If the iPhone is jailbroke then it might be possible, otherwise forget it - Mike

I've managed to do it.
dont know how he he.
1st of all i got the ov2 file & used www.POIeditor.com & converted it into a Navman csv file.
I opened up the csv file with excel & begin editing the names.
i.e. N154 was "N154" so i got rid of the " ".
I then had to have at the top of the page Longitdue/latitude/name (it would not work without them at the top).
I then used iphonebrowser and then went [root]-user-applications-copilot hexcode (which might be different for all over users ???)copilot-documents-EU-save & then i put one of my csv files into save & closed the program.
booted up copilot which started to go on about new POI being installed from which i let me create a new category & such and walah just like magic it worked.

EDIT - the file name of the csv must be not have any capital letters

EDIT again - it looks like you can only create 1 custom category for POI.
I've tried to add a 2nd and its not having it.

edit again - you can have more then 1 category, you have to make sure that you have longitude, latitude & name & address at the top of your excel rows

I used the above from trwev as a guide but did the following.

Downloaded Co-pilot 7 single file that is .csv files x2
then copied them to the location above.
turned on copilot and that imports the csv file.
but then you need to exit and reload copilot to import the other csv file.
Copilot seems to import 1 file at a time and needs a restart.
