    I know I wrote that stuff somewhere, but I do not remember if it is here or on POI-Factory. As stated in my previous post you quoted, the 37xx suports only 256-color map symbol. I think Magenta is used for transparency and the map symbols can be 20x20 pixels max. Anything above will be cropped. As for the Where-To symbols, I suggest to use the 32-bit bitmap format. It works nicely and it supports the transparency correctly.

    Hi,
    ich bin von anfang an begeistert von diesem Programm für mein Garmin Zumo 550.
    Gibt es eine moöglichkeit, meine eigene POI zu meinen Android Navigon zu übertragen. Oder irgend eine app um meine eigenen POI zu verwalten, von der ich dann Navigon oder GoogleMaps in Android starte. Suche schon seit wochen im www und habe auf GooglePlay alle Programme getestet.
    Danke für Antworten.

    If I understand you correctly, you want to take your POI's there and have them available/show in Google Navigation.

    Check out the english(sorry) AndroidForums link below. It's for Android, regardless of phone manufacturer. I'd highly suggest reading the entire thread before attempting as there is some newer info further down in the thread.

    Code:

    I'm a member there and have contemplated doing the above but I just can't peel myself away from relying on my nuvi. Sad, I know. Too, my phone has the same 4.3" screen size as my nuvi.

    I believe Google Maps has a limit of 1,000 individual points. And quite possibly Google Navigation too.

    Also, you might look at:
    The free [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] or the $0.99USD [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Not too sure of their applicability to what you're looking to accomplish .......... Just a thought.

    And if you don't have that many points you can simply locate in Google Maps online and send directly to your phone.

    @turboccc, thanks a lot for the great tool. Now I can generate my "favorite" into GPI. I also tried to add pic to the custom POI and generate GPI via Garmin POI loader, but unfortunitely, the pic is not showed in my nuvi 2595, this means the pic can only be seen using TourGuides? Thanks again.

    On my Dezl 560 the Where-to icons must be 96x96 pixels (Just info )

    I have made an GPI file using this fantastic program, but i have a little annoying issue with it. The file is called DFT.gpi. It's exported by category (3 categories, Customers, Sweeden & Ferries)

    When i press the Where-to button, the POI shows fine, but when i press it, i get to a new screen where i have to choose between All or DFT. After i press DFT again, i the see the categories.

    Where to -> DFT -> DFT -> Customers -> xxxxxxx

    This makes me do even more key pressing, than using the extras menu

    Is this the GPS or maybe EPE fault ?

    Another problem: If i tick two categories in a poi in EPE, they don't export to those two categories, they export to a new category with the name cat1+cat2.
    Is this the way it's supposed to be ?

    @boyamyxia,

    The .GPI file creation in EPE is not completed. No way to add pictures using the the Link field. For now, the only image you can add is the map symbol by using the .bmp of the same name as the .csv or .gpx.

    Not sure. It seems weird to have a category DFT in a file called DFT. It normally does not happen. I guess this may be related to the 560. Not 100% sure. I have not played with EPE in a while.

    If you export POIs with 2 categories, then yes it will create a file name with cat1+cat2. Not what you expected, right? Maybe EPE would have been better to export the same POI in each category: cat1 and cat2. Now, you would have a duplicate. I guess it always depends on your application.

    Sorry, i got that wrong. It's : DFT -> Customers -> Customers -> xxxxxxx
    I think it's a little annoying i have to press customers twice, but maybe it's just me

    I really think it should duplicate the POI into each category. If i wanted a cat1+cat2, then i could just create that category in EPE... again, maybe it's just me
