Can not load custom poi files

 

To whom it may concern

I own a garmin C330 I have finely been able to load poi files on to the unit which I found on your site. My problem is there is no poi files for Syracuse NY or at least very little I have been trying to add my own but I have had no luck.
I tried to add them to the same folders witch already have CVS files and found that would not work I tried to make my own CVS folder and add longitude and latitude with no luck can you tell me how to load my own poi files.
To give you more information on how I went about making the file I used Microsoft Excel added my latitude and longitude in this format and saved this file in a CSV format 76.82748,43.101402,test@20
PS if you would like I can send latitude and longitude with names of the schools in Syracuse.

Excel to CSV

I'll take a look at your file and see if I can figure out what's wrong.

Check your email for a message from me. Reply with your file attached.

Poi file

I tried changing the way I placed the latitude and longitude in to Excel.
I placing latitude in one box and then I place longitude in the next and then the description of the file.
I then tried loading it again to the C330 and It looked as if it was going in to the unit.
The unit showed loading maps and the poi loader program said it was successful but when I tried checking it there was nothing there.

thank you

negative latitude

I looked at your file and noticed the latitude was in the eastern hemisphere (a positive number). Changing it to a negative number will put it in the western hemisphere, and then it should work fine.
