Is converting .txt, .csv or .ov2 files to .wpt files possible?
Because there's some really cool POI on http://www.pocketgpsworld.com/tomtompoi.php but they are in .ov2 for tomtom solfware, and I would like to put them straight onto my unit.

Thanks, Wook

I use a combination of 2 apps. First I use POIedit to convert the .ov2 files to .GPX files. Then I use GSAK to load the GPX file, from here I can export Mapsend waypoint files or even manipulate the list with filters and transfer the results directly to my MeriGold. The updated GSAK can also now export direct to .ov2 files.
POIedit can be found here: http://www.dnote.nl/pda/poi/PoiEdit/ and GSAK is here: http://gsak.net/ HTH

What is the format of a Magellan .wpt file? If you can tell me then I could add it to my POIConverter program. You would then be able to go straight from .csv and .ov2 to .wpt. Anyway have a look on the Program page of my website http://rjdavies.usrs.btopenworld.com for POIConverter.
