Import Address Book

 

question Help question question Please Help, I know several people have asked about this in different forums, but has anyone figured out how to edit the Magellan 4250 Address Book on a PC.

1. So far I have used the POI loader to upload Custom POI's to the 4250 but .......these don't do much good because you cannot use them in the TRIP PLANNER ????

2. Is there any way to converting the Custom POI file to the 4250 Address Book file on the SD Card by using an external Text Editor???

Thanks!.

1) I think that is correct. You can, however, route TO a single POI if you can get it up on the screen.

2) I doubt it. The built-in files are in a database format (proprietary?).

Others may know more.......or go here for more "technical" information:

Ther is one ting you can do

Ther is one thing you can do and that is pick your POI file and then pick your point and then save it in your FAV or address book then you can pull this FAV in your trip planner. I tried this on my 3225 and it worked....
