These are the directions for a 2014 Honda Accord.

“To Save File to USB Drive”
Save your files in separate categories (files)
This will make them easier to find when searching for them. Even if you only want to upload one category have two or more category files on your usb drive. You only have to upload the file you want. If you only have one file on your USB Drive the file will be uploaded into your Honda Navigation system as Waypoint. If you have two or more files on your USB drive the file will be uploaded as the name on the file, food, hotel, etc.

When downloading to car download each file one at a time.
Use the .kml format

Be sure you are reading File and not Folder.
Each catagory should be in it's own File, (food.kml, hotel.kml etc.)

CVS files do not work with these directions for me they have to be in .kml format.

The only way I could get the .kml format to work was using the program from this post.

When reading this:
"At the bottom of screen press select button down to select “Import from USB”"
the large select button can be moved up, down, and sideways and pushed in the middle. Do not push in the middle. Move the button down toward the floor to "Import from USB".
