Can't load multiple POI databases with POIloader

 

I"m trying to load:
Walmart
Rest Stops
Low Clearance (from www.lowclearances.com)

I can load any one of those to my Garmin DriveSmart 60LMT and see them in Basecamp.

Each is under a top directory thusly:
../CustomPOIs
../CustomPOIs/Walmart
../CustomPOIs/rest
../CustomPOIs/Low

Each has a .bmp file and the walmart and rest stops have a .wav file. The root file names are identical.

I'm doing the loads manually. Alerts are prompted for and 8000 feet is used for distance.

But if I run POIloader against the root directory to get all of the databases, I don't get the custom icons and only see the POIs if I do a search.

My brain is fried and I'm going in circles around a single POI in my head smile

Here are the instructions for custom pois http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25721 and the video version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fhhb5FPyLW0 . Supporting videos can be found at http://www.poi-factory.com/node/45601 . Your unit requires wav and sox.exe to get voice alerts for your custom pois.

Problem solved

Thanks for the reply. I followed those, carefully I thought.

I think I was just failing to go to the highest detail view. Working now.

Good work.

Glad you got it working!

Glad you got it working Captain!

POI Factory is the place to hang out if you have questions.

I have one question for you ... why only three POI files?

Most of us are addicted to the darn things and load way more than 3!

Time for you to get busy! Ha!

LOL I totally agree ..... the POI files on this site become an addiction
