POI question (same location issues)

 

If I have a POI file in my custom POI folder like "Walmart No Parking" (csv format) and I have another POI file like "RV Unfriendly Locations" (gpx format) in the same custom folder and there is a location in each of the files that has the same GPS co-ordinates, will that cause some kind of conflict on my nuvi while I'm driving along the road and pass by that particular location?

Will both POIs show up on my GPS screen? or will they cancel each other out? (i suspect if I had a sound file for each file that would cause a problem)

thanks

Probably not

I don't think it would cause a problem any more than multiple instances of a restaurant or fuel stop. I would consider merging the two files though and the elimnating the duplicate locations. Extra_POI_Editor will allow you to open both, merge them, and then eliminate the duplicates. You can then save the combined file as a single entry in your custom poi.

Will Extra_POI_Editor allow

Will Extra_POI_Editor allow me to merge csv and gpx files together into either one csv or one gpx file?

And, where would I get the editor?

thanks

Yes

Do a search on Extra_POI_Editor and you will find not only a very lengthy discussion providing the history of the editor's development but the location where it can be found. I strongly suggest you scan through the entire thread to pick up tidbits on the operations as well as read the notes on TurboCCC's Extra Poi Editor page on required files and installation.

went to this

went to this site:

http://turboccc.wikispaces.com/Extra_POI_Editor

site says the editor works on nuvi 7x0s

does anyone know if it will work for my nuvi 650?

Yes

Yes as far as the gps but note from Extra Poi Editor.
Works under Windows 98, XP & Vista. Sorry no Mac version for now .
Edit if you get message after download listed below scroll down on the download page to Troubleshooting for the extra file to download,

Are you missing the required OCX file?

Use the installer instead. You may only have to do this once since this will install all the required files for future releases. This is just an install to get the library files. You should always use the latest version of Extra_POI_Editor.

Extra_POI_Editor_Installer+v402.zip <- Try this one first. It is the most recent! Unless I missed, it should be fine.
Extra_POI_Editor_Installer+v250.zip <- This one always worked.
