Miss Poi

loading maps

do you have to be on the internet with garmin to load the canada map to a sd card after the initial downloading of the nt 2008 maps.


Some of you probably noticed that I have been doing some organizing around the site today.

We are getting set up to start packaging some of the POI files / icons and sounds so that they are easier to find.

Hello, new user here. Are there a lot of POI's for Nor Cal?

I am interested in purchaseing the POI info, but I am located in Sacramento and wondering if there are a lot of POI's in my area?

Red light camera C330 where?

I know this subject has been beaten to death.I downloaded the Red light Camera file.
Is this installed just like the POI files using the Loader?

Cover for Garmin c330

I have the Garmin c330 and was wondering where can you buy a hard face plate/cover for the unit. Recently I drove pass someone who had one. Now I want one. It's only time before I damage the unit.

Two Versions of POI Loader on System


Need some assistance.

Have 2 versions of POI loader on my computer:


Do I need both or can I delete one?



Alan-Garmin c340

how do i change the arrow icon on my gps

Where do i go to change the arrow icon that was factory installed, I would like it to be a car or motorcycle or firetruck


Latest redlight cameras file (09/05)


Is it just me or others have also encountered, that the download link for the 09/05 zip file has the 08/22 csv files in it?


if there were 1million poi 9/06; maybe 2 million 9/7?

wondering how many poi's are currently on this site.

new request: ability to sort poi files by most downloaded?

for a site upgrade, how about ability to sort files by: 1) most downloaded 2) state

what program takes to csv files and merges based on distance between poi's?

i remember downloading a program before that examined two csv files, and merged them if coordinates are less then a user-definied distance. what's this? got too much trash on my computer to find the program.

I need ifo from you...

Hi, I have a Garmen C530 and love it. However, I am thinking of upgrading to a newer GPS and was wondering what would be a good device to get..

Hi does anyone know how to export the long, and lat data from Google Earth Plus to the GPX editor?


POI-Factory Hall of Fame

With the first year anniversary of POI-Factory's current Terms of Use only one week away, perhaps its time to establish a POI-Factory Hall of Fame. Election to said body of elites would bring with it a permanent Windmill and all the benefits associated therewith.

I nominate Motorcycle Mama as the first inductee.

"It's not where you start, but where you end up." Where am I and what am I doing in this hand basket?

I-95 speed trap locations

I wanted to thank the person that posted this file. We just returned from a trip to Florida which involved traveling on I-95 throughout parts of SC, Ga and FL. We did see LE at several of the locations in the poi file.

I am back fora while..

I am back from vac and then was sent away again on a bussiness need. Will be going again soon.

I see that I lost my windmail.. Oh well.. thats the way it goes..

To all that have sent me great info for my poi files, I will be updatingthem and getting them on poi-factory as soon as I can.. Just been very busy with work..

how do you mount your Nuvi when you travel

When you travel, do you bring your suction cup and bracket with your Nuvi. I bought the Nuvi because it was so small an portable and I dont want to bring all the gear with it. However it slides all over the place if I put it in a new car.

Do you guys prop it up or wedge it somewhere in your rental cars?

School Zone Update

Using the info provided by forum members as a result of my earlier School Zone post question, I used the School POIs in the POI file list and set up my NUVI 360 to give me an audible signal when approaching a school zone. I then discovered that in the VA, DC & MD areas many local schools are not included, particulary the private and Church sponsered schools.
