Addresses are missing

 

When loading the POI file to my Garmin 255W, the colum D which contains address did not loaded into the Garmin.I can only see the info from the fist 3 columns A, B, C (longitude, latitude and name of the business)

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated

You can re-work the files

You can re-work the files and put line breaks in see http://www.poi-factory.com/node/19757 .I take the easy way out and use Extra Poi Editor and load most of my csv files to it and build alerts into the file I want and save as a gpx file.Gpx will give a better display.Here is the info.

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.

It's about the Line- If a line can be drawn between the powers granted and the rights retained, it would seem to be the same thing, whether the latter be secured by declaring that they shall not be abridged, or that the former shall not be extended.

What file are you

What file are you downloading and converting to gpx?That does does not show all the info and no more button.

Using Extra Poi Editor make sure to check your settings.Click options,preference,under filter make sure check mark in enable automatic phone number extraction and enable automatic state and postcode extraction.Do this before loading the csv file to EPE.

That program can do a lot of things for custom poi files.Especially using gpx files you can do so much more to build other information into the file.
