POI Loader

 

I have successfully installed Walmart,Elks and Passport America POI's on my 765t using Garmin POI loader.

Slick.

Everytime I want to use POI Loader, however, I have to run the re-install, unzip the file, check on the user agreement, then load the program.

It doesn't seem to want to instal on my computer permanently.

Is this the norm? Shouldn't I be able to just go to the Desktop, click on the Icon and use the program.

sounds like you are running

sounds like you are running the installer again

the actual poi loader program should be in your garmin directory on your computer...just create a shortcut to that on your desktop

Click start on your computer then programs then Garmin and you should see poiloader.Setup for XP.

Installer didn't create shortcut on desktop

Installer didn't create shortcut on start menu

I had to create shortcut on desktop after locating executable file on c drive.

I'm in the same boat

The same happened to me. FYI, I'm running Windows 7.

I installed the loader on my

I installed the loader on my desktop and it is the zippered file. Works fine though maybe just a little slower than if it were un-zippered.

Using POI Loader

I also have this experience. The downloaded POIs are fantastic. But each time I use the POI Loader (from the shortcut on the desktop) it has to unzip and reinstall and I have to agree to the licensing. Just seems that there are extra steps.
Thanks for any input. BTW, I am using Vista.

It sounds like you are clicking on the file you downloaded rather than the installed application.

Look on your Start Menu for the program under Garmin.

What a dope I am!

Thanks, Mama. Guess I'm so used to being led by the hand on downloading files that I expected that step to be in the installation process. Appreciate your patience. Here we go with our pois!!

I was doing the same thing.

I was doing the same thing. Doh.
