Hi,
I know the name of a college but do not know the address.
How do I find it on this device?
Thank you

So your POIs don't list ANY schools?

What maps do you have?

I do not see any.
Unless I am doing something incorrectly.
Or even something like Mcdonals.
Should they be in POI ?
Thanks

i don't think there are colleges in POIs unless you uploaded it.
check in google the address of the college and type it in your garmin.

So if you goto Where To?, Points Of Interest there's no POI categories?

Schools are listed under Community but on my unit there is no listing for colleges.

Yes, I find the list of schools under community. Thanks
But it shows the same name many miles away instead of the one onnly 1 mile away.
Should this list be updated? if so how?
Thank you

Those POIs are built into the maps and are updated by Garmin.

Just Google the address and use that or try PGPSW POIs Community - College, but there's only 21 listed though..
