    The Garmin POI file is quite small - 192Kb - so is this really necessary?

    How much free space is there on the in-built memory?

    If you input an SD card to your Garmin and proceed as normal with the POI's and other files, the Garmin will utilise the extra space as needed, without you specifically loading to the SD card.

    Hi all

    Although I have been lurking on this site for a couple of years, I have subscribed to full membership mainly I admit to have the POI files on my Garmin NUVI 1310.

    I have downloaded the files to my desktop, but the file is in Winzip, which when I unzip gives me a dozen or so files so I am usure exactly what I would download to my NUVI Do I download the zip up file or what. Also at this time I do not seem to have an extra file on my NUVI.

    I am not exactly new to this, I have had VW campervans for around 15 years or so, and am very much into wilding.

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    Smokey

    Hi Smokey

    Please read through the following thread (if you haven't already done so) http://www.wildcamping.co.uk/forums/...w-release.html

    That, in combination with this thread, and the readme.pdf file, should point you in the right direction.

    Regards
