Can you see it listed under the same subject or do you have to decipher where it is in the massive poi's massive list on your device. I have the Garmin Nuvi 260. Thank you?
I'm not sure what you are asking exactly, but let me try.
When loading custom poi's, they will not show up in your factory listings. You will need to look at EXTRA/Custom POI.
When you make up your folder to load, you can organize it how you like. I have mine divided by AUTO, FOOD, STORES, RADIO and so forth.
I then place the csv, and bmp files in the respective folder (you don't need mp3 as your unit won't play them).
/Food/Mcd.csv and mcd.bmp
/Food/braums.csv and braums.bmp
You will notice that after you load the file your subject headings will be the Folder then name of the csv file. Your top heading will be view all, so then you can see all the files in that folder at once.
It works for me. Let us know if you have more specific questions. You will point the poi loader to MY POI.
When I went to the POI Loader, when it said please select where you would like to save your points of interest, I chose Garmin. Should I try to undo that? and do it way you said? Is there a way to undo it?
You did right to save to your gps. What I was talking about was organizing your files on the computer before using the poi loader. Remember that every time you use the loader it will wipe out any previous loads. So I always have this setup on my computer and if I change one file I can just reload.
So, I have the files already saved on my computer, but this will help keep them organized so let's say if I want update the entertainment folder, I do not have to reload all my poi files? Is that what you mean? Right now all of the POI files are in the My Poi folder on my computer. When I look at them on my garmin now, they are listed with whatever the title of the poi file was which is ok. I am not sure what the advantage is to what you are saying. Is it so everything does not have to be wiped and reloaded?
Every time you do an update you will need to reload everything.
You have a folder My POI. Make subfolders for FOOD, STORES, ENTERTAINMENT or what ever. Put multiple csv in each sub folder. Now when you search the extra/custom poi you should have headings, then can look at your list of csv files.
Every time you load with the poi loader it will wipe out everything else on your gps.
When using POILoader, it will load your POI files over the existing POIs on your gps. Therefore, if you want it to remain on your gps, leave it on your computer.
What he meant in his posts, was to create separate category folders in your "MY POI" folder. So when you are looking for restaurants, open the "FOOD" directory in your gps, thereby avoiding all the other non-food POIs. Much cleaner than scrolling past dozens of POI files.
I think I got it know.
