HOW TO LOAD RLC on units using iGO navigation software

A number of aftermarket car head units use iGO (or Primo) navigation software. I just bought an Advent (Audiovox) unit.

1) File Format: X,Y,TYPE,SPEED,DirType,Direction separated by , but saved with txt extension. 3 is the dirtype code of a red light camera. Most RLC files, including the ones in this site, don't have directional information. In those cases the record ends with 3 zeros.

poi files,car speakers and red light cameras

I recently purchased a Garmin 1390LMT from Costco.
I previously had a nuvi760 which I just loved because of what it will do.

I noticed the 1390LMT does not have an output jack so you can you use your car speakers.any solution to this?
Also can POI and redlight/speed camera data and sounds be loaded on to this unit? If so do do you load it to the microsd card?

RVND 7710 CVS Format

On my garmin I used "br" to create line breaks. On my new RVND 7710, it seems it does not need these "br". My question is what should I replace them with?
What is the optimum format for the RVND 7710?

Also How do I delete an entire Custom POI folder?

Tourguide mode?

I have some POI's loaded on my memory card. I want them to alert when im in proximity. Do I have to go in and change all the filenames with the word "tourguide" in there somewhere?

Thanks

Same Coordinates

Just happened to run across this in Garmin.

A recent thread was asking about the same POI in built-in and Custom POI. Based on this, the number of duplicate coordinates is not a problem.

"What is the maximum number of points that can have the same coordinate location in a single custom POI file?

Answer:

SOX error?

The last two times I reloaded my custom POI files, the same wav file runs with every alert. That is, no matter which custom coordinate I get near, the same wav file runs. The pop-up alert is correct. I think the wav file is the last one in my directory, which makes it the last one handled by SOX.

Running Windows XP and 3/4/12 version of SOX.

WAV Volume

My alert .wav files are not as loud as the voices. Is there a way to increase the volume of the wav files while not increasing the volume of the voices?

Looking for a way to get street address, city, state from these lists...

I'm new to this site and the idea of geocoding and I am in love. This site and community are spectacular. I'm looking for a way to get the address, city and state out of these POI files (lat/lon/name). Is there a free way to batch convert them all? Thank you community.

Creating a POI in text edit?

Hi, I took a look at a csv file with POIs. And I did the same (i though) but it didnt turn out right. I did it in textedit. Can anyone take a look:
THE FILE:

THE COORDINATES:

At a distance

I'm interested in making a file using the locations of radio stations in the Mariners network. Some of them are in small towns off the main highway. How do I set the alerts for the maximum range so that I can change the radio dial without missing the game while going down the road? And what is the maximum range? Thanks in advance.

McDonald's Drive-Thru

Hi friends,
I'm new to the forum. I'm working on a project. I would like to know which McDonald's Restaurant in the U.S that have Drive-Thru's. I've seen the information on McDonald's PlayPlaces, but did not see any on Drive-thru's. Does anyone have that information available to share with me? Thanks for your help. Cheers,

Can POIs be combined?

file naming

I'm having a devil of a time getting proximity alerts to work on my Nuvi.

I've had this device for two years and read most of the posts on the topic on this forum. I thought I was doing it right, but I'm still not getting the alerts.

Do the POI files need to be in .csv format, or can they be .gpx?

PSF file format???

I'm considering getting a JVC HU. They have program which creates files in PSD format which get uploaded as POI files.

I have no idea how to convert a file into that format.

Does anyone have any thoughts.

Google tells me psd is normally photo shop format.

waypoint loading from an SD card

I often have to respond to places and go to many locations within the area to conduct damage assessments. Which GPS would be the best (easiest) to use to
A) Compile a waypoint set on a PC using CSV editor, text editor, or Excel
B) Place that file on an SD card, and
C) Load those locations to the GPS to find them.

Kohls USA

The Kohls USA poi file listed a store in downtown Portland. No such location. Who uploaded this? Please correct.

Convert gpx to csv or xls

I am brand new to this site and NOT technically inclined at all. I need help converting the gpx file to a csv or xls file that I can manipulate. I downloaded the USA Kroger file (gpx) but need only Kroger stores in one state, so I need an xls file to manipulate and then upload into Google Earth Pro.

Extra POI Editor - Conversion Problems

I'm using Extra POI Editor to edit the Diner's Drive-in's & Dives POI. The thing is that I had a Garmin which uses GPX format and now I have a TomTom which uses OV2 format. The GPX version uses the street, city state and other fields, but when I save it as a OV2 for TomTom it strips out all the data fields except the Name & Phone number.

Does anyone know of a better conversion program?

Have existing Custon POIs loaded on GPS Nuvi 3790T,.

Hi, and thanks a head of time for any help.
