Does anyone know If there is an "Alternative Fuel Stations" (cvs version) POI file in the POI files listings ?
there are many different gas stations in North America, do you have any names in mind?
I have several in my library to share...
You mean like this? http://www.poi-factory.com/node/21702
Thanks for the response but that POI file is the "gpx" version.
Gpx files works with the Garmin 255 just like csv files do.Load the same way with poiloader.See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/6203 .If you do want it as a csv file just load gpx file to extra poi editor and save as a csv file.
Thanks Charlesd45, I followed your instructions, it worked like a charm.
Thanks again... have a great day !
Glad to help.With using gpx files it is easy using Extra Poi Editor to build the alerts in so you can use express instead of manual mode for poiloader.If interested here is how you do it.
You can download Extra Poi Editor at http://turboccc.wikispaces.com/Extra_POI_Editor and build the distance in for the alert. When you download the program if you get message about OCX file missing scroll down on the main page and under troubleshooting you will find the Extra Poi Editor Installer that you will need to download. Once installation is completed you will need to set up the preferences you want first. Under options click on preferences. For example using ft for input. Under units you will see editor, select Imperial/US. For Field Read select metric and Field save select Metric. After setting your preferences click on file and click open to select from your computer the file you want to build the distance alerts for. Then go to edit and click on replace field. Once the next screen comes up use the down arrow for Field name and pick proximity. Under new field value put in the distance in feet you want for the alert. Then click replace all. You now have distance set for each custom poi. Then save as a gpx file. You will lose the built in alert if you save as a csv file. The nice thing about this method is that you can use express mode for poiloader.
