new & interesting places for your GPS

New Garmin - POI help needed please

 

Just got a new Garmin 760 and have now found this great site on POI uploading. I will admit that I am on the short yellow school bus but when it comes to uploading new POI and I seem to be struggling.

I will be traveling from NC to MI for Christmas and would like to know all the Taco Bell and McDonald locations on the way. I am hoping to have an ICON appear on my GPS that indicates if these restuarants are near as we travel. Can someone please walk me through the upload steps to accomplish this? Thanks in advance.

Thanks - loaded up Taco Bell

Thanks - loaded up Taco Bell with success. However, is there a way to see all Taco Bell Locations automatically - without going to custom POI and selecting the one closest? My goal is to have the custom POI that I load up appear automatcally as I am traveling.

There are many discussion threads here regarding being able to see custom POI icons while driving. This is one of the more detailed topics:

It may be for a different model than yours, but the ideas are the same.
