What does these files give you on the above subject. For instance, Childress, TX.. Is it just information on the city as a whole, or does it include streets, ect.? I'm new to the GPS world, so if I ask too many questions, tell me. It won't hurt my feelings. I know they are elementary to the majority of you.
If you downoad a csv file you can view it with notepad which should give you a general idea of what the file contains then decide if you want it on your gps. Additionally you can also edit the file deleting or adding lines as you see fit..
that's a really good suggestion, one I hadn't thought of. Hmmm... that may save me some time on future files... well you learn something new everyday.
Thanks raybonz, I did download it, opened in notepad, but all I see is: 11.1646,47.6849 "Austin". Do I assume that gives me a street map of Austin, TX., and the sub-divisions give me a map of the sub-division?
Ok people, I have it figured out now.
Once you start learning this technology is not all that complicated for us end users. I am glad to help if I can and if I don't know others will help you at this forum. This is what makes this forum work so well. Good luck with your new gps!
I am having a problem entering coordinates. I can't get it to take my decimal point. Guess a call to Garmin is in order. raybonz, I sure appreciate the help you have given me.
Sorry I didn't reply sooner but I lost power last night due to high winds here. Could you elaborate more on not being able enter to dec. points? Are you entering them in notepad or is this something you're entering directly into your gps?
raybonz, JM got me going. I had to use a different format. I'm trying to learn this thing so I can submit some POI's for my area. I'm not confident enough to enter anything into the GPS files yet. I try to follow the rule, if it's working don't try to fix it. :>)
