FAQ: Creating POI Files

text2speech.us?

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?

Icons in GPX

Hi,

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.

Dodge uConnect Nav systems

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

NOT BEING NOTIFIED ON GARMIN 3597 WHEN NEAR POI

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!

Basecamp Error When Viewing File in Google Earth

Creating Extended GPX from Universal CSV file

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?

TurboCCC: Where To menu, black dots, icons, GPI

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.

POI Loader Discrepancies

Hello,

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.

POI graphics McDonalds and Dunkin' Donuts

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.

Can't locate files

Hi:

Brand new user here. So far, I really like it. I would like it much better if I could locate the gpx file(s) it creates.

newbie trying to create a POI file

Hi all! I am a newbie with a Garmin nuvi (has an SD card that I would like to put my POI files on). I am pretty comfortable with excel and would like to start simple with a list of addresses of the schools in the district where my sister substitutes (no extra graphics or wav files).

Corrected CSV files for few POIs

Hi All,

I was looking for some POI location files. After downloading them I found lot of inconsistency in terms of number of columns for each combined within an address.
Therefore, I cleaned them up to have same level of granularity and can now be easily imported.

POI Download for Love's Travel Stops

I have downloaded the Love's POI zip file which contains a .csv and a .gpi file.I can load them to my Nuvi but when I call it up from my Custom POI category, it's not all there. My first location is about 450 mi from me when I know there is a Love's within about 70 miles. No matter how I load it in my GPS, POI Loader or via my computer, same thing, many known locations not showing.
