If you have no brand loyalty to GPS products, live in a location with a Fry's Electronics store and are looking for a usable beanbag mount, Fry's is currently selling a Gilsson Universal Beanbag mount in-store for $12.99 before tax. The website does not appear to be selling them online however.
Just curious; if we participate in a thread that gets deleted...politics or censorship, for example...and it is our only participation for the week...do we still get to keep our windmill? :)
Inquiring minds, this one at least, want to know!
Amazon is no longer adjusting prices for recent purchases. They used to have a 30-day window where you could get some money back if the price dropped. No more.
This week we are recognizing Aophiuchus and Nicko99.
Aophiuchus, You have been doing a great job maintaining one of the most popular set of files on the site, Walmart. I just wanted to let you know again how much I appreciate all that you do for us at POI Factory. You are amazing.
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.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
I was just pondering something I'd like to see on a GPS unit - Some basic "Astronomical" data - times for sunrise, moonrise, etc. There's also something called Civil Twilight and Astronomical Twilight. Civil twilight is generally the time it gets dark enough to NEED headlights when on the road, and astronomical twilight when its dark enough to start seeing a few stars, at least with a telescope.
Here I've waited for midnite to roll around and Monday Sept 23d to begin, just so I could post.
You mean Miss Poi does not stay up just to begin the next weekly Chit Chat thread? I'm shocked and speechless. Disillusioned. Like there is no Santa.
So I guess I will just have to go to bed. I did not catch the gold ring on the merrygoround.
Just purchased a Garmin 260 (which I like very much) and decided to join after finding this site. It looks like there's a lot of great information here. Kudos to all of the contributors.
Not sure if POI Factory will mind that I have placed this in here but here goes.
I work at a company up here that also has a chemical manufacturing site in each of the cities of Victoria and Orange Texas.
Just wanted to say hello from a newbie. I've had my Garmin Nuvi350 for a few months and, of course, I don't know how I've ever lived without it!
I was looking for a case/cover for my Garmin 760 and i noticed an advertisement for a GPS sock.
I know that the Garmin Nuvifone is scheduled to be released next year with true GPS, not A-GPS. In the meantime, are there any other GPS cell phones right now that get GPS signals from the satellites rather than cell phone towers?
Looks like a great place. Looking forward to being a member.
Just updated my Nuvi-260 to firmware 5.0 and noticed another update that was available called "GPS Chipset Type B."
Can someone please tell me what this is and whether you recommend the update.
Any help would be appreciated.
Where does one post questions/problems with the way the discussion forums behaves? Software related.
Hello everybody, I just got a new Garmin Nuvi 200 from my sister. Decided to join this website, to learn and contribute
Have you guys and gals heard about gps spoofing? Tricking your gps into taking the wrong route? Have a look at these links:
I have some voice files from the nuvi 750 & 760, dated 2007 with various months, some early 2007. I however do not know how to upload( attach ) binary files on this site! Thanks
For those of you who had downloaded my Atomic Test Sites poi http://www.poi-factory.com/node/16988 in the CSV format, you may be interested to know I have replaced it with a new version in GPX.
The GPX contains more information about each experiment. Sites with multiple tests are now combined into a single entry with details of each shot.
