my POI file after I uploaded it to the POI Factory. I noticed some errors and wanted to edit them but have been unable to find my file on the POI Factory. It has not been published as yet (takes 1 or 2 days) so when it is that is when I can edit it, is that correct? This is my first attempt in creating a POI file. Thanks for your comments,
There doesn't seem to be a standard on how the gps coordinates are given when i consult the guides and internet
36° 5' N 115° 10' W
N42 09.762 W78 17.779
How do i convert to the standard
-xx.xxxxx,xx.xxxx that i use to create my POI files
Is there a software that can help me
I've been trying to go to the Turboccc page and Trend Micro is warning me that the page might try to transmit malicious software. Is anyone else getting this warning? Has there been an issue with their site or software?

I have been writing CSV files using comma's. Well with the help of you people I found out that was wrong. So I went in to Excel and found where I can replace all of the comma's with semi colons or something else.
Looks like most if not all of the Home Depot csv files give errors. Looks like too many LFs.
http://www.poi-factory.com/node/12306 this is Home Depot USA.csv
That file is just a mess because it is formatted wrong. I have sent a message over to the file manager to see if he would like to fix this himself or transfer the project to another member.
This may be of interest to some. I haven't tried it yet, just ran across it while surfing. It looks like you can also run it as a portable app.
Hi all.. I have a Nuvi 1300 and I donloaded a few POI files into my Nuvi via the Poi Loader.. They show up when I go to extras, but I would like them to show up on my main map view while driving. When I touch my main map view and it changes the view they show up there as grey dots..
as of January 14, 2011
Changes made from version 2.5.4 to 2.6.0:
* Added ability to specify a custom POI file's name
* Added ability to handle swapped lat and lon values in CSV files
* Fixed issue with multi-line CSV files not being read correctly
* Fixed issue with extended ASCII characters in CSV files
I drive cross country almost every year (last year it was NY -> NM -> ID and back) and the custom POIs are gonna make the next trip even better than it usually is!!
One of the POIs I downloaded was the Olive Garden and I noticed that my local location isn't included so I expect that there are others missing
One thing that I value greatly besides respect & committment to my family & friends is my service to my community. Besides being a prifessional firefighter in the GREAT City Of New York, I also volunteer much of my free time to my hometown in one of the suburbs of Long Island as a Volunteer Firefighter.
I have a custom POI file that I installed on the SD card.
The original .csv file contains 1,627 locations.
When I look at the installed file on my 265w it shows 52 closest locations only. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?
I created a POI file using MapSource then converted to a csv file. I tried to use it on my Garmin but will not navigate to the POI. Shows the POI but will not allow me to "GO"
Does anyone know where i can get a list of street names and their posted speed limit? I have a nuvi 1300 and it does not have the speed limit indicator so I would to create a POI based on the streets and thier posted speed limit.
If I wanted to include a two mile proximity alert for all rest areas, how should I rename the above file?
I own a Garmin 1350t and began the search/research to generate poi's into folders/categories
Posing a question here was somewhat helpful but for me did not solve the poi problem.
POI’s On A Memory Card.
I opted to create several (6) gpi POI’s on my Garmin Nuvi 260 mini SD card rather than one huge single file. It is easier for me to work with and upgrade the files that way.
I own a Garmin 1350T gps and this coming spring I am planing a trip to Chicago and Wisconsin to view some of the homes of the architect Frank Lloyd Wright
I found on this site the work of mclassing http://www.poi-factory.com/node/27915 in which he put EVERY one of the architects structures in a csv form
I tried loading the new one, and can't get past the shlwapi.dll
at about 89% Please email me so I can send you the install logs.
I have a couple of gpi files for over night dry camping with an RV on the Alaskan Hwy that I have made for my Garmin. They work well.
Can a gpi format be uploaded to this site or only gpx and csv formats?
With gpi no need for anyone to have to use POI factory but rather just move the gpi file over to their Garmin, POi directory.
I may have deleted the POI file in the Garmin POI folder. the folder indicates empty. When I try to open Extra folder on Nuvi 660 screen, no POI menu appears. When updating the POI Loader indicates update complete. Reinstalling the latest software using WebUpDater does not return a POI file to the folder. How can I fix this mistake?
