Hi,
I downloaded the red light custom POI file and installed no problem...when I next updated I deleted custom POI and then installed the new custom POI file. However, I now have no custom POI icons on the map, none of the red light camera ones or any of the original preloaded ones (fuel,atm,food). I've tried downloading, reinstalling, resetting to no avail. The POI are in the GPS as can navigate to any of the fuel, ATM, food and custom POIs but they don't show on the GPS by default. I'm running a Garmine Nuvi 2497LMT...any ideas?
Thanks Andrew_1101

Sounds like you only loaded the .gpx file and not the mp3 and .bmp files as well.
I have a permanent directory on the computer for POI files, and each type in a sub- directory.
When you update anything it will overwrite the old file with the new file.
You only need to then get the .gpx file (data) and not the added required files each time you update anything.

C:Garmin/POI
C:Garmin/POI/speed cameras
C:Garmin/POI/fuel
C:Garmin/POI/food
etc, etc, etc,

Have the program SOX.exe in the same directory where you have
POIloader.exe and POI loader then combines ALL the files in your POI directory into one file called poi.gpi which is then loaded to the GPS.

Interesting, I have the same problem on my Garmin, I will try this way then. Until now I only focused on the POI that i was interested in. Smile

thanks guys, i'm new to the site and didn't see your replies so thanks for the feedback. the POIs were in the GPS as I could select them to navigate to but the GPS wasn't showing any icons on the screen by default, not even the original icons like ATMs, Fuel, etc.
I took the unit for a drive in the car and after about 2mins they automatically reappeared on the screen. Just an internal software bug by Garmin I'm guessing. I do wish I could turn off the default garmin POI icons like fuel and ATMs as they aren't desireable to be shown by default.
Since my first attempt I've done what Johna suggests and successfully added new POI to the register and downloaded that file to my GPS... thanks guys!

Glad you sorted it out. You can do what I do and don't install the .bmp files that I don't want cluttering the screen and don't download them, or, store them in another directory away from the Poi's.

Post suppressing Garmin unwanted icons     
Reply with quote

Hi Johna, the icons that I want to turn off are the ones already installed by Garmin. For example ATMs, they appear on the screen showing where to withdraw money, not really important from a navigation point of view. I can suppress the icons for the additional POI files I install but I can't see a way of suppressing those that were put in by Garmin originally.

Will check mine and see if there is a way of doing it.. Wink

Have gone through all settings and cant see anything to alter in the default details.
Looks like you can only remove the bmp files in the downloaded date from here, then use POI loader unfortunately. Crying or Very sad
