    Makes also sense, cause when checking the coordinates of the circle around the POI, its not detailed enough.
    I mean 3 times almost the same coordinates with 2 after comma and having a radius of 50m, partly some speedcameras have 4 coordinates and a radius of 80m.
    Just wondering whether this is related to the Category, but I haven't found something common between category and circle/radius

    The circles have to be inside the proximity of poi and bearings, it is the cirles that are the alerts.No cirles, no directional alert.

    Ventenfjell,

    I do not understand why circles would be needed with bearing. I can understand that the circles may have to be within the global proximity, but bearing is an driving angle toward a POI. Circles do not seem to be related to that. Also, I compiled POIs with GPI Creator without any circles and the resulting .gpi contained the bearing information. It does not seem to be related. This being said, this is only what I could observe.

    I dont know why the circles are needed. But I never seen successfull directional poi with only poi+bearing+proximity,it gives both way alert.The section with speed alert is always the circle radie+radie when using circles. Maybe Im missing somthing without the circles, but I dont know what.

    Not from me: "bearing angles are not working yet on gps". Sorry for not stating the source of this information. I do not want to put anybody in trouble.

    I thought yesterday about the circles also and the only thing what came to my mind which makes sense is the following.
    A speedcamera should only be in a certain range, for example, if driving on the street it makes only sense that the speedcamera covers the current driving direction and range. If a circle is defined, the opposite traffic would not be affected (no alarm) cause the speedcamera is, when driving on the opposite lane, more then 50m or 80m away.
    Hope I could explain it understandable

    I thought exactly the same thing, but when you say "cause the speedcamera is, when driving on the opposite lane, more then 50m or 80m away", I would instead say "cause the speedcamera is more then 50m or 80m away when driving the opposite way and the circles are on the other side of it".

    Good news! EPE now supports reading/writing bearing list and circle list from/to GPX file. 2 notes:

    1- Garmin extensions only support bearing lists in the GPX files. Not circle list. Because of this, I created my own GPX schemas which allows EPE to read and write both circle list and bearing list.

    2- POI Loader does not support circle lists because there is no GPX schema for it(point #1 above). POI Loader does not like bearing lists either. Only GPI Creator supports bearing lists, but no GPS supports them. Life is tough!

    To ensure GPX compatibility with both POI Loader and GPI Creator, I put all my bearing lists and circle lists in a special comment statement. This way, they are ignored by both programs except EPE. Yeah!

    A couple limitations:

    1- My bearing lists will be ignored by GPI Creator. So, even if I provide a way to edit those statements in EPE, you can't use EPE to write GPX files with bearing lists and convert them to .GPI with GPI Creator. No worries! This is just a temporary limitation and I will let you configure this in the Preferences soon.

    2- EPE does not save bearing lists and circle lists to .GPI for now. This is the next step.

    What can you do for now?

    Simply enjoy EPE and give me feedback about the circle list or bearing list interface. You can read/write .GPX files and make sure everything is correctly read/written.

    Oh yeah: a little link for v5.13:

    Here's the link for EPE v5.14:

    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    What's new:

    - Save POI files with circle list to .GPI (cool!)
    - Overlay proximity circle on the POI Edit window map.
    - Maintain the last zoom level in the POI Edit map when refreshing map

    Edit: just fixed a minor issue in v5.14. Just download again.
