Fixed

AutoUpdate delay setting
PoiEdit dit not remember the "Delay" setting you have setup in the Settings tab of the AutoUpdate Manager.
Out of Memory error when loading large GIF maps

Poi selection and the map pane
If only 1 poi was selected, it was not displayed in the map pane.
Startup screen and opening files
If one would open poi files from Windows, PoiEdit would show the PoiEdit Startup Screen anyway.

V4.5 (build 181, 2006-07-02)

Added

Windows AutoPlay.
Option to show "AutoUpdate poi's using PoiEdit" in the Windows AutoPlay dialog whenever a USB device is plugged in. This way TomTom Go and other USB device users, can start the AutoUpdate as soon as their device is plugged in (just as the option that was already available for PocketPC/ActiveSync users). You can even click "Always do the selected action" in the AutoPlay dialog of Windows to start AutoUpdate without ever having to click in the AutoPlay dialog again. You can setup PoiEdit to install the AutoPlay Handler in the PoiEdit installation.
Pocket PoiEdit.
From version 4.5, PoiEdit also support the new "Pocket PoiEdit", which you can install on your PocketPC or Windows Mobile device. Pocket PoiEdit makes it possible to update your AutoUpdate items, even when it is not connected to your Desktop PC, enabling you to download your latest pois even when you're on the road. You can download the Pocket PoiEdit installer from the PoiEdit download page. You can send the AutoUpdate items from PoiEdit to Pocket PoiEdit using the AutoUpdate Manager Pocket PoiEdit tab.
Dutch Language.
The PoiEdit GUI is translated into dutch. You can switch the language in which PoiEdit starts up from the PoiEdit installer and from the Tools menu. Note that you must restart PoiEdit in order to make the new language selection effective.
New AutoUpdate sites.
The following new AutoUpdate sites have been added to the AutoUpdate Manager:
  • bruxelles5.info
  • goedkooptanken.nu
  • poigps.com

Rename Multiple Poi's.
Option to change the descriptions of the selected poi's in the poi list in one go. This function is accessable from the right-click popup menu of the poi list in the main windows.
Batchconvert to multiple formats.
Now it is possible to convert to multiple formats at once using the Batchconvert function. This function is for instance very handy for poi site owners who wish to publish their poi files in multiple formats. You can access this function in the Batchconvert dialog, after you've selected "Multiple formats" from the "Destination Format" dropdown list.
Select poi's on map.
It is now possible to select poi's directly on the map pane of PoiEdit. To active the selection mode, click on the selection button on the toolbar directly above the map pane. This enabled you for instance, to swiftly create poi files that contain only the poi's from the region in which you are interested.
TomTom GO x10 format.
PoiEdit is now capable of reading the ov2 files saved from the new 510, 710 and 910 TomTom GO devices.
