I have a new Garmin nuvi 2597LMT and I'm rather new to creating custom POI files but I have successfully done so complete with my own icons and sound. Is it possible for elevation data to display on my unit? I have "mountain peaks and summits" and "county high points" POI csv files with available elevation data but I can't determine if this is possible and, if so, how to incorporate it.
Many, if not most, custom POI csv files on this website have a fourth column of descriptive text like address, city, state & telephone number in addition to the name label of the POI. When, where & how is that information imported into the gps unit? Are all Garmin gps units capable of displaying/utilizing that fourth column of data?
I recently posted a query about creating line breaks in displayed text on my Garmin nuvi 2597LMT. I have since read in earlier postings about the various known ways of achieving line breaks. I want to manually try to create line breaks before I move on and learn EPE. I have created and uploaded otherwise working custom POIs files to my unit but I can't seem to achieve line breaks.
I've done this before, but for some reason it's not working.
I'm going to Paris and taking the garmin edge 810 with. I want a list of some attractions stored in the gps so I can navigate easily to.
For some reason, I can't get the excel file to upload via poi loader into the garmin.... It says the file format isn't valid, even though it's csv deliminated...
I'm snowbound for at least several days,and It's still going to be a long winter, and was wondering, if I were to create a new Cemetery POI file, what state would everybody want? Given that I already do MO, OH, IL, IA and KS.
If you are geocoding with EPE I found a quirk. On address with interstate highways you can't use Interstate Highway or IH. I will bring back irrelevant. It's got to be I-30 as an example. This isn't true with GPS visualizer.
It's finally here!
Click anywhere on the #newGoogleMaps to get the geographic coordinates of a place.
Been reading all posts for days. Have done setup over and over, still get "unable to convert Redlight-Cameras.wav". So no sound file is downloaded. I did convert the mp3 file to wav file 1st using GoldWave program. Any suggestions.
I was working on a new file using EPE and everything was going fine until I was probably on my 50th entry when after hitting the "Geocoding" button it didn't produce a result, and instead got an error message that says "The requested search did not return any relevant result." So I just used Google maps to get the coordinates and copied the results on the latitude and longitude fields on EPE, the
When I click "check for problems" for my POI file that I'm maintaining, I get entries that are flagged for "too many columns".
Basically it looks like since I've put some notes in the Description box, which amounts to a fourth column, I'm getting this "problem".
Newbie here, need help with POIs. I have created a file on my computer to move the POIs into, but for some reason (perhaps old age) I can not figure out how to get the POIs from POI factory to my computer.. what am I doing wrong, or not doing.
OK, newbie question alert!!
I just started using Extra POI editor and so far it looks really great. I've manged to get just about everything to work the way I want it... except...
I am trying to make changes in existing POI files to suit my needs (and I plan to upload when I do it right). So far, when I load them in my Nuvi 205, they either won't load or only load an item or two. Granted I'm new at this.... Is there a tutorial showing how to take an existing file (example:the POI showing a majority of the AM radio stations in the U.S.).
Is anyone having trouble with the POI Editor from turbo the geo coding button no longer works I have to enter the cooridnates manually, does anyone have a fix for this.
Note user I'm putting this topic in the right forum.
I regularly do motorcycle rides in support of Wounded Warriors. The grand tour is The Tour of Honor, www.tourofhonor.com.
I need an icon create to go with the locations. A simple TOH would be ok but a better one using the Tour of Honor wheel would be outstanding.
I have no artistic ability and less computer graphic skills.
Where, if possible, can I download a copy of poi file verifier? I had some computer problems and lost mine. None of the links on the forum work.
Is it possible to delete multiple locations in Extra POI Editor? I can only seem to select one at a time and delete.
When trying to split the large Walmart - Sams cvs, all seems to go well except when selecting a store site, the site appears on the map but I don't get the "GO" or "Save" message.
Any thoughts what I'm doing wrong?
I dont know if this is old news but i think this is a nice site to get coordinates and adresses from.
best regards jocke
I've been trying to use TourGuide POIs on my Garmin Nuvi 40LM and I haven't been able to get them to work. I've read a lot of posts and have plenty of things to check out but, before I drive myself crazy, can anyone tell me if TourGuides even work on the 40LM? I need it doesn't support MP3s but, can I use TourGuides if I convert to WAVs? Or should I just give up?
Thanks in advance.
