I am new to this. I tried everything to transfer POI file to my new Maestro 3225 but with no luck. I am doing everything I gathered from the forums and after transfering the file using Magellan POI editor I am unable to see the file in Magellan. I can se the file when hook my GPS with computer in \\USR\CPOI but when go to enhance in my GPS to select the file it tels me "My POI files have not been loaded on the Magellan GPS".
Try resetting it, push the tiny reset button....See if that works....That did the trick for me....
Thanks fo rreplying. I had tried this trick as wellbut did not work Do you 3225 ?
I loaded my POI in the SD card and it worked fine, why don't you try that.
Don't use the software just open your gps from MY COMPUTER and open the MAPS folder then replace the existing file with he new POI file. I would back up the old fist just in case.
It's not gonna work that way with his Magellan.....AND replacing files in the internal memory can be a dangerous thing to do if you aren't SURE about what you are doing.
Thanks guys. I finally figured it out. When I explored into my MAgellan \\CPOI folder the file extension was not showing up I reconverted the CSV with MGLN format and it worked. Thanks agian
How do I know if I was successful when downloading the 6 million POI's to my Magellan 3225? I think it worked, but I'm not sure.
Well let's see........if you removed the OLD POI file and you are now still seeing some POIs.....I wonder where they could be coming from ??
Sorry, couldn't resist.
A really good clue would be a POI file that is now MUCH larger than the original. Hopefully you saved a copy of the original.
You know that downloading is successed when you go to POI of your Magellan and see that it displayed much more categories than before. Also, you can check out, for example, nearest restaurant, it will show you more locations.
The file size is approx 188mb, but a quick way to check is go to POI and see if there is a listing for campgrounds. The original 1.3 million did not show this category.
