Cannonball Record Broken

In a CNN article today, technology is cited as helping break the record for the Cannonball coast-to-coast run:

These guys seem to have better luck with traffic reporting than I do. However, it says the first turn direction from the GPS was in error. Wonder what brand of GPS they used?

In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.)
.
Anything to keep your windmill alive.

Monthly Bargains/Recommendations (November 2013)

Rather than having multiple threads, like these:

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/39232
http://www.monstercable.com/screenclean/monster_screenclean....

We thought we would merge the monthly GPS Deals/ Bargains and add recommendations.

Please feel free to share any legitimate recommendations for products that might be helpful to our user community.
Remember, sharing is caring!

This week we are recognizing tdlee!

Tdlee has been a member for four and a half years.
I’m quite grateful he adopted the orphaned Olive Garden files, as I am a big fan of the Portobello mushroom ravioli. 
He has also just picked up the Moe’s Southwest Grill file.

Thanks, tdlee, we appreciate your willingness to help us continue to keep our POI files current.

New to the Forum

Hey all,

I just discovered the POI Factory and there appears to be a wealth of info here. I thank you past and present contributors for that!

I've had a Garmin Nuvi 1490LMT and have now recently purchased a Nuvi 2595LMT.

I'm just learning the basics of POIs...and writing them, so in the near future, I hope to be a contributor.

Glad to be aboard,

Russ

Montgomery County, MD School Bus Cameras

There is an article in the Washington Post this morning citing the intent to install 25 bus stop cameras by Jan 3rd. This would be to enforce people not stopping as buses pickup or discharge children on the way to school.

This kind of camera I can support - NOT red light & speed cameras which are operated with shortened yellows to make substantial revenue.

Miss POI Checking in.....

It is that time of year again when we start that holiday season and think about our friends and family.

Once again I am brought back here to our POI Factory family. This will always be a home to me that I will always come back to for visits from time to time.

Things are going really well, I just celebrated 2 years with NMCI and have now been rolled over as a Hewlett Packard employee.

Looking to replace my 5+ year old Nuvi 360

Hi

My Nuvi 360 still works, but find it a bit slow, running out of memory for the latest map updates.

Seems like there are lots of options out there and prices have certainly come down since I paid $500 for my current unit.

I was thinking of getting one with lifetime maps and traffic like the Garmin 2595LMT.

Is the traffic feature worth it? What are the pros and cons?

Raiders of the Lost K-Mart

The Consumerist often has entries labeled "Raiders of the Lost Walmart", where intrepid readers send in pictures of obsolete items that still languish on Walmart shelves years after they were discontinued, and oftentimes priced close to their original retail.
