    Default importing poi

    hello
    purhaps this is a stupid question

    I have downloaded different poi files in *.rupi concerning campings in differend countrys, they are now in different maps (by country) but the files have all the same name.
    how can i put them into sygic, do i have to change the names ( if so to what name) or do put the files in the countrys they belong to.
    sorry for my bad english

    Create a folder "import" in maps folder in Sygic folder. Run the app, it will prompt you that some files are imported in poi database. If they have the same name just quit app and put files in that import folder and restart app each time you want. It will belong to the right country automatically as it's GPS data.

    Here is one point to note.

    Do not put POI from countries you did not install in.

    You will get an error.

    thx this works for 1 file, but is sygic saving the imported file as a new file? cause all the files ( the ones to import) have the same name, so i have to replace the previous imported file with the new one. i can not change the name of the files because they need to have the same name as the icons.otherwise i have to change the names for the import files and the names for the icons.

    I think the easiest way to point this out is to show you examples of POI's

    Here is an example of just one country and POI's

    Country Belgium:

    B-Abbey.bmp
    B-Abbey.upi

    B-Aldi.bmp
    B-Aldi.upi

    B-BreweriesPubs.bmp
    B-BreweriesPubs.upi

    As you can see each poi has a different name and the the bmp and upi have to have the same name.

    It will be imported in that countries folder.

    The same is true for any type of POI you want to import.

    So if it is Germany and like you said they all have the same name.

    You will have to rename that POI and BMP to make it different.

    Again example:

    The files you downloaded
    Folder 1
    Camping spots.rupi <-rename it to Camping_D.rupi then import it for Germany by putting in the import folder
    Turn on Sygic and it will import it.
    Folder 2
    Camping spots.rupi <-rename it to Camping_B.rupi then import it for Belgium by putting in the import folder
    The same thing here.

    If there are BMP files they have to match also.

    You can put as many different poi's all at the same time just so long each as a different name.

    So I hope this helps you out.
