POIs by Manufacturer

 

Does anyone have a list of manufacturer's. This list would contain the location of repair shop listed as Frightliner, Cat, Cummins, Detroit, Workhorse or anything that would help a stranded motorist, RVer, that would need help.

If you use S&T

There is a POI Megafile for Streets and Trips users at:
http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/2595-poi-mega-file-pushpin-col...

The data can be broken out into individual files and saved as GPX for use in a GPS.

How Do You Convert to GPX

How do you convert this file to GPX. My version of S&T is 2005 and this file does not open in it.

I would prefer GPX anyway.

OneRVer
I generated the following:

This is a listing of CAT Diesel RV Center Network. The listing shows what each location provides.

Level 1: Engine
Level 2: Engine/Chassis
Level 3: Entire Coach

List of Manufacturer's

I recently posted RV Repair and Service that includes that info for Cat, Cummins and Freightliner.

Thank you all very much.

Thank you all very much. This is just what I am looking for. -Steve

Not downward compatible

The POI Megafile isn't downward compatible. It's a limitation of the software, not the file. MS didn't allow for these files until at least 2009, and probably the 2010 version. I'm waiting to upgrade mine to 2011.

I was looking for a way to convert this file to GPX. Does anyone know if this can be done?

The file is for S&T 2010 where it can be read and the pushpin sets output to GPX. If you want to convert it, download the 90 day trial version of S&T and then load up the pushpin set.

Making a file

I am wanting to start my on file for POI's. When I downloaded some of the files on this site I cannot open them.

I figure the only way I can learn is to see how/what you guys are doing. What do I need to do to be able to open them. I have Copilot V-8 and cannot download to it as of yet.

I have a few idea's of different POI's that I would like to contribute to this site. Just need a push in the right direction. Thank you all, -Steve

PC or Mac? csv or gpx?

If you're using a PC, Notepad will open a csv or gpx file. You may need to associate the file type with Notepad once.

Notepad is not the easiest way to create a POI file but it will work. It is what I use if I want to modify a POI file I download from here if I find I need to make a small change to it.

files

I have a pc and one of the files is .os and the is .csv

I will try to move them into note pad. Thank you,

I prefer to open the csv files in Excel. I find it is easier to work with. You then need to save it as a csv file to use with Poi loader.
