I have an outdated poi file csv of red light cameras,on my c330. Do they have to be removed before I download a new list from this site, or does it overwrite. If it needs to be removed, how do I go about it>
When you load new Custom POIs, all the previously installed Custom POIs are overwritten. There is no need to delete them first. However, if you wish to delete all the Custom POIs that you have installed, you can select that option from the POI Loader screen when you run the program.
Motorcycle MaMa is right ......... If you don't have the Poi Loader just go to Garmin.com and download the Poi Loader Its free From Garmin
Is there a way just to remove the ones you dont want? Instead of removing all of them? I used the POI loader and it seems its either feast or famin. Either delete them all or not. Any way to delete just one or two? And when you say they get overwritten, can you NOT add new POIs with loosing the other ones? Sorry for the questions. Im new to this.
You can open the excel file and delete the lines you don't want anymore one at a time and then save the updated file.
Remove them from where? The Unit, no. The file, yes. However, it isn't that big of a deal, just delete them out of the file and reload everything.
you can keep poi files without reloading "all" files each time you run poi loader.
For example, you have all of your nice poi files in one folder. You have the fast food and electronic stores, the neat and cool places. These will probably not change too much. When you load these either to the SD card or Internal, you end up with one poi.gpi file. (Look in the folder ►garmin ►poi). If you then fire up poi loader and load one poi file that contains one entry of say "Bobs house", then that's all you end up with on your gpsr, the last file or files loaded. All of your previously happy and neat and cool places are gone. To prevent having to load all those neat and cool places and bob's house, you'll have to rename the first file to
"anything you want.gpi" for example neat_and_cool_places.gpi then run poi loader and load bob's house. You'll end up with poi.gpi (which will be bob's house) and neat_and_cool_places.gpi
If you want bob's house and the neat and cool places to remain basically until you rename or delete them, rename the poi.gpi (remember, it's bob's house) to duh, bobs_house.gpi
Now you'll have bobs_house.gpi and neat_and_cool_places.gpi The next time you load a file with poi loader you'll have bobs_house.gpi and neat_and_cool_places.gpi and poi.gpi (the file you just loaded)
If you need more help... search " gpi "
