Best way to view a poi file on a map

 

Ok, so I haven't played around with my GPSr for awhile. Can anyone tell me the best way to suck in a POI file into something so that I can see where all the POIs are on a map.

I want to check a few of my "attractions" POI files to see if we will be going close to any of them while traveling up to Rochester, NY tomorrow.

Welcome Back

You probably need to convert your CSV POI files into something that can be read by MapSource (GPX) or Google Earth (KML/KMZ). You can do that conversion at http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/convert_input.

Go to

Go to http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/map_input draw a map.Take you csv file and put a header row for each column.Longitude,Latitude,Name and address.On right hand side you will see upload your gps data files here click browse and select the file.Again make sure you have a header row for each column.Then click draw the map

I don't have a Garmin GPS so I've never tried the Mapsource, but have to confirm that conversion to KML/KMZ format and viewing in the Google Earth works great.

gpsvisualizer worked great

gpsvisualizer worked great for me, thanks!

Another good program is http://turboccc.wikispaces.com/Extra_POI_Editor .Download your gpx or csv file to Extra Poi Editor and go to tools and you will see options to open in Google Earth or Mapsource.This program does lots of other things and is great for making custom poi files etc.
