    If its long and complicated can you give him a shout here - http://www.poiedit.com/contact.htm ?

    BIG Thanks

    I don't have specific of the file, I just have some guidelines and then I proceeded with attempts... However, there are more than just one dat format (I found 5 different formats).

    I am coding an alternative program different from poiedit, look on my website, so I won't give around my code. However I'll implement the possibility to autoupdate poi files as soon as I finish GaroNav (I will release it in the next days, stay tuned).

    Does this only show up the POI's when looking in my favourites folder? They only show up there and not in the normal POI folder is that normal?


    Cheers,

    Yep, but lists them in order of distance from your current location.

    Theres bug in extraPOI

    it is supposed to work with .CSV .DAT files right? but it doesnt. Correct behavior can only be observed with .ov2 files.

    I needed to do tests with POI thats easy for human to input. So i typed CSV file by hand... however that didnt work in extraPOI like it was supposed to. So i convert hand written file with your POIconverter to .DAT, that didnt work either. But when i convert same original hand written file with your converter to .ov2 file extraPOI plugin works like it is supposed to!

    Problem is that .CSV .DAT file contained POIs appear correctly on favorites (even distance is counted like it should be) but when u look additional information from these favorites, u noticed that lat and lon values both appear to be zero, which also causes that these POIs can't appear on map or u can't ruote to them.


    Because of this goddamn bug... i lost quite a bit of time when pondering around it... so i would be really grateful if u could give me info about .DAT (destinator) POI format... I mean if u dont... ill find it out anyhow... u could just save bit of my time....


    BTW great software.

    Ok, im too lazy to registered the site u mentioned...

    But i did repeated test, this time not with file written by me, but .ov2 file downloaded from net (swedish gasoline stations). And if u feed it to garos extraPOI as it is (as .ov2 file) everything works fine, but if u before that use garos POIedit to convert it to .dat file... results are same as in my tests with my own file.
