I have a Garmin 750 and new to this forum. Just downloaded several POI files, imported to the Garmin, but I can't find them.
Touch where to,extras and touch custom pois last for them to show.
They are not there, but I right cliked on the file, send to: Garmin am I doing something wrong?
Did you use poiloader to download them?
I just saved them to my desktop and sent to the garmin, canyou explain
Their are several methods for custom pois.Here is the easy way .Later on you may want to use subfolders to establish categories.
1.Make a folder on your computer and give it a name. Example My poi's.
2.Download the csv or gpx file and put them in that folder.
3.If you want to add a bmp or mp3. Download from site and also add to the same folder but make sure you name them the same as the file you want them to go with except the extensions.
>My pois=Main Folder
4.Run poiloader http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/ and select the My pois folder.
5.If you want alerts use manual mode instead of express.
6.You should get message so many pois are loaded at the end of the download.
7.On GPS go to where to then extras and touch custom pois and you should see them.
8.Every time you run poiloader it will overwrite the existing files.
Edit.I emailed you some information on using subfolders.Just in case you want to try it now or later.
thanks a lot, I should have read the instructions.
Appreciate the help
