I've read the faqs here and the POI loader help. Please tell me whether I understand this correctly. I now have custom POI files on my nuvi200. I want to add to them. I've read that the new ones will replace any that are already there. So I have to load the new and old ones together, correct? I can't just add the new ones and expect the old ones to stay put?
If that is true, is it a good idea to delete the old ones from the nuvi before loading the combined old/new file just to eliminate any possibility of corrupting the data?
Yes, when you download POI's the file is overwritten with the new. However , there is a work around. See the following post: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/8779. I have not tried this yet, so I can't speak to the outcome. Having many custom alerts associated with my POI's, this sounds like the way to go. Hope this helps.
If you don't do the work around, you can just load them all again. You don't need to delete the old ones first.
It seems to have worked perfectly. Thanks for the tip. I had been putting off updating POI files because of the hassle of always having to re-do the alerts. Now I only have to do them when I add an update to my alert folder. The rest is a walk in the park.
