I am new to the site. What I am acutally looking for is the creator of the Home Depot POI files in Canada or Ontario, Canada. I do work for Home depot and Home depot Supplies (contract) and would like to help them update the files with more current new stores. I don't have the technical know how in order to create the files, but i do have all the addresses of the new home depot and home depot Supply Stores (Brafasco/Litmore) It is a bit selfish reason as this would help my guys out as i have just bought a few Garmins for my guys so that they stop getting lost.
He/She/They can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is an open project on Home Depots. Don't know if it is the US only. However, go to: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/413 and you will find some contact information.
Thank you for the link
that is a link to a thread on how I create my POI lists. It is step by step how to take an html list all the way to a .csv spreadsheet that your garmin can read.
What format is your Home Depot list?
Basically all my work orders with the addresses and phone numbers to all the new locations in the Ontario region, and a few other provinces usually 1 or 2 stores outside of Ontario (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Alberta, Quebec and British Columbia) I have used Google Earth, however some locations are SO new that they don't show up or don't give me the correct address.
For those locations that are too new for the address to be found on a lookup, you can create your own. Since you said some of your people are outfitted with gps units, when they go to one of the locations in question, they should save it to their favorites. (On the c550, touch the car icon on the map when you are in the proper location and it will be saved as a favorite. Then, download the favorite via Mapsource and you will have the actual longitude and latitude for that location.
I have posted an Ontario list of HD's. I have suspicions about a handful of the locations, though. Please give me some feedback.
