  • How to Search for Exits and Mile Markers?

    I cannot find any map/GPS software or web based maps which can help me to find a point by entering the highway and exit number. Same highway and mile marker.

    I thought this function is very eazy to implement. Am I missing something?

    Is there anything? I was driving down to Florida this past week and it was driving me crazy that there was no way in iguidance that i could find out what fast food and gas stations were at the next couple of exits. Am i missing something, is there a way?

      There are multiple programs that can do that. Im not familiar with all of them, but Iguidance for instance, you can pull up points of interests, resteraunts, and search by distance. It will start with the closest ones. Unless you design you own nav programs, your not going to find something that fits EXACTLY how you expect it to be, but there are many intuitive programs out there that should be able to get the job done.

          Thanks for the reply.

          I know Iguidance has POI, but what i am looking for is something for when i am driving down the interstate and i just want a list of POI within .5 miles of the exit ramp for the next couple of exits. Is there anything that can do that?
