Extra POI Editor

In looking at a POI file with EPE, my map portion of EPE is now much smaller and won't open up to a larger window upon double-click. I can't see any change in my settings in the preferences menu. Can anyone help me?

When I try and load the WiFi-Lite file with POI Loader I get "There was an unexpected error during the transfer of the custom POI file.

Any ideas out there?

Anyone else have this problem?

Right now when I go into a discussion forum it shows the oldest post and the newest post is pages away.

Is there a way to show the newest post first?

This week we are recognizing GPSgeek.

GPSgeek has been a member of POI Factory for over 6 years. He has experience in maintaining files and can be found helping out in the forums like with the Zip Code discussion. He’s also good about posing questions to kick off discussions.

Thanks for your continued contributions, GPSgeek!



I noticed a couple of weeks ago that I had not seen his name pop up for awhile. Today, upon doing some further research, I found that spokybob passed away early last month.

Spokybob was a regular in the forums. He was one of the first members to reach out to me in friendship when I started here at POI Factory. He even sent me pics from a couple of his "Bucket List" adventures.

Multiple POI Display in Map Mode?

I notice that in google maps I can search POIs and all the POI icons show up in the map. I can then chose based on mapped location.

In my Garmin I can see POIs sorted by closest to me, which is good, but only in a list. I can only chose a POI then I can see that one icon on the map.

The Linux Alternative

With the demise of MS Windows XP on April 8, 2014, there is an alternative to moving on to the next version of MS Windows. That is using Linux.

Zip Code gps file information

I recently bought a new gps and wanted to add some poi csv files. I got those poi files from here but found that many of them had missing information (no city, state or zip code) so I decided to try to update them with the data from some gps-zip code files.


Parking enforcement in Arlington County. Money! Money! Money!

I used to live in Arlington County; the Rosslyn area to be precise. In a word parking is lousy to the max. City fathers and mothers are more interested in development then in the quality of life along the major corridors.

Can you add the large JCV file to the Nuvi 2797?

I tried to add the large JCV file to my 2797 but could not find a JCV folder in the internal card. So I created a JCV folder inside the Garmin folder and put the JCV file there but it didn't work. Any suggestions?
