Creating POI files

 

"Long Distance" proximity alerts?

Is there a solution to this, or is it just too weird?
Let's say I have a POI list of campgrounds or rest areas in the states that I am going to visit on a trip.
Is there a way to set alerts so that I am notified when I am within *miles* of the POI? Let's say, 50 miles? (I want to start planning my stop before I am there).
If so, how would one go about it?

Thanks,

POIs Loaded vs. Displayed? (Garmin Zumo 660 and BaseCamp)

I have loaded several POI files, the latest has 184 entries. I wanted to verify that they were all there.

Q1: How many can I see on the GPS? (zumo 660)

Updating

I'm new at this could someone tell me how to update POI's like Red Light Cameras that is already loaded in my Garmin. Do I have to delete the file then load a new one?

POI Loader and Wav files

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"

Garmin content toolkit

Hi again.
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. smile

best regards Jocke

Flying J POI

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?

Creating a New POI - 100 Mile SC BBQ

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.

Updating Files

Does anybody other than me think most the files are long overdue for updating!

EPE for Batch Geocoding

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.

Wishful Thinking Regarding Websites

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!

Best process to keep current?

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.

How to get address / comment avoir les adresse

FRANCAIS AU BAS**

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!

Thank you

Icon for Garmin 3597

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.

BMP Icon Difficulties

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.

Waypoint vs POI - I don't want to navigate to my POI

Newbie here,...
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,...

Custom POIs & Elevation Data

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.

Custom POIs & Descriptive Data

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?
