What to do with downloaded .csv files

 

I've downloaded several .csv POI files that I use in Google Maps. Sometimes if the .csv file has a column D I must delete that column before Google maps will accept the file because column D has special characters or is to long.

So what mapping program do you guys use that support these .csv files?
I would like to put some of these POI's in Garmin's basecamp but basecamp will not accept .csv files.

Thanks,
Tim

Extra POI Editor is what you want to use !

Garmin supplies a program, POI Loader which reads 4 column CSV files and converts them to Points-of-Interest which can be found on your GPS as Extras. There are several good tutorials and FAQs about loading POI files under the learn tab.
