I'm new to the site and plan to spend time catching up. But I have two "novice user" questions I'd appreciate answers to in order to save time digging for answers right away.
I found a tool for converting .csv formated poi's to .gpx but the only difference I could tell was a much larger file. Are there any benefits to converting to a .gpx file format?
using media player 9 on windows xp. My computer & media player show files loaded but I cannot find them on my nuvi 350. Can anyone help? Thanks
Isn't bluetooth compatible is it??
If you discover an error in one of the existing POI files, what is proper procedure to have it corrected? I can do the fix fairly easily, but what is 'proper' protocol?
Thanks in advance!
Alright, here is your opportunity to praise your fellow factory buddies for all their hard work this week.
With the Garmin POI's, they have them neatly sorted into category folders: Auto, Restaurants, etc.
I not very successful on getting them to latch on to the POIs I've downloaded. Example is "Starbucks" POIs and the bmp icons. Can somebody learn me that?
Would a list of the cameras for escambia cty, fl be helpful? also santa rosa cty? thnx
you get no onscreen prompts from poiloader? did i do something wrong?
I downloaded my file for poiloader and saved it in a file named the same. then downloaded the weightstations poi file. where do i put it in my garmin nuvi 350? Im new 2 this would like to learn more. thnks, matt
I have a list of POI's on my computer, I keep adding more as they are added. Each time I load them into my nuvi 660, the old ones are removed. My question is, is there a way to keep the alert distants for each POI, without retyping them with each upload?
Miss POI Is There any where to up load Bmp Files To Match Pois for example Camping Bmp would be a 24x24 pic of a tent or a 24x24 pic of a railroad crossing sign and ETC. So every one can go there to download them for there poi files Thanks
you can view all the info within a csv file if you right click on it and choose 'open with' 'note pad'.

Would like to say hello to all.
Current poject that I am working on.

I wanted to let you all know that JM and I have been contacted to do a radio interview about POI Factory with Craig Crossman and Carey Holzman of Computer America.
We are so thrilled to be given this opportunity for exposure to more people.

I am very new to connecting the GPS to my computer, and I have a problem that no one else has seemed to have... When I try loading a poi file to my unit, i get through the first couple screens, but right as it's supposed to be loaded into the unit I get an error that says that the file cannot be loaded and that i should try running poiloader again. what can I do to fix this?
I've been trying to figure it out but the unit doesn't help much.
On the Nuvi types under SETTINGS > MAP > MAP DETAIL ... what are the differences between the 5 settings (Most, More, Normal, Less, Least)? Specifically, I'm wondering what each one draws.
