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.
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
The Motel 6 file is now complete US & Canada
If you find errors please let me know.
The Studio Six file is complete.
Added and deleted several motels, in the US and Canada.
This file is separate from the Motel Six file.
I believe if you are looking for Studio Six you don't want to be bothered with Motel six
that is why I separated them.
If you see something wrong please let me know, and I will fix it.
I decided that it was time to update this file. In the past updates,it was an extremely slow process that included going to a state listing and next to a city listing and hoping that all cities were listed.
I have 3 Garmins all have favorite files on them that I have accumulated , can I transfer files of all 3 to one card to use on my DEZL 580?
I expect this is a simple question but I'm new to creating a POI file from scratch. I've created a file using EPE v6.04 if that will matter. What I've found is that when I add a Comment in EPE as well as having address, city, state, and phone, I end up with a csv line as in this example:
Wasn't sure where to post this, so thought it best here where many might look.
dave817 (dave726 in other forums) is the gentleman who, for many years, kept the US & Canada H-D Dealers list updated on POI-Factory (he did both the HD dealers and the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives lists on the previous US based zumoforums.com then on the UK based www.zumouserforums.co.uk after zumofourms shut down)
I am currently working on the Marathon Gas file, it only has the Name and Coord's
Will take me a while to update, and will upload updates once a week after the file is moved to me.
If you have any Q's just e-mails me.
Ok...I'm curious how many rogue/brave photographers are on here. I'm working on a POI file that's a bit different. Some of locations that are included in the file will take you dangerously close to some highly restricted areas (even Area 51). I've also tracked down some highly secured CST-Scientology sites (storage bunkers, etc).
Hey everyone......in case you haven't seen or found it yet, I recently started a new POI project that will be a constant work in progress. I'll be adding and updating the file on a sporadic basis, as I find different locations. Some of them I have personally been to, and taken photos of...others are on my "to do" list. Currently there are a little over 40 locations in the file.
I installed Extra POI Editor V6.04 and set it up according to the instructions given in ‘POI Factory’s tutorial. Then I downloaded the ‘Campgrounds And RV Parks Combined’ file into EPE, everything looks fine in EPE.
Is there a limit to the amount of data in one POI entry. The above file errors off on line 10 when I try to load it in POI Loader.
OK...I installed/loaded several Custom POIs on my Overdryve 7 RV GPS from the POI Factory. I want to delete one of the custom POI files that I loaded. I can find no way to do that???? Do I have to reset the GPS to factory settings and then reload everything???? There has got to be a better way.
Any corrections or questions for the Dutch Bros file please post here or contact me via private messaging.
Maybe these can be added to the current file.
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.
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.
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.
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.
