I guess I was semi-successful on sending the file and didn"t know it.
You can delete one of them,they are duplicates.When sending the file to (http://www.gpspassion.com/_safileup1.asp),It was in French so I wasn"t sure if it was sent.

Hi,

I renamed "johndh_POICATEGORYNAME.zip". New name is:
"johndh_Swiss_Chalet.zip". I removed space character.

I put your file in a protected directory.

I modified your first post.

Does this file work? Garmin POILoader says there is an error with the file.

Thanks.

I took a look at the CSV file and it's formatted incorrectly for use with a Garmin GPS.

1) The first line should be removed as it's the titles rather than a data line.
2) The Lat and Long fields are in wrong order.
3) There are too many fields. The "4th field" should be enclosed with quotes as there's so much punctuation in it. POI Loader expects a maximum of 4 fields, each separated by a comma. If any field contains a comma (or line feeds to improve display formatting in the GPS screen) it must be in quotes.

Example from CSV file:

bg_lat,bg_long,Address,Prov/State,Postal/Zip,Phone,Del/Pick-up,INTERSECTION
51.1045,-114.0555,5010 4TH ST. N. E.,"CALGARY, AB",T2K 5X8,TEL: 403-275-1642 ,1-866-439-0439 ,INTERSECTION: MCKNIGHT & EDMONTON TRAIL

Should be:

-114.0555,51.1045,"5010 4TH ST. N. E.","CALGARY, AB,T2K 5X8,TEL: 403-275-1642 ,1-866-439-0439 ,INTERSECTION: MCKNIGHT & EDMONTON TRAIL"

But there's really too much data in the 4th field to display in most GPS screens.

I think it would be better like this:

-114.0555,51.1045,Swiss Chalet,"5010 4th St NE
Calgary, AB
403-275-1642"

My 2c worth.

Thank you! I was in the process of coverting it myself :)

BTW, do you know what the original format was? It is a format GPS babel can convert?

Thanks.

Hi Dewi,

When you uploaded file: johndh_Swiss_Chalet_Garmin.zip you destroyed the file uploaded by johndh.

I renamed your file: Dewi_Swiss_Chalet_Garmin.zip: here.

Hi jlb,

I'm not sure how I destroyed johndh's file as it has a different file name than johndh's (I added "_Garmin"). Perhaps you could explain how it occurred so it doesn't happen again.

Also, I did not want to take credit for the file as johndh did the work. All I did was concatenate some fields and delete a couple of columns. I haven't verified or changed the original data at all.

Regards,

Dewi

Hi Dewi,

You are right. You don’t destroyed johndh's file. I din’t see that you added _Garmin.

However you don’t have to create a file beginning with johndh_
