Can another owner of a Garmin DriveSmart 55 tell me how to access custom POIs on that device? I just bought a DS55 to replace my 15-year-old nüvi 250W. To access custom POIs on my nüvi, I’d go Where to > Extras > Custom POIs. I don’t see the equivalent of that on the DS55.
Is that because I haven’t yet loaded custom POIs? If yes, how do I get to them once I do?
Where To? > Categories > Other Categories > Custom POIs
On mine I click on Where To? and made a Custom POIs shortcut here. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Add Shortcut to create it. You may need at least one POI installed first.
Thank you, jackrabbit000. I found them right there. And you're right: to see Custom POIs, you first have to load them onto the device.
Many thanks also for the tip about creating shortcuts. I didn't see that in the DS55 manual or anywhere else. A handy thing to know!
I appreciate the link to the Custom POIs info on the Garmin website.
That's the second time recently that another member was able to find stuff on the Garmin website that my own searches failed to find.
I'm just now getting back to traveling and GPS, after an absence of four years. I've managed to forget a lot in that time! It's great that POI Factory members like you are so knowledgeable and are willing to share their knowledge.
