    Default Is this possible ? .GPX to Poi

    Hi i want to turn my favourites into poi that are currently stored on current.gpx file is this possible.....the reason for this is the storage place on chip is full and i need to transfer my favourites to a poi file so it uses internal 2gb memory that free instead of limited space on chip


    I know i can copy and transfer .GPX file to other unit of save as backup but its space i need not the backup.....Thanks in advance

    Use POI Loader from Garmin.
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    The Help file in POI Loader is very good.

    Copy the current.gpx file to the computer and process it using POI Loader
    POI Loader will create a GPI file which must be copied to the GPI folder to the Nuvi.
    You can also use POI Loader to Transfer the GPI file to the Nuvi directly.

    ......you have to remember to delete your favorites
    To do this,you need to a master-reset your device (or delete this way-points with menu' of device)
    Otherwise, for the same POI,you will have a dual reporting: way-point (GPX) and POI (GPI)

    POI in current.gpx has occupied a very small place and it is about several kB only. The most of volume in this file is the recorded current track. So deleting of this file it is not solution! The new file will be increasing in during of your driving by adding current statistic and over some time it will the same as deleted.
    So you must clear the some space in any case. The Garmin makes some temporary files in during of work and if you do not have several mB of free space it may be cause of problem (with calculating of a long route for example).
    P.S. You can open current.gpx in Garmin Mapsource program and you can see content of file clearly. You also can delete unnecessary track info and as result you get the very small file with POI only.
