In working on the Panhandle section of the Florida Birding Trail guide file, I have been putting much of the text from the printed guide in the description section. This is sometimes quite a bit of information on trails, species, and other information.
I just spent quite a bit of time plotting out a route for a road trip on Bing (formerly Live.com) Maps.
After a lot of fooling around with different methods to get those waypoints onto my laptop where I could edit them to my liking, I discovered that Bing Maps now has an option to export a Collection directly to a GPX file.
This cuts out a bunch of hacking for me.
For those now working on or may be working on POI files in the future, I believe I may have discovered how to insert line breaks (dependably). It is the insertion of a simple “pipe”, “|” (uppercase backslash) character wherever a line break is desired for better display clarity.
Hello. I'm new to this list. Can someone tell me what the difference is between a POI and a Waypoint? Is a Waypoint a type of POI? Is a route with a series of waypoints from a TOPO map just a series of POI's?
Forgive me for the novice question... I'm just starting to look at creating POIs.
I'm curious in learning whether it's possible, or what work-arounds are possible, for POIs that change on a daily basis. Is it possible to load a week's worth of POIs at a time and only the ones active for Monday show on that date, then disappear on Tuesday?
Any insight is appreciated, thanks in advance!
In working on the Panhandle section guide it is possible to copy/paste the descriptions from the PDF guide to the Florida Birding Trail and put it into the comments section. Is it appropriate to do this?

I've updated the CSV Splitter app to include a Search by Radius function.
1) Select a file, or for this function you can select as many files as you want and have it merge them all into one CSV file.
2) Choose an output file name
3) Enter a Latitude and Longitude to search around.
Has anyone tried to convert the ov2 to gsp for the redlight cameras to work on the Geosat 5? It can't recognize the file as redlight. does it have to have a spcial name to make it work.? as redligh.gsp?
or is there something else involved.
I have tried to get or listen to POI sound files from site but having no response from site?? Is your links or server having issues
I downloaded POI Speed Camera files, installed through Garmin POI loader, Installed ok except the Approaching Warning Alert is so low it is barely audible? I have volume up all the way and all alert settings on? Any Suggestions? Thanks

I've been trying for days to get the POI Loader for Garmin to load. Once I download, I click yes to run the program and at exit, I click on the "open POI" and done, and it just doesn't come up.
Then I go into my Garmin Nuvi 765 (which is hooked up to the computer) and I can see all the poi files that I dragged and dropped into the folder, but when I restart my garmin, they're not there..
When using GPS Visualizer for getting multiple GPS coordinates, which map source provides the better information as the source, Google or Yahoo? If you use both sources on different runs with the same data, they often give different coordinates.
I have been working on a GPX file listing the locations of all of the historical signs in the state of Ohio. I wrote the file for my own use and it has taken me about 6 weeks to get it to this point. I've decided that I can't finish the project, the info just isn't available on the Internet. My current file has around 1500 entries that appear to have the correct coordinates and other info.
Forgive me if this has been asked and answered many times before. Perhaps a moderator could move it to the right place.
I understand that the sound and POI files have to have the exact same spelling. Is that also true for the .BMP file? Thanks.
With the talk of complicated ways to split CSV files into states, I decided to write a quick app to do it all pretty quickly:
I did this over lunch break, and there's not much in the way of error checking and beautiful interface, but it worked really well with the Home Depot .CSV file.
Hello Miss POI and Everyone.
Would it be a good idea if everyone who accept to share their POI files on this site opt for and conform to a certain "standard" as far as the syntax is concern? Many of the files I have downloaded have to be reworked because proper syntax has not been observed by the publisher.
Is it possible to create timed proximity alerts?
Couple of applications:
Warn about school zones only when they are in effect.
Provide an alert when you are close to a Sonic Drive in between 2 and 4 local time (happy hour 1/2 price drinks )
I'm sure there are other applications.
I'm spending a week in New York in June and am trying to add a list of 81 possible locations into my nuvi 205. Using turboccc's marvelous Extra_POI_Editor, the creation went without a hitch. But, when I go to upload them into the nuvi, only about half of them make it in.
