    Help wanted with Primo poi (or lack of)

    Hi everyone am hoping that someone will help an old senile codger

    Using

    Igo Primo 8.5.11.155811
    Teleatlas UK 2010.06 maps in Content-Map
    Teleatlas UK 2010.06 poi in content-poi
    My download poi in content-userdata-poi (have kix,kml,kns & kst files )
    My download bmp in content-userdata-usericon

    kmlpoi in data.zip deleted

    sys.txt includes

    [folders]
    kmlpoi="storage card\primo\content\userdata\poi"
    kmlicon="storage card\primo\content\userdata\usericon"
    poi="storage card\primo\content\userdata\poi"

    Problem is can't see poi (ta or mine) on

    1. Maps
    2. menu find - find places ( all greyed out )
    3. menu more settings map place markers (complete blank no poi categories at all )

    Speed cams icons work fine

    Any one any ideas please because I have run out

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Keith

    I had similar issue with Primo POIs the poi files that come with maps are stored in the folder you stated \primo\content\poi
    speedcameras in the speedcam folder, user pois are stored in a file called user.upoi in folder \primo\save. I found the easiest way
    to create, edit, name, import and generally manipulate these pois was to use a program called User.UPOI Editor its available
    from references in the sys.txt actually point to incorrect places unless you are storing
    or sharing maps and pois with igo8 you dont need to specify folders in sys.txt, my sys.txt entry is below as i have primo on sd card
    with igo in my gps flash memory hence the need for my additions to primo sys.txt as below.

    [folders]
    maps="../../../NandFlash/iGo8/content/map"
    poi="../../../NandFlash/iGo8/content/poi"
    buildings="../../../NandFlash/iGo8/content/building"
    dem="../../../NandFlash/iGo8/content/dem"
    has_secondary_root=1

    hope this helps ive tried to explain as best i could feel free to ask for clarification if needed

    Hi Terry

    Many thanks for your reply which is understood and will delete folder options in sys.txt.

    Yes I have upoi explorer but am having problems with the icons.

    I have tried copy the upoi files from program folder and inserted into same folders in Branding.zip crashes when I select poi icon in manage poi

    I have tried copy the upoi files from program folder and inserted into same folders in data.zip crashes when I select poi icon in manage poi

    Have tried changing branding.zip only, data.zip only and both together always with same result.

    If I select icon from explorer the name shows in user.upoi but do not get icon on map when I run igo.

    Do you get the icons selected from explorer showing on your map?

    Any suggestions welcome

    Thanks again

    Keith
