Hi, Just got the Nuvi 680 and I am wondering if these POI's will work on the Laptop GPS as well. I see that they open up in an Excel file format. Do I just enter the Long/Lat and the name and address etc in a Excel file and boot it up to the Nuvi? As you might see, I am new to the Nuvi and DL'ing POI files. any discussion would be a great help.
Now, as far as getting the poi's to your nuvi...
I'd suggest checking out the "getting started" and "faq" tabs at the top of the page.
In the Faq section under "creating poi files" you'll find "Garmin CSV file format"
you will find the proper syntax.. long/lat,name,comment
You'll also find that you don't have to use excel, even though the files end up with the excel icon.
All the info you need to create and load custom poi's are within the halls of this web site.
