The content of the categories doesn't matter the file system is the same whether USA or Canada or anywhere in the world. It is the Lat/Long co-ordinates that determine where the location will be shown on the map.



Yup that's what I was thinking. Anyone have a canadian content xxx.mgln file that they'd like to share? Maybe we can have a single working copy that we can each help build/maintain.

Email me and I can attach 2 - you can then edit them through your "POI editor". I also don't gaurantee their accuracy as they were all obtained from others on this site.

What I mean by two is two POI files - all with Canadian Content.

I searched for MGLN on Google and didn't find any files. Is there a repository of these specific files anywhere (US Versions)?

I am working on a few CSV files & the POI editor to use with my 2200T, very time consuming to get the proper format. Thanks for the great post.

The xxx.mgln files are created by the "POI Editor". I am not aware of anyone making them available on the Internet. People have made CSV and GPX files available because they can be used across different vendors. As you are probably aware of there is a grouping of these POI files on this forum site as well as a few others sites across the Net.

Thanks for the reply, this is what I thought. If there is any interest, I will be glad to make mine available when they are done.

I am working on the following companies:
Shopping
Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Kinkos

Auto Parts
Advance Auto Parts

Books
Barnes & Nobles
Borders

Clothing
JC Penny
Ross

Electronics
Best Buy
Circuit City
Radio Shack

Gas
Costco with Gas
Shell

General Merchandise
Costco
Sams Club
Sears
Target
Wal Mart

Hardware
Home Depot
Lowes

Tools
Harbor Freight

Restaurant
Famous Daves
Outback
Ruby Tuesday

The format I'm using for the "Name" field is to put the name of the store with the city if the city was present. For multiple same name cities, if there is no address listed in the CSV file, I used <store name><city>1, 2, 3, etc. For example:
Target Podunk
Target Miami 1

If the address is present for same name cities I used the street location. For example:
Target Miami Biscayne Bv
Kinko's NYC 1400 Broadway

Address data if present is being placed in "Description". If other data such as state, ZIP, phone # is in another field it was merged with the address using the find & replace to delete the commas (as you noted in the first post).

I'm also retired- good thing, because this is pretty time consuming to get it the way I want it.

Thanks again for showing how to do this.

Hi,

I cannot transfer POI from PC to my Magellan Roadmate 2200T (has been upgraded to crossover 2500NA)using POI editor, I always get this warning "no device detected". Windows does detect the device though. And the Gps' screen shows "USB connected".

Any way to fix this. Thank you....

StadiumRocks - you do not have to connect you GPSr to your PC in order to transfer data to and from the PC and GPSr. Just buy a multimedia card reader/writer that connects to your PC's USB port. Most of todays pc's come with these already built in. Then you just move your data back and forth using the card reader/writer.

You could get version 3.50.90 of the Magellan Tools that work with the new 2.14 firmware upgrade. I believe if you do a search here you should find a link to it.

jlg234,

Thanks for the info. I will try as you suggested. I do have card reader built in my PC. I didn't think that I shouldn't have connected the GPS directly to PC for this purpose.

Again, thank you.

Maestro 4350/4370 does not come with POI editor, but you can install custom POI using "Content Manager", which can be downloaded from the Magellan site. I’ve just installed a set of POI in .klm format.

Do these MY_POI_NN.mgln user-POI files work when placed on the external SD of the "new" (has maps in internal flash) Roadmate 1412?

Any file name, or only one specific name?
I see no "choosing User-POI file name function on this GPS.

Does the file need to be in a special folder, or in the SD card root?

Thanks, I will start looking in the On-CD User Manual.

Continued : Oh, yes, I found that one can select user-POI files under Points Of Interest, My POIs, Change My POI file, Select a POI File.

Now, to insert an SD card and write some U-POI files to it.

The 1412 accepts multiple User-POI files (SomeName.mgln)
on the root of an external "blank" (FAT format) SD card.
Up to a 2GB SD card may be used, but a 4GB (non-SDHC)
was not recognized by the firmware 3.10 version.

If the POI files are written to the internal flash "TFAT", they
probably go into the USR/CPOI folder that is there, right?

If the external SD is a real "MAP" SD card, the User-POI files should be written to the same-named folder, or the Root?
