Garmin POI Loader | How do I remove custom POI files from my Garmin GPS?

Garmin POI Loader (v 2.4.0 or higher) has an option to uninstall all custom POI's from your GPS.

Using this feature doesn't remove the regular built-in POIs that were pre-installed on your GPS.

However, for units that come preloaded with the the NTTS trucking database, it appears that POI Loader DOES delete this information. Like custom POI's, it's stored in a GPI file.

Garmin Memory Cards | How do I save to a SD memory card from POI Loader?

You'll need to have a card reader attached to your computer, and you'll need to have the SD card in the reader when you start POI Loader.

When you start POI Loader, it will find the card and list it as one of the available devices where you can send POI data.

POI Files | Why do CSV files have an Excel icon?

Microsoft Excel can read .csv files, but so can many other programs. When Excel is installed on your computer, it automatically associates the .csv extension with Excel. This is why the files show with an Excel icon.

If you look closely at the icon, you'll notice it's slightly different than the icon that's normally used for Excel spreadsheets / workbooks.

Garmin POI Loader | What file formats can POI Loader read?

Garmin's POI Loader software can read .gpx (GPS exchange format) and .csv (Garmin comma separated values) files.

Note that if you use .wav files for sound, you must have sox.exe (see for details) in the same directory that contains POI Loader.exe.
