MB POI Loader Support - Configuration


When you start using MB POI Loader you need to do some initial configuration first.
Launch MB POI Loader which and click on the settings icon:



This will bring up the Settings Dialog:


 
General Settings

  • POI Limit
    Here you can set the maximum number of POI's that you want in your POI file.
    It's recommended to leave this number set to the default value (30.000).
    NOTE:
    The maximum amount of POI's in the navigation system is currently (year 2012) 30.000 POI's. This is likely to change in future updates of the navigation software.
    If you cross this limit, then the navigation system will simply ignore your POI file and you won't see any of your POI's. This limit applies to all POI's, regardless of how you organise them in categories.
     
  • Category:
    This name will be used to store your POI's. In the navigation system you'll see this name under the POI Category names to manage your POI's.
     
  • POI Icon:
    This is the icon to be used to mark the speed cameras on the map.
    NOTE:
    The icon and category name are linked. If you want to use different icons for different types of cameras, you need to generate multiple files that use a different category name and icon, and then merge them together in the end.
     
  • POI Level:
    This is the type of notification you get for the speed cameras.
    Information will only display the camera on the map.
    Warning will highlight the camera on the map when you approach it.
    In 2013 models and later this will also give an audible warning, which works independent of the driving direction. Audible warnings will be given when you approach the POI in a specific perimeter.
     
  • POI Time:
    This is the amount of time before you reach the camera, when the navigation system will warn you for the camera (when selecting Warning as the POI Level).


Calculator
This screen allows you to quickly calculate the number of cameras in a .kml or .gpx file, to know if it exceeds the hard limit of the navigation system.

Merger
This screen allows you to merge two .GPX files to a single .GPX file. Use this if you want to convert multiple countries one by one, and then merge them all together to one .GPX file.

Input Specific Settings
Some input sources have a particular syntax, which requires additional settings during the conversion process. Under this item you will find all sources that allow additional configuration.

SCDB.info
The .kml input file uses a coded type name for each type of camera.
This screen allows you to convert these to a readible name for use in the navigation system. The default listing here should be sufficient, but you can add/remove/edit items if desired.

CSV
If you want to import a CSV file, then make sure to configure the settings here.
In this screen you can specify which columns your input file contains. Check or uncheck the columns to put them in the correct order.
If you have a column that is not listed in the options, then click on "Add SKIP column" to add a dummy column to ignore during the converting process.
To start from scratch, click on "Clear All" to start with an empty syntax.
Make sure to specify the correct seperator symbol! Otherwise the import will not recognize the different values.
And as a last option you can specify if the first line of your input CSV file is one that describes the columns.
If you are not able to figure out the correct settings, just contact us and we will check how to configure the settings together.
