loading POIs

Welcome scooter2!

Loading POIs on StreetPilot 7200 works the same way as most newer Garmin models. You'll need to connect it to your PC with a USB cable and run a piece of software from Garmin called "POI Loader". The process takes a few steps, but they're pretty easy to follow.

As a starting point, have a look at Loading POIs with POI Loader in the POI Factory's FAQ section.

I'd recommend using one of the smaller POI files like Beaches or Waterfalls to get familiar with the process. Once the file is loaded, you should find the new POI category listed somewhere under your "Where to" menu.

If you run into any questions / troubles, just post a message here and we'll help you through the process.
