Where is the data for the stock POIs stored in the Nuvi, and is there an update? They have restaurants, etc. listed and I noticed that a pizza place they have in there has since changed names a couple of times since the one they list, and we're talking at least 3 or 4 years ago.
Is that data stored in the 006D135900 file? If not, where is it coming from, the basemap?
It is a part of the map data.You will have to fill out form for change http://www8.garmin.com/cartography/mapSource/errorForm.html .
Just to add to charlesd45's post, there is NO way to edit the built in POIs. You just have to wait for Navteq/Garmin to update the POI.
There is an Error Near my home... GPSr tells me to take left on the road, but the road has no left at all. I had sent Garmin/Navteq an Email 2-years back thru the Error Report Form... It still is not corrected in the latest update!!!
I have sent in many changes.Some went a year before being changed.A couple stores that have closed that I reported are going on two years now without a change.Big believer in follow up by sending changes back in again.
One example I had in FL was I could make a right turn and drive stright to the residence I was going to.The 2009 maps had me to pass the road I turned right on and go up 1 mile and make right turn then across and double back.The road had been there for years but not on the map.It took 1 yr to get that change.
Thanks to all for the info... I thought that might have been the case but wasn't sure.
