  • Poi DAT Format

    For NinjaMonkey:

    I want to create an utility to convert ov2 (TomTom Poi) into dat format. I see that you add the "import" function for speed camera cvs; so you may know how the dat format is. Can you post something? Maybe the piece of code that create the dat file.

    Thanks a lot,

          Dear garo Ok, for this.. i've tried your soft. and is all ok!! Thanls!! 2 little questions:

          1) According to you, putting many .ini of favorites (es. many categories of fuel stations, hospitals.. etc then i mean the primary categories that contain the single places), if they are not selected (for viewing) in favs page, weight down and slow down MM the same?

          2) Do you know how to import the BMP personalized images for Favs? i have tried everything!! i have done the same size (16x16x24bit) nothing! called it the same name of .ini, nothing I have seen too that, when i open MM and i see in Favs and to choose an image, the personal image isn't in favs and when i close the program and i see in favs dir, the small images there isn't any more and, with the same name, there is now a random image with the same name of bmp duplicated..

          Can you help me?

          Thanks again!!

            Hi!
            1) No, they slow down MM only when you want to navigate towards them... I mean, it is very slow when the list of POI appears on the screen, because MM don't "select" near POI, but all of them.

            2) I didn't use .ini... I just put the .dat file in the favorites folder and the corresponding .bmp (with the same name). Furthermore, I used bigger bmp files and they worked fine!

            Bye!

              Sorry garo!! i have mistaken.. i meant ".dat", no ".ini" sorry!
              Well, i put in favs dir .dat and .bmp with the same name but.. i can't see the bmp images in MM and choose it what kind of problem might be?
              Thanks and bye!!

                For Bmp not correctly visualized in the page of favs, i've seen that, if i use a name that begins with letters near firsts letter (es. "A", "B" .. i don't know within letter but i know that "E" is ok but just "I" is not correctly visualiz.)..

                And so, i've renamed all Favs added with this criterion : all names begin so (es.) "- Hotel" "- Restaurant"... .of course, .dat and .bmp must have the same name In this way, seem work

                Bye all!
