As Paul said, not quite sure what you mean.

But the lines in the file should be as follows:

;Longitude,Latitude,Name
-1.78041,53.60094,"Your Info Here"

or

-1.78041,53.60094,"Your Info Here","Second Info Line "

If you have alerts set then the poi will warn you and the "Your Info Here" will display on the screen.

If you called the saved file:

yourinfo.csv

then you need an icon with the same name, but saved with the .gif format:

yourinfo.gif

You then use PoiLoader as normal. But remember that you need to load ALL of your custom poi's at the same time as PoiLoader will remove any existing ones. So always put them in one folder to reload to your Garmin.

Hope that helps and makes sense to you Laughing
