Use EPE to open the POI, or fave. Double click and the lat/long will be displayed.

Favorites

Favorites are in the \Garmin\GPX folder and are called current.gpx

Hook your nuvi to your PC. Once you know what drive was assigned to your nuvi, then navigate there.

make a backup of the entire nuvi - you will be glad you have one later.

Go to the backup folder and find current.gpx

Get EPE from
http://turboccc.wikispaces.com/Extra_POI_Editor
and install it.

use EPE to open favorites and find the coordinates.

I just downloaded the program. It makes me ask if TomTom units allow additional information to be stored in a POI. I could not convert a Garmin POI to TomTom and maintain all of the details.

Tom=Tom uses only the first three columns, Lat/Lon/Name.
