I loaded 22 Custom POI's and can't load number 23

 

I have a Garmin Nuvi 350. I loaded 22 custom POIS with icons, alerts, etc and now I tried to load number 23. It won't display it on my Garmin under custom pois. I also put in on the card and it sill won't display. If I delete a custom poi then it shows up. Did I reach the limit? I deleted some of the help in foreign languages to free up some room but how many can you have. Most are low KB but I have 1 at 1245KB and 1 1645KB. What happened? What can I do to store more? Thanks

I forgot to add that I gave each custom poi a new name so I could add them individually.

You need to make subfolders for your custom pois to expand the number and for all the custom pois to show. see http://www.poi-factory.com/node/8674

I took your advice and went

I took your advice and went into the Garmin/Poi folder and set-up 4 other folders. Then I copied all my points of my gpi files into these folders. There was not change. Should I have created a POI folder 1, 2 etc?

It should look something

It should look something like this example.

>My pois =main folder

>>Food=subfolder
>>>arbys.csv
>>>cracker barrel.csv

>>Parks=subfolder
>>>National parks.csv
>>>Fl state parks.csv

>>Alarms=subfolder
>>>redlight cameras.csv
>>>speed cameras.csv

Have you been renaming POI.GPI after each run of POILoader, so that you have 22 .GPI files?

You may have found an architectural limit.

Exactly. I have 22 gpi

Exactly. I have 22 gpi files because I did just what you said. I did create folders under CGarmin/poi and named them shopping, lodging, etc. It appears to be working now. Is this the right thing to do?

I think I may have hit an architectural roadblock. I tried to add one more and now it won't display under custom POI's. I put it in a subfolder with other pois and it should have displayed. Any ideas?

Did you get a message about

Did you get a message about not enough space to load the last file.When you set up the subfolders how many more files were you able to see under custom pois?Last thing go to my computer and with the gps hooked to computer find the drive and see how much space if any do you have left to use.

Based on you post it appears

Based on you post it appears you have been able to load more files since using subfolders.Make one more subfolder as a test and put the last one that didn't show up in it and see what happens.

How many subfolders do you have now?

I had 6 subfolders and I added one more. The\ gpi's all show now. I am not sure why...

You are reaching the limit

You are reaching the limit size in each folder.You must really be downloading some big files.Just hold your cursor on the subfolder that would not take the last csv file and see what the size is.That will give you idea of limits and compare the others to it.

I did this as above and it still only shows 20 .gpi files. It doesn't show my subfolders??

I have a Nuvi 200

I have a Nuvi 200

This file structure is used for loading all files at once, by pointing to the parent folder, "My POIs", as the source. All files are then compiled into a single gpi file. If you are seeing 20 different gpi files, are you renaming them and loading individually? If so, and you are pointing at the individual subfolders, you will lose the subfolders. To get around that, you can duplicate the subfolder by having an "Alarms" folder and another "Alarms" subfolder and you would point to the upper folder.

I loaded 22 Custom POI's and can't load number 23

Thanks for the explanation.....
