Creating POI files

 

POIs to Mapsource, Converting CSV to GPX - Summary

This is a report on my trials of using several of the various methods discussed on POI-Factory to get POIs into Mapsource. I wanted both the name and comments to show in Mapsource.

POI data base, Scat Machines?

All of you river runners out there. I wonder if we could build a data base for scat machines. I am not sure where to go to find out their locations. Any suggestions?

POI's

I have a Garmin 260, how do I turn the POI's on?

POI's with Mapsource

When I create a POI with mapsource, save it as a gpx, load it with the poi loader, all goes well except for, anything I have in the comments comes up twice when I look at it on the GPS. Anyone know why this happens?

Making POIs that are direction-sensitive

I want to create a POI that alerts to a speed zone on I-20 East, which I have managed to do. However, when I travel through the same area on I-20 WEST, the proximity alarm goes off.

Is there a way to make the POI recognize East vs. West on the interstate?

Ways to publish supplemental description .doc file

I've created and (Miss POI kindly published) a .gpx file covering POIs we developed for our upcoming trip to O'ahu. But as part of that effort we also created a .doc file actually describing those POIs in some detail. And for most we were able to find and include links to sites having abundant detail.

Loading POI's into MapSource via POI Loader

I am trying to load POI files into MapSource using Garmins latest POI loader.When I start the POILoader, I select the option for MapSource and then it asks for a .gpi file name I want to use. MapSource uses a.gdb format. I have tried it loading .csv files and .gpx files. It says points are loaded, but it is loading them into the .gpi file I have named.

Finding the right location

With different sites to find latitude and longitude I find that they are hardly ever the same. I enter an address to get the location and get different results. So which one is the most accurate? Then sometimes a couple of the sites will tell me failed to return a result. I usually go to google, geocoder, ibegin, terraserver or yahoo.

thanks

ASUS R300 has *.PIO files by state and for Canada but how do I update them?

I have an ASUS R300, which uses IGO and Tele-Atlas files and data [I believe]. The *.POI files are by state and there is also one for Canada as a whole. There is a mini file for Puerto Rico too. Anyway, since there are lots of missing POT that I want to add, HOW do I do that?

Unable to remove custom POI file

Last night I installed the POI application from Garmin. I then went crazy downloading every Michigan POI file from this sight, then loading them on my Nuvi 200. Then I looked up hospitals on my device, and noticed some where listed twice, and in some cases, identitcal hospitals have different distances of about .2. I then ran the "remove added custom POI from device" program.

Sorting all 48 States by State

Just a suggestion. If a POI file contains all 48 (50) states, I know sometimes it is not possible, or easy to sort it by state, depending on how the data was built or formatted. When I download such a file, I only want to load MO and IL, as I have a C330, and my storage capacity is limited. When I take a trip, I will load the appropriate states.

Can POIs only be accessed in their own folders?

I am new to the GPS world, having just purchased a Nuvi 260W. Is it not possible to load, say, a McDonald's POI file so that when you search Fast Food, all those locations in the custom POI also appear? In other words, do custom POIs appear in any of the pre-existing folders (Food, Recreation, etc.), or are they only accessible via the Custom POI folder?

Making loaded POI's appear on map.

Hi,
I've installled a few POI's on my new Garmin Nuvi 660. I know they are installed, as they appear in my "Extras" folder inside my "Custom POI's. My question is, why don't they appear on my map? A couple are only a few miles from my home and they do not show up. Do I need to save each one as a favorite to see them on my map?
Thank you.
