It's Windows software that requires user input to function. We run on Linux servers... Even with a Linux version of the software it'd be near-on impossible due to the user-input required.

Lets be honest.
Speedcams we are downloading several times per year.
POIs?
Hmmm....
I'd say that effort to convert it manually once per year is acceptable effort...
Of course my point of view is not neutral, bcs in my case, hotels and supermarkets are not jumping acrocc the country several times per week.. Wink

Am I going blind? I can't find it in the downloads Sad It's not in 'Sygic Aura' or 'Other-CSV' and there isn't a category just 'CSV'

As such the best I can do is do the csv with the header which would need manually rupifying.

thanks for the explanation. I will email them and ask for their help.

if you don't use POIs you may not appreciate it. I tried tonavigate to carlisle ccrematorium last week. The Google poi is in the wrong place so I came to pgpsw
Several times a a year I go to new golf courses, and and whilst they do not change the locations get corrected. Same with national Trust sites. Bird watching sites are added. Many of the original uploads seem to have been postcode based and hence wrong. I as pgpsw users visit and do the right thing by updating the , the poi download becomes better. So if there re is a later date, I download the latest.
For every file, and I had to open it in notepad++, change the first in each and save it. then I have to use the rupi converter. Ifpgpsw can cut out the vvery manual amendment of each file that is why there are computers. If they can do the rupi directly even better. Why do somethingmanually that a computer can do error free every time?
Hope that explains it.

Two things:
1. It may be easier to do on Windows based machine than on the Linux based server;
2. You are absolutely right that is something can be done automatically, why should we do it manually?

As soon as you could publish the script doing that, all can benefit, so do not hesitate Very Happy

Remember not to mix countries. Apparently a rupi file cannot contain POIs for more than a single country.

This is correct, though I had never thought of combining countries when downloading. You have to put the rupi and the bmp in the maps folder, and on Android, in a sub folder (you may have to create) called Import. Just done it for mine and on opening Sygic, it auto imports the new POIs (after asking politely!).

Sygic says it needs 8 or 32 bit image files, and now suggests bigger 100x100 images, whereas many of those on PGPSW are 24 bit and only 22x22.

In my previous version Sygic Mobile Maps 10, using the wrong icons crashed the programme. Today, on my Nexus 4, it just seems to import them and not bother. Smile I converted them a couple of years ago using Paint.net, and have done the same today in Irfanview, but then tried to just use a bmp as downloaded, and it worked. The small icons look a bit blurred, but they work.Smile

Next I am going to try out the new beta version of Sygic.

So how do we import the European cameras? Aren't they just all countries bundled together? I assumed the import facility put them in the correct country. Anybody actually managed to do that in Sygic?

Fellwalker - what Beta version??

Not sure to be honest! We don't have a method of splitting out individual countries and I've only just discovered that Sygic needs it this way...
