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.
Please check our Garmin FAQ section before posting questions to the Garmin forum area.
FAQ: Garmin Nav Systems
I was wondering how many forum members have Nuvicams. If you have one then are you using it with Bluetooth and Smart Link app?
I am having lots of Bluetooth issues with this device.
As posted above, what Garmin features, that were on older, legacy GPS units, do you miss, that are no longer available on current Garmin units?
A couple that come to my mind are:
-The clock. One/some of my older Garmins allow you to select a "clock" that displays the current time, including seconds.

I think I noticed a thread somewhere on POI Factory about this but can't find it ....
Timing is everything.... I decided to do the .11 upgrade, and used the 660 as a guinea pig...
This post is entirely separate from the other recent post regarding .11 and 660...
When I got done with download... I noticed that file names were not changed, Deleted the old files, (Which seemed to take longer than I had ever remembered) and renamed new map files, and tried card.
The campground "22,525 NORTH AMERICA CAMPGROUNDS (GPX) By Rivopom" come up as an invalid file when attempted to download on a Garmin GPS
I have tried everything I can think of to remove my POI on Nuvi2555LMT
used the POI loader, removed all gpx files I could fine went into POI files removed all. Must say at my wits end Hope someone can help me out first time I had this trouble they are all gpx TourGuide files
also tried the hard reset by pressing lower right corner when booting gps on
LOL like the song stuck like glue
Garmin just published this update for Mac users
On the dash in bright sunlight on vehicle 12v power, with the display set to 100%, the display has a very noticeable and distracting bright then not so bright flicker.
No flicker at < 100%.
Anyone else or is this thing begging to be sent back?
Been using SD cards for Map Storage for years now.... and I've just thought about something.....
Normally I delete the map files from SD card prior to map upgrade.
Normally Map Files have to be renamed after download in order to run from an SD card.
I was wondering..... If I didn't delete the old files, would I still have to rename the files that are downloaded on SD card?
Maybe I had not noticed this before, but now when my 855 boots up I see something "new"? It is very hard to catch because it just shows for a second or two, but it seems to say HTTP GPSMAPPER and says to register?
Any idea where this came from? How to get rid of it?
I also have a second map showing other than the 2019.11 map.
Some folks are canoeing the entire Mississippi River and hope to break a record. You can see where they are, too.
On the Garmin website the following content can be seen in a discussion of TourGuide POI's.

I recently purchased a RV 660LMT as an aid to my RV travels. My plan is/was to use it in my tow vehicle as a car when not in the RV mode. However my tow vehicle, a 4x4 F150, also sees duty off road and often on unmaped Forrest service roads. When exploring in the past, I have used my Zumo 660LM in track mode, saving the track at days end.
