Creating POI files


Extra_POI_Factory - missing / unregistered ieframe.DLL

Just installed this tool (5.32), worked pretty well - once.

Next time said ieframe.dll was missing / unregistered or some other related component was missing / unregistered.

Couldn't get it to go again despite uninstalling, reinstalling, turning off AV etc.

Writer says he can be reached in this forum, so I thought I'd post this here.

Live Theatre

My Garmin had live theatre locations in the POIs. I recently got a Rand McNally TND 720 and it does not have them. Does anyone know how to move them from one to the other or can someone build a POI for them. Thanks



Fidelity Banks - PA (File Closed)

All branches of Fidelity Bank - PA now belong to WesBanco. I can not tell from WesBanco's website how many branches they have or even what states they are in. So this is the end of this POI file.

My primary resource will be this page:

Editing, Deleting and Transfering POI Files

It has been a while since I did any of this. I had an old Garmin 265wt that died. Just recently I purchased a new Garmin Nuvi 3700 series.
I would like to move the old POI files off my SD card and back to my computer.
Once on my computer - I would like to edit or delete some of the files that I never used.

Lost (ha, no pun intended)...easiest way to add 10-25 destinations each day

I am an incurably clueless noob. I have searched these forums over and over and still can't figure out how to do what I want.

Convert between formats

I have a file I created with the following type coordintates

39.311844 76.626258

I save it in a .csv format and my Garmin can read it.

I just checked other poi files and find they are in this type format (which Garmin as no trouble reading)

-68.30356 44.35395

Is there a program that will do the conversion for me?


Extra POI Editor comes up blank

As of today, Extra POI Editor doesn't appear in Win 7 when launched. The icon shows up in the taskbar, but nothing on the main screen. If I hover over the toolbar icon, the application preview shows up, but the application area is blank.

Any fixes? This is the main application I use to build POI files for our trips. Help!!!

How many sub-folders will work with the nuvi 50?

How many sub-folders will work with the nuvi 50?

Say I have a folder "Food" and within food can I have a folder "Western" and another "Italian" and so on? I can only get the "Food" folder and csv files in that folder to load, the Western and Italian don't appear within the food folder.

Adding custom POIs from xls file

I worked in an office where custom POI files were loaded with phone numbers and one other data set (birth date or month).
I have MS Streets & Trips which generates gpx files but does not create GPX files with the "more" data or list the phone number (although the S&T will show the data on the screen).
How can I generate CSV or GPX files which will include the additional data?

Laziness (on my part)

I'm wondering if all you nice poi file maintainers and creators, could possibly keep your csv's and or Gpx files when you update them named the same as prior to the update.
Hmm.. doesn't sound right. Ok here's an example. The last time the walmart file was uploaded it was called Wal-Mart_United States & Canada.csv.
Yesterday an update was put on the site called

Extra POI and missing POI's

I'm making a list of custom POI's at the moment using Extra POI editor. The problem is that for some reason some POI's simply will not show when the file is transferred to the unit (Nuvi 2445). I've had a look with excel at the file and can't see any way the ones that don't show up are different.

Error in loading POI into PC

After loading POI's on my PC I get this error message
"This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action." I do not have the Garmin 2460 plugged in ( will be here tomorrow ) but do have a Garmin POI loader installed. Thanks for the help.

Finally, transfer CSV , OV2 files to BaseCamp via GPX format

Shouted Yahoo!!!!

Finally I figured out how to get the CSV files to Basecamp....and the map to show the POIs.

I tried MyPOI Manager, POI Edit, POI Loader and GPSBabel to no avail... I could get the data to transfer but NO Map to show...

Then I downloaded from POI Factory the Tom Tom .0v2 download instead of CSV format.

Extra POI Editor and proximity alerts.

We have seen several threads regarding proximity alerts.
TurboCCC does not respond to emails. Below is a thread that has useful info about Extra POI Editor (EPE) that he had documented. Lots of help in there.

Getting Proximity Alerts to Alert 2

I've seen the original question 'getting Proximity alerts to Alert' but don't want to interfere with his question since mine is a different one.

Getting Proximity Alerts to Alert

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1695 which I have successfully loaded POIs for speed alerts/ red light cameras, Roadside Oddities, and Rest Areas. I manually set distances to my preferences and all work well. I then tried adding Truck/RV fuel Stations ( Again, I manually set distance for 7000 feet.

converting files for nuvi 2450LM

I have poi's downloaded and in their own subfolders in a main folder I named, "My POI's". These files have extensions that have not been converted (.mp3, .csv, .bmp).
I have renamed them adding "TourGuide" at the beginning with a space then the file.

Example: TourGuide RestAreasCombined(Ver.AZ).csv
