    Garmin POI installation



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    1. Download and install the latest version of POILoader from Garmin: POI Loader for Windows Updates & Downloads for Windows or Garmin: POI Loader for Mac Updates & Downloads for Mac.

    2. Download the POI zip file and make a note of where you have unzipped the Wild Camping POI files - you will need to access the Garmin folder from POILoader..



    3. Connect your Garmin device to your computer using the USB cable. Wait for the device to show it is connected and ready to receive files (Black screen with an ICON at the bottom showing it is connected to the computer.)

    4. Run POILoader.

    5. Select Garmin Device as Where to save your Points of Interest.

    6. Press Next and wait for the program to find your satnav. The satnav will be shown in the box labeled Device:.

    7. Press Next. The program will ask the location of the files to be loaded. Use the BROWSE button and select the FOLDER noted in step 2 above.

    8. Select the measurement units used for your satnav. Feet and Miles per hour or Meters and Kilometers.

    9. The satnav suggests running the program in Automatic. For BASIC file loading, this is sufficient. Press Next.

    10. POILoader will begin to convert the POI files and ICONs and load them to your satnav. If POILoader encounters an error with a source file, it will tell you the name of the file POI file containing an error. When finished, POILoader will tell you the number of POI successfully loaded to your device.

    11. Disconnect your device using the Stop or Eject USB device.

    12. Power up the satnav and select WHERE TO -> EXTRAS and see if CUSTOM POI is displayed. Press CUSTOM POI and you should see a list of all the POI loaded.

    chris thank you for the updated poi files.
    i've downloaded the current poi files on to my garmin 205.
    is there a way to check that i've got the present files & not the old ones still on my device.
    thanks

    Hi Tony

    Did you use POI Loader to put the POI data onto your 205?

    If so, I have to assume that the previous files have been overwritten by the March 2011 set. (Remember that the new release is a complete new set of data and is intended to replace the earlier data.)

    Regards

    Chris

    Hi Canalsman, I've used the Garmin POI downloader and it's telling me that the POIs are successfully installed on my nuvi 255W sat nav, but when I open up the POI folder on the sat nav the Wilding POIs aren't there...??? Thanks. I used a data cable to do the transfer.

    I dont think they appear in the POI folder, they are in the Extras file.

    Brilliant Thanks

    The combination of terribly clever tech and committed individuals here has resulted in a thing of beauty.

    Thanks Canalsman and al those who have worked on these files and POIs.

    Amazing
