Magellan POI Manager! Where can I download it!

 

confused: Hi all! I have had a Roadmate 700 for four years! I just got the $99 map update! That upgraded my 700 to a 760! I now have a 760 V6! Part of this software lets one create custom POIs! after a horrible 90 minutes on the phone with magellan teck support! They tell me that the POI manager software came with the V5 update! HOWEVER I did not get that update! They had no answer for me as to how to get the software! Does anyone know where I can download the POI manager software? thanks for everybodys help!!

Here it is:

Sorry that it didn't work. I don't know what is format for 760, but for maestro Poi's are saved with .mgln extension. I just copy the .mgln extension file I created through the software and paste it in the maestro folder. Then I reset the gps. It works.

The editor that I got from

The editor that I got from the above site makes them .mgln files but the editor fails to see the 760 when it hooked up! I tried using "my computer" to move the file on the GPS and its there, I can see it but when I try to load it on the 760 it reports an error in the file! I really thank you for trying to help! any other ideas? thanks

Does resetting the gps device help?

reset as in "turning it off

reset as in "turning it off and then turning it on?" or is there a soft reset that I dont know about!
but turning it off and back on has made no difference!

If you go to this site and

If you go to this site and click on manuals 760 then poi manager page 12. http://www.magellangps.com/products/Search.asp?q=poi+manager... it will give you some info.It shows that a cd came with the unit for poi manager.If you have lost or replaced it you should contact Magellan for a new one.Maybe someone on the site who has the same unit could email you the file.

After reading this post http://groups.google.com/group/alt.satellite.gps.magellan/ms... your 700 did not come with the cd but now after the upgrade you need it.

poi mgr

I put this suggestion in another thread as well...
Maybe you could try Google-ing POI_Mgr.exe

Another option

This site doesn't have 760 software, but it does have 860T and some other roadmate models - it might work:

Custom POIs for Magellan 700

I developed a work around for the problem of Magellan failing to provide the POI editor for the 700/760 and I posted it on the group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/magellan-gps-users

Do a search there for the post "Magellan 700/760 custom POIs" for instructions.

Feedback on how it worked for you would be appreciated.
