I have made a new FAQ that I would like everyone to take a look at. I have had some concerns lately regarding this topic and thought that it was time to clarify the process so that we don't have a big mess later.
I have a bunch of photos that are geo coded, AND I have a bunch of locations with lat/lon. I want to match them up. The lat/lon have names. So if I can place them on a map together, I can rename the photos to the locations.
Google Earth has too many other things cluttering up the screen. Would like to start with a clean slate, load both onto a map, and start renaming the pictures.
When creating a POI .csv file is it possible to specify the direction for an alert? Also, is it possible to specify the radius for an alert? How do I do this in manually creating a .csv file. I've searched and searched the internet for this information and can't find anything. I'm new to this so this may be "not-so-smart" questions so forgive if they are. Thanks for your help.
I downloaded POI files and opened them to see how to edit them. When I copy and paste the Latitude and Longitude into Google Maps, they seem to be backwards.
(Google shows me something in South America or somewhere else). If I reverse the order of the numbers, it shows me the right place.

nuvi 1490 LMT
Just installed this tool (5.32), worked pretty well - once.
Next time said ieframe.dll was missing / unregistered or some other related component was missing / unregistered.
Couldn't get it to go again despite uninstalling, reinstalling, turning off AV etc.
Writer says he can be reached in this forum, so I thought I'd post this here.
My Garmin had live theatre locations in the POIs. I recently got a Rand McNally TND 720 and it does not have them. Does anyone know how to move them from one to the other or can someone build a POI for them. Thanks
HELLO! CAN YOU PLS. TELL ME HOW TO DOWNLOAD POI FACTORY TO A CD..THIS IS FOR MY KENWOOD DNX5140
All branches of Fidelity Bank - PA now belong to WesBanco. I can not tell from WesBanco's website how many branches they have or even what states they are in. So this is the end of this POI file.
Hi, i have before created successfully one csv file for POIs along a trail in sweden where im from.
Now I im starting on a project to add information about shelters or camping spots along the same track.
My primary resource will be this page:
It has been a while since I did any of this. I had an old Garmin 265wt that died. Just recently I purchased a new Garmin Nuvi 3700 series.
I would like to move the old POI files off my SD card and back to my computer.
Once on my computer - I would like to edit or delete some of the files that I never used.
I am an incurably clueless noob. I have searched these forums over and over and still can't figure out how to do what I want.
I have a file I created with the following type coordintates
I save it in a .csv format and my Garmin can read it.
I just checked other poi files and find they are in this type format (which Garmin as no trouble reading)
Is there a program that will do the conversion for me?
As of today, Extra POI Editor doesn't appear in Win 7 when launched. The icon shows up in the taskbar, but nothing on the main screen. If I hover over the toolbar icon, the application preview shows up, but the application area is blank.
Any fixes? This is the main application I use to build POI files for our trips. Help!!!
How many sub-folders will work with the nuvi 50?
Say I have a folder "Food" and within food can I have a folder "Western" and another "Italian" and so on? I can only get the "Food" folder and csv files in that folder to load, the Western and Italian don't appear within the food folder.
I worked in an office where custom POI files were loaded with phone numbers and one other data set (birth date or month).
I have MS Streets & Trips which generates gpx files but does not create GPX files with the "more" data or list the phone number (although the S&T will show the data on the screen).
How can I generate CSV or GPX files which will include the additional data?
I'm wondering if all you nice poi file maintainers and creators, could possibly keep your csv's and or Gpx files when you update them named the same as prior to the update.
Hmm.. doesn't sound right. Ok here's an example. The last time the walmart file was uploaded it was called Wal-Mart_United States & Canada.csv.
Yesterday an update was put on the site called
I'm making a list of custom POI's at the moment using Extra POI editor. The problem is that for some reason some POI's simply will not show when the file is transferred to the unit (Nuvi 2445). I've had a look with excel at the file and can't see any way the ones that don't show up are different.
After loading POI's on my PC I get this error message
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action." I do not have the Garmin 2460 plugged in ( will be here tomorrow ) but do have a Garmin POI loader installed. Thanks for the help.
Finally I figured out how to get the CSV files to Basecamp....and the map to show the POIs.
I tried MyPOI Manager, POI Edit, POI Loader and GPSBabel to no avail... I could get the data to transfer but NO Map to show...
Then I downloaded from POI Factory the Tom Tom .0v2 download instead of CSV format.
