a new POI file

 

I have a suggestion for a new POI file - i searched and didn't see anything on this.

You need to read the book and make sure there is no copywrite that stops you from copying the book. neutral

i'm not copying the book - i'm collecting gps coordinates i'm pretty sure they don't have a copywright on that razz

Garmin Beta POILoader 2.4.0

Hi all, don't know if this is the correct place to ask this, but i need some help !! I have just bought a brand new Garmin Nuvi 1490t but it does not support mp3 files and i wish to install voice alerts. The only way i can do this is to tx the files to WAV format and use POILoader Beta 2.4.0 to do this. Has anyone got access to the file and if so, can i have a copy.

Many thanks in advance.

waterfalls poi

They may.

If you copy the coordinates directly from the book you could be copying intentional errors that were put in the book to catch copyright violators. Incorrect coordinates have long been used (centuries) by cartographers for this very purpose. I haven't seen the book so I don't know if this information is even in there though...

There is nothing wrong with using the book to find the locations either in person, or via Google Earth and then measuring the locations yourself but directly coping the coordinates may in fact be a copyright violation.
