    I was trying to search the forums for postings regarding creating your own POIs via csv and converting to ov2 files... the search engine wont search for 3 letter words! Is there a FAQ around?
    I actually was trying to use someone else's POIs and had some oddities, so I was looking for a more comprehensive FAQ.

    Using this, the CSV file wasn't processing the phone number...
    CSV to OV2 conversion tool - online POI data tools from GPS Data Team

    Thanks

    Have a look at Richards web site Here where he has written a number of applications for changing POI data between different formats - Mike

    It's annoying that the software used on this forum requires a 4 character minimum for search.

    One workaround is to use google. For example, you can search google for:

    poi site:www.tomtomforums.com

    and it will give you all posts wth "poi" on this forum
