Ov2 conversion won't show correctly on a tom tom

 

Hi All,
Hoping someone can help. I have a list of custom POI's that I use on my garmin in .csv format. I am trying to share them with a co-worker who has a tom tom. And used the converters online. Everything seemed to go ok, but when I go to use them on the tom tom it says there are not poi's in the folder.

Can someone help me understand how to convert these correctly?

Quick note: I use a mac so I can't utilize the windows utility converter programs.

Thanks,
Justin

If the files came from the POI-Factory, you can download OV2 format files instead of CSV.

I doubt his CUSTOM POI files came from here.

If the POIs have a .ov2 extention after converting them, then they are correctly converted. Confirm you are putting the converted files in the TT map folder.
