Walmart File Size

 

I just downloaded the new Walmart GPX file. It seemed nearly 2x the size of a previous file downloaded last week.

Is it correct???
Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks.

It was updated today, but... perhaps you previously used the CSV version (which is about 2x smaller)?

Size does matter

I checked my system:

Old file size 1.35MB
New file size 2.58MB

Walmart File Size

I have no idea why the size changed. Everything looks correct on my side

But why?

Why did the file size change by adding one POI?

size of POI file

Looks like the file size doubled. Could each entry now be in the file twice? If you read in the old file, added a new entry, then saved to the old file, perhaps an append was done instead of an overwrite. Makeing each entry appear twice.
Just a thought.

Size of POI File

When you install the file on you GPS does it work all right? When you check for a location is it listed twice?
