This week we are recognizing, Ranman53!
Ranman53 is a relative newcomer to POI Factory, but he posted a comment last week in the Garmin North American 2016.10 Map Update thread that educated, amused and generally entertained many of us.
(The link above should take you directly to the comment).
This is the place to talk about things that are not GPS related.
This thread will be closed on Monday and a new one will be opened.
I have no vested interest in this site but I thought people here might find it interesting. It's actually kind of addicting once you start playing.
So, as posted above, I am wondering how Garmin, and others, currently get their POI data? Is it from HERE or someone else? The reason I ask is sort of a selfish motivation. One of my hobbies is riding ATVs. I generally ride on Minnesota or Wisconsin State DNR trails. When I want to buy gasoline near a trail, it is pretty important to have current, correct, accurate information.

For members who post frequently on POI Factory, I have added a new FAQ that may be helpful: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/44758. I know many of you already know how to this, but there are others who don't.
From these two studies, I wonder if any link could be drawn as to cause and effect.

They do stress that until the sign gets changed, the speed limit remains the same. The expect all the signs to be changed by Wednesday.

"The Prince George's County Police Department is beginning a pilot program to test laser-based speed camera guns with tablet computers that allow officers to catch and ticket speeders in real-time without pulling them over."

I love the ingenuity the girls used to get around the "you need a permit".
They are now doing a "donations only". Which is legal.
Does anyone have suggestions for a good batch geocoding program?
In the past I used GPS Visualizer, but sometimes it truncates the information that is input. I have found a program by TAMU, but they charge after 2500 data points. Thank you in advance for your information.
Got an email today about them doubling my download speed and all I had to do was reboot the modem, router and computer.
I live in east coast CAN. Lousy ,long winter, looking forward to vacation, just about done the east USA, where to???, popup trailer(tent trailer) behind, open to suggestions. TA,TA (English Thank you) for all replays.
This week we are recognizing, Walleye1!
Walleye1 has been a member of POI Factory for over eight years.
This week he updated his Lake Michigan Circle Tour file and sent in pictures for several other POI files including the Chicago Area Music Venues POI.
Thanks, Walleye1, for all of your contributions!
My GPS will not recognize and read the POI files. I have done this a 100 or more times. I use POI loader and an SD 2gb. It writes the file fine and shows correctly using explorer.
