    Windows POI Editor

    I have a GPS system with IGo 8 software.

    I would like to replace or add new POI on my GPS.
    A lot of the existing POI are outdated and wrong.

    But all the changes I make to the POI file are not stored on the SD-card.

    Does anybody know an editor for the POI file?

    TIA

    If the poi's are on the poi file that you put on the content/poi folder, then, there is no way to edit those pois, as those are the pois that are released together with the maps and are in proprietary user non-editable format. The only way is to get the latest poi files from content provider (Navteq, TeleAtlas/Tomtom, or other local providers).

    However, you can put your own user poi's in the content/userdata/poi folder in standard KML format.

    If you are talking about user poi which are saved by you (not the one came with the map) then you can edit them by upoi editor which is small program.

    if yes please tell me and I will try to upload it for you.

    Add the following to the end of your sys.txt (backup the original first):
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    then you can use one of these catagories which is not commonly used for the (forbidden zone in historic centre in Italy), let us suppose you chose catagory 18 then it will be as foloows:

    [speedcam_category:18]
    activated_spoken_type=speech
    activated_speech="Caution, forbidden historic zone ."

    approach_beep_distances=300
    approach_beep_spoken_type=speech
    approach_beep_speech="forbidden historic zone ."

    warn_distances="0:600"
    min_frc=-1
    use_road_speedlimit=0

    in this example the unit will alert you before 600 meter and repeat that every 300 meter, ofcource you can change the text of "activated_speech" and "approach _beep_speech" to whatever you like, as well as the alert distance.

    after that you have to store each historic point and store it as speed breaker.
