Some in-dash infotainment systems use Garmin for navigation.
Custom POIs can sometimes be installed on these in-dash systems using Garmin's POI Loader software via a memory card or disk.
In other cases, custom POIs might require an alternative process or not be available.
Discussion threads for some makes/models are linked below.

FAQ: Garmin Nav Systems
is there anyone who has the experience to tell me why i coulnd't get the pOI Alert working in my GPSMAP 276cx. the same file has been added to the Nuvi 3597 and working fine.
Haven't been active in a while as been using the smartphone but I am looking to replace an older Garmin unit and looking for the best unit with traffic that don't need a smartphone to provide it per the preference of who will be using it.
Was looking at a Refurbished DriveSmart 51 LMT-S but see needs the smartphone app.
DriveSmart 61 firmware updated to version 4.40 as of November 13, 2018.
Fixed an issue that caused wireless map updates to fail.
I had a 1490 and I could edit POIs & waypoints on the screen.
I transferred my userdata.gpx and current.gpx file to my 3597.
I can add a waypoint but I can't edit the address or the name. I copied the above files to my computer and edited them then copied back and overwrote the ones on the unit. It still shows the same data even though the files have the correct info.
Any noticeable changes on this update?
I have been using a Garmin GPS on my dash since 2007. I got a DriveLuxe51 last year and love it but now I am keeping it mostly in my glove box.
I have the following Garmins that I have added memory to:
Garmin Nuvi 350
Garmin Nuvi 360
Garmin Nuvi 500
When I update maps, however, it onlu gives me the option of updating a portion and not the entire United States. I memory that I h ave added to each one should be more than enough to download the entire country. What do I need to do to use the additional memory?
Any other Dezl users? After I updated to 2019.30 the trucking unique info was not on my unit anymore. Any others have this problem or is my situation unique?
I installed the new map in unit and downloaded jcv file and unzipped it and was ready to install it. 1450 was plugged in computer to charge up before the jcv install. I totally forgot about it and computer went to sleep. When I did get back it was dead. Thought to wake up and let it charge up some. Nothing. Unplugged usb and tried again. Nothing.
Edit: The above download link was changed and the current file download is in a native, uncompressed file format that will not need to be unzipped.
We have 2 2689LMT’s.
Both unit’s Maps were updated this evening.....
On Both, GE said the Update was Successful....
I tested both in their cars afterward. And.....
As I normally do, I check to see the map version info
First one OK. See that it loads maps OK.
Next one reports new map and Foursquare......
Come and get it!
What's the best way to delete old maps? I have them back to 2008. I don't see a way in MapSource. Do you just delete the directory?
I'm looking at buying the Garmin Oregon 700 soon but am wondering if I should hold off for January? Do you think that they will come out with a newer model? I plan on buying their 24k topo maps as well.
Hello, is there a way to test if the mp3 files loaded with Garmin POI Loader will play when approaching the location without taking the gps on the physical location. I have a Nuivi3490.
Occasionally my Nuvi 2689 wakes up from standby with nothing but a white screen. What I usually have to do is then fully power down by holding the power button in for about 10 seconds, and then power back up. This essentially causes a reboot.
Anyone encounter this or have a remedy. The unit has had maps and software upgraded several times and the issue still occurs.
I just purchased the POI red light and speed camera subscription.
Is there anything available for live police reports similar to Waze either through POI Factory or another company for Garmin GPS units?
Selected a saved location i hadn't been to this morning and after not taking the exact path it wanted it picked up on my route. Trip was about 22 miles and about half way there it suddenly was not showing me the way. Like i was just riding down the road. My next turn it stayed silent. I turned then pulled over and entered the location again and everything worked fine. No idea what happened.
