Hi, First post, Wahoooo

TTG500 very cool kit.

The POIs built in have phone numbers in them, petrol/train stations, to see them Menu>Mobile phone>Call>POI> pick one and call it...

My POIs dont, I have tryed lots of things but

Cannot get to the built in train stations POI, Where is it? so I can pull it appart and see how its done?

POIEdit>export CSV, Then save the Edited CSV to OV2 using POIEdit... it exports 4 columns A and B the same, so assumed one of these were the feild but its not???

Any Ideas.
Thanks for your help.

Thanks to Oldboy

Just to make clear for everyone

to create a POI with a phone number that you can call from the ttg500 and ttg700, maybe others...

I created a POI on the ttg500
Then used POItools,'dumpov2.exe'
Added the phone numbers to the end of each entry in the dumped txt file
e.g. -1.00000, 52.00000, "The Red Lion Inn>441625123456"
then rebuilt the POI using 'makeov2.exe'

Thanks for all your help

Sparki...
