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.
MaryAnn Melby AKA Miss POI
I've never driven or even been in RVs. I was watching an RV show on Travel Channel, and thought it might be fun to rent an RV for a week long driving vacation.
The RV show said there are class A - big / expensive, Class C - smaller truck-based RVs, and class B - smallest van based RVs.
im a trucker and have alot of pois files 300+ my question is when they are loaded they all go into one big file .....question can i make dirs IE state hwys,trk stops...etc then load them to my unit while keeping the dir structure?????so instead of having 300 sepret entres i could have lets say 20...... tks also ive been reading about all the members here....
Does anyone have a suggestion or comment about voices for the Garmin? What about the KITT voice or PIG Tones voices? Are they decent and do they speak street names?
I'm relatively new to the site, and I just wanted to thank the truckers who've posted POIs. In addition to transporting the goods we all use everyday, you're also giving us some great tools to use with our GPS.
Why is this message showing when I try to post a reply?
Have my posts been offensive? Or poorly written? What is the criteria to be a "good" post?
POI Factory is moving to a new server this evening.
Starting around 11:30pm Eastern, the site will be unavailable for a couple of hours during the transfer process; and it may take a while longer for your Internet service provider to receive our new IP address.
As of 01/14/2011 Garmin updated their poi loader from version 2.5.4 to version 2.6.0.I downloaded this poi loader today.I then loaded my favorites from POI Factory to my Garmin 1450 GPS,while these files were loading it said 4 0f the files I was downloading were corrupt and ask me if I still wanted to keep loading the files I clicked on the link to tell it yes.After the files were loaded,I deleted

This looks like a great site for updating POIs in a GPS unit. However, the Magellan 1470 that we have doesn't allow importation of POI files.
I'm especially interested in the Walmart/Sam's Club and WiFi sites besides the low clearance one, but everything seems to either be in .csv or .ov2 format.
By my calculations POI-Factory is less than 650 members away from a quarter of one million. WOW!
I'm new to POI Factory...I'm looking for Street Atlas users. In SA 2009, we were able to get into the script and change the 1000 record limit. Has anyone heard if this has been done in SA 2010 Plus? I'm very sad that my computer crashed and I no longer have access to SA 2009.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!
This week we are recognizing Gary A.
Gary A has been around the Factory for almost 3 years now. He is a dedicated member of this community and someone we all enjoy having around the forums.
He brings great humor to our lives and is always ready to lend a hand when I need one.
Thanks for all you do Gary A.
How many of you all use Panoramio to upload photos or download photos as a destination source?
As post in the subject line, I have been thinking about navigation challenges and the two that come immediately to my mind are:
-Keeping Data Current
For example, last week I was in a very large multiple story building and I was thinking that the navigation function on my Android phone might be helpful for getting around inside.
In this mornings Saint Petersburg Times headline reads City moves ahead with camera plan.It is full speed ahead to install cameras at 20 crash prone intersections.May take up to 6 months to get the cameras working could be 30 to 60 days if they piggy back the cameras.$8,000,000 could raised they say only 1 councilman out of 9 disagreed with going ahead with the cameras.
Noticed some of the POI pages have icons and sound downloads. How are these associated with the locations in the GPS? meaning if I download the sounds and icons for walmarts, how will my gps know to use those for walmarts only?
I think you will enjoy this!!
