Creating POI files


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

Custom POI file question

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

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.

Custom audio and alert tone possible for redlight cameras?

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?

M S Streets&Trips

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.

Using Basecamp to create a file

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?

POI Naming

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.

POI Editor in Linux/Ubuntu


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.
