Just tried to load the POI database onto my Garmin Nuvi 250W with no luck. Got the POI loader and all that and it says that congratulations! I have loaded 6000 new POI's (I have tried twice?) but I'm buggered if I can see them anywhere on the device. Might invest in a newer device as this has been so frustrating to use. Might use a different make perhaps. So I guess the way to use the POI database is to print all the maps from Google before setting off...

My goodness that sounds like hard work!

Sadly I don't know anything about the Garmin Nuvi 250W but maybe these links help

Garmin Points of Interest Installation Guide (http://www.sciuridae.co.uk/garmin_poi_install_guide.htm)

http://www.garmin.com/manuals/nuvi200_OwnersManual.pdf
Page 32 looked like it might help - maybe you have tried that already.

Best Wishes

I have a Garmin Nuvi 1390T and when I load the wildcamping database (only done this once so far and that was a while ago) it gets stored in;
Where To? / Extras / Custom POIs / wild camp (this maybe what I named the folder).

If yours has the same menu structure have a look, or maybe something similar.
