Creating POI files

 

What States to Make a Cemetery POI file for,

I'm snowbound for at least several days,and It's still going to be a long winter, and was wondering, if I were to create a new Cemetery POI file, what state would everybody want? Given that I already do MO, OH, IL, IA and KS.

EPE

If you are geocoding with EPE I found a quirk. On address with interstate highways you can't use Interstate Highway or IH. I will bring back irrelevant. It's got to be I-30 as an example. This isn't true with GPS visualizer.

nuvi 2595 lmt (unable to convert .wav)

Been reading all posts for days. Have done setup over and over, still get "unable to convert Redlight-Cameras.wav". So no sound file is downloaded. I did convert the mp3 file to wav file 1st using GoldWave program. Any suggestions.

Learned My Lesson

I was working on a new file using EPE and everything was going fine until I was probably on my 50th entry when after hitting the "Geocoding" button it didn't produce a result, and instead got an error message that says "The requested search did not return any relevant result." So I just used Google maps to get the coordinates and copied the results on the latitude and longitude fields on EPE, the

Too many columns?

When I click "check for problems" for my POI file that I'm maintaining, I get entries that are flagged for "too many columns".

Basically it looks like since I've put some notes in the Description box, which amounts to a fourth column, I'm getting this "problem".

POI help 4 newbie (how to get the POIs from POI factory to my computer)

Newbie here, need help with POIs. I have created a file on my computer to move the POIs into, but for some reason (perhaps old age) I can not figure out how to get the POIs from POI factory to my computer.. what am I doing wrong, or not doing.

OK, newbie question alert!!

Making changes in POI csv files

I am trying to make changes in existing POI files to suit my needs (and I plan to upload when I do it right). So far, when I load them in my Nuvi 205, they either won't load or only load an item or two. Granted I'm new at this.... Is there a tutorial showing how to take an existing file (example:the POI showing a majority of the AM radio stations in the U.S.).

POI Editor

Is anyone having trouble with the POI Editor from turbo the geo coding button no longer works I have to enter the cooridnates manually, does anyone have a fix for this.

Need an icon created

Note user I'm putting this topic in the right forum.

I regularly do motorcycle rides in support of Wounded Warriors. The grand tour is The Tour of Honor, www.tourofhonor.com.

I need an icon create to go with the locations. A simple TOH would be ok but a better one using the Tour of Honor wheel would be outstanding.

I have no artistic ability and less computer graphic skills.

poi file verifier

Where, if possible, can I download a copy of poi file verifier? I had some computer problems and lost mine. None of the links on the forum work.

Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

Extra POI Editor

Is it possible to delete multiple locations in Extra POI Editor? I can only seem to select one at a time and delete.

Creating POI File

When trying to split the large Walmart - Sams cvs, all seems to go well except when selecting a store site, the site appears on the map but I don't get the "GO" or "Save" message.

Any thoughts what I'm doing wrong?

TourGuides on Nuvi 40LM

I've been trying to use TourGuide POIs on my Garmin Nuvi 40LM and I haven't been able to get them to work. I've read a lot of posts and have plenty of things to check out but, before I drive myself crazy, can anyone tell me if TourGuides even work on the 40LM? I need it doesn't support MP3s but, can I use TourGuides if I convert to WAVs? Or should I just give up?

Thanks in advance. confused

EPE Acting Up

Opening EPE and then clicking "Add New POI" and entering the necessary information on the "Address" field, when I hit "Geocoding", a popup message would say "The requested search did not return any relevant result". Huh? I'm not doing a search.

gpsbabel giving awkwardness

I run the below.

gpsbabel -i csv -f "McDonalds.csv" -o garmin_gpi,bitmap="McDonalds.bmp",category="McDonalds" -F "McDonalds.gpi"

McDonalds will show up as a custom poi on the device the closest location is 4500 plus miles away and when you click something to navigate to the location the garmin says "Cannot calculate route"

Conversion confusion

Can anyone explain when I download a POI file from here, whether it's a GPX or OV2, once I convert it to CSV using this site

http://www.gps-data-team.com/convert.php

often times the CSV file is then corrupted? For example, some GPS locations may be omitted or the text description is changed/omitted.
