CVS vs GPX w/ Garmin 200

 

Can this model of garmin use both GPX and CVS? I am having trouble with the CVS. Help Please!!

Prescription filled?

Yes, but please note that it is CSV. CVS is a drug store, not a file type.

Strictly speaking, no.

The Nüvi can read .gpx files, which it turns into Favourites - or .GPI files which it displays as Custom POIs.

POILoader, which creates the .GPI files can use either .CSV or .GPX input. (So indirectly, you can get both sorts of files onto the Nüvi)

just make sure your csv file has data in format of Latitude, Longitude, Description!

Sorry,
