Can't see my old POI's after downloading new ones?

 

I purchased a new 50LMT after my old Garmin died. I added some POI's and they worked fine.I later added some new POI's. The new POI's are there but I can not see the original POI's. I looked in the memory and the old POI's are there but they are not showing up on the screen.I went to the download file to add the old POI's but It's telling the files are already there? Am I missing something?

use poiLoader

Did you use PoiLoader to load the POIs?

How are you adding POIs?

What procedures are you using to add POI?

Are you following this or doing something different?

When you run Poiloader you load all the files at one time. Based on your post. Did you load the orginials then go back and run poiloader with just the added pois? If yes the orginial pois were over written and you were left with just the last set.See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25721 for instructions.

Please go into much much greater detail on what you did and what you found.

What exactly is the "download" file? I assume it is a Folder but we need details.

Thanks all for your help

I did not have the old and new POI's in one file so I was over righting the old POI's.

THANKS!

did

you name the new poi file the same name as the old?

Good for you
