I'm new to my GPS and loading POIs. I formatted an SD card with my PC and then used POI loader to load several different CSV files such as Airports and Ham Radio Repeaters to the SD card. I can see the files on the SD card. When I put the card in the GPS, how do I see the "new topics"? I do not see any new button to press under Locations that would indicate that the GPS sees the new POI data.
Looking further at this forum, it looks like maybe it is tied to creating folders with a bitmap image in them? Then you maybe put the bmp with the csv file in the folder? What do you name the folders?
Thanks in advance!
You will have to load POIs into your Garmin unit not on SD card. C330 will not read POIs from SD card.
If the Garmin c330 won't read POIs off the SD card, what use is the SD slot?
How do I load POIs directly into the Garmin?
How do I remove POIs (that I loaded directly to the Garmin c330) that I don't want anymore?
You will have use POI Loader from Garmin to transfer POIs. You will have to use USB cable provided with the unit. Before you do it, first install USB drivers on your PC from the CD. SD card slot can only be used if you want to upgrade maps e.g. you want to load Europe maps etc.
So once you install POI loader, you will be able to delete or transfer new POIs to your C330.
I hope this is of any help.
I'm not sure about the c330 but on my nuvi 350 I use the card for photos and mp3 files.
As for loading POIs directly to the Garmin, you do it the same way as the card using the POILoader except you choose the Garmin instead of the card.
To remove unwanted POIs, when you use the POILoader it clears the old POIs on the Garmin and loads the only the new ones. So just keep the POIs you want on your Garmin in a folder and load them with the POILoader.
This is correct. The SD card on the C330 is only useable for maps from Garmin...
From the menu, select WHERE TO
then select MY LOCATIONS
You should see:
Custom POIs (if you have uploaded a POI file)
If you uploaded the POI file to your unit using the software provided over the USB port, you will have the files listed when you select Custom POIs
POIs can only be used when loaded directly to the C330, not an SD card
