When I go abroad I like to update all the POIs I shall possibly be wanting so, not knowing how to update as such, I have been downloading fresh ones. After a bit I was being told that I was downloading too much and had run out of credit. So no more downloads for me.
Is there a way I can get over this situation and update all my now sadly out of date stuff?
As I shall be changing to Garmin from TomTom I shall probably want to download afresh if that proves possible
Our extra (One-Click-Updates) does exactly that - you can update all your files in a single click. It packs all selected files as a single GPI or DB3 file. That extra feature is not available to registered users and developers.
Hi Mark, sorry about the time interval before my reply to yours. I forgot how to view my answers and did not see this. When I essentially asked the same question again, now I have a Garmin unit rather than the TomTom, I found the way and have given myself written instructions so will not forget it now.
Now my problem is that I do not know where to put the bitmaps so they appear on the sat nav screen. I have tried one in just about every folder and when I call up the POI to which it refers, the flag is where it should be but the bitmap is nowhere in sight. What am I doing wrong please?
Unfortunately I must be doing something wrong though I read the instructions carefully.
As an initial experiment I created a folder "POI for Garmin" and copied the downloaded files "JD Wetherspoon" and the attendant bitmap into it but could not find a "loader" so I recopied them into the Garmin POI folder and rebooted the GPS. Went to map and there was no sign of the Wetherspoon flag where my local one is. What am I doing wrong? Nor do I see any menu item on the Garmin for POIs. All this worked seamlessly on my old TomTom (though it was the maps folder) but that is dying rapidly.
I think I have cracked it. I realised the down loader might be a separate application, and so it was. I have tried one experiment, so far, and it has worked. Fingers crossed for what I shall do tomorrow (to tired to go on any more today).
