How to best use custom pois

How do I most effectively use custom pois. For example; the Yellowstone poi. It lists 80 points of interest. Once I install this in my Garmin will it let me "spell" under "Where to" and then locate these 80 points of interest or will they just show on my Garmin as I drive up on them?

This week we are recognizing Tremblsi and Rocknicehunter.

Tremblsi, This week you took your camera out and got some really great shots of locations for our POI Files pages. It is really nice to know that I have an inventory of pictures just waiting to have files made for them.

This is the place to talk about things that are not gps related, you can discuss whatever you would like, as long as it is clean. Remember we have families that have their children involved in the GPS fun and we don't want to make parents feel uncomfortable when their children ask what that word means.

Have fun...

Hi Everyone,

I just bought a Garmin Nuvi880 a week ago and have been playing with it. I started to look for addons/extras for the unit and that's when I found this site.

Just wanted to stop in and say Hi.

NUVI 750 POI's

Found my POI's.

New here from NC

Just found this site and am overwhelmed with info...

Was looking for downloadable campgrounds poi's and found this

The Ultimate RV Parks & Campgrounds Directory
http://www.coolrvtoyz.com/content/ultimate-rv-parks-campgrou...

It's $49.95, do any of you have experience with it?

Any other recommendations?

Thanks,

This Is It!!!! (RF modulator solution)

Like most, I was having a real hard time enjoying satellite radio (and GPS announcements) from the fm transmitter in my StreetPilot 7200. FM stations were constantly washing out the garmin's transmitter.

I drive hundreds (sometimes over 1000) miles a week and greatly rely on my Garmin.

cute error caused by improper addressing

If one checks a route on Google Earth along the Trans Canada Hwy entering Manitoba from Ontario, it shows two restaurants right at the border. Smitty's Pancake House and a McDonald's.

Don't plan on eating there although there is a friendly Tourist info centre and truck scales at that location.

Windmills

In my travels around the US I have seen a lot of windmills. I checked the list and I don't see a POI file for windmills.
I am now retired as a long haul trucker but am willing to help on such a file.

Tele Atlas for Garmin?

Is there anyway the Tele Atlas maps can be used in a Garmin. I thought maybe someone may have come up with a work around.
I have begged and pleaded for 3 years to get my Garmin maps updated with my neighborhood streets shown and they still have not even in the latest update.

New to the site

Hello everyone. Been lurking for awhile. I finally got my Nuvi 750 the other day and can't put it down.. Thanks for everyones input. I was able to find answers to every question I have had.

Free Google 411 (no ads)

I did a quick search, didnt see this anywhere in the forums. I originally got an email telling me about a free google 411 service. I was skeptical. However, i graduated with a few people who work for google.
