Creating POI's with google earth,poi edit, and garmin poi loader

 

Ok i appolgize if this has been posted before but i am new to the portable GPS and am trying to create my own pois. I first searched google earth found what I wanted and saved as kml file. when I opened the file in POI edit all was left was the name and x/y co-or. I would like to still have the Address and phone numer in my poi's without having to manually edit each one. is this possible? And if so how do I get this info to transfer automatically.

Thanks all

Wichie

Do you mean that you had

Do you mean that you had other POI's that you had loaded and they are now gone? If so, what you need to do is either reload each file every time you use the POI loader, or put all of the files in the same directory and point the POI Loader to that parent directory.

The loader automaticly clears all custom POI's on the GPS before it starts loading.
