    Advanced Nuvi Macro

    Hi Steve - be sure to put your custom icons in ....gsakTemp, they will need to be named the same as ones created by the macro. I have tried to put my custom icons in Temp, but have experienced that this folder gets empty ??

    Advanced Nuvi Macro

    I have the same experience, so what I do, is to run the macro without disabling the built-in icons. Also, I do not run the POILoader in silent mode. So, when the macro in finished, I replace the icon bitmap files in the folder created under POI_Loader folder, and then I run POILoder. Your own icons must have the the same filename as the built-in's.

    I cannot duplicate this. Please test by sending one owned cache to a new database, run the macro with owned not selected and see if any gpx file is generated in the new database folder. POI Loader could be loading them from another gpx file or you may have multiple .gpi files on your GPSr. What I did as a test right now, was to replace "Catch" with my GC ID, 1183952, in the POI Export window, "Owned by (ID)", and now I can not see my placed caches. I will do some more tests, but this looks great. THANKS

    Advanced Nuvi Macro

    I have just upgraded to 4.3.1, and all my owned/placed caches is still in the list of POIs, and on the map. I have not tested the alert yet.

    Version 4.3 worked on first attempt here, but caches placed by me are still shown on the map and are alerted. (Nuvi 760) "Include Owned Caches ?" are not ticked.

    I have just tested the macro with spoiler images on the Oregon 300, and, as for the Colorado, there is now "Image" button. Can you post a screenshot of the colorado "image" button? It doesn't seem to work for me. What firmware are you running on the colorado? One other thing who did you order your Orergon 300 through? Every site I have seen them on is all pre-orders. Sorry, there was a type in my last post, "now" should be "NO". The Oregon 300 has been available in all GPS shops here in Norway, since July 18.

    Upgrading to 4.1.2, the alert audio level is now equal to the navigation guide audio, and it sounds pefect in my car.

    Possibly in a future version. I think the way I will be using the POIs from this excellent macro, is that I will read the cache description in GSAK or online either before I go caching, or when I am to log the cache when returning home. When out caching, what I normally looks for first, is the hint, and if I don't find the cache, I read the description, to find info that may useful to find the cache. Maybe it is only me that is caching this way ?

    goto tools, options and add those characters to characters to keep for smart names. You may have to upgrade gsak to the latest version for this to work correctly - there was some discussion of this over in the Pilot's thread I have always had thoose characters to keep set as this: The Nordic characters works when I use the GarminCsvPoiExport macro...

    This is definitely working maybe POIL picked up the wrong file? No, I am sure that POIL picks up the right file, so I must be doing something else wrong. All my own caches is still found on the map, and in the POI list. Here is my settings: "All" is my database in GSAK.

    Advanced Nuvi Macro

    Great jjreds, I really look forward for the next release Btw, since I upgraded the Nuvi 760 with SW 3.10 here the other day, the freeze and turn-off problem seems to be more frequent.
  13. Nordic Letters is not shown right After the upgrade, the Nordic letters, e.g. Æ, Ø and Å (æ, ø and å) is not shown right in the automatic generated email to owner of a listing. It is also wrong in the Groundspeak Weekly Notification mail. Examples (added space between & and # for the letter code to be shown here on the forum): ø are shown as: & #248; å are shown as: & #229; æ are shown as: & #230;

    Advanced Nuvi Macro

    Great Macro - Nuvi 760 User Report I have used this macro a few weeks, also last week when on holiday in Tuscany, Italy. Yesterday, I upgraded to V4.1 (will upgrade and test 4.1.1 today), and here is what I can comment so far: The build in icons is all to small for my 50+ eyes, so I like to use my own 24x24 with bright green background (to improve visibility on the map). Why is the Child waypoint icons the same as the parent icon. I think it is better to have the "right" icons for e.g. Parking, Reference Point, Trailhead and so on.. I choosed not to show my own caches, but they are all shown and alerted. The alert audio "bell" is all to loud compared to the navigation audio. My wife has started to complain about the audio Is there other audio files easily available. What would be nice, is to choose icon types and audio file for each type of cache (19 ?) Regarding the 7xx Garmin problem, what I have noticed, is that if I turn on the Nuvi at a location where there is one or more caches within the alert distance set in the macro, the 760 freezes or turns itself off about 2 out of 3 times. Also, when driving towards an area with several caches (or child waypoints) at the same distance, the 760 map freezes, and the GPS have to be restarted. Another Issue is that the Nordic letters e.g. Æ, Ø and Å is missing in the Geocache Name, but it is correct in the name left to the Go! (Norwegian: Kjør!) as shown in this screen shots (click for full size): A few more things: Is it possible to implement an option to have the Hint before the Description ? Maybe not possible, but what I would like, is to have different Alert Distance in areas with high cache density, like in the little town of Oslo, where we now have more than 500 caches, while on the countryside, it may be a very long distance between caches. Also, an Alert Distance setting pr cache type would be useful.

    Icons

    First of all, thanks for a great Macro, that works fine on my 760 as long as I do not tick "Include Found caches?", Unavailable/Archived caches?" or "IncludePlaced caches?". If one or more are ticked, the 760 turns off as soon as "Wiew Map" is pushed. But, what I see, is that all child waypoints to a cache has the same icon as the parent waypoint, and I find that a bit confusing. I have modified all Geocache related icons to 24 x 24 with bright green background to make it easier for a 50+ year eye to see it on the map. . I like to use all this icons with this macro, including Parking Area, Reference Point and so on. Is there a way to edit the macro so that the right icon is shown on the map on child waypoints ?
