.csv File Word Limits

 

I created a .csv POI file and in the 4th column I included information about each location. I wanted to include a history of each location, but it seems I was a bit too wordy on some of them. When I load them into my gps it only includes the history in the more section to a certain point where it is cut off.

Does anyone know a way to fix this without shortening the histories? Or if not does anyone know the word or character limit for the more section of the file?

Thanks

If you have a lot of added

If you have a lot of added information you want in your file you would be better off using the gpx file method.You can use Extra Poi Editor at http://turboccc.wikispaces.com/Extra_POI_Editor .Just fill in the blanks after you download your file to it.

Charlesd45 beat me. But yeah, you should create gpx files instead of csv. With gpx you can also attach a picture to each location.

Thanks.

I'm fairly new at this. I think learning how to do gpx files will be my next project.

Using a spreadsheet for .csv POI file?

If so, don't forget Excel has a limit on how much data it will export in each cell. You can put way more data in the cell than it will import and export to/from other sources.
