POI projects

 

Subway File-Volunteers

This file was transferred to me a few days ago. Looking at it's history, it has not been updated in almost 7 years.
The present file has 22,215 locations and looking at the website locator, it indicates that there are 24,834 locations in the US.

Since the locator only lists 50 locations at a time, this is going to be a very time consuming process.

Orphaned POI Files

Orphaned POI Files

When a maintainer leaves our community or makes the decision to downsize their projects and gives us notice, we move the POI files to Orphaned Files

Any members interested in file maintaining are welcome to ‘adopt” any of these files.

Pictures for POI Packages & POI Files

I have started this topic because I would like to reach out to all the photographers out there looking for something to take pictures of.

What we need is pictures like on this page: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/10174 that Doc_Brown took for the site of Dairy Queen. Here is another that Doc sent in for Starbucks http://www.poi-factory.com/node/6021

Garmin BC 40

I contacted Garmin about a BC 40 connection problem. I got a reply from Eric describing the fix.

The fix worked. Then I contacted Eric about the problem that the BC 40 does not warn you when the batteries needed to be replaced. Here is his response.

Pet Friendly Restaurants

If anyone is looking for a new topic.... I would love love love to see a Pet-Friendly Restaurants listing. There are several websites out there but I can't find any POI's files.

Is Anybody Here Looking For Ideas On A POI Project?

As posted above, I am just wondering if anybody here is looking for ideas for a POI project? If so, I would love to see someone update/create any of the following:

-AM/FM Radio Stations

-NOAA Weather Radio Transmitter Sites

-Ham Radio Repeaters

-Cell Phone Tower Sites

The first three have been done, but might be due for an update.

Pizza Hut File

I am presently updating this file. In addition to editing the existing file, (additions,deletions,address and phone nubmer corrections) I am including the Pizza Hut Express locations.

Walgreens Absorbed Rite Aid

I looked but did not find a Support Thread for Walgreens...

Don't know how far ranging this is Nationwide, but here in Waynesville, NC Walgreens has absorbed the Rite Aid store.

The Rite Aid Store at Russ Avenue and Howell Mill Road in Waynesville, NC 5.5014 -82.9882

Is now a Walgreens....

Possible to Get Custom 'Where To' Icon in Zumo 660/65

I've been using the EPEv6.04 with my Zumo 660 and it works well in putting some custom POIs in my Zumo. Problem is, I would like to have a .gpi file show up in my main Where To with an icon. I read that if you have two .bmps files with the same name as the final .gpi file (but with 1.bmp and 2.bmp) it should be picked up, but I cannot get it to work.

Family Express

Is anyone doing Family Express

POI files - many seem neglected

Hello,
Just throwing this out there......

What's the incentive for anyone to update / maintain POI files? Unless you really love doing that sort of thing or need a particular POI.

Distância de disparo do alarme de radar

Olá. Uso POIS personalizados configurados com o BaseCamp para identificar radares. OK.
Alguns POIS configuro distância de disparo do alarme sonoro em 500m. Quando configuro um POI para disparar o alarme sonoro em 100m ou 50m ele continua disparando em 500m. Alguém sabe porque?

New Starbucks in Waynesville, NC

I've forgotten how to capture coordinates in Google Earth.... Sorry.

There is a new Starbucks that is about to open up Building and Parking Lot done (except for the furniture inside)..
It is located at the northern corner of Russ Avenue (US276) and Howell Mill Road (State 1148) in Waynesville, NC ....

Cell Phone Tower POIs

Has anybody ever had a list of cell phone tower POIs? Most of the time, most end users really don't care because it doesn't matter to them. They either have coverage or they don't. And, if they don't, they might move a short distance and the signal improves.

Frisbee Disc Golf POI

There should be a list of Disc Golf courses. This site has tons of them.

Dunkin Donuts/ coffee

As of January you will never see signs for Dunkin Donuts.
They are changing their name to "Dunkin"
They are dropping the "Donuts" part of the name. All signs, containers, napkins. Still the same coffee (thank God) for that, and the same donuts.

Overnight parking / camping not allowed in this city

I know there is at least one RV campground POI file here at the factory. Is is possible to incorporate cities or locations that do not allow overnight camping at all? Not even at a Wal-Mart. That info might be useful to RVers. Sort of a redlight camera version of no parky here.

Experience with POI in hurricanes

If anyone has good examples of using POI in Hurricane Florence (or others), I'm writing and article and would appreciate your recollections. Thanks, Jim. jim@saberspace.org

Panera Bread POI File

The coordinates for the Panera locations near me are off. Does this data come from Panera?

I have read all the threads on this site concerning low clearance.
I even contacted some members via their email.
