    Carol, my post #98 is not how you will load the POI`s onto yours.

    Go to post #1 in the thread and the way to do it is clearly explained.

    Garmin POI Loader software (FREE)

    It's been said before, and apparently needs repeating at regular intervals, Garmin's POI Loader software is a completely free program for PC and Mac and can be downloaded from this page.

    success. Garmin Camper 660

    In the spirit of helpfulness and at the risk of repeating the endless advice previously given...

    This worked (as admin said it would !) for me ..

    I have a Garmin Camper 660

    I downloaded the POI loader (as admin recommended !) on this link -

    Garmin: POI Loader for Windows Updates & Downloads

    Once the POIs were transferred across using the POI loader, I found them by selecting -

    1. 'Where to?'

    2. 'Categories'. (Top right hand corner)

    3. Scroll down and select 'Custom POIs'

    4. Result happiness. All there - Yay, thank you God and Admin.

    Was that to update Ian? Phil usually does mine but I won't see him before I go to Spain. I'm a bit apprehensive about trying it myself in case I co*k the lot up!

    They reported that the PoIs will appear when travelling, as they are located in transit ( there being none local to me)

    Fingers crossed then that Ill be able to see the pins / flags as I travel and make impromptu stops rather than plan a route.

    Hope this helps others like me who are struggling with manuals and edges of knowledge while frustration mounts to the cry of "is it me...."
    Having used a TomTom for many years (which displays the WC icons on the map) I recently purchased a Garmin Camper 770. I have successfully downloaded the wildcamping files and I too am left wondering if it displays the icons? since your post regarding this is quite old did you find out?
