Hello and Welcome...

 

Well... as it states, Hello.

We just purchased a Garmin Nuvi-1450.

I just figured out how to get the POI files with sound and custom icon installed.

Now I'm looking to learn more about creating the custom POI files; however, the discussions and instructions are occationally disjointed. SO, can someone here point me in the right direction?
