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 recently purchased a 3597.
I am adding my custom POIs that I have been using on my 855.
The 3597 uses wav files and not mp3.
I built new wav files on the ATT page.
When I install these files through POI Loader I get a warning at the end that "Unable to convert .wav file to the proper format therefore this audio file was not transferred"
I have tried this many times I cant get the thing to work and load. what order do I input the info to get back all I need including name of the place. I have about 50+ so I want up run through a program that will give me all info back to us in my garmin.
Anybody around here that has tried the 90 day free trial?
I am thinking about to do it but i am a little worried, maybe its good and i cant live without it??
Well i cant afford to pay 500 dollar for it so it could be the best to just leave it!
But i am still curious so i may try it.
best regards Jocke
I downloaded the Flying J POI for Garmin. I'm now skeptical about it's accuracy because it doesn't even have my local Flying J in North East, MD. Any help here?
Ok. The SC BBQ Association has a listing of 24 BBQ establishments that they rate as worth driving/riding 100 miles to get to. So I'm trying to make a POI with them listed. Using Excel and saving as a CVS file
1.Column A put in Longitude.
2.Column B put in Latitude.
3.Column C put in Name.
Does anybody other than me think most the files are long overdue for updating!
I know EPE can do batch geocoding but I don't know how. I have a CSV file with Lat, Lon, Street, City, State, and Zip columns. How do I use this with EPE to get Lat/Lon filled in?
How do I delete a POI file from this site? I know how to upload and update. I can not fine where to delete one. I have several that have gotten old and I am not maintaining anymore.
I don't know about you guys, but there's one thing that I still haven't got over, and it has to do with points of interest!
I'm a very recent Nuvi 2595 owner after years with the TomTom line. I've downloaded several POI files and installed them on my 2595 and am curious as to the best method to keep things current.

Hi, I would like to know how can I get full address with Google earth ?
I have saved my favorites, extracted in KML and when I convert the file, I did'nt get the address!
Also my search found 5000 results and when I save the file, only the first 10 results appear!
My head is a mess right now!
I have been reading some threads about making an Icon for some days now, i may have got some parts right, some not so right.
I even started up my Irfanwiew and tried to get going but i think i may run out of talent with this project.
All this things about size an colors, 256 colors, 8 bit,, 24 bit and something about magenta really screwed me up.
Since the topic BMP Icon Discussions was meant to address the BMP Icon Library and adding or changing its content, I thought I'd create a new topic for people having difficulties with the use of icons.
I have the Nuvi 1490 with snowmobile maps loaded on SD card,..all works well.
In MapSource I created a waypoint of our cottage that we sled out of...
As soon as I go to the map on the nuvi it wants to navigate me to the waypoint.
I dont want this to happen, I just want it to be a POI like other POI's on the map...
What am I doing wrong here,...
I have a new Garmin nuvi 2597LMT and I'm rather new to creating custom POI files but I have successfully done so complete with my own icons and sound. Is it possible for elevation data to display on my unit? I have "mountain peaks and summits" and "county high points" POI csv files with available elevation data but I can't determine if this is possible and, if so, how to incorporate it.
Many, if not most, custom POI csv files on this website have a fourth column of descriptive text like address, city, state & telephone number in addition to the name label of the POI. When, where & how is that information imported into the gps unit? Are all Garmin gps units capable of displaying/utilizing that fourth column of data?
I recently posted a query about creating line breaks in displayed text on my Garmin nuvi 2597LMT. I have since read in earlier postings about the various known ways of achieving line breaks. I want to manually try to create line breaks before I move on and learn EPE. I have created and uploaded otherwise working custom POIs files to my unit but I can't seem to achieve line breaks.
I've done this before, but for some reason it's not working.
I'm going to Paris and taking the garmin edge 810 with. I want a list of some attractions stored in the gps so I can navigate easily to.
For some reason, I can't get the excel file to upload via poi loader into the garmin.... It says the file format isn't valid, even though it's csv deliminated...
