My advice would be to post in the thread I gave a link to. This way everyone who took part in that thread will get an email notification of a new post. At least one of those participants has the answer you need.
Use the "like" tab too and you will be more popular and attractive to responders :xlaugh:

darren if the folder you need is not in the sat nav then you cannot just add the folder it wont work
mine has sites already installed so check your as well
put in a destination say benidorm once the sat nav finds it and starts then click search then custom search
then pick at your destination
then click accommodation then campsites see how many come up if any i have never had to add poi

As you get to know other members it will become apparent who is adept at what and I am priviledged to get my Cinkynav sorted by another member for me. It would not be fair of me to say who as that may place a burden that is not welcomed. I would make all posts in the other thread that has a stronger subscription base and more likely for the clever folk to help

This is the text from POI Adding Custom. Hope it helps.
Connect the satnav device to computer with the USB Cable and navigate to IGO9>Primo>CONTENT

If a folder named “Userdata” does not exist create one; the satnav looks in here to load custom poi’s information.
Navigate inside the “Userdata” folder and create two folders (if they do not already exist) named “POI” and “Usericon”

Save the *.kml files into “POI” Folder and the corresponding user icons into “Usericon” folder.
NOTE: For the user icons to be displayed with the poi’s you will also need to edit the *.kml file
Navigate to IGO9/Primo/CONTENT/Userdata/POI
Open the .kml file in Notepad, the heading of the document will look similar to this <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <kml xmlns="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.1"> <Document>
Immediately after <Document> insert the following, including all the HTML symbols and text: (substitute xxx with the name of your *.kml file and your *.bmp icon) <name>xxx.kml</name> <metadata><igoicon><filename>xxx.bmp</filename></igoicon></metadata>
The edited file header should now look like this
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <kml xmlns="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.1"> <Document> <name>xxx.kml</name> <metadata><igoicon><filename>xxx.bmp</filename></igoicon></metadata>
Save and close the document
Disconnect the satnav device from the computer and turn it off. On restart the sat nav will write new files to “POI”; these allow the satnav to interpret and use your poi information.
Each *.kml file has 3 corresponding files (*.kix *.kns *.kst) The *.kix,*kns and *kst files will have the same prefix name as the *kml file that they belong to. If you edit a *.kml file or change its icon then you must delete the 3 files that belong to it. On restart satnav will then write new files with the updated information

Text for How to edit a KML File (formatting is a bit crap but hopefully clear enough):
Select .kml file and open in Notepad….IMPORTANT: after ANY poi updating .kml file OR .bmp - delete corresponding *.kix *.kns *.kst files
NOTE: poi coordinates are positioned in-between <kml> <documents> AND </documents></kml> as follows:
******************************* <kml> <documents> XXXXXXXXXXXXX </documents> </kml> *******************************

Below is an example of the text you might find in a .kml file: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <kml xmlns="http://earth.google.com/kml/2.1"> <Document> <name>Special_ES.kml</name><metadata><igoicon><filename>Special.bmp</filename></igoicon></metadata> <Placemark> <name>CL-605 Camping Zamora-poss road access</name><description>http://www.gps-data-team.com/</desc...ates>-5.72317,41.4881,0</coordinates></Point> </Placemark> <Placemark> <name>Camping Villanova Benidorm</name><description>http://www.gps-data-team.com/</desc...s>-0.106769,38.544783,0</coordinates></Point> </Placemark> </Document> </kml>

All the info for a particular POI is in-between <Placemark> and </Placemark>
To delete a POI remove entirely all text including the <Placemark> and </Placemark>
To alter the name edit the text between <name> xxx </name> taking care only to alter the existing text in-between and NOT the HTML markers or symbols.
To alter the position edit the existing co-ordinates between <coordinates> xxx</coordinates>, in the exact same position, format and spacing as the original, again taking care only to alter the existing co-ordinates in-between and NOT the HTML markers or symbols.
IMPORTANT: after ANY poi updating/editing of .kml file OR .bmp - DELETE corresponding *.kix *.kns *.kst files
In the files given as examples there is also info for description and an icon.
The description is also for use by Google Earth/Maps, but you can edit in your own in-between <description> xxx </description>; which iGO will display.
The icon is for display by Google Earth/Maps and not used by iGO
Shut off sat nav and restart

I noticed that Pwilmo had included the following paragraph in his manual:
No Copyright © pwilmo .. copy, paste, edit, do as you please with the information and pictures contained here within. Pass it on to help others
So, I have loaded it to the Resource Section. Hopefully it will be useful until Pwilmo has chance to sort out the replacement.

Note that this is all Pwilmo's work and I claim no credit for it at all.

Just as well you're not standing as a UKIP candidate in the next election or you would be in trouble.

We got the Manual for our 7" Chinese Truck SatNav wich look same/similar to others and cost only £42.90, so far work great.
The Manual may be of help to others - see link:

Unfortunately the iGo 8 manual is dated 2008. :(
Most of us are on iGo 9, which is covered in the manual available now in the resources section.

Alternatively, here is another source for the iGo Primo, although I am sure that will have been updated by now.

Cheers,

Jock.
