I searched and only found one POI file for Menchies stores in Ohio. Is anyone else considering creating one for CA? Or would anyone else like for one to be available? Their web site shows 70 locations either open already or opening soon in the state, and they don't seem to be finding their way very quickly into the Garmin poi database. Up until now I have only created smaller CSV files manually. If no one has one already in the works, and/or if there is interest, I might take a stab at using Extra POI Editor to create this one...
If you have one started or are interested in this go for it try your hand Good luck
It may be easier to strip the data from the website and put it into a spreadsheet to extract the elements needed to build the file. If you want, I can help you with Excel by providing the command strings needed to reformat the data. Send me a PM so we can exchange emails and files.
Thanks, will do. Got kind of busy, so probably won't be able work on this as consistently or as quickly as I'd like, but definitely want to figure it out and do it. Was thinking I'd have to extract and reformat the data manually. Your offer to help will definitely make it easier.
So few of these places a POI file is necessary just to find out the closest one to your location is a mear 130 miles away?
Hmmm perhaps they should consider advertizing w/Garmin instead
Well its taken a few years, but with some extra time on my hands, finally got around to creating a POI file for these great FroYo stores. First discovered them when I saw an episode about them on the TV show "Undercover Boss", where the CEO goes into one of the stores incognito as a new employee - funny but informative as well! Anyway, too many locations to take on the whole state or country... the store locator on the web site makes it a bit difficult to capture large numbers of locations. But I did get 66 locations throughout most if not all of southern Cal., mostly in the San Diego and the Los Angeles areas and even some out to a few desert locations and a few north of L.A. but still in the southern part of the state.
