I have been off the site for a while, but came back today to do some updates that I have been putting off. I was pleasantly surprised to find Maintainer Tools which made most of my updates very simple. However I noticed that when I updated this way the Last Updated date doesn't change on the POI download page. It does change in my list of maintained files on My Account page.
I know how to use Excel and edit fields so that shouldn't be a problem. or should i use a software editor which one, maybe free?
Just curious. Maybe Miss POI will have to answer this. Why, when you look at the RECEBT FILES, all csv giles show No. of locations, nut gpx files don't. I know you can see the file size and that gives you some clue. Maybe, on gpx files, you could list the No. of entries in the description. I probably wouldn't want to download a file with 10 or so entries, whereas, with several hundred, I would.
I have a Garmin 7xx series device. And a POI (.GPI) file with hundreds of locations in multiple cities and countries.
Resort Parks International & Enjoy America. I find Google search results for these (and even reference to "updating") but can't find the thread here in the factory, or in POI list. Do these exist and is there still interest? I am willing to do some data input with others.
I am a new user but the custom POI's look interesting. Is is possible to extract POI's from the Garmin POI database to create a custom POI file with proximity alerts? Example, create a custom POI with a specific restaurant name, i.e. McDonalds, that will alert you when you are within a mile of any McDonalds restaurant.
Ahead of time, thanks for everyone's help. I have spent the past two days reading through all the posts and still have not been able to get my question answered. I understand how to create a custom POI, add wav file for sound and add an icon and load it on my device. I understand all that. I have a Nuvi 265T which I got a month ago, so I am still pretty new with using it.
Is it possible to add additional POI's after the first one is added with the POI Loader? It seems like I have to start over each time. I have sub-categories a batch file would not work. Am I missing something? Thanks!
I have downloaded POI files for two nearby grocery store chains. I also have a small "personal poi" file with lists of friends homes, and places I commonly go.
I just got a TomTom XL 335TM and noticed that the built in POIs have a details page that shows addresses and other information like Garmin units.
I installed an alert 50 feet from my house.
"We are just about home......I hope you enjoyed the trip"
My wife likes it, it does add a nice touch.
The Walmart in Maplewood Mo. is being re-constructed to be a SuperWalmart. This will be effective in July 2010.
Well, today is free "English Muffin Melt" day at Los Angeles area Subways (see below). I was looking for the Subway POI that covers California, but only found
We need more Subway POI.
There are 32781 Subway Restaurants In 91 Countries.
The Subway Locator only gives five restaurants at a time.
If I can't actually go to the place, I use GOOGLE EARTH for the GPS coordinates.
What do you use?
To create the POI file (or convert a POI file to GPX or CSV), I use POI Edit.
I find both of these programs very good. What programs do you all use?
I had this perception that as I travel, I can capture points of interest as I go. It's a nice feature, press the "Where Am I" icon and boom, there you have it. Latitude and Longitude, a nearby address, nearest cross streets.
Moreover, I can save the spot, and name it as I wish, in My Favorites.
So here's my question.
How do I harvest that information?
Just want to encourage anyone who feels capable to create a youtube video on using this site and loading info onto our GPS devices. I've been searching and can't find a tutorial. I know it's all really simple to those who have done it, but for the technically challenged...me, not so much.
I have tried several times to add the POI to my Garmin c550 without success. I know this maybe an old question but I need help.
Having made a few poi files now, I find that although I obviously want to get things done as quickly as possible, I usually can't help but want to try and make every poi entry as accurate as possible.
Ok, My gps in attached to my laptop, I downloaded the poi loader (garin nuvi 780) and the poi file for campgrounds, but when I select the directory where file can be found (download) I get "there are no data files in that directory". When I go to downloads and try to open that file I can't because I don't have MS Word (or Works).
