38,000

 

I downloaded the new RLC/Speed cams, then POILoadered them to my GPS. The program said I succeeded in loading 38,000 locations. Such a nice even number, and I have a feeling I'm a mid-range POI Factory user in terms of location totals. shock

Which of your GPS

did you load them on? Does that many slow any aspect of operation?

...just the DriveLuxe 51. I doubt that they affect the GPS at all. On my older devices without School Zone alerts, I have a single POI file for pseudo-School Zones that adds an additional 170,258 locations which are TourGuides and the devices worked well:

POI's

I have a combined POI file of over 100 POI files. That only amounts to about 37,000 KB (37 MB) of space taken up.
It shows up as "Custom POI's.gpi"

somethings not right here

@CraigW "3,176 Red Light Camera intersections. 2,689 Speed Cameras" is what is listed on the http://www.poi-factory.com/poifiles/us/red-light-cameras page.

Did you mean 38,000 bytes instead of locations?

No, it's the POIs

No to bytes. After a successful upload of POI files to a Garmin device with POI Loader, I received a message saying something along the lines of "You have successfully uploaded 38,000 POI locations." Do you see this when using POI Loader?

For what it's worth, I load all my POI files (new or revisions) to a single .gpi file, the default Garmin POI.gpi. I do not load the Speed and RLCs files separately giving them a unique .gpi filename. So if I update the Rest Areas Combined due to a mahoney update or update RLCs from a Globeturtle update, I update all POIs files into a single .gpi file even though most of the files and POI locations are unchanged.

I think that some people load POI files with POI Loader using unique .gpi filenames to avoid re-uploaded everything including the unchanged POI files but I don't do that as I want a single .gpi file for custom POIs on my devices. Does this make sense?

[Later update]

I just re-uploaded my POI files to my computer using POI Loader and using my standard alerts for some files. The "success" message is

Congratulations, you have successfully installed 38,000 custom POIs to your computer.

My POI.gpi filesize which includes sixteen POI files (csv or gpx) includes custom icons and custom audio in some cases is 6668KB: (Size = 6.51 MB (6,827,362 bytes) or Size on Disk = 6.51 MB (6,828,032 bytes)

Thanks

OK, I see where the 38,000 comes from now. 38,000 is the total number of locations for all your POI file file locations. Thanks for the clarification.
