POI projects


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

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.

Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things!

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?

US and Canada Low Clearance

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

Wikispaces Closing Down

With Wikispaces closing down, does anyone know where TurboCCC is hosting the Extra POI Editor page?

Gas Stations with no ethanol, 100%s gas

Small engines, like chain saws, weed eaters, and my Chrysler minivan all run better on 100 percent gas, with no ethanol. Anybody working on a POI file like that? Weigels is a local brand in the Knoxville TN area, and Most have one octane that is Ethanol free, for example.


dickey's bbq

does anybody have a current poi file or a location list so I can create one? the current one is 10 years old.

Bank Of America ATM blown up by thief

It seems that BoA is minus 1 ATM!

A thief blew up an ATM using oxygen and something else at:

893 Veterans Memorial Hwy SE
Mableton GA 30126

There are 3 ATMs there (2 drive-up and 1 walk-up), so you can probably still get some cash.

See story and pictures at:

Mis-use of data

I have tried to find some guidance on the site about the appropriate use of data, namely dealing with someone who has taken my data from my website and posted it here. I can tell it's my data for the coordinates match exactly out to 6 decimal places and I always pick my own unique coordinates. Is there any recourse?
Thanks, Ted

Garmin 760 camper custom POI hell

Afternoon all. I've read the letters off this forum. I can actually load custom POIs. Just as I think I've cracked it.....
What's happening exactly is :

Gander Mountain is all gone

Camping World closed the last of the Gander Mtn. stores and I've asked GlobeTurtle to delete (or not) the Gander Mtn. POI file.

Does anyone have a list of the Applebee's locations that are closing?

Shell Station File. Seeking volunteers

I am presently updating the entire file using the Shell website locator. The major problem with this updating is that the website locator listing ONLY incudes the street address. In order to obtain the City, State,Phone numbers and whether it has diesel, is to use ths coord/street address along with the use of Google Earth to obtain this information.

How to add multiple POi's with warning message

I have tried finding a way to do this, but I just cant get it to do what I want, so maybe I can find an answer here.

I have a Garmin 61-LMTS.

I know how to add poi's to the unit. I want to be able to add poi's like "Starbucks" for example.

And then:

I want ALL Starbucks to show an icon on the map for this road so I can see what's coming up further down the road.
