UPDATED 05/22/2006 : Some major updates today for www.POInUSA.com - we'd discussed this in the past and now with 30+ entries in the list, it seemed like a good time to see if we could get organized a bit better.

First is the new category linked from www.POInUSA.com , i.e. http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/default.asp?CAT_ID=20 - it holds several subsections where we can hopefully find a good spot for all the discussions. The section that will be of interest to previous contributors here is the Custom POI "Collections" where each collection can have its own thread for more regular updates and easier posting of additions and corrections by people who download the list. I used groomden's message indicating the upload of the REI Stores as an example of what could be done. People who have made POIs available in the current thread are encouraged to start a thread of their own and help is available if need be.

This is very much work in progress and a common spot for all those interested in sharing custom POIs, so feel free to pipe in with any questions or suggestions on how to get things organized. People willing to moderate/coordinate these new forums are also welcome to drop me an email on gpspassion [@] gmail.com

Here is the news item on the portal : http://www.gpspassion.com/fr/news.asp?id=699


SHARING CUSTOM POIs - www.POInUSA.com
NEW - Speed Cameras in Europe : www.EuropePOI.com

INTRO / 1.AVAILABLE POIs / 2.HOW TO ADD OR CORRECT A POI /
3.HOW TO BUILD AND SHARE A POI DATABASE / 4. USEFUL TOOLS


INTRODUCTION

Note by GpsPasSion : While TomTom has had this feature since their navigation solution were launched in 2002, Garmin recently made their POI Loader (Compatible with C3x0/i3/27x0/7x00/Quest 2, nüvi, 60/76Cx) available and there has been interest more interest in sharing custom POIs via the forums. This type of approach has been very successful in France with www.POIenFrance.com where we now have hundreds of thousands of POIs. The way we did it in France was have people interested in a particular type of POIs (the "POI Cat Manager") sharing their lists and coming up with a list obtained by matching addresses with GPS coordinates for instance. Other people could then download that list and add new POIs in the thread with the "POI Cat Manager" updating his list. We need to make sure we do not publish lists that belong to other people. So let's see what can happen with www.POInUSA.com !


1. AVAILABLE POIs
FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY - DO NOT REDISTRIBUTE OR LINK DIRECTLY TO THE POI FILE

CLICK HERE FOR THE UPDATED INDEX


2. HOW TO ADD A POI

If you have any POIs you want to add to existing databases linked above, just post a message in this thread stating:
- POI Database concerned
- Description
- Latitude (in decimal degrees, DD.dddd)
- Longitude (in decimal degrees, DD.dddd)
The Database "manager" can then add the data and upload a fresh file to the server.


3. HOW TO BUILD AND SHARE A POI DATABASE


  • How to build your own POI Database by njphilwt - > LINK <

  • Uploading your POIs :
    You can upload you POIs using this method:
    1. Make a zip of your .csv and .bmp file and call it USERNAME_POICATEGORYNAME.zip (avoid spaces)
    1. Send your zip file here: http://www.gpspassion.com/_safileup1e.asp
    2. File will be in http://www.gpspassion.com/upload2/USERNAME_POICATEGORYNAME.zip
    3. You can link it with this code (remove the blanks)

  • [ url="http://www.gpspassion.com/upload/USERNAME_POICATEGORYNAME.zip" ]POICATEGORY[ /url]
    4. Leave a message here so the admins can update the links.

    Note : do not copy POIs available elsewhere, the POIs must be yours, after recording them with your GPS on the spot for instance or placing them on a map based on previous trips.


    4. USEFUL TOOLS

    • POIedit to create POIs or import existing lists, save them to .asc, remove the first 3 lines and then rename to .csv and you're set to import them into the POI Loader, to use them with TomTom save them to .ov2
    • Maps of North America for use with POIedit - >> HERE <<
    • GPStoPOI (beta) by njphilwt - this program converts from GPX format to CSV format or vice versa. You can create waypoints in MapSource and then convert them to POI (CSV) files. You can also convert POI (CSV) files that others have created, and then edit them in MapSource, see link for details


    After pulling my hair out for a few weeks, I finally got my unit to show my POIs with the Points of intrest Loader. Now having used it a few days, I'm liking it more and more, this thing can be very powerful. How about post the way you use your POI, or what places/categories you've come up with ... so I can get some ideas from the entire forum when I make some more POIs

    So far I have (3) categories :

    1. Super Walmart stores
    2. Florida
    3. Local stops ...whats yours ?

    I think I may have posted this in the wrong thread at first so I'm also posting it here..
    Uploaded Speed and Red-Light Cams for the Phoenix Metro area current as of this post. Arizona needed to generate revenue due to the states HUGE budget deficit. So they decided to stick it to the tax payer and installed a bunch of these cameras on the highways.
    I'd been looking all over for this data but had no luck finding a current download. So I made one myself.
    The data is in 2 convenient formats:
    Garmin CSV
    and
    IGO/MIO CSV,TXT and spud

    Enjoy...I will probably be doing one for all of AZ soon.

    Welcome Adventure,

    Please don’t supply files beginning with BobM_ like BobM_Waterfalls_Ontario.zip

    I renamed your file:

    Adventure_Waterfalls_Ontario.zip

    Here is your file:

    Can POI's be added to the iWays? I hope! We need to add them as real POI's and not user waypoints.

    Sorry, I use a Magellan POI editor and it let's me define/map columns so they don't have to be in any particular order. I uploaded a new version, hope that works.
    jlb Posted - 16 avr. 2008 : 19:46:53
    Hi sahgps,

    There was a problem with your coordinates. It's not a csv file for Garmin

    Please replace:

    Latitude,Longitude,Name,Description,Category
    41.474825,-81.748492,NB 2100 Block West Bv,2100 West Bv - Location 1,Fixed Pole Radar
    41.446528,-81.625133,EB 8800 Block Broadway Av,8800 Broadway Av - Location 12,Fixed Pole Radar
    ...

    Added a file for Cleveland Traffic Cameras. I may be wrong but I don't think the posted by rkinkopf is accurate. Plus I added some locations where mobile units have often been used.

    Two points: Under Dealerships POIs I suggest that the icon for Honda Motorcycle Dealers Canada be changed from the automotive icon to the flying wing icon for Honda's motorcycle lineup.

    Correction: For my local Honda Motorcycle Dealers of Canada: Currently reads -75.697929,45.423492,Powersports @ RV Canada,"1 Laser Street,Ottawa, ON
    Should read: -75.70507,45.33590,Powersports @ RV Canada,"1 Laser Street,Ottawa, ON
    Cheers, h03st1300
