Memorial Day weekend - please drive carefully

There will be a lot of vehicles on the highways this Memorial Day weekend (5/25-27), because many folks have Monday off as well as the weekend.

Those of you who have the traffic feature will be in a better position to avoid crowded traffic areas. Here's where these units pay for themselves. I couldn't afford one this time. Maybe next time.

Drive safely!

Need a bmp

I need a bmp icon for the Kum And Go gas station file. If someone could create a good one and upload it to the site, that would be great.
Oh. I have created a couple of lousy ones.

my wav file will not transfer

Hey its been awhile since on this site. I have a question, up till now I have had no prob with loading cvs, and wav files till I got my new computer with windows 7. My question is when I use the POI loader at the end there is a window in the middle that say was not able to transfer wav file cause of wrong format.

GPS/Navigation feature built into your car?

I just took delivery of a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with UConnect 8.4AN--a gps system that appears, so far, to be a very good unit. Are there any other POI Factory folks who have/anticipate having such a system built into your car?

Mobile Hotspots

Does anyone have a suggestion for a mobile hotspot provider that isn't on a full service monthly basis or isn't using the Sprint Network for their service? The best one I found was TruConnect but it uses the Sprint Network. I have been a Sprint user for years but not impressed with their coverage.

GPX files

How do I open GPX files, my computer doesn't recognize that file extension. I searched on line, but got junk sites.I'm trying to load them to my gps.

New Message Question

Is there any way on POI-F to jump to the newest post in a thread that is over one page long? I am able to just click on the word new in a post and it will work and jump to the newest posting as long as the post is no longer than one page. Now after the thread reaches one page it will jump to the page but you then have to scroll down to through the messages and just pick one to start reading.
