By the way is POI2Go software? Is it something I can use freely? I would like to know so maybe I can helpout or at least fill my own requestI'll take this job up.
Edit: hmm.. should've have spoke too soon. It's gonna take a while to load all 246 stores. POI2Go doesn't list them properly =(.
Of course, I know it will take awhile.dude, it'll be a while lol. I'm still in BC. I have done any other provinces.. why does Wal-Mart have so many stores lol.
Yeah it's free. I forgot where I got it though. I think it was Pedro who gave me the link.
POI2GO is a software that searches for POIs. POIEdit is the program you need to compile all the locations and save it as a .ov2 file for TT to read.
I just downloaded the POI2GO but the software is called MyPOIMaker, is that correct?I've only done BC, YT, NWT... oye lol.
The problem with Wal-Mart is that they love to build on new land and build new roads. This means neither TeleAtlas (TT) nor Navteq (Google Maps) have it so I can't "add" the Wal-Mart location cause neither software can find it! lol
www.walmart.ca is your friend hahaI can do this. Im not familar with Canada.
If I had a text or excel file with all the major cities and locations, this would be easier for me to make all POIs for Canada.
Well, you could search for my thread on custom POIs.You guys are awesome.
Is there any tutorials on this site on how to create POIs? I can try and help contribute to the site.
Thanks, will give it a try.Well, you could search for my thread on custom POIs.
It's quite simple. Just download POIEdit (at www.poiedit.com.
Once you have the program, click "Create new POI"
then click "new entry". Whatever you type in that box will be shown on the TT display. After adding the coordinates, you're done!
Save it as a .ov2 file and put it in your USA_and_Canada folder.
Yeah that would be sweet if you could.Easier way ? Plagiarism !
I use MS Streets & Trips , import POI in other formats (made by others), convert them to OV2.
If you want I can post Canada Walmarts for you.
I am interested in RVing so my POI collections consist of only these (Walmarts, TruckStops, Rest Areas , WiFi...).
