I downloaded the GPX file, and using GPSBabel was able to convert it
to a format acceptable for my Garmin iQue. When doing that, I ended up with
less than 500 restaurants; haven't more than 1100 been reviewed here? Did
I lose some in the conversion, or is the file still growing?

Thanks for a great tool,

Vince

    You should end up with around 1,000 restaurants. I wonder if you would get similar results converting the .csv file.

      Hello everyone. I just joined this site and I've been reading the forums here. I really enjoy this place. I also downloaded the restaraunts to my Garmin Nuvi. One question. How often are the restaraunts are updated?

        The restaurant POI files are updated at least once a week.

          I just downloaded the .csv file and opened it in Excel. It only seems to have 440 entries. Is this correct ???

            Awesome! I just bought a Garmin StreetPilot C550 a little more than a month ago and have been working on making my own POI .csv file with Georgia Meat and 3's, southern cookin buffets, BBQ spots, etc and got to thinking that it'd be a great idea for Roadfood.com to integrate GPS technology capabilities into their website by providing .csv files for restaurants. Did a search and found this thread. Can't wait to download and try it out. Never got around to signing up for Insider access, but I definitely will now ($19.95 a year for full access!). Thanks for the hard work it must've taken to work on this.

              Stephan: I am trying to load the POI on my new Garmin c330. There may be an error. Look at cell A442. Is there supposed to be 2 minus signs making the number positive?

                Good catch. Thanks, I just made the fix.
