Is it possible to just load these cameras for just a few states in your vicinity instead of all 50 states when downloading from POI factory.
(IF ITS NOT COMPLICATED)
Once you've downloaded the speed and redlight camera files,
Open each one in Excel. Click on Column D and click on Sort & Filter in the toolbar, then click on Sort A to Z. Highlight and delete all the states or cities that you don't want and then save the file.
Open the file in Excel, Sort and Filter, then copy columns A to D for the states or cities you want and paste it into a new Excel worksheet.
I'm not sure why you would want to do this, the files for the speed (203KB) and redlight (267KB) cameras are tiny.
These are text files. Each location is one line of the text. The entire US and Canada is a very small file. There is no need to edit them.
It is more important to keep the files updated on the GPS. For every update, the editing would need to be repeated.
Thanks for the tip. I'll have to try it.
Yes but you will have to manually edit the file to remove what you don't want. Whether it is complicated or not depends on your skill and free time. I wouldn't bother editing it. It's a waste of time.
I just read your question one more time, the answer is NO, it is not possible to specify the areas or states you want to download. You can only get the entire POIs.
Either way I listed, it's about a 30 sec job to edit each file.
That's why I don't do it. I was just replying to the OP's question.
I agree with one of the prior postings that editing the files is a relatively small job.
HOWEVER, it has to be done every time you download the files. It might be worth it if they were huge files that hogged the memory of your device, but they are actually small enough that I do not consider the savings in space worth the inconvenience.
