lat and long coordinates are correct. i think it doesn´t work cos all POI´s have the same name. i´ll try with different names.

edit: this didn´t help... maybe i should create new menu instead of using police departments. wasted a lot of DVDs.

Actually I did several dvd using POI Maker but they are not working properly. The bug is that I see the POIs with appropriate coordinates and distance but I do not see the details. Probably there is a problem with .url file. I thougt it was because I actually made some changes to the Kiwj excel sheet, so I made another dvd with the orginal POImaker without any change. Unfortunately the result did not change. Then I also made another dvd with .idx files orginated by POImaker and .url files originated by asc2mk4_hig..well, it worked!!!
I want to resolve the issue of the url but so far I donot know where to look..

it´s not working. i am done with this. last thing i tried is to enter missing _´s at the first line of .idx and .url, but still nothing. it´s strange that some original .idx/.url files have 1 _ some have 2 or 4 _ and some have none. last DVD i burned had 310 POI´s, names were numbered xxx1-310 and it could only find POI´s with numbers 220 and 22. from total 310 it found 18 and they were all 220 or 22.... (and 6000km away). i am sure i did everything correct.

usually I use asc2mk4_high or asc2idxurl_mk4 and I never had any problem. Fast and easy. But I want to have PI maker working

well...I have been trying many many times and burned several DVDs. the last one without any changes to POI Maker except - of course - of POIs data.
Result: same : I see POIs but I do not have the "link"...
THis does not happen with other software...
What is the fuc...ing problem the damn POI maker has???

i got my POI´s working under separate menu i made. did idx with asc2idxurl and url with POI Maker (idx files were different with POI Maker and asc2idxurl). all info and links are working. only thing what didn´t work was POI icons cos i had it changed (used ms paint to add some colour, what program to use if i want to change the look of original POI? or is it possible?)

As already said I did the same. At this point I am sorry to say that POI maker is not working. It is a pity as it was a big effort from kiwj.
It is a non sense using two programs to have the dvd working. But I woould like to understand where the problem is....
To change icon you have to replace the image file under icons folder. Easy and simple...

you have to append the xxx.lsc file of the language you are using.
BTW I am not using any more POI maker. It does not work.
I stay with asc2mk4_high.

i know it, i have these lines in ENG.lsc

ICONDSC 104 G508-G524-S028/ICONS/NAVI0X/POI_POLK.PNG+G539-I1+G523-I2+G522-I1+G521-I2!
ICONDSC 104 G508-G524-S024/ICONS/RR/POI_POLK.PNG+G539-I0+G523-I2+G522-I1+G521-I2!

and i have POI_POLK.PNG (copy and rename of original POI_POLICE.PNG) in both of these folders. it still doesn´t show me POI´s on screen... i wonder what those S028/S024 mean? these values are not the same for all ICONDSC lines.
