Not to imply that a Volkswagen isn't the most reliable car on the roas but it would be handy to know where the dealers (service) are. You know, I might want to just say HI.

Mostly interested in Arizona, California.

Thanks!
:D

Oh yes... Sorry. Personally, I want to cover the path between Phoenix and L.A. I'm not sure how to get a list of VW dealers. I am willing to research and gather addresses if someone can make them into POIs. I'd even make the POIs if I knew how to do it on a computer.

Here are some target cities...

Phoenix
Scottsdale
Glendale
Mesa

Palm Springs area

Riverside
Pamona
Anaheim
Long Beach
Los Angeles
Santa Monica
Glendale
Burbank
Northridge


Thanks!

First, Thanks JimT!

But... the VW icon doesn't appear on the locations. It's a red box. I think I need to change the filename of the icon to exactly match the data file. Will do in a sec.

With full appreciation for JimT's work...

I have been toying around with learning to make these POI files. I used this VW file as a base. I deleted a bunch of the duplicates and listings that weren't dealerships.

I know it was some sort of import but I don't know how it's done? I also fooled around with getting the associated phone number to appear on the 720 screen but I don't know how you get the "details" button to come up. Unless there is some automated way to get those phone numbers in the right format, I can see it would be very tedious.

I'm learning!

(all credit for the attached POI file goes to JimT)

Oh - and I changed the filenames so they match - the icon will appear.
