FAQ: Creating POI Files
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.

I don't know if this has been posted before, but is anyone familiar with these web sites or application? Seems to be a good addition to creating gpx files?
There is a new Camping World store that can be added to the existing POI file.

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.
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).
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.
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.
When converting a .gpx file that is generated by Streets and Trips 2013 to a .csv file, EPE does not pick up any route points that are not pushpins (waypoints). Route points created by altering a route by click-and-drag or by adding to a route a POI that is native to Streets and Trips don't appear when EPE opens the .gpx. And, of course then, they are not in the saved .csv file.
How about a poi for hunted places i was just in Savannah and st augustine that would come in handy I dont know how to make a poi if some makes one please let me know
Hi, i have a small problem with an Kml file that i build in Google My Maps.
The map contain poi´s from sevaral countries, i didnt bother to tag the places with country when i build the map, now i want to fix that.
My wife and I take a lot of day trips, and have come across some out-of-the-way little general stores. Would be nice to have a POI File of quaint General Stores, like taking a step back in time, type of stores. I have a starter list of 16 in MO, for someone. I am way too busy and committed to take on such a project, but perhaps one of our members might want to pitch in.
Need a little help. Finally decided to put some custom POIs into my Garmin 1490.
Downloaded the PoiLoader and ran it.
I had already downloaded the Walmart and Rest Area POIs.
I downloaded both the mp3s and bmps for both POIs.
I renamed all the files thus: Walmart_redlight.csv and bmp and mp3 (meaning all files named as for their use).
My new nuvi 65 LMT,I don't have MP3 on it. Can I copy MP3 from
my Nuvi 660 and put it on the nuvi 65 LMT? I would like to hear red like camera ahead instead of bing bing bing.
I can't do it. The POI file is in my download folder but I can't remember how to get it to my Garmin. I have tried several ways. I am a newbie.
I just installed extra poi editor, but when i started the program, all i got was a blank white screen. what did i do wrong? appreciate any hellp i get. thanks
Have you seen the shell.com store locator ?
You can download all the Shell gas stations by country in a few different file formats inducing Garmin and TomTom
The store locator can be accessed at
And these two direct links are for Canadian and US Shell locations in Garmin format.
I use EPE to maintain a POI file and it works well. Now I wish to share my data with someone else to use on a web site. The problem is that all the file "save as" formats seem to not do as I want. I would like a file that can be opened with Microsoft Excel. The 2 Excel file options discard some of the data I want to keep. The best one is a Garmin .cvs file format.
