New kid on the block......

Hi guys!

I stumbled onto this forum and thought I'd say hello. Some of you have already helped me with a issue over on the Garmin forum and I thank you.

Don"t Mind Being Old

Another one sent to my by someone else. don't know the author.


As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less
critical of myself. I've become my own friend.

I have seen too many dear friends leave this world, too
soon; before they understood the great freedom that comes
with aging.

Whose business is it, if I choose to read, or play, on the

Memories of the Past

Someone forwarded this to me.

New to this Maintainer thing

I tried to edit my Ohio Squished Penny Machine file. The search only let me see the first 50 records. The pennycollector website says there are 72 locations. My POI file says I only have 65. I am trying to see which ones I am missing.

How do I get a location from only coordinates in EPE?

I was trying to put Long/Lat in Extra-POI-Editor. I know how to get the Long/Lat using the address part. But is there a way to do it if I only know the coordinates?

Most recent POI files (sort by date added/updated)?

Is there a way, for example, to see all POI files added or updated within the last few weeks? I can see the most recent 5, but I would like to see them for the past specific period.

Need help with a collection of POI's *Travel Guide to the USA*

As of recently, I have been creating my own POI's for a "Travel Guide to the USA" collection. My basic standpoint would be a collection of POI's and then subcategorize them by individual databases. EX: Fastfood, historical spots, museums, toll roads, rest stops, major gas stations, shopping centers, and so forth.

Gas Prices

As I filled my gas tank today at $3.23.9 cents a gallon I wondered what happened to the $5 "DOOM & GLOOM" prophesy to come?.
As you GPS people transverse the USA today I want to inform you of how much in federal and state taxes you pay in each state for each gallon not effected by the Wall Street Speculators. This is cents per gallon.

Alabama 39.3
Alaska 26.4
Arizona 37.4

Tennessee Penny Machines

I just uploaded the Penny Machine loctions for Tennessee. I think I am missing an address for the Elvis Presley Automobile Museum. All others were entered with geocoding.

Looking for MIss POI (TN Squished Penny POI)

There was no contact tab for me to click on. Was wondering if the Tennessee Squished Penny POI made it in?

This Is What Happens When Your Car GPS Blows Up:

Geocache mistaken for a pipe bomb

Some humour for geocachers in the forums. A friend of mine asked "So did SWAT get to claim the FTF?"

Suspected pipe bomb actually a ‘geocache’
For more than three hours, Toronto emergency units investigated a suspected pipe bomb taped to a lamppost in an exclusive west-end neighbourhood...
