POI File Categories

We are going to Europe this Fall and I have made POIs for the cities and countries we are goint to. Would it be possiable to have a category for Europe. Do I send the files and you then make the category or do you make the category first then I send the files.

Mary, Nuvi 2450, Garmin Viago, Honda Navigation, Nuvi 750 (gave to son)

Europe files

You may have to send miss poi a email on that one, i did not see anything in the list of files for europe, she may have to make one for you or she may tell you to just send it and she will make a catagory then .

All you do is.
go to the upload and share cvs or gpx files on the right side of the screen. Fill in the blanks and it goes to miss poi, she will do her magic on it and post it. until she posts it is not available and if she has problems with it she will notify you by email.

Thank you very much.

Tornado time

Its that time of year where we here in Colorado spin off a few storms and send them east....every so often like last night they stay here and wreck some havoc!

It's those changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes nothing remains quite the same. With all of our running and all of our cunning, If we couldn't laugh, we would all go insane.

Have a good week!

Still on first page? That's

Still on first page? That's better than when I tried to find a suburban location of the DMV. It was inside a strip mall complex, but the GPS dropped me off a couple of blocks away sad Fortunately, I eventually found it.

Another peeve: unannounced summer hours. I was expecting to be near the front of the line when the DMV opened this past Saturday since I showed up 20 minutes early before the scheduled 8am open. When I got there, there were already 60+ people in line ahead of me since summer hours start at 7:30am. Still not too bad though. I was out of there by 9:30 although I had expected to be there until 11am. Sad how low my expectations of the DMV are.

I thought i was the only one with the 'nasty summer chest cold'.
Hope you're feeling better, Miss POI, 'though I'll probably be coughing 'till August!


Nuvi 660


Just downloaded and noticed one not far from my house so I took a ride. This was great, didn't even know there was one I'm informed...

Turning a NUVI into a PDA

Not sure where to place this, so here goes:

I enjoy garage sales and was thinking about how to turn my NUVI 660 into a PDA. The following is an example of books.

+000.00300,00.00000,Dan Brown,"PB - Angels And Demons
PB - Deception Point
PB - Digital Fortress
HB - The Da Vinci Code"

This is one entry of a csv file. The latitude is always 00.00000 and the longitude increases by .001 per author and the authors are in alphabetical order. Because the authors are displayed in longitude order they are also in alphabetical order in the NUVI. The original list is a text file, converted to csv by a PERL program, however, it could be done by hand with insertions not holding to the increment of .001.
In Colorado it works fine but in Asia.....


trying to see if I am page 2?

Happy Monday

Here we go again

Have a good week
