Converting GPX to CVS

 

Ok, I GIVE UP.
Downloaded program to convert files, wouldn't open,
kept getting dinks and error message.
I'm too old and set in my ways to keep getting frustrated at this stage of life.
If anyone converts Flying J/Pilot and Church's Chicken to
CVS format for download to RM7710, please let me know.
Computers are Great when you know how to use them and just awful when you can't figure it out.
Off to drink now...........

Send me your e-mail. I'll convert them for you.

Converted F-J/Pilot .GPX to 4 column .csv using EPE yesterday. Not on that PC now or I'd send it to you !

After driving over 1.5

After driving over 1.5 million miles in US,Canada
and Mexico, I find it hard to go anywhere and not
use GPS now.
Drove truck for 10 years in 70's and 80's with just
maps and CB. Never got lost but got really confused at times!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Picking up new Motorhome end of month and back to traveling more. Sure makes traveling easier when you just punch some buttons and listen to voice tell you which way to go.
After seeing this country both ways, don't understand why anyone wouldn't want GPS.

Don't give up

Maybe this link will be helpful

What program did you download that would not work?
Perhaps we can get it to work for you. Are you on a PC or a mac?

Note to JM: maybe we ought to add a place for a user to indicate if he/she has a PC or a Mac

Dumber than Dirt!

I have PC. But try as I might, do searches and read,
most of this stuff is above my Skill level or patience.
Thanks to hercegovac, he helped me out.
Now after more searches, reading manual, can't figure out if I can download BMP icons....
Don't know if RM 7710 will accept them or if I'm once again not doing it right.
Also don't understand difference of Custom POI's and
Alert POI's that my allows for downloads.
You intelligent guys have been most helpful and I thank you for helping us feeble ones...........

We will get you thru this.

Here is a link that discusses the unit you have.

Nuvi 650 and 1350.

I Understand

youe fustration. That is why I stick to take me from point A to B. I read this stuff and can't make heads or tail what they are talking about. I can download the map and anything else is just luck. I did do the red light camera and it is working (suprise).

Thanks I finally read far

Thanks I finally read far enough down to find out it doesn't allow for Custom Icons at this point.

I'm with you. I have a lot of custom POI's that I've downloaded from here and hundreds of others that I've created myself. I use .csv exclusively and get all of the proximity alerts and TourGuide alerts. And I create the POI's in Notepad to keep it simple.
