I thought the poi alerts for rest areas told you whether the rest area had restrooms. When I was driving this past week on major roads, I didn't see anything that told me that. Was I mistaken, or is there something I didn't load right?
The info on facilities available at the Rest Areas (assuming you are using the "Rest Areas Combined" POI file) is available by looking at the actual POI on your GPSr in, depending on Model, the "Extras" or "Custom POI" folder on the GPS.
What you will see via the actual alert bar will be the "info" on the Rest Area location. such as Highway, Mile marker, Direction of Travel and whether it is a Rest Area, Welcome Center, Service Plaza or Turnout.
Hope this helps !
I was looking at the Rest Area 'csv' files by State and noticed some have the text after the 2nd comma (longitude, latitude,) enclosed in quotes. Others like CT & VT do not have this 3rd field in quotes.
These files have been here a while, so I seriously doubt that I'm the first to notice this. Is there a purpose for enclosing the 3rd field, POI name in quotes? Which is correct and what effect, if any, will either method have?
Thanks for the response. I have a 255w, and all I was seeing was that there was a rest area, no other information. I was traveling I-40 East of Oklahoma City.
Would I have to touch the screen to get the other information? Would the 255w show the information if it was available.
I will check the lat/long to see if the information is in the file for those rest stops, but I did see it in there for most.
To see additional information select Where to>Custom POIs>Rest Area. The top one is the closest one to you. Select it.
On the 255, you have to select More on the POI screen (below the green Go).
