Using Wikipedia Content?

I did a site search on 'Wikipedia' and didn't find a direct answer to this, so if it already exists please direct me to the thread. This came up in a round-about way in another more technical discussion.

What's the POI Factory's policy on using Wikipedia content in a POI? Such as in the descriptive text or as an attached/embedded photo or illustration in a POI

It's about the Line- If a line can be drawn between the powers granted and the rights retained, it would seem to be the same thing, whether the latter be secured by declaring that they shall not be abridged, or that the former shall not be extended.

Is there a character limit in the description/comment portion of a CSV POI?

I've developed some CSV POIs using four excel columns. I've been adding address and other description in the fourth column. At first, I just added a description and my Nuvi would display all the text. Then I got fancy and started using <*br*> and <*b*> coding. Now, my Nuvi cuts off the length of the description to only about the first 100 characters.

Need utility to convert U.S. address into efficient/complete U.S. address

The source information for some POIs I've developed had incomplete or inefficient address. I'm looking for a utiltity to convert a batch set of addresses such as
"246 Main, Fairlee, vt"
"3711 Travis Street, Houston, Texas 77002"

into the more efficient/complete addresses such as

"246 Main St, Fairlee, VT 05045"
"3711 Travis St, Houston, TX 77002"

Custom POI not showing on maps above zoom level 200ft.

Is there anyway to get all of my custom POIs to show on the map? All I can see is the one I've selected to either Go To, or to Map. The other ones only show up when I am zoomed in to 200 ft. or tighter.

Can I create a POI file from a MapSource .gdb file?

To paraphrase the words of another member here: 'Forgive me for being completely retarded, but...'

I have a list of about 300 members of a (motorcycle) riding club, saved as waypoints in a .gdb file. I'd like to turn these into a POI file, to be distributed to said club members. Can this be done, and if so, how?

Hello everyone. I'm fairly new to this site. I've been using my Garmin Nuvi 350 for a while now, but I'm ready to take it to the next level with custom POIs smile

Extra_POI_Editor on nuvi 1690 - can't read favorites from device

The nuvi 1690 stores the Current.gpx file in the :\GPX\Current.gpx file, but EPE says it can't read it, and it should be in the :\Garmin\GPX\Current.gpx file. Is there a way to configure EPE to look in another folder?

Nuvi 755T - Custom POI Question

I haven't made a custom POI in a long time.
I got a Nuvi to replace my StreetPilot c330.

My custom POI's no longer display address info.

I am using Excel and put everything in this 4 column format.

Long Lat Name Address
-90.316029 38.613488 Acero 7266 Manchester Rd., St. Louis, MO 63143

(I do not use the column labels in the .csv)
I then save it as a .csv

Changing info in POI files

I re-vamped and edited some POI's in the "cc's coffeehouse" file I downloaded. I went to CC's website to get my info. How do I upload an edited POI file already in your database?

Description Difference

Ihave several POI TourGuides. On some them the initial screen shows in the description "Alert Information 10 miles" in others this doesn't exist, yet the work. Anyone know hod the difference comes about? I have screenshots.

Thanks

Transfer custom poi info FROM zumo TO mapsource

Thanks in advance for helping a newb! I have searched but can't find an answer to the following question:

Having just downloaded a custom poi list re the Blue Ridge Pkwy is there a way to import that info into my mapsource program so I can build custom routes using the poi data while working on my desktop?

Again, many thanks.

I'm new here. Help! (Tuesday Morning stores)

I just got a Garmin last month. In a few weeks, I'll be moving (taking a week to drive) from Salt Lake City, UT to Hollywood, FL. I think the POI thing is the coolest thing I've ever seen!

I really want to create a POI for one of my favorite stores, Tuesday Morning. I have no idea how to do this. Is there a tutorial somewhere that I can read to make one?

Questions regarding poi.gpi file on your Garmin

If I download or create custom POIs and store them in a folder on my computer, when I load them into my Garmin using POILoader, it is my understanding that they all get stored together, no matter how many, into one file called poi.gpi, that can be found in my POI folder on my Garmin. If that is true, then I have a few questions about storing multiple custom poi groups:

How do you use the Custom Rest Stop Custum POIs

I downloaded the combined Reststop custom Pois that were on the website and loaded them into my Garmin with the POI loader. I saw them in my EXTRAS on my GPS. Do these POIS show up automatically along the routes, or do you have to select them as VIAs like regular POIs? I am hoping they show up automatically along the routes -but is there anything special you do to get that to happen?

POI help - distance

Ok I am working on a Custom POI.
I have loaded the Speed camera files from here and I see you can set the distance for the alert to go off.
I figured 1300 FT was good for those.

Now my question is. If you was setting POI for the alert such as stores, How far do you set these so they do not alert you over n over until you pass them.

1 10 ... 16 17 18 19
21 22 23 24 ... 30 40 67
