The article on manually crating a POI is good. However, I hate wqorking with spreadsheets. Does anyone know of a freeware software program that lets you easily create POIs?
You can use Notepad.
Just put commas in between the fields.
I use POIedit, it is freeware.
I use Google Earth to find and create a KML file with the POIs. I feed that into IGO POI Explorer (made for iGo POIs, but handy to convert from KML to CSV) and export as a CSV. Finally, I run that thru POI Validator from this web site. You can download the IGO POI Explorer here - http://inetcom.hu/mick/igo/
www.poicreator.com lets you create POIs over the web without downloading shareware- it also lets you search for relevant data.
POI Editor is another web-based one you can try. It doesn't seem to read the third column in the Garmin format most of the time, but I do like the drag and drop feature on what appears to be a Google map.
I use it to create or correct a few coordinates at a time and import them into my actual POI files, which are in .csv format.
