Post Converting excel-file to POI-file for TomTom     
Reply with quote

I'm a beginner using the Navigator professionally - and looking for instructions on how I can create a POI-file for my TomTom Go 930 out of my excel-file containing 1000 places, each with LONG & LAT in decimal degrees and name.

Grateful for any help!

Hi
1. Save your Excel file as a CSV
2. Load it with a POI Editor for Garmin: https://www.gps-data-team.com/convert.php
3. Save it as a TomTom OV2 file to your PC, and
4. Save it to your Tom Tom

Thanks, but it still doesn't work.
I have saved the excel-file in CSV-format. Converted it to ov2-format and loaded it on to the Navigator.
But searching for it on the Navigator - it seemes to be empty.

Looking on the file it seems to be semicolon separated, so I tried to edit the csv-file - searching and replaceing into comma.

I run MacOS -does that matter?

Maria,
CSV stands for a Comma Separated Values (Mac & PC).
Go to https://www.gps-data-team.com/convert.php and open a POI Editor, create a simple sample file (with e.g. your home location), save it as a CSV and OV2 and replicate that sample line format...
It is explained here: https://www.gps-data-team.com/pda-gps-navigation/forum/3.html
