Traffic Cameras In DC

Starting Feb 1 traffic cameras will begin reporting drivers who block intersections, roll thru stop signs, fail to yield to pedestrians, pass thru an intersection at an unsafe speed, or take an oversize truck or bus on a street too small to accommodate it. Rolling thru the stop sign $50, all the rest $250.

This reported today in the Washington Post.

Reinstalling maps

In a previous post i had lost all my maps in my computer and my Basecamp and mapsource had no 2014 maps. I contacted Garmin and they sent this reply.Thank you for contacting Garmin International.

Please use the following instructions to install the City Navigator maps to your computer.

1. Run Garmin Express

Garmin base map

I recently had my windows 7 64 bit re installed and lost everything (lost all files unexpectedly)How can i get the updated maps i have purchased from Garmin back into my computer,the maps were one time downloads. I have a 2009 CD map update but it wont update base camp with the details. I have emailed Garmin but no luck for answers.


NO more warming

NO more warnings in Clermont Florida, RLC violations is a ticket, so.........


Just a general FYI...The Quiznos in Springfield, IL on Stevenson Drive is now closed.

What Makes an Existing Topic Show Up as Having "New" Posts?

I am wondering why, when I log in and go to "Recent Posts", sometimes I'll click on topic with "New" next to it in red, but when I get to the topic there is no new post or recent update at all.

For example, it has happened several times with http://www.poi-factory.com/node/3724.

GPS On A Cruise Ship

My family and I will be going on a Caribbean cruise in a couple of months. I am thinking of bringing a GPS along just to see where we are and how fast we are traveling. Will it work aboard the ship or will other electronics cause interference to it?

POI Factory Feedback


I do not post much, if hardly at all, but I wanted to take a moment to thank the people behind the scenes here for keeping the POI Factory website running, as well as, all the folks that contribute in the discussion forums. You all have been a great resource over the years for keeping my Garmin Nuvi's up to date and running well!!!

Thank you,


General Maintainer

I've always known that you could lose your windmill and I have lost mine several times, but didn't know you could lose your general maintainer status as well. When did that start? I've been relatively inactive for awhile.

How to change GPS Brand and Model at POI Factory

I had an old Magellen when I signed up at POI Factory many years ago. I now have a new Garmin Nuvi, and I can't find any place in my account settings to change the brand and model. Help appreciated.

POI Loader

Recently had my desktop crash & had to replace it.
What is the poi loader I want to use for updating my Garmin Nuvi's & where would I get it.

If I remember correctly, it wasn't the very latest version that was the one I want to use, unless that's changed.
