Installing poi's into a 4350-70 Magellan..
Magellan files must be in .kml format for the 4350
Step 1. Plug in your 4350 to your computer (USB) wait tell the computer sees it.
Step 2. If the Magellan folder doesn't pop up automatic, then go to My Computer and look for a folder called (TFAT)
Step 3. Double click on TFAT folder, then double click on Map Folder, then finally Poi Folder, that's where all your .kml files will go.
If you are you familiar with converting files to .kml? It's actually pretty easy. There's a program called poi edit and you can download it at www.poiedit.com. I have a better time downloading files in Tom Tom format and then changing them to .kml, less errors.
When you start poi edit, click on the X to get rid of the small start up screen, then go to Tools and Batch covert. In source directory click to locate where you download all your poi files. At the bottom of that window click for Tom Tom .ov2 in second window it shows where its going to go. At the bottom of that click for Google .kml, click covert and your done, file will be in C: Programs/Denote. Hope this helps.

Thanks for taking the time to detail this out. Got to say it is puzzling why Magellan would change the approach to adding POIs and actually making it harder than before. Not a great way to build upon a following for their units.
No problem! One fault Magellan has is Custom POI's.
I installed the Red-light and Speed Cameras but I don't know how to get the beeping sounds. I tried to change the sounds and adjusted the distance until when you hear the beep but I still didn't hear it. Also, I can see the position of the cameras but I just don't hear them when I approach them. Thanks in advance for any help.
BTW, thank you very much for the guide.
Never tried to load cameras, not sure if you can load sounds, one fault Magellan has is it not POI friendly. But still a great GPS.
Thanks, you're right, if I hadn't read your guide I would have been lost. Thanks.
