I have subfolder in my C drive

C_...\POI\-Food\foodl2.csv

I load my poi using poi loader

I cannot see subfolder on my unit.

No you don't have to create subfolders. See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25721 and it will cover both subfolders and no subfolders. Read step 9 carefully. Bottom line,make one folder on your computer and dump all your files in it. Note that you can also have a combination of subfolders and single pois.

I have 1 main folder...

Within the folder go all my poi's. Within the main folder I make a sub-folder for each poi that I have a jpg or bmp file for. I don't use sound files but you could place them within their sub-folder with the poi, bmp and wav so all files associated with a particular poi are in the same folder. Just gotta make sure all the files withn the sub-folder have the EXACT same name except for type of file. (wav jpg bmp )

Problem solved

Thanks
Problem solved. I was loading each subfolder (hotel, food) instead of loading the main folder (POI).

Glad you have it worked out.

Check Operation Before Your Trip

Always check GPS operation after updating Maps and installing Custom POI's.
