Hi, i have a Garmin c340.
do you know if i can download these POI files on your website directly to my garmin, or do i need toinstall an SD card for them?
also, do you know if there a memory limit as to how many POI files can be downloaded?
According to the users manual, you need a USB cable, you need to insure the USB drivers for your Garmin have been loaded on your pc, and you need the Garmin POI Loader software. All of this is available on Garmin's web site for free, if it didn't come with your unit.
Then you can upload direct to your c340 with all of this. I'm not sure about loading POI's to the SD card, but I bet you can, I haven't tried it though. As to the limit, well the documentation on the C series says that it has max 500 waypoints, but doesn't list POI's. Sometimes they are treated the same, but on your unit I can't say for sure.
All of this data is available at:
If you have any problem downloading anything there, I have copies of all that I've listed above on my web site. Let me know if you need it and I'll give you the link via email.
thanks so much. i will get the POI loader and try it out.
I'm not sure about the limit either but I currently have over 2300 POIs loaded in my c340.
i played around with this a little and was able to download about 41,000 poi's, but not more than that.
i gives you an error message that there is not enough space when you try to download more than that.
thanks for the help.
was that to the SD card or to the internal memory?
You just need to download the POI loader from Garmin's site. Then you download the POI file(s) and select what directory in the POI loader that the files are in and it will dump them onto your gps. You need to have the USB cable connected to your gps and the drivers installed first of course.
I tried logging into your site with the info you provided on another post but it doesn't let me in. Did you change the login info? BTW great work with all the help you give here. I have all I can do just to read all your posts!
let me make sure I gave you the right URL and login info:
Password gpsfiles (I may have given out the wrong pw)
Both username and pw must be lower case, I just tested and it works...I think I gave gpsdocs as the pw before..doh..
PS. I copied the info above from this post and pasted it in and it worked fine.
Just tested it and it worked ok..The right PW helps!
