FAQ: Creating POI Files
I have just updated the KOA file that I maintain. I finally had time.
Unfortunately since Extra poi editor does not work I had to use Google Earth and Google Maps.I looked at each "new" location to determine if it was truly a campground. I left the marker where Google placed it. Some are in the middle of the campground and some are at the entrance.
Any corrections would be greatly appreciated.
Anybody use Extra POI Editor? I've been using v6.04 for some time and now all of a sudden the software is 'locking up'. Won't open POI's, and can't close it - have to use Task Manager to shut it down.
I've tried uninstall and reinstall with no success. Suggestions appreciated.
When I try to use the Extra installer, it says it completed and I see the program in control panel. However, I cannot run the exe. In my Win10x64Pro machine, running the exe brings up the Microsoft Single Image installer as if Windows thinks it's an Office application. Any ideas on an alternative way to start the program??
Is it possible for POI files to be created or at least translated into Excel files when the originator creates them? I prefer to work with the POI files with Excel, and I spend a lot of time just parsing the data so I can. Even putting comma separators in csv cells would help with the parsing. When they also have inconsistent formats, it slows things down a lot.
I understand the POI format for a CSV file. I can certainly construct and format what I need for that using the format lat/lon,name,address, etc.
I need help defining the format for categories. I can find no info regarding including a category or making a separate category file. I don't want to use a file generator app - I just need to understand the format and I'll take it from there.
why is it that when I send my new favorites to my sd card,when im on the road and I go to Where to and I click on the poi files it is divided into several files like garmin,poi,current etc, I don't want to be scrolling through all that how do I just make it one file?

I've become relatively comfortable using POI Factory to create and load custom POIs to my Garmin Zumo 550.
However, I keep getting duplicate or triplicate custom POIs on the Garmin. I've searched allover the Factory site but cannot find a resolution to eliminate these or to avoid this problem.
How do I Create POI Files on here that can be Downloaded later as Toronto Police Locations?
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!
