    It would be nice if GoC posted what changes had been made to the poi importing so we would have an idea of what was wrong before and what has been fixed.

    Nice work finding those sites. If they still don't work, thenit probably wouldnt be too hard to write a custom script to provide just what as needs. It should be the same as ms mappoint, though.

    The import format is exactly the same. The fixes were mostly with the database they got copied into failing because of one of a couple errors. The UI was also simplified so that the imported pois shows up on the main poin page rather then the custom type selection module.

    Alot of online poi formats just seems to have latitude, longitude, name, and description. StreetDeck currently requires the description to be broken down into a complete address so they are probably not going to import correctly. We will probably support a a simpler format in the future, but right now its not on the road map.

    As long as your file has a latitude and longitude in the 7th and 8th fields, the import should work.

    Nope, and likely won't for a while. Leaving for a short vacation later this morning, then back to school for me.

    Good luck if you try it yourself!

    So, a few updates later and 7 months time...has anyone been able to import/update POI? I have yet to try, but I've been finding my POI becoming more and more out of date and with the uncertainty of how the future release of Mappoint 2009 will play with SD I'd like to be able to find a local Chinese food restaurant a little easier (regardless of how bad the Chinese food is here in MD).

    POI's are currently being worked on. As for mappoint, yes you can load/reload, but if streetdeck slows considerably, read over this thread.

    My opinion is my own.

    Are you saying that they are currently working or a year later they still aren't working but being looked into? As for boot time, that's never been a problem and I'd like to keep it that way:0 [hence why I asked before fiddling with files]

    I'm assuming that this is the existing digimod that froalskinner was referring to that he updated [posted on the wiki] Can't wait to see it!
