Streetpilot C340

 

I need to know if I can download POI's to the SD card I purchased and where do they show up.Some people say you can while others say no way. Also interested in putting icons like Macdonald's, Sonic, etc. where they will show up on my map.I am new with this GPS.

Sorry, but the SD card is only for maps. POI's can only be loaded to internal memory on the C340.

use ur SD card in your camera

Sorry to say but ur SD card is pretty well useless in the 340.

It is a nice unit that does the job of getting you from A to B but that's it.

It does not read POI's and the like from an SD card.

As for the .bmp files. click on the ICONS link at the top of the page. The FAQ is at the bottom of the icon list.

Good luck.... the learning curve isn't too steep. Lots of people here to help with questions.

SD card useless

Does the nuvi accept SD card as a source of POI file? Since the 340 accept POI file only in its internal memory what the capacity? I cannot delete the other voice file I install. Any tips? Thanks

.

The nuvis will read Custom POIs from the SD card.

The c3xx series has approximately 2MB of space for Custom POIs. You typically will be able to load between 15,000 - 18,000 POIs in that amount of space.

No, you can't delete any of the voice files on the c3xx series.

The SD card on the c3xx series is used only for supplemental maps.

StreetPilot 340 for sale?

Thanks Motorcycle Mama. I guess I have to live with the shortcoming streetpilot. I cannot sell at ebay unless I'm willing to sell it at the low prices when I brought it. sad

The nuvi will be on my Christmas list. razz
