Using POI Files

 

I've been excited to find this site and was hoping to be able to use some of the POIs to load into my 2015 Accord GPS system. However, the format of one of the files (Missour Winers) does not have the record format suggested in this site. Why? Also, I can't download the editor Extra_POI_Editor.exe from any of the sites available. Any suggestions of other sites?

Custom POIS

Try this for downloading Extra_POI_Editor.exe . http://camerabob.dyndns.org:5190/TurboCCC/ . What file format are you looking for to use with the Missouri Wineries ? EPE lets you covert a csv file to several formats. If you are looking for GPX format, just load the CSV file to EPE and click on file top left and select save as. Then click down arrow on Save as type and pick GPX.

Thanks for the install EXE for EPE!!!

I was trying to upload a CSV which is one of 2 formats the other is KML. My current problem, regardless of the format is an error message; "Max number of categories is reached...delete one or more..." The issue is there are no categories in the GPS system at all. Any thoughts???

Possibly the Categories in

Possibly the Categories in the file you are trying to upload?

Have you put our files in folders to download them?
Reading my post may help. It took me a while to figure out just what I needed to do. I do find that I can not upload a CSV file. I have to convert them to kml.
Also you can only put a certain number of files per categories (folders) To put the red light cameras I had to delete all but the state I am in for it to be small enough to download.
Read my above post, I spent many an hour and days trying to do what you are doing.
Thanks Mary
