    Default GPI file format

    Does anyone here know anything about the format of Garmin GPI files? I tried using this site's search engine but it rejects 'GPI' as an invalid search term. TIA ...

    It depends what you're referring to as 'Garmin GPI files'. Cyclops GPI files are quite different to other third-party files, the latter being simple to dissemble and manipulate, Cyclops not so easy at all. What exactly are you wanting to do?

    I have an old Streetpilot i3 and used to load POI's via the POIoader program when I ran Windows. GPI files, you probably know, are what the POI's are converted into before being uploaded. Nowadays I run Linux, so that's out. Yes I could run Wine but I thought this might me a good time to write some code to interface with my self-written GIS program. Yes I could arrive at enough of the format by trial and error to make do, but I thought I'd check here first. HTH ...
