    GPS Quilt Shop Locator

    Does anyone know if there is a GPS plug-in for quilt shops? I know there are some for other businesses. If you know of one, can you please share the information? I have the major quilting travel books and my GPS will search by name but having a plug-in and not having to manually type everything would be great.

    The ones for other businesses are on mini flash drives that you literally plug into your GPS.

    I use an app for my iPhone called Poynt. It is for all businesses. You just type in Quilt Store and it gives you all stores starting with closest. You only have to type in "Quilt Stores" once, it saves your searches. When we were on a trip to Montana it was wonderful. I can't remember for sure but I think it was free or at the most $1.99.

    Wow, I didn't know that. I just tried it and my phone's gps found 6 shops near my home. I knew about all of them, but I can't wait to try it out on a trip. Thanks.
