Not knowing what to expect from my gps unit, I happenchanced across this forum. This is my 1st post of many to come. Thanks for having me.
I was wondering about the possibility of creating a POI File of Forest Fire Lookout Towers. I am kind of testing the water here to see if anyone thinks there would be any interest in something like this. I know that my wife, two sons, and I like to climb the fire towers in the Minnesota State Parks when we go camping each year.
I just started doing POI's and used Yahoo on GPSV and it sent me a 1/2 mile away from the actual destination. I reloaded it using Google and had my GPS show me the map and it was dead on.
Here's the weird thing.
I am planning a trip from MA to see my daughter in NC. When I put in the destination the Nuvi plots a route right through NYC; through Brooklyn, over the G.Washington Bridge, etc. I hate driving through cities and want to plot a route to avoid the city all together. Is there a way to configure a route and load it into my GPS or am I stuck with what it dictates? Thanks.
Just wanted to say hello to the group. My wife and I moved to the DFW area in January from Rhode Island due to a job transfer. We actually drove out here twice...once in my vehicle and then once again in hers once the house in RI sold. We used a Garmin c330 to get here the first time, and we liked it so much, we picked up a second c330 for her car for the second trip out.
I wish when I was in the Marine Corps, GPS was as good as it is today.. My Capt. wouldnt have got lost!!
just wondering how your members for... work seems to be off.. just wondering.. Most likly I am missing something!

I've done two trips cross country with my nuvi360 one to Florida, and one to Georgia both originating in Texas. The nuvi managed the route great but the arrival time is messed up because of the time changes going and coming back. I'm surprised its not smart enough to figure this out??

I've been using the final version of poi loader and haven't tried installing the new Beta version yet.
I've very picky about my PC and would like to ask a quick question.
Do you have to uninstall the old version 1st before you load the Beta version or can you load right ontop of it. Some programs let you install over the top of them and I'm not sure it poi loader is like this.
Here is an idea I've been kicking around for years... update your GPS with new road info!
Yup we have another recognition program to announce

I am looking for GPS coordinates for the Upper Mississippi Pool 2 from River Mile 815 to 848. Does anybody know where I can go to get a list of coordinates that corresponds to the River Mile Markers?
I was advised of this site at this URL:
