Does anyone know what the limit is for POI's for the C330.
I think someone once told me it was 500 POI's.

Anyone know for sure, or have more than that ??

I do know it will only show the closest 50, but the other 400+ I have are still in the machine, you just have to spell search for them.


Frequently Asked Questions



The c330 will hold 500 waypoints, but "waypoints" are different than "custom POIs".

The specs posted on Garmin's site don't say how many custom POIs the c330 will hold. I suspect the limit may be based on free memory, so the number might vary based on how long the name / description fields are in each record.

The browse list on my i2 also shows the 50 nearest, but I can use the spell feature to find more distant locations. Right now, I have the 17,000 island locations loaded without a problem.

Have you tried a spell search for custom POIs on the c330?


Spell search works

I have my Paintball sites loaded.
Thats around 400 from South East
and over 100 North East sites.

And they all are on the C330.
Like I said, It only shows the first 50, but ALL the others ARE on the system, I just have to spell search for them.

I might try to load a bigger POI file, and just play to see if it holds all of them.
I'll post what I find out.
