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

Golf Courses for the Entire US Polygons not Points

Does anyone know where I can find a shapefile for the boundaries of all golf courses in the USA? This would need to be a polygon feature and not a point feature.

I currently have two datasets that are points (lat/lon) centered on the golf courses, but I really need polygons.

I could digitize these using satellite imagery, but that is going to take a hundred years...

Garmin Dezl LGV1010 (custom poi symbols)

Hello All,

Recently just purchased a Garmin Dezl Lgv 1010 satnav. I wondered if anybody knows if its possible to change the poi symbols with you own custom ones instead of the pre loaded default ones available in the satnav?

U S Holiday Inn POI

Is anyone working the Holiday Inn POI file? I notice there hasn't been any additions in 5 to 10 years. I don't think that's possible.

POI Edit

Since Extra POI Editor does not work anymore, I have gone back to POI Editor.

I tried to convert the Harbor_Freight.cvs file to GPX file but it leaves out ‘Harbor Freight’ and put all the rest in the ‘Name’ windows.

Is-there a solution for that?

Thanks

Creation of a Low Bridge clearence POI ?

Looking for a US overview of bridges with challenges when driving a RV, I searched this forum and could understand that there previously was a file that was taken down.
Searching a little more, I found the NBI data set that comes from the National Bridge Inspection that has a dataset that is updated every year.

I downloaded the CSV file and created a small Jupyter notebook:

speed and red light cameras with voice announcements

IS THERE AN EASY WAY TO ADD VOICE ANNOUNCEMENTS TO SPEED AND RED LIGHT CAMERA LOCATIONS FOR FOLKS THAT ARE NOT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO DO IT THEMSELVES,IS IT POSSIBLE THAT POI FACTORY MAY HAVE A PROGRAM THAT WILL UPDATE THE GARMIN WHILE UPDATING THE GARMIN TO THE NEW LOCATIONS EVEN IF IT WOULD COST ADDITIONAL MONEY.

State of Missouri County Seats

Somewhere in my travels, I found a POI file listing all Pennsylvania County seats. I would like to see one for Missouri. I have too much on my plate right now to undertake such a project, but if someone wants to give it a try, it would only be 114 entries. The coordinates could be the State Capitol building. If anyone is interested contact me for more info.

Any ham radio folks out there?

Hello all,
Just wondering if anyone out there is into ham radio? I was thinking about helping update, or just do it myself, the repeater files into type as well as band, for digital modes and analog. Will someone beside me use them?

McDonalds USA/Canada Historic data from 2014

Hello, just wanted to say a big thank you to Mahoney for maintaining all the files on the site.

I have a question specifically about the McDonalds USA/Canada data.

Just wondering do you keep previous versions of the file?

Albertsons Stores USA File

This file has been assigned to me for maintaining. The reason for this topic is that I have noticed that a number of downloads have been made over the past few days of this file. This topic is being brought up due to the fact that this file had not been updated in over 10 years. As I began the update, I found that a major update was required.

Converting CSV file to POI file

I have an AROVA GPS. It uses the .POI file extension. I want to convert CSV file to POI file and install in unit. I have no idea how. The file convertor programs I've looked at do not do that conversion. Any help.

Changing an address

Good morning

I've recently come across a few Harley-Davidson dealerships that have either closed or moved. Is anyone making mods to the HD POI files that Dave817 (RIP) created?

Thanks

Beaches poi file

FYI: Latest Beaches USA poi file was corrupt and could not be updated.

Schnucks Stores and CVS Pharmacy Files

While updating the Schnucks Store file, I noticed that in most of the Schnucks Stores, a CVS pharmacy was located.
Out of 109 Schnucks, a CVS was located inside 100 of the stores. As a result changes will be made to both files.

For the Schnucks file,
Column C will show as "Schnucks [CVS Inside]-Alton,IL"
In column D, both phone numbers are included
