    I would like to add a file that is in ov2, question is how do I do that. It has about 6,000 poi's for every lake in BC Canada. I know I can email it as it is in kml form as well. I had it listed on poifriend.com for every one but it seems that site went bust and I'd like to install the list within the week to a newer tomtom.

    Any reason you can't zip it up and attach it to your post like you've done with your previous files?

    On a Windows PC, the easiest way to do it is to make a folder (give it a descriptive name), put the .ov2 inside and the .bmp icon as well if you have one, then right-click on the folder and select "send to..." - "Compressed (zipped) folder"

    Been so long I cannot recall how to do this properly so here goes. One thing I haven't figured out is how to merge the image and file so if you can assist it'd be appreciated. Ed

    Just put all the files you want to send in a folder and then "zip" the folder. More details in my previous post (assuming you're using a PC).

    OMG, I must have spent 15 hours on the computer trying to figure out how to load the BC_lakes file onto my tomtom. What I ended up doing was manually creating a poi on tomtom with the name bc lakes. I then made a backup copy and added the new file to the back up copy and deleted the manual tomtom file I made. It worked, but what a nightmare trying to figure it out. for some it may be easy but for others like me who don't spend a lot of time creating files and what not wow. poifriend.com made everything so easy. Me thinks since me rides a m/c up logging roads finding lakes to fish I should get a garmin with bc back country roadmaps built in.

    Took a while to relearn how I did the first few posts. You can see the dates from last time to just now. Ed

    Here is skytrain. It probably doesn't have all the locations so if someone want to update the file, feel free. Ed
