This week we are recognizing, Alleghany!

Alleghany has been a member of POI Factory for 7 years and 2 weeks
(and according to his comments on the 3 years and over thread, he hasn’t aged!). razz

He has, however been working diligently on his POI cemeteries files, particularly the one for PA.

Bing bazinga!

In the process of updating my Rosati's Pizza POI, I spotted a "location tweak" in the data on their web site. So, I took a look at it in Google Earth Street View. It didn't look much like a location for a restaurant, but Google's street view dated back to September '09.

The wealth of subject matter provided here is just fantastic and many contributors have devoted a lot of time and effort in posting content. For that I am grateful and wish to say thanks!!

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.

It is so cold that:

-Your Nuvi has formed a partnership with your w/your vehicle's temperature sensor. As you approach single digits the Nuvi starts flashing "I can find warmer POIs for you ... honest I can!"

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.
