This week we are recognizing Box Car. He's been a very active member since joining the site back in 2010. This month, he's been doing a great job in the forums, and he's also been maintaining a nice collection of files, many of which were previously orphaned.

Thank you Box Car !!

Noob POI question ... (McDonalds, etc.)

I understand what POI files have to offer for categories not already preloaded into my 265W, but what is the benefit of loading a POI for McDonald's when that chain is already loaded under the "food" section?

POI Factory's Speed/Red Light Cameras

Am i the only one that thinks this way? If im going to pay for the Speed/Red Light Cameras Poi's and I did... i think it should come without every poi stating poi-factory after all we are paying for it. What do you think?

What would you like to see integrated into a GPS in 2012?

Well, 2012 is almost here.

I'm sure that most of you would like to see some improvements or features to be in your next GPS.

Fortunately, the price of GPSs has dropped quite a bit from the early days and they continue to drop (so far).

2011 Contributors of the year?

As the year is coming to an end I was wondering JM if you'll be letting the community pick a candidate as we did last year. It's a great idea, was successful last year and certainly hope we can all go to the polls once again and voice our opinion mrgreen

Extra POI editor

1. How do I upload POI's to the program? 2. How do I download them to my tomtom. I know how to download files from here (this site)to my tomtom, but not from POI extra editor.

Yes, a GPS device is still a good gift idea!

Finally a tech site stands up in defense of the PND.
