    Blaine/Surry - same as Pac Hwy, I added to name

    Added Osoyoos/Oroville, Laurier/Cascade, and Sumas/Abbotsford

    I will E-Mail you the new spreadsheets. You might want to verify the Lat/Long to make sure I got the right lanes.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Mark, not sure if these have been mentioned, but I'll list some slightly annoying bugs that I've noticed:

    After the message about changing time zones, the clock displays (current time and ETA) take anywhere from 1-3 minutes to change to the correct times.

    Where there is a separate truck speed limit along the route, the ETA calculation does not take that truck limit into account, but instead uses the car speed limit to calculate ETA even in truck mode.

    Where there is a separate truck speed limit, say 50mph for trucks and 60 for cars, the 'speed limit reduced ahead' announcement is made when the car speed limit drops to 50 even when the GPS is in truck mode. This should not happen, as the truck limit is already 50.

    Feature request: Speed limit INCREASE announcement.

    That is all!
     
    Mark Kling, mattbnr and lovesthedrive Thank this.

    Start Button/Control Panel/Appearance and Personalization/Folder Options/Show Hidden files and folders/View tab - about half way down click on Show hidden files, folders, and drives.

    Close out Control Panel.

    Start Button/Computers/C: drive - Scroll down to Users/Owner or your name/AppData/Local/RNDDock/ComponentCache/ Delete the "Component_0" folder.

    Connect TND, Start Dock and then hit update again.

    If you do have any corrupt files in the Cache folder this will download clean files again.

    It is always suggested to be on High Speed internet or a 4g network.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    On the file you send me... Long/Lat. Long has to be the first column.

    Delete row 1 - no need for header information.

    If a column contains no information then delete that column.

    This is the way your .csv should look.

    On a side note - POI-Factory does have the option to save the file in RM format.

    If you have any issues with POI-Factory not converting correctly let me know. I am in communications with the site folks there. I also have a presence on the RM discussion forum.


    Thanks,
    Mark

    I am on POI Factory's site and signed in and all I see is CSV or TomTom

    I downloaded the CSV files and that's how they came. so they apparently aren't formatted properly.

    two questions Mark...

    this screenshot is of the Werner fuel network CSV
    [​IMG]

    in your image example, you didn't include the name of said location (i.e. Love's, Petro, or Werner Dallas Terminal).

    1.) what do I need to do to add in the name of the location in my csv file?
    2.) does the zip code need to be in there?
