I'm new to the GPS game, feeling good that I managed to locate the Garmin loader and upload free poi's from this site. The most annoying part of my current Garmin-provided software is trying to locate places I know exist, but aren't on the current supplied maps. Waiting 6 mos for a new map upgrade doesn't excite me either.
Question: I've seen a few threads on a "dummyproof" way to create your own local poi files. I have a Magellan roadmate that gives you actual coordinates for any place you go. Is there a way to create files with those coordinates, for a relative dummy dude like me?
What model RoadMate are you using?
I've got a 3000T and it's got a "where am I now button" that you can use to save your current position, similar to me as in setting a waypoint or poi on my Garmin eTrex Legend. On my Legend it's more intuitive, but my question to mimic his is once I set these "where am I" locations, are they saved as POI's? I mean if I use my address book as POI's, does the roadmate series export that data similar to the POI's?
If I only had a brain...
