I just followed the instructions and thought those were the two files to use. I never converted, but just copied the ones in the download?

Did I miss something?

Just looking around at other sites and https://www.scdb.info/en/plugin-mercedes-comand-online/ says "** no support for NTG 5.5 units in new Mercedes E-Class (W213)" for the .gpx format. Sad

GPX probably not. Some inbuilt Garmin based Navs now require you to have pre-converted them to GPI, which requires POILoader.

Worth investigating.

How do I know whether I need to use POI Loader or gpx files which you download from these websites?

I downloaded the Great Britain GPX package from speedcamupdates.com for 7.99eur.

I have an April 2016 GLA with Comand Online. I *think* it's Command NTG 5.5.

I formatted my sd card to FAT32, created a folder called PersonalPOI, added multiple gpx files for Great Britain only but it's stuck at importing data (process may take several minutes).

Can someone please help?

Did I download a gpx package from a dodgy website perhaps?

Thanks,
Andreas

All done...

After I realised that there should be only the 2 GPX files in the 'PersonalPOI' file.....

Just tried a test set of data from the free POI's and it worked in my car (2017 SL) however, I'm unsure which version of Comand I have.

Will be subscribing and getting the cameras....

Nemesis1 did a lot of work on his Merc Nav using my CSV to GPX Converter. He found that the warning text needed to be capitals for it work and some elements/specjal characters needed removing.

I included a text change screen in the Converter to speed this up.

After a couple of attempts I've just managed to get the cameras up and running on Comand Online version NTG 5.1

Thanks to Ellick and wartklin for your instructions.

What made the difference for me was to download and unpack the database contents onto my desktop, THEN copy just the two gpx files onto a freshly formatted (FAT32) SD card.

On the first attempt, when I downloaded the database straight onto the SD card, unpacked it and deleted the unnecessary files, it failed.

I hope this clarification helps someone.
