Can anyone please suggest which CSV format from the various SatNav brands listed for POI download is the more standard or "generic" format suitable for uploading to a hand-held GPS unit (as opposed to a car navigation unit)?
Thanks in advance.
TomTom, which is in your signature, uses ov2 format. From this site you can download POI in a spreadsheet format, if you want, but then you will have to use the conversion tools... Try to download any poi here: http://poi.gps-data-team.com/ - You will see all formats for different GPS programmes.
