Awhile back, I created and submitted a POI file for Air Museums in Texas. I drove by one of the sites at 70 mph on the freeway this afternoon and tapped the "car" and told it to save the coordinates and of course, named the site. My question is this, can I find the coordinates in that Favorite so that I can send in an update for the POI file?
Once the location is saved it does not display the coordinates anymore. I guess you can use Mapsource(I just got a Garmin so I don't know the full details on it yet), to import your favorites and it will show the coords there. You can also go to google maps and zoom into the location. Right click the location and select "center map here". Then in the upper right corner of the map above the "map, satellite, terrain" option click the "link" button. The link will look like this with the coords..
It may be dependant on the model you have. Which unit do you have?
Thanks, Absolute. I did find the museum in Google Earth and just took the coordinates from where the mouse "hand" was, positioned at the entrance.
It's a nuvi 200.
Search the posts for a program called Nuvi Editor by SlowJim. It will download your favorites from the Nuvi, allow you to modify them for Lat/Long data, add additional information or other changes you want to make. One thing it cannot do is delete any from the favorites, so you need to do that manually - 1 at a time, through the screens.
I didn't know you could center your mouse click and then get the co-ordinates of that spot. Thanks for the info.
