Newbie seeking advice on reliable sources for pois'

 

Hello everyone,

I am new at this so please bear with me. I have a magellan 4250 and would like to add red light and speed cam poi's to it. I am seeking the most reliable sources for data.

While I was attempting to enter some poi's through the editor, it asks for altitude which was not in the files I downloaded It would not let me proceed without it. What do people do in this case?

Altitude?

That's strange. I guess Magellan is thinking ahead to hover cars!

Just try inputting 1 or 10 or 100 and see what happens.

Altitude

Just put 0. I have the 5310 and have not had to enter any altitudes. The editor puts them all at 0 by itself.

When you click on "Current Location" it lists the altitude along with the coordinates. I live 1472 feet above sea level.

I am not sure if I can upload the POI's on my garmin. Where can I get information on how and what will work with my machine?
Thanks

Garmin's web site has some info plus . . .

One other way to start now that you found this site is to visit the 'faq' link in light blue near the top, right of the site.

Then click on the link:
POI newbie? - Visit the Getting Started page.

And there's always G. Hayman's great site at

He's a frequent contributor here on POI Factory so you'll find a ton of stuff if you search it.

Have fun!
