removed the written article, please remember that it is ok to post a link to the story but not the story itself please.

Jihad THIS!! Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Best mount by far

I have been such a moron for not listing to others advice about the beanbag mount. For more than a year now I have spent hours devising different ways to mount my Nüvi. My last try was to fabricate a tall tubular thing that I glued the black disk to for using the sucson cup mount.

"Combined" POI List

Hi. I'm new here so pardon the stupid question. What is the definition of a "combined" list? How does it differ from a simple list? Thanks.

Hello (*Waving*)

I thought I would say Hi, to everyone. This is a nice website you have here. I never knew it existed until I started researching GPS's.

I live in a suburb (15 min from the strip)of Las Vegas, so if I can help you with any POI's in my location, I'd love to put my new nuvi 760 to work. I really don't understand the "jist" of it but I'm sure if I continue reading I can figure it out.
