Format of POI file
« on: November 30, 2010, 21:56:57 »
How should the data in the POI file be formatted? And what naming should the file have?

Hi,
  format used for POI holding is SQLite database. Would you like to know format of this? If you have kml or gps files, you should import them directly. If you want to attach existing database in SQLite format, this is not simple to do. But I should write some manual if you really need :) Let me know what exactly do you want ...

Tried to upload GPX file and it worked flawlessly.

This was just what I needed.

I saw not all tags are being used, can you provide a list of the ones Locus is extracting?

Hmmm,
  I'm using as much as I know ...
  so, if you have in your gpx file any tags that you mean, are not used in Locus, send me on email sample file with some description which tags are missing and I'm sure that I will do something with it ;)
