Sequence Route in Garmin

I need to create a sequence route for daily travels. It may include 20+ points. I need to be able to plan this route and put it in a sequence from closest to the most distant. I need to be able to keep stops zoned in an area so that I do not travel all over the place. Is there software or a way to do this with a Garmin 1450LMT? Thank you in advance for your information.

newbie adding pois

Have a garmin 1450lmt.

Do I have to match an icon with each file? Can I merge say all the starbucks, dunkin donuts, and jim hortons into one file and just have a coffee icon? If so, how and in what program would you do that?

Can ya tell I'm new to this?

Destinations and Via Points

On my Garmin I am able to input a primary destination and also a secondary via point. The main issue I am encountering is that I am guided to my via point destination, but then when I travel to the primary point, the Garmin keeps trying to take me back to the via point destination. In order to get to the primary point, I have to reset the travel to primary travel point.

Does anyone know of a POI console/loader converter for Destinator 6?

Would anyone know if there is a Console/Converter that would work with Destinator 6 that I could download and install on my PC?
I have an Invion 7v106 gps with US and Canada maps. I need the Destinator 6 console to convert POIs. Does anyone have this tool or know how to make the file I have work. My email is gbresser@comcast.net

This is obviously not GPS related but I am wondering if anybody is following this news. I work in the nuclear industry so I get a lot of information and need to pay some attention for work reasons.

It was midnight and in an unfamiliar town...but it is still hard for me to believe. Ron White has got it right: "You can't fix stupid."
