I have a Magellen 3225. I downloaded the RLC (saved as RLC 05 20 2009). I opened the Editor, selected "all files" & found RLC, selected line 1, used the semi-comma (default) seperator. At "finish" I receive "fields name, lat & long are manditory for import". All of my downloaded POI's have the same problem. What did I do wrong? THX 4 Help!
Hey folks - when my wife and I drive across country, we usually drive overnight. That means I end up constantly seeking on the AM dial for continuous reception of Coast-to-Coast AM.
Can anybody help guide me as to how I might make a POI file to include stations that carry the show? I imagine I can find a station list on their website, but I'm lost as to how to continue from there.
I just uploaded the complete US Corp POI for Circle K Stores, Inc. with 2942 locations in the file.
First shot at this.
I can (and most likely will) break them up into States when I get a chance.
I've got a icon to go with it but didn't see how I could associate the icon with the POI posting.
I must be really dense. I keep reading how you can put .csv/.gpx files in subdirectories on your hard drive so that you can create sub-categories that show up in your "Extras" folder. When I run Garmin's POI loader though, it won't accept it. It will only take a directory with something in it. For example, I have:
c:\Garmin\Custom POI\Ham Radio\2M Repeaters\2M Repeaters.csv
Ok. I've been reading up on the TourGuide and proximities and came upon a few questions.
I'm using the Extra-POI-Editor, and set a proximity on a few POI Files and some work and some don't.
For example - The Rest Stop Combined POI. I set to a 1.5 mile proximity and it alerts when it's in range, BUT it keeps alerting every 5 seconds until I'm past the entrance of the rest area.
In the course of my employment I travel to county courthouses throughout Wisconsin, so I've created a POI listing all 72 counties (Lon/Lat, Name, Address)... no problems. The "custom" POI loads without error, BUT for some reason I'm only seeing 52 counties (4 POI per screen / 13 screens - down arrows) vs. 72 (4 POI per screen / 18 screens - down arrows).... Being new to this process I'm stumped.
I’ve seen some poi’s (csv format) are using eol (end of line) characters that are invisible. I’ve used copy and paste before, what I’m trying to find out, does anyone know how to put them in from the keyboard?
Does anyone have an easy way to create a POI of garage sales? I have seen the Garmin POI maker at http://www.cthreepo.com/poi/ It seems simple and straight forward enough, but was wondering if anybody has any experience? I have a 200w and it can't route, but I could load to favorites maybe and just go to each one individually.
I have opened a few different .csv files and have seen different formats.
Is there a standard to follow or some info on how many columns and info for each ?
Started yesterday for the first time on new Garmin...
I took the Starbucks POI and looked for my local store. It didnt exist so I went into Google Earth and Map Source to get the numbers. Put it into the sheet like the others and it shows up in the next town 32 miles away... can someone point me in the right direction?
I created a .csv POI file and in the 4th column I included information about each location. I wanted to include a history of each location, but it seems I was a bit too wordy on some of them. When I load them into my gps it only includes the history in the more section to a certain point where it is cut off.
I it possible to take 2 .csv files and open them with Excel and combine the 2 files into one and still upload and be functional on a Nuvi 680?
For instance, I'd like to combine the national parks POI file with the national monuments POI file.
Maybe a dumb question, but I am new to custom POI's even though I've had my Nuvi for almost 2 years now.
Thanks all...wonderful website!!
I made my 1st POI using information from Poi-Factory. It is the public lifts from a city map of Monaco. I am going to Monaco this Fall and will make any corrections needed after I return.
My question is: After uploading the GPX file how do I find it to make sure it came through ok?
I'm trying to do rest areas. Actually starting over because it didn't work the first time. (The alert never went off.) I downloaded again Rest Areas csv, bmp and Mp3 and renamed them Rest Areas.csv, Rest Areas.bmp and Rest Areas.mp3. Do I have to set my own alert. Is there one already set for it like the red light cameras.
Hi. I just today got my new Nuvi 205 and downloaded the POI Loader software. Then, I selected several of the POI files on this website to try it out on. I put them all in a folder and the POI Loader software said I successfully transferred the files over to my GPS. BUT, the new POIs are NOT showing up on my GPS!!
This page at Microsoft has a tutorial how to have excel conditional format any item in a column that is a duplicate of another item in the same column.
I've used this on other excel projects before and now using this on the Longitude or Latitude column on some of my POI projects is really saving me a lot of time.
I wrote a program to search Switchboard.com and pull Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Latitude, and Longitude for POIs. It is available at:
it's called SwitchMiner_042409.zip
I tried to post a self-extracting EXE, but Google Sites wouldn't let me so I had to Zip it up.
1) Set the filename for the results (cvs.txt for instance)
I have a problem with my speed camera alert on my GMXT 5.00.40. I tried to customized them by ading in the folder where i have my .csv file, a .bmp and .mp3 fle with the same name (the picture and sound are downloaded from this site). I have load them with POI Loader on my device. Until here everything OK, but when i pass a camera the only alert is a red or grey rectangle with biping sound alert.
Has anybody ever seen online maps, (Google, Mapquest, etc.) that have mile markers on them. Or that have Exit Numbers, for that matter. For instance, if I know that Exit 24A is at Mile Marker 149, how would I find that on a map?
This may have been answered in the past but I couldn't find a reference or picked the wrong keywords to search by.
I have a list of addresses. I want to input them all at once and retrieve longitude and latitude for each. I know how to get them one-by-one, but that would take forever.
