sorry for a high frequency of my messages, still saying "unable to...", but
I am still a newbie to LoadStone GPS and haven't come across any written
comments on my issues yet. So what next?
I tried to generate a database import file via the POI Converter on the
LoadStone GPS website and all went OK. First, I prepared a CSV file, split
into multiple parts as I do have a 30000 POIs database from the Czech
Republic and would like to use it. As descriptions contain non-english
characters, I converted the CSV file to UTF-8 prior to converting. Then I
ran the POI Converter and downloaded a TXT file. Then I placed it into the
ImportExport folder and tried to import it into the default and my own
database, no luck either. It randomly throws an error message saying
something like "abort importing on line xxxx, possibly corrupted file". The
line number is quite random, sometimes it is able to complete only 5%,
sometimes 20%, but I have never managed to end up with a complete database
yet. What might be the problem? I even tried to mute MobileSpeak or set a
screensaver delay to 30 minutes, should it cause a problem. Any ideas?
Using LoadStone GPS 0.69 with Nokia 6681 and MobileSpeak 2.03.
