No problem loading POI in 3790T but are POIs always flat

 

I used the diners, dumps, dives POI as a test. It loads and I find the POI list under Extras/Custom POIs. My question - Is there a way to have custom POIs show up under categories with an associated icon rather than a long list/flat file? For example, I would like to look under Extras/Custome POIs and see a icon (folder) for Diners and another icon for Fishing and ...

Is this possible? I searched the posts and faqs and didn't see any help on this.

Using POI Loader.

Look at this FAQ

That is the FAQ I used...

but maybe I didn't follow exactly although I thought I did. Let me do some more experimenting and post later.

Figured it out

POI only get categorized if you have more than one sub folder in the main POI folder. Weird. If you have two or more subfolders with POI in them it works fine.

Multiple custom POI files

Upload the custom poi file for Diners. On the card in the GPS where you uploaded the file, rename it to Diners.gpi

Upload the poi file for fishing. Rename it to Fishing.gpi

The files will show up under the custom POIs as separate listings.
