I have a bunch of Custom POI files on a SD card on my 1490T. Is there a way to attach an image file to a custom POI file? I can do it in My Favorites by clicking the additional info and clicking the Edit function to attach a photo but that feature is not available in the list of Custom POI files.
Is there some way to list POIs by location rather than by subject?
For instance, suppose that I'm visiting a new area and want to put in all the POIs in the vicinity so that I can pull up a restaurant, nightlife or museum nearby.
Once upon a time I used to have the custom wav file playing right after a double-tone ring alerting me to a redlight camera but it has not done it for a while. Any clues on how I can set it up like that rather then just having the wav file play?

I have had a 1450 for almost two years and am just now starting to try to put things on it. Its overwhelming. This coming spring I'm going to Hawaii. I have all my POIs and such in my 2010 Streets&Trips. How do I transfer them to my Garmin? I do have Base Camp installed on my computer but do not know how to transfer. Or change extensions if needed. I tried to read the FAQs but nothing specific.
When I looked at the FAQ for creating a POI file, I got a great deal of technical information about the detailed specifications buried within the file. That's not what I want to know.
Let's assume I want to upload a file to POI Factory. Let's assume that all of the points are contained within a single list within Garmin's Basecamp.
What software do you use to create POI files?
Morning people of the GPS world. I am a new member and a relatively new GPS owner/User. I would like to create some new POI's for the area that I live in so others like you could see them or find them if you come to this area. Being NEW means that currently I do not know how to do this task and would like to have a litle assistance in doing my first one.
Is there a GPL'd POI Editor for Ubuntu Linux... I like Extra POI Editor on Windows, but I was wondering if there is anything available for Linux.
ExcelFlip is a pair of Excel macros that use modified Copy and Paste keyboard shortcuts to "flip" back and forth between
- a pair of [lon,lat] coordinate values in two adjacent Excel cells, and
- a pair of comma-separated [lat,lon] values on the Windows clipboard.
Folks who maintain their POI files in Excel may find it useful when copying coordinates to and from Google Maps.
ClipFlip.exe is a Windows utility that looks for a pair of coordinates (in decimal degrees) on the Windows clipboard and "flips" the order of the coordinates. Folks who maintain their CSV files in Notepad may find it useful when copying coordinates to and from Google Maps.

I have just recently got a new Garmin. My last one was about 8 - 9 years old and never put any POI's on it myself. I want to give it a shot and try to put some on my new 3790llmt. I went to the POI page and downloaded a bunch into my computer. Now I have the task of trying to figure out how - so I am going to read all that I can.
I would like to create a Redlight and Speedcamera file on my PC and use the Garmin POI Loader to transfer the collected data to my nuvi 3790.
There are several sources from where this data is available for download : POI Factory, GPS Data Team, POI Plaza, Trappster, SCDB, Hpatlik and others.
I would like knowabout city parks that have camping areas.
Is it possible to change other file formats to CSV ? AS I wouod like to use the Flying J/Pilot POI in my
If so how ? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm trying to upload the POI Factory red-light cameras file to my Volvo navigation system. Unfortunately, it only reads .idx format files. Does anyone know how to convert the POI factory's .csv format to the .idx format or have any idea of another way to get this to work with the Volvo system.
I am trying to create a csv file with southeast dragstrip
locations. Hope i didnt miss a listing already in process
or already completed.Let me know if this is something that might be desired.
When I load my POI files I choose custom so I can change the distance alerts begin, how can I make these changes permanent. Now everytime I load new/updated files I have to go through each and every one and make the changes all over again via the POI loader.
Hi everyone just watched a video on YouTube on how to create POIs from Google Earth. Very informative and easy to follow…..just what I needed
You will also need kml to cvs converter, Note you will need java to run this program
Hope this helps
