    This GPS is a Tom Tom.

  • ghelfer Apr 07, 2008

    I tried what was suggested prior to contacting you.

  • ghelfer Apr 13, 2008

    not sure what else I can tell you. the unit does not have 'churches' loaded as POI's

  • ghelfer Apr 13, 2008

    Tom Tom ONE XLS is a factory sealed unit. Battery is not accessible without voiding warranty.

  • ghelfer Apr 13, 2008

    not churches, even if I put in the name or address they are not found.

  • ghelfer Apr 13, 2008

    Ser71 You replied to me..."The Points of Interest (POI) database consists of two files: An OV2 file, which contains the POI's information and a BMP file."

    How do I access these POI's? The icon/symbols you have on these 5 steps or (boxes with a red X inside) do not do anything and/or are not linked.?

My roof is in desperate need of repair. My problem is I don`t have the money to get it repaired. I am a senior citizen on a pension and it is very hard to save the money needed to repair it. Help!


Just a thought. sometimes there are groups out there who help people. Even some men's groups at different churches. if you attend a church ask your pastor or priest if there is help even if they pay and have to get a contractor. I used to be part of a group years ago. Not able to do any more.

Gas and electric bills


3 to 4 loads of laundry seems like an awful lot for an elderly couple but if you call your local churches and even your electric company they usually have or know of programs to help the elderly. They may even know of government assistance programs that they may be eligible for.

Having problems with poi loader cant find csv file to be able to download files.unit is a garmin c31o


Here's how you get custom POI files on a Nuvi:

1. Download and install Garmin's POI Loader.

2. Create a folder on your computer, suggest Desktop, with a name like "Custom POIs". The name and location doesn't matter but you have to remember what it's called and where it is.

3. Go online and look for 3rd party POI files. Places like www.poi-factory.com have dozens if not hundreds of files.

4. Select ones you want on your gps to download. Make sure you are getting the files in the correct format. Newer Nuvis use *.csv files. Not sure if the C310 does. Download your POI files into the folder you created.

5. Plug your USB cable into the GPS and your computer. Wait until the driver finishes loading.

6. Run POI Loader and follow the instructions until you get to a screen asking for location of POI files. Point it towards the folder you created. Next tell it to load the POI files. After a few seconds it should give you a message "XXXX data points successfully loaded".

You should now be able to go to POI/Extras screen and see "Custom POI Files". Open that up and your custom POIs should be there.
