Hi everyone. This is Keith with GraveSiteBusiness.com
We have recently upgraded our “Grave Care Business Course” for 2013. So if you are interested in starting a successful business where you can spend much of your time in beautiful cemeteries, please visit our main website at: Grave Care Business [www.GraveCareBusiness.com]
Today, I am going to show you how to find practically any cemetery in the United States with a Garmin GPS. For today’s example, I will use a Garmin Nuvi 780. Many GPS’s will work as long as they can accept a POI (Point of Interest) data set. Check your GPS instructions to see if it is compatible with this demonstration. You will also need a USB to USB mini cable to connect your GPS with your Computer.
Two downloads are important to this demonstration. The first file is the POI-Factory Cemetery Data Set. You can visit POI-Factory at this address: http://www.poi-factory.com
The second download is a Garmin program that allows your computer and your GPS to communicate with each other. Once you download and install this program, you will be able to copy the POI data set to your Garmin GPS. http://www.Garmin.com
There are 124,000 records within this POI file. Transferring the data to your GPS is a simple process and will only take a few minutes to complete.
To find the data on your GPS, begin at the main menu screen. Press “Where To” then press the down arrow once. You should see a button called “Extras.” From the list of POI files, choose the one called “Custom POIs.” You should now see a list of cemeteries in order of proximity to your current location.
I have used this data set extensively across the United States. I have visited hundreds of cemeteries and I have found many hidden and otherwise impossible-to-find cemeteries. This is a very neat tool. I hope it helps you find many cemeteries.
Once again, I would like to say that if you have ever thought about starting your own Grave Care and Grave Site Maintenance Business, please visit our website. We have developed a professionally produced comprehensive business course designed to help you start and operate your own Grave Care Business. Our website address is: http://www.GraveSiteBusiness.com
