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

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

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.

Nuvi 2595LMT --------- Nuvi 2460

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 ....

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!

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.
