Saving POI files

After uploading POI data to my nuvi 350 I get a message asking if I want to transfer the files from the SD card to internal memory. Is there an advantage or disadvantage to doing this?

Creating Garmin c330 POI from Magellan GPS

I have Magellan Color waypoints saved as a .wpt file in MapSend Topo. Also have the same file as an Excel type. What is the best way to get to a format to upload into the c330?

Maximum POI size for Magellan RoadMate 3050T

I am working on custom POI files to Magellan files using the Magellan software to import the *.txt files I made up using GPSBABEL to extract the inmformation I want from freely downloaded .gpx files. I have my shortname set to 24 characters and it appears the descripton is bigger, not sure how to set that parameter in my (GPSBABEL) style file.

The Magellan program accepts the smaller files but when I do one with 900 points the program can't handle it, my guess is it's the overall file size, but may be a problem with my wine (run windows programs on linux) setup. I don't have windows to test it, so if anyone knows the maximum file size size it would be helpful.

Google Earth - More data to CSV

How do you get the address/city/st/zip/phone info from Google Earth? If you click locations, it gives you the information, but when you save-as, it removes all but the lat/long/name?

Loading custom POI's

If I create several POI files under different names, can several custom POI files be loaded into memory at the same time from a SD card?

How do you purge the POI entries from memory so the screen doesn't get cluttered? I may only want to load beaches and bays, but I usually won't need them loaded when I want to find an In 'n Out burger.

Splitting POI files by state

I'm awaiting my Nuvi 660 to arrive. This will be my third GPS. First a Garmin II+, then a Garmin Vista, now the Nuvi. I'm used to waypoints, but I'm just setting up my POI files. I've downloaded several large POI files like beaches.zip. Is there an easy way to split out sections by state, or do most folks load the entire file? Seems like loading needless overhead might slow things down. My old waypoint files aren't nearly so large.

SP c330 Transparent color

I tried 255,0,255 to no avail.

Does anyone have the specifications for POI icons for the c330?

Transferring files

Another novice! I just got a nuvi 350 and loaded some POI files to an SD card from this site with no problem. Now when I turn on the unit it asks me if I want to transfer the files from the SD card to internal memory. I have said "NO" mainly because I don't know if I can delete the data later if I choose. Is there an advantage to transferring the files and if I do how can I delete them later?
This is truly an amazing device with great sensitivity even indoors acquiring generally 9 of 12 satelites.

Catorgorizing Custom POI's Like the Preloaded POIs

I can save POIs to my Garmin c550. They show up under my "Extras" button. No problem. The issue I have is that I would like to group them into different catagories --"Malls" "Restaurants" "Attractions" and etc., similar to the way the preloaded POIs are presented. Can this be done?

Cannot load POI file

I tried to load the Flying J POI file using POI loader 2.3.2 and 2.4. after downloading and opening the file for Flying J. No matter what file I "browse" to (including the actual file) the POI loader tells me there is no data in that directory.

What am I doing wrong??????

Using GPS eXchange (.gpx) file format

Have found several sites that offer free downloads of waypoint maps in the GPS eXchange (.gpx) file format. Can these be converted to a usable Garmin POI file?

iGO Poi DB format used by Mio C310x

Hi,

I did not find a mention of the database format for the iGO program (now used by the MIO C310x that sold so many units in the past few weeks).

Is there a way to import these POI files, and to export to that format?

Presumably the .csv format is being used as the "standard" exchange format here?

I will read more, Thanks.

4th line Format

Hi I was wanting to update one of my poi's by adding a 4th line that will contain the Address, City, State and Zip.
I'm not sure if it should drop to a second line or not.
Is this the correct format?

"516 North College Street; Charlotte, NC 28202"

THANKS ROBERT

Robert,
You just saved me a LOT of work trying to find Lat/Long, one at a time.
This site was great, and worked on almost ALL of my sites. (I'll have to manually find about 15 sites).

This site was worth checking out.
