new & interesting places for your GPS

POI editing

 

Hello all,
I have created a list of meetings that meet on different days of the week. My nuvi 660 sorts them by long/lat. I would like to sort them by day and then each day by time (earlyist to latest).
If someone could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

You won't be able to do this on the GPS unit. The GPS unit list them in order of proximity to your current location. The list will change as you move.

It seems like what you are trying to do would be better served on a PDA or smartphone.

How about this

You Need only create the following folder structure on your computer:
> My POI (Main folder)
>> 1 Sunday (subfolder)
... 0800 Church Breakfast.csv (0800 is military time)
... 1430 Football Viewing.csv
>> 2 Monday (subfolder)
... 1800 Homeowners Meeting.csv
... 1930 Township Meeting.csv
>> 3 Tuesday (subfolder)
... 1300 Bingo.csv
... 1600 Harness Racing.csv
etc.

Since categories sort alphabetically, this should display as you want; there would be only one location in each csv file. If these meetings never change, I guess it would work, but it is quite cumbersome if the meetings change each week. I suspect a PDA to track the meetings and the GPS to find them makes more sense for most people.

Thanks for taking the time

As I said, categories sort alphabetically, so they won't be by proximity. There is only one location in each file, so distance is not an issue.
