Streetpilot Category Question

 

Hi, I just got my C320 today so I'm a little new at this still. I got all of the maps loaded up and I've also loaded the Walmart POI files. I would like them to show up when I use the WHERE TO Shopping GENERAL MERCHANDISE category feature. Is there anyway to make this happen?

Thanks
Ryan

I believe you would have to

I believe you would have to organize your walmart poi's into a folder, "shopping" then in that put your folder "general merchandise" and in that put your actual poi file. That should give you the sub category you desire.
    folder                  folder                          file
Shopping --> general merchandise --> Walmart.csv

These would show up as "custom poi's"

Where to? > My Locations > Custom POIs

Any Poi files you download or create will be "Custom POI's"

You won't be able to go
Where to->shopping->gen merch->walmart

They are the ones that are integrated with the maps. We cannot manipulate those.

Custom POI's

Like mentioned above, the POI's you add or create will be in the Custom POI folder. However, once you know they are there it is really not an inconvienence, or a very minor one at most.

Under Custom POIs this shows the folder names as subcategories???

POI for major chains

I travel to a new city every week. The POI's I would like to see are Hertz airport rental return and Hilton family of hotels. Any idea if those exist? Also is there a way to store your present location for returning? That would solve the Hertz delimma. I have a C550.

When you're viewing the map, just touch the icon for your car, and it will ask if you want to save the location. That's what you do on a C530, so it should be the same on a C550.

I want it too, but...

I want the Hilton too, but need Enterprise Rentals. I am going to start on the hilton one and perhaps the enterprise as well if I can't find it. Haven't look hard yet.
