Hi all
I've loaded a POI file which I can see on the Nuvi when connected to my PC but how can I then navigate to any of the address's via the Nuvi. I assumed I would be able to search a list on the unit and be able to select an entry and just press go. I've seen the same files on a Tom Tom and they all appear as individual icons that you select and then scroll down the list which does seem easy. Any help appreciated.

you need to use special software to put pois onto the device, by the sounds of it you just copied and pasted the file?

go and grab poiloader for free from: http://gamin.com/poiloader

then run that to copy the file(s) across

you then use: where to / extras / custom pois

to find them

Hi MaFt

I have used the Garmin software downloader to load the files onto the unit and as I said I can see the POI file in the correct folder on the unit as described elsewhere on this forum.

Edit. I've found them thanks, I did look in custom pois but did not realise you had to select it to see the downloaded files. Surprised
