FAQ: Creating POI Files
Hello, I would like to create a custom POI with an alarm that notifies me when I near the POI. I have a Garmin Nuvi 2539 and 2557. I looked around on the internet, but found no clear instruction on creating a custom POI.
I am using a Garmin 3790 and I loaded the casinos_usa_csv file and when I select a casino location it comes on the screen but it does not show the GO tab. I would appreciate any suggestions!
Very strange thing with EPE today. I downloaded the Speed Cameras and Red-Light Cameras files today as I do every week. And as I've done every week for the last ten years or so, I opened the Speed file first, deleted the "poi-factory " part in every line, saved and closed the file, and used EPE to convert it to a .GPS file. Everything was cool.
I created a GPX file in EPE "Hundred_Eats in_AL_2016.gpx". When I try to open it in Basecamp or Mapsource I get an error but it won't say what the error is. It is uploaded to "100+ dishes to eat in Alabama before you die". Anyone have any ideas of how to trouble shoot this problem?
Is there a specific way the particular POI entry (name, address, phone number, etc) has to be formatted so that the device only announces part of it and doesn't try to say the whole thing (which usually ends up truncated in speech)?
When I connect garmin to Mac I can see michalin green guide but I can't see it through device anyone got any ideas.
Thanks in advance Dell
This tutorial mentions using http://text2speech.us to create text to WAV files, but I can't get it to actually do anything. I've tried different browsers. Does it work for everyone else?
In Google My Maps, I have compiled information found of several web-sites and I've created detailed maps for Route 66.
I've created one map per state for each map I've :
- A list of Point of Interest
- Tracks to follow Route 66
I've exported those in KMZ and then converted them into GPX files so that I can use them in OSMAnd for turn-by-turn and voice navigation.
I am having trouble getting the POI icons to show up on my uconnect 8.4N/RB5. I am able to load the files and the files show up with everything I loaded. The only thing is the icons on the map itself, none will display. The file is good because I loaded the same file onto my Garmin Nuvi and they show up.
Any help would be appreciated, Dodge is no help
I hope I am not posting this in the wrong forum! I have loaded multiple POIs into my 3597. I see them in "INTERNAL STORAGE" on my PC when looking at the 3597! I have gone through the exercise whereby I created a TEST POINT ONE with EPE. When I approach the REST POINT ONE, the 3597 does, indeed, "announce that I have approached the TEST POINT ONE POI!
This has been an ongoing problem for some time now but something happened recently to make it worse.
When I try to edit the distance alert, I am choosing replace field, then saving the file. When I check all POI have alert distance, After saving, when I open the file the distance is missing. What am I doing wrong?
I am having some difficulty creating the extended GPX version (rather than the standard GPX) file from a UCSV file. I never get the additional extended data. Can anyone offer any help when using GPSBabel to do this?
I have tried for literally years (not an exaggeration)to get BMP map icons to show for GPI POI on my 3590LMT.
I somehow managed it about 6 months ago and now I can't remember exactly what hoops I jumped through.
It is possibly one of the most annoyingly difficult things to do yet there's no real documentation or info on how to do it. Even the TurboCCC help file is corrupt.
Hey guys, here's a link or links with a bunch of programs for Windows and Mac, Garmin and others you might find useful. And many more here. You will like them:
I am a newbie to loading POI's onto my Nuvi 2595. I am using a mac with poi loader and basecamp. I have uploaded GPX files that I have created in basecamp then exported to a file and files that I have downloaded from POI-factory. I have questions with a couple of discrepancies that I have observed.
Created new graphics for DD (Dunkin' Donuts) and McDonalds. Both are 48x48.bmp files
Not sure how to provide them to the forum as they are not POI CSV or GPX files.
